Four holes destroyed

Golfnow really needs to inform users when golf courses are in poor condition. In this course, major construction is in progress. 4 holes have been destroyed. 3 others have been compromised (cut in half). Only 17 total are available for play. GPS is useless. Miserable experience!

Bad shspe

This course had been under renovation for years. It is much shorter now with 6 makeshift par 3s on the front nine. There is a lot of potential with this course but not playable now.

Sooo much construction going on

The front 9 is tore up and they really don't mention that when you book your tee time. They have holes split in two and others closed.

It was difficult to keep straight what hole you are on and scoring accordingly. I'll give it a year or more before I play again.

Not all that unusual

Shorecliff has been undergoing some major renovations over the last year- yet they continue to over book. Pace of play was so slow we quit after the 9th. Fairways were super wet also.

Let's do one hole at a time!

Played Shorecliffs since my early teens, now in my 50's. Granted this place has seen disaster with the floods, landslides and all that stuff over the years. Hadn't played it in a long time until just recently as our group had been starting to play there. A bit of over hyping it to my tastes. The greens have always been good. But the course itself has a lot to be desired. A good hard hole #1 which was a par 5 is now hole #1A and Hole #1B. ??? Was a par 5, now split up into a short first hole par 3 and a short second hole par 4. And the par three #1A is a temp green that is in horrible sandy shape. Then there is a clog on the #1 B hole because most decent golfers can reach it with a 3 wood, people waiting for the green to clear clogs it up a bit. Not a good start. I can see the need to have these alternate holes with the loss of #5 where the slides were. Re opening up the par 3 #6 or what ever # of hole it is right now is nice. Good looking hole. But then the Par 5 #9 is yes, a short par 4 and a short par 3 for holes #7 and #8. then #9 is on the other side of the freeway which used to be #10. What? Then more holes split up to make it a full 18 on the back. A bunch of patchwork. My suggestion is work on one hole at a time. But they dont, they have holes cut up in twos, because #3 is closed, #5 is none existent. Had #6 closed at the same time, doing work on other holes at the same time. AND #13 the up hill par 3 is an abortion. Hit an iron in the middle of the green, only to have the ball come back off the green, roll all the way back down the hill and into a mud pit. My ball mark was past pin high on the green. Granted from #14 and in, the course is fine, actually fun to play but the rest of it is always wet, muddy and way too much construction on too many holes. Think we will wait until they get the new hole built where the slides were and the course back to regulation before we return.
