The course is i. Great condition , but the pace of play was way to slow and we did not see a marshal trying to speed it up. Greens are in great shape and so are the fairways.

fromdhip56,

Thank you for your review of Shula's Golf Club. We apologize for that slow pace you encountered on 3/18. We were missing our Ranger that day. We have recently hired more part time rangers to alleviate this problem when a ranger does not show up. We are finding that the pace of play ion Saturday mornings is anywhere from 4 to 4 hrs 15 mins with the pace slowing down as the day progresses. We will make sure to properly train our new staff on pace of play. We are glad that you found the greens and fairways in great shape. We hope to see you again very soon.

Sincerely,

Shula's Golf Club

This course is good value for the money. The fairways are very average but greens are excellent. The front nine is ok but wait for back nine as there are some great holes. A fun course to play.

We have played here several times and always enjoyed it. This time most of the fairways needed a little work - the grass was sparse and not very "cushy", but the greens were very good. I think a little rain will restore the fairways .

Back nine much tougher than the front nine!

Awesome course, greens were beautiful and pretty fast. We had the first tee time at 7 so the pace was lightning fast, but it seemed like everyone behind us was keeping the pace up too. Great course, we would play it everyday and be HAPPY
