Not Bad

Played this course last year when I was visiting the area and it was in very good shape. So, decided to play again this year and was disappointed in the overall conditions of the course. A few holes on front 9 catch path, and 1 hole had a temporary green. The entire back 9 was cart path only. The greens were ok, but they were slow.

Disappointed Return

So we sign up for a nice early morning tee time, show up an hour prior to hit a bucket on the range utilize the chipping area and then wonder over to the putting green before we tee off.. (plenty of time) However once we arrived we were informed the range was closed because “it was under water” it’s SWFL in the summer so we’ll give them a mulligan on that one.. So at this point we figured we would just go to the chipping area just get loose. (as much as you can chipping) lol We then we’re informed the chipping area was for “members only” and there’s a smaller area next to the green we could utilize but only if we purchased a bucket of balls to chip?? Iv played 100’s of rounds of golf at courses all over the country, never been told I had to pay for balls to chip. ITS ALWAYS INCLUDED!?!? I voiced my opinion with a snicker and then proceeded to the “Guest chipping area” WHAT A JOKE! Fairway grass was disappointingly manicured, Greens we’re slow and patchy. There was a temporary green on hole 7 that we weren’t even advised of. Moral of the story is this place thinks that it’s a prestigious country club and it’s not even close! I will not be returning nor would I ever recommend this course to anyone….

nice layout, poor conditions

the rainy season has been tough on this course. It's in serious need of a major drainage project. Ownership has done a lot to improve the course, but until the drainage issue is dealt with it is almost unplayable during summer.

I arrived at the course on time for my tee time. The pro shop was closed and shuttered. I had received no prior notice of the course being closed. I think that is pretty inconsiderate on the part of the management.

Improving

It’s easy to see they are making many improvements to the course and it is much better than it was 2 years ago. However, the day we played it was cart path only. A few holes were wet but not enough to shut the entire course down. There were temporary greens due to construction and no reduction to rate$: no paper in rest rooms on course, ice/water machines broken, etc. Front desk attendant was a jerk on top of it all. Should wave been warned about poorer daily course conditions.
