Needs security? And Pushed our cart

I ran into clubhouse for our cart keys and was only allowed to get one key for our foursome due to kids running a cart into lake. I am a 43 yo Dr. which was on my prebooking also, it is not likely I fit the profile. We went on to have to push our cart up hills in the front nine and swapped it out for the back.

Not worth the money

The greens were in awful shape and for $57 I expected better, much better. The tee boxes were also uneven a lot which was annoying. As a scratch golfer, I expect to at least have that. The game is hard enough. Not sure if previous reviews were even real because there is no way the greens deteriorated to the extent I saw over a week. The staff was very nice which was a positive.

Value for the money

Nice course, somehow challenging but not too difficult as long as you stay out of the water.

Slow Play

pace of play was slow due to novices playing ahead and cart path only conditions. The greens were running fast and conditions were sloppy due to previous weather.

Lot of water

Moderate to difficult course. Lots of water to clean up your old golf balls. Good course will visit again.

Good Value

Overall the course was in good shape. The greens were a little slow and the fairways weren’t pristine but certainly playable. Played the back tees which made some holes play fairly long and made the course more challenging as a result. I played early afternoon on a Monday and basically had the course to myself. I think this course offers very good value for the money and is my go-to when I’m trying to get a quick round in.

Wet Day

Course was wet but in good shape. Felt the course Marshall pushed us a little more than we should have been, since the groups behind and in front of us were less than a foursome.

Ok Course

Not bad value if you can play on one of the hot deal tee times.

My only major complaint is that my group was skipped by two groups by the starter while we waited at the first tee box. Was told that "Oh this group always plays on Sunday at noon" and that "they play fast." I asked if we could go off on 10 and was told that they didn't want to people to feel like they were getting cut in front of. Well, ok, I know that feeling. Guess we're getting skipped. We waited on these guys on almost every shot for 12 holes.

Since players without scheduled tee times are obviously given a higher priority than my group with a scheduled time, I won't be back.

Ant piles everywhere

Paying $59 at this course is a rip off! You could get a better value at many other courses offered by GolfNow. Cart paths are bumpy and cracked, ant piles all over the place. Worse than the course is the high price to play, course prices should be $25 top price and less than that after 1pm. I won’t waste my money again...

Great Golf Course

Greatwood has some pretty challenging holes. While we played whites, it was difficult to say the least. Will definitely play again.

Value fair, course okay but customer service lacks

GolfNow value find. Committed a tee-time/$ online. Went to pay & price changed/added a fee for course water "something". Person at counter was not sure what to make of how things are charged or why. I was given money back for the course water thing & I stated I had a committed $charge over the internet but even the original quoted charges for green fee+tax was wrong. I let it go. Concession stand not open. Went to check in w/starter saw 15 men standing on the tee box 5 mins prior to our start time. Starter stated they all go off early every friday/had a standing tee-time for the 3-4 groups. He asked if I wanted to go off the back 9 & I said why don't they since we were up and they were definitely starting late eating for players and he said they would not, so I decided I wouldn't either. Most of the fairways were in terrible shape, spots of dirt, so uneven, bumpy. The greens needed still a lot of work, sandy, dry dirt spots and again bumpy as well. The tee boxes described in other review were tended to from what we saw. I'll save my money/go elsewhere. Mind the reviews, some are fairly accurate for this course. If I had paid the rate of $25 like some of the gentlemen that went off ahead of me I might have digested the $$ I paid and the time I took to come play a 4.5 round where residents/or members are serviced 1st.

Course is fairly short but requires accuracy. When in shape it is my favorite layout.

Wet weather causes problems in bunkers
