Candler hills

This is always a great course to play. Fairly challenging, especially the longest Par 5 in the State of Florida!

Cart people and starters are great and provide excellent service.

Restaurant is ALWAYS really slow. Even when you cann in order for the turn and give them plenty of time, yu have to expect to wait 10-15 minutes for them to hand you the food and drinks and you are pressed to keep your place on the tee to the group behind you. And they always forget the condiments and napkins. Be forewarned! Lol!

Otherwise, the course is always in excellent condition and a pleasure to play!

Too many rules

There are too many rules at this nice course, I played 9 holes and got rained out, the staff is ok overall but a few personalities and was treated rudely when I used golf cart to get to my car during a downpour so won't be back anytime soon.
