“Average-Average plus: Cypress & Oaks course Club Link reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We are Club Link members so decided to try out both these courses this week. We played Cypress after 1:30 on Saturday. Staff in club house were helpful getting us set up with rentals and fixing a reservation error. Cypress was in pretty good condition. Typical florida golf course....flat and surrounded by lots of condos.
The Cypress course was pretty narrow so wasn't my husband`s favorite. It didn't have much water either so nothing very different about the holes. Was a bit annoyed that we never saw a Marshall and the game took well over 4.5 hours to play. On the ffront nine, there were two twosomes that should have joined together but didn't. One twosome got off after the 1st nine so things sped up a bit. Good condition fairways and greens.
On Monday am, at 8:15 am we played the Oaks. Much nicer in our our opinion. Fairways were larger, condos set further back, more water on the holes but nothing intimidating. We were done in 3.5 hours...excellent time. It was a good start to our first "rusty" games of the season.
Note: We played Heron Bay on the Friday, 1st round...and it was in really poor shape. They have not really done much to improve it since we last played it 2 years ago. If you don`t know...it also has over 100 sand traps...so if that isn`t your thing, think twice!!
Don`t think I will ever book that one again. Conditions were really below average, especially when the courses at Palmaire were in much better condition so "weather", "drought" is not an excuse. Our friends also played the new Club Link course addidtion, Eagle Trace...and said it was very nice, the nicest of all the ones we played. Also...very good pace of play. The expect you to play under 4 hours.

“Fore!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We played three times in a week at this course, primarily because we were right next door and enjoyed a significant discount through the Wyndham Palm Aire Resort. Carts not allowed into the parking lot, so you pretty much have to use the club employee to take your clubs and set up your cart, which I, personally, dislike. The starter was pleasant and efficient all 3x, and we actually went off early. The course is challenging but not so difficult that you feel discouraged. We played with another twosome on each occasion, and finished in 4 hours. The course was in good shape, and we were not bothered by mowers or groundskeepers ever, so I don't know when they did their groominng!
