Shooting range

Never heard so many shouts of four. Very very tight course. Odd lengths. And some holes just done make sense.

Run of the mill course

NOTE: if you use 18 Birdies app, the greens were flipped a few years ago but the app has not been updated to reflect that...
The fairways are way too narrow... they should add 3' on both sides.
The greens are tricky as they are mixed grass and some have way too much slope on them.
I'd definitely play again as it was fairly easy to get out, price wasn't too bad but be prepared to spend 4.5 - 5 hrs on your round.

Slow course…zero oversight.

We arrived at knoll east at 12:00pm for a 12:34 tee time. Upon checking in we were told that they didn’t have a name for our reservation but saw two golfers booked. We were paired up with our other half of our foursome about 8 minutes before tee time.

The group in front of us was as slow as a snail. 18 holes of golf took us just about 6 hours. The “ranger” passed us several times and did absolutely NOTHING to speed them up at all ever. The management of this club really needs to better evaluate how they train and/or decide to keep their staff.

In addition do not think you will find any water around the course with the exception of the third tee box. The pro shop has zero beverages for sale and zero snacks.

All in all this was a totally overpriced and underwhelming experience.

Average Course Worth the Money

Decent course, very wide open. Staff and amenities were okay at best. No drinks other that water coolers available. Worth the time and money though.

Waste of money and your time

Literally the worst golf experience I ever had in my life (I’ve been playing golf for more than 13years). Mean and lazy staffs, bad customer service, no course management, and many more . If you are planning on coming here to play, please read all the other reviews, and bring your HELMET! Last, staffs does NOT wear their face masks.

Great conditions in November

For November, this course was in great condition. Most of the leaves were cleared so not a lot of balls lost under leaves. Staff was friendly and got us out early. Overall very happy and will look to play again.
(only issue was my 18 Birdies app was totally wrong, I'll blame 18 Birdies for that)

Great public course

Very relaxed staff. Good carts. Greens and tee boxes in good shape. Most of the fairways on the back nine were roughs needing more maintenance. Most all fairways in good condition. Grill at the turn provides great hot dogs and burgers. A stop worthy of a sit down break. autumn leaves cleared off fairways.

Course is usually in great shape, but not today!!! Leaves, leaves,leaves! Everywhere, we spent most of the round looking for our balls because of the leaves. Then to top it off,several greens were covered with leaves, wishing we had a leaf blower.
Horrible.

Poor start

Had a 10:30 tee time and didn’t get out until after 11... when we arrived it looked like there was an outing going on ... at least 5-6 foursomes waiting to tee off... this caused major delays ... 4 hours through 13 holes I had to leave.. the reasoning was darkness in the morning ???????!
