Fast Greens

Bermuda greens are going dormant.....brutally fast!
Rest of course in very good condition....a little spongy around the greens. Got to play the Deer Run nine for the first time in 18 months....tough par 4's!

Riverwood- Awesome Day of Golf

The course was nearly empty, no waiting, greens were in great shape. Tee boxes were also in great shape.
The cart path is a little rough, some areas really need to have some fill in work done.
Great day of golf.

Terrible Experience

Playing on Saturday morning. They put me out as a single for some reason. I make it around pretty good most of the front nine playing through 2 groups. I get to the back nine and I catch a fivesome on my 12 hole of the day. I have now been watching them play 3 holes for the last hour and one gentlemen came back to tell me that this is a member group and there are more in front of them and I’m just gunna have to wait. Does this guy think I don’t have eye balls. I can see two holes ahead from where I’m sitting and don’t see an single sole. So I called the Proshop and said hi I’m waiting on a fivesome and there doesn’t seem to be anyone in front but they aren’t letting me go. The answer I got from the other side of the line is “yep that’s my member group and the course policy is they don’t have to let anyone through, you’ve played to in 3 hours so far so you’re stuck and there’s nothing I can do”. Course policy? The scorecard clearly stats under rules to let faster groups play through. It doesn’t say anything about a special member group. If this is the way you want to do business then be private. Don’t let me play as a single on a Saturday morning. I haven’t been here in years because there is always some sort of problem. Should have stayed away.

The course is exceptional and in great condition. Our only complaint is the rough is too long and thick and makes it difficult to find your ball let alone hit a decent shot.

Great day for golf

The greens, tee boxes and fairways were in very good shape. The bunkers on our first 9 were in bad shape but not on the second nine. Pace of play was great.

PGA ruff

Beautiful course, But the ruff is way to thick.
If your one yard off the fairway,or greens, good luck finding your ball. And if you do finally find it, you can t even advance the ball out 30 yards its so thick.
If you want to search for your ball 4 plus hours, this is your place

Greens need work

As a member of FSC, I play both this course and Eagle Ridge all the time and it's the same thing at both places: Greens were punched nearly 2 months ago and they're still slow and bumpy. Plenty of other courses in the area were punched around the same time and most of them are rolling fast and true now. No excuse for this--Need to step up the attention to the greens. Otherwise, course is in good shape.

Course in Good Shape...but the cart paths!!!!

Played with my son and daughter midweek. Course was in very good shape. Fairways were in excellent condition. Greens also very good. The cart paths and the carts need some help. My cart had a major case of the jerks.

Overall, very satisfied with the round. Will come back again.
