Course it’s good layout, some holes must upgrade on the conditions, too muddy , too wet, make and build those areas it’s the hazard penalty areas, like a streams, a pond , a wetlands and so on cart path must smooth out for overall enjoyment and brings repeat players.

Don’t leaf the fairway

Very tough finding a ball if you are not in the fairway. Lots of leaves and cut grass everywhere. Greens were very slow. Better to play in the summer.

Mow the North Course Fairways

This was a gem of a course back in the day. Great layout but really not kept well. Difficult to the tell difference between rough and fairways. particularly on the back 9 of the north course. Tee boxes also in disrepair, no grass, uneven. Greens roll slow. Not worth $84.

Good shape but need rangers

Course was in good shape but by the time we got to the back nine there were 2 groups on every tee. Never saw a ranger but sore need them! Will never play on a weekend there again.

Mow the course! Rough was way too long and thick. At points, couldn’t tell if we were in the fairway or rough because the fairway grass was sooo long. There’s been enough good days to get the mowing done!

Sub-Par experience

Perhaps it’s COVID related, and weather related, but the conditions really sucked - tee to green. I’ve played here for years, but never seen the course so poorly cared for. No water on course. No beverage cart. On a positive note, there was sand in the bunkers. The greens needed to be cut and rolled and were covered with dew well into the late morning. The did not roll roll true and we’re covered in blemishes. Cut grass covered the fairways and rough, and the golf shoes had to be constantly cleaned of the thick wet grass. Very disappointing and not worth the $64 that is charged walkers on weekends. I don’t plan to return soon!

Hot days = long grass and saturated greens

Whilst I understand the need to leave first cut of rough a little longer due to the heat - to avoid burning, any marginal missed resulted in lost ball or significant time looking.

The greens were also being pumped with water and some type of fertilizer, so you were putting through near puddles at 6:30am.

I don’t understand why the standard rate was applied for the round? $84?? Not acceptable given the course conditions. It should be weighted when the course management has clearly made a decision to protect the course.

To whoever is writing comments from Stow Acres, please stop. Every single response claims you will fix the issue identified, yet you do nothing. Why are you even responding? It makes it worse when you claim you will fix an issue and don’t do it. Just say nothing. It’s more consistent with what you are doing…which is nothing. Nothing to address slow greens, uncut rough, disastrous tee boxes, overgrown trees, nonexistent sand in bunkers, trash cans that never get emptied, no rangers on the course.
