A friendly course in good condition. A bit out of the way. Might need a guide to find your way from some greens to the next tee box. Wide fairways. No out-of-bounds. Overall a very nice day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by randy12466 really bad
t here is no fairways only crabgrass and ant hills every where.There is no sand traps.the greens were over seeded,which we found out after we paid.The greens were at least 2 inches thick,like a shag carpet.We did not even put,after playing golf in the Tampa and Orlando area the worst golf course I have played.

Rated 2 out of 5 by llaczko Nice Day Out
Played the course on 11/5, was a super cheap fee, but when at the course they had over-seeded and were to cut the grass on 11/6. Greens were impossible with grass higher than a USA quarter. Fairways appear to be St. Augustine grass - different experience. Pace of play was fast since you really could not put. Staff was great. Nice day out and the oak trees were magnificent. Not a memorable day of golf.

Quiet little country course. Layout is unique to say the least, but that's part of its charm. The price is great and it's worth the drive to play this course.

When it wasn't lightly raining, the weather was perfect to play golf. The rain was off and on. You can't beat the price of the Abbey. Enjoyed playing on Sunday morning. I will return.

Picturesque Florida course across from St Leo's College. From top of hill to green down in valley 1st tee on par 4 makes you feel like you can drive the green. Forced carry's, slight elevation changes, this is Florida so could be considered hilly. There are no sand traps for those of you that love the beach. Great place to practice your game as course if fairly open with uphill downhill lies. This is not your $50-$100 per round course but for the money well worth a visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Captjack3511 Underrated
The Abbey Course is a small under rated jem. Talking with other golfers and reading reviews, the Abbey is presented as the "Red headed stepchild." Well, I'll tell you the "Red headed stepchild child" is a tough little guy with a lot of character.
A few holes do parallel each other, which I'm not a big fan of. Some holes you do need a map to find. Some holes are wide open fairways and some are narrow requiring you to be very accurate. Some holes you're shooting down hill and some you're going up. Some holes you were in the woods and felt like you were in the "back 40" and others are right next to State Road 52. Some have swamp hazards to shoot over, but there are no sand bunkers to worry about. And then there's hole #10, which is a par 6, yes a long long par six at 560 yards from the whites. About 3 of the fairways were overgrown and in desperate need of mowing. The rest were in a above standard condition. The greens were like nothing I felt before. They were the softest I'd ever stood on. It felt like there was foam padding underneath which was enjoyable. The greens speed theirselves were about average.
The course is great for beginners, good for moderates and fun for everyone as long as thier noses are not to long and held to high.
Over all, I loved the Abbey Course and can't wait to play it again and for only $15, it's the best deal around.
By the way I've eaten at the Abbey restaurant several times for lunch finding it very good.

Course layout a bit confusing,but with the layout
on the score card,it was manageable. A few wet spots
that can be easily avoided. Greens slightly elevated,
fairly flat,fast and true. Fairways are playable,but of
poor quality. Good beginner or youth course.
