I paid more to play at this average course then I have paid at better courses for a lower price, which is why I gave it a two star rating and will not go back.
We made reservations two days ahead of time got there early and were told not to start at hole one, but to start at hole Nine, when we got to 9 there were three parties ahead of us and we were told to start at hole 17. By the time we got to hole one there were several groups of high school students carrying their golf bags with the parents following them in golf carts like a parade. The parents would park the carts in the Fairway until the kids were through putting. All in all the worst golf experience this year.

This has nothing to do with the golf course directly and EVERYTHING to do with the Club 250 Event Center. I purchased VIP tickets for Rock the Ridge the day they went on sale because I wanted to be sure to get the seats I wanted since all other tickets were general admission. I purchased table #6 and table #7 with 4 seats at each for a total of 8 tickets. Both were located on the front right corner of the stage, which is where I wanted to be. I messaged them ahead of the event twice to ensure I was getting the tables I requested and not placed at them randomly. They didn't return my request.
When I arrived there were approximately 15 tables sold instead of the 10 available on the event map. We were told my "table" was on the left side of the stage towards the back. I told them that was impossible and went through the scenario. They again assured me the table, not tables, was on the left side and all tables had names on them. We walked that direction and found a 40" table with my name on it and 8 chairs crammed around it.
As I looked around I noticed the 15 other tables with anywhere from 2 chairs to approximately 14 - with that one being for a party. The tables I had chosen on the map were occupied by other folks. Why the assumption was made I wanted all 8 tickets at one table is beyond me and to have that many around a tiny table is ridiculous.
A lot of lessons learned here. One being the "Very responsive to messages" on FB isn't true, for me, since I never heard back from them either time. Secondly, they are deceptive when it comes to how they handle and honor ticket purchases. Don't post a map to choose your seats and then not give folks the seats they physically chose on the website. And finally, the biggest lesson, don't bother with a place that only cares about taking your money - $143.12 in this case, and not about transparency. If there were changes or misunderstandings they could have been addressed when I contacted them on FB or even walked over to my table when I was messaging them from there (It's not like they didn't know where I was sitting) but they chose not to. In return, here is the review I promised them on my last one sided communication last night.
UPDATE...Because of my honesty that they asked for on FB, they blocked me from commenting any further on there and blocked me from messaging them. Thank you for validating my review, Timber Ridge.
2nd UPDATE...They have now blamed the bands for the tables being moved. Apparently, the bands moved the tables to unload equipment. I'm sure they probably did, however, as the event organizers it's your responsiblity to keep things in order. I highly doubt that the bands combined my two purchased tables into one and moved it to the opposite side of the stage and towards the back.
