Staff was unorganized and rude
I was early for my tee time and the starter told me to go ahead about forty minutes early. As I approached the 12th tee, I was accosted by a course ranger. He was rude to me and accused me of playing without a starter’s permission. There was absolutely no one on the course and I was enjoying my round until I was abruptly interrupted. To say the least, I will not be back. The Pro Shop seemed indifferent to the ranger’s issue with me. I was charged $95 for the round and was treated like a second class citizen. I still can’t believe the way I was treated.
The facility is great
Right when you pulled up the staff immediately put your clubs on a cart and we’re very friendly overall. The practice facility is great with two putting greens a chipping green with bunker and a full driving range with free balls. The courses were in great shape for this time of year and had very smooth greens. Overall great place to play
Class all around
From the time we arrived till finished enjoyed thoroughly!
During spring break, 2019, we decided to go golfing. Our group of four included two recreational golfers and two newbies. We all rented fantastic Callaway Rogue clubs and headed to the first hole. From the time we drove to the clubhouse, hit 9 holes, and dropping off the rentals, our experience was nothing but fabulous. Kevin and Paola were welcoming, helpful, and full of enthusiasm. We had such a great time, we returned two days later. I would highly recommend golfing at Craft Farms golf course. There are many courses from beginners to expert, everyone can golf. Thanks group and the next time we are are in the Gulf Shores, we will make tee times!
RI GOLFERS LOVE IT
You always know what u will get here. Professionally run. Enjoyable.
Beautiful course with lots of water. It's challenging but very playable. Well maintained, but pace of play was slow. There was a foursome in front of us that was very slow. A marshall would have been nice to speed them up. We started at 1:15 and finished at 5:45, waiting on almost every hole. Almost dark. I'd certainly recommend this course though.
Fun course slow play
Our foresome caught up to a slow threesome waited every shot they never offered to let us play through no one in front for two holes. They never offered to let us play through. This is when a ranger could have interviened but never saw one!
As a former employee and golfer. This course was great 12 years ago, and is even better now!
Great Place to Play on the Gulf
Played Cypress Bend at Craft Farms in a friends foursome two weeks ago. I highly recommend playing here. It is a great track! The staff was great, pace of play was excellent, and the course was beautiful even in mid February! The greens were excellent. I will definitely play here again this year. If you are going to be on the Gulf and want to get a round in, go check out Cypress Bend at Craft Farms. The practice facility is great too!
Fast pace, demanded
Course was in difficult condition and was extremely wet, especially in fairways. Cotton Bend does not drain very well, and the greens were very inconsistent, some slow and some fast. My primary concern is the
rudeness of staff, especially the starter and ranger on pushing our group to play faster. We played in 3 hrs 52 mins, and was told on several occasions to keep up with the group in front of us which was a 3 some who were playing the senior tees. This is not the first time we have been pushed at this golf course, but after today I will not be back, and will not purchase 6 packs at this course again.
Great staff and course
Feb. 6, 2018
We want to share how much we appreciated Paola and her assistance when we were at the golf course on Friday, Feb. 2 and today, Feb 6th. She is a real asset to the business and is VERY professional. We appreciated her advice of playing Cypress, as we haven't played much golf since November and weren't ready for any big challenges. She did a great job of managing the telephone and her customers. Because of her and your great golf course, we will be back on Thursday for a tee time of 1:04. Once again, it will be a pleasure to see Paola's friendly face when we check in.
Even though the area had received a fair amount of rain, Cypress was in great condition and not soggy. Play was at a steady pace.
We also want to mention that the starter was very helpful, as he took us to #1 and gave us a verbal layout of the course. The gentleman has a great sense of humor and was a great person to start us off on your course.
