No longer worth the money

I love this course and have played it a lot. After such bad weather, it had dried out and the debris had been removed. The fairways and tee boxes were in terrible shape, greens were not bad.
I also had the first tee time of the day and had a decent front nine as far as pace of play. At the turn, they had multiple foursomes starting on the back nine. There was no structure, organization, or started facilitating this. I start at the earliest possible to have limited delays, and I ended up with more than a 3 hour back nine with the brutal groups ahead after front nine. I am not a stuck up golfer and could care less how "good" anyone is, but hitting multiple shots, marking 2 ft putts and having no Marshalls anywhere around was very disappointing.
Again, I love this course, but it is substantially higher priced than other area courses that have better course management and pace of play.

Fun round

Despite a major storm that just passed the course was in good condition. The bunkers were full of water, but that was expected. Slow round, the Marshall needs to be a little more proactive. Enjoyed the round though.

The day after…

A major storm blew thru the area the day before. Lots of downed tree’s and standing water. Despite this the course was in good shape.

Natural beauty

The nature walk experience at Mather was incredible. The great blue heron, red hawks and geese were memorable. But the double rainbow on the 18th tee was an iconic moment.

Cold winter round but still a great round of golf.

Our round started at 12:30 and the temps were in the low 60's by 3pm it really cooled off. Having extra clothes in the bag really helped out. Tee's were pretty good, fairways were ok, but the greens were awesome. Really fast and challenging.

Nice course, course manager needs some work.

Course was in great shape and the greens were great. Had an unfortunate interaction with another group and the course manager. One of our group hit a drive on 9 we lost sight of it, and turned out it kicked out the trees towards another group coming up 1. Our guy went over and apologized for not yelling fore, but one member of the foursome would not accept it and they had a verbal altercation. Our player proceeded to ignore him, took a practice swing, then played his ball back into our fairway. Turns out the guy called the pro shop and one of them came out and met us at the 9th green. The other guy embellished the tale (of course) and said our guy was verbally abusive and swung a club at him. We explained what happened and still were told if it happened again we’d be asked to leave. Not sure if these guys were pals or what, but I’ve never been threatened with expulsion from a golf course for a simple mistake. I guess in this age of Karen’s I should expect it. Otherwise, it was a great day!
