6 hour round of golf

We got to the course 30 minutes early and were told we would be teeing off 10-15 minutes later than our tee time. 40 minutes after our tee time we finally got to tee off. Apparently, there was a small tournament scheduled that was running late.

We then spent 10 minutes after every hole waiting to play the next hole. After almost 6 hours, we ended our round on the 15th hole and drove back to the club house to leave.

great course, needs some love

Great course but showing its age. Like a lot of golf facilities these days, reduced play means reduced revenue. Hope they are able to fix her up!

Auburn Valley

I believe they have had a rough time recovering from the winter storms but it looks like they are gaining on it. They should be all caught up in a couple more weeks.

U S open coming to Auburn Valley

Played today from the blue tees. Missed 5 fairways by 3-5 yards into the very long wet rough. Lost 3 balls just off the fairway as there is copious amounts of cut grass clumped throughout the course and the wet 4 inch rough. Miss a fairway wedge it out if you find it.
I’ve played Auburn Valley over the years and haven’t seen this before. Couple that with the normally firm sloping green complexes and a mid handicapper like me will feel like he should take 2 weeks off then quit.

Course in great shape

The course over all in great shape, some spots a bit too soggy! The lawn mowers were still out well past 0900, which was distracting. Pace of play after 5th holes was really slow. On the back had to skip a hole, just to get around a group talking 20+ mins. per hole. Is there no Marshall?

Fast greens and beautiful layout

Played with 3 buddies, had a great time. Greens are super-fast, very tricky. Stay below the pin! Lots of elevation change and slope-y lies. Grass driving range--nice! Only complaint is a fair number of wet, marshy patches. Very scenic course. Saw a family of bobcats on #13! Got a special--for $29 this was an awesome value.

Beautiful course but really slow play

The course itself is really good, lots of different yardage’s, elevation changes, and beautiful scenery. A few holes have greens that are either diseased or someone spilled fertilizer on them.

The golf staff was really friendly.

Unfortunately we must have caught the tail end of a tournament. We played the first 6 holes in about 1 hour and the final 12 in almost 5 hours. Slowest golfers I’ve ever seen. Like the old saying goes, “ it’s ok to be a bad golfer, just don’t play slow”.

We will definitely come back but will call first to make sure there isn't a tourney that day.

A+++ service

Tried to get us out early, but a member group started late. Common sense says to get the groups out early if possible to allow walkons later in the day.

Great service!!!

Maintenance

Fairway grass not cut, 1st cut was at least 5inches and lots of dead grass from previous cutting. Impossible to find golf ball on 7 different holes. A waste of time and money.
