Ssssssh at Whispering

Always a good round. Course was a little rough between aeration and unreplaced divots. Drainage/mud is never a problem. Staff very friendly. We always enjoy a brat after 9 holes, but the halfway cafe was CLOSED.

Taken over by geese

I love playing at Whisper Creek. I played there 5 times this golf season. The problem that last two times I have played is that the greens are slow. Then today the geese were out in force and several greens were inundated with droppings from the geese. And when I last played there a week ago today there were only a few geese. Then I hit a small bucket of balls and the mats are in terrible shape. Several were warped. This will probably be the last time I play there this season and it's because I'm afraid that goose droppings will just increase.

Cold day for golf

I have played WC 4 times this season. As always the staff was very friendly and allowed me and my partner to tee off on 10 because there was a group of 20 players who were teeing off on the front. The only complaint I would have is that a few of the bunkers were not playable and the greens were slow. But other than that it was a great day to play.

Mower broke?

The greens were the poorest I have putted on all season.
Watching the putts bounce along the green was very amusing at first...but became frustrating.

Good Course with Potential

A great course that has all the potential to be a true 5 star gem. Friendly staff and nice range with electric carts. Course played great and set up well. Would love to see the greens rolling a bit faster but previous rain definitely played a roll. Greens have a great sense of undulation but the grain caught a bit. Overall worth the value and doesn’t make you feel like you’re playing a community course

Enjoyable Outing

teeboxes fairways and greens in good condition. several challenging holes make it more enjoyable. electric carts are a plus. average pace of play. the course description should be updated. there's no white sand in the bunkers and no pyramid balls on the driving range.

Nice course to play

This is a nice course to play. However after careful consideration and fairness I feel that the cost to play on a weekend is a bit over the top because the carts are not equipped with GPS features and th he sand traps really require some clean/sifted sand in just about all their sand traps. .

Not what it used to be

This course has really gone downhill. Pretty nice layout with a couple of tricked up holes. The greens were pretty beat up. Pace of play was pretty slow.

Good course but very slow round

I have played this course for more than 15 years. The layout is a good one and the course condition was good although greens were a little beat up. Very disappointed in pace of play as the round took 4 hours 45 minutes when it wasn't crowded and even asked course staff to intervene with slow play.
