Rainy Day Wednesday

When pulling into the course I saw only about three groups on the front nine. The radar showed no rain around the course. On checking in I was told to go and have a good round, no one else had showed up.
I got in about 3 holes before it pored, then another 4 before it poured again. Pretty much the pattern for the entire round.

Ok

The greens were in good shape except for one or two of them fairways were just ok and the tee boxes too. With just a little maintenance it would actually step up to a great course

The course overall was in terrible shape

Course was in bad shape. The green somewhere not too bad some were terrible. They have no Fairways they have weed ways. I think they should have paid me money to play.

Hot and Dry

The greens have been punched and sanded so putting is a bit on the iffy side at present. Due to the unusually dry month the fairway grass is sparse and in some places gone entirely. As we enter the summer rainy season things should improve. Weeds and crabgrass on the fairways need to be addressed also as this is an ongoing condition at this course. I will say that since new owners have taken over there has been improvements made.

Going through transition, owners working hard

The owners are always working on course. You can tell they are going through transition and working on condition. Give them time. Fairways are a little thin but in time they will turn around. Greens and collars are great. They were rolling greens when I was playing

Spruce Creek Preserve, a hidden gem of a course

Love playing at Spruce Creek. Always a good deal. Nice course layout, friendly folks. Stop in the clubhouse after your round, good sandwiches and cold draft beer.

Needs some TLC

First off the folks in the clubhouse are very helpful and great to deal with.
The course is dry and the greens are starting to show a lot of stress. Many dry crusty areas on about half of the greens and the fairways need water also. For example the green on #12, about one third looks like a dried up lake bed, broken and crusty.
Perhaps the rainy season will help out, but until then I will play other courses in the area.

Summer Will Be A Problem

Course is starting to show summer conditions like many Florida courses when over seed dies out. Fairways very thin or little grass greens some are showing dying grass on edges. Course will need some serious work!

Course is a little overworked

Fairways and areas adjacent are weed infested or bare sand. Course looks like it has been overworked and needs some TLC. Greens were a mixed bag with some in very poor shape and others in reasonable condition. An inexpensive good outing, but the course is among the worst for condition I have seen this year.
