Playable for All - University of Florida Golf Course

The Mark Bostic Golf Course is a good stop-off on your way to Orlando.  Just off I-75 at the University of Florida, the ccourse offers reasonable week-day rates and first-come tee tiimes.  We played right behind the UF golf team, and it was a pleasure to see some of college golf at its best. There's plenty of sand, but water comes into play on only a couple of holes---a great relief to the usual Florida golf ball robbery.  The course offers multiple tees, but most men seemed to be playing the 5,921 layout.  This is plenty for the Donald Ross layout with small, elevated greens that seem to break the opposite way you think.  The ladies tees are 4929 and landing area are generous for the women, so there's not much to fuss about.

Two drawbacks hampered our play.  The traps are not well maintained, and it is annoying to skull the ball off the clay bottom of a thin lie.  The price and open access seem to attract golfers of all skill levels, and play can be slower than some might like.  The score card's rule "allow faster players to play through" seemed to invite the players behind us to buss theiir drives over our heads, even though the course was full in front of us.  A course ranger might help, but there was none to be found.  Bring a hard hat.
