Unique Course - Terrible Management

A course tries to portray itself as 18 holes - but is just a 9 hole course. A unique style course that offers very little challenge, with a very nice price on golfnow. That being said, I've been there 3 times. One time they asked us to wait 30 minutes to tee off because of a scheduling conflict. The next time was without problem. And today, having previously scheduled a "Hot Deal" with golfnow, my wife and I arrived and were told we could not golf because of scheduling conflicts and that we would have to contact golfnow for a refund, no exceptions. The golfpro didn't even get out of his chair or make eye contact to present any amount of apology for the scheduling conflict. A very lazy management on a somewhat hillbilly course. Is it worth $5? Yeah probably. But you're going to be constantly at the mercy of poor management. Just pay the extra $5-10 and play at any of the other much better, much greener courses in Bowling Green and its outlying areas.

Bait and Switch

I was disappointed that the cart fee was not included in the "hot deal". I was not informed of this fact until I arrived at the course. We were charged an additional $11. Had I known this ahead of time I would have chosen a better option.

Meh

The man who owns it currently really brings down the overall experience. I paid on Golf Now and then he charged me again after I told him I already paid. The man is very rude. Would be a great little 9 hole course if he was not there.

Hi, Jeremy. Let us first start by thanking you for providing us with feedback. We would like to apologize for the any confusion or misunderstanding with your reservation. The reservation that you booked through GolfNow was a Hot Deal and unfortunately we are only able to honor those tee times at their designated time. That being said, we would like to apologize for any poor customer experience you may have received. We assure you this is not the standard we want to be known for as we always strive to provide the very best 5-star service. If you would like to discuss any concerns further, please feel free to reach out to our pro shop staff or GolfNow's customer service at 1 (800) 767-3574. We hope that we have the chance to welcome you back to Bowling Green Country Club for a more enjoyable golfing experience soon!

Snobby

Went there for the first time earlier this year and the older man (shorter with short dark hair) that works at the pro shop was VERY RUDE! Course conditions were sub par. I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and try again later in the year. Called in my tee time with a younger girl that was very polite over the phone, when I checked in I immediately recognized the older man who said that we needed to be off the course in 90 mins because of an employee outing or he will kick us off himself! To which I replied with, *chuckle* “good luck”. About 6 holes in, this man came from the clubhouse to stop us while we are hitting down the fairway and let’s us know we have 20 mins remaining. I was in disbelief and just ignored him. As we walked on the 9th tee box the employees started their shotgun start and started heading our way, they were very courteous and let us finish our final hole. I will never come back to this course again and will advise anyone to stay away from this course!

A nice, 9 hole course.

The course looks simple, but it challenges even seasoned players. I play in the Senior League and find it to have a good balance of tough holes and more friendly ones. The grounds crew does an outstanding job keeping the course in the best possible condition. The club pro is knowledgeable and helpful with first time golfers. Off course amenities are rather basic and do not include alcoholic beverages or prepared food.

Great local course

Considerable effort has been made by the groundskeeper and staff to keep the course in top condition. Bad weather this year has made it particularly challenging. All in all, though, it's a very nice, 9/18 hole course, meeting the needs of the average golfer. Amenities are a bit light, limited to soft drinks and snacks. With the closure of the Forrest Creason Course at the University, this is the only local alternative to the upscale, more costly Stone Ridge Golf Course.

never been treated so badly

Walk into the office area at one forty five. My tee time was for two. About ten minutes later a person who works the check-in shows up. With a very angry attitude he says what do you want. I say I have a two tee time for my dad and me. He says not on my course. you don't have sleeves. I SAY THAT I HAVE BEEN HERE NUMEROUS TIMES AND ITS NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM BEFORE. I ask him if we can work something out it is 90 degrees outside. H E SAYS NO WORKING IT OUT. I say ok I just spent 28 bucks and drove 35 miles to be treated like this. So I let him know I will never play there again. he just scoffs in delight.So after leaving I am wondering how a public golf course with not many patrons survives when the ones who do come get terrible treatment. NOT GOOD BUSSINESS PRACTICES. Unhappy in napoleon.

Fun course to play

The course has always been a favorite of mine. It is only 9 holes but it presents all kind of challenges. The first 3 hole are 2 par 4’s and a par 5.you have to be able to be a good striker of the golf ball. All 3 are legitimate as far as length. The there are 3 par 4’s that are very short but you have to be knowledgeable as far as your club selection off the tee. Then there is one par 3 if average length but you have to carry your tee shot over a quarry. The final hole is just an average par 4 that is usually parable the leaves you wanting to come back again. Ithe greens are some of the best I have ever played on. They hold and the ball rolls smooth. If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend this course . It will be a fun experience.

I do not recommend

Tom Garcia, the golf shop pro, was extremely rude and pushy. He treats anyone who is a non member like a child and with zero respect. The course was in terrible shape. Cart trails and fairways were also in very poor condition. I would NOT recommend this course to anyone!

Club Pro Tom Garcia is Terrible

Our group had almost the exact same experience as Corey Canaday. The club pro yelled at us like we were children bc we are non members. I've never been treated this terribly at any golf course in my life. One of us dropped our cell phone back on the 3rd hole and when we went back to retrieve it Tom screamed at us.(No other golfers in sight) Instead of explaining a safe route to the 3rd tee box, Tom instead yelled at us and told us to "get out of here". I tried to speak with him in his office and he again belittled me. I told him I would be writing a review and he said he did not care. Funny, bc I wrote a review on their Facebook page and 10 mins later they took their Facebook page down. I will also say, they refuse to serve hot food to non members and you will see flooded bunkers and other poor conditions here.
