I had a terrible experience in Penderbrook today. When we (4) finished the fifth hole, it began to rain. We tried to keep playing but could not, because it was pouring and cold rain. We asked raincheck, but were rejected. The manager said they cannot give any rain checks when the weather forecast said it would rain but we came. Never experienced in other courses. Penderbrook's rain check policy is the worst. Felt like we were robbed.

Starter seemed to be a nice guy that has no clue! The starter didn't go by the actual time and scheduled tee times....He told me and my playing partner the other 2 people scheduled to play with us wanted to play alone, which is fine, so he sent them off ahead of us. After waiting for two more twosomes to tee off he said we were next. We said great and we're putting on the practice green, which is right next to the tee. As we walked to our tee we noticed a couple walking in front of us to the senior tees. I went to the starter and asked what was going on? He then said we could go after them! I repeated to him he said we were supposed to tee off next, and reminded him he told us we were next? He looked at me and said "well I told them they could go ahead"! It is was it is, but the round was extremely slow, with no marshals seen until the 17th hole! Poor tee time management was the cause. The only thing that saved the day was the beautiful weather! I would not recommend playing this course if you know how to play and don't like to wait between every shot! Not a good experience this day!

Played on a Saturday morning. Course layout was nice. Greens in good shape, rolling true, the rest of the course was not in great shape. Patchy fairways, shaggy tee boxes, and lots of dead , dry spots. Overall about what you would expect for the money this time of year.

Pace of play was very slow. Starter didn't seem to have much control and no marshall or Ranger to be seen to keep people moving. After the starter told us "it's moving pretty well, probably take you around 3.5 hours", ended up being a 5 and a half hour round. I'd definitely give it another shot just not on a Saturday.

The course is fairly decent, but recent aeration of the greens makes putting a nightmare. Also fresh sod was placed in front of the greens making it very soft and unpleasant to play from. Highlight of the round- a water pipe broke on the 2nd hole releasing a 20ft gyser that flooded the front part of the green... we were unsure what to do but ended up playing through while maintence didn't seemed to concerned about the ordeal. Shouldn't pay more than $30 for the course

This could be a pleasant round of golf if course was maintained better. The fairways were dry and choppy, greens covered with divots.

This could and should be a wonderful course but the upkeep is very poor and there must not be sufficient resources dedicated to improving conditions.

The pro shop looks like it was raided, virtually no products available-shelves were bare!

Perhaps after a long rainy spell it would be a better round, but middle of summer-not so much.

I played here on sunday the 11th of june. THe gentleman at the check in desk was nice enough but seemed pretty busy. Course was in great shape and has improved over the years. But who the hl hired the starters this year? The gentleman in the pro shop pointed to two kids who were both talking on the phone blatantly ignoring golfers who needed assistance. The pace of play was horrible. With 2 starters not one could do a marshall lap and try to speed up pace of play? Instead i see both of them laughing and giggling inside the cart barn. Wish i could give this course a better rating its in great shape.

Being as I live in the golf community, I am able to play this course quite often. Recently I have noticed a major lack in care towards the course conditions. There are huge holes in fairways, sprinklers go off while golfers are playing, and the pins are never all in the same positioning for the day. To add onto that, I've noticed some things with the workers that shock me. One guy rides his maintenance cart erratically, cutting across fairways while golfers are in play. I believe this man is head of maintenance for penderbrook. And for the first time ever, I had a very nasty experience with the man in the pro shop who gave myself and the golfers I was with attitude when asking about rain checks. Overall, if you end up having to pay the full $50 to play here, I would suggest saving your money or spending $10-$20 more on a nicer course.

We played here on a Tuesday, thinking maybe it would not be busy but we were wrong. It was about a four and a half hour round, though so not too bad. The course itself was in pretty good condition, some construction taking place, but nothing that affected a tee box or green. There were two holes that here pretty unforgiving - one was a par 5 that almost U-turned, making it pretty difficult. The other was a par 4 that did a complete left turn, which was also hard. That being said it was our first time playing here, so maybe now that we know that, it won't be so bad next time, and there will definitely be a next time. The only real drawback for this course was the staff. While extremely friendly, I had to go back and ask if there was a starter because I didn't see one and people seemed to be firing at will, teeing off whenever. The guy in the pro shop pointed at the "starter', a young kid who was moving carts and talking on his phone. I never saw him speak with any of the golfers, so I had to go to a foursome that was waiting to tee off and tell them we were actually in front of them, something the starter should have done. Then, on the 17th tee, a cart came driving towards us, which turned out to be the cart girl. Even though our playing partner was mid-swing, she did not stop and kept barreling towards us. I feel that she was never taught, but for own safety as well as golf etiquette, once she realized someone was teeing off she should have pulled over.
