Super slow play

Pace of play was the worst I’ve seen. It took us 4 1/2 hours to play13 holes. At that point we were so frustrated we quit the round. Not once during our round did we ever see a course ranger.

Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Tamaracks Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

Awesome

2nd time I played this course. Great layout, awesome greens. Probably the best greens I have putted all year. That includes a trip to Harbor Shores. We played quickly, but I had to rate them as average for pace of play. We were first out after a most of the morning downpour. When we got to 10 a 4-some hade started teeing off and actually pulled away to the forward tees for the rest of the group to hit. No biggie, we decided to skip hole 10 and went to 11. Caught another group on 11 green. That group graciously waved us through on 12. Clear sailing after that. The course has a big sign on 10 telling players that groups coming off 9 have the right away. so apparently starting on the back is acceptable. Nine green is so far away from 10, no way a group could know you are on your way. Great staff, great course, but allowing golfers to start on 10, takes it down a little.

Great Course

Fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The pace of play was a bit slow as they were just finishing up an outing but that was to be expected for a weekend day.
