SLOW PLAY AND OVERBOOKED!!! IF YOU LIKE SNAIL''S-PACE GOLF, OVERBOOKING, AND AN UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF, THEN THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!! I booked a single tee time riding 18 via Golfnow.com on Fri., June 10, 2011. I play alot of golf and a lot as a single during the week thru Golfnow- never any problems. I know that as a single you are taking your chances, you might have to play through or be paired, etc.., no biggie. If it matters, I shoot 70''s-80''s. I get through 4 holes and beginning at the 5th, the tee boxes are stacked up with 4-somes 2 and three groups deep. The group ahead said that it's going to be a looong day. Tee times got off 20 to 30 minutes late (no rain or weather delay), and that there was no starter and they had seen no ranger. They suggested I drive up a few holes and then double back later. I drove to the 7th, stacked up, 8th, stacked up....all the way to the 15th with the same senario all the way. I stopped at some guys at the 15th and asked "what the...?"... Two said they used to be members when it was a private country club and now it is ran terribly and unprofessionally and this is now the norm rather than an anomaly. I went back to the clubhouse to ask for a refund and the 12 yr old general manager mockingly shrugged his shoulders and said "well, you are a single" AS IF IT IS SOMEHOW MY FAULT FOR SHOWING UP AS A SINGLE!". I said "so what?, you advertised the tee time and this pace would be unplayable under any circumstance, I'm on pace for over a 6 hour round.". So he grabs hs calculator AND PRO-RATES A RAIN CHECK FOR 14 HOLES GOOD FOR A MONTH WITH NO APPOLOGY OR ANYTHING. I said that I just drove 38 miles (I live on the east side od Cincinnati) and I doubt I'd get back within a month to even use it. he just matter-of-factly said "that's all I can do", and hands me the rain check as he's waiting to overbook more walk-ons waiting in line with no warning of slow play ahead. That's when I went off!! several of those waiting turned and walked out...at least that's a little satisfying. 38 miles at $4 a gallon for an overbooked course, an attitude, unprofessionalism, and a pro-rated rain-check for 14 holes. what a shame, because the 4 holes I did get to play were nice!
