Great value

Great value for the money. Staff is awesome, cool layout, some frustrating long par 3’s, great combo of fun and challenging. Management has done a great turn around last couple years. The course can get wet, but the drainage has drastically improved, job well done.

Suggestion, get rid of the parking lot practice green. The other one is perfect and the parking lot one is like walking on a 12 pitch roof.

Grid is ruining very nice course

Ownership needs to understand that having tee time spaced at 7 minutes (most other courses in area have 9-10 minutes between groups) make this course actually overpriced because players spend more time waiting than actually playing.

Lot’s of potential but poor

Big mistake to have a par 3 on the second hole, it creat a traffic and back things up, we were on hour in and still on the 4 hole. The course is really bad conditions, the greens though was like it belonged to a first class golf course. Hopefully they can find a way to improve, I’ll check next year.

Pace Of Play = Worst Ever

The pace of play today was as bad as I’ve ever seen. I play 100+ rounds a year. I’ve never seen such a neglect to the proper pace of play at a course. We waited 10 minutes on every shot.

The starters NEED TO DO better job managing the pace. They need to tell groups to hit the ball and play ready golf.

Course wasn’t in great shape but the greens were very good. Staff was decent.

Just oK

An okay course but not the greatest layout. A lot of hidden little streams that force you to lay up. A lot of the fairways are in awful condition though to be fair it has been dry and the greens were in good shape but slow. People were very friendly. Course is surrounded by houses so not the mist scenic although there are a couplenof really nice holes near the lake

Great value

Crystal Lake has been terrific value this summer. Even with the drought, the course is in very good condition, especially the greens, which are receptive and roll on the faster side. The clubhouse is the only thing that needs an upgrade, and I believe that might be in the works. The staff are all very friendly.

Mismanaged, slow, and boring.

5-7 minute wait at each tee. Ranger did nothing to help the pace along. Clearly overbooked. Layout was unexciting and repetitive. Greens were in good shape. Will not be returning.
