The greens were fast but yet they would hold the ball when landing on them.
This course is in great shape and offers a nice challenge. The course has plenty to offer; elevation changes, dog legs in both directions, and lots of water hazards on the back nine. I was able to stick the greens without any issues; however, the undulation of the greens provided many difficult puts. Had a great day of golf and will definitely be back to play the Country Club of Silver Springs Shores.
Better than expected, but...
This course was better than expected based on previous comments. Staff was as friendly as could be and course conditions were good relative to most other courses in the area. Here are my observations: (1) The bunkers are almost unplayable. Too much sand and worse, according to one employee, is that they have started "fluffing them up" meaning the sand has been raked up in some fashion that essentially means every ball that goes into the bunker gets plugged. There is virtually no way to get out of a bunker cleanly, so my experience is that every bunker comes with at least a 2 stroke penalty (and I'm a decent bunker player, by the way). (2) These greens are really tricky! Very sloped (many of them "domed") and have as much grain to them as any I've seen. Unless you hit the green in the correct quadrant, a 3 putt is a real possibility. I would play here again but only with the Golf Now deal pricing. There is a fine line between "challenging" and "fun to play." This course is challenging and the only fun part was the price we were paying.
Good shape for the fall season
Always a fun but challenging course. Fairways in decent shape and roughs are mowed. Green a little slow but true.
Have played this course 20 to 30 times, The greens are in excellent shape and the fairways and tee boxes in reasonably good shape. The surrounds , in particular the cart paths are not in good shape. The course is very good value for the money, and I would have no hesitation recommending it.
Good test of golf
Very good all around, but please repair some of the cart paths!
What a value for the money!!! This course was amazing. The staff makes it all the better.
This course is setup great
Great layout, elevation changes, contours… good green speeds. A must play course..Overall, a wonderful experience!!!
When I moved to Ocala last November. Silver Springs Shores was one of the first courses that I played. Although I really liked the course layout. Up and down the course was a mess. After hearing many good things about how well the course was doing this year. I decided it was time to check it out. Boy, was I pleased. After only paying for a $22 hot deal. I found the course overall to be in excellent shape. The greens were outstanding. The fairways over-all were very good. The rough was so-so. And still a little too much crab grass mixed into the playing turf. But nothing obscenely disruptive. Even saw my first Ocala alligator. I'm not sure I'd pay $40 or $50 to play here. But I think if they continue to improve the course; I could get there.
Great and getting better.
This course continues to improve. I am looking forward to the fall to see how the cooler temperatures are handled.
