Not happy with Golf Now

Arrived at the course and was told that Kiley Ranch no longer accepts Golf Now. They honored our round but told me not to use it in the future. Course personal advised me that they had problems with Golf Now and would not be using it in the future which is disappointing as this was the best deal in the area. Course was great. You can knock out nine hole in a hour. Chance to work on nothing but your short irons and wedges.

A little sloppy

Hey guys we played the couse about 9:30am and it was wet more so than the 2 other times i played there.

Also they are not accepting the golf now reservations! It sounds like they are going to be seperating and you will only be able to make reservations on their website. so buyers be aware!

Great for beginner

Great course for the beginning golfer. Greens a bit shaggy but perfect for my son who is learning the game. I was able to get in some good wedge/iron work. Plus when you get it for Hot Deal $5 like I did you can't beat it.

Perfect weather

Course in good shape.

For so early in the year and as much rain as we have had the course was not sloppy or muddy. The greens were in good shape but speed was inconsistent. This was our first outing of the year and we had a good time.

Had a Great Time

I Love playing golf with my brothers, and even though it was HOT, we had a GREAT time. Had to wait for riding carts, but that was the only draw back. We did play 18 holes, went around twice. The staff was extremely nice.

No Bueno

This place is only good to work approach shots. The greens are not maintained so you don't get to practice putts you'll see playing an 18 hole course. The tee boxes are in rough shape and the path you have to walk on is 90% mud because you're playing on a natural wetland. Save your money and go hit a bucket of rang balls you'll get more out of it.

Close it

This is the second time I have played this course. It will be the last. The course was soaked, and for no reason. the entire course was in such poor shape, why water weeds. The sand traps were full of weeds, the greens were bumpy and so long you could not even putt. Either find someone who can turn it around or close it.

Dear Philneal We apologize for your bad experience here at, The Links. We do our best to make every players experience a good one. Unfortunately during your play, there had been a irrigation issue the week prior and all pumps had been off. Needing to get water back on the course once the problem was fixed, we had done some extra watering the night before your play. We appreciate your interest and would hope to see you again.

Great Value

I enjoyed my time at the Kiley Ranch course. It's a short executive course. You get what you pay for, and that is in no way an insult. It's maintained well enough. Great value for a quick round of golf. The 'pro shop' is lacking a little. There were no balls for sale at all, good thing I was able to find a couple range balls in the bottom of my bag. Other than that, the staff is extremely friendly and it's a fun outing.

Enjoyable Par 3 Course

Great place to tune up your irons. Greens were soft. Pace of play seemed slow still got 9 holes in in 1:35. Someone needs to get in the sand traps and clear the weeds (over 3 feet high in some).

Horrible

This is the worst course that I have played in my life!! When we arrived for our 9:27 tee time, the office workers were not there to check us in. We were able to start without them, but quickly realized that the course was as much of a joke as the workers. The traps have been taken over by weeds and the creek is a cesspool. There were bald spots and chunks taken out of the greens. We only paid $5 to play the round, but that was still too much. When we went inside at the end of the round, the kid behind the bar was having a personal phone call while too of his friends(presumably) sat at the bar. Horrible!!!

Dear Darren I am personally sorry for this bad experience you've had at The Links. It is very rare for staff to perform in this manner. We have had many great reviews about our employees and I'm assuming this was a bad day for whomever was on shift that day. We hope this experience can turn from a negative to a positive and that you please give us another try. Your business is important and we'd like to see you leave on a happy note. Thank you for your time. Management
