overall good

Greens need work and rolled. the ball bounces when trying to putt on them. More sand on them would help to mend them during this time.

Still Amazing…Punched Greens

Although the greens were punched, they sanded greens are getting there. I think in about 2 weeks it will be back almost all the way if not on the money. I love the track and had a good time playing today. Fairways and tee boxes are in good condition.

Candler Hills

I will not play at this course again. The attendants and some of the staff were rude and not encouraging. One staff person came to us after we had played and balled us out for having the cart too close to the green. My playing partner had a recent hip replacement and can't get around too well. He was using the handicap flag but to the attendant we were like criminals.
I understand a private club having many rules, but with public playing-a little customer service goes a long way.
