Playing in a field

This was the worst course I have ever tried to play on. There was no fairways - the grass and rough was all one. The greens were overgrown with weeds that made putting impossible. The staff was not interested. I paid in advance through Golfnow, if not I would dispute the payment.

The worst course we have ever played on

We have played this course on numerous occasion and it is normally in fair condition. However today it was not a golf course at all it was just overgrown land that once was a golf course. The weed on the greens were bigger than the ones in my garden. The grass has not been cut for what looks like months. We played 9 holes and gave up. We advise the lad in the Pro shop and all he could say was sorry. Booked through GolfNow and when I complained to them about it. They said write a review but never mentioned giving me back my money. Poor show all round.

Great short course

Great short course, made up of 15 par 3s and 3 par 4s. Greens in excellent condition. Tees okay. Fairways could do with a little work. Par 3s as long or short as you want them with 4 tee choices. Undulating course with good views and lots of sand (but little water) made the course fun. Great for those that are not big hitters.

Not what we expected.

Par 57, only 3 par 4's. Challenging target golf. Great place to hone your iron game. Greens were awesome, tee boxes adequate. Areas around the greens need serious attention..Miss hits from box would leave you in some tight lies and wash out areas.

No Customer Service

I had booked this course for today (April 26/19) and we showed up for our tee time. It was going to rain according to the weather. This course had no rain check policy. They expected us to pay $75 US and maybe get a few holes in with no rain check. They said no rain checks “today”.

It’s the second time we’ve had issues with this course.

Never again.

Service at the Ridge Course

We arrived for our tee time only to find that the Office was not open and we would have to drive bac to the main clubhouse to pay and get a cart. We then had to drive the carts up to the course. At lunch time we called to clubhouse to see if they had any food available. We then drove the carts back to the clubhouse only to find the only thing they had to eat was hot dogs which were not looking the best. They had a few packages of one kind of chips, no straws and if you wanted a soda coke it was not working. The woman at the counter was the only person working and she lacked a friendlier attitude. We then had to drive the carts back up to the ridge ad when we finished. turn around and drive back dowb. When we stopped for a bite to eat we asked if we could drive a car back up and leave the carts at the ridge when we were finished and were told no. This was the second time in 2 weeks we had played this course and previously had been satisfied with the service. We felt that for our dollar and inconvenience we did not get our moneys worth. When we are back in Florida next March we will not be looking to book the ridge course again, based on the service and inconvenience, we experienced. It would have been much better if we had been told in advance that the ridge clubhouse was closed and to check into the main clubhouse.

Great Course

This course always seems to be in excellent condition. The tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in excellent condition. I enjoy playing here as it is challenging - miss the green and you have a problem. Play this course several times a year and would recommend it to all.

We had a tee time at 12:05. We arrived about 11:30 to fi d the pro shop locked and no sign of staff. We had already taken our clubs out of the trunk and changed our shoes. We had to repack the trunk and drive to th other pro shop. No apology, just a statement that they knew there was no staff there. We were given a score card and key to a cart and drove back to the course.
Have never had this experience before and did not like it.
