3 in a half hours for 9 holes

The Duncan golf courses use to be the place to go. Now I just hear from locals its the worse place to go because they stack the tee times so close together its miserable and golfers see a full parking lot and then just leave.

ENJOYABLE COMPANY

The course is in excellent condition and the price was about right. The pace was extremely slow as we had to wait on every shot. I know there was a tournament, and the starter was sent on course to try and get things sped -up, but it was still painfully slow.

The course is great. I have played a couple times now where I was left as a single in between larger groups without being paired up… if I was paired with other groups, either before or after it would speed up play overall

Enjoyable Course, Nice Layout, Good Conditions

I played here while on a trip to Tahoe. Well worth the drive down the hill to avoid crazy high greens fees on Tahoe-area courses. The overall layout is excellent with nice views and challenging water and sand placement. Course conditions were very nice. Pace of play was good enough. Some waiting. A nice course for the better golfer, with good length from back tees and lots of risk/reward types of shots. I really enjoyed it.

Unfortunately they had a number of groups qualifying for the Barracuda tournament and play was too slow. The managing director gave us several rounds of golf and was very apologetic.

Staff was awesome but was sent out with cart full of garbage. Course was in good shape. Pace of play was good up front but was terrible on the back. Overall not great but not bad.

Fun but challenging!

This course is a great course but I hadn’t played it in a while. I forgot how difficult this course is. It’s beautiful and really well maintained. It’s just not a course that’s very forgiving. If you go into it with a bad attitude then it might be a tough day.
