Horrendous pace of play management

Booked a 10am tee time via GolfNow only to show up to a line of golfers 30 deep waiting to tee off on 1. What’s the point of a “tee time” if you don’t get to be in the tee box at that time. They were letting walk ups pay and just head to the first tee. I ended up hitting my first ball at 10:50am. Not to mention it is a walking 9 hole course so you hit then wait. Finished nine holes in 4 hours. Payed for 18 on the app but wanted to get home before dinner. I’m not a snooty golfer so I can ignore the green conditions.

Great Municipal Course for the Price

I enjoyed my round at John A White. The fairways were well kept and most of the greens. The pace of play was quite poor, but a simple starter could fix the delay. Highly recommend to any new to the sport or casual golfers to play on weekends with friends.

The Golfnow app told me that we would get golf carts and we were not allowed to so we had to walk all 18 holes. Very upset

Great value and good walk

It’s a city course so don’t expect East lake. The course layout is truly interesting and fun. The greens are sub par but everything else is entertaining. The walk is equivalent to 44 flights of stairs so there is some elevation. I’m a stump meter the greens would be an 8 or less versus Bobby Jones where the greens are a 10+ in the meter. But great value for the $$$.

Good value

Tee boxes & greens could use some TLC but great value for the price if you want to keep your game tuned up. As one of the only courses that was open in the area during the shutdown, it got SUPER busy and slow.

Fun Course to Walk, Much Less $$$ Direct

We really enjoyed walking this course today. Our only regret was not booking directly. Golfnow almost always charges a discount rate. But not for this course. We could have paid just $7 (senior rate for 9) had we booked direct. Cost $16+ instead. For 9 holes, walking

First tee.

If you are a beginner golfer I would recommend this course for you. A lot of leverage to help you get your golf ball get to the pin. The hills help carry your ball but you better hit the ball straight to make par! Great course!

Bad start

The start was a cluster fuc. The starter was not by the first tee, so there was no direction as to who was up next. It was 9 am Saturday so lot of people started showing up. One single player jumped in front of all of us and was going to walk solo until another group of two decided to join him. With no Marshall around, we just let it happen so we were 15 minutes late teeing off. Once we teed off there were no more issues
