Bad Temp Greens on all Holes

They were working on all of the regular greens which were in need of a lot of work. The temp greens were not mowed properly (grass too high) which made putting useless. Also, the temp greens in front of the regular greens made GPS pretty much useless as well. Suggest posting warning msg on Golf Now web site.

Messed up

I paid $70 for two rounds on a hot deal and get to the course to find out all 18 greens are completely under renovation and have to play temporary greens on every hole. On top of that I found out the course is only charging $20 plus tax for a round I just paid $35 for.

The Lakes at Laura Walker

Like the layout. Nice open course and not tricked up as so many try to be. A little long in the tooth and needs new greens. Rest of course in pretty good shape.

Greens are getting redone soon which will help as there isn’t much grass left to putt on at the moment. Have played here for years and is an excellent course for ladies.
