Worth the price
Pro: High number of dog leg holes, large well-kept green side bunkers, slight elevation changes, well conditioned greens, and undulated greens.
Con: grass is sparse off the fairway, no sign to direct to the 17th hole.
Overall: good price for the course. Courses that are wooded tend to have problems growing grass off the fairway...no problem just play preferred lie and enjoy your day.

Where are the rangers?
The course is interesting and the greens are in pretty good shape for this time of year. We teed off behind a two some and never saw them again. We had distanced ourselves from the group behind us after the first hole and figured we'd play under 3.5 hours until we caught the group on the 5th holes. Even though we didn't play our best golf we still had to wait on every shot on every hole. The group saw us but wouldn't let us go. The two some either jumped them or the four some allowed them through. Either way they were not going to let another group pass them. The slower group behind us caught us and were delayed on every hole too. We decided to pass them at the turn when they stopped for drinks or a restroom break. They skipped the stop and went on. Bottom line it took us almost 5 hours to play. When we finished there was a cart with a sign that said they had course rangers but I guess they don't ranger.

Not visitor friendly...
This is a nice course, greens are in excellent shape...if you stay in the fairways, you will do fine...however, 5 ft from the fairways, you will either be in the weeds or sand...Challenging par 3's..long...
What turned us down is the lack of starter staff, which in turn result in a course where solo players appear do rule the place...do not search for the 150 ft indication...there is one on the first hole...likely to impress you, and then you will have to wait until the 15th hole to find another one...how much does it cost to install a plastic pipe, 3ft long an a alley ???...same with 200 ft and 100 ft indicators...either somebody stole them, or they were buried in the grass...a youth greets you at the shop and forgets to tell you that you need to ensure you got your rake with you for the sand traps...no rake on the course ???there is a comment about to adhere. To proper attire....well, what about basketball shorts and a tee shirt...is this proper attire...do not bother having such a comment on your card if you are prepared to enforce it...
This is the typical case of a local club serving locals...if you are a visitor in the Orlando area, like we are, do not waste your time and $ there...this course does not want your business...

Potential for excellence but not without staff dedication
Played the white tees (2nd longest).Very forgiving fairways. Well placed bunkers protect greens that are largely in good condition. Fairways and tee boxes very ragged. Over seeding either lacking or didn`t really take. Virtually no rakes for sand traps and very few ball washers. Staff were not attentive to toilets, with paper allowed to run out, and not replaced even after being brought to attention of pro shop staff.

Beautiful weather, enjoyable round
Three of us played behind a foursome so there was some waiting, We were able to start a few minutes before our tee time. The greens were rolling and fast. The area around greens was often bare or sparse which made chipping difficult but course was in generally good shape.

Nice course, good value, score card problems
This is a nice course and a good value for the money. Fairly open with good landing areas but lots of sand to be found along the way. The greens had been recently sanded so they were not a fair test on the day that we played. However, they looked like they would be decent after the sand was gone. The only problem we had was determining distances to the pin. This was our first visit to the course and the yardages on the score card did not match those posted at the tee box. As well, the fairway markers were sometimes difficult to locate. No slopes or ratings were indicated on the score cards, making it complicated for a senior like me to decide which tees to play. A yardage book would have been very useful but they did not offer one. If the course updates these items it will make the course that much more enjoyable.

Too expensive for the money
It was and ok course, fairways were dry and instead of rough there was more like dirt. Greens were ok.
For 29 dollar I would go to Stoneybrook west :)
