There are 3 great nines at University Park. Any combination is a winner. Very nice restaurant. Try the Gazpacho!! Negatives are the bad attitude of the starters and pace of play. Can be very slow!

I have been in University Park for the 10th time in eleven years ... stayed there for a week this time and played 6 rounds of golf. As always, the course was in a perfect shape and we enjoyed the golf very much. Having played the Blue Monster in Miami a day later, I had to admit that the greens... More

The course is always in good shape! They were having an afternoon outing so anyone wanting to play that day had to play a shotgun start at 8:30. Everything went smooth, no rushing you to finish. The staff was awesome getting everyone out on the course & ready to start on time.

played in fourballs with five other groups pace of play was good . The course and greens in good order despite the rain. The only gripe being one of the cart boys being over enthusiastic to get tips at the end of the round felt rushed to clear the cart. This is the time articles are left in the cart... More

Beyond the look out for the " crabby" starter. I totally agree with some other reviewers. Sure it was early and we were first off, but if you don't like the job get one you are not dealing with people. Also the driving range does not open until 8 am he told us rather abruptly and we had a 7:37... More

This course was beautiful! The course is very challenging, but a lot of fun. Thanks to the two we were paired up with, we knew what to expect. We would go back for sure. Summer is a good time to go because the rates are better.

Very welcoming Club from first entering the security gate , bag drop area , pro shop to check in and restaurant area. Course very challenging but fair with reasonably wide fairways. Great course with usual excellent US hospitality .
