What's the Rush?

I'm all for keeping pace of play, but we did a 4 hour round and half way were needled by "marshalls" to step it up. We were riding on a "cart path only" day and that adds more time to set up shots. But we were keeping a good pace. Not only did the marshall give us a warning, but they kept circling around us like a spy. I think his wife was in the 4some behind us.
That was a bunch of bull
Also, get rid of the geese! About half the holes had geese all over the fairways and the last 2 greens were covered in geese droppings

Avoid It

Played Valley Brook this morning and it was littered with geese and goose poop. Course was also soaking wet despite it not raining the night prior. Maintenance staff cut holes at an angle and the pace at 6:30am was about 4.5 hours. Total joke of a course and zero reason to go here with better options right up the road. Terrible experience.

Absolute Mess

It’s a shame because the course layout could be a huge selling point, however, the course conditions are abysmal. For a county course there is absolutely no effort going into maintaining a playable track. Staff is grumpy and not helpful at all.

Disappointed

Rented a pulled cart m, one of the wheel broke on the 6th hole.
We called the office to ask someone could bring us another cart.
They had 3 staff so they couldn’t bring it?

We also paid $59 hot deal for walking.
It was not worth it and the green was horrible.

Very disappointed and will not go back ever again

It’s a pretty course though, that’s about it.

Poor condition

It just happened that I played my first gold among tribes of geese and deers. The coarse is filled with geese poop, and your balls will catch one for sure! You are hoping not to kill an animal with every shot.
I gave my equipment good wash after that! Hole 10 will require you to drive over 220 yard or risk loosing a ball for sure. Navigation through the coarse is tricky but doable. The staff is very friendly which is the biggest plus.
End result, no.. I ain’t going back
