Went to the course today to play as a single. Got there about 10 am, cashier called the starter to see if he had room for me. His reply was yes, send him down. Upon arrival he took care of the 2some ahead of me. Paired them with the waiting 2some. Then he told me he will have to work me in. I thought this was unusual since the course has a waiting list for those w/o reservations. After the 4some left a 2some came and he sent them out and did not attempt to put me with them. I went back to the club house and asked for my green fees back. Its a shame that those working in meeting the customer have a bad attitude and don't know the damage they do to a course reputation. The course is always in good shape for a muni but this is the last straw for me. I will never patronize them again
Nice course but unfortunately the management is beyond terrible. Pace of play is slow but the sense of entitlement and lack of customer service is unbearable. They need to clean house with all the employees and start over, if they did they would realize what a nice course and money maker it could be for the county.
Beautiful course, and kept in great shape. I would have given them 5 stars but their pace of play, sucks. If you play on the weekend, expect to be there at a minimum of
5 1/2 hours. Sorry, but the Course Marshalls have no idea how to approach a group to speed up play. Played three weeks ago (weekend) with a start time of @ 8:35 am and left the course at 2:00 pm. I will only play during the weekday.
Enterprise you can do better! I recommend your tee times be farther apart or provide your Course Marshalls with training on how to approach slow players. A Course Marshall should know that there should not be two holes open in between groups. Know the proper time limit to look for a ball.
Although this is a beautiful property, the pace of play is destroyed by groups of players gambling on the game, in my own experience, over 12 players in a coordinated informal gambling tournament. The starter knew what was going on and there was no attempt by the players or course management to ensure that the rest of the people on the course got their money's worth.
A good public layout for this area that was in great shape when I played in late May. Beautiful wooded property with a fun mix of holes. I particularly liked 10-11, a dogleg par five that plays from an elevated tee way downhill and then back up to an elevated green, and a blind, risk-reward par four where an aggressive tee shot must carry trees on the left.
I'll definitely return (great, well-priced course just a half hour outside of DC is tough to find) but there are a few areas that Enterprise needs to address to become my regular haunt. I saw zero marshals on the course, even though I played on a Sunday afternoon. I didn't expect to set any pace records, but play was unbelievably slow even though the course didn't seem all that crowded. I played as a single and was surprised at the lack of a "pace of play" culture among other golfers here--most of the munis I frequent have been preaching mindful golf practices, especially on tees and greens, for years. Hopefully this round was an exception, and I'll give Enterprise a chance to redeem itself.
It would be great if they allowed walkers before 1:00 pm on weekends. The future of golf is not driving carts and drinking beers, and this policy will keep me from becoming a regular here.
