Saddlebrook - Saddlebrook Course
Tough, scenic track
Birthday discount + hot now deal =$33 ....ABSOLUTELY worth that price! $100/round? Nah.
I got paired up with a couple of guys that had played there, so I had a guide. We all were very disappointed that on the 1st tee the starter informed us that it was cart path only. The back 9 was 90 degrees.
The course was in great shape. Solid, consistent greens. Not overly fast, but well maintained. It's a resort course, so it wasn't THAT difficult. Although it is pretty tight.
I would absolutely recommend the Saddlebrook course, still want to play the Palmer course.
The one drawback I had was the mandatory valet parking. An almost 15 minute wait to get my car.

A very good and beautiful course with a variety of hole designs, plenty of water and quite tight, the course is made even tighter by the fact that if your ball strays it will almost guaranteed to be lost. Apparently the course is built in a swamp area and there is no hope of hitting out of the woods. Other than needing to pack extra balls and not caring about taking a penalty stroke or three it was a good round. The only parking is valet, so be prepared and don't leave your shoes in the car.

Nice course but not worth full green fee
Played this course as a hot deal. Certainly worth 39 dollars. But certainly not worth the 145 full green fee. Greens were nice not fast but true. Tight driving areas made for some challenging shots.

Played this course last summer (during rainy season) and it was horrible. Played yesterday and it was great. The fairways were very good and the greens for the most part were true and fast. Three or four of the greens were a little worn, likely due to much play by our northern visitors. Saw plenty of wildlife including rabbits, snakes (harmless) and at least 25 alligators. Overall it was a wonderful day.

Very well cared for course
Played the course as a hot deal special. By far the nicest course I've played on it the area but I do have limited experience playing golf in this area. Staff are fantastic, course is very well maintained and the setting is spectacular!

Course has great water holes
Course has some great water holes and overall is pretty tight on the fairways. A lot of dog leg rights which fit most peoples eyes as most of us fade. Greens are touch and go with some excellent and others so so.

Best course in the area for the value
Course was in great condition. I would play it again if I could get it for the same price i paid.

The greens are in terrible shape
I was very disappointed in the speed of play, and the greens were in terrible shape if I had paid full price to play here I would ask for my money back.
