How does this have over 4 stars?

This is par 3 course with a few short 4’s sprinkled in. 4000 from the tips. There isn’t a driving range, there’s a hitting mat on a tennis court with a net. There’s no beverage cart. They sold me a tee time in the middle of a retirement league shotgun start. Bring your oxygen tanks.

Bring your best iron game.

Terra Ceia was a blast, but bring your a game. The fairways are tight and the greens are postage stamp small! Overall I really enjoyed this track and the staff was super friendly. I also enjoyed (what I assume) the practice hole that runs parallel to 18. It allowed me to rally dial in my 100yrd in prior to playing. I’ll definitely come back as it was a true test for my iron game playing from the tips! It will also hold a special value in my heart as I broke into the single digit handicap at this course!

Nice, fun course. I thought I was getting a great deal on GolfNow but didn’t know it was a par 62. Paid about the going rate. Other than that, it was good.

Best Executive Course

This course was the most challenging, fun and difficult executive golf course I've ever played. The course layout was spectacular, the greens were fast and rolled true and i've never seen so much water on an executive course which made it challenging and fun. I had an extremely great time and will be back to play there again soon. I will also tell my fellow golf buddies that they have to check out this course. I usually prefer playing regulation courses but for the money, this is a must play.

Monday round

Course was in the best shape ever
Greens were a bit slow but considering all the rain, they probably need a cut
Owner should be commended on the work he has done to improve the conditions and overall look of the property

Always fun

This is my first time here in about a year. Greens were lush but in need of a trim. Took a couple of holes to reset my pace. Tee boxes were excellent and the fairways were good. I always enjoy this course. It's where I took my lessons from Jacques, the owner, It slipped a bit a couple of years ago but it's great to see they have brought the course back.

Great short course.

I love the layout of this course. It would have been nice to know that they had just aerated and sanded (way too much) the greens. It was like hitting to and putting at the beach. I want to come back when the course is in better condition because the layout is great!

Good value

Lots of par 3s, but was good to work my short game. Fairways were good and challenge with a bit higher grass. Greens were okay overall, but high grass made putting a little more challenging. Good day overall.

Hidden gem

Course is in really good shape. The great work of their new grounds keeper is really showing. Greens are in super shape for this time of year and most tee boxes and fairways have good grass coverage. Bring balls - water on 15 holes. Fun challenging little course.
