Absolutely pristine

Beautifully laid out and maintained. Lots of challenging holes with plenty of water in play. Greens rolled very true and there are definitely some tough ones. I've paid a lot more to play 18 elsewhere and not been nearly as satisfied.

Cardinals Best

I have been playing at Cardinal's East and West courses for the past 5 years. I always enjoying playing both course because they are always maintained in great shape and are both challenging courses. I have shied away from Red Crest because I've heard how difficult the courses although being a beautiful course.
They weren't lying when they said it was a beautiful course it is truly one of the most beautiful public courses I played at it is up there with Angus Glen in terms of beauty. But don't be fooled by this beautiful course it is a very tough course to play and it is not for amateur golfers. Tight Fairways and tricky greens. Having a long drive does not give you an advantage of on this course you need to play smart and target golf on quite a few holes. The course was absolutely well-maintained and the pace of play was great for a Saturday afternoon.
I will definitely be back at this course again maybe play this course once a month since it is so reasonably priced.

Course in good shape, but pace of play and MGMT horrible

Despite there being 10 minutes between tee times, we were delayed by 20 minutes from our t off time. There's no evidence of anyone on the course trying to keep the pace of play reasonable.
A group of walkers or moved ahead of us because the staff had not managed their golf cart inventory properly. We had booked a tee off time four or five days in advance, with a cart, and there were no carts available when we got there. So we were given the option of waiting for two more carts, or going off two per cart even though the four of us were not from the same household and probably should not do this given the covid environment.
For $100 pp this is brutal . I will be recommending people stay away.

What can you expect?

Love this course. Well laid out and very nice. After a heavy downfall of rain on Saturday night, clearly the course wasn't ideal. What do you expect for late October golf! Considering how much rain came down the night prior the course was playable and we had a lot of fun.

Surprisingly, for an afternoon tee off and despite all that rain there were plenty of groups playing. The pace of play was pretty slow as there were times we were waiting close to 10min to tee off , waiting for the group in front of us as they waited for the group in front of them.

Love this place can't wait to go back in warmer weather.

Great Course - Unfriendly Course workers

Very nice golf course. My only criticism is the on course workers to be terrible. Not friendly and oblivious when it comes to clearing out of the way when a shot is coming their way. About to tee off on one hole and a groundskeeper on a mower drove across the fairway in front of me about 150 yards away. Also, there are no course marshals so pace of play is more good luck than oversight.

Good and Bad

First issue is a little touchy, but here goes. The majority of the players are Asian. Most are fine and friendly, others are not friendly and do not even want to play with non-Asians. If you do get stuck with a group of them, they will not speak English - at all. They tend not to rake bunkers or fix ball marks on the green. Front desk staff are fine. Course workers are not friendly and seem oblivious to driving equipment when players are about to take a shot. I was on the first hole, ready to tee off when a big mower drives right across the fairway 150 yards away from me. One maintenance worker gave my playing partner crap for not saying “fore” louder. Very unfriendly group. That being said, great layout and a good test of golf.

Rush

I thought when you book a tee time that locks your time in .. at 16 Marshall tells us if we don’t speed up that we won’t be able to finish .. what a joke . First time in my life someone has said or done this to us .. there were 4 players in front of us also! Lol

If you won’t let the golf cart out to your car to get your clubs won’t even start the cart until they lead you to the first tee. Looks like golf for dummies to many rules could even take the mandatory cart to the practice green and they don’t have a driving range to go to.
I wonder if this was the image they originally thought of.
And that $10 bonus golf now gives you I will make sure I use it the first snow storm we get here if it doesn’t expire before then.
