Course Review and Comments

First let me say this golf course is absolutely beautiful. We reserve the 712 tee time and showed up at 6:30 because we had a wedding to go to and needed to be done by 11 AM. Despite accomplishing this goal and having a round of 18 in-under four hours we were asked by the Marshall to speed up play. I suspect the group behind us did not like waiting a few minutes at the turn and called their buddy who was the Marshall. Without investigating the merits of their request the Marshall told us to speed up play then proceeded to accompany us on the remaining eight holes to ensure our play was fast. Of note, our threesome had caught up to a single golfer two holes later however the Marshall accompanied for the duration of our round and watched with binoculars as we hit every shot.

For other reasons that I won't go in to, I got the impression that this is a "locals" course and although open to the public they certainly are not welcoming to outsiders. Their "good ole boy" network made sure that my family that traveled across the country from Hong Kong to spend a relaxing morning together proved anything but relaxing.

If you're traveling from outside this area I would think twice before playing Peacock Gap golf club. This is a shame because the course is an absolutely fantastic shape and this could've been a wonderful reunion with new family. I sincerely hope that this day was an aberration and I would certainly hope that typically this course is receptive to those traveling from outside the country, however based on this experience and how sad I felt after a round of golf I have to give this beautiful course a very poor rating.
