“Improved since last review ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

I played as a single on a Wednesday afternoon and paid $32 for 18 on the south course, with range balls. Staff was friendly, course was very nice with greens being a 8/10 but unbelievably fast! The putting green was unplayable due to sanding and punch holes. Overall it gets a 8/10 with extra credit to the low rate.

We stayed in the villas and all 24 of us had a marvelous time. The courses were in great shape, accommodations were convenient and clean. Staff was very helpful. The meal we had on Sunday was delicious. Cannot wait to return again with the Ladies next year, or another couple this fall.

I reserved a Tee time on Golfnow 24 hours in advance and for $35 the deal advertised free range balls and nothing about aerification. When I arrived an hour and a half early, the clerk told me the range closed early and would not reopen. My buddy and I always require warming up on the range and arrived early for that sole purpose. The clerk was apologetic but offered no solution to our problem at first. Before we drove off to the first tee, he gave us two coupons for $30/Rd. The course was recently aerified and Golfnow had no warning, which they usually do when courses aerate. The beverage cart girl was also MIA and i didnt see her once. Other than that, layout was great, good conditions except for punched/ sanded greens.

We had a great time. The villas were extremely spacious and clean. Loved the service that Sharon offered. Great customer service. Everything was painless and we definitely will consider going back soon. Golf was great too.

Room Tip: They are all identical pretty much

We arrived on Wednesday and the check in was painless. The 4 condos on the 18th fairway of the south course were perfect for 16 guys playing 126 holes of golf in 4 days were perfect. The staff was very accomodating, quick to load up our bags and carts - everyone was very pleasent. The buffet breakfasts and lunches were fantastic - great food!! The south course is a great layout - really loved it. Excellent finishing holes - #9 and #18. Great par 5's. The greens are especially good - true and fast. Rarely are greens in Florida very good and these were a pleasant suprise. The north course is average at best: trees in the middle of the fairways on 2 holes and a rather boring layout. The condition of the north course was average at best. Beverage carts were very scarce which was a bit disappointing. Lake Jovita has an older retirement feel - moreso than the previous resorts we have visited.
To summarize, our trip was great and we look forward to coming back - at least next year. The draw to come back is directly related to the golf - quick play, good courses, and great greens. If they get some more beverage carts on the course we may be back for more than just next year!

Room Tip: If you are there to golf - request a condo on the south course 18th fairway.

Not so friendly staff, first time playing the 2 courses in one day (36 holes). No staff at the end of first round to direct us to 1 st hole on north course. Only 2 sandwiches in snack bar@ 12:30. No drinking water on 1st 14 holes, no ball washer on the entire 18 holes, no cart person on the course, really bad experience. Definitely will not include this course in our next roration.

We spent two great days in one of the villa's...not golfer's but it was nice to sit by the lake in out screened porch and have almost total silence except for an occasional bird. The villa's have 4 queen beds and two very, very nice baths and comes with your own golf cart. We were visiting our daughter at Saint Leo's right next door but most people come here to play golf. We will hopefully come back in May..

Room Tip: We stayed in a villa overlooking the lake and golf course..pricey
