Haven't been there, but if there's truth to his gripes, I'd be pissed too.

$20 a round is a bit much. Don't understand the "don't go after your disc" thing. I get them trying to deter disc divers, but retrieving a disc a few feet from shore shouldn't be an issue.

As with all things, there's probably more to the story.

Bad strategy. If he'd given them a 3.0, the review would probably stay up. As it is, only a few of us will be lucky enough to see it.

Yeah, I haven't played there either, but I've been on this site long enough to know it's a great course. $20 is steep, and I've payed that at Phantom Falls and Bucksnort with no gripes. I was wondering about the no-retrieve policy, and if that came about from an on-going problem with douches stealing discs out of there and they had to draw that line? I'm also sure there is more to the story, like there's probably a huge billboard by the 1st teebox outlining all the rules and regulations, but I don't know.

Also, if you've travelled far, and throw a disc into a lake, do you really expect to get it back? I tend to throw something I don't care to get back, it's just common sense. And the $20 fee, what was the previous fee, $10?? So he travelled far and is complaining about $10. Sometimes, small unexpected expenses are insignificant compared to the angst one can put themselves through.

On the upside, some people think my little local 9 hole pitch and putt is better than Maple Hill!!

maybe, not sure. The question is, did he do anything on the "Reasons to get pulled list". Giving it a low ranking isn't on there. There have been too many with a 3 or 4 disc difference from the rating that were allowed to remain. On the management, they sounded full of spite. Only time will tell. It would be great if he would have recorded it so we could hear their little pre-round routine as it unfolded. Oh well.

Wow, $20 for one round, per person? Can anyone confirm if that is correct?

sounds like a lot of spite both ways.

although, no way i would leave my disc if i can see it in the water close enough to use my golden retriever. but cross that bridge when you get there. what are the chances it happens that way and what are the chances management sees you?

in all seriousness, that's a helpful review and i gave it thumbs up, even if i don't respect the rating.

Not sure if it's per-round or per-day, but otherwise, yes. They recently increased from $10 to $20, on weekends through October. $10 other times.
