Terrible Greens

The course layout was good played here several times I have never seen the green in such poor conditions. Not a good course to play for awhile.

Mixed Conditions

Played 18. Holes 1-9 (public course) the fairways, greens and even rough were in great shape. Pace was decent but no ranger. Hole 10-18 were a complete 180. Greens were rock hard and in poor condition. Too many trimmed weeds made up the greens. Additionally with no ranger, no pace of play manager. Group of 3 ahead of us held up pace. While we still played 18 in 4:15, it could had been better since the course was empty today. Probably will not be playing again this late in season

Too many weeds

We had not been to RGA since last year, when we had played several times. We were very disappointed in the conditions. There were many weeds (crabgrass?) around and in the greens. It was difficult to put without having the weeds change to course of the ball. The staff was great, and overall we like the layout, though wish they had a driving range.

One and done

First and last time playing RGA. Only one visible yardage marker inside of 150 yards on entire 18....and we looked for them. Guess and hope for the best on anything -125. Greens were shredded as nobody repairs ball marks (not staff's fault but I would be reminding peeps on 1st tee from starter). Wanted to enjoy a cold beverage after the round and ended up sitting on 1st tee as there is no seating inside clubhouse. I know it was built in 20s but keep up with the times. One and done on this course.

Great friendly course

RGA is a great course. It is challenging, yet not so difficult that it isn't fun to play.

Great potential course

Course was in overall below average condition. Seems they are loosing some greens. Tee boxes just redone are in need of water. Pact of play was sloooow. Saw ranger twice, once on 1st tee will he was having conversation with starter and once parked on course will a theesome slowed everyone up. By back nine there was a two hole gap between them and group ahead of them.
