Please stay away from this place

First things first was greeted by a very rude lady who would not show respect to anybody in my group. The course itself is not in bad condition but the issue I had here was with the staff. My group was playing and on the second hole and a cart with the rude lady from before was coming around to what seemed like check on pace of maybe or something else you’d except. Nope, while my group was on the Teebox she proceeded to stop next to our carts unzip and open up our bags and start searching through. This is something that I’ve never seen before and was completely shocked, when I told her in a very nice tone that I didn’t appreciate her opening all of our bags she then cursed me out saying she would call the police because she found an old beer in the bottom of my bag that had been there for months and I had already bought alcohol from the pro shop and this still happened… The beverage cart lady was very nice and the only staff member I had good encounters with, she was great.

In the end I will never recommend this place to anybody or ever return based on the fact that they feel like they have the power to search through your golf bag at any point and completely stereotyping my group Because when I played the same course with an older gentleman a month ago they were very respectful and did not search our golf bags.

Too Expensive!

I’ve played this course probably two dozen times. Honestly College Fields is probably my favorite course in the area, but I can’t afford to play it anymore. It is cool and the links style is unique for the area, but it’s overpriced. $67 for 18 holes?! That’s obscene especially when most customers are college students who are already tight on costs. Worse yet, I was told by the pro shop worker that the beverage cart was out on the course when in fact it was not. On the day in question it was nearly 90 degrees and I became severely dehydrated and thirsty. At the end of the day, this is a $45 course masquerading as one charging $67. Shame.

Fair Value

Pretty course, no issues with pace. Greens were recently aerated (is what it is), only issue was 4 greens on the back 9 were so heavily sanded I picked up and moved on.

Was very pleased with the course layout and conditions. Course was by no means easy, but very fair. Huge fan for the price and will most definitely be back!

Poor Conditions

I've played this course in the past and it's usually in decent shape, but not today. Most of the greens were aerated with zero warning (the practice green, holes 1-3 and 10 weren't aerated) and there's no way I would have played for the price I did if I had known about the aeration. Whoever aerated the greens didn't know what they were doing as they lazily only applied the sand that fills in the holes on maybe half of the surface of the greens. The bunkers were absolutely terrible, most of them had little to no sand left in them and were just hard-packed dirt. Needless to say, I was very disappointed with the experience today.

Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve, and we are working towards getting things up to par. Thank you for playing College Fields Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
