Very slow pace of play, waited 5-10 minutes at each tee. I’m somewhat of a beginner, but did not find this course beyond my skill level, pretty beginner friendly. At the same time, I was playing with a few experienced golfers who found the course to be sufficiently challenging. All in all it was worth playing and made for a good afternoon.
Pace of play
I enjoy getting out early for quick rounds of golf. Everytime i play there i make the turn to find they have let people randomly off the back 9. Most wont let you play through or its pointless to try to play through back to back foursomes. Its frustrating to make the effort and pay to play a nice paced round only to have to give up on the back 9. They should care more about their customers experience than just making a buck. They obviously dont.
No customer service
Gone are the days of customer service. This place isn't expensive, but considering you can play cheaper at other places in Utah I was expecting to have a decent experience and I wanted to try this course out. I got to the course and was told to go to the back nine in order to have a better pace of play. Good. It was all downhill from there. I wanted to get some food at the turn. No one there. I asked the Pro Shop. "Oh they leave at 3." I saw they had a soda fountain in the Pro Shop. At least I can get a drink. Only to find they had no ice. I asked the Pro Shop attendant. "Sorry we are out of ice" Terrible. I was lucky they had a drink fridge. No soda but Gatorade and water. So lame. The kid running the Pro Shop said he gets hungry sometimes. I told him he should tell his manager. Just no customer service. Greens were in bad shape as well. Just a poorly managed place. Won't be back.
I paid $50 to play this course thru Golf Now. When I got there my wife noticed they a special rate of $30 between 10-2 and a normal rate of $42. We teed off at 9:26 but we're never informed of the special rate by Golf Now or the pro shop staff. The staff refused to refund any of our money. The course was very average at best and we left with a feeling of being ripped off.
Fun Layout and course is in great condition
The golf course is great, but the people in the pro shop are even better. David, in the pro shop was fantastic (very helpful, friendly, accommodating, etc.)
I have never played this course before and I really enjoyed the course. I was a single and was paired with another twosome. They were great, friendly and helpful to give information about each hole that was not straight forward. The greens were smooth and nice with lots of undulations (very few ball marks not repaired by fellow golfers). The fairways and rough were thick and lush. If you are in the rough, be ready to have to hack it out because the rough is very thick and you will not get your normal distance (as it should be, you are in the rough and not in the fairway).
I would highly recommend the course because it is in great condition and David in the pro shop was the best!!!
Don't waste your time/money
I've been playing at Sleepy Ridge very frequently for the last four years, it was the home course for my high school golf team. I have always disliked this course but today I was put over the edge. The course is in the worst condition I have ever seen, ball marks dot the greens, you can't find a level tee box, and with the exception of Gary the staff is extremely rude and stuck up. It is a public course so some of these things are expected but definitely can be handled better. Don't waste your time coming here to play, go to: East Bay, Spanish Oaks, Soldier Hollow, Wasatch, or Talons Cove. They are all a bit farther away from the Orem/Provo area but the drives aren't bad and you will have a MUCH more pleasant experience. I do not recommend playing golf at Sleepy Ridge.
Unfriendly Layout for First-Time Players of the Course
- Very good conditions
- Beautiful Mountain Views
- Nice Clubhouse
- Very unfriendly layout if you are unfamiliar with it
- Lots of forced carries with very long (chest-high) grouse that obscured landing areas and greens. Often didn't know which way we were supposed to go.
- Lots of chest-high grouse everywhere else on the course, too.
- No memorable holes. Zero holes that I really want to play again.
- Cart paths are far away from greens
- Only two areas where players can get water (one on back nine, one on front)
- Steps out from Pro Shop to course are large stones. Difficult to navigate---horrible if you are a senior. Really stupid idea.
- Finding the first tee was weird. Easily missed if you don't know exactly where to go.
- Lots of houses (although they didn't really get in the way of play---other than the treks between holes)
BOTTOM LINE: I feel no need to play this course again.
We played the course just over a week earlier, and the greens were acceptable - today they were horrid. Top dressed for speed, bumpy, pins cut on the sides of hills - three and four putts were common in our group. Add to that a high school tournament with several groups walking and we crawled through 14 holes, waiting at each tee box and before each shot, before giving up and going home. Not a fun day.
Good course with considerable benefit given to women via shorter length, making it much more fair. Greens were quite slick, but true. Friendly staff. Not an extremely difficult course, but challenging. For those unfamiliar with the course, there are no readily available diagrams of the holes, making it difficult to know where to aim drives.
Great views and lots of bull rushes
It's a beautiful golf course with some good challenging holes. Very flat with some wonderful views of the local area and mountains.
Sleepy Ridge a great venue
Our round (4some) at Sleepy Ridge was great. The Staff were welcoming and accommodating. The course played challenging rewarding good shots and punishing all others. The greens rolled beautifully! There are a number of blind shot approaches that require pin-point accuracy of the shot.
This was an overall great course. My only complaint was with the pace of play, but this could be because we golfed on a Saturday at noon time. I would definitely golf this course again though. Great facilities, friendly staff, and well kept course.
As close to a true links style course as you will find in Utah. The fairways and greens are in good condition and the tee boxes allow for different levels of ability to still have a good time playing.
The only con, the bunkers are not consistent are in need of some fresh sand.
This Course has huge potential but it have never reached its full flare but it has a few holes I love like #15 strong 3 wood roughly 240 of the tee box can set you up for a solid 120-150 into the green on a side not the staff is typically rude I was shocked to see the course in descent shape stay out of the sand its almost like mud not a silky sand trap on the whole course greens weren't to bad better then normal no food available (was mothers day so no food i will forgive) on this visit I would give the course an overall 6.5 out of 10 p.s. don't for get your bug spray mosquito city at dusk
They forgot to call us out for our tee time and then put us out on the back to start. We got caught behind some very slow groups, the course was nice but the pace was poor
The course had some challenging spots it was fun. The greens could of been a bit faster. Some roughs were actual roughs and enjoyable. Overall fun. I would golf it again.
Great links style course!
Great links style course! Great food! Played in less than 4 hrs on a 70* Saturday in March.
Nicest club house you may ever see!
This is a good course. There aren't any trees on the course, so if you hate trees, this is the course for you. Bring some mosquito repellent if you plan on playing here in the summer and fall, as it is built right next to a bunch of lake habitat. Many times you'll find superb deals on golfnow for this course.
Great value course
Staff is great, course is usually in really good shape. Can't beat the value. Back nine is the prettier than front.
