Work in Progress!
I play this course often and I must say that the staff at Bowden are working hard to improve the course. Every time I’ve played the course in the last 6 months I’ve seen steady improvement everywhere. It’s encouraging to see the progress.
This was my first round at Bowden. It turned out to be better than I expected. We were pleased with the course even though it has some work going on with some greens.
Fairways in very poor condition. No golf cart paths make fairways difficult to play off since hard packed. Course layout interesting.
I wish they would have let the people at GolfNow know they was having a tournament. Made a teetime at 1140 went out an hour later. If i had known i would have made a later tee time. Waiting on every tee.
This course is in good condition especially for the rates. It costs around $24.00 (under 16 plays free on the weekends). Greens are in good condition, and the carts are nice. The range, chipping and putting greens are very good. It is a more open-style course, so you're not in trouble if you hit it far left or right. Overall a great course especially for the price.
Great course with a great staff
This is a great course with a great history. Was a little in the ruff side awhile back but they have a new Super Indendant and the the course already has made a 360 degree turnaround and only getting better! Fairways and greens are 100% improved. Greens have a great roll. Has a resturaunt attached that is in the process of remodeling and waiting for the opening to come. I would higy recommend it!
Course in good condition. Green are rolling true.
Nice to have a city course that is this great shape this time of the year. Kodo's to the staff at Bowden and the City of Macon, Ga. Keep up the good work.
the water spot was nice and cold. i would play here every chance i get.
This coarse is a good one for novice players.. the course has great features.
Great Bang for you Buck!
This is a great course for beginning golfers, as it provides straight, wide fairways.
A good course for being city-operated. The layout is straight-forward without any "tricked up" holes. Greens are somewhat fast but not ridiculously fast. The greens do not bite and do not hold so you have to bounce your approach onto the green, but you don't have to worry about divots all over the greens. Putts roll true. There are some bare spots in some of the fairways, but it looks like they are trying to fix the problem.
I'm looking forward to playing this course again once I get my swing issues straightened out.
