Too Much Crab grass

The amount of crab grass on in the fairways made playing less than enjoyable. Hopefully, this issue will be addressed and I would be willing to recommend thi course again.

Another Surprise In Alton, IL

Not a bad course. Greens were small, but in great shape with consistent speed. Played on a Saturday afternoon (1130). Pace of play was fantastic! Never had to wait or be pushed. I will go back for another quick nine!
