TOOOOOOOOOOOO SLOWWWWWWWWWWWW
Dec 2020
Last time I tried to play there, there were three foursomes on the first hole ( 1 on the green, 1 on the fairway, and 1 standing in the tee box), 2 more waiting alongside the tee box, and 3 more on the practice green waiting to tee off. That was after waiting nearly 20 minutes for a cart. My son and I threw our clubs back into the car and went how, eating the greens fees - no refunds or raincheck because we booked on line. They stagger start times by only 7 minutes. Since the average foursome of amateurs takes closer to 12 - 15 minutes per hole, plan on 4 1/2 - 5 hours to complete a round.

We booked a tee time here specifically to see Chubby the alligator. He didn't show up! So disappointed. But, we had beautiful weather and the course was nice enough. We had a good time.

Very poor condition for the price.
Mar 2020
The course was in very dry condition. Fairways were dry and hard, not grassy. Greens wee in poor shape. The old hole spots were visible all over and were fron months back. Greens had not been watered and were hard and fast. Bunkers were not maintained and many did not have rakes.I was embarassed to bring friends there. It is not as nice as in the past.Do not waste your $$$. It was $44 if booked on line and we paid. $64 when we booked it by phone.

Poor condition

The course is in poor shape! Not worth the $65.00 they are charging. The greens are terrible and the tee boxes are bare.

Slow play means no play
Feb 2020
It took us three hours to play nine holes yesterday. After finishing the ninth we decided that we were not going to play another nine at the same pace. When I returned the cart the gentleman asks me how my round went and I told him I would not be back. So funny that they rush you to the first tee to go and then you sit for ten minutes between every shot.

Why can't people tell the truth about this place?
Feb 2020
I read all kinds of 4 and 5 star reviews on this course. The truth is, it is a muni track in need of maintenance. I was disappointed. The fairways, rough and bunkers were in less than average condition and in need of attention. I will say, the greens were decent and we did see a big gator. It is totally absurd to call this place fabulous or very very good. Not even close. If you are looking to spend some of your precious time off playing some golf, I suggest going elsewhere. I won't go back.

A bit disappointed
Mar 2019 • Friends
We played here twice while on vacation in the area. It was the most expensive course we played and might have been the worst overall experience. The course is in ok condition but nothing special. We played on a Saturday and when we arrived the first tee was already backed up. We were a bit late getting off but then waited for every shot. On most holes we had finished and arrived at the next tee before the group in front of us had teed off. It made for a slow round but being Saturday and perfect weather we made allowance and returned on Tuesday. It was the exact same experience. I then saw a sign that said Cup if water now 50 cents.
Not the best customer service to my way of thinking and this coming from somebody who has never asked for a glass of water at a golf course. Too many courses around so I won’t be back.

Part of our February hiatus from the northern weather.This course is in good shape, lynx style design with good ,fast greens.Home of the 11’ alligator and a lot of water but well worth the visit,under $50 to play.

Booked a tee time on line. When we showed up, we were told that the front 9 were closed and we would have to play the back 9 twice (this fact was not mentioned on the website). Okay, we understood things like this can happen. We were told the back 9 was in good shape and there were very few people on the course. This was total BS.... the back 9 was worse than playing in a pasture with high rough, mud everywhere and cart tracks all over the course. Plus, since everyone was now playing the back 9 twice, it was crowded and extremely slow. Did not see a Marshall one time to speed up play from the groups in front of our foursome. It took over 4 hours to play and the overall conditions were pathetic. We are Year around residents and have played this course many times. Guaranteed we will not be back for a very long time until they get this course back to any semblance of a golf course. They should have payed us to play this mud hole of a course. From the tees to the greens, the back 9 was in horrible shape. Save yourself some money and frustration and find another course for the foreseeable future.
