Played here 1/8/18 on a relatively cool cloudy day. Few sprinkles dropped on us but not enough to effect our golf. What can I say about Eagle Falls? Its one of my favorite course in the area and I am always pleased with the experience here. It has great layout and conditions are always in top notch condition. Bunkers could be little better but I'm really being picky here since I've gotten to play at Mission Hills Country club and their sand.
Customer service by the cart guys could use little improvement but not bad enough to deter you from coming to the course. These guys seem to want to be anywhere else but here. Proshop guys were cordial so no issues there. This is one of the course I always look forward to visiting and it never disappoint. Hopefully I'll get another opportunity in the future.

I played 1/9/2018 where no one else was out us 2. It rained the night before and little showers in the morning kept everyone away being cart path only. Public parking is pretty far away so we used the valet service. Practice area here is top notch and there is everything you need with plenty of space. Fairways were great shape with few water puddles here and there in the low lying areas which we took liberal free relief from. Rough is short but lush so it does grab your club if not swung with the acceptable descending club path. Only downside to the course is they have relative slow greens compared to the other 2 courses here. It's a fun layout and would have made it even better had the greens been fast. Course is very playable with variety of holes and some great risk and reward holes with challenging par 3's. Will look forward to playing it again next time I am back in town.

I played 1/5/18 and 1/6/18 at South course. I dropped off the bag at the front and promptly a staff came by and greeted us. Check in was smooth although the lady staff was little stiff on friendliness. The guy working there was lot more friendly. Driving range has plenty of room for large group of people to warm up but it was downhill lie so I didn't hit too many balls. Lots of room for putting and chipping so practice area here was fantastic. Unlike most desert courses, fairways aren't as generous so hitting straight tee ball is a premium at this course. Tee boxes were in good shape with nothing to complain about. Fairway was in good shape overall with few holes where it showed signs of flooding and balls picked up mud. #8 hole was fairly soggy and had some damage. Rough were brown and cut fairly low so you usually had good lie. There were some bare spots that played like hard pan. Now for the good part. This course has some of the most fun greens. There are lot of subtle breaks even at flat spots. When the pin placement was near the crown, it was very tough to putt. Putting can really make or break your round here. I didn't hit all that well but putted well and my score was significantly better than the previous day. All in all, I really enjoyed this course and will look forward to playing it again in the future.

This is one of the must play when you're visiting Orlando area. Most courses in Orlando area are very flat with lack of uneven lies, which makes the courses conducive to scoring. This course is not one of those courses. Club house and the properties near by are all themed after Italian Tuscany region and very picturesque. Course winds through hills and valleys with some of the most beautiful scenery, almost taking you away from US and into Italy. Course is brutally long so choose the right tees. We played from 4th tee box and it was all the challenge we could handle. From the moment we arrived to end of our round, we loved everything about this course and will definitely return to improve our scoring. They have Roman style bath house if you want to relax after getting beat up by the course.

My date of play was 1/22/17. If you ever need a little ego boost to your game, this is definitely place to come play. Condition here is immaculate so you will always great consistent lie and there are hardly any trouble so you can spray all over and still shoot a decent score. Only defense this course has is their green speed as their greens and fairways are mostly flat. Great place to come play for that first round to shake off the Winter rust for us northeners. Staff is always extra friendly so don't let them talk your ear off. Layout is somewhat boring since its repeat of same shot over and over again but if you're dialed in with one of your club, you may have your record breaking round here. Price is reasonable and pace of play is great since tee shots are playable from 99% of the golf course. If you enjoy a nicely manicured golf course that are easy to play, this is great place for it. It would make a nice place to learn how to play golf.

Wow, I can't believe no one else has reviewed this beautiful course. I was lucky enough to play here on 1/24/17 morning. Course has changed name and now its called Deer Island golf club. First off, this course is pretty far from Orlando and there is only 1 way in and out. It took us about 1 hour to get here but from local friend's recommendation, we had to come check it out for ourselves. This course is a true gem. If they had the private club money to maintain this place, it would easily be ranked in top 100 in US. Difficulty of this course is brutal on windy days. There are water hazards in play on almost every hole and any miscue can end up with lost golf ball. My local friend who is normally low 90's shooter lost 14 to 15 golf balls at this course on a windy day. Lay out is beautiful and price to play here is less than $50 for prime time. Course condition could use some improvement but its definitely playable and as long as you're not looking for country club condition, you will not be disappointed. Tee box, fairways, and greens are little shaggy. One thing I do want to put extra attention is their bunkers. Ones with abundant sand (some bunkers were rock hard with no sand) are very very very fluffy. Sand is more like a fluffy lava ash and your club goes through it with no resistance of any kind. I am a decent bunker player but could not get my ball out when the shot was longer than 10 feet from the hole. I recommend any player who enjoy challenging golf course to come and try this place as I will certainly try to go back and play it again.

