Airline lost my clubs, so I had to rent at the proshop.<br/> The staff (Beau specifically) were great! They helped fit me for shoes, etc. But for some reason things turned less pleasant when I mentioned the clubs they provided really weren't up to standards.<br/> Specifically, the grips were old and slick, the set provided had 11 clubs, and the bag had holes in it, (and I actually lost some items before I realized it..) To make matters worse, the weather was threatening rain, and no umbrella or bag cover was provided. When I asked about an umbrella, I was informed I could buy one.<br/> I spent $400 on replacement gear, but had to play with sticks I wouldn't give a child, let alone a single digit HDCP player. Easy course, (shot an 81, even with the weather and the horrid clubs). Also, not sure who the older 'pro' was, but when someone spends $400 in your shop, you might want to be a little nicer. If I ever play this course again, they won't get a dime more than green-fees.

Sherrill Park #1 has just recently reopened after 9 months or so of renovation. A lot of the renovation has been with cart paths and irrigation. The over-all layout of the course hasn't changed much at all. A couple of the greens have been reshaped and enlarged some. I really like the changes made to Par 4 #3. They have added a few bunkers and moved some, and eliminated a couple. The greens were in wonderful condition, as well as the fair-ways. The tee boxes are great; big, level, and green. It will feel like they have removed a bunch of trees, but it is really that they have cleaned up the existing ones. And, the little fake creek in the landing area of #18 has been removed and replaced with some plush fairway turf. I think you will like it. I did.

By far the most unsafe place there is to play! The staff is beyond rude & i have wittnessed fights on the golf course that they feel is not their problem so they dont get involved. They allow people back who have tried to start fights and hit woman and since they claim they werent there they let people continue to play. Its very unsafe and even family's with kids ive wittnessed leave becuase of the rude and inappropriate behavior there.

This is possibly the worst golf course I have ever played in my life. The greens are Horrifying. They might as well put the pins in the fairways because they roll better than the greens. I counted the amount of bounces my ball bounced on the greens and I lost track of them at 243 after 9 holes. If you line up your out you might as well close your eyes because you can't expect it to go in. The course is way way way overpriced. The course is over priced by about 40 dollars. It should be for free cause the course is so bad!!!!!!

I played here back in June and the greens on course one had obviously suffered over the winter. I went back yesterday expecting better but they were even worse. I can understand punched and sanded, but they were punched and sanded and in dire need of mowing due to the weeds on many of the greens. Some of the blades of grass on these weeds were a third of an inch or more ABOVE the surface of the green, which is pretty inexcusable.

For the first 14-15 holes the greens were very shaggy or long you might say and there were spots all over each green were the dirt or sand was visible. it was impossible to line up a put because your ball was going to bounce on the way to the cup. On one hole we actually saw a sand splash when a players ball hit the green. I don't know what has caused the greens to go into such poor condition. It may be a disease in the grass or bad seeding but it is not worth your money.

The staff WAS friendly and kind. The water coolers were filled with cold water, (Thank God)and the carts were in good shape. I wont come back because of the greens but this shouldn't reflect on the staff.

This was my first time playing this course because it was recommended by a friend, and it got very good reviews. After playing it unfortunately i would not recommend it to anybody and would probably not come back. The layout was nice but the greens were terrible. The greens are very slow and many burned spots and not suitable for putting.

Greens on course #1 are suffering greatly Probably why my green fee with cart was only $10. It does look like the crew is working diligently to fix the greens. All in all, the poor greens didn't effect my score that much. Fairways and tee boxes were just fine.

Greens in terrible and I mean terrible shape! I've played several other courses in the area that were exposed to the same winter and they are all fine. Not sure what happened here but I played a tournament in Ft.Worth recently that had what I thought were the worse greens I'd ever seen until I saw these which are just as bad! Seems like a couple of greens keepers may have been caught by surprise or just not paying attention. There's a couple other courses around here that offer better GolfNow deals than this and are in better shape by far. Just sayin.
