Where is the marshal

Paid to play 18 today. Got to 1, there was a team of 6 all teeing up with a solo behind them (who just came to 1 to make up 1-3 for slow play earlier). No Marshall even at 1 and nothing on course. By the time I struggled 2.5 hrs as a solo for 9, I hoped to speed up but once again pulled up on the 6 group waiting for the 4 in front of them who were just teeing off.

I left before the 6 team teed off.

Last time I played here, it took 5.75 hrs to play 18 (with a Marshall .

This is a decent course but it desperately needs better management.

For the most part the coarse was in good condition, the tee boxes were in terrible shape!!!
My group was the the 1st group in the morning, after we made the turn, there was a group in front of us??? A husband, wife, and 2 children, the children were maybe 5 & 7, were running around and picking up balls!!!

3 hrs spent under a bush

Let’s talk about playability. When a tree becomes a bush over the course of 30 years, it needs to come out. Tee box chutes are narrow. Tees are crowned. Weeds on greens (including a dandelion on #7). Many irrigation and drainage repairs that have been open for several weeks, untouched. Dollar spot galore on fairways and crabgrass on tees. But look, it’s public golf so I get some of that. But DO NOT set pins on slopes and crowns on greens on a weekend with 120 on the tee sheet. Keep it moving! … I am a former golf course superintendent—give your super some money for labor, new equipment, capital budget and fungicides/herbicides. Oh, and put in a line item for a chainsaw!

Fun course and challenging greens, there was no ranger or starter so the pace of play was a little wonky.

Goat Farm

Course in poor conditions players in worse 2:45 for the first 9 holes no idea what a full 18 would take, terribly run. No pacing of hole 1 tee times and no ranger to control pace. Worst golf experience of the year.

Over five hours for 18

I thought it was bad being stuck behind a slow foursome, with a group pushing so close behind me I had to watch my back for golf balls hitting me. It got worse when some course regulars decide they were going to cut in front of me on the fourth hole. When I told the staff about the situation, it was obvious they were friends. The staff I just tried to lie to me and tell me they were in front of me the whole time, but her mistake in her lie was telling me they had a 2:20 tee-time when my tee-time was 3 o’clock. I will not be returning.

Slow pace

I like the course because it has good value for the price of you are ok with a slow pace. It is always over booked it seems and you are waiting at every hole to tee off. That is really the only downside. Nice course, kept up, challenging greens as they are all hilly with curves.

Fun to play

Course management really paid attention to customers feedback. I pointed out the opportunity to improve tee box quality. They did it. Fairway is also much better. This course is a little bit of challenge but it is fun to play. I will definitely invite friends to play there.

Very short, but fun.

I’d highly recommend this course to any new players or anyone who doesn’t hit it too long. However if you hit it long and straight, this won’t be much of a challenge.
Pace of play was great, staff was great. Greens were in good condition albeit very small.
I didn’t care for the layout of the holes. Lots of tight fairways with little to no room for error on either side. They didn’t overlap per se, but lots of blind shots with potentially dangerous crossing. Tee shots that slice or hook are likely headed toward another group.
I did see a deer tho, so that was pretty cool.

Only one issue, no forward senior tees. Unless your swing speed is 90 mph or faster you're unfortunately have to play from the ladies tees.
