Poor quality, poor service, poor experience

Poor quality, poor service, poor experience with I don’t know I was very disappointed with my experience at the Scotts Hill golf club. The facility is unimpressive, to say the least. There were no snacks, dirty restrooms, and unkempt greens. Well, the greens were uncapped unimpressive and mediocre at best. Having said that, we were able to secure a teatime on one of the most beautiful days of the year. And the spectacular day alone would have in and of itself overshadowed the subpar quality of the course. Unfortunately, the service, was beyond unacceptable. There was a lack of professionalism, a dismissive attitude, and an overall sentiment that we were not welcome at the course. Having said that, I would warn any visitors from considering this golf course. 50 bucks for 9 holes with service was a disgrace. The person working needs to be taught that customer service is ideal to satisfy customers
