Nice tree lined course. It may not be long, but it’s tight. Fast greens. A course I’d play again when it’s a hot deal.
5.5 hour round...woof!
Cart path only after heavy rains day before, understandable. A threesome of elderly women 2 groups ahead of us led to an almost 6 hour round which made for an unbearably long back 9.
Ranger was aware of the situation but did nothing about it. If I would’ve paid $80 for this round I would’ve been furious, got a deal on golfnow for half off so I can’t really complain too much.
Staff was great. Course was beautiful. Would be hesitant to return after the marathon today.
Play at your own risk
I have not played the course but know this— protective netting that leads to a major thoroughfare and residences are in disrepair with gaping holes. If you hit the ball through and it hits a car or a person you, the golfer are responsible for law suits. Know this now. There are a dozen courses in the area- choose another.
From start to finish experience was awesome. Starters greeting was very professional. I felt as if I was at a private country club. Course was difficult greens challenging but doable and fun.
Needed an early tee time. This course fit the bill
Course was in excellent condition even though there had been heavy rains the day before. Layout of the course was perfect for beginner and intermediate golf players. Would play there again.
Great experience and will be back....
Everyone from the starter to staff was outstanding and so very Nice-thank you! I played this course years ago when it was a Marriott resort and forgot about all the rolling hills. It was a great pace of play and hard to get it through the thicker grass, but understand with all the past rain we have had. It was an awesome golf experience and look forward to coming back soon! Thank you!
Average course, above average care, slow play
TLDR: A nice course, nothing terribly special, really well kept by the grounds crew, apparently attracts the slowest players in the world and there were no rangers to tell people to move along.
The last time I played this course was about 16 years ago so it was nice to revisit. That being said, the weather turned out to be 50 degrees and drizzled on and off all round. The course was in really good shape considering the amount of rain we have received over the last few weeks, so kudos to the grounds crew. The staff were all really friendly and attentive. This is technically a Hilton resort course so I don’t know if that has anything to do with the clientele but my goodness were there some slow people out there. We were stacked up behind 5 foursomes of people who were hacking it all over the hole from tee to green and then taking 10+ minutes to putt out. It was most frustrating because there were no rangers to enforce any pace of play rules. I don’t think I will be going back anytime soon because the course is just average in terms of layout and difficulty but really well maintained. The price is a little much for what it is.
Stop th Insanity
We unfortunately we’re placed behind a regular drop of players that were ridiculous slow. They had a :45 minute head start and we caught them on hole 6. Last 3 holes took over an hour. We stopped playing after 9 holes due to no rangers passing this group to pick up pace of play. Course was nice enough to refund our money, but please make sure in the future this regular group speeds up there play. It was ridiculous how slow they played. I will not go back on a Saturday morning round.
Awesome track and very reasonably priced for quality of the course.
Overall the course is excellent! the staff is professional. The condition is good, and the course layout is challenging. Very fun to play this course and highly recommend this to golfing lovers.
Really enjoyed this course. It was in good shape and a lot of fun to play.
Still do not recommend
Read my review of 8/25/17. You'll thank me for that. The only reason I played here was because one of my golfing buddies had a certificate that his wife bought him for X-mas. The closest 18 hole course to my house and I avoid it like the plague. Greens were micro aerated but still rolling nicely with excellent speed.. Course has a plethora of sand traps (many forced carries over them) and it's a complete crap shoot of what you'll get. For a course that charges $75 on a weekday the sand conditions are completely unacceptable. Lucky it hasn't rained in a while (this place was a swamp before it was built and when after a decent rain it's a slog). Today the front aprons of several greens were swamps (the super over waters beyond belief) so your ball roll out is inconsistent. Beverage prices are ridiculous as well. Pace of play is always an issue here. Our back nine slowed to a crawl. Place is overrun with ladies in full regalia who tee off in the morning and routinely take 5.5 hours shooting well over 100. Watch out in the parking lot almost got hit by a clueless broad in her 100K Lexus. Save yourself your trouble....avoid this place....you can play twice somewhere else for what they charge here and have much better experience.
Willow Crest Golf Club - A fine course
The overall conditions were excellent. The only thing missing was fluffy sand in the traps as they looked pretty but needed sand to get under the ball. Fairways were in great shape and so were the greens. The check in was easy as all I did was show up to the cart area and the starter had my name and tee time and we teed off within about 10 minutes and on time. They were some challenging pin placements today and you needed to be a good marksman to be around the tees making you focus.
