Needs lots of help

Fairways were in good shape. Rough full of dandelions and was cut way to high to find balls that rolled off fairway into early rough stages. Greens were in sad shape lots of browning.

Worth it for the money

It's a muni course. Back 9 is in better condition than the first 9. It is a good value for the money.

Not bad for November 7th

Fairways were in really good shape.
Heavy rains prior week left as few bunkers in less than ideal conditions.
Greens had been aerated and were a mixed bag of very bumpy to little bumps.
Really like the layout of this course,
All in all considering the time of year , pretty darn good.

Late in the year review

Walking up to the tee box.. there were no tee markers so you guess where the tee box is. Greens were aerated a month ago supposedly but greens looked like they did it last week or two weeks ago. Course was a little wet but not too bad and only a couple holes had a lot of leaves on the ground. Carts had to be in by 4pm but it’s still light outside till 4:30 so we finished our round at 4:30 and there wasn’t an issue. Glad I only paid 25. Good bang for your buck here

The pace of play is pitiful. When one has to wait to hit
a shot on each and every shot it tales a lot of fun, and creates a lot of frustration. Charge a little more and hire a full time ranger to move some of the old flops along at a respectable pace.

Course in poor condition

Looks like the course have some critters problem cause the tee boxes are torn up as well as the fairways. Fairways pretty bumpy. Very disappointed, this course was one of our favorite golf courses. Hope they can fix the problem.

Extremely wet course

Was not aware till my arrival that there would be no carts available although my wife did text me that the course had attempted to notify me at our home phone. Walked the course using their pull carts of which we got the last two although there were only a handful of other golfers

Wettest course ever

I had forgotten that this course is a swamp after any amount of regular rain. This course is best played during mid summer or a drought.

Really enjoy playing here

Always a fun round here. The course could use a little TLC. Tee boxes have seen better days and the fairways are starving for water. Overall this course is always a good time and a great value.

Good Value

Veterans Memorial is a pretty solid course, with potential.to be really good if the greens and tee boxes were better taken care of. Great layout and fast greens. The cart girl is suoer friendly, and the pace of play is good. I enjoy playing here, and i will be back..especially if a Hot Deal for $35 with cart pops up again.

Great course layout, some condition issues

I have always loved the layout of this course. Unfortunately some of the greens, particularly on the front 9, are not in the best shape.
Still a fun course with plenty of challenges.
