Great value. Unique layout. Consistent speed on the greens. Course knowledge is at a premium. Bring a range finder and drive up to check out blind shots.

I’m not going to sugar coat this but the course is in horrible condition. When you can’t tell the difference between the fairway and the rough you have a problem. When the middle of the fairway is thick and large patches of crab grass you have a problem. When the tee box is thicker then the putting green you have a problem. When the green is as hard as concrete and looks like a slab of concrete you have a problem. I get it’s a cheap rate and out in the middle of nowhere but this course has a lot of good potential. It’s on a waterski resort and I’m not gonna lie the course layout is beautiful and challenging and fun. But the maintenance of the course is possible the worst I have ever seen. I won’t play there again until the course improves greatly and if you manage to do that raise the price to like $40 and just maybe I’ll come back and play there again.

Exactly! The 3rd hole was closed in the fairway due to water. And the greens were horrible. Lots of dark bare spots. They need a serious update of the course and if that happened I would pay to play there again.


Commented on 10/14/2020

Thanks for the update. The last time we played there, 3rd hole had a lot of water spots and that was early 2019, it was horrible. For the money they're asking - no way!!!

Always like playing here when we are in central FL. Fun seeing the water skiers as you play. Greens wet ok and fairways were decent but not mowed well in some areas. Some very unique holes that are fun to play.

My buddy and I play this course about once a month. It's a great course for the price but you get you pay for. Fairways aren't well maintained, grass needs cut more often and too many rough patches throughout. Greens are rough and need cleaned up and smoothed out. Pace of play here is usually pretty fast since it's not usually that busy.

Staff was friendly. Played weekday at 9: 00 am. Very few on the course. Played by myself in 2hrs. 15 min.

Golfnow price was incredible. Weather has been wet, but conditions very playable. Greens well kept and ran smooth

Fairways and roughs I would rate very playable. Overall, would recommend playing Swiss Fairways.
