Need to Marshall the back nine

Course in decent shape, but the back nine was very slow, they need Marshall’s that drive the course and keep people moving…regularly waited 5-10 minutes on each hole of the back nine

Members need etiquette lessons

Enjoyed the course; good layout, good conditions, GREAT value! Traffic jam on back nine (no big deal). Threesome kept pushing the pace but there was nowhere to go. Later learned they were MEMBERS, who really should know better.

MY EXCITING GOLFING EXPERIENCE AT GREATWOOD GOLF COURSE.

My wife and I had a very exciting round of golf yesterday at the Greatwood Golf Course. The numerous penalty areas was a very big challenge as we lost many golf balls that were played into the lakes. Driving on the golf cart over a distance of what could make for a long Par 5 was both challenging and exciting.

This course is a goat ranch

Worst course I have played ever!
Dried out fairways, uneven tee boxes, dirty, smelly bathrooms.
A complete waste of money!

Quite challenging but course conditions could be better

Some challenging holes and good water features.
Enjoyed it but was disappointed with condition of some of the greens and parts of fairways. Not sure on the impact of COVID these days on bunkers but none had been raked.
Overall some interesting holes and a sub 4 hour round!!

Rain Out.

My partner & I were playing hole 10 & started to rain, then started raining harder. Drove into tunnel & waited till rain slowed. While there, we called pro shop & explained; we were told they would honor a rain check. Saw our receipt & told us we would have to go through GOLFNOW to get our rain check. Will call immediately afterwards.

As far as the course. It was in excellent condition & greens were immaculate.

No Marshal

No course management,

We complained about the pace of play, and found out there was no marshal. There were 5 groups on the number 10 tee box. :(
