This was not a fun course to play. Just too tough for the average golfer. I'm a 12 handicap and it was very difficult. The greens are very difficult due to different levels and mounds. You must be on the right level or your cooked. And that level is usually small and when I played they were very hard to hold.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I won't play again, I wouldn't recommend this course, Any price would be too much for this courses

This golf course is not worth the price in season. The greens are awful with mounds, humps and bumps. What was Jack thinking? Very difficult for the average to good player. Bring lots of extra ammo. Slow play because of difficulty. I live nearby and would never go back unless the club lowers its pride considerably. Not fun.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I won't play again, I wouldn't recommend this course, Better courses for less nearby, Expensive, but not worth it

The green conditions were OK at best. Certainly not up to the rack price of $179. The layout was outstanding.

This is a very good Nicklaus Signature layout. It is far inland and away from the hustle and bustle of the typical area courses. No homes on the course and a feel of being deep in the Everglades. More interesting layout than almost all nearby golf courses. They were still operating out of a very nice but temporary clubhouse. The greens here are very undulating. My opinion is a few need to be recontoured as they were nearly unputtable. Peaks of some of the undulations do not hold water and tend to burn. Overall the most challenging and un-Florida like layout in the area. Read my review at golfsliced.com.

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