All things considered

We obviously have not had any of the weather channel promised rain in quite some time here in Northern Illinois, and no one has to look past their own crunchy front yard to see that.
I've been on a couple other courses lately, and the conditions are less than ideal to be generous. I mean, golf is supposed to be played on grass right?
But Prairie Isle is currently, amazingly green and fun to play.
They can't obviously water every square inch. But our balls shouldn't be where they're not watering anyway, should they?
The bottom line, is that we're never disappointed at Prairie Isle.
But let's get some ball washers back out there eh.

Greens were fast and true.
Only negative was the tee boxes were below par.
Course has well famed holes which are picturesque.
