Difulcult but forgiving. Played recently, April 2013, the course is in very bad shape.

I was looking forward to playing this "old time" course where Snead played. We show up on time, at the box 1 min before our round. We have to wait 15 because they're backed up. On the 4th, the ranger tells us to hurry up. On the 5th, he tells us to play from the golds because we're slow. At that point, we are on track for a 3 hour 50 minute foursome round. We tell this to the ranger and he smugly says "the guys behind you play in the 70's and this is my yard so move it". I may not be a great golfer, but give me a break!
We finished the round in 3 hours 45 minutes, and his "yard" plays next to sewage treatment plants with horrendous cart paths and fairways. Looked like someone drove on some greens and peeled out. If you're gonna treat your non-members like crap, make this dump private. I'll be happy to play one of the numerous courses around that are much nicer and have better managed and maintained facilities.

I've played several courses in the area in the $15-$30 price range (Rolling Hills, Wekiva Springs, Magnolia Plantation, & Rock Springs Ridge) and this place is my favorite due to the beauty, condition, staff, and fun factor. The course is over 90 years old (see their website), designed by famous old-school designer Donald Ross, and it's much different than any courses in the area. It's a healthy mix of links-style with some trees and dog legs thrown in to make sure you don't forget you're in Florida. The course was very lush and green, even though it has been a little dry lately, which was a surprise. The way the holes are laid out, from tee to 200 yards is completely wide open, but then the trees start to ensure you're honest. So when you're standing on the tee box, you get to see the beautiful surrounding holes and don't have to worry about hitting down a tight tree-lined fairway like most courses. I also liked being able to see the other greens and golfers from most places on the course without feeling clustered at the same time; I get bored just looking at trees and houses on every hole, so this was a welcomed variation. While there's not a lot of water or OB, you still have to hit quality shots or you'll be playing from the trees or having to hit over/under them to get to the greens. There were some subtle elevation changes that also was a surprise; a blind tee shot over and down a hill was fun, as well as teeing off from on top of the hill a few holes later. If you're looking for a super-challenging course that's real long, look elsewhere but I rather enjoyed hitting shorter irons, bump and runs, and reaching par 5s in 2. The staff was also very friendly and even picked me up in a cart in the parking lot when I pulled in and told me a little bit about the course while we rode to the clubhouse. The only bad thing I can say is 2 holes had some sand on the greens, and some of the greens were a little bumpy giving some inconsistent rolls, but if you can get passed that then this course is a must while in Central Florida.

We played the course on 02/02/10 after 2 days of torrential rain. We'd heard some bad press on the place and were beginning to question our decision to play there. Being here on vacation from Binghamton NY however, we'd have been happy for anything without snow on it. We were pleasantly surprised at the conditioning of the course. The fairways and greens were better than anything we'd played up to this point on our trip (Magnolia Plantation, Dubsdread, Lake Orlando). There is alot of history on this course and it's worth reading on their website. Beautiful old oaks line some of the fairways and can block you out if you really spray it. There's a little water that comes into play in the way of forced carries, but for the most part, the course is devoid of any major hazards. The bunkers were clean and raked, and the greens were in nice shape (small to average size-and ALL elevated). The fairways appeared to have been overseeded and were fairly dense considering the time of year. Length is not this course's major defense, but a couple of the par 3's were in the 185 range from the white tees. The clubhouse had a bar/grille and the pro-shop had the basics. The only disappointment was the gas powered carts and lack of cart paths.

Played this course the last couple of days. I had the misfortune of playing this course before the new owners took over. This course is leaps and bounds ahead of where it was, the greens are greeen the fairways are lush and the dirt patches are a thing of the past. The staff was friendly and the course is wide open and fun. One of the best values in this area, if you get a chance get out and play this course. Value and condition make this a top pick for this area. A low score is almost a given! Dont forget to stop in and look at the clubhouse what a change.

Played the course yesterday for the first time in about 3 years. Really impressed with the turn around the course has made. The new managment has really made some nice improvements. The course used to be nothing but dirt and weeds. Now the weeds are gone, the fairways are in great shape, and the greens are looking good. Best value in seminole county.
The clubhouse has made a complete 180*. It used to be just a bar, no food, and it smelt like cigarrette smoke. Now you can actually call it a resturante. The food was great and the staff was friendly.
I look forward to seeing more improvements in the future.

Played yesterday. PLease keep in mind this is one of the oldest courses in Florida. Range facility is very small (160 yards). The course is in good conditions. Nice fairways, Greens are a bit slow, but in good condition. Easy course to play and spend time with the kids. Not a lot of water. The price is right...too!

Reviewed August 08, 2009

All I know is that if the Mayfair I played is the new and improved version then I would hate to see what it used to look like, because the course is in pretty horrible condition right now.

The warm up facilities are garbage. A 150 yard driving range where you hit off of dirt. A pratice green the size of my bathroom, and a bunker with sand that has probably never been raked.

The course itself is in horrible condition. I've never putted on greens so slow. Most courses I play the ball goes 6 to 10 paces with a stance wide putting stroke, but here my ball only went 3 paces. Don't even get me started on how bumpy and poorly maintained the greens were.

I played great, but this course was so bad that even that wouldn't save the experience for me. They should just bulldoze the course and tell everyone to fork out the extra cash and go to Timicuan around the block.

Great course. Very well maintained. Greens are nice and fast. New management must have improved course alot (see older reviews). Wide open fairways (bring your driver). Lots of old oak trees makes for nice scenery. Not many houses on course. Club houses are older buildings (1920s) which gives it a vintage look. Good food and service. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to pay about $30 and play a nice course.

Great course to play, at an unbelievable value.
It is a pleasure to play an older course, with majestic oaks, and fairways not lined with homes, and condos.
Great staff, and food. It is a "must" play for anyone in the area.

This a very playable course. The staff are extremely attentive. The food is great! all of the facilities have been upgraded. A lot of money has been poured into Mayfair & it shows. This is a great value. Mayfair is improved threefold since early 2007.

I have been a vocal critic of the condition of Mayfair in the oast. Under the new management Mayfair is now in the best condition in the last 3 years. Not only have drastic improvements been made to the course, much needed improvements have been made to the Clubhouse and restrooms. The course is now a pleasure to play and I am confident it will keep improving.

I played the course back on Mmeorial day weekend. I found it to be absolutely horrilble. From the facilities to the course, even thr restrooms were undesireable. I played the course today ( Thursday December 6, 2007 ). And found it to be Fabulous, The Golf Course, The facilities, Restrooms, Personell, And the food was equally as great. The new owner Mr. Steve Phillips, and staff. Have done a wonderful turnaround in a very short period of time. The Locals tell me I'ts only been six weeks! Truly one of this seasons best experiences you won't want to miss.

This place has gone from bad to horrible

You'll want to skip this course. 6 months of standing sewage in toilets that don't work. Dirt fairways from never watering. Dead greens full of bugs, tire marks, and weeds. Sand traps loaded with weeds, never groomed, packed dirt. Owner is taking in money and putting none of it into the course. Full rates are charged. They blame the city for water restrictions that don't exist.

Save your money. This course should have been closed a year ago when it was just a bad course.
