2.0 out of
The golf course has an expectation that you play the round in 4 hrs 15 minutes. You can only go as fast as the group in front of you. We took a group of 16 members to play today. Our first group was told that they were 4 minutes behind by hole three. We were waiting on the groups in front of us all day. Our first group was a half a hole behind most of the day because they were playing behind a threesome. Which most golf players would realize. We were 10 minutes behind by hole 10. Not the group ahead of us but the expected completion time. Our entire tournament had to skip 1 hole to make up the 10 minutes. The staff was rather rude and did not care about servicing the customer.
There was not adequate markings on the golf course, which does not help speed of play. I have been playing golf for 22 years and have played in tournaments all over the mid-atlantic and this is the first time that I have ever seen this treatment. I have spent 5 to 5 1/2 hours playing courses all over and did not like it. But I realize that this is a possibility from time to time.
I would not recommend this course to anyone. Layout is not that challenging except for the elevated greens. Course was in poor shape and it ws tought to find grass to hit off of in the fairway
