Geo-Fence Nightmare. These brand-new carts have GPS, GeoFence immobilization and non-stop warnings from the Pro-Shop about social distancing. Totally annoying when the cart sets off an alarm on your back swing for no reason. Got about 50 alarms for social distancing. The cart won’t let you get within 20 yards of any pond and certain out of bounds areas.
To bad because the course is well maintained and very challenging. But the carts make the course almost unplayable. Also, you have your typical Florida golf course fake out of bounds, when they build houses where there is supposed to be rough. I won’t go back, too much money for bad golf carts.

Nice course, the last 3 holes feel out of place. Overall nice course.

Excellent course, it has some very challenging holes. The greens were very nice. It is a top notch course. The US Open qualifier was held there this year, that says it all. We love this track. It is 5 STAR but for some reason it won't come out that way on rating scale.

The golf course was very nice. We waited on every single hole on the course. The rangers clearly have no clue what their role is or they do not care about pace of play. It was ridiculous! Also, do not get paired with the Mosely's.

Great course for a reasonable price. Played the much higher rated World Woods the day before - sorry I wasted my time. Should have just played Waterlefe twice! Fun course - but the mid - high handicapper will loose a few balls. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
