You might wonder why I didn't fill any information out, and it's because I didn't get to play. I might be new to golf, but I'm certainly not new to life, and customer satisfaction plays a great deal of importance for me. After driving the 5 miles to this course on New Year's Day 2012, I found them a bit backed up, but nothing serious. They were combining people up into groups instead of allowing us to play alone. I'm a novice golfer (just picking up the game), and I prefer not to hold anyone up (I routinely tell others to play through). When the young man tried to put me into a group to build a foursome, I told him I wanted to walk and play alone. He informed me that neither was allowed. Walking (on a weekend) I can understand, but combining a novice golfer with a group of strangers who have quite possibly been playing their entire lives seemed incredibly foolish to me. I might be a novice, but I've been around a few courses in my time, and they were not THAT backed up...maybe two or three groups waiting ahead of me. I've seen MUCH worse. I am looking for a home course and based on my visit to The Ospreys, it will not be there. As a new golfer, I felt brushed aside, in the way, and and treated as an inconvenience. If that's their way of keeping new players away from their course, they just succeeded. Unfortunately for The Ospreys, they won't get any of my money or recommendations, either.

A little more than an executive course (6 par 3's and some very short par 4's) Big hitters would be disappointed. No driving range. Accuracy is much more important. It's a great course for seniors and can definitely be played in under 4 hours.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
