So Many Leaves!

Don't get attached to your golf ball this time of year! There were so many leaves that even your good shot often wound up a lost ball. But, the greens were in great shape!

Greens were immaculate

This was my second time playing the course in 4 weeks. The greens were perfect. Overall the course was in good condition. Front and Back 9 play completely different. Front 9 wide fairways and back 9 tight narrow fairways. Overall Challenging and enjoyable.

goose droppings and no water

goose droppings on 11,13,and 18 made it tough to putt. had to move my ball on 18 to get an open space to putt at the hole. it was 68 degrees out there and the water container on 17 was empty. gotta do better than that. i told the young man in the pro shop about the droppings and he was indifferent.

Tight but fair course

The course has narrow fairways and unkept bunkers but greens are in great shape and course is a great value for the money. Easy to walk as no hills and short distance to next tee. Played the blue tees which were only 6000 yards in total. Would play it again.

Very poor conditions. Cart paths are in bad shape, greens slow, construction on the course with no warning, grass trimming sporadic.

Surprised

I haven't played Bow Creek in awhile because of the poor conditions, but wanted to play 1 last time before they closed. I was pleasantly surprised with the excellent conditions. Fairways and greens were in amazing shape. Will definitely be back as I found out that they WILL NOT be closing until next year

Great Municipal Course

Played the back 9, which is in great condition and just challenging enough to keep you coming back. Unfortunately, the snack bar is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Fun course

The course was really fun today as it was dry. It does not drain well and stays wet for days after a rain. Other than that, the course has always been in good shape.
