Great, but carts are not worth 20 dlls.

Not sure if paying 20 dlls for a cart is a fair price, but overall a great course to play in.

Good solid track

I booked on golfnow which stated that cart is included but the guy in the proshop disagreed. I don't mind ponying up an extra 10 bucks but, make sure the golf now app and the course are speaking to each other. That kind of stuff is infuriating.
Course was a very fun layout with some open holes, some tight holes, and some very technically challenging holes. There are some water hazard that come into play. Bunkers were wet but well raked and well maintained. Tee boxes for the most part were pretty well kept. Greens were softer but rolled relatively fast. Pace of play was quick at ~4 hours.
It's just a good, solid, decent course. I'll go back sometime, I'm sure.

Decent amidst the pandemic

They have a fairly good check in process as other courses I’ve been to have shown. Course is in good shape and driving range and putting green open ahead of others.
My only con to mention is the very steep charge for cart rental. I feel as a disabled senior it’s an <extra> charge I’m not willing to pay($20). Makes the round a whopping $80, which I’d rather pay and play elsewhere.

COVID-19 Reopening

Greens excellent. Fairways best I have seen them. Rough in places too thick and long due to rain and course closure. No carts walking only. Great time and good pace of play got Sat 10:20 am reopening.

Good Round

Pleasantly surprised! It's been about 5 years since I last played this course and from what I recall the course conditions were better this go around. Also, considering the greens were recently punched and the time of year, I thought the course was in better shape than many other courses I regularly play. A few of the holes are setup for tricky Tee shots which made it interesting and made up for how short the course played overall and the greens rolled true. I found the staff to professional and all business, but I wouldn't necessarily categorize them as "friendly". Not really a bad thing, just wanted to point it out. Overall, I did enjoy the round and facilities and will definitely return.

Good value for money

Nice course, good layout. Greens are excellent and challenging. Tee boxes recently redone and look great. Fairways are wet and patchy- needs better drainage system!

ST. MARK GOLF COURSE

FIRST TIME EXPERIENCE WAS EXCELLENT!

ALTHOUGH THERE WAS A 40 MINUTE DELAY DUE TO FROST DELAY, THE COURSE WAS VERY WELL MAINTAINED AND VERY FORGIVING. PLAYING WITH ANOTHER LOCAL GOLFERS DID HELP IN LOCAL KNOWLEDGE . I WOULD PLAY THE COURSE AGAIN THE NEXT TIME WE ARE IN THE AREA.

course was very wet and full of tire ruts

Had no rain for about a week so why was the course so wet and unplayable? In the ruff full of tire tracks and mud, even on the course it had wet spots and tire tracks

Couple in front of us so slow we had to play ahead.....

We quit after 8 holes

Only in a drought

This was my second time playing this course and again it was swampy and cart path only. I know it rained last week but C’mon the fairways shouldn’t be literal swamps a week later.
I recommend they invest in better drainage. I’ll only play here again when we’re in a drought.

Great staff and amenities though.
