Bad Conditions, Terrible Pace of Play

The greens have been verti-cut in Peak Season, so they’re essentially unplayable. It hasn’t rained in 3 months and yet the course is still muddy, so literally every shot is a mud ball. Grass is burnt out in places, and the course generally looks unkept. Pace was 5 hours for a weekday afternoon round. No ranger to be found

Cold Florida Golf

Course has a good layout, not much water or out-of-bounds to contend with. In spite of the lack of water and woods the layout offers a good challenge to the armature and high handicapped players. On this day the fairways were somewhat browned out due to lack of rain. Some tee boxes are in dire need of help. Greens are in good shape and roll true, but watch out for those subtle breaks. Cost wise I believe management could drop their price by $5 - $8 depending on the time of day.

Chilly day on the course but the staff is really nice and the course is in reasonably good condition. Still some hard spots and thin grass around the greens. A fun course though.

Overall - good.

Great staff. Layout was fun. Value pretty good. However, greens were very beat up, slow and not very well-maintained.

good value course and challenging

I have played here a few times and it is an enjoyable course. It isn't pristine like some of the more expensive courses but for the money, it is a good deal. Great layout. Challenging from the blues. Some tee boxes are a bit beat and the sand can be extremely deep. The Guys in the pro shop are nice.
