Went to the range after my round to hit a few more balls and work some kinks out. Got kicked off and told you can only hit balls before your round if you are not a member. For the $70 fee they are charging after taxes and fees I found this extremely tacky and embarrassing. They could have just said "hey man, you’re good for now but next time just a heads up you can only hit balls before...ect" which would have saved me the embarrassing moment of having to go grab my clubs and walk off the range in front of 15 people. Plus, there were not any balls on the range before my round to begin with so one could say I was just getting my money’s worth. Normally I would not write a bad review but this really irritated me. If you want to be a private course than be a private course. if you want to be semi-private and charge $70 for people to come play then let them use the facilities for the day. I’m not saying let them play 36 holes or anything like that, but heck if they want to go hit a few more balls on the range what’s the big deal?

Course wise it is a very challenging place. Conditions were very wet just as they were the last time I played it a year or two back so not sure if there is a drainage issue. All the fairways were soaked and I don't recall there being all that much rain. Could be wrong. Won’t be back.

He would not play this course again.

This course is always in excellent condition and the green contours are challenging but roll fast and true. So true I managed to knock in 3 birdies on the front nine. Not a bad hole on the golf course but you will need some local knowledge on the few blind landing areas off the tee. The par 3's are long and difficult and about the only thing not to like is finishing the front 9 on a difficult part 3 over water. There are reachable par 5's from the Blue Tees. The scenery is picturesque. The staff can be a little snooty to non-members. But if you can get over that, you are in for a real great golfing experience.

Last time i played the towne club it was late in the summer and the bent greens were in terrible shape. There were multiple greens with that were either burnt up or had crabgrass on them. The superintendent has really turn them around and they are rolling fast and true. The rest of the course is in the best shape possible for winter. The course has a good mix of long challenging holes with forced carries that make you think about every shot from tee to green and short holes that give you a really good opportunity at birdie. The practice facilities some of the best I've seen at both public and private courses. The driving range is all grass and they set up titelist range balls pyramid style at every station.
I'm very certain I will be back to play this track again as it was one the best all around experiences I've had at any course

He would play this course again.
