Featured Golf Course Review:
Pelican Sound Golf & River Club -- Pelican Sound, a fair challenge for all.
Review by: Michael The three nines at Pelican Sound are quite similar in design (but isn't that true for most Florida golf courses) however they do offer some diverse challenges. The fairways are wide, but don't let that give you a false sense of security. They tend to fall off towards lakes, marshes and palmetto bushes rendering your ball lost or unplayable. The greens are large, slightly elevated and well contoured. Green speeds vary depending on grain direction but are always in excellent condition. Watch out for down hill down grain putts, they will get away from you very easily. The practice facilities are good, providing a aqua range (not my favorite, but tends to be the norm in Florida) a good chipping area with a large bunker and a large putting green. Overall Pelican Sound is a good, challenging and fair golf experience. If you can get a tee-time (high season) it is a good course to add to your rotation.

Abbey Course At St. Leo University, The -- needs work, and lots of it
Review by: Joel Panabaker The course is little more than a cleared patch of grass mowed on occasion. The course has very few redeeming features and even fewer memorable holes (#'s 5 - 8 are the best stretch and would be average on any other course). It is what you'd expect if you and a group of guys owned a little farm land and decided to build a golf course. Trees form the majority of the hazards on this course and even they are sparse, used mostly to line the borders between the zillion fairways that run parallel to each other. Undoubtably the worst greens I have every played on. Ever. Anywhere. And these were mowed! Last time the greens had two inch grass on them. I don't rememeber a single sand trap. What do you expect for $16 primetime and $10 off season? The worst part is, there is potential here - all's it would take is a little money and a lot of work...
