Cheap, but not worth it.

Course was in poor shape. Greens non-existing. Fairways not good either.
They let out fivesomes - that says it all.

Puttingh on sand is no fun........ball bounces and doesn't roll true. Course in good shape but someone needs to take care of greens (seeding versus sanding). It's the most important part of the game!

Nice place to play

It was a nice course to play on short notice. Played the front nine and found them to be fair and somewhat forgiving. They need more signage to make it easier to get around but I would play it again.

Incomprehensible treatment

On 1/1/2023, I was solo for12:;52 pm.. There were twosome and another solo who had same tee time However, the pro shop didn't want me to play with other three players and asked me to go solo and start with hole #10. I don't know why they didn't want me to go with other players. I am not white and reasonably sensed that it was more likely due to racism. This treatment gave me very bad feelings and I couldn't enjoy my round at this golf course. And I will never play there again.

A little disorganized

My home course was having a tournament and no tee times were available so we switched to Lake Wales. During the summer here conditions are pretty fair, and, the course drains well, so we played it a few times when our home course was too wet after the hurricanes. Like many courses in the area, the prices go up during the "snow bird" season. This one was up from the mid-$20s to $39. If the course condition improved dramatically, I could see the price jump, but...for the same conditions paying 60% more seems a bit opportunistic.

The worst thing in this round was...they had some sort of a scramble being played. I think our 9:02 tee time was supposed to be after the last group have gone through the first tee, but...somehow we ended up with at least one group from the scramble playing behind us (and we were the second group to start after they were supposed to have been gone). A scramble ought to move quickly, you're always playing from a good spot, you just collect the other balls. Also, at some point, as each group reaches the hole they started on, the course should suddenly open up. Neither of those things happened, so presumably folks played 18 plus depending on where they started.

I've played here several times and finished in 3:30 which is a good pace for a round. 4:45 was not a good pace. Our group being a three made that even worse since we were usually waiting to hit (can't blame the course for that).

It's a nice course, in good condition, but I think I will only plan to play during their off season if this is how their peak rate season is going to be.

Lake Wales A+

Played early morning tee time the day after Thanksgiving while visiting some family in the area. Thought the course played great, greens looked good and rolled true. I had absolutely no issues whatsoever, highly recommend. I would advise playing early as possible just because it looked extremely busy when I was finishing up, but playing early I had no issue with pace of play and felt I had the course to myself. Awesome day
