Great Course, Hard Course

One of the most challenging courses I’ve played, and have played many all over. You really need to think your way around the course is you want to score. No GPS so bring your own or by a yardage book. If you are less than a big hitter or an average golfer you’ll enjoy the course more from the white tees. Course in great shape, will play here again.

The course was better than our game

2 above average senior golfers were humbled from the Silver tees. A full 5 star experience which better golfers would appreciate even more. My advice on tee selection is to only bite off as much as you can chew. It’s a first class experience.

Extremely slow play, course doesn't mange pace of play at all

It rained earlier in the day and the course pushed back tee times and over-saturated course with players and never managed the pace of play and never told us it was backed up. Took 5 hours to play 13 holes and got dark. the last 5 holes we had three groups waiting to tee off every time. I called GolfNow and asked for a refund or partial refund and they offered a $10 coupon. Totaly ridiculous....Don't book here unless you want to only play 13 holes in 5 hours and pay for 18.

Wow! It took awhile for this to sink in, but, relying on your information, someone ahead of you took 6.9 hours to play their round. Just, Wow!

Anyone know how you can size up a group when they check in, and tell that they are going to take 6 hours? & refuse to change when instructed?

Really. Sorry I tired to help. You deserve your rant. Why not dispute the credit card charge?

Gosh, just trying to be helpful. No need to chew me out. I was just saying what I would do, or have done in my 60 years of playing golf.
What I hear you saying is the guy in the Pro Shop should not have taken your money because he should have surmised that the course was busy. If he would have done that, told you they were busy, would you have left?
(PS: &, in my 60 golfing years, I've never known any course any where, to do that, but . . .&, you do understand that it is golfers ahead of you who created your mess?)
Marshals need to have real power, and slow groups need to be dealt with, even to the point of being asked to leave if they find they've bitten off more than they can chew. They have a thankless job. Damned if they do and damned if they don't.
& golf courses need to have their marshals' backs, so when those slow groups whine about the marshal , , , , ,

Reply to Wanderer673539. First off don't act like you know anything about the day I played unless you where there. I've played golf for 40+ years and understand pace of play and when course is not managed. When it got dark we drove in and there were 7 groups (foursomes) backed-up on the remaining 5 holes in front of us, there was also 2 twosomes that drove in in-front of us. Also, there was a marshal driving around earlier in the day but he wasn't stopping to talk with anyone because he knew there where to many people on the course. All they had to do in the pro shop a 3:00 when I checked in is say we are really backed up. Nope they only wanted the green fees and knew it was a total mess on the course.

Pace is normally decent there, as the other reviews can attest. Obviously you got behind some golfers who made it a bad experience for everyone behind them. At what point did you call the clubhouse, at the phone number on the scorecard? Did you think about driving forward, past the slow group?

Challenging course

This is a tough course but lots of fun. It was exactly as described. We did not encounter any surprises regarding conditions, water available, customer service, equipment, etc. If ever in Branson again, we will play this course again.
