Course was in good shape consul all the water we got
Bee ranger to be visable 4 some ahead was playing up to 10 shot each
Awesome course. Great condition, Wide fairways, challenging water holes, very enjoyable experience overall.
Warning to all golfers
Our foursome had 2 slow foursomes in front of us and back of us. We were warned in the 1st tee of slow play. At the 7th hole a twosome from probably the 6th hole drove. by 1 foursome in back of us and thru our foursome and thru another foursome. We called the manager and Dominic finally came out 1 hole later. We had two foursomes waiting on the 9th tee explaining the twosome went thru both of our groups without asking. Here's the rub: The GM only WARNED the twosome not to do that again. They should have been kicked off the course. I've been playing golf for 45 years and never experienced something like that, or a GM with no common sense to take action to solve the problem. I will never be back. BTW--course conditions are getting really bad. Bare fairways, ball marks all over the greens and the range needs a lot of work. Also the slow play has reached a all-time snails pace.
Great value, slow play
Played for the first time; great value $29! After 3pm with a cart and my son played free. Tee boxes and greens were in rough shape, according to the young lady on the beverage cart they had two outings that day and the golfers were more concerned about hydrating than repairing ball marks and divots. We played 14 holes before things came to a dead stop with two to three foursomes waiting to tee off on the remaining holes....so we called it quits as the 14 holes took 4+ hours
Nice course but a little slow
I love this course but could use a little help on the pace- well worth the drive- staff were very friendly and helpful. The course was in very good shape.
Great Course, amazing deal
The course is beautiful, and definitely challenging if you have never played here. Course management comes into play often. The fairways are perfect and very soft, and even in late July. The only thing I noticed that could use improvement, was the greens. People need to fix their ball marks, and fix them with care!
I like the different holes layouts
Everything about the course I like, except not enough drinking water, or distance posts, on the down side, signing in is terrible, slow and timely, to many ?, I was at desk 20 minutes, I will return but dread signing in process
I've played there since they opened...and I'll never go back. Got hassled for "slow play" on a Sunday morning. Played 18 AND stopped at the turn to eat a bratwurst and grab a beer. Teed off at 7:15 ish, finished at 11:30. Slow play? Don't think so. Certainly didn't deserve to get stalked by the ranger. Will NEVER go back.
Worst Greens Around
It's crazy how bad these greens are. Preserve courses have better greens. I will not pay over $40 to play this course in the future. Just not worth it.
The key to this course is being in the first few groups of the day. Otherwise you are looking at 5 hour rounds. Today the course was in great shape. Didn’t see anyone until the 14th hole. Course was generally in great shape except for 8 and 18 which was cart path only. But it’s to be expected with all the rain. I hope the exposed drain tile in some of the bunkers is a sign that whisper Creek is working on the drainage. Green we’re rolling and holding well. Rough was at a manageable length but again with the rain it’s almost impossible to keep up.
Outings or not there should never let 5 domes play as it will slow down the entire course or just do not book any other play for that day
Challenging & Fair
The course was completely open, never had to wait for anyone. Each hole had its challenge but hole 8 was the hardest I had to play. The course was ready for play with minimal areas where water had saturated the ground. Some bunkers could have used some sand but this is a nice place to play.
Course is great
Like the lay out of the course a lot the stagered fairways on the par 5s are unique
This is a fun course. There was no starter, and one member of our group had to call for a ranger. We did not stop after the 9th hole. We went right to the 10th. We had a nice pace going. On the 10th 4 carts 8 guys were between us and the group we followed through the first 9 holes. It appeared that some teenagers jumped on the course. The ranger really didn’t remedy the backup. The ranger should have asked for there recipe. There was a real failure to listen.
Challenging - but not well maintained
Many challenging holes in a rambling layout. Lots of variety for 18 holes. Off course amenities are average but expensive. Good driving range and practice layout. But the course is desperately in need of work - both on the maintenance as well as the management side. This course does not handle heavy rain very well and this summer slammed the course. The greens are pitted with ball marks - whether the cause is failure to repair ball marks or whether the greens need to be plugged and sanded - the result is the same. The sand traps are so unplayable they constitute ground under repair. In dryer times the traps are well laid out so as to challenge the golfer. But they are equal parts pebbles and sand. The tee boxes are pitted with ruts from overuse. The tee markers are not moved enough to prevent overplay. The course suffers from major Canada Goose droppings making certain holes disgusting. There are many other courses in this area that have handled hard rains and heavy play, so the only explanation for the course condition is poor management. Pace of play makes the course condition even more annoying. While the service staff is friendly they do not monitor pace of play. Rounds of 4 1/2 hour’s is typical. The pro shop is adequate. Best advice is avoid weekend play and days when leagues play. Avoid play for a week after rain. Value for your golfing dollar is better spent on another course or once the course is brought back to a playable condition. Fire up Go,f Advisor and find a better course with a better deal.
