Poplar Creek is a good course with some challenging holes and a good layout.
The course is in good condition although a little wet from the rain.
Pace of play was better than normal.

Slow play by the Bay

I have played Poplar Creek many times over the years. It used to be a fun, friendly ~4 hour round. This Monday was different after 3 1/2 hours we walked off the course after completing just 12 holes. The course conditions were pretty good for winter. Balls in the fairways almost always picked up mud but the greens putted true and medium fast.

Used cart

Golf now prices do not include cart rental

I was surprised to see that my booking with Golf Now was no cheaper than the walk in price at the club, (I paid $30 at Golf Now and then I was charged an additional $15 for renting 50% of a cart which adds up to the same price as I would have paid at the club). Instead of saving, Golf Now did not provide the flexibility to cancel the booking. So next time I will not use Golf Now but rather reserve at the club.

6 Hours is NOT a typical round length

Sorry that you guys are trying to sell a 6 hour weekend round as typical, but that's a joke. That morning tournament took way too long to get started and delayed everyone else. Inexcusable, and no friendly customer service either.

Fix your tee times.

Marshall’s needed Marshall’s needed Marshall’s needed

Enough already-we had Four hear me Four groups on the tee box for the 2nd hole—it took 3hrs to finish 9holes..Staff was unresponsive when called requesting help.. came to find out that a group was waiting until the greens were cleared before teeing off..need more staff on course during holiday play. More recreational golfers come out to play, obviously plan for it..24 for a cart seems high., I won’t recommend

good course on a great day

Poplar Creek is a good course with an interesting layout.
There are challenging holes and a few easy holes.
The greens are very difficult but in good condition.
The weather was close to perfect. Normally Poplar Creek is windy but there was almost no wind today.
We played in 4 hours which is the norm.

Confusing

Not many signs pointing towards the tee boxes, as well as not many illustrations showing where the green is from the tee box. Overall great course for the price and great staff

Unfriendly staff

Marshall pushed too much to play with other players, even though i confirmed to desk staff that we can play just two of us.
I couldnt see the difference between two separated two player and four player together.
Eventhough he was angry, he need to think about what is the kindness.

Pop;ar Creek is a good course

Poplar Creek is a good course that is not too difficult.
The course was in better shape especially the greens.
The pace of play was much better than normal.
The biggest drawback is the lack of signs with yardage from the green.

Yelling to me without reasons

I played this course a few times and my experiences were great until yesterday. First, there are some high school players in front of us played very slow and one of the player complaint about that and they didn't do anything. Off course we can't finish as usual. One of the employees came to take my cart away before the sun was setting down. I just played here days ago until 8:20 PM without any problems. I asked why. He said I was told that I must return the cart back before 730. I said I did not hear it. Then he yelled at me very loud and very upset. I was so confused about his attitude. "why you yell at your customer" he said: "You lie and I hate liar!" What did I lie about?
I write this review only want all of their employees to handle this kind of situation with a sense of humor and not too sensitive. Any customer ever with a few questions should not be treated like this. Period!
