Poor conditions

This was simply the worst conditions I have ever seen on any course anywhere I have played. The greens were dirt with bums and gouges in them. Some of them had spin marks from golf carts. It was unfortunate GolfNow is advertising this course as an option

Sad!

We have not play Genelefe in over a year and we had hoped that they had made some improvements but sadly it was in worse condition than it was a year ago. It is ashamed that this course has gotten into this condition.

The absolute worst course I have ever played in my life!

This course sucks. There is NO Grass on the greens. They are dirt with a few patches of Grass with sand pits, mud, animal burrows and weeds. The tees are terrible as are the fairways. It is a shame they charge money to play this goat path.

Horrible

You can't really call this a golf course anymore. There's not a blade of grass on the dried mudflats that used to be the greens. The fairways and tees are not any better. This was once a great course but now wouldn't serve as a goat farm. Are they planning on selling this land off to housing developers? They certainly aren't putting any money into maintaining it as a golf course.

South Course

Unfortunately there does not seem to be any irrigation at present and the greens were completely burnt and terrible condition. Disappointing considering the images still on their website.

Worst golf course I have ever played!!!!

This course is a joke! In 40 years I have never played on such a poorly maintained golf course! It is absolutely disgusting that they have the nerve to charge any money!
Never waste your time or money to play this course!!!!

This course has the potential to be an exceptional course but it needs a lot of TLC. The greens were dried out and bumpy. The fairways dry. This was our first time playing this course

Shame about the greens!

We played a 3 hour 5 minute twosome round starting about 11.30 am.

Fabulous layout and friendly service spoilt by virtually unplayable greens.

Check out greens condition before wasting your time and money

Getting better

This used to be a very nice course. I love the layout.
The last time I played here I said never again, but I couldn’t resist the price for a last minute round. It still has along way to go but it was much improved since last year. Here’s hoping the new management continues to invest in this course..
