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...

California Golf Club -- Great Value
Review by: Paul In my experience, California Golf Club offers a great value for the recreational golfer. I paid twenty-five dollars for a morning round (in season) and was very pleased with the course. The fairways may not be in peak condition, but the greens are fast and consistent. The fairways are typically Florida flat, but trees line almost every hole, making tee shots challenging, and recovery shots inevitable. The most unusual feature at California is the last three holes, which seem to have been lifted off of a TPC course and dropped on North Miami. Mid-handicappers should love this course.
