Shocking

This course is shocking... I have not played on it since graduating high school in 2014 so it’s been some years... I wanted a stroll down memory lane but what I got was tragic... it was not a great course back then but it is worse now. I honestly feel bad for those in charge. Pace of play was excellent as nobody else was on the course.... I finished in under two hours...

Disaster

What happened? This course went from 3 star to one star in my book. Front side in horrible shape. 3 Temporary greens on front. The rest unputtable. Backside bathrooms both out of order. That was the last straw. Feel bad for the people who thought they are living on a golf course. Very sad.

the greens are the worst i have ever played on anywhere in Tampa, St Pete area ..

The greens were not puttable at all, the front nine was closed, not sure why. I have never given any course a bad review ever. This course should be charging 10.00 around, the fairways are ok and good practice for a driving and chipping area. But you can not putt at all on the greens, we just chipped on and then went to next hole.

No Golf

The place wasn’t even open. But Golf Now got my money now I have to try to get my money back. What I did see of the course I won’t even go back for free. I would rate it negative stars. Don’t waste your time.

The reviews are pretty accurate

I prepaid for a hot deal rate. Front 9 was closed and back 9 had temporary greens. I'm only reviewing because I feel there should have been a warning posted or should have been discounted even further. Even at $20, I over paid.

I'm a sucker for good deals and quiet courses, so I may come back in the spring/summer when the course is at its best.

STAY AWAY!

This course is in horrific conditions. Looks like grass has been cut in months and I am just talking about the tee boxes. The greens were the worst I have seen in all the surrounding counties. Dont waste your money. Golf here if you dare!

Don’t do it!

Wow is all I can say. This course should be free. The tee boxes and greens are just the worst I have ever seen. The course is not maintained at all. If it’s not offered to play for free do not waist your time.

Good Value

The course is a bit rough but for $20, I don’t know how anyone can complain except for those who need plush grass to hit a golf ball. Those people are make believe golfers anyway. Don’t listen to the whiners. If you just want to hit the ball or you know how to actually compress a golf ball with tougher lies, then this course is DEFINITELY worth it. Also, it’s rarely busy. You can usually get around in about 3.5 hrs.
