Where did my tee time go?

I checked in at the pro shop across the street. When I asked about my tee time, the pro shop staffer said the Marina 9 course was running slow.

When I checked in with the Marina 9 starter, who didn't have a tee sheet, he told me my Golfnow purchase did not entitle me to a tee time?! He said it only gave me the right to stand in line. He then pointed at a line of 16 players waiting to tee off! Instead of starting at 12:10 we teed off over 25 minutes late. From the first tee to teeing off on the second hole, 38 minutes elapsed. 4 groups were stacked up on the second tee.

The greens were in very good shape, but the tee boxes were sketchy, many just bare dirt.

Ladies' Day

Tuesday was Ladies' club play in the morning so the pace was quite slow since they did not play ready golf and mark every putt. I think the Club leaders should encourage faster pace of play.
Otherwise, it was a nice day out.

Executive Course Fun

If you cannot get on the big course or spend the money then the executive course is perfect. Par 30 allows for a driver and a couple fairways. So you can still use all your clubs. Thicker grass with Bermuda allow for any errors. Bump and run play around the greens. Great little 9hole for the beginner golfer and a solid warm up before the 18.
A 27 hole day is right up your alley. Have Fun.

Monarch Bay 9 Hole Course

This was my first time playing this course and I like the layout of the course. The pace of play was okay but it could have been better. I look forward to playing 18 next time I am there.
