First time at Morgan Creek
Check in experience was great. We all chose to ride but the course is very walkable. Small driving range area for warming up, hitting off mats.
The course conditions weren't great. Fairways were ok, for the most part, but quite a few were over watered. It was very wet in some places, even resulting in balls plugging off the tee. If you ended up missing a fairway, the conditions deteriorated quickly. You'd find dry hard pan and patch grass. Sand traps were ok. Some were hard and others had standing water. The greens weren't in good condition. Very bumpy and wet. Lots of old ball marks that hadn't filled in. A couple greens had been plugged that morning, just around the edges. The plugs had spilled over onto the putting surface. The back nine was in better condition than the front nine.
Just an ok experience at Morgan Creek. I won't be back soon, until the conditions are a bit better. It is a challenging course, though. Narrow fairways. Accuracy is rewarded.
Sand traps were mostly dirt overgrown with grass and there is a lot of them. Large portions of course dead grass or dirt. No hole Information markers. Layout was confusing, water hazards dried up. Most greens were pitted and covered with goose droppings. Lots of golf cart damage, poor signage for driving on course, extremely dangerous terrain for driving and walking. Even at a “hot deal” prince not worth the money.
A lot of dead areas around greens, even fringes were just dirt sometimes. Could get the same experience on a local muni course for cheaper.
The drought is having its toll
Love the layout and it was a perfect day, but the fairways are getting in rough shape, the greens slow and over watered, and worst of all the bunkers were simply terrible. nearly hardpan with 1/2 of heavy wet sand throughout the course. nearly impossible to play a proper bunker shot. I didn't realize sand was a hard to find commodity these days.
On balance they are overcharging given the current conditions, there are other courses for the price in better shape locally.
Very slow play
Played as a single, teed off by myself . No one in front of me. At the turn came up to the 10 hole. 2 groups playing the hole , a threesome waiting on the box. The three players played slowly, by the 12th hole, they were behind 1 and a half holes. No Marshall on the course ended up by passing them on 13 . Round took 5 hours.
I can't too happy with the group in front of us, we waited between 10-15 minutes at every hole for them to move forward. But overall I'm happy I get to play.
Nice course overall. Ground was wet and spongy in areas of the fairways and around greens.
Sand bunkers or cement?
This course was in rough conditions… the rakes were out in the bunkers but it looks like the maintenance crew has touched them since before covid. They were rock solid and nearly unplayable. This course used to be beautiful but I’m not sure what happened.
I played yesterday , the last time was a couple of years ago. The hot weather is taking its toll on the course. Good greens, great layout, but lots of very dry areas around greens
Great Value at Morgan Creek!
I've played this course 10+ times and always enjoy the difference between the front 9 and back 9. If I didn't know better I'd think they were 2 different golf courses.
