First time I made my way out to Peacock and I must say it was my favorite course of all year. I will be back for sure. Range is nice of the grass, golf carts are nice with the built in gps and makes it easy to order food or drinks. The course it's self was well maintained and a little challenging. You have to try it if you haven't already

This was one of the worst days a of golf I’ve ever had at this course. They had a tournament earlier and then booked too many tee times. It took 5.5 hours to play. Unacceptable!

The ciourse was in pretty good shape, except for some of the sand traps, most of which did not have deep enough sand or were gritty and/or crusty. The greens were aerated and sanded a few weeks ago, so are now pretty smooth if a ittle slow. I assume that some of the rough with exceptionally long grass next to the fairway will be mowed when the ground dries out a bit more.

"Maintenance lacking"

One of my favorite courses in the area. However, maintenance was not evident. Fairways were not mowed on most of the holes, and the rough was like the U.S Open. With that said, the greens were in great shape. Most sand traps were unplayable. Will be back though.

The grass in general is too long. The fairways are pretty tall at the moment. I imagine that the recent rain has had it growing like crazy.

Also the tough out of bounds is very difficult to find balls in. Hopefully things shape up a little bit.

Driving range is grass, huge perk! Clubhouse is very nice as well. The course itself is okay, it had rained the day before and this course does not drain particularly well. Pace of play was great though there are some challenging holes. Biggest complaint - They have white flowers everywhere that make it impossible to find balls. You can sometimes hit it straight and it will take awhile to find your ball. Definitely need to get the mower out.

I really do like Peacock. It's just not a very good value. 84 bucks with cart during prime time is really quite expensive. Do they throw in a warmup bucket? Nope.

It's been raining a lot, so I know the weather and conditions are out their control. However, when we paid on the Sunday, two thirds of the bunkers were ponds/pools. I've never seen anything like it. We're talking about 2 feet of standing water. Hit the ball in the middle and it wasn't reachable by rake or club to get it out.

This is the type of thing that aggravates me about this course. I pay almost 100 bucks to play and no one can be bothered to get up early with some sump pumps. They didn't even warn us at the pro shop.

You guys owe me a sleeve of balls.

Madison with the drink cart and the older Marshal are the most outgoing employees there and I appreciate them.

Would it kill the pro shop to give you a couple tees or 10 warmup balls for 84 bucks?

Could not believe how the course could allow one group of 6 players (two in carts, 4 walking) to hold everyone up and make the pace of play unbearable, today. C'mon, where are the marshall's when you need them. Where is the consideration of other players who are trying to get their round in at another time.

Had a great time on a late November day with golf buddy. Pace was great first nine and then the foursomes in front seemed to be in no hurry to keep up pace. A marshal would always be a help but did not see any results of their presence.

The course is improving and they have the best green range in county.
