behind a foursome walking
Behind a foursome walking the entire round. Why would the course let a foursome walk on a holiday? Would not let us play through. By the last hole, had 5 groups backed up waiting on them. Nothing against walkers, but when your course is full, you should not have a foursome walking. There was 4 or five holes between them and the next group.
Waited approximately 20 mins past tee time for a cart to become available. Greens sprinklers went on at approximately 5:00 pm while we were on 15th hole. Staff not very accommodating. Will not return
Pace of play
Me and 3 friends played here on an afternoon tee time and really had a great time. Upon leaving though, we received a call from the ""Golf Professional" that said we had played well over the pace of play. We didn't time our pace of play, but we did NOT play slow and nobody was behind us pushing is. If I had to guess, I think the extra time was due to the fact that we stopped at the turn to get food and drinks before continuing our round.
All of us are average golfers who play at a lot of local courses, and never have an issue with our pace of play... If anything, we are pushing groups in front of us. I found this call to be rude and uncalled for and needless to say, I will not be back at Southern Gayles.
Trending in a good direction
Like the changes being made, couple of greens need attention, and looks like they are. No more groups of SIX, halllelujah! Will be sure to try the new restaurant
Tried to use a Groupon deal with this course. Took my wife as a rider but once we arrived we were informed that she couldn’t be a rider until after 3 pm. Additionally, they had paired me with another golfer. Neither of these points were provided to me with the Groupon deal and this information should have been provided by the course as part of the deal. Of course the staff only responded to this by saying that our rules are on our website. I didn’t purchase this through their website.
Definitely not worth the trouble for this low quality golf course. Definitely won’t be going back. Too many better quality golf courses around Athens/Huntsville.
Great Lil Secret in Athens, AL
Course under new management. Improvements to course and facilities are in progress.. Course is in great shape. Great value for the conditions. Played 18 with foursome in just over 4 hrs. Will be back and highly recommend. Staff very courteous and professional. Will have to try out that new kitchen next visit.
Lady friendly and Fun
If your wife or gal plays....this where you wanna play........no bunkers leaving loads of time to fix the other pieces of the golf puzzle. There reversing the 9's ....Im guessing looking for better flow.....Super friendly and the Grill is coming soon........
Fun Course, Good Value
Open, forgiving course. Great for the inexperienced player. Lots of shade though
Overall Good Course
This was my first time playing 18 holes and our experience was good at Southern Gayles. I think once the course gets it’s bar and grill running it will give them a chance to boost their customer service.
