Staff

The course was in good shape and the staff in the club house was friendly but the starter....not so much. I’m an avid golfer and have golfed courses all over the state of Ohio. I always drive my cart to my car to get my clubs. Apparently you are not allowed to do that. I didn’t see any signs that said you couldn’t. The starter came over and gave me and my friend a hard time telling us we violated a bunch of rules for the course and was rude and unprofessional. It’s a nice course but beware of the starter.

Guy in the pro shop needs to be less of a d***

Amazing course overall. Played with a buddy from college and loved the course layout, greens were a bit slow but that’s okay. However the guy at the pro shop when I came in to pay for our round was incredibly rude and yelling at golfers as they came in and out of the pro shop. I had placed my bag down outside near the carts and told my buddy to load up while I pay. I had taken one step in the door and this guy yells at me and tells me to “take my bags off the cart immediately”. I was quite confused why he was upset with such an action like dude I am coming to golf not steal your carts. I was already immediately upset with this guy and told him I would walk outside come back in and he can start that conversation again. This guy acted like he had all of the power in the world, like dude you need to relax you work at the pro shop and I am here to have some fun. Other than the guy at the pro shop, would definitely come back and play again.

Slow Pace of Play

My father and I had a tee time for 11:10 am. We showed up at 10:30 to get some putting and chipping in. We were informed that there was a very large golf outing in before our tee time. So we waited until 11:25 to tee off. The group ahead of us was very slow. Also we were paired with a twosome of people we did not know. Overall not a great experience.

Good course

Today was a very good day to golf. Even though it is very hot the pace of play made it very nice. They had all the group split up nicely so there is little to no time having to wait on the Teebox.

Decent course

The course was in decent shape considering we’ve had no rainfall. The pace was great because we went in the afternoon. I still think it’s too much money to play this course.

Staff was friendly! Charge for 18 holes was $31 and considered acceptable. The course was in very good shape with the exception of the tee boxes that I would say are awful. I enjoyed the course and plan to play again first opportunity.

Slow pace

Waited on avg 15 min at every tee box on the front nine, called for a ranger to see if they could have the people in front of us play ready golf, just drove around and came by to say the pace will pick up, 2:45 min for nine is ridiculous, especially you pay $46, tee time was 11:00 and finished at 5:10. Know now not to play on weekends here.l

Cheap round of golf

For $20 including cart for 18 holes you can’t really complain. The people in front of me paid $35 for 18 and that I consider to be a rip off. The pace was quick as we played in 3.5hrs, but the course is in rough shape. Lots of weeds, bunkers not kept up well and bare spots in the rough. However, for $20 I can live with it.

I loved. “the downs!”

The only thing which perturbed me was, course-maintenance not being more sensitive or “aware” of those of us on the tee-box. Pace of play was fantastic. The course was also great. Kudos to the staff, whom welcomed us, as well as Asia in the clubhouse. I hope that I can swing ‘em again there, very soon.

Overall nice course.

Very nice course to play. Only issue was the staff. The Marshall was constantly telling us to pick up pace even though there was no one waiting on us, but we were waiting for the two groups in front of us at every tee. He never said anything to them.

Well cared for course.

The greens are in excellent shape. Turf-wise the course is in great shape. Some of the cart paths are in need of repair, though.

A little on the pricey side

40$ for a round with cart is to much for this course.
