Juliette Falls - Dunnellon, FL


Recommended Posts

This beautiful golf club humbled me real quick over the weekend! My home course is in terrible shape and me and the guys decided we needed to go play a real course again. My god the greens murdered me and it was hilarious..not even upset about it either. I've played most of the courses around Gainesville and some near Lake City but this was the first time in over 10 years that I played what I'm going to call a proper golf course! Highly recommend this course if you are in Florida and near Dunnellon!

I've played that course twice now. The first time, like you, the course ate me alive. The last time we played, July 25th, it was pouring down rain here, but according to the radar, it was somewhat clear up in Dunnellon, so we took a chance. Had a great round going.  I was 1 over going into 11, and the sky's opened up. Lightning, rain coming down in buckets, all we could do was get a rain check, and head back home.  It is a great course.

I'm originally from Tampa, so I'll have to make a trip to play here when I get back down there.

Just outside of my distance limit for weekend golf, but thanks for the recommendation.  Sounds like a great course!

No problem!

I think we are going to try and make it a once a month go to course for our group. It's such a different atmosphere there and I wanna learn that course more for sure! It's about a 1hr 20 minute drive for us, how about you?

I absolutely love Juliet Falls. It's about 3.5 hours from my house, so I've only played it twice. Was just there in early August. Great layout and conditions. 

I pretty much fell in love with it as well right when I made that first turn around the corner when the practice greens come into view. For someone who's current home course will NEVER be in that kind of shape it was amazing..lol.

A little over 60 miles for us. About an hour or so, depending on traffic. I live on a golf course, so while I get out and play other courses, it's only a once or twice a month option. I belong to a group that travels to a different course once a month. Juliette Falls is on the list. Then I may get up there one more time for the year. Too many near by courses that are good.

Nice! We all live in a area that basically requires a 60 mile drive minimum to get to some quality courses in either direction. We are honed in on the Ocala-ish area right now, we plan to go play Stone Creek next and a few others maybe a bit further away as well!

Just came home about an hour ago from Ocala. We played SummerGlen. Not a bad course. I like Ocala National up there. I'm pretty centrally located. An hour to Ocala, Tampa, and less to Orlando area courses. Played the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes course, where they play the PNC Father-Son Tournament, last month. So many course, so little time.....

I live in Ocala so Juliette Falls is pretty close and I love playing that course, it’s definitely a good test and it’s always beautiful. As for Stone Creek and Ocala National, they are two of my favorite courses. Two totally different courses and both fun to play.

If anybody is in  the Ocala area, I would also recommend the Ocala Golf Club. I would consider it my home course and while it’s a muni and gets a ton of play, they keep it in really good shape and it’s a fun track.

    • At one of the qualifiers, I recall overhearing one of the announcers talking to a cameraman or some other and he was like, if you suck at math and science, you should be a reporter, it's a great gig.
    • A few years back Golf Channel actually televised a bunch of the sectional qualifiers (a best as they could) and I thought it was pretty cool.  Wish they'd do that again.  
    • I have no issues with it so I voted continue to allow.  I putt very conventionally so it makes no difference to me, but I kinda like watching the pros try to find ways to be innovative with their putters and putting style.
    • Hello Everyone Over the past 5-6 years ive had massive problems with full swing yips. I gave up playing mostly for the last 2-2.5 years, but im feeling an urge to get back playing. I used to be quite good, i got to a 2 handicap then started to play dreadfully with full swing yips.   Ive read some good psychology articles and books, but one thing ive been noticing whilst watching a bit of golf recently is the swings of certain players like Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brandt Snedeker are three in particular ive really noticed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOPZzpDYnMs If we take this example firstly, i know its a driver off the deck, but Phils swing starts with quite a pronounced "lift" upwards of the club and then he swings back freely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mD3C2jfBRR8 This is DJ in a taylormade promotional video. His swing again starts with a "lift" and then he swings back.   From a technical perspective, i dont know why they do this. But I notice from my own yips that ive really struggled to take the club back, and i cant start a swing at all. Ironically, i can chip and putt balls no problem though.   What i tend to experience is i want to push more and more weight into the ground, almost to the point the shaft bends, and i simply cant move the club back. It means i have no rhythm, no speed, and it throws the whole swing off. When i could play golf quite well i would swing a 6 iron at around 90mph. It would be 80 with the yips...if im lucky.   When i saw these swings that started with the club being lifted up and then swung, i kind of instinctively felt this might work as a swing thought to "start" the swing, the lift becomes the start of the swing.   What do you think about this? I can imagine it puts a reliance on hand eye coordination but i dont really care if the shots are bad, just so long as i can swing fast and not yip!   Thanks Everyone
    • I was talking to a Sr PGA Tour member and 4 time PGA winner 2 months ago and he mentioned that this would be the next big thing. He didn't have a big problem with it and thought it may extend a few careers. He did have an issue with anchoring and said that many guys still have a problem with Langer's non-anchored approach to the long putter. Interestingly enough he said he saw an elderly Sam Snead demo his illegal side saddle stroke and how he was lethal.  Personally, I don't have an issue with it, and honestly didn't have an issue with the belly putter either.
