This is a 1star muny with country club greens fees

Fool me once shame on me, but this place is literally fleecing people. It’s trash for the price. Also watch out for uncle Rico the rogue player ranger who’s quite fragile emotionally.

SLOW

3 hours on a weekday morning to play 8 holes is a bit ridiculous.

10th tee

I booked an early tee time (6AM) for 18. The reason I booked an early tee time was that I had a meeting to attend in the morning. There was a foursome that slowed down the pace. So, I skipped a hole. Everything was good until I got to the 10th tee. It was booked up. Where did these golfers come from? They should not be placing people on the 10th tee when the early golfers are rounding the ben. I just left as there was no way to play the back nine.

I don't know how you get around this? I guess if I was the owner I wouldn't care either. I'd want as many people on the course at one time as well.

So, in the future, just play nine.

Great Track

Enjoyed playing the course for first time., challenging but fair . Starter wax friendly and helpful. Amenities inside the restaurant were average and wait staff could have better customer service.

Solid course, room for improvement

I hadn’t played Sylvan Glen in many years, and was looking forward to it. Heavy rain the prior day made the course a bit wet, but still very playable. The course is 100 years old this year and is a traditional parkland style layout with small greens. The pace was slow (5 hours) , I expected this at a public course. No rangers, which seems to be the norm everywhere. I liked the course, but the greens were bumpy. Players didn’t fix ball marks or even rake bunkers. There is a full service restaurant on site, but it is kind of odd walking in during your round. Troon golf now manages the city course and I believe they will make improvements. Looking forward to playing again in the not to distant future.

Nice place.

The course was in great shape. A little bit of water issue because of the rains that came through the area but nothing major. Price is pretty steep for a public course $60/round with a cart I feel is a bit much. Staff was really nice. Could use more stuff in the pro shop. Wanted to buy a cigar but they don't have them. Overall though its a nice place to play.

55 for this dump??? LOL

I understand inflation and golf rising in popularity and blah blah blah, but anyone willing to pay $55 for this steaming pile of dookie is a lost and desperate soul.
