Usually a good bang for your buck

Greens weren't a slick and true as they usually are, and it was pretty backed up by the time we teed off on the 10th - very slow from then on. The driving range has been closed the last few times I've played here, so there's no opportunity for a warmup.

Thank you for playing IMG Academy Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Overrated

This course played well beneath it’s rating. While the greens are in great shape and among the best in the area, oddly the areas around the greens and approaches and are there areas are not well-maintained, with some bare patches and lots of weeds. Lots of beginners and old timers Slow playing and a lot of cross hole traffic. Overall experience from check in through play and departure were beneath expectations.

IMG Greens are Great

Greens are in amazing shape. The course overall is pretty good shape recovering from our dry season. Fairway and tee boxes are slowly getting better. Staff as always extremely friendly. If you are in the area give it a go.
