Great value in afternoon
Course condition was a bit dry but ok overall. Greens patchy but flat and true. Great value at $30 for nine. Booked again for tomorrow!
3x @ Wilderness
Went back because I found a hidden gem. Seems many have found the gem, because it was a lot more crowded. Still a good course for the money.
Windy Day at Club River Wilderness
We play this course a few times during our Winter stay in the area. The layout is decent and challenging. It was a very gusty windy day and the course played longer. The greens are a good fast pace however, the fairways are in need of better maintenance with many areas patchy with sand and no growth. We do our best to fill every divot that others failed to do, while waiting for groups. If everyone did the same, it would help; including fixing ball marks on greens! The bunkers are the worst in the area. It's a dark gray heavy sand that you should avoid bunkers at all costs. Staff is always friendly and receptive.
The Greens are good. The course is dried out so you get good roll but the fringes are not in good shape and the GPS system will make you back off the par 3's even thou they are in desert condition.
Local members jump in front of us after the starter had given us the playing order. The staff was fantastic at the course.
Wilderness great, golf okay
Birdwatchers delight, but golf conditions marginal. Great practice for tight lies in fairway. Greens look awful but putt okay. Our experience With staff was very good. Course layout was very good.
Total disconnect between pro shop & starter
We arrived & told we were paid in full and meet the starter out front. Upon meeting the starter we were told he had no record of us having a tee-time. He made us feel he was doing us a favour by putting us in behind a single who was obviously not a golfer. He proceeded to tell the groups behind us that GolfNow never tells them when they book tee times and he had to let us in. The 4some behind us bypassed us on hole # 1 and went ahead of the single in front of us. I’ve never experienced this kind of behaviour at a golf course with the starter. Luckily for us the single. Player in front of us only played 9 holes so the back 9 was more enjoyable.
Still has a long way to go
Decided to give another try due to recent reviews saying conditions were improving., as I used to play here often, but the course took a severe decline a couple years ago. Arrived just in time for tee time & they were accommodating & understanding due to several people being late after getting stuck in a big accident on I-75. Having no time to warm up, was taking a few practice puts on first green ( I was on in regulation) while rest of group was hitting approach shots.....ranger drove up & started berating me. Explained to him I was just taking a few putts while rest of group came on....Simply uncalled for & he was simply downright ignorant & rude!! Course review....Tee boxes generally were fine, fairways extremely thin ( why do you cut them so tight when you barely have any grass??) & a lot of bare spots, but if your group agreed to "roll the ball" ( we usually play them down) they were playable. Extremely hard to get under the ball with any lofted irons, and almost impossible to hit any Flop or Lob wedges around the greens. Bunkers very light on sand & what there was, was full of rocks & small stones....definitely not regulation bunker sand. Greens, simply atrocious. Every one covered with green sand( again pebbly), you really had to strain to find real grass, but surprisingly, they rolled OK, but they look AWFUL, and you were basically putting on sand, not grass.This course needs a heavy dose of fertilizer & seed, and allow the fairways to grow!!!! It's nothing close to what it used to be a few years ago...... this course was always plush & manicured with phenomenal greens. A lot of new cart paths, newer carts with GPS, so its obvious they're putting money back into it, but it has a LONG way to go to get it back to its glory days. Without a doubt, worse conditioned course I've played this season, but It is a GREAT layout!!! I'll give it a month & give it 1 more try!
We gave it a chance after reading recent reviews about how they improved the course since last year. The course has a great layout but is in really bad shape. The staff was extremely friendly and the hot dog lunch special was to die for!
Hidden gem of a course. Sits deep in the development, but in decent condition and very challenging to an intermediate golfer. Free range balls and a grass range are a big plus.
2x @ Wilderness
My second time playing this course and enjoyed it again, in spite somewhat slow play. Round took about 4 and a half hours, but we were slowed by a few groups playing in a tournament ahead of us.
