Golf Now is misleading

This review is more about GolfNow not really the course itself. They use temporary greens until April. We played our round in February not knowing because we booked through GolfNow. The course website clearly states this information so they are not at fault. Really disappointed in GolfNow as that should be a pretty simple disclaimer to add when booking.

Not notified

Drove 45 min to find out it was cart path only and all greens were temporary..they didn't even cut the grass to make it like a green. Place not worth the drive.

Hi, OVGC GM here. We’re sorry to hear you did not have an enjoyable experience at our course. We do try to give everyone a heads up that we are utilizing temporary greens and cart path-only by communicating this info on our website, booking engine, social media, e-mail, phone and tee time reservation center communications. We expect conditions to be closer to what you would usually experience soon. We appreciate your feedback, please reach out directly if you’d like to chat further!

Orchard Valley 11/16

It was a very pleasant day considering that it was mid-November. My friend and I were paired up with two men whom we had not met previously. They were excellent playing partners and the round went very well.

My major concern about course conditions was the quality of sand in the bunkers; the ground under the initial layer of sand was very firm and playing out of it was difficult. Also there were no rakes in most of the bunkers.

Hole in one

My playing partner got a hole in one on 12.
A stiff in the face wind had us hitting hybrids on relatively short hole, but the ball went in. We will definitely return.

This course is a great layout

The course was in excellent condition for this time of year, the greens moved well and the bunkers nicely maintained. The course is challenging yet fun to play.

Good layout, but course condition needs to improve

The course is fun and moderately challenging with risk-reward shot par 4s. The bunkers need sand and grooming. Tee boxes need repair, too. Fairways and greens are in decent shape, but public golfers wreak havoc by not repairing divots and pitch marks.

The price for an October round with a cart and aerated greens was a bit pricy.

Seriously disappointing

Seriously can’t believe our third in our threesome was asked to share a cart with a total stranger who also booked our time slot. The other option was to pay $20 extra for a third cart! Never had this happened anywhere the other three of us have ever golfed. Definitely won’t be going back!
