Terrible

It took us over an hour to play the first two holes. Three groups deep waiting at each hole.. Terrible! We should get a refund.

Mulligan Course was in bad shape because it had not been reseeded yet. The back nine has too many residential roads to cross.

Pace of play was slow. Player assistants did not seem concerned. Some groups in front of us had two open holes to the next group.

PROSHOP STAFF SHOULD BE ON TIME!

The course is ok and the greens on the short course are just garbage! The King greens were slightly better but wet conditions and sloppy grass cutting are everywhere. The biggest problem was the PRO SHOP attendant was LATE getting there AND the range ball machine was broken so we couldn't even warm up properly before our tee time. The outside staff was helpful but they didn't even know what was going on.

Decent round

The course was being seeded. Cart path only and played the front nine on the par three. Wish I was told that was the case when I booked the round. Pace of play wasn’t great and it wasn’t our fault but the lady ranger was extremely rude. Threw us off our game. Overall a pretty course when you can golf the king course and take carts on the grass.

My apologies on your experience. We try very had to communicate the rotation during overseeding to everyone and are sorry that you were not made aware of this. Regarding the communication from the ranger, I personally apologize for coming across rude it was by no means my intentions, customer service is a top priority at Starfire and your feedback is appreciated.
Weather permitting, we are scheduled to have the King 18 championship course fully open October 17th. I look forward to the opportunity to make a better impression during your next visit. Please feel free to reach out to me personally if you would like to discuss this further.
Thank you again for taking your time to give me your helpful feedback.
