Unfortunate deteriorating conditions

Just 18 months ago the course was shut down to renovate the course. I had left for the summer and just returned and was looking forward to playing. but the course is already getting bad. They are making the greens smaller and where they are supposed to have the first cut or fairway is bare and dying grass. Many of the fairways are brown and gave the appearance like it has not been watered in some time although we have had storms and rain in the area. Because of the cold (or the conditions) there were very few playing; a twosome ahead and a twosome we let through after 9 holes. So pace of play was great! Overall I was disappointed.

Back Again

We had played this course a few weeks ago and found it a bit rough. We knew it was under new ownership and that improvement was being made. I'm glad to say that the fairways and traps have gotten much better. The greens while not perfect were playable and improving. The course layout is challenging on a few holes front and back. All in all it's worth playing again.

Coming Back

We got to the course about 40 minutes early and were able play right away.

Course conditions weren't the best as the greens weren't consistent in speed. They were not bad otherwise. The fairways were dry and patchy with a lot of cow grass and weeds. From what we understand the course is under new management and is coming back slowly. There is a fair amount of water on the course and the layout is good. We will come back in a month or so and see if it's in better shape.

The course is good

Very good course. They are under new management and there's not much in amenities. But the golfing is good. I was not.

fun day, stay out of the rough

Enjoyed the layout, have played here several times. I believe that there are new owners, very friendly. Greens were fine, fairways some weeds, but the rough was all weeds and very high - this slowed play while looking for balls even if you had a good idea where it went in.

Come back and play again. New management is currently spraying weeds and looking good.

Great Value

Played with a local group of friends and found the course to be in very good condition. Greens were somewhat dry but rolled very well. Nice grass in the fairways. A number of challenging holes with dog legs where you are tempted to risk trying short cuts which makes for some fun play. Very reasonable rate and an overall good experience.

Good Morning Mr. Fragala,

Thank you for the excellent "4-star review"! I'm very pleased you enjoyed the conditions of the course and had a great experience! Just so you are aware, the greens are not dried out. They appear that way because we do not overseed our greens. We prefer our Champion Bermuda Ultradwarf play fast and true for ideal winter conditions, thus the reason the fairways and overseeded areas look so green! Nevertheless, please send me an email to golfsprucecreek@gmail.com for a great coupon from me to you for posting such a great review! Thank you & have a great day!

Great remodel

First time played since remodel. Greens close to perfect all new greens and beach sand bunkers all redone. Club house redone every thing has been upgraded. Value for money way up there. Greens like Ocala, county course, Stone Creek. Hard will take some time to get ball stopping quick but very fast and true to put. Greens very lush for January very impressed. Put it on your list to try.

Inexpensive, for good reason, but ok for the money

Made the reservation for $13, but didn't know it was a shotgun until the 2nd e-mail confirmation, so the system failed on that, fix it. Course condition is weak overall, with a temporary hole. However, the beer was cheap and you got a free hot dog! Experienced players will be disappointed if they care about course condition. Hope they can get the course back this summer, it's not a bad layout at all.

New Greens, New Management, New Experience. No Shot Gun starts.

No free Hot Dogs, but grill is open, and yes we still have beer.

handy location

Well located and a fun course to play. Some of the Greens are not in the best of the shape. Played here in past years, and I have to say the course has slipped a bit during that time.

Condirltion OK, price amazing. Very friendly staff.

FAirways were in poor condition, greens Ok( similar to the average Villages course), price was amazing at $24 each. Much better than the 60 to 70 we're paying at Villages. Staff very nice. I really would love to play this when in great condition, cause a great design.

Good Course- Poor Scheduling

Started on back nine with the first T-time and ran into other golfers at #15, waited on each shot the rest of the round and had to wait 35 minutes at the turn. Course had shotguns and regular T-times simultaneously. Play this course regularly and scheduling is an issue most of the time.
