Cascades Golf Club
Not too hard, not too easy. The course was well maintained.

well maintained course, friendly staff. tight fairways. sunday foot golf was a small issue, if they could possibly start @ 10am you could start your second 9 infront of them

Non-golfers on the course
With golf carts they were playing some sort of soccer game that the course has set up. The problem was, it was a big group and we had to wait at each hole. Not only that, but at the last hole, they drove their golf carts right across the green. Bizarre.

Foot and Family Golf Needs Etiquette Lessons
First of all, I love this course, but that love is fading...
The entire course was empty yesterday. A group of women were finishing hole 1 as their last hole, and I was early so I waited it out.
Teed off the second hole, and then a cart comes by with a mom, pop, and their two kids. The kick balls come out and they go to the ladies tee,
which, at this point is in front of me, and start kicking.
I whiz past them, slowly past their cart of course, and take off to get to my shot that's in a bunker. "stop! wait for the man to hit!" I hear, as I turn
around to see the two kids rolling up to within feet of my cart and the bunker, giggling laughing etc, just kicking the balls everywhere.
I love that they were all having a blast. I love that it's a family course, embedded in what really is quite a nice course design that is also challenging.
I hit a couple bad shots with the thoughts of them in the back of my head. When I got to the green they proceeded to the next hole, and after 5min I was able to tee off, luckily I never caught up to them again. But. That. Was. Annoying.
This has happened more than once, last time I was with other players, and a father/son footgolf pair held us up badly, repeating shots, missing by a mile and kicking it back, etc.
I've been there. 3 Septembers ago, this was the 2nd course I had ever played, and the one I honed my skills on. So I hate to complain. But maybe an intro to golf seminar, focusing not on rules but courtesy and how to keep the game flowing, would be great for all these folks, just to keep the flow of everything going.
I rated food n bev lower because maybe 3 times in 2 years have i seen the snack cart out on cascades.

A Great Surprise!
What a good 9 hole golf course that I just played 18 on. I took my grandson who just turned 9, and my son-in-law, and we had a blast. The initial attraction were the green, or beginner tees, which were well placed allowing my grandson (who normally plays the red tees) to have par and birdie putts (he made one). The greens were a bit slower than the other courses at the Resort but were fine and maintained well. The holes gave the impression of being wide open but there was enough trouble to punish a wayward drive but I couldn't help but pull out the driver.
I did not know what to expect with "foot golfers" playing at the same time but in reality they play very fast and from different tees to different targets. There are 5 sets of tees for golfers and you can make it as challenging as you want - up to 7200 from the tips for 18. Conditioning was great and the people are friendly and helpful. To make things even better, we played under their "family golf" promotion and it cost $90 for the three of us - I was expecting to pay more.
I will be back.

First time on Cascades
Played Cascades this past weekend with a new golfer and was extremely impressed with the course design and philosophy to cater to the new or junior golfer. What a great way to introduce the game of golf. We planned on playing just 9 holes but continued on and finished 18 as the pace of play was great and conditions beautiful. I was also introduced to foot golf and as a parent of 3 soccer players at home, i cant wait to come back and expose them to this form of soccer golf! Matt was the starter and was a great ambassador to the course. Be back soon!!

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.
