Badly aerated greens , watering during play & hole closed

We know that greens need to be aerated but you should tell players before they drive an hour to get there , I called the pro shop twice to ask a couple of question since we never played here before and they never said a word about aerating. This was over an hour drive for us . Even as we paid at the pro shop not a word , the starter told us as we checked in , but he never told us that one green was closed with a temporary flag and 8" hole in the fairway , and the sprinklers were going full blast and covering the temporary flag ? Greens were un-puttable , tee boxes neglected as well as most of the course, this was all from lack of taking care of the course . The layout of the course was good but its a shame they don't take care of it , if the city of Allentown owns it they need some help running it . We played 10 miles away at Bethlehem Municipal two weeks earlier and the course was in excellent shape with beautiful greens , so they cannot blame the weather at Allentown . Get your act together Allentown or at least give a warning of what to expect.

Great Muni!

I'm in a league at this course and it's in the greatest shape it's been in years. Moderate to challenging course layout with some water hazards, narrow fairways, and minor elevation changes; but also has some wide open holes for the higher handicaps.
