Abacoa Golf Club

Yahoo! No Three Putts is taking the day off and playing golf. I've got a 7:45 tee time at Abacoa Golf Club. I live just down the street from the Abacoa Golf Club. It's a nice Joe Lee design. The course opened in 1999 and is challenging. I usually play the gold tees which the course plays a whopping 7,200 yards from. And with the humidity here in Florida it feels more like 8,000 yards.

What I like about this course is it has some characteristics of a Tom Fazio design. Many holes have shots that you can cut off a lot of yardage if you want to go for it. Granted, if you miss hit it you'll be in the middle of a huge alligator infested lake, but if you're striking the ball well a course like this can be a lot of fun. Also, the greens have a lot undulation and, for Florida, the course is "hilly".

I'll give you an update on how I played later.

I enjoy reading your blog. It is very informative. I was wondering if you could leave feedback on this course on my golf course review website GolfCourseRankings.

The website allows golfers to rank each course by a number of criteria: overall golf experience, the value for their money, course difficulty, fairways condition, tee blocks, course design, condition of greens, the service at the proshop, and normal pace of play for an 18-hole round. The site also allows visitors to leave their comments on their impressions of the course.

I would appreciate any feeback you might leave. Thanks.
