After booking and reading recent reviews, we were pleasantly surprised by the conditions of the course. It looks like the new owner has the course trending in the right direction. Course conditions were excellent and the old Donald Ross design a bonus over the negative reviews from 2016. Tees, greens and fairways were in great shape. I would recommend anyone who played the course a couple of years ago come and play it now. I believe you will be more than surprised by the changes. We will be back in a few days because of the conditions and the excellent service of the staff. I recommend this course to anyone in the Orlando/Kissimee area.

Stuck our group of 36 in the middle of a women's and men's collegiate tournament. It took 3 hours to play 3 holes because we had to keep letting the women play through. All 36 of demanded a replay and the shouting started. The older gentleman behind the counter had words with several of our group before finally giving us the replay..

He would not play this course again.

We read the reviews on line and saw good ones, but when we got there the course is in poor shape. The tee boxes were not mowed, greens are just about lost, not sure if they could get them back. Fairways were in average to below average. Save your money!

Prior to playing Lake Wales I had read that the course was not in good shape, that was an understatement. The front 9 was closed for rehabilitation, which I truly hope works. The back nine was in such a state of disrepair it made me question is it was a golf course or a grazing pasture. There was no grass on the tee boxes and most of, what would be, the fairway areas were infested with weeds. The greens were absolutely horrible, if you could call them greens. The sand traps were more dirt traps then sand traps. On the plus side, this was my first visit to this track and being that it is a Donald Ross design I could see that the course was once a beautiful and fun track. Hopefully the ownership will bring this gem back to the condition that I am sure it once was. Until then I won't be back.

Course is trying to get rid of bentgrass, so greens are suffering. When things get back normal, course will be a classic, again.
