Not worth the money

One hole was shortened with fairway green (for no known reason). A few holes had 18 inches of leaves on green - why didn't they blow off these greens?). It took 4 1/2 hours for 13 holes. They should have been paying us to play the course. An overall miserable experience.

Airation!

Air rated and didn’t know in advance. San & holes make green not true. Also pin placement was terrible. Lots of false fronts. Ball rolled a lot!

Gone downhill

I’ve played this course a number of time, but in the year or so since my previous play through, it’s gone way downhill. The course layout has always been weird/not great, but now the conditions were bad too. My cart was falling apart, and eventually had to be replaced. Greens were shoddy and fairways were overrun by crab grass. They don’t seem to do the same fun tournament they had in the past either

Thank you for reviewing the course, jknowlton9. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve, and we are working towards getting things up to par. Thank you for playing Cattails Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Carts?

Like the layout and can score well here.Greens were in great shape but because poor pace on the back I would fix balls marks. Up to 10 on some greens. Senior League In front and no one repaired ball marks. Carts seem to be on last leg along with some of the landscaping but the course itself is worth playing.

Get the ball up!!! The Cattails are right there!!!!

This was my first time here and it is a very challenging course. The cattails are everywhere. Especially Hole #8. The white tees were right up against them and I lost 4 balls in it. There were other places I hit into them. Will know better for next time.
The complex itself is nice. The parking lot needs to be resurfaced. There is no direct way to get your cart over to your car at the end of the round. Took a bit to figure out the pattern.
I didn’t get any food but saw and smelled what other people were having and the portions were almost like going to a sports bar. Pretty hearty and looked delicious.
Other than my bad play, it definitely piqued my interest to try again with a better understanding of how to manage the course.
