Rick Murphy Golf Academy Reviews & Ratings
Nice practice facility. Bunkers need a better spot. Great for pitching, putting and chipping
If zero stars was an option, thats what I would rate my experience. I walked in to see a man behind the counter reading a magazine.(no big deal, as there was nobody inside but him) There was no greeting.... no hello, no how ya doing, nothing. I buy my range balls and drink, and go outside. I realized I needed some clubs re-gripped after I was finished, so go back inside to check out the selection. (Again, nothing from the guy behind the counter). I ask him about turnaround time and pick my grips. He went to the back to check the stock, and walked back to the counter. (No small talk or pleasantries, but no big deal) At that time, a gentleman comes in from outside and says hes having trouble with the ball dispenser. (They were on a first name basis, so the obviously knew each other) At this point, Ive got my clubs on the counter, expecting to fill out whatever paperwork necessary and pay the $60 for my 4 grips, when he comes out from behind the counter, and follows the man outside to help with the ball dispenser. There was no "I'll be right back", Can you give me 1 second sir", "excuse me for a second"....NOTHING. I took my clubs and walked out. The absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced. They will never get another dime from me!
Nice driving range with optional short game area to practice chipping. If you hit a bucket, short game area is only $3 more. Putting green with multiple cups. Friendly staff and golf pros available for lessons. Nice pro shop. Best range locally. Could be a little cheaper but not unreasonable.
Just finished my first visit. Clubhouse is well stocked with all your golf needs. The range is fantastic if you're looking to get it some practice. If you're in the neighborhood, give it the proverbial shot!
Just read the replies to the reviews that was posted by the GM Bo Watson and what he's saying is 100% LIES! I frequented this facility because it was close to my job until recently when I was told that I have to pay an additional $3 to putt on their greens even if I'm only going to putt for 5 minutes on my way out the door. And if don't hit a bucket and only want to putt...I get to pay $7 for that privilege. Oh and btw, the greens are among the worst I've ever seen. There are large patches of crabgrass or something growing all over it that make it impossible to get a true roll unless you line your ball up in order to putt around them. I sent Bo an email this week when I was accosted by the employee about having to pay to putt after I just spent $8 on a SMALL bucket (that's right, I said $8...for a SMALL bucket). His response? I'm still waiting. Nothing. No response. I've played at a lot of courses and hit at a lot of ranges in my 44 years and I can't remember ever having to pay to putt on a practice green. Good luck with your new price (gouging) model. I won't be back!
