Five star experience

We played Waverley for the first time on Sunday. It was a great experience. We booked online. The course is in great condition, and quite a challenge. It's not the cheapest course around, but that is justifiable because it's a top tier public golf course. We also appreciate the hospitality we got from the staff. Your front desk cashier was very friendly, and we saw two different marshals on the golf course, both of whom helped us look for our golf balls and let us know they were trying to keep the speed of the groups ahead of us moving for us. Afterwards, we got some food and drinks, which were good. We will be back for sure next year.

Appreciate the ranger keeping the pace going

It is a bit expensive to play Waverly but what you get is worth the money. The ranger has been running around the course, moving the slow players and watching the balls at the tricky spots just to help. Really appreciate it. Always pleasant playing there.

Friday

First time playing Waverly.... was impressed. Greens were lightning fast.

The course was packed but they did a good job of keeping things moving. a four hour round with 200+ people on the golf course is a feat in itself. It's very apparent that the staff here is on top of things. Very innovative to use your GPS units for pace of play.

Knew I was in trouble when…

I knew the greens were going to be speedier than usual when I pulled into the parking lot and the grounds crew came through the tunnel from the front nine with the rolling machines in tow. The course was in very good condition, the greens were hard and very fast probably 13.5 to 14 on the stimpmeter. Still enjoyed the day!!!

Great Staff

The staff is always polite, friendly and helpful! Joe in particular is very responsive and even took the time and effort to find jumper cables and help me jump-start my car using his own personal vehicle. Above and beyond! Thanks, Joe, I won't forget your help!

Aside from the staff, the course is fun, has an interesting layout, and is always in great shape!

Highly recommend Waverly Woods.

Good day for Cart Path

We played Saturday. Course was wet but in good shape. We couldn't believe how fast we played for cart path only rules. Under 4 hours on a day like that was incredible. It was obvious the staff is on top of pace of round. Will be back.

Friendly Staff

Course was in great shape... best around. Your pro shop attendants and starter was very friendly. When we reported slow play, your marshall was responsive and helpful with getting people ahead of us moving. It was obviously a busy day given the weather, but we had a great time.

Great Course….but

Great Course -really nice to the eye / not a lot of forced carries.
Greens were quick but not many people ised their divot tools!
It was a 5 hour round though!!! Staff apologized for the slow play- just wish they had Marshall’s to keep pace of play.
Other than that , just hard to play well when you wait an eternity between shots.

Sorry, I do see that your group played in 4:45. We did have two marshals out working with slow groups but were not successful in getting things back on pace.

Body not on the same page as mind

The course has always been great since I’ve played it first in the late 90’s
Although it was raining on and off I expected to play better but couldn’t get my rhythm and the course got the best of me
But as Arnold said (I’LL BE BACK) lol…
