“Neat little course, not a lot of imagination”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I've played this course a couple of times. The real fun in playing this course is encountering the wildlife; snakes, turtles, and alligators are the highlight of this place. The golf course is average. Just a plain Jane 18 hole course. Not a lot of imagination in the layout. It is your normal municipal course. The benefits are the price; it has been way more affordable than most of the other resort courses in the area. If you play golf only on vacation and you're on a budget, this is a great place to get a golf fix. If you're a more advanced player and don't mind spending a pretty penny, look up some other courses.
Benefits: Cheap, lots of nature to see, and a non-challenging layout
Cons: Cheap, sometimes the nature you see wants to eat you, and it's a non challenging layout.
Basically, it all depends on what you like in a golf course. But to sum up, if you're wanting a resort course, go elsewhere.

“Practice range”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

$5 for a large bucket of balls. Nice grass practice tee hitting area. Plenty wide with various distance flags.

“Brown and unattractive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Played here at end of March 2013. Very unattractive course. Poorly maintained. Better off paying a bit more and playing a real course. This was a mistake.

“Nice course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Small pro shop but course is fun to play. Greens a bit slow compared to other courses in the area, so be prepared!

“Should have told us it had just been aerated!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Not sure we would have played had we been told the course had recently been aerated! They should have at least told us. It definately cost us some strokes as we lost distances on the rolls we didn't get. This is one of the cheapest courses in the area and usually not a bad course. Will probaby give it another try before we head back north next month.
