I live about 8 minutes from the nearest course. After that, I have to drive half an hour in any direction to get to another course.
I'm curious to know how long other people have to spend driving to and from the course.
I'm asking because I'm tired of the course I play.
It is bad condition.
It is very tight. Fairway then trees. no rough really.
You either hit the fairway or are punching out behind a tree. - hard to score well.
It is the only course around and everyone plays it but it is ran poorly in my opinion. They say they allow groups of 5. But there are almost always groups of 6 and even 8 out there. Drives me nuts!
The staff is polite. But the players don't seem to understand golf etiquette or even have common courtesy sometimes.
There is no one on the course from the staff that forces groups of 8 to breakup or instruct slower groups to allow others to play through etc...
There is no beverage cart on the course. You have to wait to make the turn get refreshments. I've never understood why. You can't tell me that they couldn't hire some young girls (like every other course) and pay them cheap to drive around and sell stuff to people playing their round.
All in all, I only play there because it is so convenient. But I've noticed after playing there all week I don't ENJOY my rounds there. I'm frustrated and irritated most of the time. In the end it does impact how well I play.
I'm wondering if I should just drive to another town and try different courses. I just dread the half hour drive after the round is over.
I live in south Georgia but I'm thinking that if I lived in a city like Atlanta etc... I'd have to drive half an hour anyway? So maybe half an hour drive isn't so bad. - especially if it is a nice course at a reasonable rate.
