- Pace of Play: Slow!!! Painfully slow in the morning prime time, much better later.
This is a great track! I liked this course more than the acclaimed Bay Harbor Golf Club and I would even say it is just as fun, if not more fun to play than Forest Dunes.
It was SO busy off of #1 that I asked if I could play the back first. They are very nice and had no problem letting me do what I wanted. I played the back in just over an hour. I got to the turn and it was still !SO! busy. I decided to play the back again. This time I slowed down a bit and still got around in just over an hour. All told I played 18 (the back twice) in about 2 hours. I then got in line, yes still a line, on #1. I played the first 5 holes and then caught up with the slow play. There were about 3 groups on each hole from 5 in (3 or 4-some each, with some aging slow players). I bet it would have been 2+ hours to finish 6, 7, 8, and 9. So, I picked up my ball on 5 and decided to just drive in and take pictures of the last 4 holes. We had a tee time at Forest Dunes to get to and I wasn’t going to miss that! Played 23 holes in under 4-hours. I didn’t use my golf app to track my score since I was bouncing all over.
