Mixed review on South course

Positives: The layout itself is awesome. Not impossibly long par 5s from the light green tees (2nd longest) but reaching the green in two is high risk. Par 3s were a nice mix of distances and the Par 4s had a good amount of blind greens when on the tee box.
Negatives: Course was in awful condition. Greens were next to impossible to putt on, seemed like the course has only been given the bare minimum mowing and treatment which is a shame because if it was in shape, would easily be a top course in the area.

Absolutely awful conditions!! Too bad!! Was a great course back in the day. It would be great if someone bought property and brought course back to life, but it appears it’s soon to close.

East Course Needs Much Improvement

Wow, has the east course ever gone downhill. Our group plays the east course normally once or twice a month. However, we had not booked there for probably the last 2 months. It was noted on GolfNow that the course had been aerated, and that is not what I am complaining about. The problem is that the fairways had not been moded for some time and it was hard to determine where the fairway ended and the ruff began. We actually had trouble finding our ball on the fairway a couple of times. The greens are more weeds and dirt than grass. I hate to give a negative review, but there is just no getting around the obvious lack of maintenance. We'll try again in another month or two and hope for improvement.

in need of rain and seeding

Although the course is barren and overgrown in many that areas and the greens need to be addressed, I feel that the summer rains will greatly help.to get the course back to playable conditions.

Please understand that all courses in the central Florida area are facing the same issues.

Insult to the term “golf course”

This was the worst kept course I’ve ever seen. The course was ravaged by wild boars. Multiple flag sticks weren’t even standing. There was no grass on the course, only weeds. Terrible. $5 would’ve been too much.

Poorly maintained

The course was not well maintained as there were weeds in the bunkers and many of the greens had bare spots and were brown.

Nice to play

We (2 of us) were first out so no waiting finished in 2.5 hr and that is walking around the ponds and along some of the bush areas looking for balls and wildlife.
The course was in reasonable shape there are some areas on the greens and fairways that are rough, the sand traps have not been worked in a long time and are full of weeds, tee blocks are ok, but only paid $28
Better than some of the other courses in the area for the same money
Worth the money paid if you are looking for better you need to pay 3 or 4 times more.

Nice layout of course

We actually played the east course. No problem switching because not one in front of us and no one in back of us. Course was not worth 36.00 to play. Fairways all weeds, no grass. Putting surface getting bad spots on all of them.

Nice course and good value

Course is in decent condition. Greens were good but the grass in some fairways was a bit sparse. A nice mix of challenging and relatively easier holes. Good value, so will definitely play it again.
