Worth playing

Course layout was good. Fairly wide fairways. Course condition was not great. A lot of weeds and moistures of grasses with bare spots. Has a lot of potential. Friendly staff. Course was not crowded and I was able to play well under 4 hours.

Nice course

Nice wide fairways and not a lot of water. Greens were in pretty good condition. Tee boxes needed to be mowed, but overall I liked the course and it's condition.

Bargain price

Course improvements seem ongoing but it still needs some work on fairways and some greens.. but $20 for 18 holes and cart is a real bargain

Playable

Enjoyed the layout and the staff was super friendly. Course still needs some work and will get there there with some effort. We really enjoyed our time there and would definitely play again in the future. You have to play the elements and conditions, the conditions just happen to be on the rough side right now but the price makes up for it.

Working on it

The course layout is challenging at times and friendly at others. Not super challenging overall but definitely some good holes.. The course itself is under reseeding so you have to take that in consideration right now. Greens are ok for just being plugged and reseeded, still a bit bumpy but if you role it online it stays for the most part. We got a deal for $18 each with a cart so definitely worth the money and the staff were all super friendly. If you’re out to just have a good time the course is great! If you’re looking for a pristine golf course at a cheap price, spend the money and play a high dollar course, this isn’t the course for you. We would definitely come back especially at this price point. I’ve played worse shape courses for more and better for less but we’re here on vacation and really enjoyed it. They have 2 shortened holes due to fairways being worked on, we looked at them as easy par/birdie holes. There are a lot of executive courses around and I would much rather play a regulation course that needs some work like this for the same price you can play an executive course is perfect shape, just my opinion….

Not at this time

Previously this course was in great shape and definitely 4-5 stars but the lack of rain has turned this course into a majority of the holes dry dirt. 2 holes have been reduced to par 3’s because the fairways are unplayable. Greens are messy with different weeds growing in the grass which wasn’t cut recently and have been sanded and punched. Not at this time is the best I can say.

Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve, and we are working towards getting things up to par. Thank you for playing Port Charlotte Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
