Slow Play

Usually no problems at this course. Pro shop attendant, a young gentleman had 2 foursome of elderly ladies tee off after each other. Was not allowed to start on back 9 but had to follow these two groups through 9 holes. Took 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes with 2-3 groups waiting to tee off on every hole. Even though I paid for 18 holes, I didn’t have time or patience for another 2 1/2 hour back nine.

Bad circumstances

At the club house i was told they had a big outting that afternoon and that the grounds crew would be out there. Even tho they were working on the course still when i tee'd off on my early round, they were very considerate of not holding me up and were all around great at not being an inconvenience to me. The staff were very friendly as i played through them working on multiple holes. Thanks for the fun round!

I ENJOYED IT

I enjoyed playing here and I will return. The back 9 was flooded so I didnt get a chance to experience it, but the 9 holes we did play were fun.

Parking lot

Brown grass, dry cracked ground, and weeds. Save your money and just go hit a ball around a parking lot.

Two flat tires...poorly kept.

Our cart got 2 flat tires along the course, the ground was hard as a rock, not many patches of grass. Overall a very poor course.

Decent greens bad fairways

$30 for 18 holes is to much for this course. The greens are decent but the fairways are in bad condition. The front 9 feels like they are all on top of eachother. 950 am tee time and there sprinklers are on and there also cutting the grass. I feel like that should be done earlier or later evening.

Fernhill

The course was in good shape and the pace was amazing. I went early because it was a very hot day. I was able to complete 18 holes in less than 3 hours. It was a great practice round.

Poorly RUn Golf Course

I made an early T time of 730 AM on purpose. Fern Hill overbooked the time. It looked like a league was playing at 730AM. I asked to start on the back nine and they said it was closed for maintenance.

Poorly run facility. Don't play there unless you have 10 hours to kill.
