Pace of play awful

The only reason I didn't give this course a five star rating was the pace of play. It was easily the worst I've ever seen from a group ahead. It was a foursome of seniors who were taking their leisurely time and refusing to allow groups to play through. There was no ranger at all out on the course, which seems to be a recurring theme here, and it got so bad that they had a line of three groups behind them waiting to tee off. We seriously considered calling the clubhouse and asking for a ranger to come out. Eventually we skipped 16 just to get ahead of them. The course really needs to improve the presence of rangers and monitor pace of play better.

Great course

This course is my second favorite course to play right now behind Mountain View. The layout is challenging but has a few easy holes mixed in. Most of the course is in great condition, but the only "complaint" I would say is the 17th hole tees have been moved way up turning it into a par 4 because the front half of the fairway is all messed up. The club grill isn't ever staffed really so make sure you bring your own lunch but there is someone who brings around drinks and such.

Classic muni layout

Princeton is still a nice course but its bunkers need work. There's some drainage problems and the greens need to be mowed.

The on-site range is pretty good.

Good when not wet

Princeton has several tight fairways, some difficult holes and some easy ones. It is a pleasure to play the course when it has not rained for a while, because the drainage is terrible on several holes and when it’s wet especially the last four or five holes are cartpath only and not a lot of fun to go out into the fairway. All in all, Princeton is a good, challenging course!

Underrated

Tight course. Greens were in perfect shape. Fairways and tee boxes better than most courses. The back nine was dry and played great. I would just avoid the course after heavy rain.

Horrible Customer Service

Called to reserve a tee time, My husband is a county card member, w only wanted to play nine holes. The woman on the phone was in short an idiot. She could only book us for 18 holes, walking, then we had to prepay in order for the reservation to be held,( what? never had to do that before) Okay she could not give us a rate for 2 people, nine holes with an electric cart,( said she did not have those rates available) How could we prepay if I didn't know how much a cart was going to be. Here's the kicker, I use my CC to prepay for 2 for 18 holes walking, when I get there, I tell them I want an electric cart and I pay for that with a cc at that time. So I'm using my CC to pay twice. This woman was so uninformed as to rates, and gave us the impression that they could not care less if we golfed there or not. Our current course is closed but will be reopening next year, after this experience it cannot happen fast enough.
