Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Good day in late November
Course was in good shape for late November. Greens were a little bumpy.
Need help with the leaves
Near impossible to find ur ball if just off fairway due to the amount of leaves. Leaves need to be blown into the woods
Great course, Horrible pace of play
The course is fun and quite beautiful but the staff seemingly doesn’t know how to manage their golf course. Played my first 9 with no one in sight, then the back 9 we are backed up 3 groups on hole 11 when they have 3 9s, seemingly no flow. Love this course, but if it’s anytime after 9am good luck with getting your round complete in a respectful time.
Lush Greens and fairways
Cannot comment on prior reviews regarding pace of play because I played 9 early morning. However cart drop off looked busy when I returned. Greens we’re in great shape. Fairways are soft but pretty filled with unreplaced divots. Tee boxes were similar. Areas of grass were in great condition but a lot of divots. Overall course is in better shape than courses in the area. Price point was good for weekend morning.
Good potential unrealized
Nice layout with 3 9-hole courses. Clinton River was overflowing, which didn't have much affect on play, but creates hazards that aren't intended. Food choices are basically just 1 item (hot dogs the day I went) and a few snacks. Small driving range is ok. The unacceptable part was the pace of play. Our tee time at 8:30 was already backed up on the 1st tee by 12 people. 5 hours later (as a twosome!) we were on hole 15 and just left. They overbook too close together and didn't see any rangers to speed people up.
Pace of play terrible
It took us over an hour to play 3 holes yesterday. The fourth was backed up with 16 players from a womens league. Ranger suggested going back to play 1-3 again. We did not get to play 7-9. Absolutely terrible management of the league and tee times.
The day before we played there were major thunderstorms. We played around noon they did an incredible job getting things back in great shape lots of crew members cleaning everything up.
Very impressive and shows there commitment to keeping the corse well above average conditions
I played early Thursday with a group. We were the first ones out and played 9 holes around 2-2:15 minutes. Make the turn and there’s 20 people in front of us. I asked the started why this happens every time I play here and he said because we played too fast. They over book this course way too much. For the price it’s just unacceptable, that will be the last time I ever play here.
Played West and South. Decent pace, conditions were nice, bar cart was out. Great day.
Course layout is fun, bunkers were horrible. Almost unplayable and tee boxes and spots of the fairway the same. Real issue is the lack of etiquette from the rangers and starters. Just a bunch of grumpy dudes that drive behind across fairways and teeboxes while youre hitting.
Used to be nice
Sycamore used to be a really nice course. Not sure what’s going on but over the last couple years I’ve noticed a downgrade the condition of the course. Fairways with large bare spots . Bumpy greens. Tee boxes ripped up. Today was Father’s Day and we played a round starting at 8 AM. Peace of play was awful. It was Father’s Day so that was to be expected but the fact that they schedule teetimes two minutes apart didn’t help that. We played 12 holes in 4 hours and decided that was enough.
Prices are up this year $65 now to play on a Sunday morning. The course conditions are the worst I’ve ever seen it. I’ve played this course over 30 times. The fairway on the west course sixth hole is atrocious. Tee boxes are in bad shape. Overhanging trees not trimmed. Can’t justify playing $65 to play this course.
