Wonderful conditions

First time playing holes 1-18 at University Park. FL golf conditions can be difficult to maintain in Sept, but greens had been punched nearly a month before. Putting was fairly fast and very consistent. Entire course was extremely well groomed. Each hole was unique. Many woods/jungle lined holes. Recommend that you keep the ball in play. Ranger was very active at improving course pace. If you get the chance to play here... Tee it up!

Great day!

It was a hot day but the course was enjoyable had a decent amount of shaded areas which were very needed. The practice area is great. I'm looking forward to my next round
