Crater Springs Golf Club (formally Homestead)
This is a great course. There are a lot of challenging holes. Greens were a little long, still early in the spring for midway.

Great Course - Very Fast Pace for the "Fast" Tee Time
This was a great course, and I loved how fast this truly was. I was able to plat as a single and get through 18 in about 2:45.

A Name Change for Homestead Resort
Homestead Resort Golf Course is now Crater Springs Golf Course.
The pluses include the reasonable rates for Seniors after noon, the greens are in good shape, the pro shop is friendly particularly Rick. There is quite a bit of scenery with views, trees, plants and water features.
Now for the minuses. The rough is very thick and those same water features can be sneaky and jump and grab your ball. The course is popular and gets a very heavy level of play. They have a sporadic Marshall who showed up one time. They need him to show more often. Sometimes the cart paths are not easily defined and that can be tricky for a new player. There are too many areas roped off which requires extra walking and slows the pace of play.
There's a good variety of holes. The par fives are manageable,
and the par 4s are doable.
A good test of golf in a nice area

The course was in fantastic shape for October! If they punched the greens it wasn't during October. They were in very good shape!! The views of Midway were unbelievable, beautiful colors and 75 degrees, a great place to be. Love the course and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Poorly designed course
The course is completely surrounded by homes on either side of every hole except about 2. And these homes are extremely close. Some holes fairways are no wider then 30-40 yards wide before you're physically touching a house. Everytime you pull up to a hole, the cart monitor warns you if this danger and reminds you, "you are responsible for damages." Which is good, but you can't enjoy the course without constant fear of collateral damage
