Course Review and Comments

As a member of the golf club and an avid golfer it hurts to write this. I have been a member of this course for 2 years. It is the only course in Sierra Leone. There are several major issues here. #1: the professional golfers don't understand their roles and think they own the course. They don't understand golf etiquette or simple things like saying "fore". They are also some of the biggest cheaters on the course and don't set the example for the amateur golfers. #2: the competitions are always spoiled by continuous cheating by most of the members. They have lost the sight that golf is a GAME of integrity. I would only recommend this golf course if it was your last resort here, and it is. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of people that make this golfing experience enjoyable. I have enjoyed my experience overall in this country, but as an avid golfer I feel bad being associated with this club. The management and professionals are set in their ways, and unfortunately unless they change golf in Freetown will forever be spoiled.
