Always a pretty place to play it was diminished a bit today because they were sanding the greens today

(apparently part of their normal maintenance after veracutting[?]). Needless to say that wasn’t something I knew when booking nor at check in.

It was unfortunate that this course was the one available today. I heard the Flamingo course was fantastic. Unfortunately, the Mustang course has greens that had recently been aerated and top dressed. They also looked like they hadn’t been mowed the last couple of days. This was unfortunate because the rest of the course was in very good condition. Wish we had known or had the opportunity to play another course on site. This course needs a couple more weeks to heal.

Flamingo course. First tee time out, played in 2 hours. Greens were in good shape for July. Lots of bunkers make it challenging and lots of strategy to the course that you will learn after a couple rounds.

I really wanted to like Lely. It is a pretty course with interestingly shaped holes, sand traps galore and lightning-fast greens. Problem is I found myself playing around groundskeepers and resort workers mowing the rough, blowing out sand traps, trimming greens, tending trees — work carts and tractors were everywhere and kept getting in the way all day long. Noisy too. Add to that sprinklers going the 15th and 18th greens and the driving range closed for cleanup and it felt like I was golfing on a construction site. A distracting round on an otherwise likeable course.

Played the Mustang Course on a hot summer morning. Staff was very friendly and for $60 played on a championship course including Cart, Range Balls, and Green fees. Water stations and rest rooms were plentiful. The course is a very nice layout with bunkers and hazards in play but not super tight. Replay round was available for $25 . The beverage cart was available late morning on our back 9. I played the green tees at 6,700 yards but I needed to play various clubs off the tees due to the layout and made it fun to think around the course.

Course is laid out well it’s challenging. The courses in Lely resort however the houses and condos around this course do not come in to play or affect your line of sight which is very nice . The driving range was closed on the day I played due to excessive rain the night before they said how are the price was still the same even though we weren’t allowed to warm up at the range!

The course was in good condition, except the greens. They were hard as rock with sand on all. Impossible to get a pitch to hold ( at least for me and plying partners)

I played around noon an got around in 3 hours 30 , so quick enough.

Overall I find it overpriced at this pount if the year.
