Even on a wet day this was a good course

I wasn't expecting it to rain much on the selected day I chose to play, but it did up to 10min after I arrived. After the rain stopped and other players left, I decided to go ahead and play still. I'm glad I did b/c it ended up being a smooth day on the course and didn't rain again until 10min after I finished the 18th hole. Maybe it was meant for me to use that day as a good day of practice. The staff was great while everyone who was there to play were also very friendly. I look forward to coming back to this course again in the near future.

Typical Municipal Course

I was able to hit everything in my bag. Tee boxes and fairways are in ok shape considering it’s been cold and the Bermuda grass is mostly dormant. Greens are good but could be much better is people would repair their pitch marks.

Course was in pretty good condition for this time of year. Greens have been aerated probably 3-4 weeks ago. You could see the lunch marks but it didn’t effect putting. A little bit of sand still on the greens but it really didn’t effect anything.

Always a pleasure

Played the round with a chap visiting from Scotland, and really enjoyed it. Course in good shape, particularly given the time of year. The clubhouse and cafe staff are always great, as is James, the starter. James is exactly the type of upbeat, personable starter a course needs, as he sets the tone for an enjoyable round. Pace of play was great. I’ll definitely be back.

Same today as always

Upon walking into the pro shop my score card, cart key and tee time was all layed out for me. This is a very effecient and well oiled operation. The staff is extremely friendly and lets you know that they appreciate you choosing Dogwood to golf. The golf course is always in excellent playing conditions including tee boxes, fairways, bunkers, and greens.

If you want to play golf in blue jeans...

This is the place. Played behind 3 elderly guys, who did not care how long it took to play. Many holes we were waiting for them to tee off, and they did not mind hitting 2-3 balls each until 1 hit a fairway. On several holes the group ahead of them was more than a full hole ahead, yet they never asked us to play thru. Several times they would play their fairway shot, head to the green, then turn around and come back down the fairway to pick up their other balls. Twice we accidentally hit into them due to this. Apparently fixing ball marks on the greens at Dogwood is reserved for those who actually like smooth greens.
