If you like it slow, this is the place to go.
Have played this course for years but in the last several the play has become increasingly slower. This last round will be my last at this course. We left after 9 holes as it took close to 3 hours to play. I never understood letting 5-somes out but if you are going to continue this practice, it may be a good idea to at least make sure it is a 5-some with decent handicaps and are committed to keeping up with the pace of play. (The 5some in front of us had a combined age of 400 and a combined handicap of 150.) In addition, they have had issues with honoring tee times as they are always running behind. We went off 20 minutes late and this was not the first time. Taking a reservation is easy, keeping the reservation is the important part. On a positive note the course and greens were in good shape (at least on the front nine) and the price is one of the more affordable around but you better commit your whole day if you are going to play there.
Great City Course
Played at 0620 with a friend and two singles. Got out early and played behind two foursomes and got the round done in 3 hours 40 minutes. Having played Tierra Rejada last week and seeing the dry conditions their I was surprised at how green and manicured Knollwood is right now. Course is in great shape, tees, fairways, greens and traps, not perfect, but very good. I will definitely be back.
Fourth of July morning
Fourth of July morning! They let a lot of fivesomes out which slows up things. Our group was a hole ahead of the group behind us, never making them wait during the round. And the Marshall drove by us telling us to pick up our pace on the 17th hole that we were a hole behind the group in front of us. Very rude when the group behind us never had to wait, we were aware of it as we were all decent golfers! My suggestion is don’t stop on the ninth hole for food or drinks because the group in front of us didn’t and we were a little bit behind them afterwards! Other than the staff the course is decent and worth playing.
Never Have Played Here , But
After reading the first four reviews. I do not think would want to play here. 5-5 1/2 hours to play a round of gold is just a bit too much for me ...
Super conditions...but had a ton of time to look at them...
I have always liked KCC...old school course...but this course is crowded...super slow round...part of the problem are the tons of guys playing from all the way back...we played in about 5 1/2 hours...KCC is always fun, and GN usually has some good deals
Always slow. Nice layout, tough first hole and hole 10 is extremely hard. The price was right on GolfNow. I like the place.
Pace of Play
I enjoyed to play here except for pace of play. Our players do not like this course due to too slow pace of play that is over 5 and hours. I contacted the staff when the front player play slow because of the empty hole. They responded very well and controlled front players. Afterward the pace of play was made up.
Are you kidding me?
Arrived 45 Min early, had a 4 some booked for 2pm. Staff told us that carts were unavailable, as people come off the 18th hole they would give us a cart. They were already 4 groups behind and giving out hand carts. This course is notoriously slow anyway, and we were not about to wait another hour and maybe get a cart that loses power after 3 holes and walk 2 miles uphill back to the clubhouse. Extremely poor managed course. They did refund my green fee, however, told me that Golf Now would end up charging my card for the “Missed foursome”.. Thankfully Hansen Dam had a 3PM tee time available with a fully charged cart.
