I have booked this course many times on a golf now hot deal. The deal is always in the 40-45 dollar range and an awesome value. However I booked this time at the full hot deal price of 45 dollars and got to the course to finds the greens had recently been aerated with no top dressing the putting was impossible ball bouncing all over the green. There was no aeration warning when I booked and the price did not reflect this condition. As I said before this was full hot deal price I expected the course as I have played it before in top condition. I blame golf now more than the course because obviously the course has to take care of their greens but I should have known what to expect and if I had known for that price I would have pick another course.

Very interesting course not a normal flat Florida course. Need good posotioning on each hole. The 226 yard par three to an elevated green is a bit much, just saying. Great staff. Highly recommend this course. One of the best in the area.

Awesome course. Fantastic undulating greens. The course is fair and rewarding. I was fortunate in that I was playing with someone who plays there all the time. That really helped. Great layout. Not your typical FL. Course. Can’t wait to go back.

A really great course, wide fairways in the main so one can have a real swing at the driver. Fairways hard but plenty of grass. The greens were quoted as running at 11 and I can believe it, absolutely rocket fast but true. Anything downhill needed great care. Just one silly par three on the back nine which doesn't need the bunker in front, it's difficult enough without that.

This course was amazing. Not your typical flat Florida golf course. Every single hole was different and interesting. Course was in immaculate condition. I will absolutely play here again. When the neighborhood is finished the course will go completely private. Play it while you can.

This course is always, always, always in super shape. If you play the correct T's for your handicap, you can score, assuming you don't get your approach shot above the pin too often. If you do, you will pay with a 3 putt nearly every time. From 6400 yards, it will give a sub 10 handicap all they can handle. From the tips, forget about it, unless you're a very low single digit, and then it will be a strong test. Do yourself a favor, and check your ego at the pro shop. Play within your abilities (chose the right T's), and you'll certainly end the round with a big smile, whether you play well, or not. I can't say enough good things about this course. I'd give it 6 stars, if I could!!

Have played this course over 30 times and it is a great layout. Green are quite large with a lot of undulation. Sand traps are superb, staff is terrific and this course will probably be private in a few years.
