Better than I expected

Haven't played it in years.... Better than I remembered.... Seems to have improved. Challenging but quite fair. Will be back.

Great day golfing

The course was well groomed and the staff was very friendly. The greens were fast. Seemed to have a lot of scuff marks, but the ball rolled well, so no worries. Just a weird thing though, we tee’d off at 9am. 3 or 4 holes during our round had the sprinklers on in the middle of the fairway. Not sure why they would be running them in the middle of a busy Friday morning.

The one complaint I would have is the practice area. The range balls are horrible. I got a small bucket from the machine prior to my round. 3 of the balls were severely cut. None of the practical balls match and they’re in generally horrible shape. They also have a short game practice area, which is cool, but it was peppered with balls laying all over. To use it effectively, I would have had to pick up 50 or 60 balls laying all over. It would have been nice to just have a shag bag or something laying there to use.

Overall, a good experience. The food afterwards was great!

I took advantage of the Hot Deal and paid ahead for two players. Unfortunately, my partner had to back out at the last minute. I think that the no refund policy. should be reviewed. The rules said that they could pair me up with other golfers at their will but the volume of players did not warrant doing that this time and I played alone. In cases like this it would be fair if they could refund some of the cost..I was willing to golf with someone else but no one was there to do it. Also the gift card(s) I tried to use the system could not identify which negated their value.
