Great track

The greenback course was in great shape today. Greens were nicely manicured and the different cuts of fringe and rough were done well. Cups were in excellent condition. I was early this morning 7:20 tee time. Played solo. Took 2.5 hours to play 18. Awesome course. Will definitely go again. Always a morning time for me. Afternoons I hear it can get a little slow out there

The BUNKERS

The maintenance of the bunkers is horrible! No sand, weeds growing out of them.

The BUNKERS

Good course except the bunkers are in bad shape, no sand, not maintained, weeds. If golfers are expected to play out of these then the maintenance crew needs to put some effort in.

Good course

This course, as well as many in the area, has got to start maintaining the bunkers and sand traps. If we are now expected to play out of these courses must put the effort into making them playable post pandemic.

Divots

The par 3's are like a war zone, no sand to fix the divots.
I get it because of Covid, but send someone out at least once or twice a week to fill the divots marks

Normally fine but....

We have played this course many times. We have found that in the last year the greens are in much poorer condition that has been prior. Pace of play has also been fairly slow as of late

Easy to walk.

Good course with plenty of challenges. Easy to walk. Greens punched recently so greens were slow and bumpy. Fairways in great shape, but bunkers haven't been raked recently. Would play again.

didnt tell me they just sanded the greens

No one mentioned that the greens were just sanded when I called and made our tee time the day before. Charged full price and putting was a joke.
