Fantastic Course

This is the nicest course I’ve ever played, and that’s saying a lot. It’s been raining almost every day here, but there were only 6 holes that were “cart path only”. Fastest greens I’ve ever seen. The staff was incredible from the time I arrived. In fact, my friends tire went flat in the parking lot (we didn’t know this until the end of the round). When we finished, we learned that the staff had changed his tire for him! We didn’t ask for this service, they just did it! It’s an expensive course during peak season, but during the off season, the price goes down significantly. Take the time and spend a little extra to play this course. You won’t regret it.

Great Experience

Great course and experience. Shot over my handicap, but for the first time playing here, its to be expected. Staff was great. Great check-in and post round experience. The unexpected ice towel at the end was PERFECT!! Staff was very friendly and comforting. Would've liked more bottle water on back 9. I did not see a cooler. My only non-excellent review was in course layout. I said this because many holes (excluding water hazard) were not forgiving to wayward drives. Very lush tall sea grass and palm bushes.

Trust this review

I am a once a week golfer that shoots low 80’s. My idea of a good course is good character holes with good conditions. I was in Orlando with two golf buddies for a semi golf/ business trip. We played Grand cypress, Celebration, and Waldorf. Waldorf by far was the worst of the three. The staff was very friendly and the amenities were great. They have a nice grass driving range but the good ends there. The course itself was in unplayable conditions. It was so wet that all tee shots plugged so bad that it took a few minutes to find the ball even in the fairways. When walking in the fairway, it is so wet that water actually get up to your socks in some spots. Hitting any sort of chip shots were near impossible because of the lack of drainage. I thought maybe the terrible conditions were due to recents rains but we played Grand Cypress the next day and it was near perfect. Also we were joined by a single who was staying the hotel and played the course two days prior. The single said the course was in this near unplayable condition both times he played. Also be ready to play cart path only golf which is really annoying in the heat. The starter advised that the course mostly plays as cart path only due to lack of drainage. As for the layout, it was fair but nothing special. This was complete waste of a round and would not play this course again.

Cart path only, don’ t play

Golf course is fantastic but should check beforehand if it is cart path only. If it is, don’ t play it. The fairways are too wet to be played from. You get splashed all over, the ball does not run or bounce and gets pluged. If it is dry, it must be a great golf course.

One of the best in Orlando

For the time of year, the course was in great shape. The staff are really helpful, the layout is great and the greens, despite the recent work on them, were playing very true. All in all this course continues to be one of our favourites in the area.

Excellent Course

Had a great round. One of my best (77). The course is layed out very well to the eye. Their are big shots to make and shots to be considered as safe (water that comes into play between holes on each sides). I liked that the back tees are lifted so see the slopes of the fairways. A little wet on the front due to rain, so no roll. The back dried a little and softened them for better placement. Some greens looked as though they had just been seeded (back 9) so the pace of speeds and lines were slightly tricky. Overall workable. Great course! Hospitality was top notch John Private Golf Conditioning Specialist

Great Course

Course was in great shape , staff was professional and courteous. Made sure tee times were kept . Extremely slow group in front of us slowed pace to a crawl but other than that great experience.

Beautiful but Challenging - Excellent Conditions

My first time playing the course, I loved the layout and the course was in excellent shape. It is aesthetically beautiful and you see tons of wildlife. We unfortunately had to use Cart Path Only due to extreme amounts of rain for several days prior to our round. The course was certainly wet, but that's not managements fault. It was actually only a problem in the fairway - almost no roll out, and if you hit one fat, it wasn't going anywhere. The rough was lush but not too tough. The second cut of rough around the greens was extremely thick and hard to judge how the ball would come out on your chip shots - you had better hit the green on your approach! The greens had been punched about 10 days earlier but still rolled pretty quickly, you just get your typical bounce or slight change of direction when hitting a bump - that's just the price we pay in Florida to have great golf courses. The sand was perfect, even when wet. Everything was manicured to perfection. It is not a terrible difficult course off the tee, its mostly a second shot course with lots of elevated greens and plenty of penalty around the greens for a miss. I would have hit more 3-woods and irons off the tee, but stuck with the driver most of the day because its was so wet and playing long. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who's handicap is under 20. I will definitely play it again when thing dry out! My only suggestion would be to drop the price just a tad when it's cart path only and the greens are punched.
