Keep it straight !

This is my second time playing this course and first time this year. I enjoy playing this course and you will too if you like a challenge. This is a course where club selection and accuracy is very important. The greens offer their own challenges with up and down hill putts sometimes both on the same green.

A slow Saturday afternoon

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, course was packed one tee-time after another, so the pace of play was very slow, our 250pm tee-time ended up as a 5hr 15min total time.
The front 9 was very wet after 2 nights of large rain storms, so absolutely no roll at all, the back was a little dryer. Hope it dries up.

Decent course - overpriced

The course was in decent shape for just opening this year. Some challenging and creative holes out there. A bit overpriced though for the condition of the course and having to walk without pull carts available.

Value for the money

Cattails offers a well designed course with challenging holes, especially on the back nine, that makes for a round of golf well worth your time. The conditions on the course left a lot to be desired, even for Spring play. I’ve played this course for many years now and it’s sad to see the condition of the course seemingly get worse every year.

Cattails reviw 10/24/19

Course is in good condition. The greens were aerated and sanding couple weeks ago and are quick.

Be aware the gas utility company is planning to do some digging around the course in the next couple of weeks.

Lots of Cattails

this course is aptly named Cattails as you run into them on virtually every hole. that being said it is a very nice course with not a lot of obstacles. this was my first time playing the pace was great me and my buddy were able to finish in 3 and 1/2 hours for 18 holes. drove 50 minutes to get to this course and it was definitely worth the time.

Nice course for the price - $39-42
Undulating greens with some tough pin placements.
Pace of play was around 4.5 hours. But was also 2nd 18 if the day from 4 golfers who all shot around 100.
Plenty of stops were made by the cart girl but would have loved to have seen watering stations somewhere on the course

Way too many quirky holes

Conditions of this course are well above average, and the employees are friendly, but there is just too much quirkiness to a number holes out here that would encourage me to play it again.

Local gem

Great course layout that requires thoughtful
ball placement throughout.
Played from the blue tee and enjoyed very much.
Highly recommended. Back 9 was a little congested and took 2.5 hours, but the front 9 took only 1.5 hours so overall only took 4 hours to play 18 holes. Used GolfNow app for Sunday early afternoon tee time and was very happy with the green fee.

Needs a refresh

Built 30 years ago and no updates to facilities or grounds.
Junky carts, crumbling cart paths with no markings or directions left me confused several holes as my first time playing. Typical wannabe pro golf kid with attitude working register with no clue about greeting people with a smile and attempting to be welcoming and friendly.
At end of round lazy old guy working there for free golf was unfriendly as well. Asked him for a towel to wipe my clubs as he did not offer. I was told “ we don’t have any, they don’t give us any “. Wow no towels at a golf course.
In all fairness the course was in nice shape. Greens and fairways cut nice. Just an amateur managed course with no budget. I will not play again.

Fun

Fun course, some quirky holes, many lay up areas seemed safer to just go for it all, local knowledge helps on many holes for first time players, friendly and good food, beverage cart girl was extremely attentive. Overall fun course to play and course is in good shape.

Not fun

Unfortunately due to the rain it was cart path only, however the pace of play was so slow we skipped final 3 holes after 4.5 hours and the staff didn’t seem to care (except the food cart girl who was very nice). People playing loud music, talking a lot on the greens next to tee box and very inconsiderate and so slow. Could have been a nice round for fathers’s day. Even when we brought it to their attention they did nothing to help he situation. Very disappointing.

Hello, Jeff. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With a full roster for the holiday, we worked hard to accommodate everyone and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are worked to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time, and we will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Cattails. We hope to see you again soon.
