Golf Now issues

They don't know how to charge GolfNow customers. I put down a deposit to reserve a tee time and I still get charged full price at the course.

It doesn't make sense that you use a reservation platform and then you blame the customer because you don't have the right buttons in your system.

All greens need to be replaced.

The layout is great the greens are terrible practice range is bad but the staff is great.

If you're looking for a practice round okay. But until they give this car some TLC don't pay for rate

Good Local course

The course was in pretty decent shape. I think they are getting ready for the "season" finally with the pandemic going on...Pace of play was great. took about 3:30hrs for two of us. Greens were not in such great shape but the fairways and rough were in good shape. Staff are friendly! I'd come back and play again.

Playing with my friends

The course looks tired with no grass on tee boxes and greens as hard as a rock. Some of the greens had bare spots covered with green sand and it's a shame that it's got Arnold Palmer's name associated with it. I would not pay more than 25 to play the course again.

Birkdale

We have had alot of rain over the last month. All course are cart path only at this time and Birkdale is no exception. Half of the bunkers are filled with water. Greens have improved over the last 6 months but were a little slow. Overall about as good as the course can be in the middle of a very wet winter.
