Rough Course Conditions

Played in the afternoon in the sun on a beautiful day. The layout of the course is challenging, to say the least. The greens were good, but the tee boxes were trash. I was very disappointed in them. Also, the range was garbage. We didn’t have any grass to practice off of. They weren’t doing any maintenance at all that would cause that, so I’m not sure why it’s like that. Lastly, I wanted to pay cash for some drinks, but was told they wouldn’t accept it. I understand the whole “COVID” crap, but when you can accept cash tips, you can also accept cash payments.

Frost delay

Drove down at the crack of dawn to find out there was a frost delay. Was notified via email but was on the road so had no idea. Range jam packed. Restaurant not open to grab snacks/food. Starter rushing groups out to “catch up”. First hole is forgiving so no back up. Once we got to hole 3 it was a standstill.
Can’t control the weather but things could’ve been handled better. Discount? A “sorry” or two? Starter could’ve kept the 10min space between groups to avoid the pile up starting on the 3rd hole. Took 4:20 to finish 16 holes. Not worth the $215 it cost. Sure the regulars love it here. Won’t be back anytime soon, bad taste left

golf cart disaster and trouble with the other players on the course

The pace of play was significantly slow, we waited probably 3-5 minutes on each T box and started about 4 minutes late, the people in front of us were waiting for the people in front of them so it was backed up, and the people behind us were hitting up on us especially on one green, I think it was the 6 hole where we are walking on the green and the ball landed about 2 feet from where we were standing. No apologies from the people behind us. This group actually complained about us playing slow although we had no control over the 2 groups in front of us. The golf cart #10 was giving us trouble starting on the first 9 holes and died on the 11th fairway and had to be rebooted by a golf staff which made us further behind in our play and then on the 13th fairway the golf cart died completely, we called 4 times trying to get help and we had to walk back after 4 phone calls did not result in any help from the staff. This was now past sunset. It is/was unclear that anybody actually came to help us. This is the first time in my golfing play over the last 10 years that I had to walk in. We did not expect this level of poor service from such a "high end course". Interesting that the group behind us, that hit up on us, were on the 13th fairway behind us and did not offer any help when our cart died, did not apologize for their close call hitting us.

Took 3 coworkers out as a reward

Everything was great and clubhouse/grille atmosphere dead but that probably byproduct of current rules w/ local government. Course was great and starter Marshall was very friendly w/ one of our guys who was new to game. Only weird thing experience I had was the check in guy outside. He weren’t out of his way to tell me he never had to pay for golf. Thought that was odd since I was on my way to pay 800 for my groups round. Just weird way to start the experience but my group got passed it and had a great time w/ each other.
