AJ Jolly very nice.. Don’t use golf now

AJ Jolly was great. Golfnow was a ripoff. Had a deal for $34 and then charged me $50 per head. Charged me $17 dollars of “fees”. Turns out the course has a $30 senior rate Monday-Friday. Of course, you cannot get anybody at golfnow to help you. Course worked it out,
They were great! Highly recommend AJ Jolly,

Booked with cart and not available

We booked a tee time with a cart, yet when we arrived they said they weren’t available. Was told that they/Golfnow tried calling me but that was a lie. Won’t have drove 50 minutes if we knew this.

Wow worth the drive

What a great golf course and it was not expensive at all. Our front nine the pace of play was very slow 2 hours and 45 min but the back nine we played it in less than 1 hour and 45 min.

That I sent the only complaint but st the end of the day we have no complaints as the overall day was very nice. Food options were basic but you do not need more.

Great staff and great course

Disappointed with the Deception

I won a round of golf for two at a charity auction to benefit breast cancer research and survivors. When we checked in I was advised that the certificate I won in the auction didn't include a cart....really? What kind of charitable donation is that? I paid the $18 for the cart and was ready to play. The attendant then asked who else was golfing with me because they needed to pay $18 also. WOW! $36 for cart fees for a round for two that the course "donated" for a charitable event? It seems like they are more concerned with making money than really donating to charity. What a joke. The course was ok but the fairways are full of divots that no one fixed.

We are very sorry to hear about your experience. We are so happy to help charities and to give 2 rounds of Golf ($64 value) to every donation request. The cart is an option for the players when they come to the course and we are very reasonably priced at $18 per person for the option to ride. Give us your tee time information and we can offer you an 18 hole golf voucher for your next visit. We certainly hope the benefit was a success for you as well.

This course is GREEN!

I have been a fan of this course all my life. However, every time I want to golf with someone, they want to find the cheapest option (save 10 bucks to play a worse course). Nothing worse than hitting out of hardpan in the fairway or the rough being god-awful. NOT HERE!! Over the years they have fixed any drainage areas and the greens were completely redone a couple of years ago. They are the perfect size, not too small or too big. The best part of this course by a long shot is that it is GREEN! Who wants to play out of a weeded fairway or worse have to hit out of hard pan all day, not this guy. AJ Jolly is in immaculate shape and you will be hard pressed to find a better kept course for under $50 anywhere in the vicinity! Seriously, this course is Sweet!! Is it hard, not extremely, the greens are pretty flat for the most part and a lot of holes you can hit an errant drive and still have a shot at the green, However, do not mistake this comment for me saying that there is no challenge. I am just saying that you don't have to keep the driver in the bag all day (who wants to do that. I assure you that to score high you will still have to manage the course or you can get into trouble. Not too much sand and some water but not a ton to avoid helps the score a little. It is certainly a peaceful round in nature, especially the back nine. Pace of play can be slow as it is public and will bring out amateurs and hackers but not always. I love to play on Sat or Sun evening and I get the course to myself for the most part most times. I had not played here for a few years and this year I am addicted to it. I can not stress how great it is to hit out of GRASS even if I am deep in the rough. You will love this course all year long I assure you. See you there (I am going to play today)!

This course is in great shape even this late in summer! Challenging & beautifully maintained. Crew also reunited my sister with her missing PW, huge relief! We'll return, no doubt. Love seeing the water birds around.
