Crockett Ridge Golf Course
Reviewed 30 July 2014

On July 25th we brought a foresome to play Crockett. Since this was the day after heavy rains, it was obvious why the course was "cart paths only". We, and all other golfers adhered to the cart path rule and trudged the hilly course. Behind us was the "course owner" and 5 of his cronies, all in separate carts driving all over the rough and fairways (even pulling their carts up on the t-boxes). Just visualize 6 people, in 6 separate carts, sloshing through the water and mud holes all over the fairways and rough, tearing it up even more than it already was. A course ranger named Jim Hunt confronted us early on the front nine, warning us that we should pick up the pace (I guess he wanted us to run the hills through the water and mud). He was the most despicable and rude person I have ever encountered in 45 years of playing golf. His "reasoning" was that, if his boss (course owner) caught up to us in their 6 carts, he would have us thrown off the course! My analysis is that either the owner is the worst business man in the area by setting a precedent in front of many paying customers following the cart path rule or, he is just plain stupid and arrogant by expressing the fact that "I am the owner of this course and can do anything I want, even if it means tearing up my own course and not giving a damn about any of my paying customers. Needless to say, after this experience, I,and many others will never patronize this course again. Furthermore, if many others feel the same way, this man could be put out of business, which is where he really belongs. Understanding that the ranger had a fear of his boss and was following orders, but if he had any integrity at all he would quit his job rather than be part of such rudeness!

We had four to play today 7/25/14. The course was cart path only so a lot of walking was in order. Sand traps were full of water. Ranger Jim Hunt followed us all morning and on the fifth hole he told us that the owner and his 5 playing partners were behind us and that we may have to let them through because the owner did not like to wait. The Ranger told us to keep going but that we may need to wait at the clubhouse before we went to # 10 to let the owner and his 5 partners through. We were going by the cart path only rules but we noticed that the owner and his 5 partners were driving all 6 carts everywhere. The Ranger comes back on # nine and says for us to go on to #10 since the owner and his 5 partners would stop at the clubhouse to eat. On #10 the Ranger came up to us on the green and said the owner and his 5 partners did not stop so we probably would have to let them through or we could go to the clubhouse and get a rain check and come back another day. We still were not holding them up even with our group having to walk and the owner and his 5 partners each with a cart were driving to their ball so we continued. On #15 the Ranger came back and said we were going to have to speed up play although the owner and his 5 partners had not caught us yet. They were getting closer though since they were driving to their ball and we also observed them driving up on the tee boxes behind us. Again the Ranger offered us a rain check and we counter offered to just give us our money back and we would leave. He said OK to this so we got in our carts and left. I have never been treated this way before at any golf course so Crockett Ridge will not be a recommended course to play.

This golf course is a challenge with many different types of holes. What you can usually count on is hills. The greens are well maintained and can be tricky.

We visit many golf courses who dread the woman golfer, not knowing we shoot in the 90's. These people made us feel welcomed. The facilities for women, were okay. Public, well landscaped, lots of sand. Blake even directed us to local Mom & Pop BBQ place that was excellent.
All that and affordable too.
