Want a refund

Poor excuse for a GolfNow course offering. It is barely a par 3 course, would have been wised playing a miniputt course somewhere! Most holes were only 60 yds into a small green.

Miniput with real grass.

I thought for the money this executive course would be better value than the driving range but other than playing half wedges it was not worth the time.

Don't play here if you want a challenge...

I was extremely disappointed as the website did not say that this was a executive 9 hole with no holes longer than 99 yards. I was looking forward to a decent 9 holes on vacation and what I found was a course that was set up for an introduction or first round of golf ever. It wasn't even a part of the actual golf course. It's located by the pools of the resort and had to get bused out to it. Felt like I was trespassing at the resort and that the GC didn't even know I was there. On the plus side if you want to practice your short game, I know a place that you can sneak on for free and not see a soul. Wink Wink...

Great for Beginners

Played with 2 beginners and it was a great course to introduce them to the game - no pressure from experienced golfers trying to play through and no restriction on playing the course a number of times. Extremely friendly staff - almost had the course to ourselves.

Course is Beautiful

The course is Beautiful. However, for the price, the greens should be kept in much better shape. I realize this is a resort, but it doesn't mean that those who can't afford the championship courses can't be given nice greens to go with such a beautiful course.

Know In Advance

Short little course. Only need 9 iron, pitching wedge, putter. Well advertised that just a place for kids and practice your short game so we had no complaint. We played 3 times in 2 hours as it is unlimited play. Great to practice your short game and bunker exit. Not that hot for putting practice as greens poor.

Resort 9 hole executive

I was extremely disappointed as the website did not say that this was a executive 9 hole with no holes longer than 99 yards. Had to rent clubs that came with two wedges and a putter. Was looking forward to a decent 9 holes on vacation and what I found was a course that was set up for an introduction or first round of golf. It wasn't even apart of the actual golf course. It's located by the pools of the resort and had to get bused out to it. Felt like I was trespassing at te resort and that the GC didn't even know I was there. On the plus side if you want to practise your short game, I know a place that you can sneak on for free and not see a soul.

Nice way to work on short game

We arrived early for our round and were allowed to play early. There was only one other group. The deal said the round included clubs and balls, but no one at the pro shop was aware of the terms, so we ended up having to buy our own balls. The course itself is in rough condition, especially the greens, but my wife is a beginner, and this was relaxed way for her to work on her swing without pressure from other groups or a course ranger. Even though it's short, it's a little tough to find your way around it.

Warm up

We used this course as a warm-up. It's great if you're working on your short game – nothing longer than 90 yards. For the money, I would use this as a warm-up every time I come down to Florida.
