I book on Golfnow and an entry error was made should have been a 2 some at 1:40 on Saturday the 6th. When I received my confirmation it was for Friday the 5th. Could not change with the automated system with Golfnow. Called the course and they had zero interest in trying to help me. The time on Sat was still open and they could have easily helped me. Unfortunately no help form Golfnow nor the course so will have to dispute with my cred card and my son and I will have to find a more accommodating place to play.

Covid19 Cup Design

We’ve played other courses that have a better cup design. We prefer the ball to drop into the hole about 3-4 inches into a plastic disc so you know that you’ve made your putt. Don’t like the ball hitting the upside down cup system.

Getting better and better

The course is in very good shape this year, I’m glad management addressed the up-side down cup system versus the stirofom inset they are currently using (helpful hint, they should cut the stirofom down a couple of inches more so the ball doesn’t bounce out at times which happened in a Men’s Club event a couple of weeks ago)

Scenic

First time playing the course and it was great. Challenging but not overwhelming for people who shoot in the 80’s and low 90’s (which I do). Walkable course also. Shout out to a local who played in our group for the course advice.

SLOW, CROWDED, BASIC NECESSITIES, ASKS FOR CHARITY DONATIONS

I've played this course several times. It is by far the slowest course I have ever played. The earliest it's taken to finish a round 5 1/2 hours. On several occasions we simply quit after spending 3 1/2 hours to complete 9 holes. I've discovered that this is typical with all of the courses managed by American Golf. The reason is that they space their tee times 8 minutes apart as compared to the normal 10 minute break. Although this means greater profits for American Golf, it creates chaos by putting way too many groups on the course. On top of this, they have someone collecting for charity on one of the holes that delays play even further. Who wants to deal with one more group asking for money, especially when you're trying to relax and enjoy yourself. Also, is it too expensive to place a couple of ball-washers on the course?? It's basically a nice course run by a corporation whose sole goal is to maximize profits at the expense of their customers. Spend a little money, lengthen the period between tee times and quit asking for a hand out at the tee box!!!

Be ready for a long day

Beautiful course but very slow pace. Took just over 5 hours to finish our round. Fairways were in decent shape but greens could have been better.

Would it kill you to have water and ball washers???

No water or ball washers to be found ANYWHERE on the course. It's bad enough that though all the snow's been gone now for 8 weeks, they've only repaired ONE of the badly-damaged greens. (And even that repair, on 16, has suffered because the new surface has completely dried out. That raging river cruising through the course doesn't suggest there's water for you to use?) Strange how the greens are all dry, dead, and mostly-bare ... but the bunkers are wet and heavy.

Summer's here, guys -- GET YOUR ACT IN GEAR!
