Bad staff friendliness

I was treated like a bad person because I was a single golfer. The ranger was very rude when I wanted to play ahead of a foursome

No carts, lack of control for your scheduled tee time?! What a joke…

I set up a tee time 3 days prior to golfing, I arrived with my party of 3 40min before our scheduled tee time, the check in process was relatively quick but nothing was stated about a possible cart shortage by the staff inside and no directions were given as to where hole number one was in relation to the club house or where to obtain a cart. We bought some drinks for the cart and walked out with 25min left until our tee time, we walked up to the cart shack and stood in line for a half hour with several other groups that were all waiting for golf carts… the whole time we stood there not a single word was said from any of the 4 staff members that were working outside at or near the cart shack.. I have never witnessed this lack of respect before in my life at golf course…. A club running out of carts and putting everyone’s scheduled tee time behind right off the bat is bad enough but pair that with a rude staff that can’t even acknowledge that your waiting there or try to apologize for not having enough carts or to offer some sort of explanation as to why we were all waiting there… come on get your stuff together, customer acknowledgement is 101 core basics for anything in the hospitality or service industries, it’s the quickest way to build a reputation (could be a positive or a negative) It was rather apparent that they over booked today and allowed to many walk ons and because of it every hole had an over extended wait(some times 3 groups at one tee box), there was no ranger present to help keep the pace of play up and because of the lack of any authority there were groups leapfrogging around the course, at one point a random 4 some some how got in front of us halfway through the back nine…

The course itself played well but the lack of customer service and obvious issues with groups playing multiple balls on each stroke, groups jumping from hole to hole, and the lack respect to the patrons for a scheduled tee time is enough for me to say that I will not be going back anytime soon… It was so dysfunctional and unorganized that one of our members elected to leave because only one cart came in so two of us went to get started ( already late to our tee time) he waited another 20min for a cart before he finally said screw it and left to go home. So I paid for one cart and one round of 18 that was never able to be utilized. I tried to call and talk with the course manger but I received no answer multiple times when I called. This was a very disappointing experience to say the least and I would not recommend going here because of it.

Wonderful Round Of Golf

Excellent course with a wonderful layout. My only constructive feedback is the dirt driveway, parking lot and very dated Golf carts.

Great Layout

Great course layout. Tee boxes were hard to get my tee into. Greens were rough. Again, course LAYOUT was awesome. Need to fix up certain things.

Great Layout - disappointing greens

You can play fast. It’s a course with no tricks. Hit it straight and you have a chance to score. But, played early AM round and the greens weren’t cut until we go to 17. So, they were really slow. Also, temporary green on #10 that no one said anything about in the pro shop.

Great course to play

Played as a 4some. Great course and never waited to hit. Nice layout and pace of play. The only negative comment I have would be vending machines on the course. They had a few but some didn't work. Other than that, I'd go back again.

Greens were a little rough, course was in great shape

Excellent course, pace of play was 4 hrs and 10 minutes, didn't wait on 1 shot, people, fix your ball marks on the green and pick up your feet.

Nice Walk

Nice layout; Easy walk. My only complaint is teeing off at 615 and by the time we finished at 930, we never putted on a green that had been mowed. But, if you play early in the morning, that’s usually what you get...
