Horrible conditions

if I would have paid anything more than a hot deal I would be livid, worse condition I have seen since I moved to Florida 3 years ago, tee boxs dirt, fairways mostly dirt and greens full of weeds, lucky if you could find grass to hit from, frankly don't waste your money

Course is in pretty bad shape I might play there for 10 dollars just to get out and hit the ball if no other course is available with a decent price

Good Course, weather has taken it’s toll.

Greens are in nice shape, fairways have many areas with little or no grass. Practice putting area in rough shape. One can tell that the grounds crew is working hard to maintain the course. It appears the weather and considerable play to this point has taken their toll. Having played this course for many years, there is no question that it will recover and one would certainly rate it higher. Some good soaking rain and continuing care will turn the course around.

needs water

have played here occasionally over the years and like the layout. Pro shop attendant was very congenial, starter not so much. course suffering from the lack of water, haven't had much rain in many days, would help I'm sure. while the greens didn't look pretty, they did putt true and very fast. They are hard but a well struck short-to-medium iron will hold fairly well, best to play a little "links style" golf.
fairways had little to no grass. conditions need to improve significantly before I'll be back at any price.

Bad, real bad

I can review this course in 2 words: GOAT RANCH. This is without question the worst course I’ve ever played, no grass on the tees, no grass on the fairways, and the greens I don’t even know how they can call those things greens. Waste of time and money. Don’t play here.

Terrible

This is the third time I have played this course in the past 10 years...it really sucks.

The course is in terrible condition.
Rocket fast greens, hard like rock.

I will never play this course again.

It looks like this course is about to close up.

pathetic golfcourse

This course is absolutely pathetic it is worse than a cow pasture so bad that I don’t know if a cow could find any food out there if he was grazing. The greens are horrific and it’s hard-pressed to find grass on that green rather than brown and some disease.
Whoever owns this golf course or just bought it obviously doesn’t know zero about golf they get the people in there granted only because it’s cheap and even a cheap one is overpaying.

The course was a disappointment. The conditions were at best fair. The greens were inconsistent.
I would not go back again.

Got golf passes for $19 each on "Local Flavor"

Truly a $19 golf course.
Fairways were different, greens were special, tee boxes were challenging...putting green was difficult to read.
Carts were great and the cart paths were nice.
A lot of fake sand traps in many of the fairways.
For $19 it will bring a tear to your eye.
The bar was locked at the end of our round...we were unable to have a beer and review our shots.

If you pay more than $19 to play, you probably will find the course is not in the best of shape
