Chardonnay golf day may have been corked
There is no question that this golf course has a California wine country feel and an interesting layout. Unfortunately our golf experience was marred by what I perceived to be a public player attention deficit. We were the public players and the the golf staff thus had attention deficit. Public players are allowed to make tee times after noon. Most of our group arrived early to enjoy a lite lunch prior to teeing off, the balance of our group intended to grab a bite after our round. We were ten in total and had reserved three tee times. This is our story.We were told that singles would be filling our groups of three, okay, I guess. One of our singles was actually a man and his golf instructor. Wait you ask, “might that be distracting and awkward?” Yes, it might be and was. Our first group teed off and got about 180 yards down the fairway when we met up with one of the players from the group in front of us. He was returning his golf cart after one hole because it was losing power. Before we completed our first hole one of our carts began a low gear protest as well. We called the pro shop, requested that a replacement cart be sent out, and were assured that one would be forthcoming, none ever appeared. That herky-jerky cart limped into the cart barn after nine and our player secured a cart with a bit more oomph. Upon completing our round, we walked into the restaurant to find that the kitchen was closed and that the bar was eager to do the same. The first group, thankfully, ordered drinks for our players still on the course so the bar could button up at 4:30 PM. This investment cost each of us over $50 and I must say that I felt more welcome and better treated for half the price. Please know that this was my experience and it is my review. Others may have felt more valued.
