Course Reviews

I'm not a very good golfer. I took it up less than a year ago, but do play alot. This is my favorite course. Its across the street from the ocean, so gets a nice breeze during the hot summer. Greens are good. The Indian river borders the west side of the course, and there are several fairways that go down towards the river, I love that. Have seen a few alligators, and lots of birds and wild life. Great people working there, I have not had the experience of poor customer service that other reviewers mention. Some hard holes, many easier holes. Its relatively shorter than a full course, with just one par 5. Not terribly expensive, and rarely crowded. I have also not had the problem of not getting a T time as others write. Perhaps they are used to private courses, this is a public course and there is no one to clean your clubs or otherwise hold your hand and kiss your you know what. Great, very large practice green with bunker to practice out of sand. I really enjoy it every Sunday, and stop by to practice once or twice a week.

Visited the course at the start of my vacation and was made to feel so unwelcome by the rude staff that I did not return to play!

Great short course if not for the rudest people when trying to book tee times. Somehow even 1 minute after 4pm 3 days in avance, tee times are already booked for early times.

Great Course

Congratulations to Wendy Watson (my mother) on her first hole-in-one at Spessard Holland Golf Course, Indialantic, Florida. Using the 7 wood on the 142 yard 4th hole, the 21st of February. She taught me everything she knows and I'm scatch gofer!

The Ocean Breezes and River Views

Situated on the barrier island in the town Melbourne Beach, Spessard Holland is a delightful 18 hole challenge with some very beautiful views. The first 3 Holes are relatively unspectacular, but do provide some nice challenges if you don't hit the fairways as low palm trees offer challenges out of the rough. The holes situated at the back of the course look out over the Indian River and offer a unique backdrop for the game. Though warm during the summer, this course gets a cool ocean breeze constantly which keeps the players relatively cool. Make sure you hydrate though, as the sun can really beat down during the midday. Due to recent hurricanes, the clubhouse has been remodelled and looks really good. Plenty of water and sand give this course a challenging edge and it is often required that the player make good shots off the tee, as opposed to long shots, which can easily find water. Overall an enjoyable experience, at a reasonable value. $20.00 midday during the summer with an electric cart. Not too shabby.
