Late season

Played Oct 28 one week before close. Lots of wet areas with no carts allowed on a few holes. Greens were fairly fast and treated so not the usual ultra quick mid season conditions. Power carts take a beating with paths in poor condition. Some great holes and will play it again.

Maintenance

Paid top dollar for fall golf. The greens were covered in debris. Plus you get a good dose of attitude from the staff....I doubt the members are treated the same way.

They need to trim the rough better. Grass is so long it is hard to find the ball if your not on the fairway. Other than that course is wonderful
