First time playing course

Today was my first time playing the course. Staff was very friendly. It just opened up so the overall greens conditions are still not ideal, but they are working hard to keep improving them. It was a great layout and I will definitely be going back!

Getting Better

Is course is coming along fine. Wet conditions are plaguing all of north central Florida so don’t be surprised if it’s cart path only .The facility is working hard on the golf course and it shows greens need a little work but that’s understandable due to weather.

Has seen its better days

I’ve played this course several times over the last 6 months. Usually it is in good shape. However, today the course was rough. We were happy with 2 greens out of 18, all the others had dips, holes, and filled with sand. Very disappointed in this course today and especially the fact that they charge full price with the course in this shape.

On the plus side, the pace of play was good and I do really like the course layout.

terrible greens

I believe this is a community owned course, it's in rough shape. Many of the greens didn't have grass, so the sand that was in place, was just being washed out from the rains. No water coolers or ice were available. Greenside bunkers were dirt, no surprise at that rate. Rough could be thick, just an notice, it is rough after all ! Maybe go for the driving range and practice, not a place for a good round.

Getting Better

The course is getting better but the greens are almost unplayable in this condition. Things were smooth at first but once we came to no. 6 it was a dead stop. The next three holes took 30 minutes each and no ranger in site. A foursome ahead had four groups piled up at no. 9 tee box. Quit after 9 because no confidence in the course solving the problem.

TC GC

The staff informed us to go off back as the front was being fertilized. We made the turn preparing to play # 2 a ranger shows up and states the front is still closed the mtce was not completed. Back to #10 for the second time now there are 3 groups on the tee. Now being frustrated at having to play the back again we have to wait at the turn. As a group we decided to leave rather than get angrier.
