Renditions Golf Grand Slam Experience
Our Lucky Day
My partner and I went out directly after an outing and had the course literally to ourselves. The fairways and greens got beaten up a bit by the group prior to us, but you could see the course was in overall great repair.
I picked this course as the intro to a golf weekend with an old friend, and he really enjoyed it.
There's certainly trouble to find if you aren't accurate, but if you play within your abilities there are opportunities to go low.

No Woman T-Boxes
The course was very unigue and I enjoyed getting a par on the par 3 island green! However, I was extremely disappointed that they did not have any woman T-boxes. Most of the woman T-d off in the middle of the fariway! I had and uphill lie on one of my t-off spots! Unacceptable. I would not recommend this to any of my woman golfing friends.

Play it at least once
This is fairly close to where I live and I come out and use their range when I don't want to deal with the masses at Night Hawk. It's a nice, well-kept course though some of the fairways are full of unprepared divots.
After playing it more than once, most will only remember Amen Corner and the TPC @ Sawgrass (The "Island" Hole), though it's nice to see some of the other holes.
It's a challenging course that's worth the price of admission. It's the closest "nice" public course to me, so I do play it quite often. It's well worth your time, though sometimes the pace of play is a bit frustrating (though they do let you jump around out there if you want to).

From the greeting at the bag drop to the friendliness in the club house to the uniqueness of this course you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. The course it's self does a great job of letting you imagine yourself on the island green at TPC Sawgrass making a wining put or crossing Hogan's bridge at Agusta. Carts with GPS are a great addition, though the computer controlled speed limit is annoying. I don't know if the perfect weather made this experience just that much better but we truly enjoyed our round out here (it was the first Sunday of football season so I cannot speak to the normal pace and crowd). All in all I would absolutely recommend playing this course!

Very poor putting surfaces
Prior to making my tee time, I called the clubhouse to speak to a staff member. Playing in early September, I was concerned about the greens being aerified and I didn’t want any surprises when I showed up. The staff member told me “the greens were aerified more than three weeks ago” and that they are “right where we like them”. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed with the condition of the greens after falling for the staff’s used car salesman trick. The aerification was not the issue, as the greens were healed. However, the majority of the greens (if not all of them) had some type of defect including crabgrass growing on the putting surface, deadspots that have since turned into rolled mud, and damaged holes. Additionally, any golfer would think that the greens would have been mowed, especially for the weekend rounds and with near-perfect weather during the previous days. In hindsight, I could have played closer to home, paid a fraction of the cost, and putted on surfaces that would have rolled truer had they been aerified earlier that week. Without a doubt, Renditions sells you on their replica of famous holes from around the world, not the upkeep of the most important part of a golf course. They got my money once, but never again.

getting better, long round
This course is close to my house , I do not play regularly due to the 5 hour rounds. Waiting on lots of tees on a sunday morning, I was given a free round as a gift, no one in shop mentioned they just aerated greens. I was given a 2 for1 coupon however. rough is thick, greens should be great in 10 days. I did birdie the TPC hole, so great day.

Renditions Remains a Good Value
I have played Renditions a half dozen times over the last 10 years. It is always very fun. Many of the greens are tricky and you would have to play it fairly often to know when you can challenge pins positions and when you should be happy with hitting the center of the green, two putt for par, and move on to the next hole. The putting surface was in terrific shape, putts rolled consistently, the break was fairly easy to read. That said, golfers need to fix their ball marks. Favorite part of the course is Amen Corner and the Island Green. Everyone should play this course at least once.

"Amen Corner," the "church pews", and the "island green" all in one day!
Great concept. This course delivers. It was easy to imagine the galleries gathered around the greens as we made our approaches. Staff was efficient, helpful, and knowledgeable.
