Governors Towne Club

The starter there runs a tight ship and I love it. The course was in great shape and they did an outstanding job of keeping leaves off the course.

Beautiful course

Will definitely play here again. Wide open fairways, beautiful greens, well maintained course, challenging. A bit pricey but worth it.

Worst golf experience

Way over priced for conditions of greens. Members are absolutely rude and inconsiderate. Had a confrontation with a member for a ball going “near” him that led to him driving down to threaten me, continued to harass and follow me threatening me the whole time. No acknowledgement or apology from staff. Absolutely ridiculous. Will never go back or recommend to anyone.

Immaculate Course

Excellent day on the course. No pressure behind us which made for a relaxing round.

T-boxes were well maintained and level everytime.

Greens had been sanded but not bad. Slow.
Fair pin positions allowed us to have fun.

Course Closed

The course was closed when I arrived. They said they were not responsible for reservations made thru the site.

I was a member their for 7 years add truly move the course but they have had a severe disease problem on the greens, hired a new superintendent who made the decision to close Tues and Wednesday for aeration.

Very frustrating given it’s an hours drive. It seems logical your sire would have been notified an issued an alert to all bookings.

Average at best

Tee boxes were average, greens were crap, local members had no consideration for visitors. All in all it was a great mediocre course. We had a 3some and typically play fast, members were driving down on every other hole and made comments about damage on previous greens, basically insinuating that we caused such damage, which I can assure we did not. May be a great course for members but for someone who was looking for a club to join, I will continue to look elsewhere. The level of disrespect and blatant disregard of a “member for the day” has completely taken this club off of my list of “clubs to consider”.

Great Track but greens are in bad shape. Not what I expected

I have played Governors Towne Club many times (10+) and have usually had a great experience. Writing this on 10/14/21, the greens were in bad shape. They had not been cut, rolled soooo slow, bumpy, and shaggy. Some of the greens have rot in them as well which is just a tough look for such a nice property. The layout is really great, fairways are wide open and it is always a refreshing round. It was just a tough scene on the greens and many of the tee boxes as well.

Course conditions

T boxes heavily worn and a lot of bare spots .
Greens were in bad shape with root rot of some sort. Putting was not true and ball rolls were haphazard made more difficult by the extra sand they were laying down. Driving range and facility as a whole were good. I have played this course 4-5 times before in past years and it now needs a lot more work.
