Never Again

Checked in and paid green fees almost an hour before tee time. There was a frost delay earlier that caused some delay and chaos. Witnessed a group of five tee off, none of whom hit the fairway. As my time approached I inquired when I would be sent to the first tee. My name was called after the other single golfer was already on first green. Staff did not seem to care nor did they even attempt to see if I could be added to a subsequent group. I told them to keep my green fees and I would never be back; they didn’t seem to care. Clearly, they had no interest in keeping my business.

It was good talking with you today. I wish I was able to remove my post but that does not appear to be an option. I will be back.

I apologize for your experience here on Sunday morning. A busy day, a frost delay and short staffed, did not leave us in a good position to take care of you. I am glad we had a chance to talk about your experience over the phone. I look forward to having you back out soon, thank you for your business and a second chance to earn it!

Never Again

I scheduled a 10:42 tee time thru GolfNow. Arrived almost an hour before my time and paid green fees. There was a frost delay that pushed things back a bit so I spent some time on the putting green. I noticed they sent out a group of five, none of which managed to hit the first fairway. As my time approached I asked the staff in the golf shop what group was up on the tee. They seemed confused but said I was up after them but they didn’t know the whereabouts of the single player I was pared with. At that point they called my name to be next up along with the missing player. I pulled up my card behind the group on the tee and noticed a single player was already up on the first green. The foursome on the tee already tees off and we’re headed to the fairway. Another foursome were already getting ready to approach the first tee box. I was reluctant to go off in front of them as it was clearly their time. I returned to golf shop and they seemed to care less about why I was passed o Er or how the other single golfer was able to get out by himself without being called. Clearly they cater to their regular players and members. No offer or effort was made to possibly hook me up with another group of two or three players. I told them to keep the green fees I already paid, though no offer was made to refund me in any event.

Course manager returned my call and made everything right. Wish I could delete the post but that does not seem to be an option.

Good fun

. This is a hidden gem in the back of an industrial area. You can smell the fresh bread when it cooking from the factory near by. The fairways are generous and the rough is penal. The gras around the green is thick and challenging. The pars are challenging and even the short ones are more difficult than they seem. The greens are just the right pace for me. Some of the t boxes were moved for winter which is unpleasant but understood. I score my best rounds here and always enjoy my time at blue hills golf course.

The homestead course

our round of golf was cancelled less than 24 hours due to vivid. I called the course and they were open . I asked about Gn and seems there's been a business cross up. We had reserved rooms and had to cancel. Enough is enough of this sloppy dealings with golf Now. Since the take over of tee off service has gone down hill. Prices have jumped in the 24019 area and timesare crappy. I'ma VIP now for years now and am feed up with you. Please do better. Your Hot Deal's are more than the walk on rates. Help me to stay with golf Now thxb

Love this course

Course in great shape. Greens had been recently punched but didn't affect role. I really like this course - if I didn't live 50 miles away, I would probably join this club. I still try to get up and play it a few times every year.
