Hidden gem

This course is one of six golfing options that PGA national has to offer, with the exception that this one is not on the same premises as the other five. So far I've played in 4 out of the 6 courses, and I would rank them in the following order: 1) Champ, 2) Palmer, 3) Estates (real close to 2nd place with Palmer) and 4) Fazio (just meh). On to the review...This course would tie with Palmer if it shared the same facilities. The course is in excellent condition and has great practice facilities with a driving range and chipping and putting greens. Practice balls are included with the green fee. The pace of play was phenomenal, I got the rare and lucky chance to play by myself which made the round soooo much better than being paired with a bunch of randos. The course is in excellent shape tee to green. The greens rolled pretty fast and true, and are deceivingly tricky. Some of the holes, especially the signature holes were quite difficult, so you must bring your A-game. Playing from the whites, especially for not a long hitter like me, presented itself to be difficult enough. Although the course plays tough, it also plays fair, unlike the champ which is just punishing is some holes (such as the bear trap). I can't wait to return and try to beat my 89, which was not easy to get.

Pricy

The course was in average condition and the layout was fine, I thought that the course was priced too high for for the experience.

Good value

The course is away from the PGA resort We we’re able to play as a two and the pace was excellent. The course is in good shape and the greens were firm. Good value for the money

Nice greens but don’t think I’d play again

Didn’t really see the appeal for the price. Greens were in good shape and rolled true. Perhaps I would have enjoyed the course more during the winter when the course was drier. (Drives in the fairway we’re plugging never to be seen again.)

Amenities on the course were non existent. No range either.

Really soggy...cart path only

Decent layout forced carries from the blue tees can be nervous with hurting winds...

Not Worth It

Other courses are more lush and maintained in Florida for half the price. Pace of play is SLOW. No one regulates this. Amenities scarce which is surprising for the cost and the affiliation.
