I travelled to Florida in January of 2009, during my freshman year of playing Division I Collegiate golf, to receive golf coaching and training from Spencer Graham. We met at a highly respected collegiate tournament in South Carolina while he was coaching a friend of mine, who now plays on the Nationwide Tour. His passion and commitment to all of his players is unmatched….and this was one of the main reasons that I travelled from Virginia to Florida to work with him initially. It made a huge difference to my overall golf game immediately. I had played for Scotland’s National U18's team in my junior golf years and was struggling with my swing for quite some time. However, a combination of Spencer’s top professional coaching as well as the tremendous facilities and weather that he has just outside of Orlando, FL, made for a perfect learning environment. With his help over the past 4 years, I have been able to find my golf game again and went on that year to finish ranked #2 for my college team, Old Dominion University. This included a number of very strong, nationally ranked top 10 finishes. I believe that going down and working with Spencer on my swing, short game and mental approach elevated my game and confidence to a completely different level. I highly recommend him as one of the top golf coaches in the world. The Academy has one of the best golf programs that I have ever been to, from great video swing analysis equipment to tremendous practice and disciplined plans for your game. I am already planning my next trip down to Harmony Golf Preserve to help advance my game even further. Spencer’s new facility looks unbelievable and I have no doubt that he and his team could transcend anybody’s golf game to the next level.

A few months prior to my freshman year at Purdue University, which I attended on a golf scholarship (our team was ranked #3 in Women’s NCAA Division I), I began to work with Spencer Graham on my golf game. Mr. Graham went out of his way to come to my hometown (Coral Springs, FL) to work with me before I began to come to his facility in Orlando, FL. His dedication and style was immediately noticed by my family and me. Spencer’s style of coaching was also very unique and I connected with it right away. I learned very quickly from him and have now elevated my game to an extremely competitive level, one that I was not accustomed to prior to working with him. He attended several of my tournaments, including the 2009 U.S. Women’s Amateur in St. Louis, Missouri. His enthusiasm and mental approach in coaching has helped me the most, as my confidence has now become higher than ever. I truly appreciate his help with my overall game and hope that he continues to be my coach throughout my entire golf career, from collegiate competition to hopefully a shot at professional golf. He comes highly recommended to me as one of the best junior and collegiate coaches in the world and I can certainly vouch for his talents and help that he has provided to me.

The proshop staff is always friendly and helpful.
Very professional and helpful staff great course and course conditions were outstanding.
From the bag drop guys to the pro shop guys to the rangers, the golfing was a wonderful experience.
My golf foursome comes to the Orlando area in the winter and the fall and we always play your course. It is one of the best courses we play.
I was very pleased with the people at professionalism at Harmony. The golf course was spectacular!
Very positive experience- the course is in excellent shape and the staff members are stellar! Always pleasant and efficient.
I want to thank you for the wonderful service and hospitality you and your staff provided during our recent golf vacation. Your flexibility in changing some of our start times and getting us back out for another 18 was appreciated. From the time we arrived, your staff, such as Nolan, was already waiting for us to load our clubs on the carts. We had great chats with Vern the starter who had to wonder why anyone would play 36 holes in 50 degree weather. We enjoyed meeting Josh and Rick, the marshal's, who always had time to chat when we were waiting. The course is wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed playing...Although the week we visited the weather was cold, Harmony's hospitality sure warmed our hearts. We will be great advocates to Harmony to our friends and golf acquaintances. Please pass on our hellos and thanks to Nolan, Vern, Josh, Rick, the lady on the drink cart lady who kept Cathy supplied daily with Pepsi, and the others who I have missed their names. Hope to see you again soon.

Just wanted to say again what a pleasant experience you and Alyssa and your entire staff provided us. Our group has never been appreciated as much as we were there. In fact, there were times when the staff made us feel like we were all one big happy family. Please share our appreciation with all of your staff. Thank you again for a great time and we will be back next year, already looking forward to it.
