Nice set up. Holes are challenging but not ridiculous. Greens were excellent for this time of year, very hot in FL. Fairways are sparse in spots, could use more seeding in spring and fall.

Friendly people working there, very cooperative want you to have a good golf experience.

We played this course today and were all totally disappointed with the whole experience.

Yes there has been a lot of rain in the area recently, and the course was wet, however the state of the course was down to many weeks and months of neglet.

The only positive thing to say is about the bunkers. Everything else was simply poor.

From the driving range(if it can be called that), which was just mud and weeds to the tee boxes, fairways and greens.

The ‘lunch’ offer was a joke. A hotdog. One of our group asked if there was a vegetarian offer and simply got a shrug of the shoulders.

A total poor experience, we as a group of 6 players will not be returning.

I apologize that Willowbrook did not live up to your expectations for your round of golf. We have had over a week straight of rain which does offer many challenges to the maintenance of the golf course. This review does come as a surprise to me as most of our feedback over the last few months from guests has been very positive. We are always striving to improve the course conditions and guest experience, we will be looking into offering an alternative lunch to the hot dog, chips and a soda to accommodate people with dietary restrictions. We appreciate your feedback.

First time played here, must say that the course looked to me a bit rundown and needed maintenance

Also was surprised that the greens were punched and this was not mentioned on Golfnow, so this was very dissapointed and took away lot of the round,

All in all dissapointed

Very nice course. 40 minutes from Clermont but, worth the ride. The tee boxes were nice, fairways green and plush, greens a little fast bc the put sand down, otherwise and surprise. Driving up it reminded us of a course we played in New Jersey - walk through the front door and quite surprised. Will go back again.

Played Willowbrook early afternoon and the course was in good condition. Play was a little slow with players in front playing from tees they weren’t really capable of playing from. Greens were quite small which meant most holes were a challenge to par.

But overall for $25 including the cart it was very good value and would definitely play there again.

I’ve played Willowbrook 3 times and will continue to come back. At $35 it is the best value in the area, and the course conditions are excellent. From tee box to green, this course is well maintained. The course has an extremely friendly and helpful staff, and the pace of play for all three rounds was at about 4 hours.

This is a Municipal course owned by Winter Haven. The town is doing a great job on this course. I highly recommend

Tee boxes in terrible stare, long grass and uneven, fairways like semi rough, did not look like they had ever been cut! All greens very small and slow, all greens in elevated position with very long wet grass to surrounds. Pace of play slow, 4.5 hours. Will not play again.

Greens are small and slow. Over watered night before so ground around greens was soft and wet. OK to play as a starter round if the price is fair.

The course was green but they had watered it so much that it was just mud. The grass hadn't been cut for a number of day's, the pin's hadn't been moved for what looked like a week.

It was our second time in a week. We thought they would cut the collars and approaches the second time around but no luck. We played first time at 11am and then at 10am. No workers on the course. No Marshall to be seen. Both times late getting started. Save your money or spend it more wisely somewhere else
