Great

First time playing. I understand it’s Late October but the greens were in rough shape on the front 9. However I felt the layout and greens were drastically better on the back. We had the course basically to ourselves which was great. Some of the greens were very tough. Overall great and I’ll def give it another chance mid season next year.

Very nice layout

I really enjoyed this course rolling, scenic and challenging. Greens on front nine had just been aerated but not back nine so you could get an idea of how they would normally be. I am looking forward to going back again.

Poor experience due to Staff

Older Asian man and woman working that day needs to work on their composure. Both were upset that my four year old was in the course, even though they knew of it and allowed for the extra rider to be paid.
There was no ranger, therefore pace was super slow.
Bunkers were not in good shape and has a lot of large rocks.
There are a lot of better courses around this area with better maintained courses and friendlier staff than this one, such as Foxford, Countryside, and even Chalet hills.

Wet

Many wet low spots in fairways. Maybe watering too much or too many low spots.
Greens were very good. Rolled true and approach shots stuck

Nice Course

This was my first time playing this course. I found it to be very compatible with my moderate level of play. The greens are huge and the fairways nice and wide. There are challenges with hills and water to make it interesting.

Back to Lake Barr Shores

Course was in great condition. Not crowded so we played round in 4 hours! Half way house closed. Restaurant closed. Soda vending machine off. No beer cart. Water jugs on course empty. Weather was hot and humid. l no water! Staff was busy on personal calls.

I guess the greens are in "great condition" if you're a big fan of soft and slow greens. In 25 years, I've never seen them in worse shape.
