Default Executive golf course conditions south of 466

We are planning to play an executive course on Saturday with friends. I am concerned, as I have heard that Bogart, Mangrove, Bonita Pass and others I cannot remember.... are in terrible condition. Anyone have a 'good' list to share with me?
Thanks, Rose

The four courses south of 44 (Red Fox, Gray Fox, Loblolly and Longleaf) are all in good shape.

Southern Star was not that bad today.
Some greens were a little dry but all rolled really nice. Fairways were in nice condition.

I heard from one of the Ambassadors yesterday, that one of the problems with the Executive Courses is that they are owned by the residents and are under the control of the CDD's. The CDD's are not spending the money they should to keep the courses in top shape, even though the money is available. He also told me that they are talking about eliminating or cutting back the 50% discount the Ambassadors get when they play golf. Any truth to that? I can tell you that the Executive course I live on is not taken care of like it was in the past. A big palm tree fell down in the wind last October, and all they did was cut it up. The 4' high stump its still sitting there.
