Did not even get to play!!!
The course was overbooked and they did not even have enough golf carts. Waited for half an hour past my tee time and was told it could be another hour before we could play. Had to leave without playing. They would not refund the money because I had booked on GolfNow. I could not reach GolfNow because their number is not answered. Had to dispute the charge with my credit card for a refund.
Will probably never play here again. Makes me think twice before booking on GolfNow website as there is no way of resolving a dispute directly with them.
the bathrooms are in terrible shape and there are no bathrooms on the course. that is the only downside. other than that i always enjoy playing mayfair, the staff are excellent
This course is a total disaster! Starting off with an inept starter. We were waiting at the #1 tee box for 30 minutes before he let us go. His reasoning was for “spacing due to the Wuhan virus”. I get that but he waited for the group in front of us to get off the #3 greens before he let us go. To make matters worse, he let the twosome behind us go right after we did. We were putting on #2 and they appeared agitated that they had to wait. They pretty much stayed on our tail until #4 where they skipped around us to the next hole (blame the incompetent starter). The tee boxes are atrocious and lack grass. The cart paths are riddled with potholes. Don’t fall for any of these positive reviews. Much better courses nearby.
Working well through coronavirus crisis. These guys are hard working and friendly. Course in good shape considering how hard it must be right now to keep staff and everyone at a distance. They said the cops had been there to enforce distancing rules.
Old Course Looking Great
The historical Mayfair is in great shape. The greens were rolling true and the fairways were in good shape. The city of Sanford runs the course and has done a good job keeping it up to par. If you like an old school Florida course you will enjoy a day here,
Course was a bit rough in condition, but Im thankful they're open!
The staff was very friendly, the rates were good and I'm glad they were open!
That being said the course was a bit rough. Lots of dried out fairways, bare lies and bald spots.
Awesome ppl and good times if you don’t like waiting on the “leagues”, might as well join them they are open to everybody and are a blast. Highly recommended
Great for the price
My overall impression of the course is that it is better than the price that I paid. Due to a Skins game lasting beyond expectations, there was a shortage of carts and a 30 minute delay. Once on the course, the course was too dry, but the greens were well kept. The pace of play was slow, not due to players playing slow, but time management. Had I gone on a different day, I would have rated the course higher.
Nice place to play golf. Holes are different which makes for a fun day. Green and fairways were very nice. Tees were pretty rough. The only problem was a single jump in front of us on the back 9 which was wrong. No ranger on the course will allow this to happen.
Buddy and mine tees off at 1239 which was early however then quickly ran into issues with the pace. We didn’t finish playing till almost 6pm. There was a point that we waited at least 30 mins to tee off at a hole and every holt was at least 15 min wait to tee off there was no course ranger making sure pace was running well. Also I tried to talk to someone after we played to address it and found out after we pay for our round that it was free golf day. I tried talking to someone about this and no one was willing to help me.
Issues with facilities
Tried to play Friday. The course had internet issues and were unable to process payments. Place was packed and this caused a lot of frustration. We waited approximately 20 min as they attended to “reboot” their system. Customers were visibly agitated but the staff did a good job keeping their cool in such an awkward situation.
From conversations of the employees it sounds as if this a VERY common occurrence. Because of this I would warn others you might be wasting your time heading out there, and if you do give yourself plenty of time before your round if you plan on warming up prior to playing. The 45 minutes I had allotted was wasted on waiting to pay for the round before eventually leaving altogether.
Great staff and green conditions but...
I get it. The course is trying to do their best to get folks to play this wonderful little course. But giving preference to leagues during the day (putting everyone else on the back nine or front nine twice - only to compete with the folks teeing off the nine on the second time around - resulting in very slow play - 5 hours and a poor experience for all but the league). Letting 5somes play along with the two and trees and foursomes. This is NOT a regular course where rules govern common play etiquette. They have DJs on Fridays on the first tee to bring out the younger crowd (may not be your cup of tea - isn't mine). I've had too many bad experiences and probably won't be back.
This is a shame because the course comes from greatness - and now it's a circus.
