Greens and fairways were in great shape. Some of the best greens in town.

Blah

Tee time was 2:20. With the pace of play, it was far too late to complete the round before sunset (6 PM). Wind had nothing to do with pace of play.
Starter said, although first tee was open for 20 minutes, I wasn't allowed to go due to GolfNow rules.
Ranger said the slow pace of play was due to the tournament running late.
I suggest GolfNow: Candler Hills/GolfNow guarantee complete round or not bother to offer such late tee times. Or not offer any times when tournaments are played. Ranger had said this problem has happened before.

This course is in the top 3 of courses in the Ocala area. The greens and fairways were beautiful to play on. If you putted below the hole you 1or2 putts, above the hole 2 to 3 putts.. lots of sand but nice to hit out of. My only beef was the group ahead of us, gave them a hole and a half head start and caught up to them at the 3rd hole. Waited almost 10 minutes a hole the rest of the way. Told they were 2 holes open in front of them , of course they were members and nothing was going to be said

Gilandsue2 needs to hold his horses. That complaint was his fault. Don't blame course. u made the time. Being early doesn't mean I go early.

Chilly, windy November Saturday

Really love the course (one of my favorites). The weather was terrible and we had to wait every hole on the threesome ahead of us. Luckily got our 18 in just before dark. We will return for a “do over”.

Nice track always in excellent condition

Love playing the course and grab every chance we get, but since rates have gone up, it’s a stretch for our budget.
