Reviews have the wrong course
I have NO idea where some of these reviews are coming from. I am a self proclaimed golf course snob and I did not have that big of a problem with this course. Now, there is the Meadows course which I have never played but did here that they closed it down because it got in such poor condition. I played in a 4 man scramble at the end of May and didn't pay for it so I cant speak on the value of the green fees but I would have been fine paying $30-$34 to play here. The course is short but can make some of the par 4's fun for big hitters that want to go for it. There IS 3-4 greens that have "issues" going on with them but the rest of the greens are truly some of the nicest in the area. There is some small elevation changes that create blind spots so knowing the course is helpful.
Overall I am looking to going back and playing my own ball to see how well i can do. By the way, this course is the sister course to Terra Vista at Skyview which is the nicest public course around right now.
Don’t play this course, The greens are like sand traps. When they set the pins there is always a ridge around the hole. Lots of public courses that are in better shape. It’s not the staffs fault, it’s the owners..... Sad....
Don't waste your time or money
We were really looking forward to playing this course. We were originally scheduled to play the Meadows but talking to the pro shop they suggested we move to the Oaks, since the greens on the Meadows are in rough shape if they are worse than the Oaks I wouldn't want to play them. Fairways were thin, no over seed this year. We spoke to marshal on the course and he agreed the bad conditions.
The golfcourse, either the Oaks or even worse the Meadow. There is hardly any grass on the fairways, the greens special at the Meadows are very bad. You should call it a green except for the color. They cover them with green sand to make it looks good, Norway you can make a good put.. It’s a real shame for such a nice place. The staff at the counter is very friendly. The Tiki bar is okay except for the prices you pay for food.
Charge single rider for cart
Our group was a threesome and the pro(no lets not call it that) shop charged us $8 each for a separate cart. ($24 total. ).Nowhere else charges a single rider for a cart. The greens were sanded and were not consistent, some fast and some slow. Won't play here again due to the cart policy!!
One of the best course in the area.
Challenging course. Trust your GPS! Might look closer or further away but it’s not!!! Lol
Should have been warned
This course is charging the same as the best groomed courses in Central Florida and the greens have gouges, no grass, and in total disrepair. I play courses in Ocala that are in 5 star shape for 10 bucks less all the time. I gave the Meadows a chance and wont return.
Good course but slow pace
Nice course but slow on the pace of play. Every wed is the busiest day of the week! Don't go then. Staff stuck up, but I was there to golf. Nice layout, great greens and fairways
I used to love this course
The meadows used to be one of my favorite courses, the past 4 times I have went I have been stuck behind people that could barely walk let alone swing a club and asking them to let you pass is like pulling teeth, they get very mean and nasty!! I now would rather play the oaks but since that is soon going to be under construction I think I'll just play at other courses.
rare to play on some GREEN..
This is the nicest course ,that we ( 3 adults and 2 grandsons..played 3 and 2 the whole round)played.
some holes together, without a compliant, from anyone. We, enjoyed this course very much..
KIds, are still talking about playing it again, next year!!!
Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club - Meadows Course
12:35 tee time w/ wife for $21.20/ea thru Golfnow. Typical Florida course in subdivision setting. Short course, only 5900 yards from tips. Purchase snacks & drinks @ clubhouse before teeing off on #1 because does not return to clubhouse after 9 but there are real bathrooms on course. Only 2 holes w/ water in play, #9 & #18, both Par 3's. Couple of holes w/ tight tee shot landing areas. Tee boxes in decent shape, fairways thin, roughs cut low and sparse in areas. Medium sized elevated greens rolling true & medium fast paced. Battery powered carts w/ windshield & rain cover in back. Fun & fair track. Will play again.
Very helpful thanks.
The course has a little bit of everything
We really enjoyed the course, it was in good "winter condition", although the greens could use some work. But still challenging and enjoyable. We look forward to playing it again.
So-so course, terrible greens
The Oaks course at Citrus Hills has a few interesting holes, but a lot of blah parallel back-and-forth The main problem, however, is the greens, which were really awful. Thin to the point of being bare and bumpy. Barely playable. Won't be back til I hear they've improved.
We enjoyed playing this course except for the condition of the greens. They were very spotty with some grass and mostly no grass which made putts bumpy and irregular and really made a "good" round tough to complete since the putts were very difficult to read. If the greens were in better condition this would be a much better course.
Enjoyed playing the course. Good layout. Fairways were plenty wide. Greens were a little slow, but after you got used to them, they were OK.
There are few "hard" holes on this course, and the layout is pretty good. There are several tight fairways. But, there are several negatives that stand out. First the greens are terrible, with only 2 -3 in good shape - bald spots outnumber grassy spots, some are cut some aren't. Most fairways are in poor shape as well. Small things bugged me like NO rakes in any sand trap, no sand on the carts to fill in divots, only 2 ball washing stations on the course on #9 & #18, no starter, and no ranger to monitor pace of play. Other than that is was just OK.
Trees & Sand
Enjoyed the course layout. Par 3"s are not easy. Oak trees and sand traps provided enough danger to make for challenging play. Will return.
