Nice layout - good shape

Nice layout. Feeling of privacy backed up to reserve. Some tight shots but often opened up in landing area. Greens rolled true but were noticeably slow.

The greens are horrible. They do not maintain them at all. It could be a very nice facility.

Walked

Not walking friendly

Both in terms of layout as well as staff attitude, walkers seem unwelcome. I called before booking to ensure walking is available, yet upon arriving, everyone -- from the bag drop attendant to the golf shop staffer checking us in to the starter -- challenged our choosing to walk. "Just keep up," was the most common refrain. Yet ... we waited on every shot; there is no pace of play monitor, no marshal ... "pace of play" seems to be no more than a warning once the round begins.

Nice but challenging

The course layout poses many challenges and makes the play interesting. The greens were running slow making putting speeds inconsistent. Watch out for alligators on the banks.

Play the combo tees

Course is fantastic, and a decent value compared to others in the area. It can be awfully short if you play from the blue tees, (recommended by starter both times.) Recommend Black/Blue combo for 5-15 handicaps so you're not hitting irons on most tee boxes. Greens were a bit slow both times I've played but rolled true. No bunkers on the course. Wildlife all over the place, wild hogs, osprey's and alligators

Play the right tee's

Great course, and will certainly be on the "Play again" list. Review the card before you decide what tee's to play. Yardage is short but the course is tight. I good condition, greens were a little slow but very true to read. Service on the course was very good, and friendly. as were the starter who helped me decide what tee's I should play. Enjoyed it very much.

Great Course, The Raptor barks, but doesn't bite

Play the right tee's, don't be fooled by the yardage, the tips are no place for the timid. You will enjoy this course if you play at the right level, and the right tee box. Very well maintained, and fun to play. Lots to look at while you play. Enjoyed this very much and will be back

Good course, fairways are looking beat up

We play this course often, but first time since mid-December. The fairways are looking a bit beat up, as are many of the par 3 tee boxes. Other parts of the course are nice. Staff is always friendly and helpful.
