This course is literally a cow pasture. You are playing g off pig slop there right now, weeds everywhere including the sand traps, the greens and apron of greens. The Green’s are burnt out. Cart paths have pot holes everywhere. Cart path only. We had mud up to our knees and soaking wet shoes and socks. Impossible to play on.
We play all around the Venice (where we live every Sunday) area on the Big Summer golf card. We could only play 9 it was so bad, went in to get a refund on the back9, it will take a year or better to get this course back in condition, he would only give us a rain heck that expires at the End of October, no way and adamant about not giving us a refund.
A new owner is coming in tomorrow, I don’t know what the plans are for this course but it needs to be shut-down until it is playable, they have their work cut out for them. They need to inform the public about the condition before making tee times right now. Don’t waste your time, if I could give it a Zero I would.

Let me start by saying nice staff, nice clubhouse, beautiful patio and great layout. BUT the course conditions were one of the worst I have seen throughout Florida. Tee boxes were small, full of weeds and torn up. Had to tee off outside the box area. I know we need some rain but the greens need a lot of care- weedy, patchy and beat up. Please put some attention to the course now that the patio and dining area are looking good. Can’t recommend this course to anyone we know until something changes.

very disappointing round yesterday. positives -course layout and surroundings interesting and at times quite challenging . pace of play was quite good. finished in under 4 hours. staff friendly and helpful . but , the course is in very poor condition clearly has been very much neglected. fairways - limited grass this poor lies frequently many bare spots around greens. greens ran ok but in poor condition. clear there is no or minor irrigation taking place and same regarding overall landscape maintenance . bunkers horrible. little sand. packed down dirt or mud. tee boxes really poor . it’s a shame because course was interesting and we’d otherwise play it regularly. impression is that ownership has abandoned the course and making no material investment to improve it even to maintain what is there

What a pleasure to play here! We a Swiss couple on holiday try to play as many different courses to be able to compare. Wilderness is top on our list. Apparently gone semi-private we just drove by to inquire . Everybody was so friendly and welcoming and we were immediately given a tee time the following day. When we arrived the bags were immediately pur on the carts by such a nice person! Unthinkable in Switzerland! The course is perfect- we had a twosome in front and a kind of tournament group behind so it was a very relaxing play. And as a great bonus I saw my first quite large gator sleeping in the sun and waiting for his first Swiss-steak! I didn't do him the favor and let Him let my ball. Tomorrow we are going to play Wilderness again, and I'm looking forward to it! Thankyou team wilderness.

This is a semi private course that may require you be invited.
Several tee locations for all handicaps.
Really great driving range and practice greens with a very good club house.
Moderate prices.

I completely agree with MMS1956's review. I have played at this Club a few times, and in all cases they seem to have an affinity for understaffing. On two occasions I witnessed who appeared to be club members berating the guy in golf pro shop for making them wait to tee off.

While I completely understand - that as members - they should be able to tee off at their proper tee time, I also understand that if the club is going to allow the public to also make tee times, then they must be fair to everyone. Having a Marshall help with speed of play can keep people moving, and negate a domino effect of people teeing off late, but for some reason they never seem to have one. But in any case, it is not the fault of the guy at the pro shop desk and the members don't have to abuse him verbally.

This club needs real direction and needs to understand that cutting staff to try and save money can really be counter-productive, in that services suffer, and therefore the people patronizing the club suffer because they don't get what they pay for and don't get the service they deserve.

Impressed by the golf course with it's many lakes. Great looking gated community which was well kept. Liked the course from the championship tees. One hole was 600 yards long. Lots of birds and other wildlife. Are you kidding, I'm ready to move.

This is a beautiful and well maintained course. the greens are undulating and always quick and true. The course travels through a private development and the holes are varied and interesting. A good mix of water, trees and bunkers to provide an excellent test of any level of skill

A must play course in the area.
