Course is in good shape

Played in exactly 4 hours and 4 minutes...in a 4some playing 3 different tees. Rangers are active and help keep play moving.

Course is in good shape. The rye overseed produced solid fairway lies and consist lies around the green. The greens are good but they mark up with spike marks really easily. Not the course's fault, but most putts requires multiple tap downs of spike marks. People just don't know how to walk these days.

Course is managed well and the staff are friendly.

Let er rip!

Fun wide open layout with an unusual amount of elevation change for a Florida course. Greens were in great condition, fairways were a little dry, really nothing to complain about here. Would definitely play again.

Everything was okay

The course was in good condition. I personally think the green fee is a bit expensive. Everything else was okay.

Course conditions

The course was okay, but not for the price.
Greens and tees were good, but fairway and rough were thin or none existent. Had to putt from 30 yds off green a couple of times as the fairway was way too thin. Course should have been in the $60-$70 range. Played Disneys Lake Buena Vista the day before for like $20 more.
I realize this is Florida and the snowbirds are down at this time. But prices seem to be getting carried away. Played a lot of nice courses throughout the country and it seems golf is on its way back, But that also means the prices are only going to vlumb

Great course, pace of play was a tad slow after 2 rain days prior. Great hotdog at the turn. Not a ton of trouble on course and greens were in great shape

Lovely vacation golf course. Pace of play has to be addressed.

Lovely course very well maintained. Very little water but a great variation in holes with some elevation on certain holes. Greens very good and very tricky. Only drawback was pace of play. Just over 5 hours. Staff were all very friendly except for the (second) guy giving out the carts who was downright rude. Have played 15 courses in the area this year and this was the first time I encountered anything like his behaviour. That said, the greeting, friendliness and assistance given by the young man on arrival was over and beyond the call of duty so things evened themselves out I suppose. Definitely worth a trip, hope they monitor the pace of play better. They have terminals on each buggy to monitor it but nobody comes along to fix things.

Great course

Very open course with elevated tee boxes. Nice course to get the winter rust off. Great pace of play when we played. It was calling for rain, so the course wasn’t very busy.

A bit over priced but for the area it’s decent. Nice layout. Great greens and the course was pretty wide open. Some nice elevated tee boxes.

good course will play again

A quite forgiving course. Fun to play especially for high handicaps. Greens rolled true with some quite challenging pin placements.
Tee boxes and fairways were reasonable. Rough was still pretty brown

A little pricey

I always play one or two rounds here as I like this course, I simply found the price a tad high for the quality as I was able to play this course usually for half of what I paid and i do not think there is value at $99. That said prices were up everywhere and soon golf will be priced out of range as a sport. Conditions were good and greens were consistent, a bit slow, but consistent.
