Course Reviews


I have never experienced anything at any other course EVER like I experienced today at Fox Den. We showed up at 1:50 for a 2:08 time time, paid for 9 holes and went back outside to get our carts. There were none to be found! We had to wait for over 1 hour before two carts finally arrived back at the cart barn. I have no idea why there were not groups bringing them back in every ten minutes or so, unless there were a lot of members on their own carts coming in (?).

After no one had teed off for an hour we still caught up to a group in front of us and began having to wait while there were three groups to a hole from holes 5 - 9. It is obvious as a private club that they will take your money and send you out (at least until they run out of carts!) no matter how many groups are already out on the course. No course management whatsoever! Take their money and pack them in like sardines!

It is actually a pretty nice course and is kept in pretty good condition, but this lack of traffic control ruins the experience. There was one guy in the pro shop and one guy running carts. No one working in the snack bar. I know it was a sunny, warm day in late February, but there had been several of them already in 2011 so they had to know that extra staff would be needed and more carts juiced up (there were about 20 carts in the cart barn but they would not run).

A well-run course should not just take money and keep sending groups out regardless of how backed up the course is. That is why you call for a tee time in the first place. There is a certain amount of time that must be allocated for a group to get off and maintain some degree of pace. If you expect people to come back the golf staff simply must do a better job of managing this. It is too nice a course to allow this kind of mismanagement to ruin things.

Great value. Clubhouse is now finished, but no restaurant yet. This will be an excellent place once all homes, new roads, restaurant, etc. are finished. The course itself is fully finished and is always maintaned well. This place gives you the feel of a golfing community will all the townhomes surrounding the course. A fun course that's diffucult in some spots, but gives you the opportunity to try different options like using an iron on a par 5, iron-iron approach on par 4's, etc.

Very good layout, played it once and going to play it again very soon because of the value. Extremely good golf course!

One of my favorite courses to play so far! Me and my buddies drove and hour away to play this course and it didn't disappoint us one bit. Exceptionally well manicured everything! Layout is great, and the lady behind the bar is a blast to talk to!

Great course. The first time I played it I was surprised. The first 3 holes route you along behind some homes and while the fairways and greens are maintained in excellent condition, it all seemed uninspiring (compared to what friends had told me about the course). But after those holes it really opens up and you have a lot of great holes. Water, change in elevation, woods, its all there and it is a pretty tough test of golf.

For what you get the price is a bargain as well. I think you'd pay more if this course were closer to Charlotte.

Very fun course Watch Out For #5 Very Tough ... slightly overpriced but a nice place to go for a change

I like this course, but the last time we played, as we were unloading our carts, the ranger (?) drove up in his cart and started accusing my threesome of driving carts on the teeboxes, hitting from some guys yard and abusing the greens. We tried to explain to this moron that he had the wrong guys, but he just kept running his mouth and threatening to ban us from the course! Unbelievable. We've been taking our business elsewhere since then with ZERO complaints! I'll NEVER go back. Nice course, but piss-poor attitudes!

A shotmaker's course. A pure challenge from the tips. Several holes straight forward, others require either a yardage book or some local knowledge. Played the course last winter when it was dormant, so I can't give an accurate statement as far as the conditioning, but the greens were good. The back nine is tougher than the front, because it is very hilly and has more decieving shots. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A fun course to play altogether.

very happy with the course, don't trust the yardage on some of the holes, number 10 for example, hit your 175 club and be happy, any more than that and you could be in trouble. the front 9 is easier than the back and the back 9 has a couple of tight tee shots but nothing unreasonable. greens were very fast 7-2007 but fair.

Good Varity

Plenty of Different Shots here,, Narrow Fairways in areas, Water, Houses...Good tough course and the Value is pretty good for after 1pm which i believe is $24, also think Clubhouse being built and almost finished unless I'm Mistaking and that new building is not the clubhouse..heeh,, give this place a try..when ya can

Great course but pricey for Satesville

We played here one time when our regular course was having a tournment. It is verry challenging and you would need to have some local information to play well. We was lucky to be paired with a couple of regulars to make a foursome witch helped. I am not a fan of courses that play through as many homes as the first few holes are.

Overall it is great course my game needs to be lots better to play this course.

Holy Cow!!!

Don't bring your "A" game here. Bring your "AAA" game! This is one tough test of golf. Must have local knowledge as well. I went around the first time and half the time I was like, "Well, I think that's a good shot." Had to play it twice just to get a feel for this place. I will definitely be back to this joint!!! No clubhouse, but who cares. What a golf course!!!
