Anthony (Orlando, Florida )
Course layout was great. Staff was courteous and informative.

Jerome (Vine Grove, KY)
The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club sort of broke my heart this year...played this course about 3 years ago and it was hands down the best course I ever played. Saved this course for our group finally, and my entire group concurred that the other 3 courses we played before this one was much better. The Ritz is still better than most, but just wasn't up to par on this day.

Play here every year and the conditions and service are what make us come back. The bunkers weren't in the best of shape- not a lot of sand in them, but the incredibly fast greens made up for it.

Jack (Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada)
We were disappointed with this course. All the hype about the PGA Father Son tourney being played there. Very woodsy and difficult for the average over 15 handicap player. Not sure if we would go back to this course.

Emilio (Venezia Italy)
Beautiful golf course, excellent maintenance, the path is immersed in a wild, very challenging, inserted within a beautiful Resort. Will come back.

Chris (Nova Scotia)

Garlon (TX)
Excellent track that is well run. The staff was exceptional and the course fun to play.

Michael (Franklin, PA)
Outstanding course in beautiful setting. Wish I played better on back side. Great clubhouse. Accommodating staff. Another must play for our group. Really enjoyed it!

Very slow play.Course was in ok shape. Good value.

Derek (Celebration)
As always the course was in exceptional condition and would recommend this course always.

Brett (Boston)
Course overall was in very good shape. Still a lot of dormant areas which I was surprised to see. Greens were excellent but a little crusty.

I.S. (Kingston ON)
First time playing here. Nice facility. Course is fair to all players.

Joseph (Hilton Head)
Club house restaurant was great. Course was in good condition, but set up to go out seemed very confusing.

Tom (Atlanta)
There is nothing bad you can say about playing the Ritz. The staff was great the course was in great shape and if you look at the discount rack you can get a shirt for under $180 :-)

Ian (London UK)
A wonderful and enjoyable golf course, condition and facilities 5 star would recommend you play it. Challenging but fair.

Best course in the area. Awesome condition - clubhouse staff (Steve) really took care of us. Scheduled to play 36, 2nd round got rained out. Set us up for another day w/out hesitation. Highly recommend.

Nye (Chesapeake, VA)
Course layout was challenging enough for sure, but it's fair. Good test for anyone.

Mark (Orlando)
When the pga has a father/son tournament here, you know it's a must play.

Everything was perfect.

Steven (Oakville)
Very good golf course. Found that you had to think about where your teeth shot needs to land. A very fair course for all golfers!

Jonathan (Barnsley, Uk)
Fantastic golfing experience! From arrival to departure we were looked after by friendly staff, both the clubhouse and course were first class.

We have played this course on numerous occasions and it is fabulous. Practice facilities are second to none with great staff. Course lovely with water coming into play on some holes. Condition great. We enjoyed chicken wings, and blue cheese dip with carrots and celery following our game. Delicious!

Peter (Cheshire UK)
Great course in very fine condition, quite slow but worth hangin in there. Will definately be back next year.

Nice course overall, greens were ridiculously fast and hard. We were told there was a US open qualifier there the day before. Entire resort, food were very nice and good. Would recommend.

A course that was challenging but fair. The staff were great. I would play this course again

Neil (winnipeg, Manitoba canada)
One word spectacular! Staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Will play anytime I can and it is a must to play.

Marc (Dorval QC)
Well designed golf course, has some fabulous holes. Playing conditions a1 Staff very accomodating and friendly. Good starter. Cuisine very good. Will be back

William (Glastonbury, CT)
Great course in fabulous condition. Typical FL course with lots of sand and water but one of the best conditioned courses we played. Great value from Tee Times USA.

Ken (MA)
Course was in good shape and layout is nice, but greens were a little too fast for players coming down from the north in the middle of the winter. Starter was a bit ambitious telling us we needed to finish in 4:05, but they didn't bother us when we finished in 4:45.

Outstanding. Like playing in a Botanic Garden. One of the best courses I have ever seen.

One of the Best you can play anywhere-Great practice facility to go with a 5Star Course.

Peter (Wolcott, Ct.)
Very nice course . Will revisit next year

Great track. Great Hosts

Russ (Ohio)
Course was nice and so were the fast greens.

John (Virginia)
Probably the toughest course we played all week, but well worth the challenge. We considered playing a second round but the course had a tournament scheduled for the afternoon.

Derek (England UK)
Course in great shape, staff very friendly excellent visit will come again,always a pleasure to play your great course.

Paul (Fredericton - CANADA)
The nicest course of the week. Quality of the whole experience was top notch. We were the first group to play and found we had all the time in the world. A little pricy but can easily understand the price. There were moments I thought I was playing on the

Bill (Pittsburgh - PA)
wonderful course. One of the best I ever played

Scott (Adams - MA)
Best course we played all week. Well kept - high quality. Layout was great...no homes lining the fairways. Definitly one we will play again and worth the money.

Ralph (East Sandwich - MA)
The reception staff was great - very nice pro shop - the course was in great shape and well maintained. The wait staff in the restaurant was unbelievably friendly and made our day complete.

Ken (Northbridge - MA)
Greens were perfect [fast but true]. Layout was fair. Blue tees [6 - 300] not a problem for mid-handicappers. Not worth asking price but reasonable with TeeTimes package price.

Steve (St. John'S - NLCANADA)
Make sure you go to the clubhouse. GPS will just takeyou to the hotel. Top notch course. Nobody playing the day wewere there. Top notch service. Beautiful layout. Very quiet forthe location. 4 1/2 stars

Logan (Airdrie - CANADA)
Absolute gem. Great service and world class golf course.

Graham (Penryn Tr10 8pb - UNITED KINGDOM)
What can one say about this course other than to say it is the best. The service - condition and value are second to non. Will certainly play this again.

Chris (Boerne - TX)
We were first off the tee and enjoyed our round verymuch. The name Ritz-Carlton delivered as usual and this is one ofthe nicest groomed golf courses I ever played. The course is waytougher if you move back on the tee boxes and changes the way thewhole cou
