When you hear you are about to play a course designed by the great Jack Niclaus which acording to the guy in the pro shop is ranked Number 38, (he never did explain if that was no 38 in Florida, the US or the World) you would be for forgiven for having high expectations, especially when a two ball with...

What a great layout, went here instead of traviso bay which we'd played before. This was a better choice. All played from different tees which made for a fun but challenging game . Comments about greens , slopes etc are all accurate, it's tough , but playable. condition was not top drawer, presume out of season rather than endemic. Staff... More

I really liked the course. I was paired with three members who showed me around. There was not a single bad hole on the course, even though they missed a postcard hole that you will always remember. The green areas were difficult and with a new putter and unfamiliar with Bermuda grass - my short game was not how it... More

The title of my review says it all, this place is amazing. Greens roll true, fairways are in great shape, the layout is good, the staff are friendly. It's a must play in the area especially if you get a good rate on the course. If I had to complain about something it would be that the prices at the... More

Just played Old Corkscrew for the first time last week and I am still marveling at the experience. Let me start off with the fact that I am a fairly high handicap player and I was totally blown away by the difficulty on some holes, but this may have been the best overall golf experience I have ever had. The... More

I really enjoyed my round at Old Corkscrew but had to really think my way around the course. The condition of the fairways and greens was phenomenal and there were a full range of tee options to match yardage to skill level. However, as many have noted this is a very tough track. Each hole is typified with reachable traps... More

If you are not an "A" player, plan on having a very tough day. One of the members told me while discussing the course at the range, that, "Jack hadn't got 'lucky' for a while before designing this course". If you cannot hit a high towering shot to the correct corner of the green, you will be launched into a... More

Very delighted with our round at Olde Corkscrew. We had heard it was very difficult, but we didn't find it any more difficult than most other courses down in Florida. The staff was very accomodating and laid back, the pace was nice, we saw the beverage cart 3 times per nine and when we got done we could still get... More

There are multiple tee boxes for good reason. This course is considered one of the hardest of not the most difficult in the area. There are many high level tournaments played here. Probably one of the best public courses in the country.
