Great 1st Time on Course

Arrived early to for 8:45 Tee Time, around 7:45 to practice on the driving range. Unfortunately it was closed due to Shooting Completion. So we picked up the golf carts, awesome carts new, and loaded up gear. Beautiful course, and changeling. Greens in great shape as were the fairways. Will defiantly refer other golfers to this course, and me and my friends will be back..
Thanks for a great time..

Grass is at a Premium

The greens are immensely improved from previous years but every fairway is some grass and much hard pan, For the elderly who roll the ball onto grass wherever they lie, maybe it works for them. For people playing actual golf, not so much.

Slow

Today we started 20 mins early ahead of a large league. The league pushed us continually. We got behind a foresome of slow people that were yelling at each other. The ranger apologized for the slow pace, saying the group in front was giving him trouble. But nothing was done. We skipped ahead passing the slow group who were oblivious or didnt care for the delay they were causing.

Duck.......

They need to be more organized at the starter position.
They have 3 - 9 holes courses, they put us out behind slower golfers, it didn’t look like the other courses had anyone on them.
Greens need work as well.

Booked through Golf Now

We have booked this course two times. Both times we have arrived 15 to 20 minutes early and been rushed onto the course and told that there is a tournament following us. We had to do four holes by a certain time. I like the course but I felt like every time I arrive there it was a rush even though we are early. Paul and Becky.

Nice Course

Fairways were in great condition. Greens where in great conditioning with challenging hole placements. We were sent out in front of a group of 30 and we did not no the course at all so it was a little challenge to stay ahead of them. Overall, it was a great course.

Got Belittled

When I went to the PRO SHOP to ck in the guy that checked me in made a deal (in front of another golfer)about the fact that I did not pay the course any money . I said to him that the course must get something from golfnow or they would not use them he said "we don't get anything from golfnow " I then went out to play feeling bad . Not sure how it works but this is the only time that I have been told this by any pro shop person ! The course was ok !

Great Afternoon on the Silver Dollar Golf Course

We booked a 12:45 tee time / got to the course early - hit a medium bucket of balls ($7.50) / putted around on the practice putting green and started play at the designated time with the starter on hand to monitor things - Course was in good shape for this time of year - Water hazards came into play on many holes but quite manageable - Weather was awesome - After our round we stopped into the onsite restaurant for a couple of cool beverages and a quick bite ($2.50 beer/$1.00 drink and $5.00 chicken fingers) Will most certainly be back - We had a great afternoon !

Great layout, not great shape

I love the layout at Silverthorn. There are very challenging holes and a great variety of dog legs and risk/reward opportunities. I remember playing it 25 years ago when it was immaculatley maintained. I wish I could saty that now. I have played it 4 or 5 times in the past year and keep going back becasue of the layout and the price. However in all the times that I have played it recently, I have yet to see a golf maintanance worker on the course. The bunkers are never raked, the fairways are sparse,, the collars and aprons are terrible, the tee boxes are average on a good day and the greens, normally good are showing some wear lately. I wish they would spent some money on grass seed and fertilizer. Those two items alone would greatly improve the experience.

Fun day

First time playing the course. Wife and I teamed up with two people who have played the course before. That really helped as there is trouble in key areas of the course. My wife really enjoyed playing as the red tee’s did get some great placements to shorten when needed and take “some” of the water out of play. We put this course on our lists of play again!!

was a cold, windy day. Allowed to tee off early. Front 9 greens are mostly small and significant slope. Played white tees but course has two more shorter sets. Lots of room on most fairways but some require a proper lay-up to avoid hazards. Great value for our money.
