Didn't actually get to this course but beware, even though we cancelled the reservation through the golf shop, they still charged me.

The new greens have stayed immaculate. They had a Ranger out pushing the pace. It was a good experience the next phase will be to clean up the fairways and county will be looking like it used to. I also like the fact that they finally made the double green between four and six to separate greens !

The course was going through remodeling It was a long walk from the parking lot to the pro shop no one was there to greet us to take our bags. I had my 15-year-old daughter with me to ride along they wanted to charge for her to ride along. Needless to say, I canceled my tee time and requested a refund went to Woodlands where they didn’t charge for the ride along. Plus, they were much more friendlier than Colony West.

So glad to see this course coming back. The layout is one if the best by far in South Florida. The new greens are still very firm but roll very well. They are country club quality and funny to putt if you don't mind an occasional three putt. Looking forward to the finished product.

Again, today we booked a tee time a few days ago , arrived and we joined again with a man who just showed alone up to play. Although , I understand for timing this works for you it makes me crazy. Why , if we book as a twosome would we want play with a single,guy who could care less about playing with us. It always ruins my round as a women..

It happens everywhere often once a week. There was a couple behind us that got to play alone should we be rude and say no next time? This situation needs to be addressed by golf now and the clubs who use them to fill their coarse.

first time to play this course. The greens are super fantastic...looks like some money was put into them in the last 6 months. New clubhouse is being built for the course, will like to come back and play again with new club house. The fairways were ok, could use some work, but with all the other activiites, understand why they are just ok.

Greens and bunkers in very good condition as they were just redone over this last summer.

Fairways were disappointing with a few being just plain bad.

The truncated 18th hole was disappointing. I hope that's not permanent.

Construction will be ongoing for the better part of 2 years I understand. That has made parking a nightmare. Restroom facilities are nasty porta potties at the "clubhouse" area. (a trailer.)

That said, I like the layout and have always been treated well here. I will continue to play here now and again as usual.

Very hard course. Be sure to have an extra sleeve of balls or two. Holes 10 and 18 shortened due to irrigation issue. Parking is a challenge due to construction. Fairways okay but greens are in great shape. Overall not a bad course. Will be playing again for sure.

Annoying construction. Some staff act like they're the police. Course and greens in poor shape. No trash cans and maybe 1 bathroom. Maybe when construction is complete it will be better. Kudos to the GM though. A fine gentleman.

We have played here before and where shocked to arrive to such a mess.

Thirilled, after we found parking to see the coarse itself had already been

ungraded . It was very good . People nice as always and will go back.

Got rain and lightning on the 13th hole so not happy with that but weather.
