Review

Everytime I play shanty bay it’s the same issues. Pace of play. For a course with 3 separates 9s there should be no issues! Maybe it’s over booking?? Previously it’s taken me 4.5 hours to play 18 on a Sunday, and I couldn’t even finish my round on Friday because after 2.5 hours I only competed 11 holes. Very frustrating because the course and the staff aren’t great, but they just can’t figure out how to keep things moving!

Hello,thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve by using your comment as guidance. We are glad to see you rated the course conditions and layout to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Shanty Bay Golf and Country Club - Frontier. We hope to see you again soon.

Not a bad course but....

This course was fairly decent. Well taken care of. Greens on one of the 9 hole courses were fast. On another, slow. No overly challenging holes. All seemed pretty much straight, with a few exceptions. Staff were ok. Cart girl was friendly. The one time she came around....
Bar staff were extremely friendly and very efficient. Marshals were great. Now the admin staff... that's were the service lacked. One of my colleagues called in when we were on our 2nd half of golf to find out where the cart girl was at. We were 4 holes in at this point. The young woman who answered the phone, seemed bothered by our call and disinterested in helping us see if we could get the cart girl to do a round through the course we were on. She told my colleague that she would let her know then just hung up. Alas no cart girl showed up and we stopped purchasing drinks for our final 9 holes.
So if you golf this course, buy more than 2 rounds of drinks at the start of each half. Over all though, we had a great time.

Shanty Bay is a great value

Shanty Bay is a wonderful course at a very good price. It offers a reasonably challenging layout with tough greens. Excellent condition. Staff are always friendly--just a nice, relaxed atmosphere and a small town club feel with no attitude.

Quick pace with average conditions.

Well worth the price of admission as we got a good rate off of Golfnow.com. Food at the turn was good and fair priced. Beers on the course were also a decent price at $6/tall boy. Fairways were below average with lots of brown spots and dead grass. Greens were in good shape I just thought it was quite different to have sprinkler head in the middle of the green and having the possibility of putting over them. Overall was worth the price and played at a fast pace taking about 3.5 hours for a 3some with a 20 min rain delay.
