A lack of expected customer service
Found the course and booked through Golfnow. Due to impending rain called to see if we (2 players) could get out early. Was told due to the nature of our discounted booking we couldn't-fair enough
We arrive and checked in -was basically given a receipt and told we were" all set" by the guy in the pro shop. No "welcome to the course" , ""if you want to use the range/the range is here/the first tee is there, by the way there is no starter", ... (had to ask the cart girl who told us we had to return to the golf shop for range tokens which my buddy did)
My friend asks him about the impending weather and gets a simple "I don't know" as a reply
We are typically private course golfers
Course conditions and layout were good. Not likely to return. Better experience at similarly priced courses
I like the course layout and conditions. challenging golf and some fun holes.
Beautiful course! A challenge to be sure but worth the effort. Great staff and pace first thing in the morning.
Challenging course, greens were fast small and contoured. I will be back to get my revenge soon...next week if golf now has the same great deal:)
Beautiful course. Very slow play.
We took 5 hours to play this course because we had to wait for EVERY SHOT. Not once did we see a marshal come around to speed things up. To look at, the course is beautiful and laid out well. But the fairways and the greens were cut too high. Even downhill there was very little roll.
The course layout was great!
Everyone at CT National was great. From the pro shop to the restaurant, all were very accommodating!
No rangers to monitor the ridiculously slow pace of play. The back nine took 2.5 hours and would have been 3 had it not been for the slow group leaving due to rain
I drove about 1hour and 30 minutes but it was worth it. Great condition and great views all around.
Even with all the rain the course was in playable shape. Can’t wait to get back there in dryer conditions.
Greens were great. Few mud spots on fairways from all the rain. Should dry up nicely if the sun returns!
Played on a cool and brisk but sunny Sunday morning. Staff called in the morning to let me know it would be walking only due to wet conditions (expected this) but still good to get a call. Course was wet but in generally very good condition - fairways in great shape, greens very playable. Very nice layout. Will certainly play again.
Carts were not available due to wet conditions. This information was not made available at the time of booking. IT NEEDED TO BE. Was not an issue for us as we were able to walk the course. However, the twosome in front of us could not walk and left the course very dissatisfied.
Best time of year to play the best course in the area! Due to heavy rain the day before, I was notified by the course that it would be carts only. I really appreciated the heads up. It's a long course with enough hills to make you wonder about walking it but we did and it really isn't that bad to walk. The course is in Excellent condition. They have a beautiful bar/restaurant that was unfortunately closed which I thought was odd and was very disappointed because the food is awesome. It was very cold when we tee'd off at 1230 with a lot of wind so i'm assuming that went into their decision to not open it - not that many players on the course. Call before you go to check status of restaurant so you don't starve like we did. I highly recommend this course for golfers that want a challenge and demand perfection in the way of fairways and greens.
CT Nat is excellent
Fairways were wet and muddy in spots, but better than just about everyone else I have played in the last month (it has rained a ton lately). Greens were excellent, great pace, conditions were excellent. I love the layout, you have to think about every tee shot due to traps, doglegs, or hazards. Range was closed due to rain, but short game area is open. Can't way to go back.
Filling a need to a golf starved area
CTN is in a area that basically has no other golf courses. One approach would be to offer basic golf at high prices. I am happy to report neither is the case here. From the tips it stretches out to almost 7000 yds providing low handicappers with all they can handle. This is a true woodsland mountain course but without the choked off fairways. They give you reasonable width in the fairways. The green complexes are interesting and sloped and pretty fast. You definitely need a couple of rounds to know where you need to play to. The routing was enjoyable. My criticisms are pace of play (5 1/2 hours) and beat up greens. If you are in the area it is a place you should play at least once.
Never a bad day at this course
I played on a Friday afternoon after days of rain. I just played Raceway the previous day and the ground was soaked so I had many plugged balls. They were a few wet spots here but overall the course was in amazing shape. The greens were good. I’ve never had a bad round of golf at this course and I’ve played numerous times. Two thumbs up to the grounds crew and the people that run this place
