Amherst could do better

I only started playing this course 8-9 years ago so that I don’t half to drive a half hour out to Akron to golf. The course has several holes like 4, 8,14 and 17. Their staff is very friendly and I know they are really trying but the course needs better drainage and faster greens.

Can’t recommend this course. Pace of play was abysmal. It took 2.5 hours for my son and I to play the front 9.

Golf course in Amherst

This course was mediocre at best! Hard to tell where the fairways end and the rough begins! The starter guy was awesome! Very personable and kept things moving. The cashier was also very nice.
This course could be so much better with a little TLC. Spend a few bucks on some weed and feed for goodness sake!!

Pretty decent

I was by myself I was three minutes late the starter told me , well it took the person at the register 5 minutes to find the price of golf balls I was buying . So he put me behind a 4 lol I guess he showed me ! The next hole they let me pass . 🤦‍♂️. A gentleman named Noel was extremely nice and helpful . Def would go back but they need to clean the facilities better bathrooms had paper on the floor small puddles but other then that really nice

Tee Time Troubles

Don’t allow 5:50 am Tee times if you don’t open until 6:15 am. You wasted our time. Course attendant acted like it was my fault for booking a Tee time before they open. Luckily we were the first ones off the tee at 6:20 because by then it was jammed up. Figure it out please.

Big Buffalo Surprise

We had an unbelievable time at the course. We played three times over this past weekend. The greens were perfect. You can tell the course is in a positive transition. They have done some really nice work on the back nine.It was a lot more challenging than we thought. We will never forget the 9th. Really thin fairway into the green that you can reach with a big drive. Audobon's staff was so nice to us, made us feel like we were members of the club. We are already planning on playing the course in the future.

Tee Time Booked to close together

The price was reasonable for 18 holes. The conditions were okay, almost every tee box was in rough shape. The greens were in good shape. My biggest issue was how closely the tee times were booked together. The Starter was very stressed out, he told us they were booking tee times 3 minutes apart. Also, out tee time booked on golf now wasn’t even in their system, and they had another group booked at the same time. The whole round we had the group behind us playing up the whole round. The starter should be at the first tee and should tell the next group when to start. Instead they just send everyone up to the first tee and have them wait in line, and it ruins the pace for everyone.

Mr. Feher, First off we appreciate the review and apologize for the poor experience in getting you and your group to the first tee. Our tee time intervals run at 10 minutes to avoid this exact scenario. The fact that your online reservation was not found in our tee sheet and we had to "squeeze" your group out is unacceptable. Please reach out to ndowhan@audubonamherstgolf. to further discuss. We hope to see you again soon!

Facilities

The course was in fair shape for October. The rough was deep and a ball could be lost only a few feet from the fairway.
The main complaint I have is the facilities! The bathroom reeked of urine. You had to breath through your mouth to avoid gagging.
There were people I assumed were managers in offices not 10 feet from the bathroom door but I doubt it had been cleaned in weeks.
Forget about eating anything there. If they can't clean a BR so goes the kitchen I'm sure.
I'm sure they'll say their short staffed...but a clean bathroom should remain usable for a couple of weeks I would think.
