First Time Playing
Windy weather
Walked

Cold wet windy - GolfNow Rip Off

Booked 2 tee times from GolfNow and paid $59 plus tax/fee walking. Hooked up with 2 others: 1 local and other who also booked using GolfNow but he paid only $35 with cart. How does that happen when we both booked them at similar time?

We played Mercer Oaks East (West course was closed). Great layout but the fairways, bunkers and tee boxes were totally wet (rained previous day). Greens were in good condition. Fairway was full of goose droppings. Strong wind made it very challenging to play. Otherwise, course layout is great. Hopefully will get to play the West course this year.

Nice course

I played on the East course before. It is a very nice link course. Many sand traps come in play on most of the holes.
Unfortunately, the course was full of bird crap all over including on the greens!
The course looked like it has not been taken care a while. Otherwise, it is a nice course and I would love to play there again without the bird crap!

Ball Washera

The course was great as always, the only complaint I have was that some of the ball washers were completely dry and didn't have any water in them.

No wind on the East Course

First time I’ve ever played the East and there was no wind at all. Everything about this facility is 5 star!

12 min tee times. Pace was 4:10.
Conditions were outstanding.
Starter was pleasant and helpful.
Played as 4 single golfers, great guys on a great day of golf at Mercer Oaks!

Course has been in better shape

Probably just because the season is winding down, but some of the fairways are chunked up from heavy play after all the rain we had. Overall good round aside from the pace.

Nice course , rude golfer behind us

Played as a single. Grouped with three great guys. All good golfers. Played from the white tees. Holes all unique. Many strategically placed bunkers. Tee boxes and fairways in very good shape. Greens decent. Had slow group in front that we waited on almost every hole. Had group in back hit up on one green on front nine as we walked off. One women in that group drove up in front of me as I was teeing off on another hole. If not for one of my group telling me to stop, I would have likely swung and may have hit her. Later on I think hole 14, a short par 4, she drives up to another of our group while teeing off to tell us to speed up. The group in front had just walked off and all in group can hit 260plus. She wouldn’t stop complaining. She could have seen at least 3 of us hit fringe of green if she wasn’t clueless. Later on 17, she again hit up on us. Very frustrating. A person like this should not be out there. Funny thing, we still played in 4 hours.
