Slowest Round I’ve Ever Played

I’ve played here a handful of times. Pace of plays is always fairly slow. Today was painfully slow. The group ahead took forever on tee boxes, fairways and greens. Not once did anyone from the course come around to check on pace. The bar cart was easily found, but couldn’t find a Marshall anywhere. Took 5hrs and 8 mins to finish. I’d go back, but I sincerely hope they send out a marshall to regulate play.

Too Busy to make for a fun day.

made a mistake to play day before Thanksgiving. Super busy, backed up 2 groups each hole. Tensions among golfers high. Had to leave after five hours of play at 16th hole.

Good course but beware of errant balls

Course is in good condition with greens running average speed. Pace was a little slow but about average for this course (little over 5 hours). Pace was probably dictated by the fact that there was always another golfer from another fairway in our fairway on almost every single hole and it started while in the 1st tee box. Saw multiple people disrespecting the course by driving their cart in/through a tee box while looking for their ball. Cart girl was always around but didn't see a marshall anywhere during the entire round.

They DOUBLE-BOOK their tee-times

Well, don't expect me to ever go play at this course again. Customer service was under-par...I check-in 20 mins before my tee-time, and I'm told to come back because they have zero carts. I ask the group teeing off what time is their tee time? They say they x:xx, and I'm like...what? I have the the same tee time. I come back "1-minute" before my tee-time and tell the starter about it, he says, "Sorry, the system double-booked..we still don't have a cart for you". So, I check-in and pay without being given a cart and now I'm on the tee. I eventually teed-off without a cart and they brought me just as I was leaving the 1st tee. Pace of play was abysmal with 3 hours each 9 holes for a 6 hour round...what?!!! Greens were spongy and slow, seemed like they over-watered as wet spike marks were all over. Overall, the bunkers and fairways were the best kept areas. Easy course and shot an easy 75, but not worth the mental drain of slow play.

Narrow and slow

The course condition is almost always on the good side. It is a well manicured golf course. However, it is very narrow and many of the holes are literally right next to each other. So, there will be a lot of players yelling "fore" all over the course. The pace on weekends can be very slow, and sometimes they have private/public shot-gun tournaments, so players beware--especially if you're using Golfnow, read the fine lines carefully. This course suits older player who can hit straight but not long.

First time here

Good course that is challenging yet playable for any level golfer. Fairways were being aerated so that made the experience less pleasant. But overall the course played fair and I had a good time.

Fun course

Nice mixture of holes. Some narrow fairways, hidden hazards and fair greens. I’m looking forward to a second crack at this benevolent track.
