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...

Review by: POH I've enjoyed playing this course for five years. The course has an excellent layout. Fairways, ruff, and greens are well maintained but the Tee boxes need work. The greens are well maintained, thick, consistent, and quick enough (maybe a 9.5) that everyone I know whose played them said they were good. The GPS is pretty dated but adequate. Only problem seems to be it only works on about 75% of the carts. All in all, an excellent value for the money.
