It was quite wet but we knew that going in and were reminded at pro shop that a rain check was available if it was too wet. Very quick pace of play and greens were in pretty good shape especially considering the rain we've had.

Due to covid19, I have only played twice in the last 5 months...both at the Fairways. Precovid I probably played here 10-12 times a year. It is a tight course with lakes and water in canals on 15 of the holes...accuracy is way more important than distance as many of the fairways are narrow and the greens relatively small on some holes. In the heat of the afternoon, I did not even see another golfer while I was playing so got around in about 2 hours. There are no wind sheilds on the carts so that is a big problem during storms. The course is good for beginners or average players...big time players who play the expensive courses probably would not like it.

Absolutely never going back to this course again, even if it was the only course in town. I’d drive to the next town just so I wouldn’t have to go to this terrible course ever again. Enjoy the locals, they really like having you there, NOT.

I'm 71, retired, and play once weekly with a work buddy who's a bit younger and not yet retired. We play courses that are local and not too long as neither of us has the distance we once had. This course is only about 5300 yards long but it is definitely quite challenging. It's routed through a manufactured home senior and retiree community and the fairways could use some drainage reworking as in the hot, rainy Florida summer some areas have the consistency of a soaked sponge, lots of casual water. When things dry out in the fall through spring, you can get a lot more roll on shots but summer and the lack of drainage on some fairways will stop your shot quickly. Oddly enough, no matter how much it rains, the greens drain really well and are very quick all 4 seasons of the year. Putting can be quite adventurous as a straight in putt is something you may not see on any hole; par is an excellent score. There are a lot of water hazards and the woods along some holes are thick, so if you have trouble keeping your shots straight, bring enough golf balls. Due to soggy fairways on some holes, many play as cart path only so beware where the path is routed.

Off course amenities are virtually nonexistent at this time: the course was closed for 6 weeks or so when the Covid pandemic was announced and the clubhouse is closed except for the window that the clubhouse clerk opens when you check in and pay. You can buy a soft drink or beer, but there is no cart girl so be sure to either bring or buy sufficient drinks for staying hydrated. The pace of play is usually pretty quick since traffic here is minimal. But, all in all, it's a fair test for the price. I'm just waiting for the fall when it will be not so unbearably hot.

This course charges each player $10.00 extra for social distancing even though you've paid for greens fee and cart online. Needless to say, I won't be playing there anymore.

Thank you for playing, we appreciate your business. We try to be as transparent as possible with our cart procedures throughout the tee time booking process. We also attempt to accommodate all request without charging a surcharge if the demand for play allows. We are happy that we were able to accommodate your request and everyone else that day without charging the surcharge as we had extra carts available. The procedure is in place so we can accommodate all players with golf cart usage.

We recommend calling the Pro Shop prior to your round and letting us know your preference of a single rider cart. We will communicate whether we will have to charge the surcharge for the day you booked.

Stay safe!
