Depends what you are liking for- not bad though

Nice layout- greens need major work but if you are not a golf snob- you will enjoy!

-1 on a scale of 1 to 10

The city needs to either make improvements or stop stealing money and calling this a golf course. The fairways are decent and that’s it. I haven’t played here in some months and it’s the last time.. Can’t believe I actually paid almost 20 dollars for this. Still shaking my head..

Rough

Course conditions, especially greens, in the worst shape I’ve ever played. Signed up for 18 holes not realizing it was only a 9 hole course. We skipped the second loop and called it a day. If you’re going for a little bit of practice and don’t care about conditions AT ALL , then I guess it serves it’s purpose.

BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

This course is a solid course especially for the price point! The greens can definitely be more taken care of, but that’ll hike up the price. So, for a beginner like myself, I’ll take this course once or twice a week as practice any day.

It's an okay course!

First the positives. The course plays very fast, and the staff was very friendly. The not so good feedback would be the greens are in terrible condition, and the fairways are just okay. If you just want to work on your game and get through a quick round of golf this place is the place to go. I really wish they'd fix up their greens because this could be a nice course with a little TLC.

John A. White Golf Course

John A White golf course is a good course for the money. . Staff was friendly and kept golfers moving toward their tee times. This historic course seems to have a loyal following. Overall as a first time player on this course, I really enjoyed it.

Marshall not helpful

Brought my wife to the course for first time. She is a new golfer and doesn’t have clubs. She was apprehensive and nervous because there were quite a few golfers around waiting for first tee. Had paid through Golfnow for 2 golfers and we didn’t know of rule that said each person had to have own set of clubs. She’s just used mine in the past at other courses because she’s brand new to the sport. Walked up to first tee and Marshall basically said we were out of luck to play. She was pretty dismissive and unwelcoming to the both of us. Instead of asking us about our situation she made my wife feel pretty excluded which she was already feeling anyway. Later after my wife got pretty upset she offered us a loaner pair of clubs or refund. She was right to enforce the rules but to someone new to the sport who didn’t know the rules, the Marshall could’ve used a little more personal approach to new customers. We left without playing or refund. Customer service at this course was pretty bad on this day. Not sure I would return.

Great value for the money

There was a good variety of holes to challenge most skill levels. Greens are an on going battle, however; they are getting better.

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.
