One Of My Favs

I love this course. It is great to play with couples. They have a putting range which I use all the time before I tee off. Highly recommend.

Slow play

Group of 2 people in front of us hit two balls each shot. It got so slow that two groups behind mine caught up to us and all 3 groups had to wait for the twosome. No rangers on the course to check on speed of play.

Challenging Course

Very nice course in very good shape. First of all the staff is excellent. The young man who is the starter and checks you in is very professional and makes sure you are all set to tee off. He makes you feel very welcome at this course. The course is in very good shape. greens are a little slow but that I believe is because of the change in weather. Club house is beautiful and spotless. All in all a very challenging course but worth playing.

Slow Play

The course does not monitor tee times. Two people had indicated that they were early for there tee time and than proceeded to take our tee time.

The people behind us were rude and would hit the ball when we were still waiting for the two groups in front of us to get off the green.

Poorly run, would not recommend.

Always enjoy playing Rob Roy, great nine hole gem. Be warned though this course attracts newbies who have no idea what keeping pace means.

Longer Pars, Pretty Course, Well Kept

This course was a fun course to pay on. It offers a variety of lengths with mostly par 4s, and a couple 3s/5s. The course itself goes around/through a neighborhood and it very nicely kept. A few of the holes feature water hazards. Staff is friendly and helpful. For our round on a Saturday afternoon the pace of play was average due to a larger, more inexperienced group ahead of us but overall enjoyable.
