Terrible managment closed with no forwarning due to rain however it was not raining

Had a 1 pm tee time booked at the course only to show up to a locked parking lot and the owner sleeping inside. The owner claimed the course was closed due to rain however it was preferctly clear overcast all day long. The owner refused to give a refund or rain check because we booked through golf now and lied to golf now about being open even though we were turned away. Apparenlty they dont enjoy making money.

Please fix the greens

For 10$ hotdeal (golf now) you cant really complain, but the greens were absolutely unacceptable, most were ok but some you cant even call a green. The gentleman at the window was s amazing. Its a perfect course to practice and and play,l.

Disappointing. Only 8 carts available for the day! All booked as well. Didnt have any info on my booking via the app. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were horrendous! Highly unlikely to rebook here unless some serious investment by the owners to make it playable!

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. We would like to apologize for the lack of carts 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. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to receive a cart during their round. Please know that we will continue to look for ways to improve and will use your comments as guidance. For further resolution in this matter, please feel free to reach out to our staff in the pro shop. Thank you for playing Water Park Golf Club. We hope to hear from you soon.

Course said they lost our reservation through golf now

They made us pay twice for our round. Once through golf now and once when we were there. I’m still trying to get refunded on one of he payments.

Needs mowing

As much as my head needs mowing so does the course. Very difficult to find your ball in the fairway or rough. A lot of standing water so that may have been a contributing factor but there wasn’t that much recent rain.
Found several balls in the fairway & rough so I couldn’t have been just me.

Terrible

I booked a tee time for 1:00 and arrived at 12:55 I walked into the pro shop and while I was walking in the owner walked at and I waited inside for 15 minutes until I asked if someone was working. They owner never asked for confirmation he just told me to go when a group was on the tee box already. There were multiple 5 sums and a 6 sum I saw during my round. There Porta potty was not clean and could smell it from every whole. The course wasn’t the best but for the price it was more than I expected. Overall I will not be going back but if I was to go back it would be because of the good price.

Unsatisfied

For the second time this year we booked on golf now and the round included cart. Today we went there and even though we had a tee time with a cart the owner stated “no cart” as he had a tournament starting. He said it wasn’t his problem and we had to deal with Golf Now. Given a hard time both times we have gone even with proof of cart purchase. Rude and not willing to work with anything.

great for the average golfer

Come for improving your game and you won't be disappointed. Great price, good pace , and long fairways make it special. The "clubhouse" is not what this place is about.

Big bang for buck

If you just want to practice your common shots, this is it. I could have given it 4 stars but it was so muddy in the fairway. It needs a lot of drainage. Greens are ok.
