    Course layout is unique but quality of course was poor on front 9 and average at best on back 9. Restaurant was great
    Gordon (Scotland) 11/5/2017
    Excellent course with good driving range and restaurant, would sure go back to this course.
    Guido (Philadelphia, PA) 10/7/2017
    Disappointed a little bit. Course was not in as good shape as last year. Still had a good time
    Al Knight (Port St Lucie Fl) 6/1/2017
    Never seen this course in such bad condition, bunkers weeds and packed down , greens just aerified , lot of weed in greens. Fairways not cut with tremendous amount of weed. If this is what Billy Casper management gives you I won't play thief courses.
    Mike() 4/21/2017
    Poorest shape of the four courses we played, I am sure reflected by the price. Third time I have played this course, will not be back for the fourth. Staff great just maintenance seems not to be a priority.
    Jay(MT) 4/2/2017
    Fairways in rough shape. Greens not too bad.
    PAUL YAGEL(VALLEY CITY - OH) 3/20/2017
    shoot the grounds keeper
    Brian() 3/6/2017
    Course layout has potential, but conditioning needs lots of work. A couple of trees or shrubs cleared out in a few spots might eliminate some totally blind shots. With all the blind shots, you would think that that would have a yardage book with the hole layouts - but none. Not on my list of re-visits
    Tim (Otwell, Indiana) 3/3/2017
    I have been going to Florida for the last 6 years in February. This course was in great shape. Pro was easy to work with and probably the most fun course I have every played, well worth the money. We will be back next year.
    Tim() 3/2/2017
    Great course. Great staff.
    Tom(Middletown, PA) 2/27/2017
    The course was in good condition. The guys enjoyed this course very much.
    Tim(Minnesota) 2/3/2017
    Probable the toughest course out of five we played, but one of the most scenic I have played.
    JIM WILLIAMS(EDEN PRAIRIE - MN) 1/31/2017
    We loved the different feel of this course with the elevation changes and many blind, challenging shots. The greens were in phenomenal shape - some of the best we've seen. Unfortunately, we played it on a day where the wind blew from 25-40 mph, which made it very, very tough. Would love to play it again without the high winds. Not like any other course I've played in Florida.
    Ralf() 1/13/2017
    Nice course with not so much water. Help to save balls? Very kind and helpful staff.
    Frank(Ontario, Canada) 11/25/2016
    Fun course, tee box not in best condition on this visit. Would recommend because most holes are interesting due to the changes in elevations and couple of blind teeshots. Need to play it more than once to get to play the course better.
    Susan(Kissimmee, FL) 11/6/2016
    Nice lay-out, friendly staff, good lay-out, good greens, fair price, would recommend.
    Christopher() 6/1/2016
    Very cool golf course, particularly for Florida. Elevation changes and views were great, and the condition was very good.
    Hans-Peter(Allschwil, Switzerland) 5/1/2016
    The course was a highlight during my vacation. Everthing very good.
    John(Vero Beach, Fl.) 4/15/2016
    We enjoyed this course a lot. It rained on us but we were still able to finish two rounds and have lunch. The food was great and so was the staff. Good pick Tee Time.
    Tim(Davenport, Fl) 4/11/2016
    Check in was easy. Staff very friendly. Starter took a lot of time with us to explain the course. On a few holes it was good information to have. Worst condition of the 4 courses we played. Was a lot different than the other courses we played with regard to layout. Some interesting holes. Probably not one we will go back to.
    Marc(Dorval QC) 4/4/2016
    Course woth 3 stars at best. Greens are bumpy, Tee boxes need TLC and fairways in fair shape at best. Bunkers are miserable since nobody rakes them after playing in them. Lots of blind shots. The starter is excellent Will not replay
    Anthony(Sandy Hook, CT) 3/24/2016
    Wonderful course! Elevations make it hard to believe you are in Florida.
    ERIK HOGLUND(LONDONDERRY - NH) 3/15/2016
    This is a fun course. It was in better shape than some of the others we played.
    MIKE WIKOFF(PEORIA - IL) 3/14/2016
    Sanctuary Ridge is a great layout and a fun course to play. Was a little disappointed that our tee time was 9:26 am and we didn't tee off until almost 10 due to league play. Should not schedule tee times until league is done. The course also need some better fairway grass.
    Tim(Otwell Indiana) 3/11/2016
    I have been going to Florida for the last 5 years in February. This course was in great shape. Pro was easy to work with and probably the funniest course I have every played well worth the money.
    Ray(Michigan) 3/11/2016
    A very enjoyable layout. The elevation changes are challenging. The greens were not in good shape this year and they took away some of the enjoyment.
