Course Review and Comments

The problem we had with SHCC is the rude members of the club. This course recently opened to the public. When we got there we were told that they were running late so our tee time got pushed back about 15 minutes (no big deal). When we were finally ready to tee off, one of the members interrupted my friend in his back swing to cut in because it was his regular tee time (which happened to be much later than ours). We got bumped a couple more times and finally got started about 45 minutes late. After 9 holes we stopped at the club house to get a hot dog and a drink(15 minutes).

When we got to 10 another group of members interrupted us again in mid swing to barge in to maintain their regular slot. Manners can go a long way and one guys lack of class and manners almost resulted in a fist fight.

5-1/2 hours later we were finally done at SHCC....forever. I go out to play to relax and have fun, not to get angry and feel uncomfortable and unwelcome.

This was like a scene from Caddy Shack only there was nothing funny about it.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments The course is pretty flat. There is not much variety in the holes. It feels like you are playing about 5 holes over and over.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments the course is in excellent shape. I didn't try the driving range.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Their lack of a course marshal and a starter really caused some problems. The people in the restaurant and bar are really nice.
