Here Agsin

I've played this course many times in the last 27 years, and it has changed for the better during those years. Trees removed, fairways worked on, etc. This last round was played on an excellent course and a fine day. The fairways were good for springtime, and the greens ran true. You couldn't want much more than that. I will suggest that you try lunch at the snack bar, especially the Angus burger, about a half pound of tender juicy meat cooked to perfection.

Good Greens

The fairways seemed like they could use more fertilizer. Course doesn’t need much work for it to be a great course in great condition. Tea boxes could use fertilizer they needed to be thickened up as well as the fairways but it is a fun course to play. I’ve seen this course in better condition than this and I’ve also seen it worse

Fun Course

It’s very open, Florida Links style. The course is in good shape and the staff is great. It’s a great value and worth the drive to Crystal River.

Slowwww play

Love this course due to weather conditions cart path only could have been contributor to slow play. Four men in front of three women myself single and two men behind. We would all be on the same stretch of whole waiting. Unusual for this course I enjoyed the beautiful weather but could hear complaints from others. Can not wait to play this course again.

JUST OK

The fairways were more sand than grass and made fore very hard approach shots. The greens were just ok. Wouldn’t recommend if you are looking for a good time.
