I wish it was better

For the money, it wasn't terrible. This is especially true if you are working on your drives. From the fairways, my own rule was move the ball to some grass. If you putt within a foot of the cup, it's in. The greens were also extremely rough. It you want to get out and hack through a round this isn't terrible.

Value course

Enjoyed playing the course even though the greens are not in good shape. Was very scenic and moderately challenging thanks to bunkers and water. Great place to work on everything in your bag except the putter! Though it was fun and challenging putting...

Underated

A good golf course should require outstanding shot making and this course does.
The routing on the front nine is spectacular and challenging but unfortunately overgrown and on occasion water sodden although not as bad as the last time I played there.
Holes number three, four and five are spectacular but the overgrowth of the trees and vines obscure landing zones and detract from the true beauty of the layout.
Mowing the fairways and general upkeep is a little behind and will not get better with a fee of $10 which makes the trip worth it.
The front 9 is more links style and wide open with length and changes in height being the imposing factors here.
The back 9 is not as challenging or shaded but still maintains its punch.
For the price a bargain. Remember to take mosquito repellant.
I would love to see a big outfit take over this course as holes 3,4,5,7,8 would be money with a few changes and maintenance.

Like playing in a cow pasture.

Don't waste your money, weeds all over and the greens are mostly dirt and crap grass.

Ruff

eVERYTHING IN THIS COURSE IS ROUGH. However, it does have some cow pasture charm. The front 9 is pretty difficult with lots of water challenges. Back 9 is more traditional.

GREAT Practice Course

I usually pay about $4 for a bucket of balls and they serve their purpose, but for $1 I got to play this course and get in some good practice.
The layout of this course is great, there are some very difficult holes that require skill to play...and some are wide open and easy...
BUT not only did I practice my ball striking, and chipping and putting ... I also got to practice putting with my wedge, no need to use a putter...no grass.
Seriously, I wish this was closer to my house, I would play it all the time vs. hitting balls at the range.

Not a golf course

This is a joke,5 different types of grass,but no Bermuda.
They shouldn’t charge anything to play this course.
Why even call this a golf course.
No grass on greens,flags never moved,every bit of grass is cut with a yard rotary mower.
This is a embarrassment!
I wish it was better very good location.Beautiful water fall on course.

What a shame....

Played this course several times over the past few years, unfortunately the grounds have not been maintained for reasons unknown. There is work from the Power Co. putting in new High Power lines, but the front nine was just as bad.
The Fairways were not defined nor tee boxes. The greens, or shall i say what USED to be greens....are all dried up and burnt. Ranger swung by as we were on 17 and said it was "Summer-Time" and they'll come back in the winter...I doubt it! Shame, because the course has a fun layout. Front Nine is Florida woods and the road trip through the woods from 5 to 6 is awesome! and Back Nine has a "Links" feel to it with the undulating hills parallel with the former fairways.
I'm not sure if I will play here again....Ill keep an eye on the fairways and green from the road.
Good luck!

Awful

I have been a member of GolfNow for 3 years now and I can not believe that you have this course represent you this course had no grass on any green only weeds and the fairway wasn’t any better we stopped play after 13 holes and will never play there again. Just a awful experience.

Basic golf

The greens are terrible. Fairways need work. There's power line construction on the back 9 that has shortened a couple of holes.
But... If you're looking for a course to practice your game, this is it. It's cheap and you can have your own cart and play alone. Important during these times.
It's a friendly course and there are a few tricky holes. I get there at least once a week.

Practice round

The fairways and greens were poor. In addition there were a lot of pipeline construction going on. Lastly, lookout for the swamp ball collector. A man was neck deep in a stagnate pond when we were ready to hit our second shot and scared us when all we saw was a humans head sticking above the water lol.

A Unique Course

I enjoyed the variety of holes, especially on the front nine. There were shots over water and swamp - both to the fairway off the tee onto a green. There was also a long winding path through native vegetation that was very picturesque. Although the course wasn’t in great shape in terms of grass and greens it presented many challenges for the average golfer and was well worth playing - especially at the reasonable rate.

5- SOMES

A 5-some teed of ahead of us on the first hole (where is someone or a sign to stop this?) After 3 holes we decided to play the back 9. On hole number 14 we caught ANOTHER 5-some. This is RIDICULOUS .....Next we will be following a 6-some or even an 8-some. THIS course has to START controlling this!!!!!!!
