The Huntmore Golf Club
Had a nice round
I found the course to be very nice, and hope to play there again soon. Arrived a little early, and they were more than happy to let me out right away. Pleasant, courteous staff in the pro shop. Fairways are mowed nicely. Greens run true.
If it's your first time out, as was mine, try to get with someone who has played there before. I paired up with someone who was very helpful.
I was a little apprehensive about trying Huntmore after reading some of the recent reviews, but my experience was very enjoyable. Best $18.00 I've spent in a long time. Thanks GN

Tough course that reminds us of why were amateurs. The course played a little long because of swirling winds and late night rain the night before. Greens were perfect though. The ball bit well and rolled pretty true.
This course eats my shorts every time, but that's why I come back. I will get my revenge some day.

LEARN FROM ME
I played here a year ago, (did not write review) and had a bad experience. I told myself I would never go back again but was asked by a customer of ours to play so I went. I wish I didn't!
It was good to see that the trailer home looking clubhouse is at least more presentable but that was the ONLY thing decent today.
As we got to the front desk the 2 wanna be pro's were both looking on a cell phone and ignoring us. Finally I said, "Can you help us?" The guy with the dark hair said, "yup, in a minute." and went back to the cell phone. He could tell we were getting mad so he started to get an attitude. We asked for range balls to hit and he threw the bucket on the counter so that a bunch of balls rolled out. As we were picking up the balls I looked up and he was smirking as if he got the last laugh.
We get in our cart and pull to the first tee only to have the ranger say, "Youre going off # 10, back up". We looked and no one was on the fist hole but on the 10th hole there were 4 older ladies who were not even to the 150 marker. I asked why can't we go off #1. He got irritated and said, "Because I said so!" The guy I was with spoke up and said, "What's your problem? The ranger didn't care and just pulled away.
The course says it is the "premier" course in the area but they should be sued for false advertising. The greens were a joke and full of sand so that its like putting in a sand box. The tee boxes were pretty tore up and not taken care of too.
When the round was finally over we wanted to tell the manager that we will never come back. He was not there but another guy was (shorter guy with brown hair). When we told him what happened and that we will not come back he said, "LIke I care!:" Are you kidding me??? To overcharge for golf on a sub par course with rude people is unacceptable.
Please learn from my 2nd bad experience here and don't go here!!!

LEARN FROM ME
Last year I had a terrible experience here ( I did not put a review but I should have) and had not gone back until just now because I was invited by a supplier our company uses.
Its good to see that the trailer park looking clubhouse is at least more presentable--but that was the ONLY thing decent about this course.
The first thing we got to experience was the complete lack of respect the front desk gave us. The 2 younger guys were looking on a cell phone together totally ignoring us! We finally said, "Can you help us?" and the dark hair one looked up and said, "YUP, in a minute!!" We should have walked out right then. They could tell we were mad and they got an attitude. We went to hit range balls before we played and the same dark haired dude threw the bucket on the counter so that a bunch of balls went rolling off and onto the floor. As we were picking up the balls I saw that guy smirk as if he got the last laugh. 2nd chance to walk out but we didn't.
The range was good except they don't move the ropes so all that's left is dirt to hit on.
So now for golf. We pull up to 1st tee and the ranger took our receipt and said, "You're going off the 10th tee" We looked and no one was on the 1st hole but on the 10th there were 4 older ladies not even to the 150 marker. I asked why cant we go off the 1st, no one is on it. If we have to go off the back, can we at least go ahead of the them?? He got mad and said, "Do what I said and if you jump ahead of them I will kick you off!" Now my supplier gets mad back and said, "Whats your problem?? Do you guys know what customer service is? Long story short, we got stuck behind the ladies and played a very slow round.
The greens were a joke. They were full of sand. The tee boxes were tore up and didn't seem cared for either.
When the round was over we went to the desk just to say we will never be back here. It was a different person up front #shorter with brown hair# but still just as rude. When we told him what happened and that we will never be back he actually said, "Like I care!!!"
Overall I should have learned from my first awful time here and never gone back, but now I will never go back. I hope this helps anyone else out there.

First off the front desk was so rude and didn't want to help us much. It seemed they would rather joke with each other than help. Then they directed us to a cart that didn't work and just watched us from the window. You would think the starters would be friendly but he was mean and barked orders, as he did we could smell alcohol on his breath. The course seemed too busy to play at any decent pace. The course itself was average but the so called best greens around should be labeled a beach because they dumped a ton of sand on them. Way too much to make it realistic. Finally the round was over and we went to front desk to complain but the guy didn't care and chuckled as he said, "have a good day". We will never go back and won't recommend to anyone!!!

Over priced in General... The greens have very little maintenance to them. Most of the path is mud. They want $50 to play the weekend normally. I was asked to stick to the path because of lots of rain no problem at all I thought. Well the sand hill crains on the course have these babies right now with them on the defensive side. As I left the path to give them space they shut my golf cart down with a sandhill crane on its way to attack me. The cart has GPS..myself being a hunter I have had many encounters with them none like this. No compensation offered.

Was hoping for more
This was not my first time playing Huntmore. It had been a couple of years. The course is under new management, and I have to admit, they are putting a lot of money and effort into the course. 4 months from now it might look great. I just happened to catch it while under construction. There were a few holes that were pretty chopped up. The greens were very sandy, almost like they waited too long into the fall to aerate and top dress them. There are a lot of gimmicky holes where you have to play target golf. If you haven't played it before or it has been a while since you have, it can get a little frustrating. Staff was very nice. I will probably play it again, but not until late summer.
