Very good greens!

Course in typical winter conditions, greens, however, were excellent. In addition, driving range open!

A New Favorite

Friends have been telling me about this golf course for a while but with it being 85 miles from me it is somewhat of an adventure to get to play it. Well I am very glad that I did. The clubhouse is modern, yet on the inside still very classy and has a wide array of higher end merchandise. The restaurant and bar is absolutely beautiful on the inside and I could imagine people would really enjoy sitting outside during the warmer months. The price was a little expensive for winter golf for my taste, but everyone has told me it is worth it so I gave it a try ($65). That price is on par with places like Hermitage and Gaylord for this time of year, so the expectations are very high.

The course itself was absolutely beautiful, they had a massive practice putting area with 10-15 pins scattered about and a huge driving range with decent range balls. The course has an absolutely amazing layout and was in perfect condition for December. The tee boxes were well manicured. The fairways still had some bounce to them and the rough was penalizing but not excruciating. The greens were lightning fast, which I LOVE, and they rolled true and really made you value being below the hole. Most of the pin placements I thought were a tad aggressive for winter golf as well as the tee-boxes on some holes i especially thought could have been moved up a little bit (one of the par 3's was playing almost 240 yards). But the pins were overall very rewarding if you know the golf course. Luckily for me I was playing with 2 individuals who knew the course very well and probably saved me 4-5 shots throughout the round. Golf carts are nice, well maintained, but GPS would've been nice.

My only word of advice if you play this golf course, make sure you have a rangefinder, not many markers on the ground in the fairways. Overall, this course is well worth the drive and a pretty good value for the money.

Great course for the price we got from GolfNow. Paid twice that last time. 2:00 tee time was not early enough to finish 18. We got in 15

Love the layout of towhee but it’s definitely overpriced for the course condition and what you get. Greens are great. Adding GPS to carts and making tee boxes better would justify it. Played courses for less than Towhee that have these features. If owners keep high prices, the “newness effect” of Towhee will wear off eventually.

The course layout is great and the staff seems to be good as well. Nice clubhouse. My issue with your course is the price for what you get. $85 to play golf on a course with no beverage cart, no water on the course, no real bathrooms, and the yardage markers are nonexistent. No GPS in the carts either. The tee boxes need to be scrapped and leveled out from scratch. A teeing ground is supposed to be pristine and flat. The tee boxes are mostly sloping from right to left and some have dips as big as 6-10" in them. Too much money for what you get and it is such a shame because the you have the makings of a wonderful facility.

Staff

While we were on hole 9 one of our groups drives went into the fairway on hole 1. We waited for the individual who was teeing off on hole one to hit his drive. Then we approached the fairway to hit shot. The individual came driving up in cart and was rude and cussing us for being in fairway on 1. He threatened us saying he worked there and would have us thrown off. Needless to say we went on about our game. We play here often and never have been treated as this individual treated us.

Would have been great to know it was freshly aerated and sanded

This course is great and always in good condition. Was just annoying to find out while walking onto the first green that they were aerated and sanded that day and day before. No mention online or in pro shop.

Nice course but never fails to disappoint

A lot of course improvements but definitely not worth what they charge. The only time i'll play here is when I can't get a tee time at the course I normally play. The round took almost 5 hours. We went into the restaurant at the turn and they informed us they had no food available even though they had a menu on the cart of food items available at the turn. They said it would be at least 20 minutes before any food would be ready - couldn't even get a hot dog.

Yard Markers

Interesting course that crosses the same creek on half of the holes it seems like; very poor yard marker system using only random sprinkler heads; if not on a cart, without a yardage visor, it is very hard to guage distances
