Golfnow had them up as open....but closed...

Terrible terrible terrible and worst golf reservation experience i have ever had. Called the course the day before and was told the course was open for play... booked on golfnow and went to the course the next say... see that snow is still on the ground and called the course and was repeatedly told the course is open and they see a full sheet. So i waited an hour and called again and was told that they are closed. What an absolute waste of my time on christmas eve between preperations and gas/tolls to get to this course. Called the pro shop and was mocked by the guy that works there and told me if if im basically stupid and that if theres snow on the ground ti should know they are closed... what terrible customer service and i hope this gets to the proper person regarding my experience with golfnow and saxo woods golf course

LOL. I’m glad they called you stupid. They were truthful and accurate. I’ve never golfed with snow on the ground.

Disappointed.

I booked a tee time one week in advance, when I got to the course went and paid green fee, got my receipt and promptly took it to the starter who informed me that they were running half an hour to 40 minutes behind due to frost delay. My tee time was for 1:06 pm. I informed him that I would be on the putting practice area which is steps away and to please let me know when my turn came up. He assured me that that would be fine. I practiced putting for 30 minutes and then returned to the starter who then informed me that my turn had passed. I was disappointed he had not called me as agreed and was going to pro shop for refund. He then called me back and said he would send me right out with another group, as we were waiting by the 1st tee another group came and said they would be jumping in front of us because the starter had said it was ok. I took my clubs and walked to the pro shop for a refund. I Will Not play this course again, nor recommend to anyone.

One more hazard!

The course was great, but I couldn't stay out the "leaf" hazards! I would definitely play there again (before the leaves fall).

Slow Pace, useless ranger

I could not finish 18 holes within4hour20minutes
On a week day. Ranger did not help too much. I could not finish the 18 holes for my last 3 rounds at Saxon, either waiting for cart or allowing extra groups to cut in. Enough ...,