    Larry(Walbridge, OH) 3/7/2016
    Love the elevation changes on this course. This year though the fairways were rough and the greens were in terrible shape. This course has been one of our favorites the past couple years but we will think twice about returning next year. Needed a lot of work.
    Ella(Forsyth IL) 2/26/2016
    The most challenging golf course I ever played in in Orlando so far... Clean bathroom, friendly staff. Highly recommended to anyone who wants challenge. Many ups and downs, water hazards, scenic views, and dog leg left.
    Karen() 2/12/2016
    Enjoyed to golf course, it was in very nice shape.
    JIM HENDERSON(AURORA - ON) 2/8/2016
    course needs some work but still a great course to play.
    Tom() 2/4/2016
    Course was a little beat
    () 1/4/2016
    Very hilly but good value.
    Richard() 12/17/2015
    A fine variation from the usual Florida courses. Liked the elevation changes.
    Dennis(corwall ont canada) 12/3/2015
    would not play this course again to many blind shot very hilly tee boxes would need some help.
    Ted() 11/30/2015
    Unique very hilly layout for Florida golf. Too bad about the weedy, threadbare fairways, slow greens, and senseless blind shots. Centre fairway, 60 yards to flag and can't see the hole ?!?
    Robert(Ontario) 11/23/2015
    Nice course to finish our week with. Elevation changes are huge here. Good shape and well maintained. Will play again for sure.
    Gareth(South Wales uk) 11/20/2015
    Enjoyed the course. Not a typical Florida course with many elevations. In good condition and a nice welcome at the bar .
    DENNIS THOMPSON(BALTIMORE - MD) 11/16/2015
    Going in we knew this course had over seeded prior to our arrival. So we expected slow greens. And they were haha. The staff at this course was great, friendly, courteous and informative about the course.
    IRV BETCH(MONKTON - MD) 11/15/2015
    Great views but subpar course compared to others
    JOSEPH MCKEEVER(BELCAMP - MD) 11/15/2015
    We were informed ahead of time that the greens would be slow. They were. The course had overseeded the week prior and had just made the first cut on the greens. Other than the slow greens, this is a real nice course. I love the elevation changes.
    Susan(Pittsburgh, PA) 11/13/2015
    Nice layout, very nice greens & enjoyed the course. Will definitely be back!
    Thomas() 10/1/2015
    Course was in poor condition,would not play again
    Jean Pierre(France) 4/30/2015
    Very nice people and very pleasant course, we played it twice. Very near from where we lived
    PETER WILSON(ASHLAND - MA) 4/23/2015
    Good first day course!
    Robert(Adams Center, NY) 4/2/2015
    This was a great finishing course for our trip. The views were spectacular and it was nice to play at a course with elevation changes in Florida. Our starter was friendly and informative. We were able to get out a little earlier than expected and that was a nice treat. The course was in great shape. Very challenging with many blind holes and dog legs. Greens held well and were interesting with pin locations and undulations. I would highly recommend this course if you want something a little different in the Orlando area.
    Mike() 4/1/2015
    well laid out course, would not play here again. Rumor has it bank has taken over, maintenance, support, carts, range balls, etc all suffering.
    John() 4/1/2015
    a little disappointed this time with course conditions... but a good value if you need a cheaper course to play...3.5 out of 5
    William(Stroudsburg, PA) 4/1/2015
    The starter and the club house facilities were great.
    Paul(Markham, Ontario, Canada) 3/21/2015
    A very challenging and pretty design golf course. It's tough but worth playing.
    ROBERT DAWSON(CHILLICOTHE - IL) 3/9/2015
    there was a notification problem about the tee times. course made up for it and gave us lunch and an early pm tee time
    ROBIN HOUCHIN(MACKINAW - IL) 3/9/2015
    Great views and interesting holes.
    Dan(Minnesota) 3/9/2015
    If you plan to play this course try to play with someone who has played the course. There are a couple of weird holes with severe doglegs and bling shots. The bunkers were in terrible shape with way too much sand and not maintained. We probably won't play this course again.
    Daniel(Fostoria, OH) 3/7/2015
    This course was built on a ridge. Many of the holes have elevation changes. The course was in great shape. The greens were fast and true. The staff was very friendly. It has a driving range. The clubhouse was very nice. I make sure I play this course every year I come down to Florida both for the challenge of the course and the views of some of the holes.
    KASEY NEELY(TITUSVILLE - PA) 3/2/2015
    May not play this course again? Liked some of the holes, but alot of the holes were layed out very awkward!! Practice Range were very average or below average.
    KYLE SMITH(MILAN - IL) 2/22/2015
    Good course for the money! One of our groups favorite! The course is a very good layout, course conditions aren't as good as some of the higher priced course. This course is definitely worth playing!
