Terrible customer service

First course that’s ever refused a rain check for the back 9 because I booked on GN. Although they originally told me they would honor a rain check, played 9 holes for $35. Said they don’t get revenue from GN so they couldn’t give a voucher lol.

Pace of play was excellent

Was a great November day and the course was in great shape. The greens were firm and fast but true.

Good experience all around, staff was very friendly. I’ll be back again.

Great Pace of Play

Finished in 4:05. great pace. Course was very dry, hard to even get a tee in the ground on some boxes. Don't let the yardage fool you. I played Gold and didn't realize it was a par 70 so most of the par 4's are around or over 400 yards. That made for some really long approach shots even with a good drive.
