I just recently joined this Country Club and I absolutely love it. I have played about 12 rounds there in the past month. The staff is incredible and the club amenities are great!
It is extremely walkable, my longest round was completed in just over 4 hours. The fairways are overseeded with Bermuda in the winter, so they are as green as anything in South Florida right now! Every member takes care to replace/fill in divots in the fairways and fixes ball marks on the green. I gave this course an 8 out of 10 for a couple of reasons. They have two temporary greens that will be gone by March/April -- still some of the best temporary greens I have ever seen. They are changing the two greens from Poana to Bent, in order to match the other greens on the course. The only other reason I took off a point was that -- to be as unbiased as possible -- it just isn't as "nice" as what a championship course would look like.
Overall, it is an excellent course. Very playable for all skill levels, there are only 2 ponds that come into play which are on holes number 9 and 18. Out of bounds is located on the left side on holes 6, 7, and 8 and again on the left side on holes 10, 11, 12 and 13. Other than that, you can pretty much find -- and play -- your "missed shot" from anywhere on the course.
