Too many homes throughout course, minimal privacy
Great course, great condition considering heavy rainfall recently. The only concern was that essentially all holes throughout the course were lined with housing. While drinking heavily, and the fact that there were very few wooded areas or restrooms available, it was very difficult to find a good spot to urinate. While we tried our best, people could probably see our wieners.
Course played nice at ok at price. Only complaint is that the greens were a bit rough from ball marks and actual spike marks, like olden days, around every hole.
Golfer have to do their part
The rough was lumpy and there was so areas that needed work. The worst parts of the course were the greens and sand traps. Golfer are expected to repair THEIR ball marks and divots and to rake the sand traps after exiting.
It is obvious that the golfers on this course are not. Sad.
This is the first time I have ever expressed my views of a golf round on Golfnow. I almost never complain about any type of service I receive.
The problem is that I was in one of two early afternoon tee times wedged in between two high school team tryouts. We followed the last group of a local high school tryout and you could easily tell that these kids were just beginning to learn the game and had no concept of pace of play. We were patient until the start of the back nine when there were 4 groups on the 10th hole. We gave up after 12 holes and 4 hours. I don't blame the kids as much as the course because they hold lots of junior events including high school matches. 6 hour rounds are the norm. Why they opened up 2 twosomes in the midst of these kids was just to make a few extra bucks. No rangers anywhere.
My experience was just ok. It was a crowded day and very hot, none of which was anything that the course could control. However, there were several attendants working the course that were way too eager to show what their jobs were by coming up to us at almost every hole to tell us what was ok and not ok to do at the course. Driving the cart on the course is a luxury but turns it into a burden when employees are over-zealous. Tone it down a bit and let the golfers enjoy their round. It’s not a cheap experience.
Another good day at Walden Ponds
Course is in good shape but traps still need some work as they are mostly dirt and inconsistent.
Good layout and tees for all skill levels.
Ranger and beverage cart were active, which is a good thing!
