Best course layout in Orlando area

We have played this course several times in the past few years. The layout of this course is excellent. However, the water system is not working at all. Absolutely no grass left anywhere. Course is still open but no money is going for maintenance. Course for sale for past 3 years. New possible owners will have to replace and/or overhaul water system which will be a huge expense. Greens are painted green with a lot of unwanted weeds and grass varieties that do not allow ball to roll smoothly. This course used to be in good condition but management has simply let it go. We were very disappointed because I can remember what it used to be - my favorite when we visited from Illinois .Would not recommend this course to any golfer until it is renovated.

Could be great

This course has the best vistas of any course in Florida. Views or just fabulous. As for the course conditions terrible. Greens are being watered but the fairways are bone dry. To be fair to yourself a club length of movement on the fairway may still not get you a lie with any grass. Please someone buy this course and get it in shape.

Great course layout

This is a great layout for golf course. The only issues are course needs a little TLC. Fairways are dry and Greens are spotty. Could pull some weeds out of traps too. But don’t get me wrong. This is a really fun course to play - absolutely love layout. Just needs a little love.

Could be a GEM!

What do I say? Warm welcome when we got there. Courteous staff! Starter gave description of a few holes with a smile. Loved the layout! The course need some TLC. Hard as a rock, needs water and grass. You have to shoot darts to hold the greens. Fun course if you can control the speed.

Scenic Layout-Terrible Conditions

We enjoyed our round today at Sanctuary Ridge. The layout is interesting and challenging. Since it’s in hilly Clermont, the vistas are spectacular. Unfortunately, the course conditions are not good. There is little grass in the fairways, and the greens are very inconsistent.
I’ll probably play it again because I so enjoy the layout. Hopefully it will be in better condition next time.

The course needs work.

Fairways are very dry and the bunkers are neglected and growing over. Very good bar and restaurant, very friendly staff.

Really fun great course!

Played here for the first time today, read some reviews so really didn’t know what to expect. We had a great time loved the layout and elevation. The staff was super friendly and helpful to explain the holes to us before we played.

They advised they seeded a couple weeks back and it didn’t take so the fairways were a little out of shape which they were but not enough to take away from us enjoying the round. The greens were in pretty good shape which was nice. Will definitely be playing here again plus a free beer at the end was awesome! Thanks for a great day!

Use to be a fun course

The course has really gone down hill from last year. There is NO grass on the fairways and the greens wouldn't be if they weren't painted. The course has a great layout but very poor conditions.

Has beautiful views and much potential

I think this course could be a destination in central Florida. It’s to bad it is so run down. The carts are worn out and lots of areas need attention. It’s a shame that a beautiful tract like this is in the condition it is!

Terrible fairways!

I’ve played here multiple times and every time I play they say they are working on maintenance of the course. Well it still hasn’t been worked on. Fairways are more like rough and the rough is just a ball eater. If you hit anything other than the middle of the fairway you’ve lost your ball. Greens are are still bad and hole 10 had a home owner yelling and cursing us out for no apparent reason. Only positive is the free beer you get with the tee time.

Quirky and Fun

Course designer took the terrain options to the fullest. Target golf for sure. Greens in good shape, rest of the course a little lacking right now. Could be winter, or some redesign. Front desk said to take balls out of traps (which are plentiful) because they are working on them. Lots of fun, but not your typical Florida course.

The views and layout are nice but the course, as it currently plays is hardly excellent. The dead or dormant grass makes shots on many of not all holes difficult/unplayable. This course in great condition would be a great spot but we played it today (1/17) and it is definitely not a must play right now. Staff was awesome and enjoyed the elevations but conditions are rough right now.
