Very nice course, rude ranger

Great course in excellent condition. I booked as a single and was grouped with a Grandpa, Son, Grandson. Kid was like 11 and they had him tee off from the 150 marker on most holes. Were we a bit slow, I guess, 2 hours 15 to turn 9, but I've seen a lot worse. The ranger was a bit rude about it and didn't even approach us until near the green on 7 (they were only doing 9, me, 18). He comes up to me first asking "What's the hold up" and explained the kid is just learning and we'll speed up and play out of order So you have this young kid trying to learn the game and the ranger upset him, which ticked me off. If we were so slow, then how did I catch the group in front of me on the 11th tee. It was all a bit unnecessary in my opinion especially with only 2 full holes to go. I just think it could've been handled better. Other than that guy, everybody was friendly and the course was in great condition.

Worth the trip

I drove 45 minutes and I’d do it again.
Friendly staff, nice driving range, nice course layout. Has a good mix of precision and let’er rip holes. The greens were well cared for and the pin placements were nicely varied. All in all a fine course and a very good value.

Really Enjoyed This Fun Course

Really enjoyed a fun afternoon with three buddies at Fox Bend. Super-nice staff inside the clubhouse and on the course. Moved at a good pace and could have finished in four hours.

First time on the course and a really fun track for the money. For a group of monthly golfers, distance made greens reachable, while still challenging. Lots of really fun holes bringing water and sand into play that makes you plan shots, which is great for our skill level. Greens were tough too with lots of break requiring you to shape some putts.

Wrapped up with a great burger inside. Menu was broad and $ reasonable. Overall great day.

Pace of play

My only issue was the pace of play. Took me a little over 5 hours with how backed up it got and the people I was paired with.

Good park course

The layout was good. The negatives come from the greens. There were several greens where there were dirt spots from loss of grass. Plus many people who had played there do not fix the ball marks and that hurts the way the greens roll.

Best Condition ever at Fox Bend

I have played Fox Bend maybe 8 times over the 20+ years I don’t recall the course ever being in this good condition! There were a few greens that weren’t quite as nice but I believe mainly due to golfers not taking care of their divots/ball marks. I will definitely return to Fox Bend again and the 18 hole rate I got on line was outstanding!

Course and Staff

Can’t remember when I had a better time.
The threesome l played with was the best
I’m going to golf with them again. The course was in very good condition and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I’ll go here more in the upcoming months.

Nice track

Nice track, surprised it was in such good shape after all the rain we had. People need to repair their ball marks on the greens though.

A favorite, but...

I've been playing here since 1975. Great course. Today, however, was a little disappointed in the shape of the greens. Looks like they had been verti-cut and were not as smooth as they could have been. Also, a few of the greens had some dead spots.
