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 one 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.
