Course was in pretty good shape although greens are very slow. Lunch was good at the grill.
Range balls are horrible and not part of round. Greens are furry but they have grass on them. Saw cart girl 1x in 18 holes. Otherwise what was expected for $60

This was a practice rouond for an upcoming tournament. As a Senior I do not usually play for these prices.
Enjoyed the course. Watch our for hole #17!
The one "fault" I had with our round of golf, was that the group immediately before us consisted of 5 players and as a 5 player group they played in a fashion and at a pace of play that was discourteous to those of us behind. I have played behind five-somes before who were well cognizant of their pace of play. They played ready golf, and their overall pace of play was on a par with a typical foursome. This group showed none of that courtesy.
Played this course on a great day. Granted the course just took a hit from a winter storm that significantly damaged a lot of great courses, however the tee boxes were beat up. Cart paths could use some work especially around the bridges, eventually they will deteriorate their golf carts. The fairway has minimal fluff and are compacted, the typical st. Augustine home grass is encroaching onto the course in many areas. There were areas under low hanging trees that were dry and bare. The lakes were mucky and some were smelly, and the turtle population is destroying the habitats for enrichment. The "rough" is just an assortment of weeds and invasive species. Now the positives of the course are the actual layout is fantastic, and its sad to see a course that has so much potential in such a great area let go. I found the course difficult but sometimes forgiving, I found a lot of my shots hindered by the conditions of the fairways and "rough". Now the greens in my opinion were great, surprisingly they had smoothness and enabled for some backspin. They were dry and bare in some areas, but understandably so due to the past winter storm. Sand traps were great, but not raked either by staff or players not sure. They could use some new sand and a fluff. Other than that I would play again especially if I saw some money put into restoring the course this summer.
