Bring your balls if you don't hit it straight.

Course is very nice, and we played with a gentleman who is a member, and he was very helpful, in telling me where to hit, and not hit it. without him I likely would have scored worse than I did, but still played OK, and really enjoyed the course. Jack Nicholas, is very apparent as you play with protected greens and very challenging greens. Bring extra balls, as you may need them if you don't hit it straight and know where it is going. the good news, is you will find several while you are looking for yours. I lost 2 balls, that is 2 more than normal for me.

Very much a must play when I return to the area.

Enjoy and play on.....

Old corkscrew

This place could be really special. They need to fixed the green speed. Not much grass in greens and very slow.

The layout and location is excellent. Again, if they paid attention to detail and course maintenance it would be AWESOME. until then it gets a rating of a “C”

A++

Played during a very busy time. Staff was friendly and helpful at all times and dealt with it all perfectly. Course rangers kept things moving. The cart/GPS and directions around the course were awesome! The routing on the course leaves a lot of driving but it’s nice scenery and incredible layout. It is a challenging course. Lots of undulations to the greens but they rolled fast and played true. Highly recommend playing it if you’re in the area.

Playable but challenging

Course was nice, but lots of divots. They did not have sand on the carts, coolers or rakes for the bunkers due to Covid. They also were not wearing masks inside. Would come back if I could find a better deal. A bit on the expensive side- but it’s Florida in season.

Not a good value

Old Corkscrew is not a good value, and I'm puzzled by the many reviews that praise this course. It's certainly scenic, but so are many other southwest Florida courses. The greens were slow and bumpy. Overall conditions were decent but not what I would expect at this price point.

second trip

Course is very good, not excellent. COVID does not help with limited amenities and limited play. I would expect more when we get back to "normal". Right now, sacrifices are required.

Chummy country club at high end resort prices

Course is excellent
Members in first hour are snooty and you shouldnt allow members to not control play at these prices
