Good conditions despite overseeding

I had a great day at Starfire. The course and the greens were in good shape and the rate was excellent. I would recommend this course to anybody.

Don’t play here on weekends

Currently on a 5 1/2 hour round while on 14. It’s been terrible. Avoid this place on weekends. Sh** hole of a track for how busy it is.

Course I’m playing again...

Considering the summer heat the course was very plush and green.. The fairways were well groomed and the greens challenged your putting game... I recommend this course for any golfers regardless of their handicap... Course designed to challenge, yet forgiving... Cafe provides ample selection on the menu, and serves generous portions...

Disappointed

From tee to green poor conditions. the tee boxes are mounded and beat up, are flat boxes too much to ask? i think there were about 5 different types of grasses or overgrown weeds you’ll find on the course mixed with multiple dirt patches. Green speeds are inconsistent and very tough. the starters aren’t the friendliest of humans and really made our day long by letting 4 groups play in front of us because of THEIR mistake. Overall bad experience

The conditions of the course were disappointing.
Many bare spots and lots of crabgrass. The grill
however was great. The food was good and the
service was outstanding.

Thank you for playing Starfire and taking the time to provide us with your review. We do regret the conditions you experienced during your round. Unfortunately, due to multiple circumstances, including a hotter and drier summer than usual, we have suffered a difficult turf transition. Be assured that we are always working hard to ensure top conditions here at Starfire and everything will be in excellent condition again soon. We appreciate your kind review of Starfire Grille and Staff and we look forward to seeing you again soon. As always, please feel free to reach out to me personally.
