Must Be Avoided

I had played Brandywine Bay a year or two ago. At that time, it was in pretty good condition. What a difference a year or two makes.
The Pro Shop staff was quite pleasant and friendly. We went to the driving range to find a field with a "hitting area" that was over grown with weeds. It hadn't been mowed in some time and was difficult to find any area where one could even hit balls from. That should have been our first clue.
I found the entire course to be in fair to poor condition. Most tee boxes were "OK" but the fairways were covered with weeds, hadn't been mowed in awhile and it was difficult to even define the fairway boundaries.The bunkers were mostly hard pan and not in good shape.
The greens had also not been mowed in awhile and were quite slow. Of greater concern were the bald spots and diseased turf on many of the greens, especially on the back nine. Several holes actually had grass growing all around the hole and had not been changed in a long time.
The basic course layout is interesting and even fun but the current management has let this course deteriorate into one that should be avoided at all cost. To ask for a $64.00 green fee at Brandywine Bay is ridiculous at best. Shame on us for playing it.
Our group enjoyed a cold beer at the 19th hole and all toasted the fact that we would NEVER return to this facility.

Staff very friendly. Fairways excellent. Greens (minus one) above average. Many houses to hit if you're a hacker. Rapid pace of play very enjoyable.

Greens Condition

The greens were inconsistent sometimes a little slow and sometimes very slow . I think it was caused by the heat they were trying to save some greens by letting the grass grow higher

First Time

This is the first time I have played the course. We had a great time and the pace of play was good. We finished 18 holes in 3:45, but could have been even faster but there were a couple of foursomes ahead of us. Most of the greens were in good shape. There are some fun and interesting holes on the course. The tee shot on 18 is a great opportunity for risk/reward if you take it between the trees. The GPS in the cart is always helpful on a course you don't know. When we are back in the area, we will play this course again.
