4th of July. Pace of play on the front was good, greens were slow and unreceptive with approach shot, and fairways were dead brown color.

From the 10th hole on we got pushed around the course by a 3some and 2 2somes. My girlfriend was struck in the leg by a golf ball on hole 16 by the people behind us. The guy did not apologize, only said he thought that would get our attention. We end up letting the 3 some, a 2 some, and another 2 some play thru with 2 holes to play.

When we went to the pro-shop to turn in keys and tell the pro what happened and that I was very disappointed and my girlfriend had a welt on her leg. He proceeds to tell me my girlfriend and the other girl in our 4-some should not be on the golf course because they are apparently not good enough and they should only be on the driving range as its proper golf etiquette. Etiquette Is not letting 2-somes out behind 4-somes and pairing people up.

The course is not novice golfer or family friendly whatsoever. I'm a scratch golfer, won a national championship in college, have played most every course between Syracuse and Buffalo and I have got to say this was the worst experience I've ever had. I'd be very surprised if my girlfriend picks her clubs up again because of this outing, on the 4th of July nonetheless.

So much for growing the game.
