Constant Improvement

Fairways and tees in nice shape. Greens are coming out of aeration and repairs have been made to several.
Glad to see Venetian putting in the work. Looking forward to my next visit.
As always from Ben inside to Gary and Mike on course, service was A-Plus as always.
Put Venetian on your list to play if your in the area.

Favorite Golf Course in New Smyrna.

My husband and I llove this gold course and enjoy playing a round or two of golf. Has challenging features and wonderful for the avid or beginner golfer.

VBGC has friendly and accommodating staff at the pro shop.

Higley recommend this beautiful golf course.

What is happening to the Greens!!

We enjoy playing this course for a number of reasons however the greens were in very poor shape. We played here a couple of weeks ago after they had punched the greens and they seemed to be in better shape then. It appears that they may have developed a fungus on them. They are working to get this repaired but it may take awhile.

Not worth the money

Venetian really has the layout and location to be a great course but just really is not maintained well and is overpriced for the area. I only play out of convenience there. They are much nicer ones in the area

Great first impression!

First time playing here; the staff was very friendly, the pace of play was excellent and the course was in pretty good shape. I played as a single and was quickly permitted to play through when coming up on foursomes. And, I shot 83, nine (9) strokes better than my handicap.

I will return to this course!

Disappointed ... Recovery Conditions

Course is still in a recovery state after recently being punched. When this isn't communicated up front it really sucks. We all understand it's a necessary evil, but course mgmt has a responsibility to be open and honest about it. I also didn't appreciate walking up to the front door and the gentlemen from the pro shop lighting up a cigarette while we walk in. Couldn't wait 5 minutes until after we were checked in? We were also told the cart girl's name and that she would be around. Never saw her once. We even called into the pro shop after 13 holes and were told she was out on the course. I love the layout of the course, but the attention to detail is substandard. Hoping things turn around.

Great time!

Overall the course solid, nice layout, decent conditions, and a pleasant staff. That said, the course could certainly use some watering/rain. Several of the greens were in very rough shape.
