Im not sure who is in charge at this course but let me get this message across to you the best way that I can. Today I experienced the WORST day of golf imaginable at this miserable excuse for a organized golf club and will do anything and everything in my power to get the 448 dollars my family has spent at this club back. Three men are to blame for this train wreck of a afternoon, I refer to them as red shirt, green shirt, and blue shirt. red shirt obviously makes a large impact on the rest of the crew on how they act. This man has obviously been given a the prestiges crown of butter brook grounds management and has placed himself on the throne of his own arrogance. this man is tan, balding, and has white hair. Might be hard to distinguish. Ive never met a man who dishes out such a arrogant and disrespectful flare to full grown men and women who are, by the way, well respected VPs, Attorneys, and business owners who know plenty of wealthy golfers who, I assure, WILL NOT spend money at a club like this after our review. red shirt, started at hole number one. "2 rules, stay on the golf path, and play at the pace of the people around you." easy enough. wrong. hole number four. the arrogant red shirt prince has arrived once again to dish out his daily serving. let me give a setting. The people behind us, are family, and there not close, people behind them, FAMILY, then no one behind them for a hole and a half. There, now let me continue. red shirt continues to YELL at me and THREE other GROWN men that we need to move faster, TALKING IN MY BACK SWING, I HAD TO ACTUALLY WAIT FOR HIM TO STOP TALKING. So eventually we had to give the red shirt prince a talking to and he learned that talking to four grown men the most arrogant and disrespectful way that you can probably isnt something you should do, especially when the men that you are yelling at, have paid $448 dollars to be on the course. green shirt. not quite on the absurdity level as the red shirt prince but only because hes offspring, hes still learning to hunt. green shirt starts off with the easy looking pray, the women. that didnt go so well. after the man has been following around the women for a hole, one of the woman came to the quick realization that she didnt call in a baby sitter, he was gone shortly after he was given a talking to as well. blue shirt, he was just a stragglier, oh and by the way flipped off one of the grown men, that was interesting. Then one after the other red shirt, green shirt, blue shirt, nagged and whined at the paying customers all the way to the ninth hole. so there you have it, that was my PITIFUL excuse for a afternoon of golfing, maybe it would have been worth it if I was playing pebble beach or saint Andrews, but I wasnt, I was playing a course that isnt even that impressive to start out with. I have played over a hundred different clubs and not once have I nor my family been treated the way we were treated today. when, by the way, we were just trying to enjoy my aunts birthday.

Worst golf experience in quite some time and I probably wont go back. I say probably because the course is great, but the staff is terrible. I have played this course at least a twenty times, always mid-week and usually after 1pm. I played here Friday 7/6/2016 before 11am as a threesome. I was shocked to find out that we had to take a cart since I booked online and there are no prices/information on the online booking system (yes, my mistake for not checking). I would rather walk or not play at all, but I was with two other guys and it was too late to back out. The pro shop told me I could take any cart I wanted out front, so I did. At the first tee, I asked the starter about the walking policy and he said "it is what it is". Not very helpful, but okay. I then pulled out three clubs to start stretching, to which the starter yelled over "theres no chipping on the green", as Im standing 10 feet away from the sign saying the same thing. I told him I was just stretching. Then the starter walks down to where I am and tells me I need to share a cart with a single player that is joining us. I said to the starter I was told I could take my own cart and I would prefer that. The starter got up in my face and said "whats the problem?" and I repeated I would prefer to take my own cart. He moved to within inches of me and said again "whats the problem?". So, I just shook my head (although I was pretty upset, and there was a very "awkward silence" in the group) and switched my bag to the single players cart. Once I had complied, the starter said "you can walk the front, but you have to pay for the cart, and you have to take the cart to the back nine". Okay, I get the desire to keep pace up and it is a long walk to the back nine, but this exchange with the starter was purely confrontational. He could have started off by explaining this. So, I started carrying clubs to my ball, and then switched to carrying my bag to my ball, but taking the cart between holes. Yes, I really prefer walking, and I think I was within the starters instructions. By the 13th hole, the ranger came up to me and said "you cannot not carry your bag, but you are allowed to carry a couple clubs and walk beside the cart". From this point on, the ranger followed our group and waited at each tee box while we teeed off. Our group was always in position, and waited on most tee boxes for the group ahead. I get the need for keeping up pace of play, but this type of behavior is nothing but harassment. I complained at the front desk about the starter being so aggressive and being followed by the ranger. The response was to not play on weekends (Fridays included). To which I said "or, not play here at all".

ASSAULTED AT BUTTER BROOK! I golfed here about a little over a month ago with my husband, father and brother. On the 18th hole, my brother hit his tee shot on to the neighboring fairway. He drove his cart to his ball not realizing until after he hit his second shot that he was past the “no carts” signs on that fairway. He immediately returned to the cart path. It was an honest mistake and no harm done. At this time a member who had been watching us from the clubhouse patio walked down to us and proceeded to SCREAM within inches of my brother’s face. A couple of the choice phrases he used: “You should have seen the f**king signs!”, “I’m a member here and I’m going to report you to the course manager and if I ever see your f**cking face here again I’m going to punch your f**cking face in!”. After we finished our round we immediately reported it to Peter Maki, the course pro, and pointed out the offending member. Peter showed genuine concern, gave us his information and told us to contact him any time and so he could “make things right”. Well, we have tried to contact Peter four or five times since then and we have yet to receive a response. Actions speak louder than words and his lack of action to our repeated inquiries speaks to the character of Butter Brook, which runs counter to the spirit of the game of golf (self-discipline, honesty, and integrity). I refuse to spend another dime at this place or recommend it to anyone. If you choose to patronize them, be on the lookout for a tall guy with black hair and an unusually black (likely dyed) moustache with anger management issues. He seems to think it is appropriate to approach and make threats to a group of golfers (one that included a senior citizen and a woman). And the management seems to think an appropriate course of action to a serious offense on their grounds is to just ignore it and hope it goes away.
