Gimme some yardages

Nice course, poor condition. Much ground under repair but not marked.

New sod in many places, bunkers and alongside the greens

It was cart path only, no surprise as there has been a lot of rain recently.

But .........

I had to walk all over the fairways to find a yardage. Would it kill you to paint at 100, 150, 200 and 250 on the cart path? Remember, it was cart path only and so iad to walk out to my ball hoping to find any marker, this is not acceptable at $65 weekdays.

Let's not forget, no outside food or drink allowed, no cart girl and no water on the course.

It's an easy course, I'm a bogey golfer and shot +4 on the back. For that I was glad. A little work on common facilities would make it much better.

Nice layout, especially the back nine

Front nine does have nice houses on the course. Back nine doesn't have any houses on it. Really enjoyed the back nine layout. Greens are bent grass and were in perfect shape. They were quick and super smooth with lots of undulations. Really enjoyed the course. Played in under three and half hours. Very reasonable prices. Highly recommend, five stars.

Tough to get to but worth it.

Nice course. Well maintained. The greens were a little slow for my liking but that’s a personal preference. Probably 8 or 9 on the stimp so they we not bad by any stretch. The staff is very accommodating and all in all a nice experience.

Almost Criminal

After being charged $140.75 we were unable to travel because of restrictions living in New York State. I called, emailed, and text both GolfNow and the course sharing our circumstances. I was basically told that all will be fine, reservation cancelled and no charge to the card used.
Well, that really was a lie. I was charged after many communications with recorded, chat sessions, and even three people at the course. I was never even in the state on July 3rd to enjoy the course.
Anyway, our only option now will be to dispute the charges with the bank I guess.
Nobody at GolfNow will even talk about it, everything is back to a chat online that is nearly impossible to start.

I will avoid GolfNow and their criminal tactics.
