Course Review and Comments

We had a very negative experience at this place. This short course causes backups and delays because almost all of the par 4's are driveable, which means you have to wait on the tee boxes until a foursome in front of you putts out before you can even tee-off.
The Marshalls were rude and one of them named Don, actually cussed at us when we protested his judgement that we were holding up play because we were a shot behind the group in front of us! We were on the tee box of a blind par 3 "carnival-type" hole where you had to ring a bell on a pole after you've putted out to let the group behind you know your done....so guess what...the bell didn't work. We waited 5 minutes on the tee box before driving up to see what was taking so long and find the group ahead was off the green and only 200 yards up the next fairway, but Marshall Don swoops in and jumps on us to pick up our play while we're putting. We tried to enjoy the rest of the day, but he comes back at us 14 holes later to give us more grief on hole #17, calling us smart-a$$es when we asked him if we'd been keeping up a better pace. In my 40 years of playing golf, this was the worst....Even the club pro there, while we tried to lodge a complaint against the Marshall, twisted his face and rolled his eyes at us in disgust and disbelief, all the while, trying to give our foursome a free pass to come back. Why is it beyond some people to simply say "We're sorry you had a bad experience Sir, we'll make sure this doesn't happen again." We declined the offer for the free rounds because of the tone of his voice and the lack of sincerity in the gesture, and we are taking the Marshalls advice when he told us earlier, "Maybe this isn't the type of golf course you should be playing!"
Thanks for the advice, Marshall Don, I guess you guys don't need the paying customers in your line of work, or care about repeat business in this economy!! And a bad rating from only one foursome posted on the Internet won't hurt you in the longrun......right?


Date course was played Friday 03rd of July 2009
Price paid for golf 46
Price comments The price is pretty reasonable, but once you see how short the course is, you understand why it's not more expensive.
Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Although a beautiful place, it's designed for short hitters. If you can drive the ball over 240 yards, expect delays on most holes because of the players in front of you needing to finish out.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Great views, greens were in nice shape.
Bunkers needed more sand...they were hardpan. If not for that, I'd have given it all 5 stars.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Cart girl was nice, we tipped her well and she visited us often.
The Marshall and Club Pro ruined the overall "service" rating here....
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Clubhouse/Restaraunt is picturesque, but hot dog buns were stale and on this day, at least, left something to be desired. Food is a little pricey for the quality.
No driving/practice range,
Small practice green with only 4 holes makes putting with others difficult.
Course Overall Rating
Play Again No
Recommend No
