Out of towners beware!

Will never play there again. To start, you hit of mats that are very hard and well over 10 years old. No forgiveness. The course is very short. Layout is average. Difficulty....not really. ZERO water jugs on the course....IN FLORIDA! Did find a drinking fountain around hole 12. Nasty looking. Minimal good for turn. No clubhouse to relax enjoy talking about after the round. But the biggest problem was the greens and tee boxes. Horrible slow. Thick. Patches of weeds-cover-Crab grass. I swear on the last par 3, you're teeing off on the side of a doughnut! Not a flat spot anywhere. And on the last par 5, as we're teeing off, a worker decides to turn on the sprinklers on the fairway. Usually people run them about 5 min and turn them off. Not this guy. After waiting and realizing he's NOT turning them off. We dodged the water as we hit our second and third shots....and fourth due to rising to not get wet. Partner quit the hole, I began to chip on and try to putt while the worker is dragging his huge hose all over the green watering the fringe and the green. "Club Med"...more like CLUB DRED!

Good Value

The course is flat and open with a few water hazards. Sand traps around the greens could use some help. they were hard packet. While the greens did not look great they were smooth and consistent. Looks like the were late in putting down the pre-emergent weed control. The staff was great from the bag drop right on through. Staff was up front and informed us about the greens.Fairways were very nice.For a $15 round we got what we paid for and we had a fun time.

So much potential

This is the second time I have played this course. It is a good layout but just doesn't get the attention it needs. It was extremely wet conditions because of record rains in the area. With a little tlc to the tees and bunkers this would be a super course. I enjoyed my round but would love to see some what this course could be with a little attention

Nice, experience, no pressure. Customer friendly

Been here a dozen times over last few years. They have improved the conditions. Usually a good value. A pleasant place , not pristine, but fine for regular retired guys like us.

Very nice course

Course was in great shape even though it has not rained in a long time. Pro shop staff seemed annoyed that they had to wait on you.
