The course has been flooded several times this year due to the excessive rainfall. Norwood Country Club is built on a swamp. Therefore, it floods, and frequently this summer. The Fairways are junk, the greens are all they have left as they succumb to crabgrass. It doesn't appear they are putting any effort at all into restoration and doing as much as they can before the seasonal change. After today, I wouldn't be surprised if N.C C. got sold to developers this winter.
Gave this course a first time try. Flat, easy to walk, and that's the end of the positives.
Fairways - little if any grass. Heavy equipment tire marks on several holes. Mostly mud and caked ground. No roll, balls plugging in the middle of the "fairway". Open sprinkler heads in the greens. Sand traps not maintained and basically gravel. Left after 9. Pace of play awful. Ranger tried to do a good job pairing people up and keeping the flow going - not successful. Not to return.
Not Bad at all
I had to see for myself, the course was closed for 4 weeks due to the flood. They are giving out discounted rates as they work very hard on the fairways of holes that were flooded. The greens are awesome, tee boxes level and overall not too bad at all. Loved the staff, and the cold beer afterwards.
I am a new golfer and have played here a few times before the course flooded.. some of the holes have no grass in the fairways now. Hopefully they will close some of the holes and fix the course.
Change your voicemail
My friend set up a tee time to play in the morning. Called the course to confirm it was open. Voicemail said we’re open today. We got there, walked into the shop and was told the course was closed. After playing the voicemail to the employee, he said 90% of the year that voicemail is accurate and it’s not worth changing when they are closed. He went on to smugly say that they’ll contact their IT department. Terrible customer service. Set up a tee time and drove right over to William Devine (great course).
