Water Water Everywhere and not a drop to drink. Challenging course if you are not accurate off the tree.

Pros: Shorter course designed for accuracy. In the middle of a nature preserve with wildlife everywhere. Friendly staff. Grass range.

Cons: Lots of water to lose your balls. If you are coming down from a Northern Winter, don't play here first. But definitely play here.

We hit this course first in our Winter Depression trip.  It demands accuracy off the tee or you will lose your balls literally in the water.  

 

Warm Up - Grass driving range into water.  Nicely maintained.  Two level putting green and they allow pitching and chipping.

 

Tees - Nicely maintained and generally flat.

 

Greens - Not sure of the grass type but no visible grain.  Greens were running 7 to 8 judging by break.  They were in good shape and the ball rolled true.  Some pitch marks, but it looks like the regulars fix them as a practice.

 

Rough - Some odd grass I was not familiar with. It did not look like Bermuda as it was scrubby and flat.  But it was difficult to pitch and chip out of because it would catch the club face.

 

Fairways - Nicely maintained.  Narrow on a lot of holes with water on at least one side.

 

Sand - Firm yet playable.

 

Overall layout - In a nature preserve with some development housing on a number of hole.

 

Views - Lots of Osprey, turkey vultures and other critters like turtles and fish.  Only saw one gator, a seven footer on the first ladies tee!

 

Staff - Friendly and welcoming.

 

Club House - Bar and Restaurant were decent.

 

Rates - It gets cheaper if you are a resident.
