Great Day

Devou has been working very hard to improve the course. Fixing two holes. The number of grounds crew was impressive.The main thing today that really impressed me were the coolers with water. Whoever came up with this idea is to get a bonus.

Greens were excellent! Not my kind of course, too much walking up/down hills. Rough was rough, no course ranger.

Course is in bad repair, good drives are not rewarded course has a number of nice holes, however overall I wouldn't recommend it with all the other nice courses in the area to play.

Pace of play once again…

Played here again thinking maybe they would have the tee times spread out better and no , they had 2 other 4somes booked at the exact same time I booked. Love the people here but they have to do a better job at tee times. Would be so fun (probably in my top 5 around here) if they did a better job with times.

Grandson Won Again

We had an 8:40 tee time and the weather was perfect. Had fun on first hole with a stray dog not wanting to putt. It kept barking the whole time. No big deal though. The girls working the concessions were friendly and courteous. The course was in great shape and looked lush green.

Paid a good price to play 18+cart at Devou. Weather was perfect. Pace of play was poor. Doesn't matter if you hit a great drive and it lands in the middle of the fairway, it will take off into the deep rough or end up OB due to the slope of the whole course.
