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.
