The cost of play was $31 and for this I got terrible conditions. The greens were anything but! I have never played such poor greens. The fairways were playable but again in awful condition. The sand traps were anything but as they had more green in them than some of the greens! I spook to the person in the pro shop about my disappointment and all he had to say was that he agreed the course was in terrible condition but offered no refund or anything other than a blank stare. I will never play there again

I know this course was recently sold and it shows. Horrible condition. Long grass, really bad greens and sand traps are either lakes or hardened over with weeds. No way I will be playing here again. Lost more balls to long grass than I care to admit.

As a member, and resident who lives on the course, I find the conditions to be totally embarrassing and unacceptable. Mother nature is doing her best to keep the course in playable condition with daily showers, but those will soon be diminished. The fairways are in pretty good shape, overall, but there are some spots near the greens that are turning to hardpan. The greens, once lush and quick, are slowly starting to deteriorate. All the green side bunkers, and many of those in the fairway, are devoid of sand and are now full of weeds. They all should have a white line painted around them and identified as Ground Under "dis" Repair!! The rough is horrible. With the limited number of maintenance personnel, and the amount of rain we're getting, they have no chance to keep up with proper mowing. The new owner, Park Square, has done nothing to improve the condition of this once proud course. Based on the fact that there are still only 5 maintenance personnel, some of whom have been here forever, and the equipment fails on a regular basis, its doubtful that the owner has any intention of making improvements. I'll be interested to see what happens if the equipment lease expires this coming December. The grill is closed so there is no real opportunity for a post round libation. The beverage cart operates regularly, but with limited inventory. The staff is friendly and courteous, but most often there is only one employee handling everything from booking and check-in, to cart retrieval and all other outside services duties. Sad to See!

Our threesome lost more than a dozen balls in the fairway rough. Some balls that hit in the fairway and rolled off could not be found. Sand traps have no sand, just weeds. Some greens had virtually no grass.

This was our first time playing Hunters Creek and we won't return until we read they have improved their maintenance. There are just too many great courses in the Orlando area to be frustrated by this one.

Interestingly, there were plenty of golfers playing when we were there. They must hit every fairway and green!! We found more balls than we lost while looking for our shots, but on most courses we would have been able to continue to play without spending time searching in the super long grass.

Course conditions had been getting a little better earlier in the summer at Hunter's, but lately it's deteriorated again. Greenskeeper needs to do something about the greens. Other moderately-priced courses in the area have drastically improved their greens while Hunter's hasn't done much with them.

Tee boxes are in bad condition, lots of tree debris on the roughs, bunkers are now more just like huge grassy dirt holes. Though the food cart attendant is very friendly, they don’t offer variety. This once great course is severely hurting and don’t see it lasting much longer provided it continues to be ran that way. Quite honestly its a shame to see where its gone. Very conveniently located however there’s better options available for not that big of a rate difference.

I've played here a few times and the conditions are always very good, the greens were also running nicely. The bunkers aren't being maintained and I'd say it's due to Covid-19 so it's understandable. The course is tight in spots so you need to keep them straight.

Calling this a cow pasture is an insult to cow pastures. They literally must be joking calling this a golf course. Pace of play was great as nobody was out there. I wouldve given staff some stars but only person was doing it all, pro shop, carts etc. This has gone from a great place to play to total crap. Dont see this place ever coming back...too far gone. Can't believe other reviews were 3's. Fairways garbage...rough nothing but 8 inch crab grass, bunkers are combo grass / sand. ...GRAND
