The positives are that the two principal courses: Pine Barrens (PB) and Rolling Oaks (RO) are first rate Courses.
PB is hyped as the better of the two but my wife and I enjoyed RO more.
The scenery is fantastic and every time we've played the courses have been in great condition.
I don't think that the venue in its totality lives up to its billing, as there are other great (better?) experiences/courses but it's still impressive.
Lake Jovita in Tampa Bay area, is by way of example pretty special.
You can get some good deals especially if you are prepared to play after say 11.00am and register on-line.
The complex also has a driving range and a neat short course (which was fun).
The downsides are it's popularity which means that almost any time you go there it's heaving.
It also means that if you're a two ball you will be teamed up with a random couple.
This happens but the last we played we had a bad experience which spoiled our enjoyment.
The facilities aren't up to its hype.
The restaurant is OK at best.
The Service is a bit hit and miss but I have some empathy with them as I think they try and pack the course out (although I'm sure that they would deny this!).
However I did find the Marshalls, in general, helpful.
In summary, and it's a hike to get there, it well worth the trip.
We've had some wonderful times and will go back but in low season.
