“Fire the starter”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

Such a beautiful golf course. Always in perfect condition. Friendly staff except for John. He was so rude to us when it was time for us to tee-up. This man has personal issues and should not be working around people, especially customers.

“Tranquile challenge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I played this course twice on this visit. Once on a calm day once on a breezy day. For me a great variety of holes, challenging enough, nice scenery (no housing development yet). Friendly service!

“Great track, improved !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

We played on 10/12 , WCI the new owners, have done an awesome job improving the conditions. We have played the course since it opened and it is getting back into top notch condition. Wow, what a difference since they closed for a month of maintenance , new sand in bunkers, fairways improved and acres of brush removed and the greens are super.

I think this will become one of the premier public courses in the area ,bar none. I belong to a club in Venice ,it is very nice and has all the amenities, but we love to play here from May-Nov , lower green fees .The shortcomings are far out shadowed by the recent course improvements. Our guys are not interested in ambiance, restaurants or a bar , low hcp golfers ,who love to play golf!! Oh, they do have a beverage cart . I think some of the previous reviewers are way to picky or snobbish. Sure there some shortcomings , the driving range the biggest in my opinion you hit balls into the water. The another possible negatives, I see coming ,is a rate increase and the increase of home building which has already started.

“Nice but no ambiance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

The course is very well taken care off. Nice fairways and very well maintained greens. Long travels between holes in an open environment (no houses built yet) The clubhouse is nice but no possibility to have a friendly drink after the round.

“Needs Help!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

When this course first opened, the the track was fabulous! Sadly, it has undergone a long, slow, decline, not what you would expect from a Troon-managed facility.right now, you will pay too much for too little.
