<y biggest issue is that the time I booked on Golf Now was not the time they had me down for an I waited 30 minutes past my requested time.

The Wetland course can be a VERY nice day out. It's a pretty course, well maintained and fun to play. But DON"T go out there on a weekend morning or early afternoon or any other day you might expect a large number of golfers. The typical golfer there is going to move very slow and the rangers don't do much to move play along. Too bad because it can ruin a very nice day of golf at a nice course.

The course is in very good shape for the time of year it is. I play a lot of winter golf and have played this course before in winter conditions . This year this course is in the best shape I have ever seen it. I have played here for the last four weeks and it has been great (bunkers can use some work) I even got into my buddy's pocket a few times.

$17.95 plus 3.95 fee to play a great course. Still had wind damage all around course with a few blown over trees but that is understandable after the 3rd Nor'easter in 3 weeks. Signed in and Starter was immediately asking me if everyone was there- we could get out earlier than the scheduled time- awesome service! Snack bar attendant was great- very accommodating as was the whole staff. Nice to see!

Great time, good round.

Played on a Sun after late Sat night and Sun morning rain. Course was in great shape, some standing water in traps but otherwise drained very well. Greens and fairways were in excellent condition. Tee boxes could be in better shape.

Friendly attentive staff, clubhouse was busy @ the turn but everyone was working hard.

Thank you

Had a very enjoyable afternoon at an above average course. Overall, i would give a thumbs up for the course conditions, and it was a good round/experience. The hot deal price I paid was very reasonable; but, I've noticed the green fees have increased significantly this year. If there is one complaint, they should revisit their green fees. I would probably play the course more, but I've found many other courses that are closer for me, more affordable, or nicer. However, I did notice that they made several small improvements to the course, so at least they are investing money back into the course.

Played in a charity scramble, first time on course. Surprising nice layout. Almost got beaned twice on the holes that run parallel. No one yelled 4.

Carts are old.. no windshield, no bag cover if it rains. No GPS.

Range was grass. Balls have seen better days. Fairways are generous but 3 times I hit them and ball rolled into rough. Gotta know which side to play too. Would love to play my own ball around this track.

Things were going great until a 5-some held up the twosome in front of us and of course my group. There were marshalls around all day but I guess they must've known the 5 guys and allowed it? Pace of play is usually horrible on weekends here anyway, so I thought a Monday afternoon would be fine. Nope.

Usually play in Philly but a friend and I meet here to play occasionally. Great time as usual. The owner is a great guy and all of the staff are extremely friendly. Course in great shape for this time of year and really appreciate that they don't just jam the course with as many people as possible and keep things moving. The layout is challenging but not overly impossible to shoot a good score.

The staff members at this course might be the reason that I never golf here again. The course was completely empty, and the staff members in the clubhouse would not let me wait 10-15 minutes to play with a friend who was on their way. They were quite rude in their denial of this request. Additionally, they would not let our foursome leave until 1pm exactly despite us being ready to go at 12:55. If the course were crowded, I would understand, but this place was empty.

Price is always good, staff is always friendly. Course had some wet spots from a lot of rain from a dew Days before but that's to be expected; after all it's called "wetlands." It's a fair course with challenging holes that makes you think re-think your approach. I will continue to play here from time to time.

Overall I would say the conditions were the best thing about the course. The layout including cart paths are odd. There were some nice holes on the course and very playable thanks to the fairways and greens(somewhat spongy but rolling nice). There were too many oddly shaped greens, which I guess was supposed make the approach shots difficult, but it was rather annoying. The staff seemed insulted that I booked through golfnow. I still don't understand this attitude at some courses.
