Decent Course; Needs more marshalls

Beautiful day to play. Course was in decent shape for the winter. Had to quit after hole 10 though due to a rowdy party of 4 ahead of me. They were playing extremely slow on purpose and laughing about it. They would lose clubs and be running across fairways during my turn to retrieve their clubs. It was maddening. Also there were not enough carts for every who had booked and I had to wait for another player to finish their round.

Course was in pretty good shape. Greens were extremely fast if you got above hole. They had pin placements in tough positions. The tee boxes were terrible and very un-level. Pretty easy fix if they would spend a little time and money and fix that. Rest of course was fine and fair.

Bone dry fairways

Bone dry fairways, spongy overwatered greens, tee boxes in disarray and $69 for 18 holes. If you don’t get a deal online I would pass on golfing here.

Poor conditions

Lack of water has made the fairways lack grass, including the tee area. The greens are not in good condition.

Auburn Valley

A classic course that is fair and challenging. Plenty of tee box options. Great views.
My only criticism is that some of the fairways are drying out with sections of hard pan.

Well worth driving one and one half hours, through some winding mountain road.

Well managed Covid-19 sanitation situation around the pro shop area and the carts. Well managed fairways and the greens. Tee boxes are a little bit hard. The best golf carts , equipped with good working GPS.
Well worth of driving one and 1/2 hours to get to the course. A couple of birdies helped the enjoining the round. I will return here before the daylight gets shorter in November. Thanks GolfNow.

Course was in very good shape!

At check in they didn’t have my Teeoff reservation so I had to show them my printout. The tee time was double booked so we were late getting started. Not sure why there was problems with the online reservation.

Issue with GolfNow communication

The course itself was great and the staff was quite helpful. But, there were multiple groups, including mine, that had booked through GolfNow but didn’t show up in the Auburn Valley GC reservation system. So the starter had to plug us in wherever he could. Our 7:30am start time ended up being 8:10am. For us, it was fine, but another twosome that also booked through GolfNow and played with us had to leave early since the later start time caused them to be behind schedule. Hopefully Auburn Valley GC and GolfNow can get things figured out in the future.

Nice Course

Had a 6:40am tee time. Pro Shop sent me off on #10 solo to beat a tournament onto the course. Pace was quick. Course was in very good shape, although a bit wet. Course was being watered through the first nine. Very fun, playable course. Will definitely play here again.

Customer service needs help

We arrived with plenty of time to hit balls and putt before we teed off. The real issue is that they people that work at Auburn Valley were already teed off. We all got an earful from them about how we shouldn’t use GolfNow anymore to book tee times as they will not honor those times going forward and that we were double booked for the 8:40 time slot. How would we know that they shouldn’t be on GolfNow anymore?! The starter kept a close eye on us when we were on the range since he was “doing us a favor” by squeezing us in. Not my favorite thing to be rushed off the practice range when we had plenty of time only to be sandwiched in between 2 groups and had to tee off on number 10! And they raised the green fee significantly as well. For a course that won’t take tee times from GolfNow and they want to charge $69 / round they really need to do quite a bit to get their course to this level. Speaking of level, there was only 2-3 level tee boxes at this course, and one of the guys wanted to buy an extra sleeve of balls and could only get one kind. I couldn’t believe how they had little to no merchandise in the pro shop but had brand new golf carts!! Something is definitely a miss at Auburn, this is a far cry from the great customer service I have received in the past. I will not be making the effort to go back anytime soon.
