Great local course

Considerable effort has been made by the groundskeeper and staff to keep the course in top condition. Bad weather this year has made it particularly challenging. All in all, though, it's a very nice, 9/18 hole course, meeting the needs of the average golfer. Amenities are a bit light, limited to soft drinks and snacks. With the closure of the Forrest Creason Course at the University, this is the only local alternative to the upscale, more costly Stone Ridge Golf Course.

never been treated so badly

Walk into the office area at one forty five. My tee time was for two. About ten minutes later a person who works the check-in shows up. With a very angry attitude he says what do you want. I say I have a two tee time for my dad and me. He says not on my course. you don't have sleeves. I SAY THAT I HAVE BEEN HERE NUMEROUS TIMES AND ITS NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM BEFORE. I ask him if we can work something out it is 90 degrees outside. H E SAYS NO WORKING IT OUT. I say ok I just spent 28 bucks and drove 35 miles to be treated like this. So I let him know I will never play there again. he just scoffs in delight.So after leaving I am wondering how a public golf course with not many patrons survives when the ones who do come get terrible treatment. NOT GOOD BUSSINESS PRACTICES. Unhappy in napoleon.

Fun course to play

The course has always been a favorite of mine. It is only 9 holes but it presents all kind of challenges. The first 3 hole are 2 par 4’s and a par 5.you have to be able to be a good striker of the golf ball. All 3 are legitimate as far as length. The there are 3 par 4’s that are very short but you have to be knowledgeable as far as your club selection off the tee. Then there is one par 3 if average length but you have to carry your tee shot over a quarry. The final hole is just an average par 4 that is usually parable the leaves you wanting to come back again. Ithe greens are some of the best I have ever played on. They hold and the ball rolls smooth. If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend this course . It will be a fun experience.

Poor

We never even teed off the guy in charge was very rude because my friend was a few minutes lat for tee time. We were perfectly ok with going to back of line and letting those ready to tee off to go first. He wouldnt let that happen and we never got to play we eneded up just leaving and losing money never got a refund do anyone go here its the worst place i have gone .

I do not recommend

Tom Garcia, the golf shop pro, was extremely rude and pushy. He treats anyone who is a non member like a child and with zero respect. The course was in terrible shape. Cart trails and fairways were also in very poor condition. I would NOT recommend this course to anyone!

Club Pro Tom Garcia is Terrible

Our group had almost the exact same experience as Corey Canaday. The club pro yelled at us like we were children bc we are non members. I've never been treated this terribly at any golf course in my life. One of us dropped our cell phone back on the 3rd hole and when we went back to retrieve it Tom screamed at us.(No other golfers in sight) Instead of explaining a safe route to the 3rd tee box, Tom instead yelled at us and told us to "get out of here". I tried to speak with him in his office and he again belittled me. I told him I would be writing a review and he said he did not care. Funny, bc I wrote a review on their Facebook page and 10 mins later they took their Facebook page down. I will also say, they refuse to serve hot food to non members and you will see flooded bunkers and other poor conditions here.

No go

This course is very poor and the "country club" title is very deceiving. This course layout is very boring and the course is not in very good shape. The manager on duty is always in a terrible mood and not very welcoming. Customer service is very sub par. Even with a hot deal I would stray away and play Forrest Creason for a cheap round or Stone Ridge for an all out experience.

The course setup

They say it's an 18-hole course when really it's just 9 holes that you play twice from a slightly different tee box the second time around.
