Don’t waste your money

Tee boxes are bad shape the fairways are bare in some spots and mud balls just about every hole. Not to mention the greens are bad shape as well. Do yourself a favor a go play elsewhere

Sad shape for a country club golf course

The staff was friendly and I liked the layout of the course. That being said, there was various things that made this course undesirable:

Driving range: Hit off the grass style, except where the ropes for practice were set it was mostly dirt, not grass. Plenty of grass on the practice range; perhaps they forgot to move the ropes?

Course Water: There were four water stations
On the course. None of them had water.

Beverage Cart: we were told there was a beverage cart on the course. In the 4.5 hours of play we never saw the cart come by (see Player management below for more on play time).

Bathrooms: only one bathroom on the course (hole 8).

Fairways: Lots of dead areas. Some areas we had to move our balls upwards of 20 feet to find grass to hit from

Tee Boxes: more dirt and sand than grass for most of the boxes. Also not very level. On the fifth hole there were no marks to know where to hit from. They were not even along side the box like you find when the tee box has been mowed.

Green side bunkers: No rakes for the bunkers. No rakes on the carts. Some bunkers had grass growing up thru the sand.

Greens: They were unevenly cut. The mower used three cutting blades (which is normal); however, not all three blades were at the same height. The difference wasn’t much, but when you are putting things like this (or a recently punched green) can throw off your roll . ADDITIOANLLY: there was some damaged areas on the greens apparently from disease. This necessitated moving the ball either from these damages areas or moving your ball so you didn’t have to roll they then.

Player Management: No course marshal or starting marshal. Because this course is situated in a country club, they had a wedding there that had the wedding party out next to the first hole fairway. Because of this, they were having players during this time start at the tenth tee box. This created a backlog and slowed the pace of play down.

OVERALL: This course has potential. For Florida, it had the most elevation changes if any course I have played. However, the conditions noted above need to be addressed to bring this course up to the decent level of play.

Pictures. When trying to upload a picture of the fairways from my iPhone, I received a warning that my file extension was not compatible.

Course Has Seen Its Best Days

I agree with the other reviewers - this course has seen better days and seems to be going the way of other "older" courses that lack the funding to give playing facilitiies the proper care to keep golfers coming back.

We did have fun, though, and caution others not to expect much in the way of manicured tees, fairways, greens and cartpaths.

The clubhouse, however, was bustling with activity in the middle of a Thursday as women's groups were finishing their rounds and heading for the dining factility.

Another thing we noticed was the attention youth were getting. As we were finishing our round there seemed to be a high school tournament in its early states with lots of parents in attendance. Good for the game and for the course. I wish them both good luck!

Goat ranch!

Horrible conditions. Tee boxes are sand pits. Fairways are dirt and weeds. Greens are bumpy and slow and beaten. Worst course I've played in Florida. Will not go back. Staff was friendly, though.

Great layout - bad conditions

I would imagine this was a great course at one time. Layout really cool and some interesting holes. However it is in bad shape- greens, tees and fairways need desperate help. If fixed I would be back, but not under these conditions. If in Titusville, play Great Outdoors (I would 7 days a week and twice on Sundays) - WAY better condition

$25 is a great price, but course was not in good shape

I have played La Cita many times, but those were played in the fall and spring. The condition of the course in the summer was not good - a few tee boxes were dirt, greens hadn't been cut and were slow, and it was tough to tell the difference between the fairways and first cut and rough.

Meh

Love this layout. It can be a tough course, especially in the wind.
Tee boxes were rough, but hey, the ball is on sa tee so...
Fairways were patchy. Greens were really slow and seversl had dead spots or repair areas.
All in all it was fun and challenging but I've seen it in better condition. Still, for the Hot Deal rate it was a good deal.

NICE COURSE WITH A GREAT LAYOUT

This golf course is a pleasure to play with a little of everything in the layout to keep you on your toes. Doglegs, elevation changes, and greens over water come into play. All of the staff are really friendly and accommodating. They recently acquired new golf carts. The price range for green fees are some of the best on the Space Coast and a value compared to others.

Exceptional Pace of Play

Always a fun course to play. Course conditions are average and some areas need attention. There are better courses in Brevard County, but this is a good value course with a difficult back nine. Never disappointed with LaCita.

Needs work

Fun layout and friendly staff but the course has seen better days . Bare fairways and not a lot of mowing going on . Enjoyed the interesting round but won’t make the 60 mile drive to play again anytime soon ...that said if I lived closer and it was a hot deal , I might consider.
