We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us 4 stars. We work hard to maintain the course for everyone's benefit, which means aerifying the greens as part of our regular maintenance schedule and keeping them in pristine condition. We will let the entire crew know their hard work is paying off. We hope to see you on the first tee again at Mill Pond Golf Course.

Unprofessional

We showed up for tee time early and the man in the pro shop took our money then told us the greens were aerated and were in ok shape. They were terrible. We went out first as 2 and finished in 2 1/2 hours and we played 2 extra holes then returned cart and the rude and obnoxious bag boy told us we paid for 18 only and gave us a hard time and I told him we paid for greens that weren't aerated and he told us that's not his problem. I told golf now and the apologized and gave us some golf balls. Overall the whole staff was rude and obnoxious.

Something changed

I am reviewing Mill Pond again because it has changed. I have played here five times since July. I played 4 of those rounds on Wednesdays around 11 AM. Out of all of these times I have yet to play a round in under 4-1/2 hours. The course is 6300 yards long. The pace of play is unbearable. Today we left after 2-1/2 hours on hole 10. Unfortunately I believe they are flooding the course with too many people for money with no regard for the golf experience. It is a big disappointment.

Bizarre Ranger Behavior

This course Ian beautiful and challenging.
I would never think of giving a poor review. But a circumstance with one of the rangers was bizarre to say the least.

Our grouping had two experienced players and two first year players. The Ranger pulled up near our tee box to wait for us to complete teeing off. Two of the new players hit poor tee shots. The Ranger then seemed it appropriate to approach us and instructed us to pick up pace of play. The interesting thing was the group behind us never came within 2 holes of us. His conversation should have been reserved with the group behind us or groups even further back than that. We did not impede anyone’s pace of play in the least. He just happened to see two errant tee shots and thought he would flex some muscle.

For more experienced players like two of outnumber four including myself, this can be shrugged off. But this is exactly the type of hardheaded behavior that turns off so many newcomers to golf. Don't make new players who have just started playing this season feel inadequate. Embrace those players. Our group plays fast and picks up balls that are OB or mishit. You don’t have to be a great player to be an adequately paced player. Really disappointed with this particular incident.

Great time had by all

Tees off 20 minutes earlier than our tee time. Played in 4 hours. A pleasantl day of golf. If it wasn’t for the windy conditions I might have played better. Course is tough but fair. All in all, a great golf course and a great day.

A real gem

What a great surprise...The bag drop off guys were very friendly and quick to help out. Check in was quick and easy, another friendly staff member. We started on the exact tee time.. I loved the course and will become my new favorite,,,My only issue was a wait on almost all tee boxes, this was not due to just the people in front but whole course looked delayed.. A 5 hour round. However such a beautiful day and course I give an excellent rating

Hello, frankiejo63. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. We are glad to see you rated the customer service to be great. Thank you for playing Mill Pond Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

Poor Managment

The starter was not friendly. The course was over booked . You could see across the first several holes and it looked like the LIE at rush hour. To make matters worse there were maintenance workers everywhere. They were weed wacking in the middle of the fairway on hole 2. Blowing and weedwacking at the green of 3. Weed wacking and blowers blaring at both ends of the 4th hole. The noise did not stop. Lawn mowers after that. On the 15th my friend shanked one and hit the maintenance guy in the head. He was operating a blower on a tractor. You could not hear yourself think. Thankfully he was wearing a hard hat. We stareed on Friday at 9:20am and competed our round at 2:30 pm. I took the day off and paid for this. Terrible expierance.

Good course

Layout is good, Scottish style love it! Long and short holes, tight fairways, water, bunker, trees in 1-2 holes, thick roughs and fescue, great test overall.

The greens are too slow! It was 8-9, would be fantastic and more satisfying if speed up around 10-11. Most bunkers are lack of sand and too many small stones it most of them, appeared to be under managed. So course condition “3”.

The ranger was rushing us unnecessarily. Duh, when we teed off, the group in front of us was 1.5 holes away, then there was a 2-some behind us (4-some with 3 playing here the first time), so we let the 2-some pass but we didn’t hold up anyone after that as the group behind was a 5-some, our second group that day. The ranger appeared twice, the second time on a par 5 in front of me on the fairway when I was about to hit my second shot 200 yds over the water... was unnerving and I missed! That’s why the “2” on staff friendliness.

Fescue

Love the course, great condition, Tee boxes chewed up a bit, doesn’t take away from this gem. Just keep your ball out of the fescue, you can watch exactly where it rolls in and it still disappears. Two thumbs up on this course.

Phenomenal course, challenging yet not grueling. Friendly staff, pristine conditions, lovely views. Just the right amount of challenge to the greens, not too easy yet certainly not overwhelming.

Pace of play was horrible , starter was intent in trying to catch up and sent 4 groups in less than 20 mins

There were two groups ahead of us that were at least 2 holes behind , ranger sat in the shade and did nothing even after being told how slow they were . God why do horrible players play from the tips and can’t hit a straight ball . That is bad enough when the ranger sits there and let’s then get away with it . After 8 holes I told ranger this was BS and left which was $80 for 8 horrible holes will not play there again
