A buddy and I booked a round of golf on GolfNow for a Wednesday 7/11 and got there bright and early. We paid for North/South which I was looking forward to playing, instead they started us on south and wanted to finish on the east course. Unfortunately my buddy was made aware of a family emergency during play on the 7th hole. We drove to the course together so I had to rush him home to his family. We rushed to the pro shop to see if we can get a voucher for a future 9 hole round so the staff member went to the back to ask his manager what they could do. He took his time while he was very aware I had an emergency to attend to then finally brings me a business card. The manager must have been too busy to deal with paying customers. Things come up, accidents and emergencies happen, instead of being understanding and making things easier on us we ended up just wasting valuable time. This is my first ever review of an establishment, I’m writing only in hopes that the owner reads this and gets his staff together for a long lesson on customer service.

I have not played this course for some time because it used to be very slow play, but not on 6/27/18 when I played.

I will play this course again soon and hope that the pace of play is good as it was on 6/27/18.

The staff was very friendly !!!

My friend and I liked the course but the pace of play was very poor. As we were waiting for the group in front of us a group behind us were yelling to play. Of course we couldn't or we would have hit the group in front. The marshals need to ask the groups to move on a little quicker or let the group behind play through. I am not a prejudice person but the Asians that play seem to play like they are the only ones on the course. To many practice swings and then after they hit the ball a couple of more practice swings. I try to get along with everyone on the course but it does get a little frustrating.

Course was nice and not too expensive but the 3 groups of 5 somes in front of us were way too slow! Plus we tee'd off like 25 minutes late due to the big groups in front of us. If it wasn't for that, it would've been a better experience.

the secondary cut is NOT yet done lost couple of balls because the grass is too thick...when we played the greens are still showing aeration marks...but that's understandable because of green maintenance..

Played for the first time on a Sunday. Tee time at 8.23 am, delay for at least 20 minutes. They let all players go after the flight before was out of sight and not e. g. in 8 or 10 minute intervals, which is obvious that this will lead to delays and frustration on the course. On the first hole we got the balls from the flight behind us in the back already. On Tee 2 the flight ahead of us hadn't teed off and we were there already. The entire round took us almost 6 hours. Even for a Sunday not acceptable. Greens were in good shape, fairways ok, tee boxes just ok, some mowing of the grass would make them a little nicer. All in all not a bad course, but organisation wise there is surely quite a bit of room for improvement

Course was in good shape but play was a bit slow. Played North/South. South has some funky holes. Would have preferred to play the East but didn't get to chose. Will probably return.

Slowest round every, 6 hours. No marshal support and staff was fine with slow play, booking 7 min tee times. We walked off after 12 holes. Won’t go back and don’t recommend the course.
