I called the Pro and he said I would not find a more well-maintained course and he was absolutly correct. Everything about this course was perfect. It looked like someone had gone around the entire course with a pair of handshears! Wonderful course, well laid out and challenging. I would recommend it 300% - it is on the top of my list for courses in central Florida. Play it, PLay it, Play it. We played to a bit after dark and the crew greeted us with a smile and even asked if they could wipe down our clubs. Most other course, are out trying to PUSH you to finish and get real nasty if you play even close to dark. I want to play it again and again and after you play this course - you will want to write a positive review too!

I enjoyed playing here. The fairways were outstanding. The sandtraps were well manicured and with interesting cuts. A better set of hole layouts would be helpful for first timers.

not worth the money

Wonderful course long I mean long if you hit from the black tee's they have green,blue,white and red. Surrounded by nice new homes but they are way off the course. Lots of the white stuff no water. Second time played this course they just opened after being closed for a week for reseeding. Man if I only had a lawn like their fairways....Green you haven't seen green before. The staff super across the board. They want you to have fun! This course opened in 2005 don't miss this one....

Very nice course, greens, fairways, and rough all in excellent condition. A very fair course, with plentiful bunkers and the narly bermuda rough. If you can bear the heat, pretty reasonable summer rates, especially with the summertime play card

Nice course but not worth the money

This is a decent course with good length and alot of sand traps. Unfortunately its not all that challenging. If you have deep pockets by all means play this course at least once, if you want the best bang for your buck, there are better courses to be played in Ocala
