Played this course in Venice and overall it was in really good shape. Greens were quick and nice. Tee boxes in good shape. Some fairway patches but nice.

Played with college buddy and were paired with two older gentlemen. Pace of play was a little slow in the am.

Will definitely be back. The starter said they are shutting down to redo course over summer so I bet it will be awesome when in reopen in the fall.

We have been playing courses in the Venice/Englewood/Placida area all month and this was far and away the best maintained course. Now remember we play the less expensive courses and this one is not normally offered at this price. I had thought my game had gone all to heck but really it was playing off pure sand with an occaisional blade of grass that was the problem. My score was back to normal just playing on normal length grass. Play here if you can.

Pace of play was ridiculously slow . We waited on every shot . Some par 4s had 3 foursomes on them . When we spoke to the Player Assistance person , he said his instructions were that a 4 hour round of golf was acceptable by the ownership . We asked who from ownership gave him his guidance . He said the Golf Pro . It took us 4 hours and 22 minutes to complete our round and we teed off in the morning . This course offers cheaper rates in the early morning and the discount golfers set the pace of play . This is the second time my foursome has played this course , with the same slow play . The ownership seems to care more about money than reputation . We won't return .

The staff at this course is FAR from being friendly. They may be the most unfriendly staff I have ever come across.

The pro shop to the starter were disrespectful to everyone I witness they spoke to.

This can and did ruin a perfect weather day and my 81 felt like a 101. Bad people will make a great day bad.

Will not be back to may options in the area.

Greens and fairways were in good shape for this time of year. Rough was a little patchy which gave some unpredictable lies. Pace of play was a little slow for a late afternoon round. I was paired up with.a couple of very nice gentleman. Definitely will play this course again.
