    I meant to post a review last week about the experience of playing the newly renamed Larkin/Fox Den course to what is now known as The 500 Club. Well, with a deep long sighhhh, it was nothing special, considering they have gone up to $80.00 on the weekend. Basically, in a nut shell it was my last time playing there for that price. The new Mach 1 greens were OK, rolled decent and at a decent pace, but IMO, the Mach 1 greens at River Oaks are much more mature, firmer and are quicker and were seeded at the same time. When you put in new greens I would assume that you would make sure the practice putting green would be one of the main priorities. The practice putting green was closed and it looked terrible. Not sure what happened there, but to charge $80 for that course with no range and closed putting green is an absurdity. Just because you change the name “AGAIN” and put down another type grass on your greens doesn’t justify that price. The course was in the same shape as it was when it was Larkin. This place was purchased by a group of Daytona 500 winners, meaning a Nascar group, hence the name change according to the word going around. Well, let’s say you can’t almost double the rate because you put in new greens. The course was fairly empty and we played in a flat 4 hours. Just an FYI to any who will read my review to this point, River Oaks is a far better deal @ $58.00 on the weekends, Tony did not go up 1 dime on the rates after he put in new greens and moved the green on the first hole back across the ravine to where it originally was.` The 500 Club has gotten my last $80.00. Golfers beware!!!

  • But Larkin (The 500 Club) is a far nicer course, with nicer Clubhouse .. plus The 500 Club doesn’t flood every 2 to 4 years!

Lots of clubs around town will do short game clinics (1-3 hours on one day) that are fairly inexpensive ($30-$100). Stonebridge is one course that offers this. I've taken the one with Fred Bond and got my money's worth out of it. These types of clinics are usually a good...
