Course with a nice layout.

The course could use a marshall. Even with 15 minute tee times, the pace of play was slow because people hitting 2 tee shots and thinking they can hit farther than they can. Saw people driving on the par 3 fairways and right next to the greens. Appears to be no golf etiquette on the course. On the back nine you have to deal with people on the walking paths and then walking across the fairways. Cart girl was just driving around without paying attention to golfers, almost hit her when she drove across path directly in front of us.

New Year’s Eve

Great course. Beautiful views. The Resort course is in great shape. Unfortunately, there were way too many people playing. Three groups stacked up at each hole, so after #10 we jumped ahead (with 2 holes between us and the crowd behind) and played 16, 17 and 18 with clear sailing.

Poor Customer Service

I had a problem when I was playing this course. Someone named Jack from the starter was incredibly rude to me.

He was rude to me in many ways. He told me the group ahead had a 1:15 pm tee time. I went up to the first hole and asked the group ahead of me what their tee time was. They said 1:45 pm. I was a 1:30 pm tee time.

Jack also told me he was doing us a favor by letting us out ten minutes early. He insisted boldly that he was doing us a favor on a few more occasions.

Due to COVID-19, I chose not to play with strangers. It is best to keep things inside the family.

Anywho, the group ahead of us let us pass.

We were playing golf, but around the 12th hole, we received a visit from Jack.

He said that we weren't supposed to go ahead. He yelled at us and did not believe our legitimate explanations.

He proceeded to say that we did the same thing last week. We never played Taqhuitz in a good while.

Jack then said, "Well, you're brother was here."

What kind of racist remark is that? A really bad one.

I will never play here again.

Aborted round

We cancelled after they wouldn’t allow a “rider”. My son’s girlfriend was visiting for Christmas and we couldn’t leave her alone
