Not a good course

This course is not in good shape. Tee boxes are terrible and not well marked with the appropriate tee markers. Fairways are marginal, greens the same. Pace of play was slow, a 5 hour round! Will not play again and will advise others also.

2 words: Never Again

Showed up on a Thursday morning for a 7:15 am tee time.

At 6:45 am a bag boy pulled up to my car to take my bag. I told him I was good as I didn’t have cash and didn’t mind walking 1 minute up to the shop. He insisted and grabbed my clubs without asking. When we got to the shop he demanded I go inside to the ATM and get him a tip. When I came back out he was asking me where his tip was. I went in and got him $ but it was extremely rude & over the top when I said I was good.

The Tee sheet online showed the course as wide open which is why we chose it. We pulled up to the tee box and there were 12+ carts lined up to go out. Not a ranger or starter in sight, pretty much a mayhem free for all.

We said screw it and went off on the back 9, played it in 1.5 hours. When we went to turn onto the front 9, the lady in the snack shack asked why we had gone off the back first rudely. I said because we had booked a 7:15 tee time, showed up at our time and there were 15 carts waiting. I asked her where the starter and ranger was?

We made the turn and of course we were behind a 5-some that were sharing clubs and hacking all day. 3.5 hour front 9.

The only plus about this course was the greens were decent. Then again they are everywhere as we are in prime time season. The layout isn’t very fun either. Management is horrible. Pretty pathetic what they charge here and I will never be back.

Home course

Bardmoor has become our "home course", due to both proximity to where we live and also how nice it is. Front 9 is easier than the back, at least to me. Need to know where to lay up on the Par 5's if you need to as there are ponds all around. Bryan does a great job behind the desk and the course is always in good shape.

Clearly was a gem, but those days are long in the past.

The Good - the greens are quite solid, good coverage, and roll true.

The rest is just bad.

PACE was very poor, 5 hours 20 minutes and no ranger in sight.

While the greens are good, the tee boxes are only ok, fairways are more like rough and have an incredible amount of irrigation issues coming through as completely wet, many if not all the bunkers have no clear demarcation to indicate where they start and stop.

To be clear, the golf course superintendent and their staff are likely doing all they can, the issues with the property are clearly tied to a lack of long term repair and refresh.

This is a $15 - $20 golf course and they need to provide a 6 pack for every 15 minutes over 4.5 hours especially when they don't even put a ranger out there!

BARDMOOR GOLF COURSE REVIEW

2 Hours before my booked tee time the sky steadily brought down heavy rain and continued raining for approximately 2 additional hours after what would have been my tee timer. I called Bardmoor an hour before my booked tee time to cancel, and they refused to acknowledge the vast amount of rain and lightning associated with this storm, stating the OWNER says they never close the course no matter what, so you can golf using cart path only rules. What a joke, the rain was so bad at times there was no visibility looking outside and you'd be putting yourself in harms way. Just thought I'd share my experience with you.

Thank You,
Kevin

Your place for 5 hour rounds!

At 7:30 on a Sunday morning the starter put out a 5-some of regulars that brought play to a halt. After 9 holes they were 2 holes behind, and a 2-some actually jumped in the gap between groups. Play is glacially slow and nowhere near the money they want to charge.

Bad shape

Course is in bad shape.. The pics on Tee off make it look good but the course is in desperate need of fixing. Fairways were cut too short. Muddy fairways with lots of dead spots and dead grass. Green were bad not the quality I expected for a Florida coast course. I don't think it was worth the $17 dollars I paid. Not worth playing.

The greens are wonderful. True. Course layout is awesome. The drainage is great but there are several small areas of damaged fairway due to heavy rains.
