Course Reviews


Review from The Golf Course Guru, www.thegolfcourseguru.com

I heard great things about Polo Trace. ”A hidden gem!” I was told. ”Three straight par 5's – crazy!” And then I went to the course’s website. ”One of South Florida’s premier golf courses!” Ok, I added that last exclamation point for fun. Point is, based on the hype, I didn’t blink when I was asked to plunk down $79 to play Polo Trace. I did, however, raise an eyebrow when I read that the rate jumps to $119 during peak season. That’s double what two other courses I enjoy in the area – Osprey Point and Westchester – charge. So I expected some sizzle. Some bells and whistles. A departure from the usual average Florida course (wide open, palm trees, housing communities…you know the drill). Boy, was I disappointed.

The three par-5's in a row is kinda cool. The course is a challenge, I’ll give it that. Greens and fairways were just fine. But start-to-finish, you do not get what you pay for at Polo Trace. We were greeted by an unfriendly, unhelpful attendant in the Pro Shop, who apathetically grunted that it was a ridiculous $10 to buy a driving range token. No other options. Strike 1. Then our token got STUCK in the machine at the range. Strike 2. We had to race back to the Pro Shop and argue for our money back (we won), but never got to hit any balls. All this stress before we even put a tee in the ground (and not surprisingly, our first drives ended up in the water). Strike 3. By the time we hit the turn, I had lost two boxes of balls (I told you the course was tough), and was too numb to fight my overpriced, soggy $12 tuna sandwich (Strike 4?).

I wanted to give this course 0 stars but the system will not let me. If you like mosquitos then this is your course. If you like clumps of cut grass simply laying in the rough and "fairway then this is your course. If you like over-priced golf, then this is your course. If you don't like sand in your bunkers, then this is your course.If you like 6 hour rounds, then this is your course. If you like a well maintained course, with a friendly staff and a good price, then this is definetly NOT the course for you. Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website, that is NOT the course you will be playing.

Expensive for the area but a great course with GPS carts.

One of the only links courses in the state of Florida. Public course that will make you forget you're not a member. I'd say its probably within the top 3 most challenging courses in the state.
