Overall
Our foursome went this morning...

Our foursome went this morning to the driving range. We've played here several times under the previous management, and never had a problem. This morning though made it clear that this place is not worthy of a single customer. We all bought buckets of balls that cost $12 per bucket. Is there anywhere else on earth where you can go to a less than mediocre golf course, and get rear-ended like that? After we completed driving, we went to the practice green. We were there no more than 5 minutes when a lunatic drunk practically ran up to us and insulted my son. He had taken a long putt, and this crazy person told me that if there was a divot left on the green that he was going to bill me. My son left not a scratch on the surface nor did anyone else in our group. All of us have played for many years, and most of the time at top-notch facilities like Oak Quarry, etc. This guy claimed to be the owner, and tried to pitch lessons to my son after insulting him. I tried to verify if he was actually the owner, and he touted that his picture was on the wall in the postage-stamp size "club house". I guess he's too stupid to answer a question. He then claimed to have "built the place" which I know for a fact is not true, since I used to go here under the previous owner. When I returned home, I called the course to verify if he was actually the owner, and they seemed to know who he was after I told them of a "drunk lunatic running around". They replied "Oh you mean Mike, yeah he's the owner." So, if you want to pay 4X the rate for a normal bucket of balls, or attend a crappy small course next to a noisy thoroughfare with noisy single-engine planes flying over every 2 minutes, and then possibly have the joy of encountering an old wannabe pro drunk that runs around like a lunatic insulting the customers, than have at it.
