Beautiful Courses and Facility
We played the Hills course and it was fabulous. Found an online deal for the middle of a hot July day. Just bring a cold towel for the cooler. Water jugs on the course. Snack bar and halfway house had plenty of drinks. Had a beer and appetizers in the bar after the round.
Staff was great. Unload for you at the bag drop and help get you ready, along with club cleaning at the end (and they'd probably like a tip).
The course was very well manicured. Loved that we were not next to other holes and saw only a few groups. Each hole has it's own feel and necessary shot selection shaping.
Tee boxes mostly level and shot lines get harder as you back up and increase distance. Some fairly reasonable forced carries here.
Fairways were like carpet! The rough didn't seem too deep or bad, until you got in it. That grass is tough.
Greens were sandy, hard, and fast. Left very few ball marks. And were in great shape. A few forced carries here too makes things interesting.
It was a great experience on a great Florida course.

Beautiful course that challenges your club selection and ability to hit targets. I would play it every chance I get.

Fun course. Good layout. Challenging but not overly difficult.

Great course. This is the LPGA Qualifying course. Sets up to reward good shots and penalizes bad ones. Lots of wildlife. Very hot but course had very strategically located water, which was plentiful and very cold. Would have like to have been paired up with a group since I had lots of waiting and down time. There was a threesome scheduled with me but the starter did not enforce the goruping time.

Can't wait to play again.
The only problem I had was the weather not being very nice the day before. They had about 3 to 4 inches of rain the day before I played , so it was cart path only for carts and was a little soggy in spots. Very friendly staff and just a great day.

Fun course - played a day after torrential downpour
Not a fair assessment I guess because we played when the course had been almost flooded the day before. Cart path only I. The heat of the summer is tough. Range was also closed because of wet conditions. So didn't get the full experience. Course was in great shape considering. Maybe I'll go back again when conditions are better. I will say this....I played shingle creek a few days before and consider it to be better. Might not make my top 10 of courses I've played in central Florida but I do recommend.
