Bought a voucher for Debell a few months back that expires in a few weeks so thought it would be a great place to take my son to play. Course was 5300 from whites so it won't be too long for a junior.
But then I just realized it has been over 2 years since my last play here and now I remember why.
Check in was slow. Only 1 person in the proshop and he was not very friendly. Processed my voucher. And then sent me off. I walked to the cart and realized there is no key so I had to go back to the proshop and was told you have to sign in. Why he didn't say that in the first place, I don't know.
POP was about 5 hours 20 mins. Given that I have read somewhere on their website that tee times after 10:00am will be monitored for a 4:30 pace but never saw a marshall all day. Not sure how they monitor the POP.... Saw the bev cart 3 x during our round though.
Spoke to a few members in the front group and they say it is pretty open during weekdays but horrendous on weekends.
Conditions. Tee box mostly level although some are pretty chewed up. Greens are decent - good roll, some bare and damaged spots but pins were away so did not affect play. Fairways were hit or miss but still lush in most areas. Bunker I was in was well stocked although not the nice sand.
Some of the holes are pretty nice and certainly is a course that will test your skills. I enjoyed playing the course on a regular outing but the POP for a short course is just too much to bear. I wouldn't be back for awhile.» Close
