Getting better

I normally don’t get to play this course until later in the year or after the first of the year. Usually the coarse is so dried out and in poor condition, but today things were looking pretty good. Another person told me someone else took the coarse over. I have always liked the place and hope to see improvements continue

Port Charlotte

This course has changed. What was once a beautifully maintained course with a great layout has been let go by ownership. The greens have lots of bare spots, the fairways are full of mixed weed and various grasses with no consistency, the tees are chopped up in places.
What this course needs now is an influx of money to bring it back to its former self. Covid could have a lot to do with lack of maintenance along with a lack of customers.
But the opportunity to bring it back for the winter crowd is shrinking by the day.
I love the course layout and its challenges but it needs fixing if management expects to attract the seasonal crowds.

Worse shape I've ever seen it in.

The greens had mostly sand on it it and weeds growing on them. Fairways had little grass to hit off of. I think this was VERY overpriced!

Don't go for a while

I had played the course in the past and liked it enough to go back and bring a buddy who had never played it. The major problem is no one told us the entire course is under construction. This is due to replacing all the tee boxes at one time. Temp tee boxes are placed on terrible locations. Turning the course into a par 64 I think. Not a lot of good holes out there right now. Don't understand doing all tee boxes at same time. Will not go back for a while. Also the rest of the course needed mowing and general attention. Neglected I guess to all the work on the tee boxes.
Might be ok next year this time but for now----- play elsewhere.

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.
