We just played a few days ago and the greens were in rough shape. They aerated the greens then we got deluged with rain. They added way too much sand to the greens and it was very difficult, if not impossible to put. We had heard many recommendations for this course and were a little let down. We will try again later in the summer and maybe the greens will be in better shape. We were a foursome.
The front nine is nothing exceptional. The fairways are narrow enough that accuracy is not mandatory but very helpful. It was difficult to locate balls in the first cut of rough outside the fairway. The sand traps were in abysmal shape but that's to be expected from the 9 days of rain in a row. We played on a Saturday morning and were disappointed the bar and grill was not open until 11. We could have used a cocktail, and they did not have a "beer cart" on the course.
We were able to get drinks at the turn.
The back nine was more exciting with the 4 quarry holes and some elevation in West Central Florida. I was surprised at the small amount of paved cart paths given our green fees were $34 in the height of summer. Our cart was gas powered, somewhat loud for my liking, and the ride was a little bumpy. The forward tee boxes were flat, which is nice, and the blues were as well.
We were asked to allow a group of members riding in individual carts to play through "or they will be on you" but we were waiting behind a threesome. Also the members did not adhere to any sort of course respect. i.e. driving right next to the greens, and driving their carts in the fairway of a cart path only hole. It was very off-putting to see such lack of respect from members.
After our round we ate lunch at the grill and my patty melt was delicious.
They had water available on the course, always a necessity in Florida. There were decent bathrooms on the front nine but on the back nine I think it is port a potties.
