Fun time

Me and my buddies golf 9 holes ones a week during the week. We bounce from a few course but you can’t beat Sylvan at all. It’s a nice course and kept up well. Even being the fall the course is still playing well and nice. The leaves are cleaned up well also. Would recommend and play again. Also you can’t beat $20 for a cart and 9 holes during the week.

Very slow

It was very well maintained the only problems were they only had one set of tees out, the tee boxes need some time to heal, and they need to stop having so many tee times. The majority of the time is spent waiting on one sometimes two groups to hit before you can continue

Tee Boxes need work

The only thing I had an issue was the tee boxes were a lot tore up and needed some work or needed to be moved so those areas could be worked on.

Terrible customer service for people how pay through Golfnow

I live this course, I play almost every week here but today the customer service sucks.

Dan was in the pro shop and I ask for one extra golfer (already pay for one through golf now) and he was “I need your last name this is what we got, we can’t add more players this is pre pay you need to call and they refund you” that never happens to me here they are usually very friendly, anyway I just move on and go to other course.

Miserable experience.

Did not finish a round that started at 3 pm Due to darkness. 3-1/2 hours for 9 holes. 15 minute wait on every tee box. Felt like I was ripped off. Tried to get a rain check or half my greens fees back after the first 9 holes but was told the manager was gone for the day and no one else can do that. Plus. Not a ranger in site the whole day to push things along. Best entertainment of the day was sitting 4 groups deep on the third tee and watching the 5th group on the second green get hit into By the 6th and a near fistfight ensuing. Miserable experience

Nice Track!

We were pleasantly surprised with this golf course in Troy! Nice fairways and greens, and the tee boxes just looked like there was a lot of wear and tear on them, but still satisfactory. The pace of play was slow, but that is no fault of the golf course. Our 8-some had a wonderful, fun afternoon!
