Good layout and conditions
I played 6 courses in the area the last two weeks and the conditions were much better here than the others . The greens and fairways were in good shape especially with the really cold winter we just experienced .Also we played on Sunday morning and finished in 3 1/2 hrs. I will definitely be back soon .

Great people and good course at an excellent rate
My daughter and I were looking to get a little practice in at the range and play 9 holes while on vacation. When we arrived, the employees were extremely nice and made us feel like we had been there a number of times. While at the practice range, a member named Roy approached us, introduced himself and asked if my daughter would mind spending 15 minutes with the head pro named Frank on his dime. I was surprised and impressed at the offer as well as the fact Frank would take the time with little notice. Frank did a wonderful job making a few adjustments to my daughters swing which translated into one of her better rounds of golf since she started playing 2 1/2 years ago. Not only did Frank spend the 15 mintues with her on golf instruction but also took additional time talking about opportunities in college for female golfers . What great people and a pretty nice course at an excellent rate! If I am in the area again, I will defintely be back playing that course.

Conditions were sketchy. Greens were top dressed with sand. Fairways thin and firm. Could use a little TLC.

Drainage issues, but nice layout
The greens had been recently sanded, and although they rolled them nicely, they did not put particularly well. Recent rains had swamped a lot of the course. We were not allowed to take a cart whatsoever, which was supposed to be included in the green fees. I would call ahead before I played there again, to avoid those situations.

A great day on the course for March
When I got there I was met by very friendly staff. While at the Pro shop I met a member who invited me to play along with him, this was very helpful out on the course. The course was in very good shape for winter play. Fairways were just recently cut and being prepared for spring, but did not hamper play. The greens were moderate roll. The course layout was appeasing to the eye. Wish I was here for spring play this course would be fantastic.

This is a nice course however they did not have the Gold tees set correctly. Almost all of them were with the red tees making it play very short. Why they have these extra tees and don't utilize them is beyond me. As an older player I find that I want to play at about 5500-5600 yards. This waqs not what I could do with the tees available . It was either 5900 or 5100.
Other wise it was a good experience.

Challenging round from the tips!
Starts well from the greeting in the parking lot, very accommodating and helpful in the pro shop. Good range. Very interesting course layout, with challenging par 3's, ,true and fast greens. Laser Linked flag sticks. A round from the tips will give anyone a test and force one to use every club in the bag! Also a rare walkable Florida course.
