First time playing
The course was nice and a perfect place for a round of golf. Total time for 4 players was 3 1/2 hours.
The stuff was extremely rude due to the fact we purchased to play through golf now.
I’ve been playing this course for over 15 years and this was by far the worst experience I had. The “golf pro” was extremely rude. I was waiting for another member of our tee time to show up. He was 4 minutes late and the pro was refusing to let us play. I could see the issue if we were maybe 10 minutes late or if the course was full, there was nobody on the course. The “golf pro” was rude due to the fact I paid through golf now. After going back and forth for about 15 minutes he allowed us play. By far the rudest, most unprofessional I’ve ever encountered at a golf course.
Pro shop person was great, woman at the bar in the morning acted like it was a pain to serve me a Powerade, starter was okay, pace was slow but not horrible as there were lots of people out after Christmas. Played 2 days and remembered why I don't play here, THE MEMBERS! They moan about non MEMBERS, but they don't say anything about the money non MEMBERS bring to their SEMI PRIVATE CLUB.
Very friendly staff course was in very good shape not a long course and not a lot of trouble greens very rolling with false fronts and sides best prices are on golf apps and course website have fun I will come back here to play
I enjoyed the course and the threesome I played with!
Do Not Expect Accommodations to be made
Booked a 2-some and brought a 3rd person to join. Was told GolfNow “automatically” pairs you with another 2-some and that our 3rd was not allowed to play. I’ve been booking GolfNow for years and it is the first I’ve heard of that. I understand bringing a 3rd isn’t a guarantee, but the attitude and complete unwillingness to compromise was incredible even after we told him we would wait, play a scramble or split up. Cocky attitude and complete smugness was what was displayed. They’ll never received another dime from me.
Pace of play - CPO
With the course being cart path only because of the rain, we were waiting on every hole the whole day with no one checking pace. I know here is only a starter but you’d think the pro would marshal the course since it was so packed.
Needs capital improvement. Range, range balls, cart paths, tee boxes, pro shop and grill all need help. Greens ok. Value is there for $27. Could be a better experience.
Snobby statement: get the blue jeans off the course.
90% of the greens were small "postage stamp" greens. They were all humpback constructed. If you didn't hit the green in the middle 2/3 of the green, your ball rolled off into the green side rough or sand trap on all 4 sides. Parallel fairways throughout the course. Was constantly worried about an errand shot.
Very nice course
We golfed this course last year n now again this year.it was very enjoyable.would n will play again
The course was very wet cart path only, it was still a good time the price was right not to busy the greens still had a decent bounce all in all a good time the staff was friendly.
Nice course layout. All of the fairways were brown, probably because of the cold weather. Greens were very fast and looked like they had been spray painted green.
Very pleasant and helpful staff.Pace of play great as it was a week day and temp in low 60’s.
Wet and slow
My wife and I played a couple of days after a soaking rain. It was cart path only and didn't look like the course was busy but we found out quickly. There were two groups of fives ahead of us and that combined with no carts allowed on the fairways or roughs, it resulted in a 4 3/4 hour round that could have taken 3 hours. The course allows five in a group but it also allows each member of the club to drive a single cart. 10 carts stacked up ahead of us really tried our patience. Other than the above info it was a very nice course that was challenging. I caution anyone who wants to play this course to select another day other than Monday/Wednesday/Friday at about 1100 to 1130, which is a weekly member group.
