Knolls Golf Course (The)
A 1977 construction date means mature trees line the fairways of this 18-hole, public course. Water hazards and bunkers prove challenging in places, although a few well-placed drives can help you stay a few strokes under the par 72. Warm up on the driving range or ask the on-site golf pro for pointers. The clubhouse offers a full-service bar and snacks.
Great location, yet extremely overcrowded; Our threesome waited 15 minutes in the clubhouse for an employee to show up [for our Saturday (5:04pm) tee time)], along with 2 other groups. Eventually all 3 groups left and went to play other courses in the area. It appeared that only 2 young men (teenagers) were working and their time was spent managing carts. Moreover, there were 3 additional foursome waiting on the 1st tee box. Don''t bother making a tee time as it means absolutely nothing at Knolls!
I live here in Omaha since moving from Scotland and I think the knolls is an average course and whats the deal letting a 5 ballplay thats pathetic,Johnny Goodman is miles ahead of any course in the area.
I'm a golfer from Florida and love it. While visiting in Omaha I golfed at the Knolls. My experience was ok upon arrival, until I ran into one of the owners. She had horrible customer service and seemed not to care about my business. This individual was rude and had a bad attitude. This establishment would be better off without that manager. I hope that no one has the experiance that I had that day. If you want to have a good business, it is a good idea to have intelligent management running it.
OUR corporate outings started over 1 hour late for the last two years. They schedule two outings in one day so there are lots of issues, parking lot full, not wheel chair accessible, poor service on serving food to a large group, didn't inform participants dinner drinks were paid for, and worst of all the over 1 hour late start for our outing...twice. Our participants waited and waited...not good for a charity fund raiser event. We learned our lesson and have selected another course for our outing in 2008.
The golf course was not as bad as the title that i wrote, but the OWNERSHIP, WAS RUDE AND ACTED LIKE THEY DIDN'T NEED MY BUSINESS, I WILL NEVER PLAY THERE AGAIN, AND SINCE THIS IS A LEASED GOLF FACILITY FROM THE CITY OF OMAHA I WILL BE LETTING THEM KNOW AS WELL. I CANNOT STRESS HOW RUDELY I WAS TREATED.
What a horrible golf experience! The course is in awful shape, I don't think they know the meaning of a fairway. The design is lacking in many respects, hole #7 should be played down hole #6 (I would say the fairway of 6 but it is more like #6's pasture. There is no topography on the front nine, and power lines come into play on every hole. The staff is rude, hey guys clubhouse staff shouldn't wear jeans and basketball shorts even if all the patrons do. The Knolls claims that 10ft tall saplings are mature trees lining the fairways(sorry theres that f-word again) pastures, the only mature trees on the course line a creek that comes into play on maybe one shot for the good golfer, any player with skill will pay no heed to the trees lining the front nine and bomb away. Go a few blocks south and play Miracle Hills, it has a friendly staff and a nice classic tree-lined layout with lots of topography and trees that have actually hit pubertree.
I played last week and the course is in great shape. They are still mowing greens, tees and fairways in order to provide the best conditions to play on this time of year. Keep up the good work and I'll be back. Thanks for a great experience.
The Knolls golf course has come along ways in the last year. The course conditions are great and the greens are the best you can find in public golf in Omaha. Keep up the good work and the Knolls will be the best by far.
