Brutal round

We’ve played this course many times and have been generally happy with it. Today however, there was a 20-39 minute wait at every hole. We finally skipped about 4 holes just to get ahead of the back log. It was painful waiting at every hole.

Never got to play golf because it was backed up about 3 groups of 4. ! No refund according to GolfNow because it was a hot deal. I lost out on golf with no compensation from GolfNow..

Painfully slow play

The pace of the play was so slow . I quit after 9 holes. The wait time was painful. This will be last I play this course. What a waste of my hard earned money.
