Improved

The new super has the course in great shape. You won't find better greens. The only reason I don't recommend this course is the management. The course is not well-managed for customers. They allow large groups to take over the first tee, so members and walk-ups have no chance of starting on the first tee box. Overall, there seems to be a "good ol boy" network at play. Friends of management are treated much better than people they don't know personally. Course marshals can be rude and distracting, rather than helpful. I play here 4-5 times a week, and never feel welcome by the staff. I guess if you didn't grow up here, you are considered an outsider.

IMPROVED AND IMPROVING

The condition of the course is greatly improved over the last few years and continues to improve. The superintendent seems very dedicated to the courses improvement. Some of the golfers do not help by not filling divots and carelessness, but the staff is working hard to keep the course in good playing shape. Tuesdays and Thursdays are discount days for non-members and the prices are very good.

They ruined the greens

This is a city-owned course, and the staff are not friendly. The maintenance crew comes to work late, and they are always out mowing right at the morning rush. They do not give way to golfers, and mow up and down fairways without acknowledgment of players. They mow greens while players are at approach. They aerated the greens last June 3rd, 4 days before a big tournament. The greens are still in horrible shape because they did a poor job. There are railroad tracks on the greens now. I watched them roll the greens with debris on them.
