Somebody Should

Somebody should open up a golf course here.
What a cluster "F" for pro-shop management. Totally clueless and rude.
They advertise three days of First Come First Served ... then when you try to check in they claim they are packed / over booked and had a shotgun. What kind of idiot advertises 3 days of "First Come First Served" and then has an 11 AM shotgun. (Such BS)
The sign on the door says "Masks Required" but the blond behind the counter is "special" so doesn't wear one. A defiant violation of State Mandate and irresponsible behavior.

Terrible pace of play

Terrible golfer mgmt in terms of pace of play. Tee-times seemed irrelevant. People just teed off whenever they got to the tbox. Greens were nice, but many tboxes were so chewed up and muddy with no flat ground to setup. Disappointing. Also wasn't aware they didn't allow walking on the wknd because when I prepaid the rounds, prices were advertised a "walking price", but when we got there they told us walking wasn't allowed on wknds. Trust me, walkers aren't the reason there's slow play out there. Haha. I won't be back. Too many better options to play....

Nice Local Course

The Ponds is a reasonably easy course. The course does have some challenging holes, but for the most part, is relatively open. I started the round pretty well. I would say, I had a T-Time at 3:21, in the pro-shop, he said there wasn't anyone ahead of me so I could head out. I got to the first t-box, and two guys came up in a cart and went ahead of me. I don't know if they actually had a T-time or just showed up and went out. Didn't matter to me all that much....just kind of strange. The day was beautiful tho a bit hot, not a lot of breeze. Everything was in pretty good shape! I wish people would fix their ball marks, nice true greens, but so many marks.

Walked

Course is in great shape!

I walked 9 early in the morning and the humidity, along with no breeze made for a tougher round as the bugs were aplenty. Course itself was in great shape overall. Being the first time I've walked the 'Red' course, some of the distances between greens to the next tee box was farther than I would have liked on a day like that. The people working the course were pleasant to deal with and the couple of employees I came across that were mowing the fairways and greens were very courteous as I played my way around them.
