Slow play!

A warm and informative welcome from the reception staff was an encouraging start and the first 5 holes passed without incident. We and the pair in front then ran into a mixed four ball who exhibited the worst display of slow play for the rest of the round. Potentially this was a club match with no hint of letting others through there is never any excuse for slow play. They were either oblivious or did not care. Our round ended up taking over 4.5hrs for a 2 ball and ruined any chance of getting any consistency going. What ever happened to course marshals to keep up the pace of play?!
The course itself is fine with some interesting holes although £45 is too much when compared to its peers. A tee off after 3pm would have been £35 which is about right for the standard of the course and we probably would have finished at the same time!
