Great course

Great course and layout. Greens 10 and 11 need work but other than that it's a must play.

Relatively wide landing areas off the tee for Florida courses. Fun, fair layout and in good condition consider the recent rain.

Well worth it

The pace of play was a death march, but that had more to do with the players I was paired up with. The group ahead of us was no better and had a three hole gap between them and the next group. I think this was more luck of the draw than something systemic. Course was in great shape and the new greens on 10-12 were fantastic. Green speed was lethargic. They said it was 8.5 but felt slower. Fairways were pristine and the bunkers were full of sand, thought it was packed pretty tight due to previous day’s rain. Well worth the price, though when season is in full bloom and season prices go into effect, is probably reconsider.

Greens aerated.

How can we know BEFORE we book a round that the course has been aerated greens???? It was the main reason for the lower rating

Course CLOSED due to TROPICAL STORM

We were supposed to Play Friday 10-2-2020. A Tropical Storm came through for the weekend and the Course WAS CLOSED. We spoke with the Pro Shop to CANCEL our reservation and have tried several times to get a REFUND from you, or even email you OR SPEAK WITH A REAL PERSON!
This happened to us last year and we will NEVER use GOLF NOW again...

Disappointed

We found the greens to be in terrible shape, many were under repair. Additionally, the fairways were not marked as to where to take the cart off the course & many times had the cart turned off because we were considered too close to the green, sometimes even 75 yards out.

Best so far!

This is a beautiful course set in a very attractive and well maintained golf community. The fairways are long and wide, challenging enough with bunkers and water and in prime condition. Not a weed or bare spot in sight! Yes, 3 or4 greens were under repair, but they were still rolling and the rest of them were good tests and In great shape.
Pace of okay was amazing: we were a threesome and saw no one ahead or behind us for the first 9 holes. Back 9 had a foursome ahead of us, but we hardly waited at all,, they were quick and courteous.
This is a really special course, great carts with GPS, optimal conditions and fun greens. Catch it if you can!

Not sure if the player drank too much, but course is in horrible condition. Last week had a meeting with residents, where more than 400 people showed to discuss condition and if it should be shut down.
Community is great, but course should be closed for a few weeks.

Always enjoyed playing this course over the last 5 years. This time the greens were absolutely terrible. They lost them December-January. Golf now participants beware!

Nice track

Very nice golf course overall. Greens on 10, 11 and 12 were not in very good condition for some reason. Clearly under repair. Trying to bring those greens up to the quality rest of the greens and course.

looks nice, but less filling!

Nice layout, but conditions were terrible. 3 greens your putting in sand and the rest of the greens is like putting on Velcro they are so slow. Practice range needs a lot of work and there is no straight putt on the practice green. Course needs a lot of work!!

Great Experience

One of our favorite - while some of the greens were being renovated., course conditions, overall, were great. Pace of play was at 4 hours, which we enjoy, and staff was very friendly.

Ridiculous

Upon arrival, we were told that greens 10, 11 and 12 were under maintenance. Therefore, we recieved a discount at $148.00! However, ALL 18 greens were unplayable.
I have played this course many times, always happy with the conditions. I would advise everyone to avoid this course for the near future. #pathetic
