The course was in very good shape except the greens, except #17, were very very slow. It almost looked like they had not been cut or rolled in a while.

The course is a very fun friendly layout. Our greens are getting prepared to undergo complete renovation in a couple weeks. We will have all new greens by next season. Can't wait to see you then!

Great layout, good conditions except the greens. Slow, bumpy, not pleasant.. pace of play was ok today but there is a tendency to be overbooked., therefore could be slow play. Heard that will redo all greens, good news.

We are glad you loved the layout. We have a relaxed fun vibe. Our greens are undergoing a major renovation in just a couple weeks this summer. The new season will start with brand new greens in the fall. Can't wait to see you again soon!

We try to be very accommodating and friendly here at the Nash. A four hour pace is always our goal but it can get slow when that Florida sun is shining. Everyone wants to be in South Florida early spring!

Couldn’t have enjoyed my time anymore than I did.

Yeah, the greens could have been in better shape in some parts, but the rest of the course was really well taken care of.

** And most of all, every person I talked to or dealt with, from the tiki bar people (super reasonably priced food and beer) to the marshalls out on the course, especially Adam, were obviously there to enhance our experience.

My round was under 4 hours, even with my multiple tee balls hit on 6 holes, and it played extremely fair and rewarding.

Thanks to Adam and the crew, I will definitely be back.
