This course is borderline blighted

The maintenance on this course is severely lacking. The fairways are covered in several different types of grass and weeds that are growing out of hard dirt. I think there are sprinklers on this course but are they ever used? Also, do not play with expensive balls here. The rough will gobble them up and in spots would be considered fescue on better courses. The greens are burned out and unacceptable, #13 stands out as an absolute joke. The bunkers do not have sand in them, its dirt and they are unplayable. On the day I went, May 15th, there was no beverage cart and the halfway house was closed which was extremely disappointing. Hot dog at the turn? I guess not. The course should be fully operational by now! The only option to purchase beverages was from a fridge in the clubhouse. Rounds here SHOULD NOT COST $50. This course has a great design (especially the back 9) but it deserves better. The course SHOULD BE A GEM OF THE SUBURBS. Put some money into it, get it right, until then I will not be returning and neither should anyone else.

Ended round after 7 holes

I live up the street from this course and have played it many times over the years. This morning sadly will be the last time I plan on playing there. 50 dollars is acceptable for this time of year. But the grass is virtually untouched. Lost balls less than 5 feet off the green because of mixture of tall grass and dandelions everywhere leads to balls being impossible to see. Even lost voltik high vis balls in the grass as well. Hard to enjoy a round of golf when you're losing every ball. Balls barely off the fairway swallowed up in the grass. After a month of heavy rains the greens and fairways were burnt up as well. The course has not been maintained and it completely ruined what should have been a fun day out on the course. We ended up leaving after the 7th hole due to frustrations of just absolutely terrible course conditions. Again I can understand this time of year the pricing will be higher. But the course should be kept up if its going to charge regular season pricing.

Bring a lot of golf balls

They have US open rough, maybe 5-6 inches high. If you're not accurate you're gonna lose balls in the rough. The fairways have 2 inch grass so you're not going to get spin chipping or pitching from it. Only thing decent is the layout and maybe the greens which are a bit slow but rolling ok.

Good not great

It’s been raining a lot so I understand some parts of course is muddy but 18, 11, 13,14 tee box is full of branches goose poop dog poop. Main concern is tee box not being level and course has random branches. Leaves, garbage making it hard to find ball in fairway.
