This course recently changed hands. Now owned by the same group that owns Sabal Trace in North Port. That's not necessarily a good thing. Last time we played Sabal Trace it was in a sad state of disrepair, esp the greens.

Duffy's [can't remember new name] still needs a lot of work. They did overseed the fairways which makes them look nice, but underneath is about a dozen different varieties of grass and weeds. Greens pretty bad. This is as of about a month ago. The only thing they really have going for them is price, but you get what you pay for.

Don't let the name fool you. Duffy's has a great mix of par 3 holes. You will hit every iron in the bag and probaly a driver or 3 wd on long par 3. The 4's are mostly a drive and a short pitch. The greens roll decently and the bunkers are well maintained. Their twilight rate (after 3 pm or so) is low. The back nine is lit for night play and one can play 9 w/ a cart for $15, $10 on some nights-Sat, Sun, Mon at last report. Has an aquatic driving range, a large practice green and a short game area with practice bunker. Good value and decent golf experience. They have a Thurs evening skins game under the lights. A twosome can get round in way under 2 hours when play is slow like summer.
