BGC suffers from the typical Central Florida Muni syndrome; that is, the city runs the course by the bureaucratic nonsense that ruins most municipal courses. You do not have dedicated people to care for the course and many times the workers are from other areas of Parks and Recreation who are here just to cut the grass.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles
Bottom line: Worse than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

For the $25 18/cart you can't beat it. Very flat and plays easy with driver / wedge - 8I for most shots. Conditions are very good for a public course that see's alot of senior traffic but thats why I play early. Worth the money with the discount coupon.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area
