1- I booked a tee of time for 9 holes for 11:10am on Sunday May 11th. Upon my arrival I was informed that due to the frost, all tee off times are delayed. I asked the gentlemen why wasn't I informed of this before coming here by a phone call or something. The gentlemen replied saying that they just simply don't do that.
2- The gentlemen told me that my tee off time was rescheduled for 12:30pm. I arrived at the golf course at 12:10 to give me some time to practice chipping and putting & possibly hit some balls at the driving range. Upon my arrival I hear my name through speakers saying that I was next in line. I was then rushed to pay and get my cart to start my round. While paying at the counter the gentlemen informed me that during weekends we don't accept 9 holes and that we had to pay for 18. I had to battle with the gentlemen and explain to him that when I booked my tee off time that I booked for 9 holes.
3- The golf course itself is nice to play on but not when you are rushed. during my 9 holes, we were told twice by 2 different marshals to hurry up.
Conclusion: That was the first time I was ever told by a marshal to hurry up and now twice on this course! on a 9 Hole! that's ridiculous. The game of golf is supposed to be fun and relaxing and not stressed! I blame the poor organizing and planning skills of the Canmore golf and curling club. Maybe if the club had started the tee off times at 11am instead of 9am, or if they would come up with a better system for keeping client phone numbers for situations like this, this problem could have been avoided. But I get it, at the end of the day it's a business, and they were probably trying to get as many people on the golf course to make as much money as they can. and its too bad because I have played there before and enjoyed it, but its experiences like that, that makes me want to never come back again.
