What happened?

Ancil Hoffman is my favorite course in town and I play it often. It hasn’t rained in months and we’re in a drought. This last round we played lift, clean and place because the course is a muddy mess. Why is the course so overwatered? I rarely see the course this wet in the middle of winter.
It’s a great course but I would not recommend it until they fix the irrigation problem

Greens still bumpy after being punched two weeks prior

Course is in very good condition. Other than the greens were a little bit bumpy, more than I expected after two weeks. Should be good in another week or so.

Really good course

Unfortunately, greens had been punched and were not in good condition. This was not mentioned when I had called the course.

Fairways also were not in good condition-likely due to last two weeks of hot weather

Best public course in the area

The conditions are really good for the season. Played during 100 degree temps. Don’t see too many burnt out areas.
