My daughter and I played this course for the first time and it was fantastic! Loved the views and design of the course!
We played this course and found it very enjoyable. The fairways are wide open which is great for driving, and yet it is challenging when you get to the green. We would definitely recommend this course, and attend again
Cart Path only
We loved the golf course and totally understand the cart path only which is why they have kept the course in such great shape. It made for a long day with some waiting due to slow groups ahead - ranger was very good trying to move everyone along. It would be a tough course to walk due to some steep climbs but don't let that scare you - it is a terrific golf course.
Waste of a day
Where do I start? As a former club professional there are just ways you do things and ways that you don't. This place gets ir all wrong. From the waiver you must sign when you get in the pro shop to the 10,000 word rules and regulations that is an insult to anybody that has played the game it is just a pompous, overpriced, bad golfing experience.
I was notified by email that the course was cart path only. That is fine. However, I called before the 90 minute drive and asked if the range was open and if there were any other changes. I was informed all was good. After arriving the range was out of balls and we were told sorry. So now we had an hour to kill. Let's grab lunch. A $32 chicken Caesar salad and $22 order of 10 wings later we were off to the tee. We then met the starter who informed us that all traps were out of play. Some were unplayable but 80% were just fine with a simple early morning maintenance.
Once we started playing it didn't get better. Fairways had no distinction from the rough. No mow ines and about as long as a local muni. Greens were average. Play was slow (4 twosomes in 6 groups didn't help) and rangers who were ignorant and felt they were working at Augusta. I could go on about this issue but neither should be on a golf course. Absolutely no clue what their job entails.
For the record this is the first time I took the time to leave a negative review. It is not my style. However, it was that bad. I wouldn't pay here again if it was free.
The Importance of Warming Up
Lora Bay is a fine course, with excellent practice and warm up facilities.
However, I would like more time for warm up than the alotted 30 minutes, which must include getting to the first tee, putting and chipping warm up, so really only 20 minutes.
Of all the courses we have played in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, North America, and New Zealand. this is the only course that imposes that restriction. The management should reconsider, and put in adequate practice facilities.
Great layout but…
Tough day in the heavy wind. Some interesting and tough holes. Course condition was very inconsistent. Gravel in some bunkers not right on any level. Overall a nice layout but not worth $140 pp.
You need to put signs on the first and ninth tee advising that there is a creek XX yards from the green as the approach is blind. Unfair to first timers. On 14, my wife would have hit from up top as she thought her tee was probably part way down the hill. Disappointing to be only 100 yds out. Perhaps a sign indicating so women have a choice.
Time for some new carts. Seat ripped. Steering and braking lousy.
Stop Building Monster Homes and Reverse the Nines
Great course that hopefully won’t be wrecked as they try to squeeze more and more McMansions onto the property. Is it a golf course? Is it a housing development? And, switch the nines so that the course starts with a few manageable holes and not two visually intimidating brutes.
Course was nice, felt rushed with people behind us and the non friendly marshal. I feel when you pay that much money for the game hate being rushed. We ate dinner afterwards very small portions of food we left being hungry. Short staff but very friendly.. have ate their lots pre COVID but won’t go back to eat or golf..
Well defined risk versus reward layout. Fairways in excellent condition and the greens are quick plus challenging.
The Rangers need to be more understanding of distraction
Rangers always parked there cart as if we were a bother to them. As far as I’m concerned I paid to play golf and they were always there to distract our group we were on time and always were concerned of the rules that were in place. I think they should rethink the way they watch the course
Everything was fine...except the check in bag drop person....we arrived early hoping to hit some balls at the range when this person told us we could only get our cart and load up 1/2 hour before tee time.....well by the time we got the cart & loaded up our clubs...we only had 10 minutes or less at the range as we were told to be at the first tee 10 minutes before our tee time....who does this...who makes these rules....we arrived at least an hour early just so we could hit balls at the range...with the above rules...we had no time to warm up really....I was very disappointed and would certainly complain if it happened again....if I ever return to play your course...please let people go to the driving range at any time to warm up....this guy was crazy...no one does that.
