Ridiculously Slow

Sunday morning plss as y is always slow, but this was painful. 2 people behind 4 so expected delays, but should have know an issue when 2 people off first t hit 2 balls each. Then continue doing so. People should learn golf rules of play. Third hole, player literally hit 2 balls into water, Walks slowly to cart 25 yards away, then back to spot. And hits 2 more balls into water.

1 whole hole open in front after 5 Holes.

Inconsiderate people.

Guess not the courses fault but they really stacked them up. I left after 9 when hit 10 hole and there was 3 groups waiting.

Hello, Roger6812702. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With a very full day, we work hard to control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Laurel View Country Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Long Way To Go

Played this course after hearing new management took over. New Carts are a plus and the course is starting to get cleaned up which is promising. With that said...it has a long way to go and hope it turns it around. However there are things that troubling.
Either golfers playing this course sorely lack etiquette or the club's maintenance is neglectful. More pock marks and divots in any green I've seen. Your ball bounces and hops to the hole on 14/18 greens. Sand traps under maintenance but no raking? Tee boxes were horrendous but could be end of the season.
Club let a 3-4 Foursomes go out and play a scramble...yet the guys are playing their own balls? (talked to the guys who said they were playing a scramble). Longest round of golf maybe I've played (5.5 hours). No Rangers enforcement here. If the club caters to 15-20 people, not promising for integrating with locals. Facilities pretty beat up but ownership could turn that around quickly.
Played Sat & Sun there as I booked late. $40/round thru Golf now $25 for a cart on Sat. $40/round direct and $15 for a cart. I asked why they charged me $25 yesterday, guy says that's the way it is...Not a great way to try to drum up public interest.
Overall, not worth the time/cash in current state.

Best condition in a long time

Played as first person out. The course was in overall very good condition- greens were best, fairways pretty good, tee boxes so-so (but this is least important). Of all the times I played, this was the best condition. Hole 18 was a pleasant surprise - the large tree that was blocking the left side of the fairway has been cut down! Makes the ending hole much more pleasurable to play.

New ownership issues

We had a tee time for a foursome through Golfnow and had it prepaid. Once we arrived at the course we were told that there is new ownership and that the price would not apply with a cart and if thats an issue he suggested we review golfnow so they fix the pricing. He said he would do us a favor by allowing us to rebook through him for an additional $100 for the foursome. Due to it being a weekend with the boys all over the country we ate the cost and still played. Awful pace of play. Nice course however. Unfortunately due to the Customer DISSERVICE we will not be returning (local residents) as there are plenty of options locally with friendlier staff.

Getting better

The course was in much better shape than I was expecting based on the other reviews. Most of the bunkers are not in good shape but you can tell they are working on that with a few of them featuring brand new sand. Greens and fairways were in good shape, the layout is a good challenge and I will definitely return.

The layout is challenging. The greens are super soft & furry. The course itself looks pretty beaten up. With some $$$ spent to bring the course back it could be a great great track.
