Nice course, unfriendly staff

The course was in good shape for late October after a lot of rain. The greens were very bumpy and could use a smoothing out, however I would imagine in the summer at peak season the greens are more smooth. My biggest issue was with the staff, when I went to check-in and pay, the very disinterested man in the pro-shop more or less asked me “what do you want” which was a bit awkward considering I was there to give him my money, you’d think he’d be a little happier. Then I went out to the starter who was the most disgruntled gold employee I’ve ever met. He was disorganized, disrespectful, and down right degrading. I was very unhappy with the way he treated me from the start. When I returned my cart at the end of the day we tried to make a light hearted joke about the round as we finished just before dark, he could not have been any more rude. We did nothing to offend him, he was just an unnecessary angry Ol’ boy. It’s a shame because we did like the layout and the fairways were in good shape, but the staff was just atrocious. Good luck to all who have to deal with that regularly!

Good for beginners!

Great course, very friendly staff. The bathroom on hole 7 (I believe) needs to be fixed and cleaned up, but that’s my only complaint.

Great course for beginners

I’m not very good, but this course is very well kept and still provides some challenges. The bathroom by hole 7 needs attention, but that’s my only complaint. I’ll happily be back.

Terrible service

Terrible customer service, we were scheduled to play 18 holes and pre paid on GolfNow. When we got to the 10th hole we were told there is a league in progress and we are unable to golf. They did not offer a refund and we were stuck paying full price for 9 holes of slow paced golf due to us being placed behind a foursome that was walking.

Greens topdressed, still roll well

- Pros: fast round walking, greens rolled well despite being topdressed last within the week, fairways cut
- Cons: drainage could always be better.

Overall: walked 18 holes under $25. Fairways and rough were soggy, but only 2 plugged balls the whole round. Greens were recently top dressed, but they still rolled OK. There was someone out mowing the fairways, but because it was soggy, they only did a few holes and tee boxes. I would highly recommend this course early in the season before it dries out in July.

Rainy days

Rain last night messed up today. Cart path only gets old after a while. Course was bottled up bad. Every one is sniffing each others butts on every hole.

Staff inside the clubhouse were nice. Starter was cool.
Front 9 is fairly easy
Back 9 is more of a challenge

Still using carts from the 90’s

If you need some where to golf on short notice, this is a good place to go. I wouldn’t be planning a boys weekend to golf here though. This is probably one of the bottom tier Metropark golf courses.
