Always enjoy playing here but....

I always enjoy playing here, it’s a nice course and it’s well taken care of. The greens were recovering from aeration a few weeks ago but that’s ok. Unfortunately the last 3 times I’ve played here I along with other groups were stuck behind a slow playing group of 5!! Major traffic jam atleast 12- 15 people!!!Very frustrating, the facility needs to limit groups to 4 and regulate slow playing groups and advise them to step aside. Fortunately We finished although it was very dark. I was only able to finish because 2 of the groups in-front of us decided to play the front 9 again and 1 group quit after the 15th hole, the groups behind us all quit and left.

Good course but....

Had a 1140 tee time arrived at 1045, when asked if we (party of 2) could tee off early we were told no because we booked online! Well from 1045 to 1125sh no one teed off ... of course a group of 5 tees off at 1125!!! so we were pretty much waiting all day!!! Really sucked! Took over 5 hrs! Ridiculous!!

Best Public course in the area.

The Reserve is a great golf course. I have been a member there for many years. It’s always been in good condition but this past year has seen exceptional improvements. The greens are fast but they hold a well hit shot. Fairways are the best I have ever seen them. You can’t go wrong at the Reserve.

Great Course and Value

First time playing at The Reserve, and a tremendous course for the Twilight price. Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and greens are all in solid condition. Greens ran really fast and smooth. Only knock is a bit difficult knowing how many yards out you are from the green with a lack of yardage markers. All in all a fantastic course and we'll be back again soon!

Slow play

Brutal pace, 5-51/2 hours.
Strange since the course was not overbooked, just need course marshal to prevent groups joining together and encourage faster play.
Have played here several times, always the same slow play on a nice course.
