Overpriced but fun

The Colony course is a great distance for the intermediate player or beginners. The condition of many of the fairways and rough is not indicative of the rising costs to play there - the greens are well kept. It is not a good value.

Brutal course

This course could be a gem, but instead it is one of the worst maintained courses I’ve ever played. Weeds every where, tee boxes have patches of grass that need to be cut. Just a terribly maintained course.

Course conditions

Enjoy the layout but the course is in terrible shape. It looks as though they have given up on taking care of it. Too bad. Waste of money. Won’t play there again until there is professional management installed.

Buy on GolfNow was misleading

We played late 12:00 and so when we got there we had to pay extra for a cart. I won't go back there. When i book under one of the other cheaper golf websites it includes the cart. The couse need so really good clean up and maintances. Lost 8 balls today in some of the ruff, because it was maintained.

Don’t play this course

It not worth playing at this course. The tee box are not level and they are mainly dirt, the fair way are not kept up and are all brown. The bunkers are like cement.

Bad course

I booked a hot deal, I get there and the kid at the counter tells me he isn't honoring my booked hot deal and I have to get my refund through golf now. He tells me he can give me a discount and just charge me $15 per person ($60). I asked for the manager, he said "the manager isn't here today". I threatened him to give him the worst rating of all time, so he let me play. I'll never go back though, even for $12

Hidden Costs

I have booked many golf outings with Golf now. this was the first time that golf carts was not included in the fees. When we arrived at the golf course, the attendant told us that we have to pay $15 per person in addition to golfnows fees, not per cart. I thought this is some kind of scam. This should be disclosed at the time of booking not when we arrived at the course. The fairways were not kept up, no yardage marker on the tee boxes or the fairways. bold patches, gofer mounds, open sewer, etc

Golf now deals

I purchased the save $3 per player if you play 4 players and 1 of my guys got sick this morning.
Instead of charging me the $3 extra per player that showed up since we didn’t have 4, they took our money didn’t say anything to us, then charged my card $33.
That’s messed up!! My firiends and I would of paid the extra $3 if they said something to us.
We also told them he might not show, he said he would be late if he did. They still didn’t say “well the car you better pay the normal rate or your card will be charged”.
So I’ll never use golf now again, or go to this course.

HOT DEAL not so Hot

So I booked the HOT DEAL for this past Sunday when my Dad was in town. We have played this course a lot over the past 15 years but had not over the past couple of years. The HOT DEAL did not include cart rental and walking with my 75 year old father is not an option. Cart rental was $15 a person. Add the HOT DEAL price with the convienance charge and the cart rental brings the total to saving $3 per person from the other non-HOT DEAL price that includes a cart. Do not consider $3 a HOT DEAL at all.
