Good Value

This is a good place to play a practice round mid-week when the rates are low. I would not recommend playing on the weekend with the weekend rates. Greens are old school Bermuda and very slow. If they rolled the greens once a week it would improve the experience.

A good place to practice.

Greens are terribly slow. This place needs some serious TLC. Rough needs to be mowed, fairways are OK. There are zero perks at this course. Better bring your own drinks because there is no access to anything.

Quiet course

The front nine is a par 37 with three par 5s.

Stay left on #2. The par 3 #3 involves a carry over a creek that feeds into a pond that only factors in if you hit a tee shot is that wayward to the right. Near where the creek that feeds into the pond is a somewhat tall tree which makes a low entry into the green even more narrow.

#6 is a dogleg right on which placement of the tee shot (over a creek) is vital as the entry to the green (over a creek) is a little narrow.

On #9, avoid a wayward drive to the left because the trees make an approach over either the trees or the large pond to the green virtually impossible.

For short hitters, the tee shot on #17 can be difficult because of a potential carry over water and because of a initially narrow fairway bordered by water to the left and the woods to the right.

Wide Open Spaces!!!

I found the course to be fun and enjoyable. Not rushed or hurried in anyway. Lots of open ground so beginning golfers like me aren't losing a lot of balls and most stay playable. I had a blast and look forward to returning!

Good value for the money

For a municipal course, Gainesville is great. It is a great value for the money. The greens and tee boxes are fairly well kept with little to no browning. It is mid July and the fairways are mostly green and mowed as well. The sand traps are not kept, and the cart paths need work, but for the value this is a fine course.

Hot day for golf

This course is a good practice course. The greens have improved this season. The staff is very friendly and the pace of play is good. A good course to play to just get out and practice for a while.

Don’t waste your time

This is like playing in a cow pasture. The greens suck, the fairways suck, too he staff sucks. I am normally a very East going guy but why would anyone play here. This is not a golf course. It’s a pasture with some greens placed in random locations. If it was free it would cost too much.
