Disappointing

Many tee boxes were not in use.
Many fairways were not accessible by carts.
And, at least one fairway had cart signs where the carts were not programmed to operate!

Unimpressed

For $150 dollars, I expect to play an elite public course. I was thoroughly unimpressed by Black Gold. Not from the area, but locals had recommended. Rough was uneven all over, greens rolled to about an 8, maybe less. About a week after aeration but no notification. I feel robbed, honestly.

Great course

The greens were a little bumpy from being punched but the price was reduced so it was expected. The layout was fun and challenging and the fairways were perfect.

Mislead

Did not inform us that the front 9 was being punched, had to play the back 9 twice. Not ideal for the money spent, also caused large back-up on hole 10 with no starter assisting. Tee’d off 20mins after our scheduled tee time, did not finish the final hole due to darkness (would have if we tee’d off at our scheduled time)

Great conditions

The course looked phenomenal! There was a little rain early this morning so the greens were running slow but the fairways, greens and rough all looked almost immaculate and was fun to play!
