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!

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

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.

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.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day.
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
