Course Review and Comments

I guess i should start by saying i am 3 months away from turning 30 but i do look yougerr than that. I have played golf since i was 5 years old and have played at so many different courses in the almost 25 years. i am in Deleware just for thanksgiving from maryland.

the first thing i noticed when i walked in the proshop door was the guy wearing jeans giving me a look as if i sould not be there. that turned out to be the pro i guess or just the guy working the counter. i needed a glove to play with so i asked where the mens gloves were. they were behind the counter and there was only 1 kind. i asked if they were cabreta gloves as i do not like the synthetic. he " with attitude said we only carry cabreta gloves. so i tried on my usual size (small) and then bought the glove and paid for the round. he then set a cart key and my recipte down on the counter and walked away to help someone else. i tried to ask weere i get my cart from but got ignored. so i walked outside and found the cart area were there was no one working. the key did not have a number on it so i tried the key in the first cart i came to and it worked so i drove off. went to the car got on my shoes and noticed the right shoe's sole was coming off. i though dang but hey i got 5 years off these bad boys, i guess it is time to buy another. i went back to the pro shop and looked at the shoes finding a pair i liked. went back up to the guy and asked how much they were. he said the go find the box and the price is on the box and turned away from me. so i went and found the box which only had Nikes's suggested retail on it. i asked him twice if the suggested retail was the price of the shoes but got absolutley no responce. so i decided i would just get one more round out of the out shoes and hope the sole stayed on. i walked over to get a drink but it was closed. i went outside asked one of the guys i was playing with what the real tee time was since he just talked to the starter. we still had 15 minutes to go. so i decided i would get a bucket of balls and warm up. so stupid me decided to go back into the pro shop to get a bucket of balls. the guy said to me you only have about 10 minutes to your tee time and you can not be late. at that point i just said fine and walked out not wanting to get into an argument about how i would not be late and that i wanted a bucket of ange balls to warm up with. went up to the first tee and hit a horrible tee shot and all i could think about was that guy in jeans in the pro shop who really did not treat me good at all and how thirsty i was. and after getting half way through the 3rd hole and still playing horrible i just decided i was done for today and would get a rain check and give it to my Mothers boyfriend to use on another day. but i got no raqin check as he said it was not raining. i guess i should have expected that even though i have gotten plenty of rain checks because of a lot less at other courses. like the course was playing slow and i could tell at the turn i would not get done anywhere near the time i needed to which did leave time for slow play. so at the turn i would just get a rain check for 9 holes and come back another day pay for 9 and play 18 with my rain check.

I will never go back to this course again and would only recommend this course if you wear jeans, do not look young know every detail about were the cartsare, do not expect to hit range balls unless you have at least 30 minutes to hit a small bucket, and do not ever need something to drink. oh ya and there was NO WATER OUT ON THE COURSE. it is winter golf don't you know! i almost forgot that there is no yardage markers at all. no 100 yard sticks and no 150 yard sticks.
