One best in Southwest Florida

From the moment you drive in, drop clubs, enter pro shop has an upscale feel to it. The design, condition and challenge of course in particular the very tough greens makes University Park a must play. Starter and marshal can be a bit pushy. Understand they want pace of play however players want to enjoy their day which they pay well for this track of 27 beautiful holes. $80 USD a bit steep for mid day mid week, $65 would seem an excellent value here. Will play again next time I'm in town.

Golfing Challenge

A great golfing experience with interesting challenges on the greens and sand traps—— beautiful views of each hole’s layout and GPS! I Expect to play this course often during my season stay when economical golfing rates are available.

Almost perfect

The course is always enjoyable and in good shape. As one of the nicer courses in the area, I would like to see the pace of play be better. The course has rangers, which is a great start. Move the people along. If they can’t keep up, have them skip holes. Waiting on almost every shot is not enjoyable.

Stay straight

Tight course, the average player will find trouble but keep your cool and you can still make par. It was windy which always adds to the difficulty, so pick you tees carefully.
