All greens were small and elevated making most shots into the greens all carry to small targets. Fairways were green and nice to play on but pace of play was slow. Expected more considering the course was recommended.
VERY SLOW AND LESS THAN AVERAGE FAIRWAYS.
We had a very, very slow round 5 hours. Slow players ahead of us and not a ranger on course to address the issue. Greens were okay however fairways and course condition was less than average. Would not come back for sure.
This is more like a pasture no defined fairways.
Great day at the course today. Right from the start, Jessie, the starter, gave a great overview of the course and put me with a regular player at the course, Pete. Pete explained each hole for me and was an absolute pleasure to golf with. The 17th hole was definitely my favourite. Great value and people at this course. Small greens which rolled great and I had to use all the clubs in my bag. Will definitely go back again.
A pleasant suprise
It was just by lick that we booked our tee time at Willowbrook, not knowing much about the course, but, it turned out to be one of the best courses we played with in the Orlando area.
The greens are outstanding and the overall condition of the company was excellent. It wil be easier to play next time, and there will be a next time, as the knowledge of the hazards will be helpful. Great course great value.
Really nice course
This was a very good cours in both condition and layout. It was also very good value for cost. Beer cart on weekends or hot days or would be an advantage but overall was very happy with the facility.
This was our first time at this course. It was a windy day but the course itself is excellent and challenging. Fairways were good and a little wet from all the rain, greens were in great shape although running fast. Some suggestions were for vertical physical markers for yardage increments instead of painted or in the ground, and ball wash stations at the tees instead of in between tees. We understand new managers and that they have been improving greatly, but cart paths are going to need some immediate repair. All in All, this was a great course and we will be back and will recommend to friends and neighbours.
I have been playing this course for the last several years during our stay in Florida and I was pleasantly surprised of the course improvement over the last few years. This course offer great value for your money and the degree of difficulty is good for the average golfer.
Great course for your money
I have played this course three times since being in Florida. The course is in great shape. The pace of play was good as it was very busy (4 hours 15 minutes). The starter was very courteous.
Good for the money
I only paid $24 for 18 and a cart. I’m from NY, so it was great to get out there in the month of February. The course conditions were pretty good. There were a couple of soft spots on the course (back 9). I hit one shot on the back and It plugged right in front of the green. Other than that, I have no complaints. At the beginning the pace of play was a little slow, but after hole 8 or 9 the pace picked up a lot.
Pace of play
Pace of play will always be a factor at any golf course. It gets tiring and very negative when you wait every hole for a million reasons. Not sure if we'll golf there again. Staff was very friendly and especially the starter was very professional and friendly.
Plays Long for short hitters
Old fashioned flattish Florida course made scenic and challenging with beautiful old trees. Slow overseeded greens and no roll on overseeded fairways. Good condition with wet areas. Welcoming staff. Starter explained about water hazard locations, even gave us a yardage book.
The course is moderately difficult
Course was in good shape. The tee boxes and fairways had plenty of grass and the greens rolled reasonably well. The greens are very small so there is a premium on accuracy. Fairways were good, although they were a little soggy even though we hadn't had any recent rain. As a result, there was little roll on tee shots or approaches.
