Pin locations are crazy

I doubt any USGA event would allow some of these pin locations, two steps onto the green and /or on the apex of major slopes. Really not much fun. And a word to people who play there, fix your ball Mark's on the greens! Keep on leaving them and this course wont have the one reason I play there...decent greens.
Pinsetter....please just imagine your a golfer!

High grass

Tee boxes were overgrown. Rough area were extremely too high. Other than that the course is always a blast to play at. Still my home course.

Was goof

It was a busy day, pace was very very slow. I think they overbooked the morning, we had to wait 15+ mins at the tee box on every hole because the 4some in front of us was taking so long.

Course stacked

They stack golfers too close together. Pace of play was the slowest I’ve ever dealt with in 10 yrs. When ranger was told about the pace of the players in group ahead of us, he said he would talk to them but drove right by them.

Great course, best greens I’ve seen in a while.

The course was nice, few spots are under repair, if you don’t suck like me you won’t have to worry about it. The greens are very nice, healthy, and semi- fast. Great round

It’s not about the money

On June 12 I came to play golf at St. James where I’ve come before the pace of play was horrible considering the conditions that snowbirds are not here anymore it seems as management only thinks about money stop stocking players up and give us room to play reassess your business practice for the good of all golfers try another course don’t waste your time

Credit refund requested

You told me to go to Reservation, modify players or cancellation. I clicked on that hyperlink of yours and there was nothing to modify. Listen, I’ve been a member of your GolfNow for a very long time and I’ve probably played thousands of rounds by now. So stop treating me like I’m nobody.
I went and tried to play at The Champions Turf of St James course today but it was raining like dog and cat. I went in to the clubhouse the guy said he would give me a rain check but since I had booked thru GolfNow I will have to go thru you guys.
Listen, I just wanted to get a credit so that I can use it to play it at another time of which at the rate I’m going it could be every other day, so you guys are not going to loose any $ on me for that credit refund.
