They're running shotgun rounds right now during the week. They​ are that busy but the shotgun format made the pace of play much better than the weekends. Greens we're a little rough in spots but overall a very enjoyable albeit slightly overpriced round.

Yes, slow play does ruin a round.

Marshall was out but only saw him once, the two groups in front of us were all friends, 4 women in the first group and the 4 husbands buffering.

Or were they?

Bruital the men couldn't keep up, good way to ruin a nice Sunday afternoon.

This course has a decent layout but the greens are awful. Very very slow and very hard. Not a good combo. The bunkers have no sand and are literally hardpan. Not worth what they are charging. This should be a $25-$30 course and only worth playing if NOTHING else is available

When I pulled up, I thought 2 greyhound buses had just unloaded! A crowd of golfers around the bag drop and practice putting green, which I've never experienced before. A shotgun start that was certainly not indicated in my booking, when given a tee time of 12:58 pm! ( a little deceptive, don't you think?) When we were sent out to our designated starting hole, there were no directions, just a mass scatter of obvious regulars! The course must buy their "kitty litter" by the truck load or have investments in a nearby quarry.......the bunkers were full of the stuff. Sand would have been nice!

Having said all this, it's a forgiving course and the greens, although slow, were in great shape. I was pleasantly surprised that the pace of play was adequate, considering an A & B group teeing off from each hole. Not an overly picturesque course, which borders a Hwy and RV park. Unknown if everyday is a shotgun start. Can't comment on food or it's service.

Golf course is over priced and uses a shotgun start format during winter months. I was able to pick up the tee time on golfnow for a more reasonable price. Many of the holes look the same from the tee box.

We golf this course several times a week because we stay in the park. My biggest complaint are the fairway 'rock traps' for lack of a better word. If the club isn't going to put the money needed into putting sand and NOT ROCKS into these traps, then sod them over! Had to buy a 'rock club' so I wouldn't wreck my irons in these traps. A shame, because it really is a nice course other than this.

Pace of play is very slow and they book tee time 7minute apart, it's a short course, hole are all very close together also all the fairways we had ball coming at us from 2 different fairways at times, and that's not including the driving range balls on the 18th hole. Not one of my favourite course you can get a really nice course for same price.

If you're looking for a fast friendly straight forward track, here's your spot. For about $50, this is a well kept course, and pace of play, at least on this Saturday morning, was incredible. I played alone, played through about 4 groups, and still finished in about 3 hours. And I was not rushing. Traditional golf, with wide fairways, soft greens, and even a few hazards here and there make Viewpoint a fun round anytime. Especially when you break 80!
