One of our favorites
We stayed at Inverness for the second time and returned to Juliette Falls, since we liked it to much. The course was as nice as we expected! It is not the typical easy layout with lush fairways you het on some resort lay-outs: Every hole at JF is different, not extremely difficult, but all with their own challenge. Fairways maybe a bit on the hard side, green undulating and fast enough.
Since it was busy, the pace was a bit slow and that is a pity: on the back nine you tend to start to lose concentration and those are the best holes of the course. Together with World Woods this course make my top3 when I/m in Inverness. It is worth the drive.

Excellent Staff, Beautiful Course
Went to play on a Saturday morning with no tee time and Vince Puglia was able to get me on the course immediately. He was very accommodating with me being an out of towner visiting. On hole number 6 my back went out, so I had to go back to the pro shop to call it a day. I told Vince what happened and he offered to give me a raincheck for the round, but I informed him that I was visiting my parents for Thanksgiving and that I was leaving the next day. Vince instead gave me a FULL refund. Needless to say, I was very satisfied with the course and its condition, the staff, and the accommodating from Mr. Puglia. I will return here next year when I am in town for sure!

Lots of sand
Many greens well protected by bunkers
Large waste areas
Day we played, greens were very fast
I'm a 20 handicapper, and find the course very challenging.

Romeo closed at Juliette Falls
We've made the slog from Tampa numerous times to play this course and have yet to be disappointed. With a Burger and beer at the turn it's a great value. Juliette Falls is a lot of course to maintain yet they manage to do a fine job of it. The only negative, and it's a small one, was the lack of pin placement guidance. All of the flags were blue and we could discern no pattern to their placement. All in all, this is a good, fun, must play layout

It doesn't appear they are overseeding the greens. They were fast and rolled true. Overall excellent course conditions.

A "must play". Wonderful course
The conditions are great and the course layout has a lot of character. This one could quickly become a favorite for anyone who gives it a shot. I've played it 3 times now, and I've really enjoyed each visit.

Very much worth the road trip
If you live in Tampa or Orlando, Juliette Falls is not exactly around the corner. Don't think twice if you appreciate a great golf course and plan the visit. I was NOT going to miss out on the final long day of sunshine before Daylight Savings Time ended and a blast of cold temperatures actually gave me a fast pace of play as a bonus. This is also the rare non-Bermuda grass experience for a Florida golf course, as it apparently a hybrid specially made for them and it is the finest stuff I've hit fairway shots on since my last experience on Kentucky bluegrass in Colorado. Also, absolutely loved the shaved down edges on much of the greens. Sure, I putted one ball right off the green, but I adjusted and so will you. Course favors a draw off the tee, but fade hitters are not at a significant disadvantage. You will also find the clubhouse very intimate and inviting. Their bar area does not look like anything usually found at a golf property with great TVs and cool blue neon lighting. Tell Vince and the guys in the Pro Shop you made the drive from out of town and they will go out of their way to make sure you feel appreciated. That's what they did for me.

play to slow, 5 hour round on Sunday morning.
Great course, but pace of play entirely to slow. Waited 5 to 10-minutes on every tee box.
