WORK

The course has a great layout but the staff needs to focus on TEE boxes and greens, lots of tee boxes are bare of grass an greens are in pretty rough shape. Cars had no sand in the bottles.

Follow up review..play somewhere else.

I reviewed this course last year and am sad to say not much has changed. Great course layout with so much potential. I played it again yesterday and it is still not good. Many tee boxes do not have grass. The rough hasn't been cut in weeks. Where they did cut the rough, there are huge clumps of grass everywhere where they waited too long to cut. The greens are very inconsistent. Some bent grass, some Bermuda grass, #3 & #4, hardly any grass at all. Sprinkler heads are leaking on many holes and they smell bad. The par 3's have sand buckets on the tee boxes, but there is no sand in them. The carts have containers for sand to fix divots, yet the 2 carts in our group had no sand in them. If someone was trying to help conditions, this course doesn't make it easy. The sand traps are in horrendous condition and most havent been raked. The clubhouse doesn't have air conditioning in the bar area so it's about 100 degrees in there.

I don't get it! Such potential, but year after year...this place just gets worse. Has anyone that runs this place gone out on the course to see how bad it is? Check out #7, once the best par 3 in the area, now a cesspool of overgrown weeds and algae.

Please...please, someone who reads these reviews that run the course, STEP IT UP! I will keep playing other courses to play in the area. Try Emerald Lake or Eagle chase if you are out this way. Olde Sycamore is nice also, but a little pricey. Red Bridge is nice also, but a little farther out.

A shame it has not been taken care of

Played there for the first time and I will not return. Fairways were dormant but also nearly bare. Greens were full of Poa Annua and so bumpy you couldn't get a putt roll true. They also had quite a few bare spots which made it difficult to putt. Additionally the bunkers have not been taken care of and obviously no one who plays there knows how to rake a bunker. The times anyone in our group ended up in a bunker was either in a footprint or unraked area, Doubtful we will ever return. It is a good layout that is just not taken care of.

Great condition

The course is in great condition. The greens are in great shape, and they finally added sand to the bunkers. First time time in a few years that I’ve seen it in this good of shape. Please keep it up because the layout is one of the best around.

They're still not putting their money back into the course

Since I got a really good rate through GolfNow, I thought I'd give this course another chance. The last two times I've played The Divide, it's been in pretty poor shape, but I was hoping that with warmer weather they'd get it back in shape. NOT the case. The greens had lots of bare spots and were VERY bumpy. The fairways were burned and there were numerous bare spots. Most tee boxes were cut very short and looked like they had not been watered. Golf cart paths are in need of some repairs as well. Don't let the look from the road fool you. The owners of this course are not reinvesting their money into course maintenance and improvements. Won't be back for a long time.

Good layout, poor conditions.

I like the layout, but the course conditions are possibly the worst in the area. Many of the tee boxes don't have grass and are uneven. The fairways are ok, but around the greens, the grass is very sparse and chips are like hitting off dirt. The greens are a mix of bent, bermuda and poa anna. Each one is different and most are very slow. The bunkers are not raked or maintained. The creek areas are nothing but high weeds and plants. I attached a picture of the pond around #7 green, it's disgusting. It took 5 hours to play, which is painful.
The staff is very helpful. Jerry at the pro shop was great.

The potential is there to be one of the nicer courses in the area. They need to spend some money fixing up the course. It was packed when I was there so I know they are making money. Hopefully, things will get better, but this course has always been a little rough around the edges. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a challenge, but only because the price is lower than the nicer courses in the area.

Pleasantly surprised

The course was in very good shape compared to years past. The pace was slow this day due to 2 slow groups. A ranger would have been helpful on this day.

Course is definitely coming around. I had heard that it has not been in the greatest shape in recent years but the greens were not bad, a few divets in some holes here and there. They appear to be working on cleaning up the tee boxes that are mostly sand. Looks like they are headed in the right direction for sure, I will definitely be playing again this summer as it is an enjoyable course to play for a reasonable price

I have not played this course in a couple of years because the conditions were so bad. I found a "hot deal" for $12 so I decided to try it again. I was not disappointed. They really stepped up the maintenance with this course and the greens seemed slightly better than before. The rough might need some attention though, at some places it was hard to find my ball. But overall, satisfied with the course and happy that they have improved the course.
