Poor Maintenance

I’ve played here a handful of times and I won’t return. The course is poorly maintained and the cart path is in need of repair. The mosquitoes are abound which is very distracting and an unpleasant experience. The staff is friendly but no rangers help move the pace along. So much potential but no upkeep.

I’m disappointed with this course.

Great course but too slow

Being 25 minutes behind teeing off on hole 1 is not a good start. Especially when your tee time is before 8:15 AM. That just doesn’t make sense. Be ready to wait every hole if you are playing on the weekend. Other than that the course & staff are great.

Brutal roughs and slow play

every time I’ve played this course it’s been abnormally overbooked and you can expect to wait at least 10 minutes for another group per hole. Nearly impossible to get 18 holes in unless you have an early tee time and don’t mind playing a 5.5-6 hour round. Conditions of the fairways and greens were solid, the roughs hadn’t been maintained in a while from the looks.

Great tee shots that took a bad bounce would instantly disappear in the thick rough, making for a very frustrating round.

If they maintain the place a bit better and don’t over book tee times to make an extra Buck, this place could be great.

6 hour round is pathetic!

If you have almost 6 hours for 18 holes on a Saturday afternoon then this is the course for you. Rangers are useless with ushering the slow groups ahead. Course conditions have improved but it does not make up for 30 minutes from the time I hit my first tee shot on 1 til my first tee shot in 2. Don't play here if you don't have at least 6 hours to spare.

Walked

I have played this course many times so I now know what to expect. The thing that bothers me most is that even when going as a single there is absolutely no chance of finishing a full round in under 5 hours. I played 11 holes yesterday (1-9, 10, 18) and it took 3 hours 50 minutes. They really need to figure out how to speed up the pace. Other than that, the course was in decent shape for this time of year.

Spring golf

I found the course to be in reasonable shape, with some aeration of tees and fairways. The greens are inconsistent speed wise, but decent.

The course is great

The whole experience was good except for feeling a little rushed or was like our tee times were too bunched together. Other than that it was great.

Classic layout and greens

Split Rock has challenging track,good length,very good greens in good shape especially for Early March, classic undulations with Elephant humps but fait pin placements. Bunkers have good sand although unkempt during winter.
Condition improved by present management. I’ve played course for 50 years.

Greens

Classic ply contoured green we’re in superb condition especially considering end of winter.
This is an excellent track reflecting classic design and age.
