I read the other reviews and had to speak up. I've lived on the course for 10 years and can vouch that management is always accommodating and responsive. My kids and wife have never been told to get off the course or cart path. There is no loud speaker. That's just silly and more like a kids prank. We see first hand the meticulous care they take. Those that complain on their reviews are the exception and contradict one another. One person writes that it is run down and no one plays the course. The next person complains that it is too busy. Likely, the truth is somewhere in the middle. When the weather turns cooler in September or October everyone wants to play and it's crowded. When it's 115, there aren't likely too many golfers. It is a challenging course in the heart of a big city and deserves props for keeping the course in great shape, while respecting the environment and the neighborhood.
I live nearby and they have a walking path that I frequently use. This course is a joke! There is never any golfers and I was taking a walk after hours (7:30pm) I was reprimanded over a loud speaker," told to stay on walking path". First of all, their path markers are confusing, and I see walkers walk the same path that I take daily. There weren't even any golfers... It's funny how a place can be so pretentious when it's just an old poorly maintained golf course. No one golfs here because it's a reputable course, they golf here because it is cheap!
I joined the PDP program here at the end of February and had to sign up for 2 month's, I explained myself clearly to James, the staff member that signed me up, that I would pay cash the following month after my first 2 month expired, not to charge my debit card that I was told had to be on the application. My card was charged while I was out of town and when I called to complain and cancel I couldn't get my money back. I no longer have the time to be at the course to make the PDP worth paying for, I haven't been there one time this month but I can't get a refund, not only that but every time I played the course I could never get in all the holes due to the "pack em in like sardines" mentality they have there, not enough carts to go around, have to wait 15 min to get another bucket of balls, slow slow slow play!!
We played 11 holes this morning and the front nine was in rough shape. We waited at every shot on the back nine and it took about 45 minutes to finish two holes. It was so bad the course employee that played with us left and said it was way too slow!! Typically, the front desk will offer some sort of voucher or discount for feature use. When we asked the guy at the front he started yelling at us. As a business owner I can say this is the WORST management team I have ever seen! I will contact the ownership directly and notify them of my poor experience! Stay far away from this place!!!!
We play 3-4 times a week. Our handicaps range from 7 - 18. We thought this course was great value for money. Well laid out and in good condition. Have played a lot worse courses in America. Staff friendly and helpful without being overbearing. Recommend this course.
