The starter was the worst
We had a 7:24 tee time and he kept telling us how we had to hurry because there was a league taking off right after us. we understood the first time but he kept going. we had to tell him that we got it and said he didn't need to repeat himself so much. and he goes "well thats how things go around here.
Nice course but the fairways are not cut what makes it more difficult
2.5 hours for 9 holes was not what I was expecting on a Tuesday afternoon! Waited for almost every shot. Talked to others that have played there before and it seems to be a consistent thing.
Other notes-course is pretty nice. Definitely some long and challenging holes. The greens are very difficult. Putting will definitely be your downfall on this course!
Right on the lake so you can see it just about every hole. Parking is not free so download the park mobile app or get ready to pay the box.
Overall I’d play again but I’d be expecting 2.5 hours to complete it.
Course cancelled on me
So the course ended up cancelling on me less than 24 hours before my tee time.
That being said, I’ve played the course before and like it a lot for a city course.
I would just really like to know why they cancelled on me?
The course sent us a cancellation on Saturday. Didn’t get a response, but I’ve played this course before, so I could leave a bad review. Not sure why it was cancelled by the course, but I’d like this to rectified.
Fun downtown course
Course is enjoyable when it isn’t too backed up. It’s not Augusta, but fun course to squeeze in 9 downtown/on the lake.
Fine course, unfortunate staff event
The course, the value and location are all great. However, I did not appreciate getting told by 2 staff members (on the same hole) that our group was playing slow -for multiple reasons. 1, I've been playing for 25 years and I know slow play, this was not slow play. 2, the group that was behind us and apparently complained only ever had to wait once, and it was a par 3 (waiting is extremely common). 3, we were told on the 7th hole of 9. That message falls on deaf ears when you wait that long and why did they need 2 staff members to talk to us. I get that they're doing their jobs but we got the message after 1. 4, we had a group of 4 and the group behind us had 3. Do the math, we are going to play slightly slower. Also, they never asked us to play through and apparently resorted directly to complaining. The rest of the day was great
Great day to be out so didn't mind at first, but I got to the 3rd hole and realized it took an hour to play the first two holes. Then there were 4 groups at the 3rd hole (one just finishing; 2 on the tee box when we got to it). I decided to walk off the course when the group behind us caught up to us as well. However, the manager, Ryan took care of the problem for me at the front desk. Ryan also helped me at check-in when the front desk person didn't understand that I had pre-paid for the round on Golf Now (she stated that nothing is ever pre-paid at the course -- which is odd, b/c this was my second time using Golf Now on it). Thank you, Ryan for saving the day/round for me!
Sydney Marovitz G/C
Very challenging and tough 9 hole course. The wind coming off Lake Michigan make all shots very difficult.
nice location for 9 holes vs sitting in traffic
traps unkept course rough but playing winter rules it was very playable....bums tent in a tree on a hole was a first...lol
I play here all summer. Great for getting out after work since the only range nearby has mats. The course is usually in great shape given its location and greens fees - greens are slow, sand traps can be muddy or hard.
My only real complaint (which is not their fault):
Pace: this is completely hit or miss because of the location. You get some groups who have never played in their life, extremely drunk groups, and everything in between. The rangers really do their best, but a round can last anywhere between 1:30 to 3hrs. Understanding that will make the experience much better (usually moves at 2hrs +/- 15mins). Get there before 9am on the weekends, or before 5pm on the weekdays, and you will be in great shape.
Not sure why I keep going here... the scenery mostly, I guess.
Located in the city
Beautiful location on lakefront
Staff is pretty gruff, especially the rangers
Could be maintained better - grass at the edge of the fairway is often too tall to see your ball until you are on top of it
Always crazy crowded
Kind of boring course - pretty flat and few hazards
A little TLC on the course maintenance, a bit more breathing room between golfers and a nicer staff this place could be charging notably more and golfers could be having a much more pleasant experience. Even though the course really isn't remarkable, I would pay more to come here because of the convenience and scenery if it wasn't such a pain in the behind to actually play here.
Nice 9-hole near downtown
I live downtown and this course is easy to get to by cab. Holes are nice and long. Not a par 3 course. It delivers on its promises. Very compact; pretty narrow. Not terribly challenging but a great place to get out and hit some balls! No practice green or driving range.
Great City ourse
Even though I live 15 minutes from the course, I had been putting off playing it for fear that it would be too short and not challenging enough for my above average game. I was pleasantly surprised. The fairways were a little wide, but the longer than average hole length made up for it. The greens played very well for it being November. I will use for the early season and later fall. I recommend it.
this course needs real sand
Most of the bunkers are pulverized dirt on a clay base. They started to fix the problem but have stopped. Please finish the project.
All around game play
Staff very a helpful .easy online reservations, and easy to get started on the course.
