    Played Saturday November 5th and it was slow as usual, the course managers need to get a clue on how to run a golf course. But to make matters even worse, as we made the turn, in between 2 foursomes, we noticed they let two older woman in front of us on hole 10. We've been waiting on tees and fairways through the front nine and then we see this on 10. So I went in to ask if they can let them off the front, and there was a very rude woman working there and said, "I can let them off the back if I want to."
    I told her we've been waiting on tees all day, and the first hole was open. Again she said, "Doesn't matter, I can do that if I want to." And continued to look away, ignore me and just be a royal P.I.T.A! I told her that's a horrible way to run a golf course, and again she said, " I can do whatever I want to." I will never play that course again, the entire staff ehind the counter think they work at Augusta, and that woman should be canned.It's always backed-up, and noone ever does anything to make the round goe faster. I would suggest playing there however if you're in the mood for rude employees and a 6 hour round...ENJOY!

    Played on Saturday Sept. 5th, course was in great shape, we accidentily made a tee time at the Kennsington course in Ohio and the course staff was extremely helpful and managed to work us in.
    They were very pleasant and understanding of our mistake. Will definitely be back.

    Played Sunday with friends and was charged $45 each for a course that was only worth about $20.00, I say that only because the greens and I mean all the greens were in terrible shape dead ruts running thru every green and not in a few spots all over every green. Could not putt without ball bouncing at least 5 or 6 times on an average length putt, I feel they should let people know ahead of time if greens are that bad and charge appropriately. I have played Kensington GC many times over the years and it's generally in pretty nice shape greens and all. Bottom line I don't mind paying for a nice course but don't like being charged for something I'm not getting in this case a course not even close to what they charged, won't be going back anytime soon and can't recommend to friends either!!!

    Nice course but clubhouse personnel need lessons in customer relations. I showed up later than the other 3 in my group, paid, and met them on the 1st tee. After the round they mentioned that they had paid for my round. I had to drive 30 miles back to get my money back, and the person wanted to argue with me even though I produced receipts that listed 5 green fees paid for our tee time. In general I have found everyone at Kensington Metro Park woking in even the smallest position of authority to be rude. On the bike path I pulled off the path and took off my helmet to wipe the sweat from my face, and was warned over a loudspeaker from the metropark police to get my helmet back on. Power trips abound in this park.

    Great lay-out, well-maintained but poorly run. Played a 5 1/2 hour round Sunday.
    Club officials state that slow players do not have to allow quicker players through if they don't want to and that no one should ask to play through but only if offered.
    Ridiculous. They have golf etiquette completely background.
    Nice course but not worth the aggravation. Pro shop guy wasn't particularly friendly either. He actually threw the change back at one of our group. Not worth the drive or the money.
