business believes course etiquette doesn't apply to employees. from the initial phone call, until we parked the golf cart, staff exuded rudeness, disregard, and indifference. man who answered phone was abrupt, and arrogant. the attitude here is of arrogance and privilege. played on wednesday, during showers and rain. no rain checks, as players continued through rain, lightning and thunder. we stopped temporarily,after hitting our drives on no. 9, and watched with amazement as the group of old couples behind us trudged during steady rain, lightning, and thunder. no horns to call carts back. maintenance crew continued to mow, and rake traps with their riding equipment while we hit our approach shots, and putted. heard horror stories of 6 hour rounds, as scheduler packs groups in 4 minute intervals. some have had a 1 1/2 hr backup on 1st tee, and no carts! won't allow us to take bags to car on cart after round. recommend staff read emily post's etiquette book, but doubt they would change, as rudeness and arrogance must be a prerequisite quality. scorecard reads: slow play will not be tolerated. their definition of slow play must compensate for their disregard of spacing tee times and cram their tee sheet. if you don't schedule a tee time before 8, expect to spend 5 to 6 hours of the day here. my playing partner told me he had to wait 1/2 hr. on a par three with 3 other groups on one round.one mower saw us in the fairway about to hit our approach shots, and continued to mow in front of the green! no protection on his mower either. do they expect us to wait for them? did he think it's unlikely we'll hit 2 consecutive straight shots? or is his life expendable, as ordained by management? little value is placed on customers and even staff. hopefully another course will open nearby, to shorten the 6 hour rounds here, to only those who enjoy being snubbed, dictated, and gouged by overpriced course, or members who are more arrogant then the staff. I scored a 6 over from the whites, enjoyed my companions, and like the tree-lined course design, but will seek an alternative next year, even if distance is required. the course was well maintained, although greens were slow, even before the rain.

Bad experience with the starter and ranger. They cater to the members and the general public suffers. Greens were not in very good shape - appears to have a lot of rounds played. $89 is a bit steep for the quality - but consistent to the surrounding courses that offer a better track.

Nice course. I play this course a few times a year and am never dissapointed with it. They keep the course in good condition. Not overly tough, although a few holes have some water that make it a little tricky. Nice little bar with live music after the round.

Some of the rudest people in all of south jersey. The pro shop attendants, starters, and fellow golfers were all a bear to deal with. The course is in good shape, but not overly diffcult.

pace of play was horrible even for a weekend day. Delayed 40 min from scheduled tee time. At one point there were 3 groups waiting at the tee on the first par 3...unacceptable.

everyone was rude!