    Terry Tsubouch(Thunder Bay , ON) 2/20/2015
    Didn't like the elevation. Not the best condition.
    Oran(Swisher, IA) 2/5/2015
    Interesting course layout. Challenging holes. Would like to play it again now that we know more about the course.
    John(Coldwater, ON) 2/5/2015
    Certainly a course with a different look with the elevation changes. Enjoyed playing it.
    Jim(Darien, IL) 2/5/2015
    Very interesting course with a lot of elevation changes and therefore interesting holes. The people there were friendly. The greens were in great shape.
    Paul(North Bay , ON) 1/23/2015
    Love this course, great value, would play again.
    Don(Valley, AL) 12/18/2014
    We enjoyed this course and would play again. I would rate it a 4.
    Paul(Mississagua, ON) 12/18/2014
    This was our 4th visit to this course as we have always enjoyed the layout.
    KENNY HAGGARD(MAYSVILLE - KY) 11/14/2014
    HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE FREE REPLAY BUT IT WAS TAKEN CARE OF WITH PROOF THAT IT WAS OFFERED NICE COURSE FOR THE MONEY STAFF WAS EXCELLANT IN PROVIDING US WITH INFORMATION ON THE BLIND HOLES ON THE COURSE WHILE WE WAITED FOR THE FOG TO RISE
    WILL DUDMAN(PLANTATION - FL) 6/30/2014
    This is a MUST play. Conditions could have been better, but is more than made up with the view of the course. Every turn gives you something different. This is not your typical golf course. Again a MUST play if you want to play something different.
    ERIK OLIVER(NEWINGTON - CT) 5/26/2014
    Sanctuary was a good course in decent condition. Liked the fact that the course ran alongside houses. Cool layout that made every hole present a new challenge.
    ADAM FARRELL(ORLANDO - FL) 5/26/2014
    The course was great once again as well as the staff. We breezed through the front 9 without an issue, but once we hit the back 9 we ran into a group that wouldn't let us play through. This is really the only issue we have each year here, and having a ranger our and about may help things a bit.
    ADAM FARRELL(ORLANDO - FL) 5/26/2014
    The course was in great shape this year, and even with some rain thrown in and still played great. The pro shop staff was great, and the bartenders were nice enough to serve us even though they had an event going on. It was a pleasure coming to the course.
    MATTHEW PEREIRA(BRIGHTON - MA) 5/21/2014
    The course was in decent shape and was good value for what you pay. It would have been nice to have GPS in the cars though
    MICHAEL CHANDLER(FRANKLIN - MA) 5/21/2014
    We have for 4 years straight played this course the first day. Very good course for the price and a good opening day course.
    RAYMOND JAMROCK(JACKSONVILLE - FL) 4/22/2014
    great elevation change. You just don't get at many florida courses
    Jim Glendye(Danville - NH) 4/19/2014
    Our group of 13 thoroughly enjoyed playing on Sanctuary Ridge. We have played in the past and it has always been a fun track to be on.
    PAUL LAM(SCARBOROUGH - ON) 4/10/2014
    Nice change of pace with the hills.
    Marceau(Maricourt - CANADA) 4/10/2014
    very good 8on 10
    RICK HINTON(MIDDLETOWN - OH) 4/5/2014
    Very challenging
    Kimber(Bolton - CT) 4/4/2014
    Nice - I would play here again. A few funky holes - but great elevation changes.
    Randy() 4/3/2014
    This was an interesting golf course for the Florida area. Plenty of elevation changes on a large footprint. Worth playing again!
    Dale() 4/2/2014
    Sanctuary Ridge was very physically demanding because of all the elevation changes. Very challenging.
    RICK CARLESKI(GALLOWAY - OH) 3/31/2014
    Played here several times and always enjoy the change of terrain and the views. Pro shop gave us a quick replay and finished 36 holes in 8 hrs.
    Bill(The Villages - FL) 3/27/2014
    Great scenery and elevation changes - beware of sand bunkers - great value
    John(Richfield - WI) 3/25/2014
    Above average course. Great shape. Will play again.
    Daniel(Fostoria - OH) 3/16/2014
    This course is very challenging. It has water - sand - and varying elevations throughout. The course was in very good shape. The staff was very friendly. I really enjoyed the challenge of playing this course.
    Rick(Traverse City - MI) 3/10/2014
    We rated this golf course the highest out of our package because of the changing elevations - playability - and scenic views.
    Ray(Ann Arbor - MI) 3/9/2014
    The elevation changes make this an interesting and challenging course to play. Good value for the cost.
