We played this golf course a week before Christmas. it is one of the best Florida layouts we played but absolutely the worst condition. The tees and fairways are quite overrun with crabgrass. You can find a spot on most fairways to move your ball to, but you will almost always move your ball. The greens is very good for... More

The course was in pretty poor shape except for the greens which were in good shape. The fairways looked like a cow pasture with bare spots and patches. Even foe the $28 rate I would skip it.

First, I want to clarify, I'm not a member. I was invited to attend an event with a local chamber. At the event, food was served. So this isn't the clubhouse I'm talking about, it's the main eating area they provide for banquets, etc. I'm going to review the food. I think I've tasted better food at a hospital. The... More

Read the harsh reviews and decided to try binks anyway since i live close by. Got a super great rate playing in the morning. I havent picked up clubs in two years, but i did play a lot back then, and on some outstanding courses ... and not some not so good ones. Binks is probably right in the middle.... More

This once beautiful and challenging course has seen hard times...every aspect of the golf course was in bad shape...after recently playing the course.again out of curiosity I was pleasantly surprised to see some definite signs of improvement. The greens were decent compared to what they used to be although very slow..and the fairways and tee boxes showed improvement so that... More

I played there for the first time and was impressed, at first, by the good condition of the buildings. However once inside things started downhill. The musty mildew odor was quite strong and no way to greet members, or guests. The course itself is in bad shape. The fairways have more weeds than grass and the greens are in poor... More

There was time when this was my go to golf course here in Wellington, with its challenging layout and previously well maintained course, it was a real golf deal for the $40 green fee. Unfortunately the good times are clearly in the rearview mirror. The course is incredibly poorly kept, from sandy and patchy tee boxes to overgrown burnt greens,... More

Nice Golf course in Wellington….lots of tight fairways and landscaped beautifully ! Course has been in town for well over 20 years , but always fun !!The 18th is my favorite cause if you make the green everyone in the clubhouse can see your shot …over water to a tight green !!!
