Course closed

I made a tee time on Golfnow on Friday October 1st to play on Monday October 4th. I drove 35 miles to get to the golf course 45 minutes before my tee time at 11:52. When I arrived at the course I was greeted with a sign that read " Course closed indefinitely due to new management". It is sad that customer service is so poor that no one from course or Golfnow contacted me to cancel my round. Not only did I waste time travelling there but I also didn't get to make a tee time somewhere else to play. I had to contact Golfnow to get a refund.

Bowie, with the closing of some nearby courses, has become very popular. Nevertheless, the course is still fun to play, with many interesting holes. On Golf Now, great value. My one request is that they once again allow tee times to be booked on-line. Most of us just don't want to call the clubhouse and go back and forth on what's available.

Good for a Public Course

Bowie is usually in pretty good shape for a public course and is a good value for the price.

GREAT BANG for the BUCK!

Bowie is a great value - moderately challenging for mid handicappers and beginners probably not a challenge for single digit handicaps but.... that's not me so.... :-)
