Compliments to the Owners

Turkey Creek has made an amazing resurgence. I always make a point to compliment the groundskeepers as they, along with many others, have brought this wonderful course back to life after years of neglect and closure.

This is our favorite course in the area. Gainesville CC is nice and has an interesting layout, but we enjoy the layout at Turkey Creek better. The CC at Lake City is nice, and has an interesting layout, but we enjoy Turkey Creek better,

This feels like a golf coursed community but, unlike some, the houses are not obtrusive. You are likely to encounter people walking, and walking their dogs, through the neighborhood. Everyone has been friendly and waves as if you are part of their community. It has a nice laid-back feel.

Rolling hills and a few lakes give the course "visual interest.." We have played many great golf courses in the U.S. We are not so interested in playing brutal courses that may be enjoyable for pros (Harbor Town in South Carolina comes to mind) as we are in playing courses that have landscape variety and visual interest. Golf is a wonderful walk in a park for us. My wife loves this course because her game is played entirely in the fairway, although she drives the ball about as far as I hit my 9-iron. Often, the women's tees are so far forward that it suits her game. That is a nice touch for short hitters.

The amount of work done to restore this course is obvious. The course is in good shape and they are still making improvements. As I mentioned, I always compliment the landscape personnel when I can.

The practice range was undergoing renovation last time I played. It looks to be an even more solid amenity. We usually enjoy a simple meal on the covered porch of the clubhouse after our round. It has a great view of the 18th hole. Do not expect the pro shop to have much more than some sleeves of a small selection of balls. Providing a few more items is probably on the future to-do list. The cart paths could use some improvement.

We will continue to play here as everything about the course, and it's feel, appeals to us.

Love Turkey Creek Golf Club

Great course layout, friendly staff, and great restaurant on the 19th. Plus the price for 18 holes is fantastic. I would definitely recommend coming out for a round. Also nice range with great prices on buckets.

Rain out

Course is just ok, even for gainesville. some patchy greens, very SLOW, fairways are just ok.

Service- We were rained out after 5 and went to ask for a rain check, but couldn’t because “we booked online,” even after watching other patrons in front of us get one (presumably because they used another platform)…idk why they think that’s right, basically acted like they don’t see any money from golf now. I felt basically like i got scammed.

All I’ll say is, I never had a problem getting a rain check at Bostick, if there’s any chance of rain I would just go there. They basically took my money and ran with it, and the best they could do was “yeahhhh sorry.”

Pleased with the revitalization

Having come back from the dead, this course is good. Still needs work, but the effort in getting this back into shape is obvious. I plan to play it anytime UF is closed or has events.
