Fossil Creek- Might have seen better days

A friend and I played here on 1/16/2023 (MLK Day) for the first time. We'd heard varied reviews of the place but decided to give it a chance.
Starting with the Clubhouse- Check in was fairly easy although due to an early tournament and what appears to be over booking, we had to wait until the last minute on a cart.
Carts are older and in desperate need or repair/replacement. (Torn seats, steering wheels not set in correct opposition to steering, very rough suspension)
Staff was generally polite (cart girl was great!).
Bathrooms could have used some additional cleaning.
Went to order drinks in grill and bar was out of bottled water (only one bottle left).
Course - Easy to follow layout. Appears to be very nice but, given time of year and maintenance, there were several issues.
Both fairways and greens were hard as concrete (greens were recently aerated and were not true rolling).
No sand on carts to fill in divots.
Was hoping there would be a cooler on the cart but there was not.

Uncertain I would recommend this course to anyone in the next 2-3 months but may try playing early Spring 2023 to see if conditions have improved.

Sloooooow play…….

I figured it would be busy. A beautiful sunny Saturday. We were a foursome, and we usually play a round in 3 1/2 hours. But it was horrible. Right from the start. There was a super slow 2 some that were 2 slots ahead of us. Then there was the kid that was by himself hitting 2-3 balls off every tee, in the fairway, in the bunkers, on the green. It was horrible. 15 minutes or more on a par 3!!! There were no Marshalls to be found. It made it a dreadful experience. And the bad thing is the 3 guys I had with me had never played there! They were really disappointed. After 4 hours of play we had only played 14 holes. It started getting too dark to see our shots any more, so we called it quits. I really like this course, but after today….. I’m never coming back……

Beautiful course!

Today was my second time playing Fossil Creek, and it hasn't disappointed me yet. Although my golf game was off today, the course was spot on.
