Open but challenging

Although the course is wide open it is still challenging, especially the greens. Lots of undulations on greens and challenging approaches.

Beautiful course

Lakewood National Commander course gets all the accolades but Piper course is right there! A beautiful course with a great layout. In great shape and greens were fast. I think it’s more challenging than Commander. I really enjoyed playing here. Practice facility was second to none. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Piper not as good as Commander

Piper starts with 4 very challenging golf holes, but after that, it’s just an okay golf course. The greens were in good shape, rolled true, and we look forward to returning.

Course is outstanding

Can’t ask for any more in a course except for a lower price. That being said if you haven’t played this course you have to. You won’t be disappointed

Felt likeConcrete base greens

Not a very aestherically pleasing course for sw florida. Greens were horribly fast. I like a challenge but this was ridiculous. Too many other choices. Ironically it is is lennar community. If you know anything about home builders- imagine a lennar golf course versus a toll Brothers course :)
