Ocala Palms Golf & Country Club
Okay course. Very poor service.
I was passing through Ocala on my way to Orlando for business and booked a 4:15 tee time. Checked in about 4:00 to an incredibly rude person explaining how I shouldn't have been allowed to book a tee time after 4 as "it's impossible to keep a course open for one person". Not knowing any other courses in the area and wanting to get in 18 I agreed to "get as many in as I could and be back 'about 6' ". He took $7 off my round for my inconvenience. I played as quickly as any one person could play and was greeted on the 15th green at 5:45 by the cart staff stating that this needed to be my last hole. I conceded to his request and left the course very aggravated. I'm sorry if they don't have the business to keep the course open until dark like most every course I've been to but it's really not my problem if I book a tee time that they posted.
As far as the course, the layout was great, the fairways were patchy and the greens were the worst I've played all summer.
It's possible that the low attendance could be contributed to the rude staff and less than desirable course conditions.....

Greens were a little long and shabby.Played in 2,5 hours met up with a twosome on 15 and they let me join them for the last couple of holes.Very friendly.Course is playable but a little ragged around the edges.

It is a beautiful course with hills and water fountains. Loved the water hazards. However, there was no food nor drinks when return after 9 holes. Everything was closed. It was a ghost town. Yet, we had the course to ourselves and had a lot of fun. Would play again

The greens are in terrible condition - slow, patchy, and full of fungus. Putts bounce all over the place IF you can even get the ball to the hole. After a rainy day, the greens were incredibly slow.

This course is for seniors
The length of the course makes it definitely fit for retired people. Greens were in bad shape with a lot of bare spots and were very bumpy. Fairways were in good shape.

For the money, the greens were in pretty bad shape, along with other areas throughout the course.
Too many well kept courses in the area to play here again.

Fun Lynx style course w/ many unique holes.
1:30pm tee time w/ wife for $15.90/ea thru GN.com. Course is in fairly good condition. Could use a little watering: tee boxes dried & sparsely grassed. Fairways pretty plush. Elevated medium sized greens rolling true & medium to fast paced. 13th hole is a goofy blind tee shot. back nine tee boxes chopped up. Battery powered carts w/ windshield & rain cover in back. Will definitely play again when in area.

Great course, slower players but good play overall
Course was wide open with exception of some slower foursomes. Course was in good shape with recently sanded greens. Not for faster player.
