Nice layout, nice scenery, quiet and peaceful. BUT - The greens were horrible, uneven and very bumpy. For the cost $50 , it was NOT a good deal and will NOT be going back.

Great Course, open fairways, great wildlife. We saw hawks and gators.

fun course to play for the average golfer. don't expect fast play or fast greens. the greens are overseeded in the winter and are very slow. however, this allows you to attack the greens with longer clubs. nice state park scenery. you may even see an alligator near the banks of one of the ponds.

Course had a beautiful layout and was in pretty good shape. The greens, however, were some of the slowest I've ever putted on. A decent value considering how expensive some of the courses in the area are, but the slowness of the greens made it difficult to make a putt outside of 10 feet.
