Jamestown Golf Course

Overall a nice course for intermediate golfers...however as a beginner you will feel unwelcome. They don't accept tee times and you will start with 5-10 parties backed up infront of you and the same behind you. A lot of the other reviews say that it moves at a brisk pace, I disagree. We played right behind the foursome infront of us the entire time. When we got to the 7th hole (par 3) I had just taken my second stroke onto the green when a ranger came barreling down the hill in his cart. He shouted to my mother "OH WHAT YOU DONT BELIEVE IN RAKING THE SAND TRAP LADY?!" She never even hit out of the trap... And then he accused me of the same thing... I never hit out of the trap either. (Also, rude... You don't call someone lady unless you're being disrespectful) Then when he saw that he was wrong (there were no marks in the trap) he accused us of taking to many strokes and reminded us that this game is supposed to be played at a brisk pace ( he was yelling the entire time). Now I'm not an expert golfer but I think two strokes to get onto the green on a par 3 hole is pretty ok. Anywho, he again lied and told us the front desk told him to come yell at us, then drove away. We finished playing and talked to the manager at the front desk, he had no idea about anyone calling anyone to come yell at us. He was extremely accommodating however, and apologized for what happened.

It's a beautiful course and will maintained. If you walk be prepared as there is much ground to cover. Mike goes out if his way to care for all patrons, too.

This is a beautiful well maintained 9 hole public course. You cannot complain when you have views of the water. The man In charge of releasing you out to play is stern but good at keeping ordered when starting.
It is always busy here so be prepared to wait. (We waited 45 mins to get on). The speed of the course really depends on who is in front of you. Right now I have time to write a full yelp review between homes due to it being so slow but it's not always like this.
We will come back later this week to play again. I hope the back up is not as bad. We have a while foursome still waiting on the 4th hole to go up.

Played this great nine hole course twice and really enjoyed both rounds. The course is very well maintained. Lush fairways, good sand traps and nice greens. This course is built for low key "vacation" golf. The fairways are wide and the hole reachable in regulation with a modest drive.  

This course does a brisk business even on weekdays.  I suggest getting there early.

Changing my rating to 5 stars after my tenth trip here this summer. I love this place!  It has to be the best 9 hole course in the state..Price wise it can't be beat either. The course is in such amazing shape. The only negative I can come up with are the crowds and pace of play on some weekend days - but then again it comes with the territory for a nice public course, in a nice town, in the summer.

Since my initial review I'd also like to add that the food is pretty solid here and carrying Arnold Palmer Half & Half is key.

Absolutely awesome.
