We played this municipal course 2 years ago and it was awful: dirt patches, crabgrass, dead grass, terrible greens. This year we tried again, after hearing that they had replaced the greens. The greens are nice, not great, but consistent. The grass around the greens...More

Played both the American and the British course. The greens were in great shape. Fairways were only fair but playable. Got to see some great wildlife including a few gators. I play this course every January. Very friendly staff also.

We played this course back in 2014 and it was superb. We played the British course a couple of days ago and were disgusted at the condition of the course. The fairways were like construction sites with big holes and no grass cover on them....More
