Bobcat Trail Golf Club
Very woman friendly tees.
The greens are undulating and so much fun to read to get a good putt. One water hazard got to me but for the most part no water hazards were too difficult. There are enough water hazards to give the course some nice character. Even after the heavy rain the day before the fairway drainage was super. There was some water in the bunkers and they were playing a bit muddy. Only pick it clean shots were required, no hit behind the ball and let the sand move the ball. I would rate this course as a favorite.

The GPS on the carts helps first timers
Overall A good value but they are now charing $5 for practice balls.

very challenging; not much grass in fairways
fairways and roughs were like cement; a few center cut drives ended up in hazards due to extreme undulations and course conditions

Challenging with. Great layout
Course offers many challenging golf holes. I played in very windy conditions and that made the course more challenging. Course is well maintained. Play was steady with no hold-ups. I would recommend this course to all level of players.

Excellent value for the money.
The course is well maintained, challenging and they have a welcoming staff and attitude. Would definately play it again!

Excellent reasonably priced course for all levels!
We were first timers playing from the Green Tees. Accuracy off the tee is a must with water or other trouble often in play. We played in windy conditions so location was extra important. Not long so you can forego some distance and still reach the greens in reg. The greens were in excellent shape, medium fast and with some very subtle breaks that makes you groan when you see the track of your ball. We will definitely play it again.

Great course with excellent value!
I have played this course several times and always enjoy it. Very challenging. Course is well maintained. Greens were excellent and rolled really well. No complaints. Pace of play was superb. Each time I play it, I enjoy it more!

Nice layout. Needs some attention
Greens are patchy. Many of the traps are full of ground up shells and rocks. In good condition it would be a real pleasure to play. Pace of play was slow.

Tough but playable course.
Good course with very good routing. Good variety of holes that were playable if you pick the right tee. Good value. Greens where smooth with speed. Ball held when hit well. Will play again.

Excellent for low handicap golfers...
Course is in good shape, excellent value, and quick greens. Lots of sand (good sand), some of the largest bunkers we have seen, lots of "risk reward" holes, high handicap golfers should think twice about playing here even from the front tees - greens are very complex and challenging. If you can read the grain - a major help. Fairways are well kept but offer few flat/level lies. We found it fun and fast. Never waited. This review by 20 handicap and played from green tees.

Put on your "Must Play" list
Pro Shop staff started the experience on a positive note, very friendly and helpful. GPS on the cart was a major plus, accurately displayed the hole and yardages to trouble, traps, etc. Fairways were in good condition as were the tee boxes. Greens were excellent and fast with multiple levels. A very enjoyable round of golf and would recommend this as a "must play" course in SW Florida.

Another course that whilst challenging gives the higher handicapper a good chance to play their shots. Nice and open with good fairways and responsive greens. Pace of play was excellent probably helped by having heavy rain in the morning which probably kept lots of the course in the pm.

Great course ,best rolling greens I've played in Fla,lots of challenges ,with water and bunkers on most of the holes,really disappointed when they let a 5 some play in front of us ,when they said at the start they where slammed,then we found out one of the five some was one of the owners? Are you kidding me ,not a good business move mr owner.

One of the best courses in the area.
The course is set up with 5 different tee boxes. There is a sign by the first tee recommending a tee box based on a players handicap. Pay attention to the sign. The yardage for each tee box can be very deceptive. Distance is only part of each hole. Great layouts, but you can get in trouble very easy. Greens roll very well, but are difficult unless you can get a handle on the speed and recognize the break. Have played this course twice and shot 78 once and 91 the second time.

Good Not Great
Played the course today. It was spitting rain off and on but nothing hard enough to stop play. But it did stop a lot of people from playing. The course was wide open. No one in front of us the entire time. I want to say the course was good. Nothing to special. I will have to disagree with the people who are complaining about the sand traps. They were ok. No huge stones that people were complaining about. There is a lot of water on the course but for the exception of one or two holes the water doesnt really come into play. The greens were in really good shape except for the people who dont fix there ball marks. Tee boxs were in pretty good shape. I played from the golds and prob could of played from the tips. Shot an 85 and took a 10 on 17.

It was a fun course to play and well worth the money. Every hole was a new adventure. The greens are very challenging
Playing in Florida in March can be very expensive. I just arrived in this area and checked out a several courses. This course was by far the most interesting and the price was very reasonable. I really enjoyed playing it and hope to get a few more rounds in on it before I head back norht.

Great features and great greens
Fast tough greens. Great value for $$$. Would golf there anytime

Fairways and tee grounds are in poor condition. Played this course last year and sorry to see how it has deteriorated .
Course condition has deteriorated from prior years. Disappointed and so were the people who joined me from Naples. Would not be in a hurry to play it again.

Nice layout with great greens
Good layout. Homes were set back some from the course. Bunkers were inconsistent and needed work. Most fairway bunkers were dirt.
February 24, 2013
The course was very challenging and needed your concentration.
The course provided the opportunity to use most of your clubs. The holes were diverse enough to keep your attention on how to plan and play each hole. The par fives on the back were challenging and required a precise third shot. Overall the greens were smooth and fast. A very enjoyable experience.

bunkers need sand/rough needs work
nice staff / course was a good holiday track
green in good shape--would play here again
February 17, 2013

OVER BOOKED AND OVER PRICED!!!
this coarse was overbooked and over priced...had to wait for a cart for 20 minutes passed our tee time ...it took at least 15 minutes to even hit a ball..each time!! asked the staff for a rain check for the back nine because it was so frustrating and they hit me with "thats not our policy". i will never reccomend this coarse to anyone and i will be sure to tell all my friends terrible i was treated at this coarse.

I recommend this course.
Overall the course is well kept and very playable. The pace of play was acceptable with very little waiting on the group in front. The sand traps are the worst and should be called gravel traps as there are large and small stones mixed with the sand. Otherwise a very enjoyable course to play.
February 15, 2013
Pace of play was awfull. The sand traps were in horrible condition and fairways very dry.
February 14, 2013
greens make the course
Nice track, although fairways were a little bumpy. I am a 19 handicap on narrow 6200 yd New York courses, and I hit a 90 playing at 5800 yards here. There are several challenging tee shots, but the fairways are mostly wide and welcoming. It was the greens that made this course fun - they were fast and true, with lots of terraces and undulations. Overall, a good deal at $50 bucks!
February 11, 2013
By starting after 2 pm, and with slow play, you will not be able to complete 18 holes this time of year....But we enjoyed it and the 2 some we were paired with.

Greens need some work
Beautiful golf course, unfortunately their greens and bunkers need some drastic attention. When I see clumps of foreign grass growing all over the greens which will knock your ball off line, I think this course is shorting their maintenance budget. The bunkers on some holes are so full of rocks and shells, they almost become unplayable, unless you can borrow your buddy's club. Great layout which I have played before, but probably not coming back until this is corrected.
