A Great Place for a Swim

I found numerous amounts of ponds on the back nine, thus the title; but joking aside, this course is a must play in the state. Well maintained with a challenging layout, fair greens, and 4 sets of tees. I was greeted by the club pro on the first tee who kindly suggested a few things he saw going on with my swing. I had a great time here and finished at the 4 hour mark.

Abysmal weekend morning pace of play

I have fond memories of playing this course as a kid.

The layout is fun, with lots of doglegs, blind shots, and elevation changes. If you’re not hitting your ball straight, you might struggle (personally, I think it’s under sloped from a handicap perspective).

The short game practice area is excellent, with multiple greens and several practice bunkers.

Today the course conditions were OK. Greens were fairly bumpy, and I encountered plenty of bald patches in fairways and rough. Bunkers were nice.

My complaint is with the way the management set us up for an extremely slow pace of play. I had an 8:09 tee time and I was at the tee box as the 8:00 group left the box at 8:02 (they have a clock on the tee). Assuming that my group was next, I walked onto the tee box and started taking practice swings. Then a threesome drove up and asked me what tee time we had. When I said we were 8:09, they said that they were 8:05. I said “can’t be, there’s no way they’re scheduling 4 minute tee times - maybe you’re going off the back?” They replied “no, we have 8:05.” I got on my phone, called the pro shop, patiently waited on hold, and then was told “somebody must have squeezed in an extra group.” Until the 17th hole, the group in front of us was still on every tee as we approached the tee area. Our round, which was supposed to start at 8:09 AM, took nearly five hours. And things were more backed up behind us (see photo of twelve players on third hole as we reached 7th tee).

It’s one thing to try to squeeze as many players as you can onto the course, but when you’re doing something whacky (like having an 8:05 and 8:09 tee time), please tell me when I check in so that I can avoid any “controversy” on the first tee which takes me out of the relaxed mindset that I’d like to have for my round of golf.

Great Day

Course was in good condition even though the greens were still recovering from aeriation. A little slow on the front nine, but a group dropped out at the turn and the pace was great for the second nine.

Nice track with lots of fun holes

Lots of dog legs, not too long,, fun holes, some blind shots so read the tips on the score card! Excellent warm up area! Greens were in very good shape and rolled real smooth. Tee boxes could have been better/brutal on a few holes. If it was closer to a highway I would play more often

Lack of communication

Booked a 1:15pm round on a Saturday. Got there early to see if we could get out and low and behold, they planned a tournament at 1:00. Asked if the two of us could sneak off the back to no avail. It would have been nice to know this ahead of time, like the aeration alerts. Round took over 5 hours.

Good outing

Enjoyed it. Greens aerated not long ago so not sure how true they were. Approach shots with water around some greens were a little scary especially with high winds. Good overall experience. Will be back.

Interesting Track

Lots of sharp doglegs and water that can come into play. Greens are large but had just been aerated so tough to tell how they normally roll. Overall, a nice layout I'd like to play again when the greens are back.
