Better than most
Rattlewood has managed to keep the course in better condition than most of the others i have played in the area. The complimentary lunch is a big hit.
Green For As Far as They Eye Can See!
I play this course several times a season, and today was my first for 2019. I was surprised and extremely pleased to see the course. It's in excellent condition! The tee boxes, fairways and rough are all green and lush. The greens are in excellent condition and running pretty fast. Even the bunkers were in good shape, although the sand was a tad heavy, which could be a result of the overnight rain we had. However, the course was pretty dry--no water in any bunkers, and the fairways were amazingly dry. The only pooling was in low areas bordering the cart path or natural low areas. It was cart path only, but really didn't need to be--they were being cautious. The staff are always friendly, and the course was packed. It took us a little over 4.5 hours on a Saturday and it was extremely windy--gusts of 25 mph. Rattlewood is a great course to test the rust on your game from over the Winter...wide open and you can typically find any errant shots. Great course!
Course burnt out
The only saving feature were the greens were in good shape. Pace of play was horrible. 5 hours on a Friday is ridiculous. Pitcher of beer in the clubhouse was $19.90 . Come on man you must b kidding. Won' t b back if I can avoid it.
There hasn't been any real rain in over a month, so some fairways were dried out, but the greens were great all the way through the round. Pace was good (normal) for a weekday afternoon. I had not played the course in a while, but this round will get me back more often.
Great Course, great staff, Best value for money
Wonderful outing! Shot 86, should have come in around 82. Hole 3 - Par 5 has been moved back to the tips (adding an additional 60 yards) make it a very challenging hole. Staff is outstanding. Mistakenly booked Wednesday on Golf Now for Wednesday afternoon play but actually booked for Thursday and the staff & Mr. Jo -Jo handled the mix up like a true professional. Got my group out with out any problems. Five (5) ******
Great course. Staff is extra friendly. Rounds always under 4 hrs
Nice course, friendly people
To be fair, pace of play was only an issue on holes 12-15 this day and really didn't bother us all that much. A course marshal was on the scene throughout and kept traffic moving along as well as can be expected on a Sunday afternoon. Fun place to play, good course conditions, only slightly more challenging from the blue tees. Based on value for the money; One of my favorite courses.
Staff cares about money over service
Decent valued course. Fairly open. Greens don't break as much as you think.
TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!!!
Really enjoyed the round. It has quite a bit of water and blind holes but its open enough that you dont get into to much trouble on bad shots.
great draining course, interesting elevation changes
I like mountain courses, and while this isn't extremely hilly, there are enough changes in elevation to make you think about club choices carefully. This is a course that beginners will enjoy, and not lose too many balls, while being a challenge to shoot a good score. In general, the holes are relatively short and you will get to hit a medium to short iron a lot. Reachable par 5's, and reasonable par 3 distances make it fair for the average hitter. The greens were at a medium speed when I played but it was right after a huge amount of rain. Nevertheless, the carts were only required to do the 90 degree rule and the course was not soggy at all. Excellent place yo remember after a lot of rain.
Great running greens!!!
Good value and great staff! The greens looked like they were 'punched' recently, but they were running fast and pretty true!
Good Course Fast Greens
The course is in good condition. However, the greens were lighting fast and aerated.
The entrance to the course needs to be better defined. It's a bit confusing.
The parking is ok. Club house needs to be refurbished.
The course is in a reasonable condition. The course of play was not really been monitored properly. A big sign should be posted so people need to keep either the pace or the group in front.
This last item has been a problem on all the courses in the area.
Interesting elevation changes
Course was in better shape than expected. Fairways drain well. Rough is not horrible. With a few exceptions, you can make a mistake without it killing you. Sometimes you are shooting blind unless you ride ahead to check out green locations. Very pretty course
Great Course, great staff
The staff was very friendly and the food was good and drinks were cold. Course was in really good shape. Greens were fast
Buatiful course big problem with payment
I had a reservation thru golf now for 33 dollars a plyaer when I went to course they did not honer golf now prices even thou i had confirmation printed out they told me golf now cannot dictate rattlewoods prices it cost me an extra 13 dollars a player
So Be Careful with this course they dont abide by golf now pricing
EXTREMELY UPSET !!!!!
I would have called a few other places nearby and walked away if I could have found something else. If they were not willing to honor a printed reservation from Golfnow, they would have watched the extra $52, plus $132 I agreed to pay walk away. I would have had the person at the counter sign the printout in the event they tried to get money from my card too. I only played there once, but if they would have tried this on me, it would have been nonce. Too many other good courses within 20 minutes to be treated that way.
Ok for almost spring
For just having finished an awful winter the course itself was in decent shape. Pro shop, practice facility (such as it is) remains poor. Won't talk about bar, dining... Not open and still being rennovated? Paint can on the bar.
Cool, well maybe even cold and breezy round, but a very nice course.
Temps hovered right about 50 with a medium breeze to make it feel even a bit cooler. I have read a number of negative reviews of Rattlewood, but to be perfectly honest I did not see much wrong at all, greens were fast, firm, true. They also insured you paid plenty of attention any time you were above the hole. My playing partner did not mention any issues with her teeing areas, but I did notice a few were a little uneven. Fairways were in very good shape and the rough was, well he rough, tough even to be penalizing without being totally demoralizing. Staff was terrific, the group in front of us was a little slow, but we still played in 4 hours. Maybe not as scenic as Little Bennett, but not by that much and all in all a much more fair golf course. Little Bennett has way too many blind shots, not saying I will not give that L.B. another go someday.
This is my 6th time playing here and it's still a good course to play. All hike are pretty straight forward and no big surprises.
