Closing today....

I live next door and was one of the first golfers to ever play this course. And i was probably the last or nearly the last to play also. Loved this course for many years, great layout, interesting holes. It became badly rundown the past couple years, but i will miss it greatly. I hear it may comeback as Clernont national, next year, we`ll see....

Used To Be A Nice Course

Second time playing here. Both times have run into issues with other golfers and pace of play. Course is set up awesome, nice club house, but nothing is maintained well. Still a fun place for the low price.

New ownership coming soon

Hopefully this picturesque coarse will get the owner of deserves and will turn this around into a premier course. The layout is great. Good challenges, but man oh man, show the course dinner live, cut the grass, clean outa sandtrap or two. Hopefully a cart could come by as well.

Looking forward to playing again soon

The course needs help

The course is suffering. I really like the course layout, but the tee boxes, fairways, greens, and even the rough are not even close right now. Greens fees match course conditions, so you're not getting ripped off, but . . .

Poor Course Condition

1-Fairways were in such poor condition making it even hard to navigate a golf cart.
2- Ball cleaning stations without water
3- Drinking water stations empty
4- Forget looking for your ball if it travels slightly off the fairway because grass estimated to be 6 inches high and add another 1 to 2 inches of grass clippings on top of that.

This was my first time this course and most likely my last time if golf course management can't to better than this.

Worse conditions I have ever seen

This course should be paying the the golfers to play the course. It is a cow pasture. There no interest by the owners in maintaining the course it looks like a Meadow. There is absolutely no grass anywhere, nothing but clover in the fairways if you could call them that they, are not delineated at all. The greens are in horrible shape. You should not have this course on your selection as it is extremely is this extremely horrible. I felt like asking for my money back.

Terrible!!!

Absolutely horrible how they have let that course get this way. Used to really enjoy playing here, although after playing there last weekend I will NEVER be back. No grass on what should be a fairway. Bunkers are grown over with weeds, although they still left the rakes in there, and forget about the greens. My group paid for 18 holes although we threw in the towel after 9. Would never waste my money here again. Be warned.

Nice layout but poor condition

This course has a good deal of elevation changes which was enjoyable for me as most courses in Florida are pretty flat. However, there is virtually no fairway grass to speak of, the sand traps were in terrible condition and in general, there was very little care taken to keep the course in good condition.

Needs Work

First of all - I’d have to say I love the layout of this course. But on the down side - course is in really bad shape. Need grass cut back in areas, then grass needed in others. Traps are over grown. Don’t really understand why they would let course get in this bad of shape ??
Really cool layout - really terrible shape !!
