Not a bad day of golf but if this is considered their premier course in needs a lot of work. For the price I would expect the greens to be in better condition. Pace of play was good but there is no grill or restaurant at the turn or 19th hole. Head to the Ale house when you finish it’s right outside the gate.

Priced in the range expected in Orlando. Convenience made playing this course a good idea on our last day in Orlando. The greens were smooth but colored to make them appear greener than they would otherwise be. enough challenge on the course to test you but sufficient ways to play around the difficulties. Long and wide enough to make using the driver a good idea. Nice place to play without driving too far.

No amenities at the club house - could not even get a cup of coffee. Practice tee and balls in sad shape....Not sure where the challenge is with this course. Was told beverage cart had everything when asking about drinks. We did not see the cart until the 7th holes. Can't believe this has Palmer's name on it.

Worst greens I’ve played on in a long time. Greens are rock hard, like trying to stop a ball on a pool table. Yes the greens are fast but that’s only because they are hard sand with very little growth on them. Not worth the money, play Providence for less money and the greens great.

If you’re visiting the area looking to play golf, this is not a good “only play once” course. There are so many hidden ponds that even when you hit an incredible shot, you’ll likely walk over the fairway mounds and find you’re all wet.

Now, if you’re staying local and plan on playing a few times, then it might be worth it.

The other downside is the postage stamp size greens. I mean, I’m on vacation! I like a little larger greens and something I can actually hit. I’m an 8 hdcp and I must have putted 8 times from just off the greens. Very frustrating to have a great approach shot turned into anger.

Just my thoughts.
