Ranger ruined the round

My foursome was well under pace thru 6 holes when the ranger showed up to tell us we needed to pick it up. He then sat on the 10th green, watched us finish the hole, and followed us to the 11th tee to tell us to pick it up again while the next group was still playing from the middle of the 11th fairway.

The course was excellent and the clubhouse staff and starter were friendly as could be but the ranger absolutely ruined our round. Take the 4 hour pace of play rule with a grain of salt if that guy is riding around

Course was really nice and for the price definitely one of the best in the area. WIll bring bug spray next time there were a few holes that they were very obnoxious especially with the slow pace of play but as for the fairways and greens they were nice.

Charged for not showing up even though we did

Golden hills submitted a charge to my card for the round claiming we did not show up to the round even though we did, and I have a bank statement to prove I payed for the round. Then to top it off we had to wait an additional 30 min after our tee time to start playing because there was no starter or anyone monitoring the pace of play at the first hole and it was that backed up. I will never play at the course again if this is the way they treat their customers.

Golden Hills has always been a well kept course and even with all down pour of rain the past couple days, the course was in excellent condition. The staff is always friendly and approachable. Majority of the Midlands golf courses has lost several of their green, all of the greens here was superb and I couldn’t blame my scores on the greens. Keep up the good work and social distancing was still been practice at the front desk.

Had a last minute foursome wanting to play. Called and said if we got there soon they would start us on the back 9. Fantastic service! For end of January, the course is in great shape. Greens rolled fast. Beautiful weather and a fun course to play.
