Challenging course with lots of spacious bunkers up, down & side hill lies. Greens usually are in good to above average shape. Lots of group tournaments are played here during the spring through early fall. Cost to play is high compared to surrounding public courses. Fairways are as hard as a brick due to lack of cultivation. Drinking fountains don't work. Restrooms tend to be scummy. Head Pro seems to not care about having repeat customers.
This ain't your average retirement community goat ranch. This course is long, challenging and fun. Generous fairways, deep bunkers, sweet greens and an all around good golf course. There's a full service restaurant and bar and if you stay late enough you can karaoke with the "locals". Try it, you'll like it.
I don't know why I skipped this course so many times. Very NIce layout with a lot of dog leg lefts. The condition of this course is very well maintained. I loved the layout and defintely would be back. Not a long course, but good none the less
A fine set of links spread out on rolling terrain chock full of sand traps and other "challenges" for the golfer. Carts are a big help as it is a long course.
In contrast to The Villages and other private communities, Carolina Lakes Golf Club is open to the public. Residents of this adult community pay green fees same as quests.
Most residents have their own golf carts, so they just pull up, pack up and play.
There is a pro shop and snack bar that offers meals and a full bar. We ate there a couple of times and it is very laid back and casual while being satisfactory as to quality and portions. Nothing fancy, just good.
Outside seating in clement weather.
