A lot has changed

We used to play this course regularly before covid. It was in such poor condition we almost left after the 2nd hole. There is little to no grass on the fairways, weeds everywhere, pits / sand and weeds on the greens. Just terrible and there were no groomed traps. They will have to do a lot to make us come back here again no matter how inexpensive it is. Such a disappointment and a shame.

No Fairway grass

This use to be a beautiful golf course which I played many times over the years. Today made my stomach turn. This can not be called a golf course. There is NO GRASS on any of the fairways. The greens were green but that's it. I can not put into words how awful this course really is. NO warnings and no information about the condition from staff.

Hopeing for improvement

I played there June 1st,I was very excited about being in the area and a chance to play there again.the last time I played there the course was in ok condition ,this time the fairways were dead,the greens were hard to putt on,there were potholes all over the place,just not a very enjoyable round of golf,I love the layout,the elevation changes will take your breath away,hopefully with some rain the course will come back to life.

Neglected golf course.

Last time I played Sanctuary Ridge about 2 years ago and the course was in excellent condition. It was very sad to see and play the course in it's current condition.
The fairways, bunkers, tee boxes, etc. were in horrible shape. It looked like nobody took care of the course in years!! Very sad because it is a nice, challenging layout.
It is not worth playing at all at any price in it's current condition. Hope that someday the course is brought back to life. Will not play it again until that happens.

The location had great potential...

With some grass this course could be a lot of fun. The layout has a lot of elevated tee shots, scenic views, stout hills to climb. Things that are not common in Florida. I went out as a single at 9:30 am on a Sunday morning (which should have told me something). I played through 3 groups at different points...no one accepted my offer to join up, but they were all nice and let me keep going, Finished in under 3 hours. Unfortunately, even in the middle of the fairway, grass isn't common, and most of the greens are the same. I actually scored pretty well (shot a 79 from the Blue's on a 9 handicap), but I won't be back until I hear that the course is in better condition.

Gone

I played this course several years ago. Now, it’s a shame it’s even on golf now. I quit after a few holes. The entire course is dirt and weeds. It’s a shame too, but you shouldn’t play here. It’s a waste of time.

DISSAPOINTMENT!

One of THE best layouts in Central Florida BUT probably the worst condition golf course (fairways, bunkers, rough and greens) i the whole of Florida. Most fairways are sandy waste areas!
In current condition I would NOT recommend it to anyone.
Actually saw two sprinkler gushing water so maybe in a few weeks things may improve, they certainly could not get much worse.
