A family get together and outing. Fun. All the staff were very friendly. I was hoping the course would be in better shape after the long Covid break, but it was fine. One of my favorite courses.

Staff is better than you

The staff here was zero help in any way. My dad and I placed this tee time 48 hours in advance and were excited to golf here. While placing the tee time I called to make sure they had clubs my dad could rent (I am lefty , he is not) they said of course they could accommodate. When we got here we were told we had to pay an extra $50 to rent their “elite” set because the regular clubs were out. I asked if there was any way to just get the elite clubs for the same price since I was told there would be clubs provided. The staff told me to pay $50 or don’t golf. That was the ultimatum they gave us. We decided to play elsewhere.

Disappointed

Normally a great course to play, but slow play & sanded greens (which we were not informed of when making tee time) made for a not so good day. It was evident all day where the hold up was (2 groups in front of outs), but no marshal around to say anything to.

Perfect for family

Played yesterday with wife and another couple. This is the perfect course for that as there is almost no big hill and valley, water usually not in play. Ladies liked it, no loose balls. Will come back again.

Disrespectful Staff Member

I have played at Admiral Baker a few times and each time has been great except for my most recent experience. I have been playing golf almost my entire life and try to play at least twice a week. I have never been so disrespected by an employee during a round. We were about to tee off from the middle tees when the employee keeping the pace came up to us and told us, “You know there’s ladies tees up there.” Mind you we were right on pace right behind the next group and we hit further than most the men we see and play with. He had not even seen any of us play he just assumed we should be playing from the ladies tees. I politely told him that we do just fine from these tees and he responded with, “Doesn’t look like it.” We will not be returning to Admiral Baker where this employee will certainly not be reprimanded for his blatant sexism. Ladies beware! There are plenty other courses to take your business where you will not be disrespected and chastised because of your gender.
