Wonderful course!

The course was in immaculate conditions and love the changes regarding the resizing of their bunkers! The greens were fast and smooth. Plan to play more often there.

Great Course

This course is in perfect condition right now. Staff was friendly. Played during the Covid 19 so the grill was not open they were only serving snacks. I wish they would have been taking orders to go but other than that it was great. New carts with GPS was a great addition and very helpful. They have them set very sensitive to out of bounds areas and you can not get anywhere close to the green.

Pace of play

Before our tee time a group of four went to the first tee. They had to wait for their fourth player as she showed up 10 minutes late. they didn’t offer to let our foursome play through so we just waited. On the course there were much slower players but no Marshall to get them to move along or allow the faster players to play through. A 4 hour and 45 minute round, waiting on every shot.
Suggest the course hire a Marshall to monitor the course of play.
John

Forest Hills

The range balls were over priced $7 for a small bucet. The range balls were filthy. You could only use the mat which didn’t allow for a lower tee height
