Costly for a missing hole

Just blown away by the cost of 18, as a resident- and not even told anything about the 9th hole being ripped up- short tee box on 8 and a temporary flag in the middle of the 9th fairway. Don’t see myself playing her again anytime soon- kinda feel like I was ripped off.

Dubsdread for first time

Nice city course, pace of play excellent considering large number of players on course. Greens in good shape, fairways could use a bit of thickening but course gets a lot of play. GPS on carts a good feature.

Much Better This Time

I always enjoy playing this course. Love the layout and it challenges all my weaknesses.

I played this this course 5 weeks ago and the greens and course was was a mess.

The general playing conditions on Sunday was much better. The greens were rolling out nice but WAY TOO slow.

No reason that I have use 25% more effort to roll the ball toward the cup. I hope this is corrected soon.

Always enjoy playing here! It’s a good test of all facets of your game.

Feels like up north

This is a very unique local option. Oldest public course in Orlando. Classic 'northern' design with tighter holes and more mature trees. Very well maintained. Love it.

Short and Tricky

What a humbling round. I mistakenly thought a 6153 yard from the tips course would suit me, but it kicked my butt. I'm a 14 hdcp, so I can be great and terrible at the same time. Course is narrow, especially from the black tees. A bit muddy in some spots, understandable given the weather. Back nine a little more open, and the greens were in better shape. No flat greens, lots of slope. Tough test.

Brought friend

Took friend to show off course, the greens were recently punched and I never noticed the warning or alert on golf now. It's hard for someone to like the course in that condition, otherwise it was nice.

Greens are really bad

I’ve been playing this course for years and today the greens were aerated and heavenly sanded. Playing golf today on this great course was no fun. Even the bunkers couldn’t be played because the rakes were removed intentionally.

Also the overall the course was not in as good as it could be or has been in the past. Maybe it’s going through a mini restoration and prepping for a tournament. Let’s hope so.

The value for this great course is worth checking it out and it’s rich history of excellence and tough greens to putt are or have been legendary

Let’s hope this great course is just going through some sort of restoration.

Great classic track

The course was just aerated so the conditions were not ideal. That being said I knew that going in and still had a good time. The course will call challenge you and the greens make up for any loss of length. I’m coming back this winter and this old gem will be on the top of my list to play again

Good Fun, Safe and Respected

The course was in great shape. We enjoyed the layout and course condition. Greens ran pretty true. Although I did not have a good round, playing on a well maintained course made the difference. As for the staff and their approach to Covid-19 concerns, they were prepared to ensure they were respecting everyone’s’s space. The Tap Room, on site restaurant, also practiced safety were all staff members wore a mask. I think it important to point out how thoughtful and easy they ensured their customers felt safe and respected. We’ll be coming back. Thank you.

Not Bad

Unique tight course with a few holes on the back where you can let out the driver. A lot of rain the previous night so path only and wet conditions but that is no fault of the course. Really friendly staff from pro shop, starter and bev cart. A good course to practice accuracy and course management.
