Odd greens are burnt

Course is in actual in good shape. The even greens were slow like the usually are but rolled well. They looked good and had good grass. Fairways were in great shape and even had a bunker shot that the sand was good.

The odd greens were burnt though. They tried a new fertilizer on the odd greens to test it out, and destroyed them. Huge burnt spots of missing grass. Impossible to putt on.

Value course if played on "Hot Deal"

Layout of course provides a challenge if played from the blue tees and the overall upkeep is acceptable; however, paying full price is a letdown because this course is mediocre.

Great public venue

I play this course on a regular basis. The greens have had a few issues in the past, but now they are coming around quite nicely. Approach shots check up, and the speed of the greens are way more consistent compared to a few months ago. As always, the staff is overly friendly and pace of play is around 4 hours including weekend play.

Unacceptable Pace of Play

If your looking for a 5+ hour round of golf. This is the place to be at. We waited at every tee box for 10-15 minutes on the front nine. Two groups in front of us were hitting multiple tee shots and giving lessons during the entire front 9. I called the clubhouse 2 times and talking to Marshall about this particular group, but they wouldn't improve the groups pace. It took 3 hours for the front 9, then I spoke to the guy in clubhouse, and they said ”I don't know what we could of done, sometimes it happens” This absolutely unacceptable from the staff. The marshal has one job, and he can’t even tell a group to pick up the pace. Luckily that group left after the front and we finished the back in a hour and a half.

I WILL NOT RETURN TO VIEUX, UNBELIEVABLE STAFF. STAFF ONLY CARES ABOUT MAXIMIZING THE AMOUNT OF GOLFERS.

Nice course/unfriendly staff

I get during these unprecedented rules on courses are more strict. It would be helpful if the staff were more friendly at getting across their message instead of being sarcastic and rude.

COURSE NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

AT LEAST 5 HOLES WERE CPO AND THE COURSE HAS HAD SEVERAL DAYS TO DRY OUT. GREENS PAINSTAKINGLY SLOW AND BUMPY. OLD MUNICIPAL COURSE WITH NOT A LOT OF CHARACTER. WORTH PLAYING FOR UNDER $25 WITH CART AND EVEN BETTER UNDER $20.

Vieux Chenes

This course should have been closed. It was way too wet and nasty. The back nine was closed so we were only able to play the front. I will avoid playing this course no matter the price. Terrible!!!

Love this course!!!!!!!!!!! My main home course!!!!

Les Vieux Chenes is my home course. It is very well set up and it is great for the average player. I play once a week with my friends and we enjoy playing this course because it offers challenges that may differ each week. The fairways and greens are pretty good and the course itself is well kept. Sometimes, at the 6th hole on a heavy day, you may get a bottle neck because someone wants to try to go for the green, but other than that, the course is a good paced course. We normally play 5 players and finish without any interruptions in 3.75 to 4.15 hours. The staff is very friendly and they all know us well. They take the time to get to know the customers. I am sure everyone will enjoy their play at this course.

First Time Playing

Overall, fun course to play that was in very good condition. 90 degree rule made the day go by a little longer, however, definitely understood why it was in effect for the day because of the rain from previous days. Not sure if there are normally a ton of people that walk the course or if it was just a rare occasion on this day but there were a ton out there which slowed down the pace of place. Anyways, I definitely would recommend this course .

Course in great shaoe. Wish they woukd stop allowing groups with more than 4 players, always groups of regulars with 5 or 6 players that cause everybody else to wait. The old fellas that play every day here ruin it for those that are lucky to play once in a while.
