Great course

Awesome course. Played a little late in the season so the course was a little over grown but it was expected for October. Really awesome course in the Black Hills

A beautiful fall day to play!

We have always enjoyed playing this course. It is in great shape for this time of year (just like it usually is every time we had been there). The beautiful fall day made the course features stand out and fun to play.

Tomahawk Board and Manager 86 me.

This week my Golfnow tee time was cancelled by the manager. After my earlier reviews and some emails I was 86ed from Tomahawk Lake Country Club. Very sad how I've been treated. Still, nice course. I grew up there and was a greens keeper there in the 70's. It took a PGA manager to show me that that doesn't insure professionalism. If you look back at my reviews you will see that it all began with how the assistant in the Pro shop treated me when I used Golfnow.

I've been asked to not return

The last time I golfed Tomahawk I returned to find a child behind the bar. This may not be illegal but I find it inappropriate. The child was the granddaughter of the bartender. When I informed the manager he said he agreed but that since nothing illegal had happened he would do nothing. He said something that he has told me many times, that he was working long hours and he didn't have the energy to deal with me. ME! he said that because I complained about the same woman's attitude when she found I was using GolfNow to register for a few different tee times. You would have thought that I had stolen money from her pocket. I do think the course would be much better off if Bryan would retire and they found a new manager and if Gerri would be managed better. He now has asked me to not return to Tomahawk even though all I have done is report problems that I saw and that I hoped he would find staff that would help him with the long hours he was working,

Golf with Nature Bonus

I have been playing Tomahawk for 70 years and still enjoy the natural beauty and opportunity to view Rocky Mt. Elk, Whitetail Deer and many other wildlife species along with the challenge this course offers. If you ever come to Deadwood,SD play Tomahawk if you love nature and golf.

getting better

I communicated some of my concerns about the clerk with the Pro. She was very rude concerning the use of Golfnow. There has been improvement.

Tomahawk doesn't like Golfnow

I grew up and worked at Tomahawk in the 70's. After forty five years I loved returning, except for one thing. Clubhouse management. I write this after purchasing a 10 round punch card, so this review is not done in haste. The manager Bryan seems to be burnt-out. His employee said more than once that they didn't make anything from online bookings as though I was taking money out of her pocket. A change there is needed and would make the experience near perfect.
