Featured Golf Course Review:
Indian Echo Country Club -- Nice buy
Review by: Michael Taylor I have played this course for the first time today and am wonderfully pleased with the condition and setup of the entire course. It has a lovely putting green and practice bunker, and is an excellent course for the price of green fees. Stay loose on the first tee, and whatever happens, happens!

Pine Crest Golf Club -- This course has a rude staff
Review by: Mark Shields Exceptionally rude people work at this course, particularly the Head PGA pro, Jerry something or another, and the super. I only live a few minutes away, so the course became my "home" course as it were. But after having been a 20-plus-rounds-per-year golfer for nearly 6 consecutive years, I was not once ever addressed by my first or last name--not once! Nor did any employee ever do or say anything to help me with anything--ever. Every request was always greeted by a begrudging approach displayed by all, even the people at the snack counter! I never liked the staff or the course, but it was nearby. All of us know that the extended winter this year created an eagerness to get golfing, and I was no exception. Now imagine playing just your second round of the year when the following occurred: April Sixth, '05, arriving at the course shortly after noon, I noticed about 6 people around the practice green. No one was on the first tee or getting ready. The course's starter, an elderly man, was relaxing in a golf cart near the first tee. The club house is a bit removed from the first tee, so often--if the starter is there--I would begin play and then pay while crossing over to #10. The same was true this day. So I asked the starter to inform the pro shop that I would be paying as I finished #9. This allowed me to get ahead of that small group. I try to complete any round as fastly as I can. Also at that time, a single player in a cart joined up with me. We had completed 7 holes when the head PGA guy, Jerry, came rolling up in a cart driven by another employee. Apparently the starter failed to notify the clubhouse of my intentions. But I was immediately confronted by an intensely aggressive 2 men. I tried to explain my intentions, but all I got from him were such phrases as: "you understand me?" or, "Is that clear? Mostly, it was the hostilty in their glances that most annoyed me. I was not initially angry. I was just stunned to have been treated in such a demeaning way from people I had seen so often. But my anger did build as I finished the first nine. And I sought an apology from him. My entire logic focused in this question: Is the starter an employee or official agent of this facility? Of course his answer was a smug "no." I simply demanded to speak with a higher authority than him, preferably a GM or other type manager. Unbelievably, while I was assured a manager was on the way to speak with me, they called the Montgomery Township police. You should have seen the faces of several employees as the police arrived: like gloating little children who had just tattletaled on someone. In fact there was a small gathering to enjoy the show. Absolutely despicable, dishonorable behavior from so called PGA representatives. Of course I remained calm, explaining to the police what had occurred. I never did get to speak to anyone, nor do I care to at this point. I will never again set foot at that rude place. I just thought others should be aware of this. Sincerely--Mark
