"Great course"

5/25/22: Review by aimtobreak80

Background: First time in 5 years posting a review; 6 month's since playing following a year of health issues; and 3 years since last (recorded) play at Skybrook. Observations: Addition of two, new restrooms on the course is a BIG improvement; trap's and bunker's conditions...

      We played Regent on 9/17. Thought the course was great. The layout was great and the 10 minute interval between tee times kept us from ever feeling rushed. I really enjoyed the fact that the holes are really spead out and you almost felt like you had the whole course to yourself. The greens were a bit rough though. Several of them were “splotchy” and burned up in places, but other than that, I was very happy with our decision to play there. Many have claimed it’s “pricey”, but $60 (including cart) was a GREAT deal for a course this nice in our group’s oplinion. We’re used to paying $50 for an AVERAGE course around here. If you want to talk about “pricey”, try playing in Vegas or San Diego, where a decent track will cost you well over a hundred to play on. All in all, we were VERY happy with this place.

      Thanks for the information regarding Birkdale. Has anyone played Regent Park recently and if so how was the condition. It used to be one of my favorite tracks but last year it was not in good shape at all.

      Thanks,

      I played Regent Park about 2 weeks ago. The course is in excellent shape and the greens were fast. The price is a little high but overall its in very good condition.

      I played Regent Park last week for the first time. I was very unimpressed after all of the talk I had heard about it. Greens, fairways, and tee boxes were all in bad shape. Practice facility was pretty beat up as well. Most of the bunkers were very nice though. Not worth the Friday rate to play there.

      played course on 6/20/2008. Fairways in good shape. Only problem is the militant b#%&*! owner who doesn’t know the first thing about PR or customer service. I’m not quite sure what her problem is, but she acted like Regent Park was Augusta National. I won’t be back because of her abrasive attitude.

      Played Regent Park on 10/16. The course was in pretty good shape. Some greens were a little beat up, but fine overall. One weird thing happened that I’ve never seen before. I was waiting on my brother to check in so we could head to the first tee. After a few minutes he had registered and “paid” with the lady behind the pro shop counter and we started the round. We showed our receipts to the stater and teed off on 1. Three and a half hours later we were on the 16th tee and the marshall approached us, asking again to see our receipts. My brother pulled his receipt out again and realized he had only been charged $6 for three balls he purchased. Apparently the pro shop had screwed up and not keyed in his green/cart fee on his credit card in the beginning. Somehow they had dicovered this later on and sent the marshall all the way to 16 to ask my brother to come in and settle up when we finished. Once we finished he spoke with the same lady who apologized and re-entered the transaction correctly.

      I can understand an honest mistake, but to send a marshall to track down someone in a situation like this when it’s your own fault is a little troubling to me. My brother did not mind paying the $40 for the round, it’s the curcumstances that were sort of unprofessional.

      I hit up Regent Park Golf Club for the first time ever today (8/2) and came away with a need to play it again. The layout is spectacular and the condition is even better. Could be one of the best maintained courses within 20 miles of downtown.

      The course must drain well because we’ve gotten a good amount of rain this week and I couldn’t even see many wet spots at all. Fairways, for the most part, are forgiving and the thick rough presents a challenge. The greens played well and the fringe is very well defined. In fact, the fringe helped save some of my approach shots from rolling off the green.

      I paid $40 for twilight, which I’m not bragging about. Wish it could be a bit more affordable to play at Regent Park, but it’s definitely worth the money.

      For some reason this course had been off my radar for years. I’m not sure why, as I was unbelievably impressed with the conditions and layout during my round on Saturday. I took my dad there who was visiting from Buffalo, and he was blown away, saying it was his favorite of the four we’ve played here (Stonebridge, Carolina Lakes, & Verdict Ridge were the others). Of note, the course handled the 4″ of rain rather well. Though it was cart path only, it wasn’t a swamp out there, and the overall conditions were impeccable. We paid 4 for $179 for an 8:40 tee time on Saturday, which I would say is a steal.

      We have booked a round at Regent Park Golf Club over Thanksgiving. Are the greens really that bad? Is it worth playing or should we look for something else?

      I played regent park 3 weeks ago, haven’t been there in 6 years. The practice area is not what it used to be. Love the layout but not in the best condition. I thought the cart would fall through on the long bridge. Would love to see some improvements.

      Have played Regent Park a lot this year, and it has become one of my favorite layouts. Played on 8/30/14 and the course condition was good. One of the best things about RP on Saturdays is that the pace of play is usually not an issue. It took us 4 hours 20 minutes last Saturday, and that was actually a little slower than normal. We usually start around 7:45 so we are out early, and done by noon. Greens starting to show a lot of ball marks, but overall in good shape. Only real negative is they still need more water stations.

      Played RP on 7/25. Still in pretty good shape except for the bunkers, which have the same problem as a lot of local courses. Over time, they lose sand. If the sand is not replaced, you end up with a very thin layer of sand over very hard, compacted earth. No problem as far as fairway bunkers are concerned, but a big problem in greenside bunkers. A very thin layer of sand will not allow the club head to pass under the ball, so you either try to intentionally hit it thin, or you will chunk it five feet. Someone (I assume an employee) at the clubhouse told my friend in our foursome to play outside the bunkers because of deferred maintenance – that is the first time I have ever heard that. Hopefully they can get this issue resolved.

      Greens a little beaten up but putted fairly well. I probably fixed! 100 ball marks other than my own. One other issue still persisting is lack of water stations. Bring a lot of water with you.

      Regent Park to close early next year. Played last week and could tell the maintenance just not occurring.

      Regent Park hasn’t been officially sold so they are still running as normal. Which yes, means the course is in eh shape.
