Recommending Good Park

Our group has played GP for many years and it continues to be on of the most liked courses we play. Tough course, but it can be very satisfying to post a good round.

The staff is also top notch!

Wet

The course was soaked in the morning hours. Had the look of heavy rain, instead of normal morning dew. Otherwise it was a fun and challenging course. I will probably be back. The staff was friendly.

Course in poor condition

Good Park was in the poorest condition I have ever seen it, which was surprising as I play it several times each year. Many of the greens had large dead spots that an employee was chalking off as GUR for an upcoming tournament this weekend. Many areas were marked off on the fairways as well. I’m sure the heavy spring rains had some impact but honestly I’m not sure what is going on as other courses I have played have all recovered nicely.

It’s sad to see a gem of a course look and play so poorly. I’m sure the Summit Co Sr. Am this weekend will be equally disappointed.

Wet spots

I love this gourse. Greens good and course layout with big beautiful old trees. You need good course management. Too many wet mushy spots and some landscaping cleanup needs done. Tha being said, I'd play here anytime. Great value!

Enjoyed the round

First of all the course was in great shape. We were a threesome waiting all day on a foursome that was very slow and at times 2 to 3 holes behind the group in front of them. Didn’t look like anybody was telling them to pick up the pace.

Regardless we enjoyed the day and the course.

Greens were in great shape. course has low spots that collect water after heavy rains which is the case. In spite of this, it is a good test for golf.

Nice course, good value

Course was in really good shape, fairways and greens were well maintained. A bit wet in spots, but overall beginning to dry out and not bad at all for all the rain we've had this spring.

Memorial Day play

Challenging course with tree lined fairways. Long par 3’s and longer holes than other muni courses I have played. Roughs were a little longer, challenging to find balls as spring rains probably kept them from timely cutting.

Greens were very good. Traps were raked and in good condition.

Excellent Public course

For it having rained the past couple days the course played very well, greens rolled true with an average pace. Most holes are lined with trees on both sides so good tee shots are important. It helps to hit your long irons well on the longer par 4’s, 5’s, and the long par 3’s. Staff was friendly and got me out on the course right away when I was ready (it was a slower Sunday with the cloudy/rainy weather). Overall great public course for a good price. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Nice course, good value

Extremely wet and sloppy conditions, but I still enjoyed the round. I think they're going to have to put in some drainage in a few areas. Doesn't seem like it's even been that wet lately and large amounts of golf course had standing water and very soggy areas. It's a nice course to play when dry.
