Course Review and Comments

I was a little leery of playing here after reading a few reviews but didn't think they could all be accurate, but they were! Golf course can only get away with that price because it's the only one in the area. Stateside you would only pay $35-$45 max for a course in that shape OR it would close because no one would play it!

Caddies didn't have any wet towels to clean clubs, rental clubs were 10+ years old and missing grips on some clubs . . . this was the norm on all 10 sets that I looked at. Greens were slower than shag carpet and many had sand on them and were under repair.

At the end of the round when I asked to talk with the manager to express concern about the rate for the course along with the poor rental clubs and pointers for the caddies, he started dropping f-bombs at me by the practice green and claimed that all us f*!$ing Americans all F!@#ing thing they are Indians and to F%&*ing go back to America. I threw my hands up and walked away because he obviously wasn't concerned about the business or kind of course he was running.

Just look at the Jan. 8 review from a golfer and now mine on Oct. 18 and you can see that changes or better maintenance definitely aren't happening!

Sad that the Robert Trent Jones name is attached to this kind of poorly run facility. Simply put- DO NOT waste your money playing here!
