disapponting

I have pla They can do better at Norwichyed this course many times. This time the rough has been left very long. I was told it was due to the excessive heat that the rough was as long as it was. But this case it was very punitive. It was so long and thick you could not find your ball in the rough. It was a very long round due to so many players unable to find their ball.
I did not plan to play under U S Open conditions.

Slow hackers

Course is always in great shape. But pace of play make you want to drive the cart into a wall. I guess this may be the new norm as everytime we play its slow going.

Decent Day

First—all staff were very nice—people on course were nice—just slow play. Course itself was good. For a high handicapped golfer some of the blind shots and the greens were tough. I did manage one 60 yard hole out on the 17th green for birdie which is a blind shot. We could have used a ranger to help out. The restaurant food was also very good, but also a little slow. Nice day

Nice course in great shape

This course is very nice but priced VERY high.
This makes it difficult to play there.
It would be nice if discounts were given to residents.

Very Slow

Course was decent and the staff were friendly enough but the pace of play was painfully slow, No rangers on the course to try and enforce proper pace

Pace of play is frustrating.

Over all great course with the super Caddy Shack Restaurant.
But the pace of play is infuriating! As all courses are in this post Covid era. Rangers MUST enforce time and hackers.
