Played with two other guys and we were amazed at the lack of tee box maintenance on front nine. Greens were in good condition despite the numerous ball marks not repaired by previous golfers. bunkers were not racked

Tee boxes shoddy, Fairways spotty and lacking grass, greens in good conditions.

Overall fun track to play, just over priced for weekday play.

I’ve played Penderbrook a few times now and each time has been pleasant. This time was a late decision to grab a round at the end of the day. Course was a little more busy than it has been but understandably so as it was a late afternoon on a hot day. As always conditions were good and the pace was as well.

First time playing here. We walk in and like bam! just hit golf gold! Thre were specials with your green fee that you get cart and two free drinks -like beer/alcohol whatever! My friend was so pumped he buys a shirt and the dude says, 'oh that's on sale 1/2 off' and we walked outta there with 8 beers, a shirt, a dozen balls for like $50 each before we even tee off. Course wss a little rough but its been a crappy spring so I get it but overall nice layout and def challenging. You need to be accuate off the tee to have a chance. Perfect day for golf. I will play again.

Response from Penderbrook Golf Club on 04/27/2018:

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback! Our grass isn't actually dead, just currently dormant. Dormant grass is the norm for this region during Winter and early Spring, as overseeding is not common here. We hope you'll return in the future for another round to see the conditions in all their glory.

Despite the time of year, the course was in good condition. Only downfall is the pace of play and the lack of marshall’s to keep the ten stroke practice pre-swing players moving along. As if then ten practice swings weren’t enough, they take a few post swings as well. I’ve had to skip holes more than once, but always find myself (and others in my group) going back for more.

The course was in decent condition, there are remains from several bunker and sprinkler projects still being cleaned up as well as tree removal. Once that is all cleaned up, it will be interesting to see how the course comes in this spring. Club house check in was quick, staff friendly. The grill was being renovated and does not open until March 2018, so bring your own drinks or snacks.

I had a terrible experience in Penderbrook today. When we (4) finished the fifth hole, it began to rain. We tried to keep playing but could not, because it was pouring and cold rain. We asked raincheck, but were rejected. The manager said they cannot give any rain checks when the weather forecast said it would rain but we came. Never experienced in other courses. Penderbrook's rain check policy is the worst. Felt like we were robbed.

Starter seemed to be a nice guy that has no clue! The starter didn't go by the actual time and scheduled tee times....He told me and my playing partner the other 2 people scheduled to play with us wanted to play alone, which is fine, so he sent them off ahead of us. After waiting for two more twosomes to tee off he said we were next. We said great and we're putting on the practice green, which is right next to the tee. As we walked to our tee we noticed a couple walking in front of us to the senior tees. I went to the starter and asked what was going on? He then said we could go after them! I repeated to him he said we were supposed to tee off next, and reminded him he told us we were next? He looked at me and said "well I told them they could go ahead"! It is was it is, but the round was extremely slow, with no marshals seen until the 17th hole! Poor tee time management was the cause. The only thing that saved the day was the beautiful weather! I would not recommend playing this course if you know how to play and don't like to wait between every shot! Not a good experience this day!
