Slow, disorganized

Teed off at noon and didn’t finish until 5:30. Front was slow but there were four groups on the tenth tee at the turn. One stater is responsible for 36 holes and it’s not possible for one ringmaster to control all the animals in this circus. If you can’t get an early tee time, plan on making a day of it.

The Wheel

Excellent shape, best it’s been in a few years . Weather helping, but putting greens are consistent and have done a great job for a public course. Reasonable. Pricing.
Would recommend for anyone looking to plat in Fairfield county.
