Check in person needs to understand charges better. We paid partial price to Golfnow and balance to Falcon Fire. Our confirmation information said what was due at course and we were charged a higher amount. Clerk said we had to pay taxes to course, which I showed him taxes were already included in our total cost before paying Golfnow and that should reflect in what we owed at course. He insisted that he had to charge tax for purchase (although it was already covered in total cost) even while showing him we paid tax. After we got home and still frustrated by the way we were treated, reviewed credit charges and apparently the difference wasn’t for paying taxes but rather for an environmental fee per golfer. We have paid that at another course so understand but check in should have known this instead of saying additional tax.

I've been hearing about FF for years and read some of the recent reviews. I think they might have been at the wrong course. It reminded me of METROWEST right before they hit rock bottom.

You can definitely see where FF might have been a good course in the past but as of 9/16, that course is in serious need of some work.

Pros:

- Pace of Play (because it was empty)

- Layout

Cons:

- Conditions (Cut the grass),

- Greens were in poor shape

- Drainage problems in fairways

- Tee boxes were in poor shape

This course is definitely trending in the wrong direction. If you're a Floridian, anything over $20 is too much.

Lastly, it's no big deal but is certainly irritating when GOLFNOW tells you what you have to pay at the course and upon arrival, you here a different price. You will owe an additional amount over whatever your DUE AT THE COURSE amount tells you.

Course was in good shape given all of the rain over the last few weeks. Pace of play was slow.... The group in front of us were two holes behind. Their slow play had a negative effect on our enjoyment. This course should have a course ranger to keep things moving.

CPO today which was understandable. This course simply does not drain well. Overall track in nice shape. Greens rolled true, tee boxes and fairways were nice. Many traps flooded and being drained by grounds crew. Great value for the very fair resident rate.

Only big complaints are restrooms and property are not being maintained. Restrooms filthy and were the last couple times I played here. Trash in parking lots.

Had a blast at Falcon’s Fire. Favorite course in Central Florida for 20+ years.

Was a little disappointed at the end. Trying to finish before rain came in. Got to the 13th hole - me & my son playing as a twosome. Foursome in front of us with 2 holes open ahead of us. They should have been courteous enough to ask us to play through. Falcon’s Fire should have had a Ranger to enforce pace of play and encourage proper etiquette.

Got to 16 and it began raining. Played 16 & 17. Rain was too heavy to finish 18. We quit & went home.

Had there been a Ranger on the course, I believe we could have finished. It was only 1 hole so not really a big deal.

Just expected better from a course I’ve always loved & never had a bad experience at.

I have been wanting to play this course for a long time and Overall the course is decent but they have a serious drainage problem. Every trap was full of water and unplayable. I like playing out of bunkers but they all were lakes when we played. Fairways and greens were in good shape.

Rates were under $30 and conditions were great for that rate. Tee boxes were shaggy and greens had a few weeds but I'd play it again in a heartbeat. They advertise themselves as having "white glove service", but it's definitely not at that level. Prepare to be 100% satisfied with their customer service, but not blown away. Course layout was good, with a nice ratio of water and bunkers.

The tee boxes were a little chewed up, the fairways were in pretty good shape and the greens were good, with few bare spots, but a little slow and inconsistent.

Gorgeous course. Immaculately maintained. Just challenging enough, but not so much to drive you crazy. Highly recommend it. This is easily a $60-70 course for only $25-30.
