R. O. I. Return on investment

Over crowded waiting on every hole. Due to small tee time windows. You pay to play 18 holes with a cart and your asked to return the cart after fifteen holes. So the help go home. Poorly managed! Not to mention no refreshments on the course. Distance is Poorly marked. Way overpriced, no value here.

Excellent layout, well maintained course

Everything is good except slow play, need ranger's supervision to avoid waiting 5 minutes in every hole.

Awful

How can they close today's course without informing Golfnow. We got there and found out that the course was closed due to rain last night. Never got an email from Golfnow.

Fell in love with this course all over again. The work done since I played a few years ago was fantastic and created beautiful views. Reminded me of a links style course. Just wish it was easier for non county resident card holders to get tee times or I'd probably be there much more often.

First timer

Some tee boxes need work, but overall excellent...for a public golf course. I also happened to play with gentlemen...which is not a given!

Great course

Boy this course has changed a lot since I played it 20 years ago. Great layout! Some long holes and lots of shorter holes but you need good shot placement. Greens were in great shape! Highly recommended!

Another bad experience at Galloping Hills golf academy course

The golf academy course is not well maintained. And some people playing there are rude. One professional working there are extremely rude and aggressive. I would not recommend.

Great course. Both the 18 hole and 9 hole course

Personally like the 9 hole course better. More fun and still challenging. Overall great course. Some fairways and paths need a little work. Greens kept in condition. Very tough on some holes. However course gets soaked easily has a tad bit of a marsh problem. In a great location. From time to time gets packed. Tee boxes need some work too.