    Bryan(Cheyenne - WY) 3/4/2014
    44 golfers invaded Sanctuary Ridge and what a great time - If your looking for a challenge this is your course - Great Greens - Great Staff - and a great challenge. Thanks for your great service
    DAVE BEGG(HUNTSVILLE - ON) 2/17/2014
    Second year we've played this course-we'll play it every year.
    Tom(Middletwon - PA) 2/13/2014
    Very nice course. Some very unique holes. Good pace of play. Our group had a good time. Easy access from Orlando.
    Name Not Given(golfer name not known) 1/30/2014
    very enjoyable golf course
    GWYNN ANDERSON(BALSAM LAKE - WI) 1/28/2014
    45 minute delay in starting due to a shotgun sent out that we had to wait to get through the first tee. 2nd year in a row. Still a good day for the price.
    Michel(Boucherville - CANADA) 1/16/2014
    good condition like the hospitality would return
    Robert(Kenora - CANADA) 1/16/2014
    Very different course for Orlando. Alot of elevationchanges. It was a nice change.
    BARRY BRUNEAU(SEAGRAVE - ON) 11/11/2013
    One of our favorite courses and a repeat for future trips
    Mike Cercone(Gainesville - FL) 7/6/2013
    We always play this course on our way to play our Orlando trips. Different from most courses because it is very hilly. Love the layout and the staff is always nice.
    TOM MULLANEY(NORTH ATTLEBORO - MA) 6/21/2013
    This is the second time playing this course. We played it first as a warm-up for our trip and enjoyed it. We had a free replay which we took advantage of. It has a a lot of elevation change for a Florida golf course which is a nice change. The greens were in good shape. A word of advice to anybody who is going to play this course, use a colored golf ball on the first hole. The driving range parallels the first fairway and there is no net separating the two so any ball hit into the right side of the fairway blends in with the couple of range balls people hook into it. The pace of play was slow for the first round (9am tee time) and first round took 5 hours to play but the second round only took 3 1/2 hours and was enjoyable.
    MICHAEL CHANDLER(FRANKLIN - MA) 6/21/2013
    Always a great course to start the trip. Pace of play was average but other then that it was a good course. Free replay is nice.
    RAYMOND JAMROCK(JACKSONVILLE - FL) 5/7/2013
    This is a Florida gem. You just don't have many courses with this much elevation variation.
    Paul(North Bay - ON CANADA) 4/19/2013
    A real jem in great shape. I love the layout andelevation changes.
    James(GrandHaven - MI) 4/10/2013
    This course was a lot of fun. Very hilly for aFlorida course. Good shape. Some very unique holes with blindshots into the green. Lots of elevation changes. Get a cooler as# 9 does not go back to the club house. Staff friendly. Starterwas very helpful with
    RICK CARLESKI(GALLOWAY - OH) 4/6/2013
    Played this course the last three trips to Orlando. Very courteous staff and interesting layout.
    MAURY MILLER(GOSHEN - IN) 4/5/2013
    Good change of pace from other Florida courses and lots of fun. Will continue to be on our agenda.
    LESTER SPOTH(NORTH TONAWANDA - NY) 4/3/2013
    One of the only places in central florida with elevation changes. Overall many unique holes. Good playback, friendly staff, small driving range. We like this course, as it winds around, goes up and down, and constantly changes. A little drive to cleremont, but worth it. Great value. Add this to your list!
    RAYMOND M(WYOMING - RI) 4/1/2013
    Played this course when it was the Diamond Players course. Not a bad course.
    Name Not Given() 3/30/2013

    Joe(St. Paul - MN) 3/29/2013
    Beautiful golf course in great condition.
    Bruce(St. John'S - NL CANADA .) 3/27/2013
    Chose this course as the 'new course' for the tripthis year to the Orlando area. What a very pleasant surprise! Who thought such elevation changes could be found in Florida! The course was in very good shape - the greens held our approachshots - the fai
    RICHARD SAMA(ENFIELD - CT) 3/26/2013
    To many gimick holes.
    Frank(Bridgeport - MI) 3/23/2013
    Nice course. Will play again.
    JOHN STARLING(HALIFAX - NS) 3/18/2013
    Outstanding topography, making for very interesting play. Enjoyed it vey much
    JULIA A. SOUTHARD(BEVERLY HILLS - FL) 3/12/2013
    This course is absolutely amazing. Maybe a little to hard for us to play but we had a wonderful time. Everyone was very good to us even though it took us way longer to play than it should have. They seemed to understand that the difficulty of the course made it harder for us to play and therefore took us more time.
