Harassing marshal
Aug. 2020
Conditions were good. By 5th hole marshal said he was "personally called" by foursome behind us about pace of play. Turns out to be young members. I questioned the marshal on our pace of play and he stated we were "on time" but suggested we play faster for the group behind us???? I assume the marshal was someones grand parent and the members get to influence the marshals directly trying to bully players to play through. We did permit a play through and the foursome tee'd of 7 times until they got the shots they wanted, no thanks or anything else said in return for the play through. Basically these ambassadors of Marshes membership and marshal were rude, lack integrity for the game and play with no etiquette. Never again!

Hi Brucep186, Thank you for sharing this feedback with us. On behalf of the team, I would like to apologize for the interaction you had with one of the Golf Ambassadors. I have shared your comments with our Head Golf Professional so that he may follow up with the Golf Ambassador group. Certainly, putting any added/unnecessary pressure on players to speed up a round when pace of play is on target is not a regular practice, and should not be happening. Please do feel free to connect with me directly - I am happy to discuss this feedback with you. We truly hope that you will consider joining us for another round soon. Sincerely, Jenna MacLeod

We went to play golf and have lunch.
Jun. 2019
Played nine holes of golf and really enjoyed it, had lunch in the main dinning room , will try the bar next time. It’s a relaxing place to go, and it’s practically on our door step.

Bad Greens
Oct. 2019
Love the layout, but hate the condition (at least this year). Hope it was the very difficult winter that was responsible for the lousy greens. Maybe consider dropping the price until things improve? PS - post golf bar is great!

Great course, both the marchwood par 3 and marshes
Aug. 2019
Love playing here (except hole 2 on the marshes). The greens took a while to grow in due to the harsh winter, but they have done so to a degree. Seems to always be tournaments here so it can be tough to get a tee time.

Come on...maintain your greens
Aug. 2019
Greens were absolutely horrible! Not what you would expect for this calibre of coarse. We have played before and it is a very challenging course but for some reason they are not maintaining the greens. To be honest, they weren’t even playable as all your ball would do is hop. We won’t be returning.

Weak Food - Overpriced - Poor Service
Mar. 2019 • Couples
Drive by all the time, stopped in for dinner. What an enormous disappointment. Thought this place had a good reputation. Waiter called me “Boss” 20 times. Ordered a Guiness and Mediterranean Salad. Waiter brought me a beer, but not a Guiness. The picture here represents a 20.00 Mediterranean Salad - Dinner portion. Pathetic food, worse Service. Borderline dirty, and ageing. Not recommended. Pick a different place.

Needs work to come back to being great
Aug. 2018 • Friends
So on a Tuesday in the summer, greens poorly maintained - accepted ball well but very bumpy, practice putting green atrocious shape, driving range only had 10 spots open to hit from and no balls at range, no food and beverage cart going around course and the restaurant on site was not open. All in all for a course that wants to be high end, a very be mediocre experience at best. Marshalls and the checkin staff at the carts were great. While when it first opened it was certainly worth the price, it is now overpriced for the experience delivered.

Great golf course, but !!
Aug. 2018 • Couples
my wife and I had a weekend away planned and are avid golfers. We booked our tee time a week in advance and arrived an hour or so early. We bought a few items at the pro shop and were going to hit a few balls on the range, but some people came in at the last minute and they wanted to put them in with us. We really didn't want to have to do that, so I had to talk to the pro shop and the guys at the first hole to convince them we just wanted to play the two of us. they did end up letting us do it, but I was sort of disappointed. The other troubling thing was we didn't see the drink cart all day. it was seriously hot out, and we like to have a "cocktail" while we are out. I even called the clubhouse on the 11th hole to ask about it and we still never saw her. It seemed like crappy customer service. Besides that the course was in good shape and the pro shop was very helpful. I didn't really want to stop for a drink after because of the service, but we did because we were dying of thirst. It was ok too.
