Regarding refund

Hello
I've not play golf on 3/12 due to heavy rain.
And I've got information from Navy Golf course that I should ask the refund to Golf now.
So, pls. let me know your opinion for refund.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience you experienced at the course. Our goal is to keep the pace of play running smoothly and to never have it too backed up. As far as the raincheck goes, sounds like you prepaid for a Hot Deal on GolfNow. When this is the case, no money is paid to the pro-shop so there is no money that is owed back from the course. You may have booked other course times through GolfNow and that is why you were able to obtain a raincheck. If you call GolfNow, they would be happy to rectify the situation. We hope this clears any confusion up and we hope you give us another try in the future.

Rain made it impossible to finish

Tee time was at 9:05, started sprinkling at 9:15 on second hole. Started pouring rain on fourth hole and could not continue. Was informed that there are “no rain checks” once you tee off. Not even a discount on next round. When I was paying for my tee time the clerk was finishing a phone call saying the rain shouldn’t arrive until noon to the guy on the phone. I took him at his word. Love this course, but can’t feel anything but disgust for the way we were treated today. Fifty + bucks for four holes, yeah lesson learned.

Pace is too slow

I been slowing moving on from this course. I liked it when I started to play golf a year ago but I think I appreciate better pace course and much nicer time even if I have to pay more at Oak Quarry or Eagle Glen. Its an ok course for the area but it had become a boring course and time to move on. I got a cart to myself and then suddenly a random single appeared. Haha. He was very ackward. Good luck golfers. You will beed to to be patient with the horrid pace. Waste of my time and money. Lol

Best Bang for your Buck

My friends had been telling me about this "Navy" course for a while and I finally had a chance to play it. I saw an amazing deal to play for $22 and had to jump on it.

Was the best $22 ever spent for golf. Amazing greens for a public course. Long and challenging off the tee box but still scorable.

I highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a good test of golf from the Blue Tee Box in the Long Beach / LA area!

Challenging but very enjoyable

This course has many water hazards and greens have ups and downs. This makes it quite challenging for me but the course is maintained very well so it was still fun even after losing four balls! I will be back!!

Pace and conditions of course is bad

This course keeps going downhill with the mixed walkers and ladies and men all playing from different tees and still group together adds up to a horrid pace. Customer service really lacking these days. I prefer Eagle Glen and Soboba now. Less playing here for sure. Good luck golfers!

First time to play at Navy Destroyer

It was a challenging course for me but I had lots of fun!
The course was maintained very well compared to other courses nearby. In general this course is not cheap but I had a great deal. I love to go back and play!
