Too slow of pace

Too many people were walking and very slow. They also not considerate other players waiting for them . It will take five hours to finish if we didn't call quite at 13 hole and it was getting dark quickly.

Horrible Customer Service

Just left the course after 9 holes. Going to the 10th at 3 1/2 hours not because the course was busy but b/ the Marshall was not caring. Call about 5 time and no one showed up. There was a hole and a half gap between the group in front of us and the group in front of them. Was told by the starter go get a replay. I was turned away and denied a replay at the pro shop. There excuse was they couldn't get a hold of the Marshall. The customer service is horrible. It sucks when you try to support a course and they just treat you horribly and don't care. Was going to set up a business tournament here but now I'll be looking somewhere else. Don't think I'll be coming back.

Ancil Hoffman Park Golf Course Review

Ancil Hoffman has been a great test of golf since it opened. The one negative thing is the slow play. In the past the slow play was stacked up on No. 2 or No. three. In this instance it took about 3 hours to play the back. The front nine was more than acceptable

Slow Play

A normal round on the weekends will take on average 5 - 5.5 hours. They put two 5 somes in front of us and the marshals didn’t do anything to get them to move quicker. Apparently one of them was getting married and told our group who was playing behind them that they didn’t care if they played slow or not.

The pro shop should never let 5 somes out on weekends!

Required to share a cart with a stranger

When I checked in with the starter he informed me that because there were already 2 carts out for the foursome that I would have to ride with one of the unknown golfers. Masks were required to enter the proshop yet Ancil Hoffman also has the requirement to share carts with strangers. The Starter said that I should keep socially distant on the course, which when I said that's impossible while sharing a cart, he just shrugged his shoulders. Amazing that this Sacramento County run course does not seem to be bothered that it has operating practices which are in violation with the intent of a mask mandate for Sacramento County and should be subject to a lawsuit.
