Reviewed November 23, 2014

So I was playing with one of the top defense attorneys in Bakersfield doing some business , and some guy in a cart came out and said we were parking too close to the tee box, to use the cart path. (he looked like he was on something) But..Okay, Fair enough.. So, the very next hole we see the guy park next to the 17th green when the cart path was available! We couldn't believe it! So after the match I pulled him to the side quietly and asked him why he did that, he started yelling and cussing totally lost his temper, it was very uncomfortable at one point he was so close to my face yelling he was spitting in my face! Needless to say the conversation got heated instantly. He said if I don't like it get the F*** out, Turns out the guy is the owner(so he says)(I thought this was a county course)..But, What a dirt bag, I'm not only never playing golf here again, I am disappointed because I have played here my whole life. I can't believe this course has made a turn for the worst with the management and the conditions. I would highly suggest you be careful when playing here or check out a different course where the managers treat people with respect. You never know when you could be the one embarrassed or in a compromising situation.