    WAYNE TYLEC(NORTH TONAWANDA - NY) 3/11/2013
    OUR GROUP WAS MIXED ON PLAYING IT AGAIN. I THOUGHT IT WAS TOO HILLY AND COULDN'T READ THE GREENS
    Daniel(Fostoria - OH) 3/9/2013
    This is an excellent course at a very reasonableprice. The course is beautiful but challenging. You always seemto be going downhill or uphill. The greens are large and havemany breaks in them. I would definitely recommend playing thiscourse.
    Mark(Rr 1 Grassie - ON CANADA) 2/20/2013
    Great course. Very intersting holes. Elevationchanges - lots of sand and waste areas. Good price. If you haven'tplayed it you should.
    DAVE BELL(HARVEY YORK CO - NB) 2/19/2013
    A fav of our group because of the unique design. The condition is just OK, and it is too busy with event bookings leagues etc.
    Bill(Brandon - MBCANADA) 2/15/2013
    This is an exciting course to play. It has fantasticelevation changes but do be sure to pick the correct golf club tocircumvent the elevation changes. The course can be penal attimes as it is not an easy track but if you play the correct teeboxes it will
    STEPHEN HEIBER(FLORHAM PARK - NJ) 2/11/2013
    Very interesting "hilly" course. Unusual for Fla.
    TOM MULLANEY(NORTH ATTLEBORO - MA) 6/18/2012
    The course was laid out well; I especially enjoyed the 250yrd par 3. The only thing I didn't like was the driving range was parallel to the first hole and there were range ball all over the the first fairway. Overall I enjoyed playing on this course and would go play it again if I had the chance.
    ADAM FARRELL(ORLANDO - FL) 6/18/2012
    Another course replayed from last year. First day on a known course was a nice touch. The weather didn't hold up on the back and by the time 18 rolled around, we were all wet and ready to be done. One of the more challenging courses with elevation changes, a go to course for the trip.
    JAY SEAGERS(CARP - ON) 4/23/2012
    Loved this course. Challenging but not unfair. One of our faves for sure! Play there again in a second.
    DOUG DREYER(HOLLAND - MI) 4/3/2012
    Very Nice Course, Very Poorly Run. No coordination between food and beverage sevices and pro shop. Also, they didn't factor in daylight saving time, and were way behind on Tee Times.
    Name Not Given(Jasper - IN) 4/1/2012
    This is an exciting course to play. It has fantasticelevation changes but do be sure to pick the correct golf club tocircumvent the elevation changes. The course can be penal attimes as it is not an easy track but if you play the correct teeboxes it will
    Larry(Portage - IN) 3/31/2012
    We have played here before and always enjoy it. It is a very unique course with all the elevation changes. Will be back!
    Pierre(BoisDes Filion - QC CANADA) 3/30/2012
    We like this one very much.
    JULIA A. SOUTHARD(BEVERLY HILLS - FL) 3/26/2012
    This was without a doubt the most challenging course we played and probably my favorite. The ups and downs made the course fun and exciting to play.
    RICHARD SAMA(ENFIELD - CT) 3/26/2012
    We played this course many years ago and it was terrible. There has been a VERY POSITVE transformation to a facility we would be happy to come back to.
    ANDREA STROGNEY(INVERNESS - FL) 3/26/2012
    definately would go back, great lay out and very interesting and challanging course.
    KEN JAMESON(EAST GRANBY - CT) 3/23/2012
    Not worth the drive. No beverage cart.
    MICHAEL BROHMAN(GLENCOE - IL) 3/19/2012
    This course is an incredible bargain compared to many of the courses in the greater Orlando area. I loved the elevation changes and thought the course was very challenging, especially for the opening round of the trip. It was also quite picturesque. The greens might not be in as good as condition as the "prime" Orlando courses and the fairways may not be as "pristine", but I would play this course again in a heartbeat.
    Name Not Given(St. John'S - NL CANADA) 3/9/2012
    Lots of elevation changes and rolling fairways.Enjoyed the views and the condition of the course. Veryaccommodating and cheerful staff. Play was slow due to no starterpushing play along.
    DAN JACKSON(TOPSHAM - ME) 2/27/2012
    Very under-rated course. Every hole is different. The staff is flexible and pace of play good.
    BRIAN STOWELL(CLAREMONT - NH) 2/13/2012
    Truly a mountain course! Really! Who knew such a thing existed in Florida?! Great change of pace. Really enjoyable. Challenging but not punishing. Definitely would go back.
    Edward(ML2 0NR Wishaw - UNITED KINGDOM) 10/3/2011
    Loved this course elevation changes made it very exciting some real good holes on this course another recommendation to play .
    KEN GEE(DANVERS - MA) 6/26/2011
    Quite a golf experience though facilities were average. Layout is terrific with every hole different and roller coaster terrain. Had to plan every shot and use every club in the bag. Conditions were firm and fast so side slopes had maximum effect. Fairways had dry spots, rough minimal and bunkers very good. Greens were average in speed which was good considering the big undulations.
