Cascades Golf Club
Mixed with "foot" golfers not a good idea
We have played this course several times and have been very happy with the course and the staff until yesterday. Started off really good. Finished the front 9 in a timely manner. After we made the turn to continue the next 9, there were 6 "foot" golfers in front of us. For those of you that don't know what this is, it's people that play on the course that kick a soccer ball into 2 different holes on each hole. Needless to say it took about a half hour to play 1 hole!!! We wound up teeing up on 2nd hole but had to wait again for the "foot" golfers. Way to frustrating!!! We left without completing the other 8 holes. Went back to the club house to complain and all they basically said was there was nothing they could do about it. If we go back, I will definitely ask if they have any "foot" golfers scheduled that day. Management needs to figure something else out for this type of sport.

Foot golfers really slowed the rate of play to a stand still. At one point my foresome, and 2 more behind us waited to tee off. 12 golfers standing there!
The soccer ball golf thing sounds cool and I actually wouldn't mind trying it.
But they need to tee off together and at once. Then let the golfers go. It is way too obtrusive now.

First time playing this course. One of my pet peeves with courses is disorganization. While they do have few guys at the valet station they had no starter for the course. I was told to go as I was ready. Between my first and second shots on the first par four two groups showed up at the tee. One of the groups instructed the other to go to the second hole because of a league situation. They were nice enough to let me go through but things like that should no happen in my opinion. I was extremely annoyed by it. Also they have two holes on each green (one of them really wide), another thing annoyed the heck out of me. Course pace was very good and conditions were satisfactory.

Very nice 9
Nice course with beautiful scenic backdrop. Well maintained , only issue was groundskeeper seemed to be watering the greens everytime we reached the green. The group behind was breathing down our back with someone hitting off of the youth tea. Overall very good experience and amazing value.

Cascades is a 9 hole course with 5 sets of tees. The longest (black) measures 3627 yards on the card. The blue is 3315 and white 3022 yards. Ladies (red) is 2741 and juniors (green) plays 1538. There are 2 holes on each green. A regular hole and an oversized (fastplay/juniors) hole. The juniors hole is designated by a checkered flag on the green. Of note is that this course also offers "soccer golf". Never heard of it but apparently there is a red flag set some 50-150 yds away from the target hole (designated by another red flag near the green). Didn't bother any of our shots during our round. Back to real golf. We played the 1st 9 holes from the white tees and the 2nd 9 holes from the blue. It came out to 6337 yards which was perfect for us as we are used to playing from white tees that measure very close to that. The course can be challenging unless you hit a straight ball all the time. The wide openness of the course can lead to deceiving yardages. There are plenty of sprinkler heads that have yardages on them so it's not difficult to get center of green yds. The greens are large but played firm for us. Fairways were wide enough to hold slightly errant shots. If you miss wildly, just hit a provisional. The course was in excellent shape and played fair. Had a real good time and would return. It was a 4 3/4 hours round but ,enjoyable.

Cascades is a great bang for the buck
I'm a beginner golfer so I was looking for a course that's easy on the wallet and will not be overwhelmingly crowded or difficult for a guy who's just really starting to play. Cascades was perfect for me to work on all parts of my game (it all needs work) and was kept in wonderful condition. An intermediate golfer will also enjoy this course as well as it does contain some challenging features, such as changes in elevation and bunker placement. Overall, a very good value and worth playing.

Weather was perfect and staff was out taking bags and delivering to golf carts. Check in was friendly and they had Pyramids set up for the range (normally get token) Course was in great shape overall. Only gripe was that they ran out of water in coolers
