Nice course

Everything was great except the greens had been aerated and sanded hence the lower score for course conditions.

Woodlands

Once a grand golf course, now, the greens are about gone the overall maintenance is being ignored, bunker washed out (#2)weeds abound throughout It looks like a course that has been sold and no one is puttin any money into it. It is a shell of its former self. Honestly, after seeing it today I would not play it if it was free I am so sad to have to write this

Greens aerated recently and not noted

Course could ordinarily be good, but greens were aerated this month and not well taken care of. That would be ok, but we paid $70+ and it was not noted when we booked (the day prior). Price should have been discounted and recent aeration should have been listed as other courses do

No alert about aerification!

We played at Woodlands course on 9/7/22 and when we made a reservation on GolfNow, there was no alert or notification to warn us that the course just had an aerification on all greens. Check in person in pro shop didn't even mention when we got there and we found out when we reached our first green. Aerification holes were rather big and no sands were on greens so all greens were bumpy and it was hard to make putts. There was no purpose of reading greens because balls were bouncing off to all directions. I wouldn't play here until late September.

Great day at Chateau Elan

I wish I could have played better but cannot blame the course. Great layout and in great shape. The real time yardage screen on the cart was a great help.

Seems like a silly thing to mention but it was a very hot day and we played in the late afternoon. I have played courses where their water coolers were not refilled and either empty or warm. All coolers had plenty of water and the water was very cold. Taking care of the small stuff is impressive.

Disappointing greens for the price

Great course, but I was let down by the condition of the greens. Many of them had black patches.

Greens need help

Last month everything was perfect. Yesterday, the greens need some serious help. Fungus... The pace would have been great but the couple in front of me just were way to slow and they didn't understand golf etiquette. Let me play through. And please fix your ball marks on the greens people.

Bad Green with Fungus - Woodlands Course

Many greens at Woodlands course have Fungus growing on them with wet and bald spots., which makes them hard to putt on. I brought up this issue to the club house after the round and they said, its just hot out there, which causes the Bentgrass to burn, so they water it often. That's not an excuse as several other courses have similar grass, but not the same issue. Instead of club house apologizing for these green conditions, these said.. play our other course (Chateau), to which I said, I'm NOT coming back to play here anytime soon.
