Disappointing

Course layout was cool and staff was nice, but right away from hole 2 on there was a long wait to tee off. Tee boxes and fairways had long grass, overall course condition was poor.

The club lacks from top to bottom

I will start off by saying that I scheduled my round for the wrong day, which is on me. The guy behind the desk was a jerk about it, but his boss made it right and let me play. Very slow play, took 2 hours longer than a normal 18. Tee boxes, and greens Need a lot of work. If I didn’t get the deal on golf now I would say it’s definitely not worth the price.

Pour Course Management

I grew up working and playing here. The starter was grumpy and not aware of where players were at on the course. The 9-holes took 3 hours to play. The foursome ahead of us were extremely slow and had 3 or 4 holes open ahead of them. No ranger to check on the pace of play. Offered to go off the back nine where no one was teeing off and no one on 8 or 9. Very unfortunate day. Makes me not want to come back and play again.

Absolute goat ranch

Pro shop attendant charged us (buddy and I) $8 each extra to ride in a cart despite the deal on golf now including one. Guys in front of us were going off the first tee barefoot with one guy walking and three riding. They took 15+ minutes to play the first hole even though it’s a straight away <400 yard par 4 and no one working said a word. Course was in awful condition, tee boxes missing grass, fairways with patches of weeds/mud, and the greens were closer to a nicer course’s fringe. As someone who used to enjoy coming here years ago it’s a shame what they’ve allowed to happen to the course and will not be going back.

Going downhill fast

No starter in sight so guys are on the first tee box barefoot thinking they’re John Daly and instead are hitting three drives in a row onto the driving range after going to their cart to retrieve a new one every time. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens with large patches of dirt/mud where good shots would land. Greens were like a good course’s fringe or the top tier courses in the area’s fairways. Not worth the money when there are so many better options in the area.

Slowest round of my life.

Way overbooked! It took 3 hours to get through 9 holes and not a single ranger in sight. Poorly managed and they completely took advantage of their patrons. Had a 12:40 tee time, was delayed until 1:00pm and then never had time or the patience to finish 18 holes. We were waiting 15 min. at every tee box with up to 3 groups backed up waiting to tee off on most holes. No apologies from the course management.

Horrible play experience

Staff was rude and approached our group almost every hole, telling us to pick up the pace. We played 9 in under 2 hours. Seems like they frown on the public playing there. Course was not in the condition you’d think the price and dress code would reflect. Will not play here again, take your money across the street to South Toledo Golf Club. Friendly Staff and same play conditions imo.

Nice course great value

Roughs could use some attention. Grass was very long hard to find ball when not in fairway, caused play to be slowed. Otherwise things were very enjoyable.

Early in the season

It’s a decent course. Fairways could use some attention. There were a good amount of dandelions in certain spots. It’s still early in the season though so conditions were as expected. Greens were in good shape.

AVERAGE

The staff wasn’t very friendly. No hot dogs or beer to get at the turn. The bunkers weren’t raked. The greens aren’t the best. Patchy spots all over the course. A temporary green due to a fallen tree that they’re too lazy to take care of. Out dated carts. I’m being nice leaving a 3 star review.

Took forever

Overall the course is fun to play and challenging but they need to spread out tee times or something. Constantly in a line behind 2+ groups

More like a City Course

I believe collins park 9 hole course is nicer than this. Fairways were filled with grass, roughs are deep to where you can barely see a ball, tee boxes are all dead and uneven, greens are patchy and don’t roll good at all.