Larry, January 2010
Thank you for an outstanding day! All of our players were astounded at your incredible course and all of the staff went out of their way to make sure everything ran smoothly. I highly recommend this course as a fun and challenging place to play. The course conditions were outstanding. All the way around, we found every amenity on the course fabulous, and I wanted to thank you for a great golf experience. From the ease of online registration, the beauty and well-maintained course, the great golf carts, the helpful staff, the variety of food/drink available in the clubhouse, etc. etc., we were truly impressed. We will definitely come back and bring friends. Please thank everyone who made such an experience possible and let them know how they are doing their part to make the experience a fine one for golfers.

I want you to know that we travel 2 times a month. No course has come close to matching your staff's service and hospitality. As a past Director of Golf one of the greatest things I remember achieving was Golf Digest's "Places to Play" award for "outstanding customer service". Recently I thought that was a thing of the past until I played there Saturday. Tell your staff I thank them for "golf the way it used to be." By the way course conditions were also fantastic and all the players thanked me for setting us up there. Guess you figured we want to come back!
Bobby, September 2009
This golf trip far surpassed any thoughts and hopes I was expecting. My stepfather and I had a magnificent time and have not been able to stop talking about it since. The staff and course were immaculate.
Sweeny, Septemper 2009
Your course is beautiful. Keep the Sunday special going and I will very likely play Harmony exclusively. Very impressed by the staff, and felt as if I was playing a much more expensive course. Tremendous amounts of rain recently and the course still played beautifully. I can't say enough about the excellent conditions.
Keith, July 2009
Top notch with the entire facility. Great value!!
Albert, July 2009
I love your course!! Only complaint was that beverage cart did not start running until we made the turn (but understand why on a weekday). Your service and staff in the restaurant and proshop are superior to any other course I have played in Central Florida. I brought my folks and uncle along this time and they were pleased as well. Thanks!!
Cody, June 2009
Your facility, staff and course are top notch. I have played here before and I knew my guests would love your track. We were very impressed with course conditions considering all the rain. I will be back and I plan on bringing clients to your course very soon. Thanks again.
Brian, May 2009
Harmony is very good golf facility. Property, plant, and people were operating at a high level on my visit. The Tuesday special price was very welcome.
Bob, May 2009
Saturday I found my new most favorite course in Orlando. Harmony Golf Preserve is such a nice track. From the moment that you drop off your golf bags at the bag drop to the time you pull out of the parking lot, we were treated with smiles and professionalism from the entire staff. Upon arrival, they gave everyone in our group a very nice bag tag and a ball mark repair tool. The friendly proshop staff then gave us a nice golf towel, yardage book and informed us that there were two bottles of water in each cart already iced down for our use and then checked us in without delay and informed us that balls were free of charge already set up on the practice driving range. This is such a nice touch.
Dave, March 2009
I just wanted to let you know what an incredible day i had at your course. What a day. We heard a sonic boom from the Space Shuttle, saw at least a half dozen wild turkeys, had an incredible filet mignon in the club and played on a beautiful and natural golf course. Harmony is the perfect name. Easy to get to from I-95 too. Thanks guys. You'll see me again.
Mike, March 2009
I am the organizer for our yearly trip from the snowy northeast. We are a group of 8 [ladies] that have been going to Orlando for the past 5 years. This is our first time here and we will be back next year....we loved it to a man.
Pat, February 2009
My wife & I have played over 100 different courses in 17 different states. Harmony would rank in our top 3 favorites. The young man working as a starter was very friendly and the most service oriented course employee we have ever encountered. The course conditions were outstanding. Keep up the good work. We'll be back soon.
Mike, January 2009
Harmony is one of the prettiest courses I've played on this vacation. The greens run true and quick. The bag tag and divot tool were nice amenities, and thank you. We have visited Florida on vacation in January/February each year since 2000. We have truly enjoyed playing Harmony.
Gregory, January 2009
A wonderful golf trip over 3 days and 7 rounds. Very friendly staff and a wonderful course. Thanks again to Todd, Ryan and all the golf staff, Vern (starter), Alyssa and her help booking the trip, Stacey in the restaurant and all the other friendly and professional staff at Harmony. It is a testament to our experience that we fondly recall all the staff that contributed to our memorable experience.
