Course has drainage issues and slow play

This is the second time we have played here, and waited for a dry spell as it rained last time. The course was still sloshy in many areas, including fairways and over half of the bunkers. We played south then west, south pace of play was good, west was very, very slow - having to wait every single hole for 5-15 minutes. The course is nice, but needs some TLC. The staff is friendly, and I got a reduced rate via Golf Now - and the weather was wonderful! Will go back and try again, as there was some sign that they were working to improve the drainage issues that were on most holes. The cool thing is - you will likely see white squirrels.

Poor upper management & very poor underage staff who are not polite or understanding of hospitality & service to provide golfers

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. Course is poorly maintained, I WOULD NEVER BE A MEMBER TO A COURSE THIS POORLY MAINTAINED with a boring course layout not well maintained at all with ignorant management & ignorant staff.

STAFF & MANAGEMENT FOLLOW NO RULES REGARDING COVID19 OR SOCIAL DISTANCING.

I'm not sure who is more unprofessional the Rangers & upper management or the multiple 12 year olds working on the course acting like children cursing & swearing & not polite or professional one bit on any golf course level.

I have lived in the area for years & every time I give ETOWAH A CHANCE, THE EXPERIENCE IS ALWAYS TERRIBLE ON MULTIPLE LEVELS.

POOR COURSE MAINTAINED
VERY POOR UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF WITH JUST AS POOR UPPER MANAGEMENT.

Great day on the golf course!

While I had played the course a couple of times, my out of town friends had not. It was an extremely hot day, but all I heard from my friends was how beautiful the course is, how kind and professional the staff is, so glad we chose to play, even in the heat. I booked on Golf Now. Overall, great experience!

Best I've played this year

Have played about 12 courses in western N.C., not played Maggie Valley or Grove Park yet, but these were the best fairways I've come across. A very hard-working crew keeps these 3 courses near perfect ! Great practice greens, driving range, fine lounge/dinner spot, other players cordial and helpful. Only bad thing I've found are the rooms - less than desirable and over-priced for what they are, but the golf is just fine, thank you !
