2/5

Golf shop staff was rude and unhelpful. Everything was in great condition, besides most of the greens which were patchy and filled with hard sand. Layout is fun and great views.

Great Course, excellent pace of play, beautiful scenery

10/10 course review. Second time playing here. The course conditions are amazing. However this time I played two of the greens were a bit disappointing (patches of dirt). Cashier gave me a bit of attitude. He must not like me. 3 incidents of clashing with him 1) he says I can get a cart 30 mins prior to tee time (usually it’s 1 hr and another staff member okayed me for 1 hr and ended up getting it 1 hr prior to tee time) 2) said in a resenting voice he doesn’t accept cash when I asked to pay for $5 golf balls. Ended up using credit card. 3) he just rubbed me off in the wrong way, he wasn’t even at the pro shop when I entered I had to wait 5-10mins roaming the shop before he entered asking if he could help me. Other staff members were very polite and made sure I got my cart and arrived to my first tee box on time. I love the pole idea of going in and out of the fairways. I would come back for the scenery, course conditions (-2 greens), pace of play, and accommodations of some of the staff members.

Overall course was in excellent shape except the greens need work. They were rough and bumpy. Excellent views and saw wild turkeys on the 2nd hole.

Greens are terrible. Fungus?

I love Wente but the greens are so bad. There are fungus / dead spots all over.

Bad experience at Wente

I had many good memories playing at wente before.
But I had a very bad experience at wente this time.
When I reserve the tee time at wente through Golf Now, I expected a comfortable play driving cart on fairways enjoying the scenery.
I never expect the cart would be cart path only for the whole front 9 holes.
I never expect the green is aired with sand.
I never expect the play should be stopped when 7:30PM while the sun-set time is still remaining.
I should not select this course if I knew above things.

Sanded greens led to a ragged game. Greens on some holes showed fungus or general deterioration. Course is otherwise in great shape

Greens sanded

Not really a fair assessment as the greens were aerated with excessive sand, but the rest of the course was in great condition. Love this course but $120 for a course you can’t putt on was hard to swallow.

Look forward to playing again after the greens have been aerated

Enjoyable layout, fairways in good condition, great views and carts up Lombard Street to start the back nine was different. The greens however were not in good condition, it will be aerated tomorrow, will be keen to revisit in a few weeks.

Course was great. Pace of play was not. Needed a marshal on the course. Very rude group in front of us slowing down play for many groups behind ours.

Greens Need work

If your going to pay this much for a round of golf, Go to Yocha DeHe instead, it's much better, the employee's have much better attitudes and they are actually Happy to see you.
At Yocha the greens there are much better, the Driving Range is much Better. The practice facilities are much better.
Wente just treats everyone like Cattle.
Wente is close to home and has a nice layout, That's about it.
