There are new owners and apparently they are working on the course. There was noone out there and perhaps if they dropped prices ($90) they would have some cash flow. Rough wasnt cut and tee boxes were in bad shape.

Very good lay out harder than it looks on the cards. Think twice before playing from the blue, especially if it'windy. We played it for $90 and it worth it.

I played this course last year, twice here, twice at the dunes and once in Fort Myers. The reviews on trip adviser almost kept my wife and I from even trying it. I'm glad we did, it is a better track than the Dubes, however the upkeep was terrible. I was glad to hear it was under new ownership, I expected better and was not dissapointed. Drew, Ed and Gene made me feel like I was playing at a private club. You could already see the improvements on the short time they have owned it. The wildlife is abundant, gators eagles, snakes and other wildlife were around everyday. Don't take my word for it, check it out yourself!

Very disappointing. Paid almost $100 for a round and had to quit early. Six hours through 14 holes as the course was full of retirees and beginners. There was a backup on ten of three threesomes of women with a twosome in the fairway and another foursome on the green all at the same time. The greens were part sand and very long. Horrible conditions.
