“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Greens were soft and fairways well kept. Did not have to wait on one shot. Fairways are wide and the greens make it easy to score! Great place I will be back often!

“Don't let the "clubhouse" fool you!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012 via mobile

Yes, the economy affected this golf course, in that there really isn't a clubhouse per se (but in spite of what one reviewer said, you CAN get lunch there), but if care less about good food and more about GREAT GOLF, then this is the place for you. It is - IMHO - one of the best tracks in Brevard County. Multiple sets of tees make it fair for all players, the greens are wonderfully fast (but no worries - "amateur fast"), you get many options around the greens, and pace of play is usually pretty darn good.

The staff - Brant, Lisa and Lori - are wonderful, and have been there practically since the place opened.

Walkabout also boasts a superb golf teacher: Christa Teno, a former LPGA touring professional who also coaches the Women's Golf Team at Seminole State College - a team that finished 4th in the nation in their first year.

All I all - worth the trip, and when that clubhouse does get built - look out!

“What's Up With Walkabout?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Walkabout could go from average to great once the building resumes in that area. According to the folks at www.eatdrinkgolfdaytona.com it opened right at the beginning of the economic implosion and they cut back on everything. The clubhouse is a modular with mostly candy and chips. You won't get lunch here. Many of the teeing grounds and fairways still show the sod lines from when the turf was first put in. However, the layout is challenging and fair. The staff was nice to us but it's really tough to reconcile the rules listed on their website with the actual facility. You get this feeling that you're going to go to some palacial place but it still feels like a muni.

“Watch out for what they don't tell you up front.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012 via mobile

Great golf course. One of the better layouts in Brevard County, FL. The course could use some $$$ to complete what has been left undone since the housing bust. The Pro Shop staff could use some lessons on enhancing customer relations. In any given year, I play over 65 courses around the USA and I have never encountered a course that charged you for potable water and ice. Be careful to ask to be fully briefed on what was expected by their staff.
