The facilities and staff at this facility were good, but due to high number of golfers were stretched and you had to be patient when booking in and using driving range and practice facilities.
The course was very damp and with many bare patches, we believe they might have suffered a summer heat wave similar to the UK but they appeared to take the action of excessively water the course will repair the damage, but unfortunately this failed as the damaged areas just became mud patches, made the courses long and then resulted in mainly tee positions off the blue blocks which then gave a short course especially for low handicap golfer who were disappointed.
Also tee and ground around greens conditions was disappointing well used and bare in some areas.
The saving grace on both courses were the greens in good condition especially with high volume of traffic.
The main disappointment was as a two ball we were sandwiched in all four rounds in between many four ball games and experienced from 43/4 hours to 51/2 hours
We were happy to join up with other golfers but were never given the opportunity? Why was we not warned this would be the case, or even offered to go off early in front of the four balls?
We would recommend that no two balls go out to these popular courses, certainly at this time of the year.
Unfortunately on our third game of the eight days ( second at lakes ) a thunder storm struck the area flooding many parts of the course, we had to clear the course after only playing 6 holes but to be fair the staff were very good handing out towels as we came off the course and arranging our transport back to the hotel ASAP.
Doubtful that we would go back to these courses.
