Rating 73.1

Fountains Country Club offers three different 18-hole championship courses, the West, North, and South. The golf courses sprawl across 865 lushly landscaped acres that are part of a gated golf community. All of the courses were designed in the 1970s by the team of Robert Von Hagge and Bruce Devlin. Water hazards come into play several times throughout the course and there are also strategically placed bunkers along the greensides. The golf course has some mild undulations but the terrain is mostly flat. All of the courses are player-friendly and diverse enough to accommodate a range of skill levels but conveniently, there are also five different sets of tees. In addition to the golf courses, Fountains boasts well conditioned practice facilities including putting greens, pitching areas, bunkers, and an expansive driving range.

Just don’t play here.

Layout is bizarre. 300 yard drives in between holes.
Quit after 13 holes, was going to be a five hour round.
We were told there would be a food/ beverage cart out there. Never saw her. Called pro shop 2x from course, straight to VM.

Meah. Just an alright.!

The course itself was ok. Nothing bad to particularly say.
Getting lost for 15 minutes trying to find the next tee box was frustrating. Seriously if they don't want large signs in the neighborhood. I get it. Then paint something on the sidewalks. Also no GPS in the carts. Nice fans though.
I play a lot of golf and there are certainly far worse courses
I paid more than my friends! Why? I'll
Never know.
Would I play there again? Yes. Hopefully not the WEST course. In a real rating out of a 10.00 it gets a 6.524. Not bad. But not exceptional

Fountains West

Fairways in very good shape for in-season South Florida; greens had a lot of sand on them but still rolled true. Bunkers had good quality sand. Holes are spread out all over the place and signage could be better. Round took 4 1/2 hours on a Thursday afternoon. Pro shop and starter both asked to see Golfnow confirmation but were very pleasant about it. Carts were very comfortable. Courses in quality condition cost a lot in South Florida in season.

Nice course

Nice course, back Nine is much better than front Nine. Played using Golfnow Hot tee time and paid $90. The normal rate that they quoted me at the course was $85.

Not a great experience

We had a slow group in front of us which didn’t bother us at all but the group behind us was up our tail and super rude. I’m not going to hit into the group in front of us but clearly what’s what the group behind us wanted us to do which was really unnecessary. It wasn’t that slow and this just really soured our round. Complain to a marshal or call into the clubhouse but don’t ruin our round.

Average course, above average price

This course recently started allowing the public to play. Although the restaurant and other clubhouse amenities are very nice, the course is average at best. The conditions were average. The pace of play was slow, and the price charged is well above what a comparable course would charge. Overall, overrated, and not good value for money.

Fast Greens

This is a fairly typical, South Florida condo-type layout. Course was hard and fast with fairways a little tight to clip the ball. However, whatever shortfalls there were, the greens made up for it. They were fast, true but fair. I love fast greens and it was fun to putt on them...just stay below the hole when possible.

The Fountains South course

Had heard the Fountains was very nice, and this time we heard right. The course was in very good condition and the design was both challenging and fair. Water was in play but not overly invasive to higher handicappers. I would recommend the course and look forward to playing it again.
