I teed off at 12:30 on Sunday and finished at right about 5:00pm. Pace was slower than I'd like due to the 3 groups ahead. Metropolitan is mostly flat. If you hit on a mound, you're looking at just a slight slant. This course is also one of the most boring I've played on. All you see is open grass and golfers. Hardly any nature bits at all to appreciate.

In addition, the golf cart paths are designed in such an interesting maze. Here's the funny part. You're following your ball and driving on the fairway until you realize that you're on a different hole and have to find your way to the proper path. Occasionally, I unconsciously realized that I was on another person's fairway...that's dangerous! This course needs proper dividers that intuitively guide golfers to the next hole as well as keep them on the hole they're playing on.

Lastly, this is such a long course. If you're out of shape or don't have the endurance to make it though all 18 holes, this course isn't for you. I drove a cart and was so winded after the 9th...

...golf is hard :(

Need a Marshall(on duty) to make sure all golfers keep the pace going.

I'll play here again.

Course in pretty decent shape, a couple of tee boxes need work/leveling, greens very good as always. The thing that kills this place is pace of play issues, primarily caused by people playing tee boxes they have no business playing. The black tee markers should be removed altogether, at least on weekends. Five hours plus is the norm for this place and when you start before 9a, that's unacceptable, I can't imagine what it would be like to play here starting later in the day, you may not finish your round the same day you started.

There were no maps or signs on the 10th hole (par 5 I remember). I lost the course after I made a driver shot. On my second shot, I was confused and I hit toward the 11th hole. I hope you can fix this.

Everything except that was perfect.

I absolutely love Metro. It's a course that you can play every week that you won't get sick of. Rounds usually take 4.5 hours. I've never been frustrated by slow play at this course. You always see at least one or two marshals on the course as well, so you know they are keeping up the pace when necessary. Always appreciated.

It's challenging but not too hard/easy. There are long holes and short holes. Some holes are wide open (you can literally hit it anywhere and be ok) and there are some holes that limit where you can go. The greens are always in fantastic shape.

The driving range and short game practice areas are great as well. Friendly staff. Lots of parking.

Only play here if you can budget 6 hours. Get a marshall on this course and keep the pace of play moving. Not sure why it's so slow but the last three times I've played here its been 5.5 hours. Not coming back anytime soon.

We got a round at Metro for $15 at 12:30 on a Thursday. Can't beat that price! Metro is a solid, affordable course that they keep in good shape. It can get busy and windy but this day we played it was sunny, not too hot, and pace of play was good until the last two holes where we caught up with a foursome in front of us. They were looking for their balls on the 17th, which is a par 5 with a water hazard on the approach. Definitely recommend Metro, especially if you can grab the hot deal!
