There was so much cut grass laying in piles, your ball would be barely off the fairway and you could not find it.

Couldn't tell the difference between rough and fairway. Seemingly hadn't cut the grass in weeks and there were giant clumps from when they did. An entire green is under construction, shortens the hole by over a hundred yards. No signage, no warning from the pro shop.

Teed off 30 minutes late due to double booking tee times, which were already stacked.

Several issued were raised to staff. Various responses included "well we got your money" to "it's your job".

Hello, thanks for the review. We see you rated the course 1-star. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We take single star feedback very seriously at our course. We always appreciate the feedback. Please reach out to our team in the golf shop. Thank you for playing Idyl Wyld Municipal Golf Course.

Management of tee time was below average causing our time to be pushed back by 30 minutes mainly due to the cart path only rule. Pace of play was very slow due to cart path only rule.

After pulling up to the course and seeing 6+ carts in line to tee off on the first hole, I knew it was going to be quite backed up. They advised me that they had a system issue and everything was double booked, but no resolution was offered. I need off almost 30 minutes after my tee time and it was packed the entire day. Grass was not cut well; It was very choppy.

course was too wet for them to cut the fairways so they were in horrible condition and took forever to find the ball in the taller grass. Really disappointed to see they changed out hole 12 to flatten out the green. This course is already short and easy enough, that was one of the challenging holes we all looked forward to. Poor choice.

I play at Idyl Wyld on a regular basis and also host my annual golf outing there. The course is in excellent condition and is very beautiful. The pace of play is usually pretty good. (Except when the local high school team is practicing) The staff is friendly and Jason is an excellent Pro and teacher. The Pro Shop is small but they are well stocked with the necessities and One Under Bar and Grill provide great food and excellent service as well as outstanding accommodations for golf outings. I give it FIVE STARS!

Okay course but the pace of play was pretty bad you had to wait on every t- box, made me feel like the course over booked. It's also a shorter course.

For what it is -- a lower-end municipal course for beginners or people looking for cheap golf -- it's pretty nice. I played for the first time this year yesterday and the course was in the best shape I've seen it in in the 13 years I've been playing it. Lush and green and well-maintained throughout the property.
