5 1/2 hour round on a hot day no fun…We were the first group behind a junior tournament…All the junior girls were walking in threesomes…5 1/2 hours is too long in the heat for a senior citizen…Course itself was difficult but in nice shape for a public course…I would not recommend this course if you are looking for a 4 hour round.
‘Beautiful views of the city
It is a mature old course with mature grass and trees. The greens were in great shape. The carts and cart paths make for a very bumpy ride. On a hot day the dirt is blown up from the cart in front. Overall a fun day.
Played this course a long time ago and it was a little run down but just recently played and was very surprised to see how nice this course has become. Who ever is taking care of the course should get an award for how nice the fairways and greens are. Has lots of hills so if you are walking be prepared for a workout, would not recommend this course for anyone who is just beginning to learn golf unless you like challenges.
Terrible pace of play
Didnt tee off till 15 minutes after tee time, rather than put the twosome ahead of me with me starter let them go out ahead, they were slowere than the two foursomes ahead. Walked off after two holes
Pace of Play Still a Problem
I had not played the course in five years because of course conditions and pace of play issues but I wanted to check out the renovated course. Big mistake.
How the course is set up and managed ensures a long slog around the course. The slowest round of golf I have played in years.
As it stands now, it's simply not a course I can come back to because of the pace of play.
My playing partner and I teed off 20 minutes late for a mid-morning tee time (starter was doing other things) and it took 4:20 to play just 15 holes. We skipped a par 5 and a par 4 on the front and a par 5 on the back because of slow play.
There was a 1.5 hole gap on the front but with no ranger, the entire front nine was at a near standstill. I'll also note no beverage cart on a holiday with a pretty full tee sheet?
In addition, there are a lot of casual and beginner golfers at this course which is great. Wirth needs to make this game a little more enjoyable by cutting down the rough, which was way too thick, and widening fairways on most holes.
The pace of play would pick up, people would shoot better scores and have more fun, leading to repeat business. (Know your customer).
The course was in good shape, the rough aside, and the greens were quite good but a bit slow.
The renovated bunkers were nicely done and offers character back to when the course was initially built.
The new par 3 12th is short but good although another bunker behind the green should have been built. Players tip: don't go long and play the yardage as is despite it being an uphill shot. Long is dead.
The par 4 18th is a very nice finishing hole with a shot at birdie if you can hit the fairway. The fairway is wider than it appears from the tee box.
But in the end, the good finishing hole ends up being meaningless if one has had to suffer five hours just to get there. Management needs to fix the pace of play or players are ultimately going to gravitate to other courses.
