Tee blocks

The tee blocks could be a lot more flat, and kept up. Sand traps need work. But overall do to the lack of rain, I think it’s a good value.

No marshal to control non etiquette golfers

Willow pond let’s fivesome groups. These groups will not let faster groups play through. I had to skip a hole to get around them in order to keep from playing a 6 hour round . The course should crack down on these types of bad etiquette golfers !! Or stop fivesomes

Odd Course with Better Options Around

Strange little course. Not too challenging, but a few nasty surprises on the greens. Strange layout that I actually got lost on because it doesn’t follow a loop and signage is poor. For the money, Brookhill is a better option.

Disappointed

Booked the Tee times through your site. The afternoon was pretty wide open. Nothing was said about league on the back 9 on your site or upon check in. Ended up having to play the front 9 twice. Lots of goose crap—everywhere!!

The second time around was terribly slow—waited
I’m practically every hole. The group in front of us seemed to be waiting some as well. Not excited to return!!

Course was fine, service was awkward

I enjoyed playing this course, which I thought was in excellent shape. However, it took quite a long time to get us check in: first there was no one at the desk, then when someone arrived they were unable to charge me the correct price, then the person who arrived to fix the situation charged me for the wrong thing, and then was confused over the price I should have paid. Then, when I asked for a scorecard, the scorecard I was given was already used. I don't golf that much, but I've never had that happen before. It was all very strange. I still enjoyed my time and would play the course again, but it was a really rocky start.

Great Golf Day!

Played by myself! As I approached for a tee time there was a foursome getting ready to go and they let me go ahead! I flew around the course and finally played the last three holes with another person! Course was well manicured and the greens were in very good shape. Some of the holes are confidence builders, but overall a really nice course! After play had a grilled tenderloin sandwich that was absolutely awesome!! Good golf day! Enjoyed course and the people there. Booked tee time the night before.
