We had a group of 3 people with a 2pm tee time, and the course ran out of carts. I'm not sure how this is possible - the course was not even very busy. We waited until about 2:40pm before two carts became available for us to use. By this time, a number of groups were waiting and there was quite a backup. The course itself was nice, but the staff and carts left much to be desired.

He would not play this course again.

They ran out of carts. Our tee time was at 2:10. I booked it on Golfnow for $65. There were "many" groups waiting on carts. At 3:15 we were patiently waiting on carts to be brought to the driving range, then we started seeing people that we KNEW were supposed to be behind us coming up to the range with their carts. We called the proshop and they said they would have carts right up to us. We had to call again, finally we walked back to clubhouse and intercepted a cart on the way. We teed off at approximately 3:40. Luckily we were all in a position to wait it out, but what if wouldn't have been. We barely finished before dark which was an inconvenience. The person managing the shop did agree to give us the 9 hole rate which helped us feel better. Oh forgot to mention they charged us $77 per golfer even though we booked it for $65 on golf now. Luckily we paid attention to that and caught it after the fact. I understand the challenged of running a golf course, and I hope this was a one-off situation. Unfortunately I had to experience it and it was far less than ideal.

Course was in great condition and that was the reason we came.

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.