    ADAM FARRELL(ORLANDO - FL) 5/30/2011
    This was the one course that sticks out. Checked in and had the carts right there for us. Staff was friendly, told us to head out whenever we were ready. Range was nice along with putting green. Course played well, very challenging holes to start out with. The Par 3 with the 100 ft drop was amazing to try and figure out what club to hit. Big change with the layout from the flat courses we had played to that point. Some great views from the tee and fairway. Playing the back tee's made it that much more exciting to play. For being as dry as it seemed, the course played well. Definitely would play again if given the chance. A lot of memorable golf was played at this course.
    EDDIE STACEY(KAHNAWAKE - QC) 5/4/2011
    Enjoyable, some nice views. a good time was had by all. will play again.
    CHRIS MORIN(SANDOWN - NH) 4/13/2011
    Pay attention to the starters tips.
    GREGORY MORIN(METHUEN - MA) 4/4/2011
    love the hills.
    LESTER SPOTH(NORTH TONAWANDA - NY) 3/28/2011
    Very scenic. mediocre driving range. Did a playback and will play again
    CURT VAN ORDER(GETZVILLE - NY) 3/28/2011
    excellent course
    ROBERT NOLL(LITHIA - FL) 3/16/2011
    Great challenging set of holes. Very relaxing to play. An annual favorite.
    EMERY OKOS(BATTLE CREEK - MI) 3/15/2011
    Great first day course and not typical of Florida courses.
    JIM SHAUGHNESSY(CHELMSFORD - MA) 3/14/2011
    Great staff.
    JIM SHAUGHNESSY(CHELMSFORD - MA) 3/14/2011
    Staff was great.
    JERRY BACKUS(OMRO - WI) 3/14/2011
    We like this course!
    DOUG GONZE(HOLLAND - PA) 3/8/2011
    There are a few other hillier courses up in that area that we would try, possibly. Very interesting contrast to the rest of the trip. The first 13-14 holes were cool...the last 4-5 were a little too tricked out.
    GIDEON EWERS(HORSHAM - ) 3/7/2011
    Good fun course positively alpine by Florida standards
    TOM STEWART(GREENSBURG - IN) 3/7/2011
    Definitely a different course for Orlando. Enjoyed it.
    KYLE SMITH(MILAN - IL) 2/26/2011
    Great course for the money. Maybee the best value in Orlando! We have played for 6 years straight! Very good layout, can be easy or can be very challenging! Conditions are ok, don't expect plush conditions. Sanctuary Ridge is worth playing!
    LEONARD RAPPE(ROSLYN - NY) 2/14/2011
    very challenging course
    LANCE KEELEY(BROOKFIELD - WI) 2/14/2011
    Excellent value, everything it neeeds to be be at a reasonable price.
    LOU RANAHAN(GLOUCESTER - ON) 12/13/2010
    This was an excellent course...in great condition
    VICKI KOSHLIEK(CUMBERLAND FORESIDE - ME) 4/3/2010
    Not our favorite. Too many houses on course.
    JODY WHITE(COLUMBUS - OH) 3/29/2010
    Love this course. Fastest greens of all that we played.
    NANCYE CONNOR(WELLESLEY - MA) 3/29/2010
    Very challenging with lots of blind shots. Mountain course really describes this--lots of retention areas to lose balls; too difficult for our taste, but certainly scenic!
    JOHN PARIS(LAFAYETTE HILL - PA) 3/18/2010
    really unique course-2nd time playing it,our group really likes it- guess this would be florida's wolf creek without all the steroids
    DAN SHEA(QUINCY - MA) 3/15/2010
    Definitely Florida's version of mountain golf but still a fair test. We had tee times set up and had called to confirm three days beforehand but when we arrived at the course we told out tee times were going to be delayed. We eventually teed off one hour later. Messed up our replay also.
    TOM HOLDENER(TROY - IL) 3/12/2010
    too far away but glad we played it.
    LESTER SPOTH(NORTH TONAWANDA - NY) 3/8/2010
    we really liked the layout of this course. weathered out and only played 9 holed in cold rain
    ROBERT CASE(NUTLEY - NJ) 3/1/2010
    This course is a hike from Orlando. The dramatic elevation changes on this course make it NO FUN to play, if you are only playing one round on it. Definitely a members course, lots of blind shots and swirling winds, greens were not consistant, sand traps were dirt traps..Our whole group disliked it so much, we didn't even stay for lunch..NO one in our group would ever return..waste of time and money
    DENNIS SALMON(CRESTWOOD - KY) 2/28/2010
    very nice course a little up and down hiilly course but very fair
    DAVID LOBO(WOODBRIDGE - CT) 2/23/2010
    Played on a hillside either hitting down or up. Good course if you are into target golf. If you miss the fairway, it might mean a long climb down. Course in good condition
    DAN CASTELLANO(OAKLAND - NJ) 2/15/2010
    Very interesting and different course. Not one boring hole.