I played on 01/25/17 afternoon. Eagle Creek is one of my go to places to play when visiting Orlando. Its not the fanciest place but its always consistent and playable with some hidden challenges. The day I played, course was packed with all the golf personnel flying in from every where for the PGA Merchandise show. This course is adjacent to famous Lake Nona so some of us call Eagle Creek, poor man's Nona. We got to play at 2PM for less than $40 each as out of towners. Customer service is usually great, just attentive enough but not hounding you for post round tips if you don't want the clubs cleaned. Tee boxes were slightly beat up and not cut down to usual lower manincured settings. Fairways and Greens were very firm and most shots rolled or bounced through but due to lot of roll, most approach shots were short irons so firmness didn't effect it as much as it could have been. During our mid round, we could see water being applied to greens and greens became more receptive as round wore on. Greens looked shaggy but it rolled faster than it looked and one of the hole, if you didn't make the putt, it rolled completely off the green and you couldn't get it within 10 feet of the hole. Our foursome all tried to putt is about 4 times and gave up and called it automatic 2 putts and moved on citing illegal pin placement. LOL. Signature hole at this course is #18 par 5. You must land your ball on an island green that is reachable in 2 but even if you laid up, your short wedge shot is no guarantee of easy par. Great part about this course is that its fairly close to Orlando International Airport so if you need to catch a flight post golf, this is perfect place to finish up your Orlando golf trip. Enjoy this course while rates are still cheap because its as good as the Disney Courses.

We played on 10/31/16. Last time I was here, I only got to play the front 9 due to rain storm, I came back to try it again. Front 9 is in decent shape and playable but back 9 fairways are like a mud filled rice paddy. This course is probably one of the best and most difficult layout but the condition of the back 9 just kills any motivation to play here more than once. Just in case anyone is wondering if my low rating is due to bad score, I shot 82 which is probably 5 to 10 stroke below what I would normally shoot here. As beautiful as the golf course is, tee shots that land even on the fairway has chance of getting lost due to being plugged. Any high flying shot is difficult to find unless you know exactly where it landed. My playing partner lost multiple golf balls that would not have been lost in most courses. Some areas of the rough have not been cut for weeks if not months and jungle grass is taking over. Greens are slow due to lack of manicuring. There was no one at the course that we saw playing and discounted rate of $100/person seem over priced for the condition. We enjoyed the beautiful views but I don't think we'll be going back ever until they can do something about the conditions. Which is shame since it really is very beautiful place. If you're looking to play just 9 hole, then this is a good place to come but bring your mud boots and lots of towels to clean yourself up if you're going to play the back 9.

We spent few days in Kauai and it rained every day in Princeville area but for some reason, it didn't rain at Poipu Bay. I played here on 10/27/16 so I apologize for the late posting of the review. This is one of the high end golf resorts on the island. Courses here aren't as good as other Islands IMO. While this course is good, it left me with desire of wanting little more from it for the price they charge. Customer service is top notch and I cannot emphasize enough how good they are. From the moment you park, they are attentive to your every needs including proshop staff. Driving range had plenty of spaces and they have attendants there who will take care of your needs and lets you know when you can head out for your round. There were few interesting holes but over all, I wouldn't consider this course a must play. I played courses on Oahu at less than half price of this course that were just as good. Tee boxes were good but there were plenty of places where grasses are yellowing and beat up which I don't expect at course of this caliber. Fairways overall were great but there were lots of brown spots. Some rough area needs some TLC although nothing was barren. Greens were medium fast downhill down grain but pretty slow overall. If I'm paying the big bucks to play course such as this, I expect more pristine condition and fast greens. Luckily, there were few beautiful holes with ocean view that satisfied us. Otherwise it would have been somewhat of disappointment. Overall, I enjoyed my round here in a very windy day but I probably will not go back for the price they charge. They do try to make up the short fall on the golf course with extra attentive staff who are customer friendly.

