Picture shows bare fairways, with many spots on green missing grass. I played yesterday (August 2nd) and it has rained regularly. Mud everywhere with cart tracks where many were stuck. Fairways in terrible condition. Greens just air-rated which was ok but too many bare spots...More

We were able to get two tee times during Christmas week. The staff was friendly. The carts were great. This was a very nice municipal course. Our municipal course aren't quite as nice back home up North. We enjoyed the wildlife as we golfed.

This place has been putting in the work! Greens were fixed, new tee boxes, weeds killed and new carts.

fairways are poor, only half grassed, in some place like playing from a bunker. At least 1/3 of the greens had bare lumpy areas. The sewage farm on the back 9, beyond the control of the club, did not add to the enjoyment. Overall a...More

After the previous reviews, I was expecting a course in a terrible condition. The layout of this course and degree of difficulty is excellent. Yes they have had some problems with scandalous irrigation problems but honestly, it's getting back and deserves a look. The tees...More

We were undecided about playing this course because of the reviews, but there were no up dated reviews. Deciding that it was cheap for Florida and it kept our swing going we thought it was worth an afternoon for $30. Our expectations therefore were not...More

Yes, improvements have been made. The greens seem to have 100% coverage and are actually rolling nicely now. Some of the tee boxes are still sparse as of the last time I played there a couple weeks ago. My partner and I... More