    GEOFF CREAMER(ENGLEWOOD - FL) 11/24/2009
    probably the best golf value in Orlando and not your typical FL terrain-better than average course conditions, too
    ROBERT KOREN(WHITBY - ON) 6/8/2009
    Hole #2 through #13 is a great stretch of holes, #9 is awesome. Would recommend to anyone heading to Orlando.
    STEPHEN TODARO(STATEN ISLAND - NY) 5/7/2009
    The surprise of our trip. Had great design and was full of challenging holes with great elevation changes which you never really find in Florida. Some real nice holes and no surcharge. A must play on your trip.
    GRANT GEDDES( - ) 4/6/2009
    This was one of the most unique courses I have played. The elevation changes on every hole was incredible. We enjoyed this course so much that we cancelled a previously booked round at another course to play Sanctuary Ridge again.
    ROLAND TETREAULT(ELLINGTON - CT) 3/23/2009
    Difficult to play the first time, can get bad results for what you thought was a good shot.
    JOHN GERNAT(MACOMB - MI) 3/20/2009
    AWESOME must play course in orlando area!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    JOHN PARIS(LAFAYETTE HILL - PA) 3/20/2009
    this course was the steal of the week-they could charge way more than the $13 surcharge we paid. was way better than the orange lake resort courses this course is a hidden gem!
    CHUCK STONE(CRANSTON - RI) 3/16/2009
    elavation changes is the word. but fun to play, makes you think about it before you hit.
    JOHN LENNON(HOLTSVILLE - NY) 3/12/2009
    Course is in great shape and it's just plain fun to play. Very different for Fla. One of our favorites and a great value.
    HALSEY SMITH(WELLINGTON - FL) 3/9/2009
    One of the best courses played
    RON HETRICK(SAINT JOHNS - FL) 3/9/2009
    An excellent and interesting layout. A blast to play. One of our favorites.
    DAVE VICKERS(STREATOR - IL) 3/5/2009
    The elevation changes were very impressive.A clever design. Our group really enjoyed this course.
    RICK WALKER(WAYNESBURG - PA) 2/21/2009
    was too hilly for us. Pretty hard for higher handicaps. Blind shots and severe lies. We will avoid.
    LARRY NIEMANN(PROSPECT HEIGHTS - IL) 2/16/2009
    You need a good sense of humor to play Sanctuary Ridge.
    JOHN WERSCHLER(LONDON - ON) 1/26/2009
    Very nice course, friendly staff.
    JOYCE HEWARD(MATTAWAN - MI) 1/22/2009
    This was first course and a favorite. We didn't expect such hilly conditions in Florida. I would have liked this couse a little later in the itinerary since our golf was rusty. We even considered going back on our own later in the trip since it was so affordable, but never found the time. The course conditions were excellent and the clubhouse was beautiful as well. Staff and patrons were extremely friendly. This would be the area where we would consider retiring or investing in a Florida residence.
    DIANE SMITH(MURFREESBORO - TN) 12/29/2008
    Beautiful course. Definitly on our "play again" list.
    FRANK MATTEI(WELLAND - ON) 12/13/2008
    some holes were goofy. Blind shot to a severly down hill landing area.
    MICHAEL COTE(SMITHFIELD - RI) 5/6/2008
    fairways were being aerated as we played....other than that a great course...the elevation changes make for a unique golfing experience in florida
    DICK JONES(ROCHESTER - NY) 5/6/2008
    Excellent layout. Tough sand traps I was in plenty of them. The geens were in perfect shape, very fast but true. 4 1/2 stars for this one.
    TERRY NEAL(PALM BEACH GARDENS - FL) 5/5/2008
    It was simply a fun course to play. Lots of challenges.
    DAVID KUCHARSKI(NEW CASTLE - PA) 3/24/2008
    A hidden gem. Will definitely play it again.
    GRADY THOMPSON(LAKELAND - FL) 3/18/2008
    Loved the course! Overall this is an excellent course to play with unique Florida elevation changes which requires careful and challenging shot making abilities. Will definitely play this course again.
    JOHN LENNON(HOLTSVILLE - NY) 3/9/2008
    First timers here. And we all loved it!! Definetly different for FLA. And a great replay rate. A couple of rough spots but the new managment company has only been here since Nov. We are definelty going back and expect even greater things in the future.
