Great layout with challenging and interesting holes. Requires thought. Tee boxes and greens are in rough shape, though.

Burned out dry course with no rough to stop balls from rolling out of bounds or into water hazards. Greens in very poor condition from fungus and other damage. impossible to putt many times without damaged sections in the path of the putt

I was very disappointed because I have played this course many times before and it was generally in good condition.

January golf

As other reviews stated, greens very bumpy and rough spots on most of them. Most tees were in rough shape. Blocks need to be moved more often and over seed most tees. Fairways and roughs were pretty good for season. Lots of water but a fair layout.

Nice Course, surprised at is slope rating

This was my first time playing Cimarrone and I’ll be back. As a 16 handicap, I felt the course to be challenging but playable. Loved the layout of the course. Greens were fast. The course was in fairly good condition for this time of year. Played from the white tee boxes and thought that the slope rating was a little low. Water in play on just about every hole. Plus plenty of green side bunkers.

Fairways could use some more grass and greens could be better.

Nice course - below par greens

Overall a good course but the greens need a lot of attention. Most putts bounced to the hole. Water water everywhere but enough fairway for a safe landing.

Gotta be honest- Staff on point. Course HORRIBLE.!

The Tee Boxes are tore up, uneven and few have grass. NOT one green would be considered good, or even fair. They are horrible. Layout is nice and challenging. Fairways were playable.
It's a shame because the staff are polite and professional. I only wish the course measured up to the staff. Can't blame what I saw today on weather, either. They really should be ashamed to charge as much as they do. Oh...the bunkers,, and I use the term loosely because I dont know what they are. Maybe pathetic. Again, cant blame the weather...use better sand. I'm really sorry to leave this review...but it's the truth. I've spoken to the owner before and seems lime a great guy, but he should invest more in this property. Until these things chaange, I cant go back there.

Better tee boxes

I know it’s winter but the tee boxes should have more grass. A lot of tee boxes we were teeing off in dirt. Some greens were bumpy and missing grass.
