considering the weather....

course is in amazing shape considering it is the first week of december!! very few leaves, greens are in midseason form, tee boxes are very good, and fairrways are lush! its freaking cold out, but I must commend the grounds crew for being out there and doing an amazing job!

Terrible conditions.

We played Candlewood Valley today and the course was empty - and for a reason! The conditions were terrible, water everywhere, washed out cart paths, no leaf removal, etc. it was unplayable to the point it should be closed for the season.

Course conditions

Course has a severe problem with water.It affected many holes. The rough couldn't be cut and finding your ball was a big problem
You had to be right ontop of it to see it. Not a lot of fun. Greens were excellent. Nice course to play under the right conditions. I understand that it was closed for 4 days and had to open it sometime.

Late summer round

This course had a tough impact from recent heavy rain storm but the groundskeeper and crew are doing good job to get it back in shape. Expect a few holes to be subpar.

Pace of play is quite slow so be prepared and expect slow round. No rangers on course that move play along.

Difficulty of some holes remain so not for the beginning golfer. Enjoyable if you like to walk!

With some TLC hopefully fairways will return! Still worth playing a round here

The course was hit with a tropical storm, and so was the whole area for a total of 8 inches of rain. Don't know how to respond to this.

Candlewood Valley

Overall a good course. Roughs sometimes thick and some toys parse. Course often punishes good shots Some holes too narrow for 90% of golfers.

Well maintained course

Nice course. Several holes look almost overgrown and so the hole was tight. But all in all it was a challenging layout and in good condition.

Fun!!!

It’s an hour travel for us but it’s definitely worth playing a couple on times a year. If we were closer, more.
