No smiling faces

On a 70° day in November you would expect to see only smiles and happy faces on the golf course. Not at Turkey Creek . No one spoke to us. Ranger was rude. We had to wait for carts to be cleaned. He parked a cart 10 yards from where we were standing. I had to ask if it was for us, to which he rudely replied, yeah. The lady in the restaurant talked with her back to me and took a few minutes to find a menu. We walked into the club house at the end of our game and must have had our invisible cloaks on. Anyway, we enjoyed our game because we are golfers. We are disappointed in the staff and hope that they were all having a bad day and not treating us poorly because we are also Black Golfers.

A nice round.

Was a very warm November Friday. Course was expectedly crowded. Pace of play was slowed, but it was still a most enjoyable round of golf. Hard ground conditions nurtured some fabulous roll outs on the fairways. Great day at an affordable price.

Worst I’ve ever seen

Unbelievable how bad the course conditions were. The saddest part is that there is obviously no signs of them even making an attempt to make it better. I was literally speechless. We were gonna play 18. We played 9 and left.

Potential

This course has potential. Cost me $15 to play all 18 with cart. Right now the 9th is under construction, so instead of being a par 5 it's a 150 yard par 3. Many cart paths are in serious need of repaving, but some areas had been recently repaved which is a good sign. For the most part, tee to green conditions were terrific, but some holes had patchy spots on the greens and fairways that need some maintenance. Overall a fun course with trees, water and slopes to contend with regularly. Not very long especially with #9 under construction, but in my opinion certainly worth the $15 to go check out a few times a season.

challenging and discouraging

The courses is challenging with water. Foe unfamiliar player's the next hole location is difficult to find. Hole number 9 shortened to a small par 3 but no indication until at green. Hole not repaired from pipe line work.

great for the average golfer

i have played here numerous times and the course is always in decent shape. it has a good mixture of easier and demanding holes. if you can carry the water holes you will probably shoot a good score. overall the course is pretty fair and not too intimidating.

Fun coarse

Lots of water, fun coarse. It rained all day when we played. There were plenty of shelters to go under. Even in the rain, good times.

Recommend but only for the price

Greens need a lot of work. Rest room locked. Distance to hazard on certain holes should be marked for better pace of play.

Needs some work.

The course has a nice layout with several straight away, fairly easy holes and some more challenging. I have played here before a few years ago and the course was in a lot better condition. Several of the greens and tee boxes are in need of repair. The grounds in general need some upkeep. And several of the ball washers were without water or towels the day we played. Still a nice layout to play with a nice staff and facility.
