Beautiful Course

Best maintained course in Marion County. Always try to play here when I see a hot deal. Bar tender was very nice. Wish I played better, but the course is fabulous.

Lush

Airated greens, great staff, lots of sand but no water. Plenty of sea grass to catch errand shots but great lies in the fairways but all the holes kind of seemed the same.

Drink girl

Great course . A lot of sand but no water hazards . Fairways perfect, greens just punched , but they did call me and tell me about it , which i thought was great . But seriously such a nice club , you have to have a drink girl out there … pace of play . 4 people in 3 1/2 hours . Played green tees nice challenge at 6600 yards . You have to navigate through the bunkers . Overall great course and staff .

Great day at candler!

As always the course is beautiful and in great shape. They had aerated recently so the greens weren't perfect but that is to be expected. Thats why we got a great deal, I'm sure! Overall, candler never disappoints!

Unfriendly stafg

Stay away as the staff here is extremely snobby and rigid. Paid for 18 holes but the Ranger kicked us off after 6 holes. Was given a "rain check" for 9 holes but after returning... they insisted we had to pay for ALL 18 holes again.

Very nice golf course. Excellent greens and staff. I use to play this course a lot but this course and others have raised their prices to where you can not afford to play them as often.
