West loch is a good course. But, my experience was spoiled by the unpleasant personal. Golfers are customers and they must greet and treat us so. The person operating the golf cart station is lacking the spirit of Aloha. Very bossy, with a confrontational tone. He should not be scolding golfers for being in his way or simply putting a hose nozzle in a place he wishes it to be. Someone has to correct this. I know that many grumble about this individual, an individual that should be happy he has a good c&c job during retirement. He has spoiled a day of recreation for many. Many avoid voicing their dissatisfaction, but many are unhappy with this gouchy old man. I'm a senior also, but find no pleasure acting like a "moke." Treat your customers with dignity and respect. If you do not enjoy servicing customers, picking up for paying customers, find something else to enjoy your retirement.
This course would normally get a 4-star rating from me because of its layout, challenges, cost, maintenance and playability. Today, we're here because a former co-worker invited (challenged) us to play. We were excited because our tee time was at 8:25AM so we didn't have to wake up at "zero dark thirty" and traffic going West wouldn't be too bad.
We arrived without incident then we were met with signs announcing "All 18 greens have been aerated". Oh, no! That means the putting surfaces have small holes punched everywhere and filled with sand. Ok, that's good for grass growing and future playing conditions but, NOT for when you're playing. Well, at least we agreed upon the "automatic two-putt" with the caveat that your first putt must end within 2 feet from the hole before you pick it up. If it's further than 2 feet, the player must putt again until he/she reaches the distance of 2 feet. We joked that we felt like we had to take "full swings" or hit hard. Some of the fairways had water damage as there were bare spots or mud instead of grass. But, we played on...
Normally, this municipal course is among one of my favorites to play..it still is but, marred by aerated greens. We had fun, enjoyed great sunny weather, walked our 10,000 steps or maybe more and talked ourselves into a post-golf "feeding frenzy"!
Only place to play on Xmas so we came down. Nothing spectacular and nothing horrible. Avg course at decent prices. Make sure to bring your resident card for the discount.
Considering the price, this was a fairly good course. I'd probably give it 4 stars if I hadn't gotten attacked by red ants... be sure to watch where you stand!
Enjoyed playing here. The course is in good condition for the most part and has some interesting variety to it as well. Cant beat the price.
