Was forced to skip a hole

My dad and I played here for the first time a few weeks ago and had a great game. We couldn’t finish as it was getting dark but still enjoyed it. We booked another round but wasn’t impressed this time. There was a foursome behind us that was getting to the tee boxes as we were all on the green. When we approached the 8th hole tee boxes a club employee said we need to skip the hole because there were three groups behind us backing up. He said we were playing slow but we and the couple they paired us with didn’t think so. We think they were playing fast. If they caught up to us we would of let them play through. I lost about 8 balls rolling into the leaves along the sides and couldn’t look as there was a group behind us, that’s not including the other balls I lost in the water or deep in the woods.
The cart paths are bumpy and aren’t marked well. We got lost and missed 3 holes at the end. We took the path after 15 but has no signs showing where the next hole is. We saw a green but no tee boxes. We went a bit farther and found some ladies that said we just come off 17 and showed us the path to 18. I know we missed some as it was the hole we finished in last time. We weren’t impressed and won’t be returning.

Great layout

Some of the fairways were so rough that you did not know if you were on the fairway or in the rough. Each hole had something interesting and challenging about it. If only they could spend more money on course conditions - it could be a very good course.

Very Disappointing

Majority of greens are being repaired. Very deceiving as first two greens are playable then remaining holes have temporary greens on the fairway. Staff take your money at check in, neglecting to inform you of the course condition. Quit after playing nine holes and the course staff refused to refund green fees advising that the manager will call me to discuss some form of compensation. Manager never called. Not the first time I've had problems with a Golf North course!!

SCENIC WOODS

Disappointed in aero ration and not being told up front. Just played 9 holes for that reason - The other 3 with me were all singles that felt the same way.

Scenic Woods is a fantastic course with good people and above average service. I was really taken aback that I felt CHEATED.

I will be back next year and we don't always get what we aspire - But WE HAVE LONG MEMORIES.

Temporary Greens ?? No warning ???

Perhaps my worse experience ever at a golf course.

I had other options to play at today but I chose Scenic Woods. Good price as a “Hot Deal”. This is definitely a “ Not Deal “. There was no mention of any greens under repair etc.

The first three holes were fine. Greens were pretty good. The remaining holes on the front nine were all temporary greens. A huge waste of time and money

I spoke with pro shop staff... three of four players in my group quit because of the conditions. Manager would call me tomorrow regarding refund or rain check.

A definite NOT deal

I had other options of courses to play today but decided on Scenic Woods. I hadn’t played there this season and now I know why.

I’m currently on the 7th hole. So far 4 greens are temporary greens. Maybe I missed it bu I never saw or was advised that any greens were temporary.

A complete waste of my time and money.

Family friendly course

I have played SW for many years, the course layout is great and you can see the golf course does keep the greens at their best. The course fairways are dry however as I see, it does not detract from many to go out and enjoy. The staff is excellent, from check-in to service in Clubhouse, including the GM that I find engaging and friendly. The land is set on clay base and the reserve for water is minimal, hence they can only do so much. Have fun.

Great course

Tee boxes and greens were in great condition (don’t believe the break you see...) and fairways good. A forgiving course with a significant amount of wide fairways. A few really nice risk/reward holes that rewarded the conservative with birdie possibilities and forgave the risky attempts with well planned clearings around corners.

Lots of water as a fairly wide river meanders through course so know your club distances. Not sure how buggy this course would be mid summer due to the slow moving water and farmers fields surrounding the course but definitely will play there again. Quiet pleasant and friendly. Priced nicely as well...
