Fun cart loading, nicely greeted. Pro shop offered better deal with discount card. Failed to mention there was no restaurant. Would give credit for partial round when no lunch available. British course was muddy. Lots of muck. Greens in nice shape.

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.

I played the British course, which is only a way they differentiate between the courses. It is NOT a British-style course. Very wide open fairways, greens were smooth and fair, sand in traps was loose and not compacted. Not particularly challenging, but great for a...More
