Horrible Golf Experience.
The day started in the pro shop. A gentleman ahead of us in line told a staffer behind the desk “I am going to join up with that SEVENSOME”. My friend and I didn’t think much of it, paid our green fee and started playing.
While playing as a twosome, we got stuck behind this SEVENSOME on the back nine. When the SEVENSOME saw us, they split up into two groups, but still would not let us play though. I called the pro shop and was told the marshal would be “right out to take care of the situation”. While the marshal claimed he came out there, we never saw him.
We ended up waiting at least 10 minutes before every shot. It took 2 ½ hours to play the last seven holes. The operators of Indian Creek had no control of their course and it was the worst golfing experience I’ve had in 20 years.
ICING ON THE CAKE – After that nightmare of a round I explained what happened and expressed my concern to the general manager/head professional of Indian Creek along with the marshal (who was not seen during the entire round). The marshal and GM denied there was a sevensome playing (a flat out lie) and I was told we had no right to play through any group because we played as a twosome. After leaving the pro shop, I was approached by a man who claimed to be a member who said the staff commonly allows groups of 5+ and most of non-membership clientele has little understanding of golf etiquette.
LESSON LEARNED – If you have a two or threesome, DON’T PLAY INDIAN CREEK. The staff does not care about the flow of play and allows golfers with no etiquette to run the golf course. Take your money somewhere else.
