Horrible Restaurant Service

So we are the first ones in the restaurant sitting at a table in the restaurant. Waited to get served for 15 minutes. My brother was going to buy me a birthday lunch. Twelve guys belly up to the bar and all bet served. We didn’t even get looked at. Not, “we will be right with you or thanks for your patience.” I will never try eating at Izaty’s golf course again!! Horrible horrible service!! Should get a couple free rounds of golf!! Zero stars!!

Beautiful challenging course!

We play at this course once a year when visiting family . It is in excellent shape and very beautiful. It doesn’t seem as it should be challenging, but it is!! Lots of practice areas and driving range to practice prior to playing. First time seeing a cart in the middle of the round to get a snack or cocktail which was nice. They have a restaurant to have a drink or some food after. Overall would recommend but just wish I could score better!!

Much to be desired

Had rain the night before so Course had water in fairways in every bunker. Still did not show that it was in great shape prior to the rain. For a resort course. It left much to be desired.

Good course

The course is very nice. Staff is friendly. Our only issue, was the course allowed a very slow group of 6 to tee off in front of us.

Bad weather

Have played the course for 20 years. One of my favorite places. Didn’t get to play yesterday because it snowed. Will get a chance to play on another day.

Rough around the edges

Greens were nice. Cart paths bumpier than rough. Branches over cart path need trimming.

Lovely Course, Friendly Staff

Truly beautiful course, can be challenging on certain spots but very enjoyable. I think prior review from 2017 is an outlier. I have never been mis-charged by staff. They are always incredibly friendly and helpful. As for the drink cart, it came by our group twice on the front nine alone. Love the course and staff!

Solid Course & Value

A few things ... The greens were some of the nicest I have played in Central MN ... But unfortunately we had a group infront of us who either did not know how to repair a ball mark or flat out refused to do it ... It is really unfortunate when the greens were in such good shape ... Fairways were in good shape ... Tee-Boxes were a bit worn ... Carts were gas and were fairly quiet ... It would be nice if they had beverage coolers and sand/turf-repair bottles in order to keep those fairways in good shape ... Suggestion on which tee-boxes to play ... I normally play the blue tees (but not the tips) but if I were to go back and play again I would slide up to the white tee's ...
