Anniversary round

Went to Oglebay to celebrate our 16th anniversary.
The staff was very friendly. The single, Marsh, we invited up to play along was a pleasure.
The lies on the Jones course were a real challenge. the only hole I didn't care for was #5. Hit my drive to the very top of the fairway only to have role the whole way down to the other side and into the rough. the slope from left to right is extreme. Makes the fairway obsolete.
will play the course again, though.
Looking forward to playing the Palmer next.

Always enjoyable!

This course is not overly hard as long as you keep your ball in play. However, if you put your ball in the wrong place the course has a way of punishing you more than what you might have expected.

it is late in season and with that in mind, course in very good shape, some bare spots fairways and around greens, but for november if good shape. weather in 50's and the ball didn't travel as well as it should so course played little longer, had to move up a tee to have chance hitting greens in two. with all that it was still very nice course some fairways weren't very forgiving, a good drive end up in rough or worse as most fairways are sloped and even with ball not rolling like it would in the summer some rolled through and into the rough. got off over half hour early and had no one in front of me was done in little over 2 hours, will be back when weather gets warmer next year.

Slow pace

Very nice course and layout. Some of the people shouldn’t be on this course. We had a bunch in front of us playing a scramble which should be faster but they were actually slower. A few of them I was watching in front of us, since we had TIME to watch, looked like they never golfed in there life. It took us 5 hours and there were a lot of groups behind us so I’ll bet they didn’t get 18 holes in because we just made it before dark. Very fast greens and what I thought were unfair pin placements. If it didn’t go in the hole it went off the green some times. Wicked fast. The people that work there are the best though. Very nice. I would go there again if the pace was faster. It will test your game for sure. Very tight mainly on the fairways. Wicked doglegs also.

1st time Playing

The course itself is in fantastic shape. Would have been nice to have really gotten to play 13-18. After hole 2 we started to back up. By time got to hole 7 we had 5 groups all stacked up. There were a group of 8 playing together then had 3 groups of walkers in front of us. Took 3 1/2 hrs to play 9. We started few mins before 3 and never got to finish our round before dark. Can’t believe they allow this on a sat afternoon. Never seen one course ranger the whole time. Would expect this on a goat farm course but not one of this caliber. Drove almost 3 hrs to play 12 1/2 holes. Been wanting to play this course for long time and was very disappointing to say the least

Just wanted to update on here since my round.General Manager Danny Ackerman contacted me and apologized for the slow play issues we encountered. He also went out of the way to arrange a make up tee time to replay. He didn’t have to do that and thought it was a class act. Thank you Mr. Ackerman

Jones Course

Course was beautiful. Greens were superfast. I was just not a good day. Slow players that refuse to let faster groups through. It took 6 and a half hours to play 18 holes. Unacceptable. Some kind of party going on at the club house and you could here people screaming and yelling all over the back nine. Very rude and I cant believe course management allowed this to go on. I won't ever golf here again.

Yes I forgot to mention that in my comment about the loud drunks on the deck hollering and screaming. Must have been one of the groups stacked up with us on 7. Horrible golf outing

Oglebay - Jones Course

First time playing the Jones course, and really enjoyed the layout and the reasonable challenges that the course offers. I am looking forward to playing it again in the near future.

I did play this course instead of another due to the great savings discount offered through the Golf Now application.

We played on a Tuesday afternoon where there was limited play, which led to another great experience in our pace of play.
