    Very disappointed with my experience here today. Purchased a $39 Friday before 1pm coupon from clickitgolf. Before doing so I checked Olde Sycamore’s website. No where did it say they were observing holiday rates today. (Turns out they actually were in holiday rates from Thursday through Monday, Memorial Day) even when I called to book a tee time and asked their current rate they never said it would be their holiday rate. So the best del he could give us was $51. Guy in line behind us had exact same issue. But sucking it up and paying the extra fee we tried to get to golfing. Well one of the genius workers decided to close our trunk with our keys and one set of clubs still inside. They refused to pay triple A to come and unlock our trunk even though it was their employee that took it upon himself to shut our trunk. Our tee time was 10:30 so by the turn it was a little hot. We stopped in the club house to get some food and refreshments and enjoy the ac for a few. We were told we had to leave and take our food and drink to go because we were at the turn. Wtf?!?! Overall attitude of the employees, with the exception of the drink cart girl, was very poor and borderline rude. And strangely the on course bathrooms were all locked.

    The course conditions were actually pretty good. Greens were much slower then they led us to believe. Their quote was “you’ll feel like you’re putting at Augusta” I’m not a major fan of the lay out. Lots of blind landing zones that would mysteriously eat up what appeared to be a good tee shot. Pace of play was great. We finished in four hours. But for reasons having nothing to do with the course itself, I will not be returning to this course.

  • On the website the pricing list shows “Holiday” rates – just fyi. Sucks they locked your keys in the car, that’s BS. I used to like to play OS but for a little bit of a longer drive I would much rather play Red Bridge. If you haven’t played there you should give it a try, great course.

  • I know the holiday rates are listed on the website. They just don’t tell you when those rates are in effect. And I LOVE Red Bridge! It’s definitely worth the drive.

  • Played a couple weeks ago and the pro said the greens were rolling about a nine. I don’t think any of the four of us got the ball to a hole all day. Joked we needed to use a 3 wood to putt.

Lots of clubs around town will do short game clinics (1-3 hours on one day) that are fairly inexpensive ($30-$100). Stonebridge is one course that offers this. I've taken the one with Fred Bond and got my money's worth out of it. These types of clinics are usually a good...