    JIM HARVEY(CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP - PA) 3/3/2008
    Course was fun, very hilly but we are used to that in Pittsburgh. Good value for the $$. Pro shop not well stocked..one guy forgot socks and they had none. Restaurant good. Went out for a replay and had to wait an hour for more carts!
    JIM HARVEY(CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP - PA) 2/26/2008
    Fun course...very hilly and no level lies. Everyone of group of 20 enjoyed the round. Proshop lacking in merchandise, grille room was good. Did a replay but had to wait a very long time for carts so thus unable to finish another 18. Would play again.
    PATRICK LOGAN(ROCHESTER - NY) 5/7/2007
    Well worth the extra travel time. Course was very challenging and in great condition and offered a nice change from the usually flat Florida courses.
    MICHAEL MORGAN(PITTSFORD - NY) 5/4/2007
    Beautiful course!
    TIMOTHY SPENCER(MACEDON - NY) 5/2/2007
    Outstanding
    JON GALLERY(ROCHESTER - NY) 4/30/2007
    Felt like staff cared, felt wanted.Rreally enjoyed this course. Staff very helpful.
    JEFF SIMPSON(JENSEN BEACH - FL) 4/23/2007
    Fun course, unique for Florida. Definitely want to play again.
    JIM MURRAY(JAMESVILLE - NY) 4/9/2007
    Interesting and fun!
    ROGER ALOUCHE(AJAX - ON) 4/2/2007
    Enjoyed golfing here for the great views however too many blind shots make some holes irritating.
    ALEXANDER POPE(IPSWICH - MA) 4/2/2007
    Really enjoyed this course
    GARY WALL(ROCK SPRINGS - WY) 3/27/2007
    fantastic
    MATTHEW POKIGO(AMHERST - NY) 3/26/2007
    This is a terrific golf course. A little short from the back tees, but definitely worth the money!
    DAN HYATT(MENTOR - OH) 3/26/2007
    My favorite couse of the trip. We played 36 holes.
    EDUARDO JONES(CHICAGO - IL) 3/23/2007
    It could have been due to the new owners trying to get everthing in order. but you can't beat the views.
    TOM LACY(DOYLESTOWN - PA) 3/20/2007
    Really a fun course to play. The elevation changes were terrific. Did not expect that in a Florida course. Everyone in our group loved the course
    CARL CROSSLAND(WESTFIELD - MA) 3/19/2007
    A "mountain" course by Florida standards but similar in nature to many northeastern US courses (although in better shape than most). Some challenging holes and elevation changes with tricky but makeable greens. A good experience and I would play it again but can't say that it was necessarily my favorite.
    BRAD BARGMANN(RAPID CITY - SD) 3/12/2007
    Need to have this in a trip if playing several days in Orlando.
    RICHARD ROGERS(PUNTA GORDA - FL) 3/12/2007
    this is a very difficult course, amatuer golfers should be steered clear beautiful course
    RONALD FERKO(CANFIELD - OH) 3/6/2007
    Just a great , great, course. Will play again next year. The elevation changes on the course makes for an exciting and challenging but fair round of golf.
    EARL WALTERS(SANTA ROSA - CA) 3/6/2007
    excellent,played this course three times in a week.
    ROE RICHARDSON(DETROIT - MI) 3/5/2007
    This was by far the best layout and conditions of play. The course is magnificient and well worth the money!!!
    DENNIS WILKE(OAKDALE - PA) 3/5/2007
    Very nice course and staff. Interesting views and fun to play. They need a practice chipping area though.
    DOUG LAFONTAINE(GLOUCESTER - ON) 2/19/2007
    Another annual favorite.Greens were the best around.
    STEVE HUMPHREY(LEXINGTON - KY) 2/12/2007
    good bang for the buck. intersting layout with the elevation changes.
    KELLY METTERT(NEW HAVEN - IN) 2/7/2007
    We were scheduled to play on Thursday, 36 holes, and the weather was terrible. We called the course to see if we could switch to Friday, so we could go to the PGA show during the rain, and play golf when it was dry. They took care of it perfectly. Even though it was cold on Friday morning, it was worth it. I give them bonus points for the switch. We will be back to this course again!!!!!
    GREGORY MANELSKI(HUNTINGTON STATION - NY) 1/8/2007
    one of the most interesting and beautful golf courses we have played in florida. with the hills, we thought we were playing in pennselvania or vermont. we asked and were paired with another couple you had great course knowledge. very enjoyable, would definatly play again
    COLIN POWELL(SOUTH SHIELDS - ) 11/27/2006
    Elevation changes made club selection very interesting, scenary was great.
