Poor course conditions and drainage pipes laying around every single green

Poor course conditions and drainage pipes laying around every single green. There were drainage pipes and drainage ditches dug around every single green on the course this was not mentioned to me whatsoever. As an avid golfer and someone who takes the sport seriously it was irritating to have multiple shots affected by the poor conditions of the greens and the pipes laying all over the place. I will not be back. I understand making course improvements but they should be relayed to your golfers or reflected in the price

Course Conditions (Greens)

Given the greens still have signs of aerating, the ball would not roll. But they were still charging sub~premium money to play. Should be charging less until the course conditions match the money charged.

Great course conditions, layout, character, price!!

This year has been a fantastic year golfing going into semi retirement and with 88 rounds since March this Medalists is certainly GOLD. Great layout, conditions, character, challenging, and super greens roll true. Scored $43.59 for 2 on TeeOff, what a bargain! Even $29 medalists websites is a deal for this quality.
Only negatives, don’t like GPS with advertising, and a small crowded pro shop downstairs. Yea between great conditions, swamp carries, and plenty of challenges ( 144 slope from tips!!) this is a must play.
The ownerLowell W was on hands on. My buddy moved to Jackson area so I’m sure we will meet up here. Drove almost 2 hours to get here and was not disappointed.
Good turkey dinner just down road
Thanks Lowell for a great well run course experience with wife and buddy on a nice Saturday 11/6/21!

Beautiful course

Beautiful course. Very well maintained. No starter on first hole and no ranger anywhere. A group of 4 jumped in front of us (twosome) on 10 which slowed us down significantly. We weren't in a hurry, but someone to manage things like these on the course would be beneficial to all.

We are very sorry that a rude 4some jumped in front of you. If that ever happens again please hit the ranger button on our GPS unit and we will immediately be out to rectify the situation. We do appreciate that you seemed to take it in stride and still enjoyed your day though. Thank you for your review.

Amazing course, but…

I love this course. The layout, atmosphere, conditions, staff, driving range, carts, all top-notch. There’s really nothing else to be said about how amazing this course is.

BUT.

The leagues have taken over this place. I literally can’t find a day of the week where, as a public player, I have a good time here. And I hate writing a negative review of this wonderful course, but holy smokes I paid full price today to be stuck behind 6-straight foursomes of ladies who literally couldn’t hit a golf ball. I played 9 holes in 3 hours, and found 45 golf balls in the forest while I waited. There has to be some room at this course for people who aren’t in a league.

First of all we appreciate that you love our facility and understand how getting stuck behind leagues can sometimes be frustrating. We do have leagues on Tuesday and Thursday but the other days are open for players just like yourself. Again, thank you for liking our facility and we hope to see you many times more, after the leagues or not.

Great 18

Course was amazing per usual. Manager or whatever guy working was very rude. Claimed we were late for our tee time and it was an error between their system and golf now’s scheduling. We were 10 minutes early just an FYI. No apologies. Great round though!

Beautiful course, seemed crowded with leagues each time I’ve been. Witnessed inappropriate behavior between female staff and members of the mens league on a Tuesday evening, and heard very vulgar things being said at the clubhouse amongst the same group with the staff. Distracting and unprofessional and overshadowed the great round of golf. It was disappointing and substandard for such a beautiful course. Will give it another shot this year, hoping for a better experience.

NancyUP, Please reach out to our owner Lowell Weaver regarding your experience. We have spoken to our entire staff and the entire men's league and haven't been able to verify any misbehaving. If you can help us figure out the culprits they will not be allowed to return to our league, and the staff will be relieved of their duties. We pride ourselves on our atmosphere and will strive to make sure we keep that atmosphere where everyone feels welcome and safe. Thank you.

beautiful course

the course was perfect. well maintained and just enough of a challenge. my one complaint was we were a two-some stuck behind 2 foursomes and a pair of seniors that had been behind us all day cut us off on a hole and jumped in front. not sure what they're rush was because they never got ahead of the same group we had been waiting on. obviously this isn't the courses fault they were great. I will be back.
