Green airatted don’t play for 2 to 3 weeks

Course has improved dramatically over pst few years . I personally will not play it until I hear the greens were as good as I played the week before. Avoid this course fir 2 to 3 weeks. Then it will be a good value and better than average to play. It’s just to hard to score on these greens as of yesterday. Tee boxes need to be improved it appears that nothing has been maintained since last year. This course has lots of potential if maintenance was better. I recommend sand bottles be placed on carts This course could be a great value after greens recover from the aerating and sanding. To be fair fairways are very good on most holes. Again this could be a great value and lots of golf for the money .... it’s just not quite there yet. I’ll go back in 2 to 3 weeks and let you know how the greens recovered.

Glendale Lakes bunkers

Great course but worst bunkers ever.....their dirt no sand club just skips off dirt....this is a very nice course but wonder why they would have terrible bunkers like this. I'll continue to play but if I end up in a bunker I will move it out as it like playing on hard pan....

Interesting holes

Lots of water and some challenging holes. I want to play it again when the wind (25+ mph gusts) won’t be such a factor. Greens were okay. Some sand traps were in terrible condition but I’m sure they will remedy that as the season progresses. All in all was a fun day.

Very interesting layout with plenty of water hazards.

This is a busy course - may be due to the affordability. The fairways and tee boxes need immediate attention. There are lots of low-drain areas in the fairways. Regardless, I like this course because of the layout. Will recommend .

Great Value

I played (11/10/20) the course outside of the normal season. I assume the course was so wide open because it waa off-season and COVID-19. The course was in okay condition. The course layout is pretty good and challenging for my level (intermediate).
