I took advantage of the Hot Deal and paid ahead for two players. Unfortunately, my partner had to back out at the last minute. I think that the no refund policy. should be reviewed. The rules said that they could pair me up with other golfers at their will but the volume of players did not warrant doing that this time and I played alone. In cases like this it would be fair if they could refund some of the cost..I was willing to golf with someone else but no one was there to do it. Also the gift card(s) I tried to use the system could not identify which negated their value.

Nice Course

Beautiful course. Only con was a two hour delay due to frost which effected the pace of play. However, I still enjoyed myself.

1st round @ Candlestone GC

The course was decent condition, and the greens were nice. Play was extremely slow. First time to play the course, I was a solo. Ok, they just finished an outing, so the tee times were stacked up. Sadly, no ranger reminding golfers,,,,ready golf! Highlight of the day, a 3 some allowed me to play along on hole #3; which made the day a lot more tolerable. I would play if again to give it another chance on pace of play.
