Played from the white tees, nearly 5600 yards was a bit too long for this high handicapper. But the course was in fine condition, especially the large greens....the fairways were cut close but had spots of weeds and the rough was pretty high. Lots of water and sand could catch a stray shot. The highlight of my round was making a par in regulation on the par 5 finishing hole.....looking forward to returning again soon.....

Afternoon golf

Secrets out. The course is no longer empty Ayer noontime. It was one of the pleasures of golfing during the hottest part of the day, empty course. But as summer slides by I found myself behind at least 4 groups on the three holes ahead of me on the back nine. It took an hour on front nine & over two hours on back nine. Oh well. Course is still a pleasure to play at anytime.

Worst Course Conditions Ever

I've been playing for around 55 years and I don't think I've ever played a course in worst condition than this one. Even a recently aerated course would be better than this one. Tee boxes were full of weeds, lack of grass, and very uneven . Fairway probably had not been mowed for at least a couple weeks - evident with the clumps of long grass with 10' sprouts/shoots. Dead spots and dirt all over the fairways tee to green. Traps were hard compacted sand. Greens were littered with "pock marks" - they weren't ball marks. Not a single map or diagram of each hole was available anywhere - score card included. Had to look it up externally. NO water available on the course despite having some fancy box holders every 3-4 tee boxes for those water cooler/dispensers. Snack bar staff was rude. 2pm at the turn and were told nothing available but leftover breakfast stuff since they were closing at 5pm. 3hrs to close and you can't make a few hotdogs?! No Gatorade at all. Pop and water only. Now for the only good thing.... the course layout itself was actually very good and enjoyable. This is a semi-private course in a gated community. I'd think the residents/members would be completely upset how this (assumed) once very nice course has gone very far downhill. Being mid-summer and any Covid related excuses should not be expressed.

Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve and are working diligently to improve the course. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you again soon.

Weeds everwhere

I felt compelled to warn everyone that there is a tremendous amount of weed growth on this course. We had to agree to place every ball because of the weeds. There were some areas of the course (ie over the greens) that there was no reasonable spot to place the ball within a 30 yard circle. I will not play here again. Its a shame because I always enjoyed the layout but every time I play it is worse.

Grounds a mess

Most of the holes had packed mud around the greens. Everything off the fairways were the same thing. Bunkers are packed mud and unplayable. This course used to be so well maintained but now it is so bad it is not enjoyable. Will wait at least 6 months before going back. Hopefully by then they will bring it back to what they charge to play.
