Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

9/16/22: Review by KirklandSpecial

Tee boxes - above average Fairways - excellent Greens - below average Played the course more times than I can count in the last 5 years. The greens were the best the crew can make them, but more than half of them have dead spots. They put the flags in the best spots,...

    "Best of the best"

    From the pro shop staff, starter and everyone else associated with this course, TOP NOTCH all the way. Played with another twosome and it was a little slow as they searched for balls quite frequently, but as far as course conditions, OUTSTANDING. Greens rolled true, fairways and tee boxes were in great shape as well. Senior rate fit the budget and it was truly an enjoyable day of golf(outside of the score I posted) and that was surely all on me.

    "Never going back"
    Course photo

    I’ve played Monroe Country Club four or five times and each of the previous rounds has been very enjoyable. The exception was today. We had a foursome and teed off at 9:20. From the 8th hole on we had a ranger monitoring us on EVERY SINGLE HOLE. He complained that there were two holes open in front of us. Well duh! From 8:58am till we teed off at 9:20 nobody teed off ahead of us so, yeah, there were two open holes ahead of us. Then when we finished the front nine, a guy told us we were 20 minutes behind. Really? The last few rounds I’ve played there have been completed in 4:15 and I’ve never been warned by a marshal for slow play. Then on the back nine we had a marshal still with us timing us on each hole. Bottom line is we finished the round in 4 hours and 10 minutes, which to me is about the norm. Now according to “your rules” you pretty much have to finish 18 holes in 3 hours and 40 minutes. Now really, don’t most people work all week to go out and have an enjoyable round of golf? With this kind of treatment to players it is ANYTHING BUT ENJOYABLE. It was the first time the three other players in my group had ever played Monroe Country Club and judging by what they said at the end, it will be their last. Mine too. If the 3 hour and 40 minute time is what they demand for 18 holes then turn the thing private because I don’t know too many golfers who want to have to hurry through their round.
