I book this course, this is one that we have not played at the time. we arrived , my hubby son and I with our 4 yr old granddaughter. my son was only here for a few days from PA where he works. hes gone a 3 months at a time. once we got there he was informed that our granddaughter could not be on the course. it was not stated on their web site nor on golf now or on any walls, doors at their facility. I was angry. we always take her with us and our 6 yr old daughter when we go play. sometimes we have to pay $ 5-10 for an extra rider. not at this course. we had a civil argument, while I was on hold with golf now, he stated he dont know of any course that allows children this course is rough and bumpy. I said we just played at sherman hills, thats way more rough, steep hills/mountains ect. she was fine there. I named all the courses that we play and and never a problem with our children this course is nothing compared to courses we have played at. so I'm still on hold to get my money back and eventually we were able to play only if I signed a piece of paper relinquishing them from being liable if something happen to her. not a problem I did that.. I assured him she would be fine and she was.. he was a nice man indeed, but I guess he was following their policy which should have been posted on line, and on their establishment doors, windows ect.. We will NOT be going back.. the course needs A LOT of TLC. was it worth the money I paid? No! now Sherman Hills is the course to play.. Love that course!

The course was good to play. Thought we were getting a discounted price until the "convenience fee + tax" was added onto the price. Guess I don't understand why the golf course and Golf Now can't display the cost of play without passing on a convenience fee + tax for booking. I plan to call corses directly from on to get "the" price up front.

Good course, my wife likes this shorter but not easy course. New Owners seem to be doing many improvements,all good. I just hope they don' t raise the price too much more then they have already have! Watch out, the course charges more than quoted on golf now reservation.

We golf this course usually once a week, I have never been held up like this before, there was a 4 some who didn’t let anyone play thru & they were very slow, there was a twosome behind them, then a father and young son who was playing more than golfing , then a single golfer in front of us, then our twosome and a twosome behind us and on & on!! It took us over 30 minutes to play two holes!!! It was horrible we didn’t even golf the last hole because of it!!

This golf course is a nice par 63 course which is in good overall condition. Most par 3s with some 4s and one par 5. you are able to use most of your woods and irons around the course. Their are a couple of tricky water holes but for the most part it is relatively easy course. Staff were friendly and they have a nice putting green prior to going on your round.Its good for the average golfer and good value for the money

Perfect weather for a round of golf. Paired up with a couple super nice guys. Course was in pretty good shape until we ran into the geyser on the green at 14. Apparently a water line had busted. Other than that a good day..

This is strictly an executive course and not a course that let;s you use all the clubs in your bag ,except the 18th hole. Too short for most players looking for a typical 18 hole layout .Ok to play if you want to use a lot of shorter irons
