Fantastic greens

This course was quite the surprise. A bit off the beaten path but well worth the stop! Greens were perfect and fairway were pretty great too. Only issue was the tee boxes but I’ll take that any time. Highly recommend for the money. We will definitely be playing here again very soon!

Must play in Tampa Area

This is a must play course! Summer golf in Florida is hit or miss with courses aerating greens and fairways and this course right now is in great shape and greens are fantastic for this time of year. Tee boxes I would give 8 out of 10, fairways 9 out of 10 and greens 10 out of 10 for this time of year. I would highly recommend.

Bring your best or pay the price!

I'm not sure about some of the reviews I've seen on here. This is a fantastic layout and considering all the rain we have had the last 2 months AND the seasonal aeration that all courses must do, this place is in terrific shape. The greens have healed nicely and were rolling about 10 on the stimp...they rolled out perfectly. The fairways were 9/10 a well. If u beat it sideways, then you are gonna have a tough round. The rough is penal. And for the price?!? 10/10 recommend

Used to be nice

I last played this course about 10 years ago. It was always very well kept and maintained. They staff was always on point. This is the first time I have played here since it was sold by the family that used to own it. I was extremely disappointed at the lack of care given to the course. The clubhouse and surrounding areas appear to be needing much repair. The course itself doesn’t look like it is regularly watered or mowed. No rakes in the traps, and just generally appears neglected. The staff wasn’t very friendly, and seemed to be bothered that they had to work. They switched the front and back nine, which doesn’t make sense since the former 18th, now the 9th, used to be a great finishing hole. It’s a shame that no one seems to care about making this course as good as it can be. It used to be a very nice place to play. I won’t be returning.

Great Course

Not the 1st time I’ve played. Greens are close to being back from punching. The greens have always been what makes this course good. The course isn’t country club pristine but it is a challenging layout. There are no gimmick holes. 8,9,11, &12 are 4 holes that pretty much require good shots in repeated order. 17 & 18 are two great closing holes. The owner is local and has what we all wish we had “our own golf course.” Each time I show up there is something new. He’s trying to get it up to standard and I will keep coming back.

Older course that seems to be trying to put back in shape

First time playing here. I played it because it was cheap in the AM and there is a reason for that. it's an older and kinda beat up course. Looks like the owners are attempting to improve it and they have a big job ahead of them. Staff was very cordial and professional and they have the pro shop clean and tidy. The greens had been recently punched so it's hard to judge what they are like. Decent Yamaha gas carts. Fairways are not great with lots of invasive grass throughout, tee boxes not great, traps are poor. Layout was OK but there are just too many issues for me to want to play here again. I would rather pay the extra $20 for better conditions. Maybe in a few years it will be better. Unless you are a hacker who only cares about how cheaply you can play, there are better choices.

I really like the course and the staff was friendly! What really ruined the golf was the very slow play, they really needed a ranger out there to get things moving, it would have taken 6 hrs to play 18 holes had we not kept going around people and skipping holes,.
That wasn’t fun. Only ended up playing 12 holes , and then we left. Some people just have very poor course etiquette.

Thank you for your review. We understand the need for a ranger. Starter, cart guys, waitresses etc. people don’t want to work. They don’t show etc. we try to tell everyone pace of play is most important. Please try to get in and under four hours. Most people play in three hours and 15 minutes up here. We do our best and will continue to try to monitor of the course. Things have been very inconsistent the last year and I’m sure the next time you come back pace of play will be much faster so that you do not have to jump around.

Course kinda stinks

I wouldn’t play here again. Every tee box slants and is not flat. Makes it impossible to aim off the tee. On top of that, this course is very narrow with difficult, fast greens. Not fun as an amateur. Wouldn’t recommend and won’t be back

Thank you for leaving your review. Your title “course kinda stinks” is misleading. Tees are not perfect but are far from your description. You said the course layout was poor of which most think it’s one of the best around. It’s fair to say the wind blew really hard Saturday and you played very poor. Our greens are really fast and based on other courses you okay you aren’t used to it. We are sorry that the course is more difficult than those in your rotation.

Improving Day by Day

Overall great course. Greens are excellent, Fairways and tees are very very good. Course continues to improve. Holes #9, 10 and 11 are as tough as any 3 holes in the area. You can't just hit it anywhere on this course and score so bring your A game. Great value for the money.

Top notch

First time playing the course, layout is fantastic, greens were firm and rolled perfect. Back nine starts to get tight, perfect time for the wind to pick up. Will definitely be back. We finished in just over 3 hours

The Greens and The MOC!

After reading some of the other reviews I figured I’d clarify some thing’s. 1. The greens are awesome and rolling about an 11 and are sneaky fast. 2. What are the things you look for in a solid course(good greens, good fairways, and good tees)✅. 3. The Clubhouse and Grill are not open due to covid and trying to protect ALL Members and Guest. 4. They do have food being cooked outside and soda/beer/water is available in the Pro Shop. Finally, if it’s such a bad course why do some of the best golfers in the area call it HOME! Some of theses ratings are a JOKE.

If you like public golf, good greens and a great layout THE MOC is where you need to Play!

OK course but pricier than some in area

I have played this course before. Got a deal on GolfNow or price for playing golf at this course is more than I like to play. Did get rained out so got a raincheck. The Owner is not that friendly.

Avoid

I was shocked at how bad the course was and how run down the facilities were. I read the reviews prior to playing and they were probably written by friends of the owners.
