Too slow!

My 3-some was slow because he had a beginner golfer with us…but starting on the 4th hole we were waiting on practically every shot. On many occasions there 3 groups playing the same hole at once. There was a foursome 3 or 4 groups ahead of us that was holding up the whole course. The Marshall came around twice on the back nine and spoke to them…but nothing changed. We were the last group in front of a captain’s choice tournament, and they ended up having to wait on us almost every shot, but we couldn’t go anywhere. I felt so bad! It got so bad we just quit after the 14th hole and didn’t play the last 4 holes. Please try to enforce pace of play a little better!

Great course, over watered greens with 2 many divots

A great course design and layout. If you play from the whites usually, go to the blues. Greens were very green and good speed but way over watered and full of divots. If you land the green in two, expect a 2 inch crater…like putting on a slice of Swiss cheese….fix your divots guys! Even in spite of the greens, I give this a thumbs up to play.

Average Course

Booked a tee time through Golf Now app. Hit driver 3 times on front nine. Fairways and rough were in good shape. Greens were average. A number of holes force you to layup off the tee versus hitting driver. Water/Hazards ahead aren’t marked on the scorecard or tee box. Water cooler on the back nine was empty on a 92 degree day. They don’t allow any outside drinks/snacks and you have to go get the cart cooler from the snack bar, which makes sure you are spending money in their shop to stay hydrated. We paid $55 a piece for our round today and won’t be coming back.

Greens need some love. Extremely slow. For the price point of this course I would have expected the greens to be hard and fast. The rest of the course seems to be in great shape.

Slow play

My son and I played on the afternoon of July 24th. We decided to leave the course after the 13th hole due to slow play. As we were driving back to the club house we encountered a 5 some on the 17th hole and people that should have picked up after their 5th shot on the par 3 fairway. The older couple in front of us were playing 2 balls each due to the slow play. Old Sycamore needs a better ranger and live up to the rules on the score card for slow play. After complaining about the slow play pro shop manager was nice to give us 50% off our Roy d as a credit for the round. Also the greens we in need of repair. Overall I would recommend either playing when there is not a full tee sheet or finding another course.

Great local course

Hidden gem. The course is in great shape and seems to be run extremely well. Pace of play can be a bit slow but if that doesn’t bother you it definitely worth a visit.
