I couldn't give a lower score to this course. I purchased a coupon from Deal Caddy for unlimited golf (actually, I purchased 2). They were $25 each and expired on 05/15/2014. My golf partner and I wanted to make sure we used them, so I called to book a time on 05/15, but the Pro (Ron) said that they were closed due to a tournament. When I explained that I had the coupons and asked if I could extend them a day, he said no. I asked how I was supposed to play when the course was closed and he replied, "Well, there were other days before the 15th." No only is this answer completely unacceptabel, it's the worse example of customer service I've ever experienced. As a VP of customer relations, I see poor CS all the time, but Ron should be ashamed to call himself a Pro golfer - he's bearly a cashier. Since the course is a rediculous mess when it comes to hole lay out and maintenance (maybe Bobby Jones should have stopped by to help you), I would highly recommend that you choose any other Quarry Ridge, Lyman Orchards, Traditions - courses that actually know what there doing and aren't living in a good old boy, screw you if you don't like it, world. I am now a former player at this course.

Absolutely not special. Every tee shot has a hidden landing view and when you arrive over the hill where your ball should be it takes 10 minutes to find it. Makes for extremely slow play. Leave your long irons home as this course plays really short. Get ready to hit with the ball above your feet or below due to crazy bad lies on every fairway. The staff was pretty unfriendly especially the starter, who seemed to stay in the clubhouse all the time. Not a fan!

This course is well maintained, beautiful, and challenging. The slope is high for almost all tee locations. And you can almost always find a good deal here. Recommended.

Literally the worst golf experience I have ever had. In my 15 years of playing, I've never had a less enjoyable round of golf. There is a little graphic on the scorecard that says "No Slow Play." I'm not sure if this is meant ironically because on a Monday non holiday afternoon it took me and my father nearly 6 hours to get around 18. I could not find my ball in the fairway on multiple occasions because the grass was so long. There was no differentiation in grass lengths between the rough and the fairway. The greens were covered in natural garbage, from grass clippings to an abundance of leaves and maple seeds, to fertilizer and sand. The course was covered in unnatural garbage like paper waste and beer cans. We ran into not one but TWO fivesomes that thankfully let us play through but in my opinion should never be allowed on any course. The yardage markers are few and far between, placed in odd locations, and on buried sprinkler heads. The layout is awful with too many blind shots, ridiculous elevation changes, and even good shots are rewarded with a severe sidehill or downhill lie. For a weekday riding price of $48 I'd advise you never visit here. Go play Quarry Ridge, 300 feet further up the road for the same price and the polar opposite in golf course enjoyability.