I was lucky enough to finally go back to Maui to play this beautiful course on 11/02/16 and following are my experience and opinions. Course is located in the Northwest of Maui just before the roads get narrow and mountainous. Its a beautiful area worth the drive up even if you're not golfing here. After making a turn into the course, you will drive up the long drive way up towards the hills and drop off your bag along the side of the road then drive just past the club house for the parking. Being high end place, staff will come and load up all your stuff. Driving range has room for about 20 people but usually that is enough since its rarely crowded. Tee sheet was fairly full but there was only about 6 people at the range including two from my group. 20 minutes before our tee time, we headed to the putting green for some practice. If you've never played here, that is the most important thing to do. Greens here are very tricky. It can be ridicously fast in 1 direction while other direction may be much slower. Breaks are difficult to read and 3 footers are tough to make. Many 3 and 4 putts are waiting her for those who aren't prepared. Now lets get to the course itself. We played from the Regular Tee which is around 6600 yds but it really plays more like 6100 yds due to all the long holes play down hill and any ball hit in the fairway rolls forever. Hind sight, we probably could have played one tee back and still would have been ok (I normally drive the ball around 225 yds). First hole is a short 4 but usually into heavy wind and landing area is blind. Aim towards the right side of the fairway if you don't want an awkward lie like me. I thought I hit the left side of the fairway but it rolled down to severe side hill slope and it felt like I had to swing sideways with the ball sitting up near my waist level. Thats my start tip to avoid big starting number. What is there not to like about this course. Tee box, Fairways, Rough, and Greens are all superb. Tee boxes are manicured to perfect square with very little divot damage. Fairways were consistently smooth and I didn't have one bad conditioned lie the entire round. I almost wanted to bring a nice hammock and just take a nap while walking the fairways barefoot. If you do hit into the rough, it does sit down majority of the time so you might want to avoid it unless you're into digging out golf ball from bermuda like grass. Fairways are huge so most people shouldn't have too difficult of time keep the tee shots in the fairway. Bunkers are in great shape with consistent texture and it was fairly easy to get out even though I couldn't get the ball to spin. There are 2 things that make this course difficult for us amateurs. First is the change in elevation. Course winds up and down so much that its hard to figure out what club to use. I used 6 iron from 190 yard out on one hole and on another hole, I used the same full swing 6 iron from 140 yards. Beauty of the scenery is breatht taking. Watching the golf course on TV or picture just does not do justice to the beauty of this course and area. Second part of difficulty is how severe their greens can be. My playing partner is a good putter and even he struggled. I had 3 holes in a row with 3 putts (10,11, and 12) and missed many putts inside 3 foot. I hit the ball well enough to break 80 but had 21 putts just in the back 9 made sure I wouldn't. I almost did my wedge putter due to bad putting. Johnny GK you know exactly what I mean. LOL. I shot 86 just in case anyone is wondering. Post round, they let us take the cart to the parking lot driving through narrow tetris like alley ways which was interesting. Both of us had great time playing this course while throughly enjoying the nature and all the long drives between the holes. I'm glad I got to play it this time but dropping $350 for a round of golf was little tough to swallow. For a once in a life time round, I say go for it.

I played here 9/30/2014. There were no bag attendant person so I walked down to the proshop area with my bag. Place was not very crowded so went to the range and warmed up after checking in. Pro shop staff were both very friendly and helpful. Practice putting green is so slow, its like putting from the fairway. I'd recommend practicing few short putts only. Luckily, the actual green was little faster. This course has lot of dog legs and drop off so tee shots are extremely important. Little too far off the tee and your ball is gone. It was tough to play mainly due to recent rain and course does not drain well. It was pretty much lift and clean condition. Not the fairest course and tee shots are optically very scary since you can't tell beyond the hazards. Of course when you actually go to your shot, you find out there is lot more room. I was only able to play the front 9 before the heavy rain came through. Will be heading back tomorrow to play the back 9 if the rain doesn't come back. Will post photos of the course after the 2nd half. This is very challenging course and those who don't mind the difficulty, absolutely come and try it out. Even if you don't score well here, you'll still enjoy the beautiful rain forest / mountain view scenery.

I played on a 100 degree day so there weren't lot of people out. Attendant came and picked us up from the parking lot and helped us check in. They are very attentive. After hitting few balls on the range and few chips and putts, we headed out. It was good to be back and see the course fully recovered from all the green issues of the past. Greens are kept little longer than I'd like but all the burnt out grasses have fully recovered. Bunkers they were working on has been completely filled with new sand. Its once again back to its glory days. Its little hot out there now but its still one of my favorite course and its always a treat to play here. Majestic views, green grass in the middle of the mountain canyon and desert along with elevated tee shots makes this course a must play.
