Play somewhere else

Pace of play was terribly slow. Got to the turn and apparently the start let a group that had a rain check start before us making for a 3.5 hour 9 holes. Starter was also not a very nice human. Save your money and go play somewhere else.

Last year course was in Great shape and this year the greens need some attention due to heat conditions. Still a good value.

Not well-maintained

This review is based only on the first six holes as we were rained out. I’ve never seen so much clover on a golf course. One should not be obligated to play a colored ball simply because the rough is virtually all white. Numerous dead trees and downed branches (not recent). Multiple sand traps without a rake. Holes hadn’t been moved in days and replaced holes were dead and obvious on the greens. Rarely does one see three holes (one current and two previous readily visible within a 5 foot radius. There just isn’t much love put into this course. On a Sunday afternoon there was one staff member in the clubhouse to handle all food, drink, and check-in.

The course was in good shape, we booked a tee time around 3pm. It was busy like most courses during the weekend. The pace was slow took about 3 hours for the front 9 but the pace picked up in the back! Next time I book I’ll book earlier, the bugs started getting irritating around 7pm

Better Management Needed

The course had always been a favorite of mine until recently. After a couple of times of booking a tee time through GolfNow, just to arrive to the course and learn about a tournament that’s going on, and that my tee time might be delayed, will upset any avid golfer. Not only were we rushed to hit the course when we did get an opening, but pace of play so extremely slow (5.5 hour round) and they allowed a bunch of kids to drive carts around and they continuously drove while trying to tee off, at times slamming on the brakes to cause a screeching noise. It was unprofessional and definitely not worth returning. I used to defend the course after fellow golf buddies spoke ill of Fox Run, until I finally got to see what all the fuss was about. If you’re just out to hang out and have a beer or two with friends, go for it. If you’re serious about your game, don’t.
