Slow Play

Common theme every time I play at Mather: too many people playing, pace of play is 5 hours, tee times are 8 minutes apart, constant delays in teeing off (20 minutes late). Players refuse to rake bunkers and fix ball marks on the greens.

Disappointed

First time playing this course rolled up 20 minutes before my teatime ready to go get to the Teebox there’s four groups backed up and we don’t tee off until 15 minutes after the scheduled time. Normally that would be fine but when your teatime is at 1:58 and they don’t take off until 215 now you’re paying for a full round of golf that you do t get because of them and their poor management. At the turn the cafe is closed at 4 so no food or drink available. The course itself is actually very well-maintained I was surprised the greens are definitely hard to read some or a bit fast but otherwise course maintenance was actually impressive for a county operated course. The reason I wouldn’t recommend it is because of the poor management of players and course time the excuse was they had tournaments and it was a very busy day my suggestion is don’t be greedy then and stop taking everybody’s money knowing that you won’t be able to provide them with the 18 hole round that you paid for.

Large fairways

Very nice golf course being well-maintained. Key box is fairways and greens we’re in very good condition. This was the first time at this course, will definitely be coming back.

Well-tended fairways

Countryside views on this course, made the afternoon so peaceful. Turkeys, rabbits and golfers soaked up the rays of sunshine.
Thanks for tending the fairways and greens so meticulously! This course is a gem.

Fall Golf

Overall course in good shape. Some dry areas in the fairways. If I hit the fairway in a dry area, I would take a drop onto grass. Not there to hurt myself. Tight lies around greens, bump and run order of the day, hard to get close when short sided. Greens where firm, not all cut the same, hard to read, but extremely fair.. Overall a great golf experience.
