Rude staff / starters

I’ve never seen a starter panic so badly over a slow day. We arrived 5 minutes prior to our tee time at the box and she’s rudely asking if we are ready over and over while we are on the tee box about to hit. The group in front of us was only 150 yards out and no one in sight behind. Had the same treatment checking in at the pro shop with the older gentleman. Very rude, doesn’t want to listen to my question. Rushing me out for some reason. Just panic amongst the staff. Other than that the course fun. Fairways / bunkers could use more work for the price. Greens are nice. Overall a fun course and not a fun staff

Marovitz is a convenient place to golf in the city. It is right in the heart of the city and several of the holes are along Lake Michigan. I really expected the pace to be very slow being a Friday at 11:00 but was pleasantly surprised at how the friendly rangers kept things moving. Given the amount of play they get, the course was in very good shape. The greens were in very good shape and true as were the tee boxes. This is a legitimate part 4 course especially if you play the blue tees. There are many trees but the fairways are pretty wide. Overall, it was a very good experience and I will definitely return.
