Great bones - raise the maintenance budget

I hadn’t played Pine Forest in years, and it was still a great value and i still really enjoyed the course routing and shot values. But it would really benefit from a bigger maintenance budget.

Good value, but so-so conditions

Greens were bumpy and slow, difficult to get putts to track. Some bare spots in fairways. The layout is interesting and scenery pleasing. I had a good rate from Hot Deal so overall it was a good value for the round.

Really?

This course needs management that understands how to maintain a golf course. I don’t even care about fairways and tee boxes but the greens can not be carpet. The greens are the most important part of golf because thats where you score but it’s impossible when they are as hairy as they are. Why are they not mowing and rolling them?! It’s been like this for nearly 5 years and I can’t possibly explain how frustrating it is to hope for this course to be playable but it simply isn’t. I grew up playing this course and to see where it is now is so infuriating. Used to be one of the funnest courses but now it’s the worst course I have ever played.

fix the fairways please

I like this course for the most part, but certain fairways continue to be in very poor shape (18 is worst, but 2 was bad as well--muddy puddles (and I can't recall when it rained last). And certain cart path situations have needed some minor fixes for months. My playing partner said it's the last time he wants to play it, it's so bad.

Disappointing

Greens were shaggy and rough. “Fairways” were largely nonexistent on several holes. The layout was interesting but the pace was so slow we gave up on the back nine.

Needs Seeding & Maintenance

They need seed course and repair bald spots in fairways. Maintainance guy spent more time in his phone than working in the course.

The course has great bones, but needs a little help. One idea, send each cart out with seed and soil mix asking players to help fill bald spots - heck, you might even ask for a few bucks form each player.

Greens need help, dead limbs need to be cut and cleared, maintenance staff needs to get off their phones and work!

Great location, good bones, just Leeds a little work

The course needs a lot of work.

The layout is interesting and has real challenges. But the fairways are dry and most shots are from tight lies. The greens were not mowed and so slow and bouncy as to make putting a joke.

Has good potential BUT!

Wow !
Worse golf course I ever had experience.
The green is fuzzy and bumpy and fairway is like random patch of like sand box . Absolutely terrible .but has good potential. It could be very nice place.
Hopefully improve the course .
