golf course wasn't the only challenge

So there's a gate to access before entering the property. The only problem is that you need a code. So I call the golf course. Voicemail! Not a good way to get started. Finally, a helpful person in the neighborhood knew the code to open the gate. I was greeted by a very friendly golf course employee who brought a cart and provided valuable information. Course is very interesting and challenging but it needs work. Some of the greens had bare patches with sand. The Bunkers were kind of hard and needed some work. The rough was also difficult as balls could disappear not far from the fairway. There were no rakes for the bunkers. There was no drinking water either. Pace of play was not much of an issue as there were not many people playing. However, we were held up a bit on the final holes by a fivesome. If it's still open to the public, I may try it again in the fall.

Sweetwater

Lots of doglegs. First hole needs to be reconfigured. Love the back 9. It has more character than the front 9. Club house under construction and owner working to improve course.

Sweetwater

Loved the layout. Back nine different than front nine. Hole one does not give you a good impression of the overall course. Tee boxes and bunkers need work.

Lotta Work to Do

I read some reviews and went out for a round at Sweetwater. There are a lot of holes that don't align with your Garmin or other GPS device. It's very tight, and the more you play here the easier it would be. A few bare spots on greens, a lot of weeds and sand spurs in the rough. All in all, I would play here again but wouldn't buy a house here.

Nice Layout

My wife and I played this private course for the first time as part of the public promotion. It is a nice and challenging layout. A few of the greens had bare spots, but in general were in good condition. The club house is under construction so some of the cart paths are no paved yet. We hope to play again soon.

Good- Greens slow but in good shape.
Bad- All other course conditions.
I can't believe this was a private course which had paying members.
Back nine has a much better layout than front.
Play here for $35 but no more until they buy fertilizer and weed killer.

Great round

My friend and I took advantage of this course being temporarily open to the public. Nice layout with several unique challenging holes. Some grass was a little patchy, but that's to be expected with our unrelenting heat. Overall it was in pretty good shape. Very few amenities as they are finishing renovations of the clubhouse but the starter was very friendly. I'll definitely try this one again before they close to the public.

Quiet Country Club

Really enjoyable game at Sweetwater - felt like we had the course to ourselves as only saw two other groups all day!! Lovely welcome when we arrived but a bit disappointed that clubhouse not yet finished or open. Course in good condition for time of year and greens lovely and smooth though not the quickest. A few dodgy patches on some greens but hole locations generally away from these areas. Would certainly recommend and will look to return next time in or near Apopka.

Tight course but in good condition

This course is very tight with trees on both sides of the fairways, particularly on the back 9. However, it is a nice course which is in pretty good condition. The greens were too fuzzy this time, but I suspect that they mow them closer on the weekends.

" the Flash from the Past "

." A little disappointing to be honest "
... this Golf course was such a treat to play in the 1980's -- 1990's -- 2000's ,
when we were members of the Club.

On a Positive note ....
Just needs a little TLC and investment $$$$$ to return it to the Pride of Past !!!

The Staff was very Professional and Personal ...
" Thanks for the opportunity to visit "

Sweetwater CC is "sweet"

Played with a relative who takes group golf trips regularly. Thought Sweetwater was better than any course he had ever playe in Fla. And better than most in the Carolinas.
Thought it was beautiful, and gee a were excellent. Much better than courses he had paid 4-5 times as much to play, although we lucked in to the lowest price I had ever seen on this course. Best golf deal either of us ever had. No waiting on Fri. Afternoon.
