  • Played twice this week. Natural setting. Beautiful course. Sweet greens. (11 handicap for what it’s worth).  more »
  • Great golf course. I'm from upstate South Carolina, come here for vacation every year. Found this course this year, and it has moved to the top of the list. The Greens are perfect, and create an incredible test of your short game. Very few, straight in putts to be had. Great layout, you will need every club in your bag, and will need to hit draws and fades off of tee boxes and approach shots. The cart paths are a perfect fit for the setting of the coarse. No, they aren't asphalt or concrete, but they are great, and a first timer gets to ride through a lush canopy of natural Florida habitat wondering what challenge awaits at the next tee box. GPS system is very accurate and gives a great hole preview. My wife doesn't play, but really enjoyed driving the cart while I played. She loved looking at all of the beautiful gardens that accompanied the homes around the course. I played in the afternoon between 3 and 4. On vacation with the wife, so going to the beach is top priority. However, the course provides plenty of shade, so don't let an afternoon round slip by, due to the heat. I can't say much about the staff, except for the young lady working the counter. She was the only one I met and she was very friendly and accommodating. Overall, a tremendous test of golf, greens as perfect as you can find anywhere, and fairways are great. Very good setting, to enjoy natural Florida environment, and the rates are more than fair for the experience.
  • Good course for the price. The greens were in immaculate shape and by far the highlight of the round. The layout was both challenging and forgiving at times. I only had two issues with my experience: 1)The condition of the fairways and rough, lots of dead grass. 2)The cart paths were really bumpy and need attention. I would definitely recommend playing a round if you're in the area.
