Decent Practice Course

I've golfed Bowie on and off for the past 25 years. It's OK in the spring, but the grass doesn't stand up well to the heat and rain of summer. Some of tee boxes are impenetrable with a tee. The greens have the opposite problem; they get saturated. The greens are in nice shape compared to the rest of the course, but be prepared to fix a lotta ball marks on every green (typical muni conditions).

The Staff has always been the silver lining that makes the already low price not seem like a ripoff.. The Manager, John, is great. The Starter is great. The beer girls are great (and easy in the eyes!), but there's this one guy working the register that's extremely arrogant and hostile.

He actually followed me outside and tried to start a fist fight for not having my reservation confirmation with me....(like he can't see it in his system). He gave me the cart key like everything was fine, then began screaming! I thought it might be me, but others have complained about his abusive behavior and the starter apologized...that was nice.

If it wasn't for that, I might have rated the course 3-Stars, but no higher. I hope they invest in new cart paths soon. Golf Bowie one time and you'll see what I mean.

Great value for your money at this course. Greens were in good shape and staff was very friendly. Visiting area on business and didn’t have my clubs with me, the course loaned clubs for free.

Windy weather
Used cart

Not a four star course as claimed

Pros: The greens are in excellent shape but not too difficult or challenging.

Cons The fairways a very tight and under construction, having been recently sodded. Every green has a cart path restriction sign well over the 15-yard average setback, so there is a lot of walking to your cart.

To be fair there are 3 par 3s that have been recently sodded. No other fairways are under construction.

Great course rude staff

Staff member tried to charge me more than GolfNow booked price because the schedule was crowded bumped price from $25 per player to $29 I felt like he was pretty stupid to do that over $4 a player for 3 players. Played with a great guy named Tom that joined our group but didn’t need to be haggled for booking online. Staff should be smarter considering a lot of people book online

I’m sure it was just a mistake. Calling me or my staff stupid is in itself pretty stupid.

Packed

Had a midday tee time onCourse was packed at 1130am. A group on every hole. Booked a hot deal tee time for two. Was informed that the other two golf now hot deal tee time people would be paired up with us, due to the course was full. No big dea, and turned out to be only a threesome. Round took 4:30 due to packed course. Longer than used to on other courses.
