Attended this course with a ‘Hot Deal’ and purchased online through the GolfNow app. The deal itself would’ve been excellent had I actually received what I paid for.

We walked into the pro shop well in advance of our t-off and were advised by staff that due to an event, there were no power carts available and we had to walk the course. If you’ve ever played the Executive course at Newlands, the walk is significant just to get to your first t-off. I pleaded with staff inside the pro shop as there were extra power carts unused within eyes view from the pro shop. Staff said that they were unable to accommodate and when I told them it was included with my purchase, they told me, “That’s what you get when you purchase from GolfNow.” Needless to say, they were not happy that I booked through GolfNow and for that reason, did not care about my group.

The course itself was good, the greens are extremely slow. The saving grace of the round was the sun shining throughout the round.

There was a large event going on, thus no power cart. It’s unfortunate that GolfNow allowed customers to book without no notice as large events affect the quality of experience. I would not have booked/paid to play that day had I known we would not be getting a power cart. My only advice is to call the course ahead of time to ensure you’re able to get what you paid for using the GolfNow app.

Played in the rain and aside from a few puddles the course was playable. Nice layout, great price and a good course for practice at the start of the year. A experienced golfer would be happier on the adjacent full sized course but 11 holes is perfect for me time wise!

Played with my wife who hadn't golfed for 8 years, my son and his girlfriend. Was her first time golfing ever.<br/> We had a great time. The deal we booked was with carts but is an easy walk 11 hole course.<br/> Some tiny greens and a couple of the Par 4's are a good challenging Par 3 for better golfers.<br/> Hole 11 is a 185 yard par 4 sounds like an easy 3 but there is about a 10 yard opening between tall trees 30 yards in front of the green and a green that is a postage stamp. This hole is a good test for mostl golfers.

For what this course is, its a nice to having a relaxing practice type game.

Great for bringing beginners as well to teach not only the game but etiquette as well.

For what it is enjoy it and practice your game for the full courses when it counts.

Played the 11-hole executive course. Was a nice quick pace with carts and green fairways and greens were clean and green too. Course took a second to understand where the next hole was and found that the next tee box was in the danger zone of a ball off flight.
