Annual golf weekend in the Catskills and we played here for the first time. This valley course is in great condition and has some very challenging holes. Meaningful water hazards on five or six holes and if you're not good, water becomes an issue on even more. $55 with cart. Not bad.
However, no formal pro shop, a joke of a tee time reservation system and noone, and I mean noone to enforce basic golf etiquette. We were constantly held up by a sixsome which led to painfully slow play. The group behind us hit up on us at least four times before we said something. After we asked the sixsome to split up, they would still spend ten minutes looking for a lost ball. Six hour round of golf. SIX. Never once saw a ranger, never once had an opportunity to ask anyone affilated with this place to enforce the rules.
After the round, there was noone to talk to about this. I'm not a serious golfer but there are basics that every golfer should follow, especially on a weekend.
Afterwards, we opted to eat in the restaurant and it was reasonable and good, albeit a little slow.More
