New Greens are looking good

Tee'd off at 10 and played in 3.5 hours. No rushing.

Tee boxes and fairways are looking very nice.
The new greens are rolling great but beware...the surface is hard.
1 or 2 times being punched and they will be awesome!!!

Aim for the front edge is the way I played the new greens...worked well.
The sand in the sand traps has had a year to settle in and is perfect...yes, I found several.
Looking forward to getting a group up for a full weekend of play.

Golfing close to the Swamp

The course is in good shape. New greens are extremely hard and not very receptive. They putt good though.

Best Round

Today was the first time my friend and I were able to get together and be able to enjoy a round of golf. I shot the best I have shot in a long time and ended up with a 94. He destroyed me he shot the best round he has ever shot… he ended up with a 71. The course was in excellent condition and there temporary greens were better than most places permanent greens. I can’t wait to go back after the 28th and see the permanent greens because they are already looking FANTASTIC!

Bad greens

They have decided to redo all the greens at the same time. They made up some temporary greens, and they are absolutely horrendous! The ball bounces a few inches off the 'green' trying to make the hole.

Bad Temp Greens on all Holes

They were working on all of the regular greens which were in need of a lot of work. The temp greens were not mowed properly (grass too high) which made putting useless. Also, the temp greens in front of the regular greens made GPS pretty much useless as well. Suggest posting warning msg on Golf Now web site.

Messed up

I paid $70 for two rounds on a hot deal and get to the course to find out all 18 greens are completely under renovation and have to play temporary greens on every hole. On top of that I found out the course is only charging $20 plus tax for a round I just paid $35 for.

The Lakes at Laura Walker

Like the layout. Nice open course and not tricked up as so many try to be. A little long in the tooth and needs new greens. Rest of course in pretty good shape.

Greens are about to be replaced

The course will be going to temporary greens the first weeks of April. The pro shop person said 3 months before the new greens will be in place. Call before you book to see.
