Course Review and Comments

OK, first of all...I'm not a real golfer...or love the game?! Are you serious? That's the first lame comment. Second, the course is in horrible, HORRIBLE, condition. Hell, call the course and he'll probably tell you himself. Their whole entire irrigation system is broke down. The whole course hasn't been watered in a couple of months, except for the works of mother nature. Another thing, "you" even admitted that you don't know Jim personally. Do the math dip****, from my experience, it's on a personal basis. Of course he's going to kiss your butt AT the course. He wants his money. You obviously don't know him like I do.

When you only have to pay a cheap ass $1,600, for 3 courses, I mean, it's obvious that they're not going to be ANYTHING compared to the likes of Muirfield Village, Scioto, etc...You get what you pay for. Another thing...their carts are in crap condition! You'd be better off walking, better yet, going to another course. In the times that I've went, I've had numerous carts' belt(s) break, leaving us stranded on the course; I've had a tire come off the wheel while going over a bridge which damn near caused me to fall in the creek.

Like I said, I've actually known Jim on a PERSONAL basis, not some "when I go to the course basis". When I first met him, he was in fact a really nice gentleman, the nicest guy in the world. However, after knowing him for quite sometime, etc., I later found out by a couple of people who actually work for him, the things that he said about my family and I. The course conditions are obviouslly a 0, which upset me, but why else would I take the time to write a review. I probably wouldn't of wasted my time doing so. But, when my family is involved, as well as myself, I want(ed) to let everyone know, before they go out and spend their hard earned money, that 1) The course is in horrible condition, and 2) Some of the people out there aren't the nicest people in the world.

You'd probably spend $40+ on a weekend to play 18 with a cart. If you're looking for a decent course in EXCELLENT condition around the area, go to Darby Creek. The layout is nice, the scenery is nice and you get your money's worth. It's not far at all from Indian Springs/Woodland. However, I'm done with public courses. That's why I joined a private club. Like I said, if you're visiting the area and just looking for a round of golf, go to Darby Creek. If you actually live around here, there are quite a few private clubs at a bargain price. These courses are in superb condition, top shelf service and so on.

At first, my experience(s) with Mr. Long and Indian Springs were great, 10 out of 10. Now, I probably wouldn't even give it a 2, honestly. It's sad to see things turn out this way, but the truth definitely hurts.
