“No starter or marshals = extremely slow play.”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

Labor day 2012 was a dissapointment at Cimarrone Golf Course. The course has a great layout, and is visually nice. But on a very busy holiday, they had no starter, or was too distracted to do what a starter does, and no marshals to try to keep play moving. Too many singles and two-somes going off the tee. Most courses will pair incomplete groups together to help with the pace of play. There were groups holding up play which made several of us quit after 14 holes. After quiting on #14 and driving through getting back to the club house it was obvious one group was at least 2 holes behind. Earlier, while I was going to the first tee, a group coming off #9 stopped the "starter" complaining about the pace of play and how the group in front of them was playing the tips when they probably should not have been. I don't think the starter did anything about it. Cimarrone is a good value eventhough the greens on the back nine or struggling badly. Just don't expect the same service that you would normally get in the area or what the course deserves.

“Good Public Course”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Was in pretty good shape, tough pins. Neighborhood doesn't encroach too much. Practice facility not the greatest, and the clubhouse was closed early, wanted to try grill/bar after the round but couldn't get in.

Good value and overall well maintained course, would play again.

“OK golf course; bad customer relations”
Reviewed 8 March 2011

Nice golf course, but they did not cut the greens. Their customer relations leave a lot to be desired. I don't think it's too cool to close the clubhouse at 5:00 when they advertise 6:00. Our first group got back in well ahead of the time we finished, and had to wait for us out in the cold (55 degrees F) for an hour. Also, that day, there was no pro in the Pro Shop, and only one person to greet us and start us off. Is Cimaronne in financial trouble?

I am sorry that you had a bad experience at Cimarrone. Our goal is to ensure that every customer has a great round of golf and fantastic customer service. If the clubhouse was closed on that particular day then I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and please contact me at pashe@cimarronegolf.com if you are in the area again and I would love to have you visit us again for a complimentary round. It sounds as though it was a cold weather day so most likely the clubhouse did close early on that day due to the weather and limited golfers on the course at that time of evening. Once again I apologize and would like the opportunity to have you come out and visit us on your next trip to Jacksonville.
