I Love Misty Creek

Tough course but plays well for shot makers like me, or bombers like my buddies. Always see tons of wildlife (it's a nature preserve). An 'old Florida' course at it's best.
Greens in great shape!
You can see by my picture the hazards can be exceptionally tough! Hole #1

Amazing Wildlife

Course was swampy, thin grass in fairways and sanded greens, but the layout is fun. No houses in play, lots of wildlife and extremely friendly staff. Priced fairly on Golfnow.

What a pleasure

Course is in great shape. Go check it out for yourself. Personally would of liked to see the greens run a little faster but I am probably in the minority on that.

Nice layout but a little pricey

Super friendly staff, nice greens, otherwise average conditions. Some tricky and interesting holes. Overall a fun place to play but a bit pricey.

Slow greens, crabgrass fairways and poor drainage.

Staff was nice, but other than that, not worth $50 to play there.

Lost a ball on #9 fairway. Cleared the lake, but landed in a deep puddle next to it.

Stay Away

I can play this course before but the condition of it now was horrendous. We should have suspected that when we pulled in the parking lot and only three cars were there. The entire course needs to be completely redone. I hope to invest the money because it used to be a wonderful course

Misty Creek

Only my second time to play this course. It was in great shape the last time I played it probably 18 months ago. This time it had several holes under repair and had moved two or three tees much closer due to resodding the tee boxes. Holes 6 & 8 were effectively changed from a 4 & 5 par to a par 3 and a very short par 4. The course was very wet in several places and grass was high. Greens were fairly slow today. Very few people were on the course today. When the tee areas are repaired this is a really nice course and fine layout. I would recommend it.

Great Course

Beautiful course, great layout. I really enjoyed it for the second time. There was some construction on a couple holes, but overall a great place to play.

Going downhill

I've played this course a couple times 2 years ago and it was a wonderfully conditioned course with firm, fast and smooth greens. Now it is a mess. Greens are very poor condition (patchy sandy areas, extremely long and slow). Fairways and tees also are in poor condition, and much of the rough has not been mowed in weeks. Very sad, as this used to be one of my favorite courses and a great layout, but it has really been neglected the past couple of years.

The club seems to be working to get course back in playing condition.
Few holes tee boxes are 100 yards in front of white/blues
Greens are poor
Tee boxes are for most part in poor condition
Fairways average
Like the layout
But, a lot of work to be done!

Nice Value

The course is under repair on a few holes and coming along great! They advised us in the pro shop when we arrived!
The staff was friendly and gave directions on how move around the repairs being made!
Fairways and Greens in good shape with a few still being repaired moved the ball to a similar putt and enjoyed the day!

It was nothing like some reviews I read from from another review posted! Things were easy to make a decision on how to navigate the work being done and dodging the sprinklers!

A great value and wildlife plenty on the back 9!

Do better.

Course at certain times is okay but today it was in horrible shape. Driving range was shut down. The sprinkler system was being worked on and having new wires ran throughout the entire course so along with playing around the crews and their trenches, the sprinklers would just randomly turn on which turned out to be quite the surprise when you’re teeing off or driving by and get soaked. There were 2 holes where the tee boxes were moved for maintenance to a location where they were all together black through white, back to back to back. The tee box locations were so close to the green it turned a par 5 into a par 3, and one was completely under water. Several of the greens I would consider borderline lost and mostly sand. Greens had also just been punched so it made putting quite the challenge. The 18th hole, the most prized hole on golf courses had trimmings dumped in piles all over that looked to have had been there for quite some time. I have been to this course plenty of times over the years and it’s usually a really nice course and well worth the money but not today. I don’t get how you can justify charging full price for a half maintained course. All in all I won’t be back for a while after today. I hope it’s better next time.