Caius, January 2009
You and the Harmony Team did another outstanding job of hosting CSR's Golf Outing! From the service we received from those who picked up our clubs at the bag drop to the on course cart employee and to the lunch and beverage service .... well, it was the best service we have received and a big reason why we plan to come again next year.
Dan, October 2008
I just wanted to thank you for helping make this years event the best that it has been in a while. We were able to raise $3,000 for Cystic Fibrosis, which is the most we have raised in this event in at least 3 years. Todd and company were very organized and accommodating. Top notch!
It started when we got out of the car…Your staff who welcomed us was awesome and it just better from that... Check in, the range, the carts, the yardage book, hat and divot repair kit, the cost.... All was incredible. I also had a good conversation with the head pro there... Honestly, we felt like members.... Like we had the whole golf course to ourselves. We didn't have to wait on anyone and didn't get pushed. The grounds were amazing. Your staff at the bar were very friendly and talkative...Overall probably the best experience we had all week.
Phillip, February 2008
Our trip was great, in no small part to the seamless arrangements provided by you and Alyssa. The logistics of 16 golfers, a compressed schedule, and quirky preferences can make for a challenge, to say the least, but everything went smoothly. Plus, everyone from Harmony/Troon could not have been more accommodating and professional
Jon, February 2008
I was very impressed by my golf Experience at Harmony Golf Preserve. From the moment we got out of our car we were treated like VIPs. The staff was incredibly helpful, the golf course was amazing, and the overall experience was one of the best we've had. We go to Orlando once a year to get away from the Midwest winters and this course will absolutely be in our must play list. Thank you for the experience.
Phillip, February 2008
Staff was great. Course lay-out was terrific. Loved all of the birds on the course. The more, the better. Seeing wild turkeys on the course was something special.
Bruce, February 2008
I schedule a trip to Orlando every year. We have played Harmony since it has opened. We love it. The condition of the greens were the best we played on all week.
Dwight, February 2008
First I would like to say your golf facility is something to be proud of. The course layout, conditions, atmosphere, and service were exceptional and you and your staff should be commended. Our group truly enjoyed there experience playing Harmony twice during our golf week away. They enjoyed is so much it is on our list to play twice in 2009.
Jason, February 2008
"...thank you and your staff for providing our group with a wonderful experience during our visit to Orlando last week. The unanimous and unqualified opinion of our group was that the Troon organization was the star of our week. Alyssa attended to every detail and request, spent time checking out accommodations before our arrival and pleasantly resolved any issues that arose. We greatly appreciated the opportunity to work with her and would look forward to scheduling another trip with her help in the future. I also wanted to specifically mention the extraordinary service we received from your Food and Beverage Director, Primo...
"The catering at our rental homes was expertly handled and much enjoyed. Great food and friendly and accommodating staff were featured at all times...Please know that our experience was very positive and we greatly appreciate the effort and courtesies that were extended to us. The dinner at the Harmony Clubhouse was outstanding and we really appreciated the open bar. We hope the development continues to prosper and look forward to seeing you in the future."
Marc, February 2008
Our group really enjoyed your Harmony course. However the best part was your great staff. Everyone we were in contact with from the pro shop, rangers, food service and cart girls did an excellent job. Very nice courses can be built with a good piece of land and adequate funding, but it takes dedicated management to put together a team like yours. That will separate yours from the rest in the years to come. Congratulations!
CSR (Computer Sciences Raytheon) held a golf outing at the Harmony Golf Preserve on the 15th of September. Our company is based in Brevard County and we typically play local courses, but after playing at Harmony 2 years ago, I knew we needed to have one of our golf outings at Harmony this year. I spoke with Todd Van Meer earlier this year and we signed a contract back in April. I wanted you to know that I appreciate all the work your team put into our golf outing. From Todd and then Alyssa handling the initial arrangements, to the bag service that morning (great job guys), the assistance of Jonathan and Ari, and the food services team, well, it was 1st class service all the way. We expected 40 - 48 golfers and ended up with 64, most of whom played the course for the first time. The course conditions were excellent and the comments I received from our golfers reflected that. Everyone had a great time and we plan to come back next year! Please let everyone on your team who had a part in making this a memorable golf outing know that all 64 of us said THANK YOU!
