After not having played this course for a couple of years, we were disapponted to see what has become of what used to be an enjoyable experience. After the management shakeup several years ago, there was an upsurge in the overall quality, but this seems to have been the result of the "new broom sweeping clean." The once comfortable general...

We had a tee time for 4 and there was a chance of rain. We were able to play approx. 7 holes and it started to sprinkle. As we played it rained much harder and we rushed to finish 9 and it also began to thunder and lightning. We asked for a rain check for 9 holes and were refused.... More

We played the American course and had a lot of fun and a really good time. The course is well prepared, people are friendly, if you start early in the morning, you can even walk it (we did it on a cart which was due to the heat a good idea). It's very affordable and I recommend to book your... More

This county course is in the best shape that it has been in the past 4 years, but still not very good. There are bald patches in the fairways and on some of the greens. The greens are a moderate speed and bumpy. For $52 (morning in season) there are far better courses in the area. The pro shop staff... More

The only good thing about this place is the greens, fairways are in poor shape,the rest of the place is terrible and the golf staff could care less about you as a person, just a number. Fairways suck, behind one tee book you can see they had just rimmed the tress back, and laying just off the cart path was... More

Our group of guys decided to try this location. The January rates are over 50$ which is high for the value you receive and quality of the course. The course condition is ok, with decent fairway and rough grass. Most greens are undulating and average size. They are weed free and in good shape. They are slow and inconsistent from... More

If the price of green fees is of primary concern, this course is a reasonable option for you. Same goes for those who seldom play or are just learning to play. Otherwise, there are so many better courses to chose from in the area that this course is not worth your time.

Having played many golf courses in Florida and golf around the world this is the worst golf course I have ever played. It completely lacked any of the fun, style, beauty and excitement of the usual Florida golfing experience and instead left us feeling gutted, desperate to leave and frustrated with having chosen to play this 'course'. I use the... More

A couple of years ago my daughter, at the time age nine, decided she wanted to give golf a try. We were at home in LBK for a summer visit. We headed over to play the executive course. I had not had my clubs out in over 1o years. We hacked our way around the executive course but decided we... More
