Good job

This year has been terrible for all courses so I take that into consideration. The fairways were excellent, the greens were great besides the may a holes who don’t bother the repair pitch marks! If you are lucky enough to finally hit a green in the air it is proper etiquette to repair the the area that your ball landed. It is not fn rocket science!

Golden Hawk

This is a decent course. Some of the greens and fairways are patchy. The cart paths are really rough full of pot holes and water. This could be a much nicer course if they did some improvements.

Pace of play

Pace of play was awful. Waiting on every shot and every hole. Tee times just scheduled too close. Has awesome potential. Wouldnt recommend golfing here until tee times are spread out.

Sloooooow play

Seems like the course are getting greedy post COVID.
Stacking 4 foursomes at the tee block at the same tee time this course is no exception.
5 hour round not a pleasant experience.
Greens were not in great shape.
