Nicest staff ever

I have been golfing for 20 years and never have I encountered a more friendly group of people than the crew at Gainesville CC. In addition to keeping the course in great condition, tough in January, the staff was out of this world friendly. Great greens, great people and a decent layout. Highly recommend

Nice course, great staff!

The value for the money is fantastic but what really sets this course is the great staff. The guys working their tails off on the course are beyond kind, and very courteous and sensitive to the player. They took great care of the greens during a time of year that it’s really tough to do so and even helped me around the course as it was my first time when they saw me. From pro shop to the 18th green, couldn’t have been happier.

Disappointing

Having lived in the area previously, played the Country Club a few times in the past. Could not believe how bad this course has deteriorated. What once was lush conditions is now mostly dirt. Almost all of the tee boxes were totally dirt, and the fairways were sparse at best. The greens were ok, and most of the bunkers. Some of the bunkers had not been maintained. This once was the best course in Gainesville, but is in dire need of some improvements. Won't be coming back.

Most overpriced golf course

If you ever played West End in Gainesville when they were open imagine that but for $50. This course is far from nice, fairways are unplayable and greens are okay at best. Tee boxes are non existent.

Gainesville CC

Overall I really enjoyed this course. Great layout, greens rolled really nice. Tee boxes and some areas in fairways need work. But all landing areas were nice. I will definitely play here again.

Nice greens

Course was in overall decent shape, tee beds and some spots and fairways need some work. The greens were in excellent shape. Greenskeepers, marshals and starters were all very friendly and helpful.

Just OK but would play at MUCH lower rate

The ambiance is that of a good public course.

The sand is hard (might be because of the weather)
The greens were beat-up around the fringe.

I paid $96 and some change for me and my wife but felt that didn't match the experience.

I don't mind paying over $100 for a round for one as we have a Golf savings account for just the occasion.

I believe the prices may have been inflated due to the season of northerners migrating south to continue to play golf during the winters months in the USA.

The staff was just so-so. There was an elderly gentlemen that found it difficult to return my greeting as he barely lift his head and gave me a soft nod.

Now that was like bizzaro world because the golf patrons were extremely nice which is usually the opposite on a course. I guess we all were just thankful to be out on the course during this pandemic season.

I would play this course again and recommend it to a friend if the fee is less than $30 and I am in the area as I won't make a special trip to play it.

Will go back for sure.

The staff is super friendly and very helpful.
There are a few greens and tee boxes that are in the regrowth process but the course is kept up and you can see that staff is working hard to improve the course.

The gentleman working in the grill area was great and worked hard to get the food completed in a timely manner and make sure we were taken care of.

We will go back for sure.

Nice course

Great course! My only complaint is no grass on tee boxes for some reason and giant oak trees block most fairway shots. Please trim back trees.

Sunday outing

Let me start off by saying greens were amazing! My son who was up from Orlando played this great course. A few of the tee boxes
were in a little rough shape and has some drainage issues in a couple of spots. I enjoyed playing with my son and we finished the round in about 4 hours excellent service by the cart girl..
