I've heard the stories and now I've seen the location.
My husband and I golf. We have never asked for a refund on golf or left before finishing the front nine...until today. Fairways and greens in BAD shape. Blind landings and narrow fairways on slopes resulted in MANY lost balls. worst state park course we have been too (many)
