Venetian Bay Golf Club
Nice but more to be done
A nice course and I like the layout. There is construction going on all over the complex but it does not interfere with the play of the course. Tough time figuring out the distances as it is a fairly new course. It was fun and I will play it again. Not a course for walkers,long distance between tee boxes.

course was in okay shape. Greens had been punched and sanded 1 week before and had not fully recovered. Greens looked as if they had not been cut for several days.

Slooooooow Play & Greens
Wow. We teed off around 930. There were 4 foursomes ahead of us. It took nearly 5 hours to play. The group in front of us were atrocious golfers yet lined up putts for triple bogey. There was one gentleman on the course a couple groups ahead with his ARM IN A SLING. We mentioned the horrible pace of play in the pro shop after 9 holes, and no one seemed to care. There wasn't a marshall on the course. Facilities were decent but the greens hadn't been mowed in months. It was like putting on shag carpet. Can't see myself here again on a weekend morning anytime soon.

Nice layout, but.........
First of all, Golfnow advertised 46% off price which I accepted. Got there and after paying the rate quoted plus the service fee, I found my friend paid the SAME PRICE without Golfnow OR the service fee. HMMMM.
About the course, nice layout and great possibilities.
HOWEVER, they didn't tell us there was an outing of NINE groups ahead of us. Also, the greens were SO HOPELESSY BAD we had to take 2 putts per hole and move on. VERY SAD.

the course was in great shape, I am not a member so the tee time I had would have put me with members. The starter asked be to go out by myself they did not want me to play with members. I've never had that happen before I guess the members of this course must be very stuckup.

This course has great potential. However when I played the greens had just been airorated and the greens were mostly sand. The bunkers were not in good condition; from bare to too much sand.
The person in the pro shop was not freindly and I came away thinking I had interrupted him from wharever he had been doing. The cart staff were great before and after the round.
There is ample room to drive the ball but pay attention to approach shots. I will return in the fall when I return hoping the greens are better.

Course is a quality course and very challenging. Hidden shots make it a little difficult. Cost on golfnow is same at course but you pay the service fee. So it's not a deal. Cost of beer on course is higher then bar. Plus top is included. Seems a little high for a can of beer.

Course needs a lot of work
We played the course on April 10 at 8:35 am. We have played the course several times before. We played in early February and the greens were sanded with a green coating, which we told was put on to kill off wild grass. We figured we would book again in April. To our surprise when we played this time, the greens had bare spots, areas where they were resodded. and the first par 3 was actually a temporary green. This is all understandable if there was a green problem, but when we made the reservation, or checked in, why didn't anyone tell us the condition of the greens and bunkers?
