The greens are very slow and some of them appear to be diseased. Bunkers need some help also. Fairways are good. Range balls are free... good.
Too costly for what you get on the course.
Terrible everything there
Don’t know what to begin to describe how worst this course had become. We played post and pines, and both courses were completely in the worst condition. Green and teebox were like bare dirt without grass. I paid $50+tax for a round and expect at least a decent courses to play. I wan my money back! TERRIBLE courses. SAVE YOUR MONEY and PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE! I was so angry and disappointed with how they want to take the money and didn’t do a decent job to improve their courses.
Greens were not Green
Why was one of the Nine Hole courses closed? The greens on the Palm and Pines were terrible. A twosome in from of us—we were a foursome, thought they were good enough to play from the back tees. Where was the Marshall to witness this? I will return only when the greens are fixed.
So we went to play this course because it was in a convenient location, appeared reasonable based on the photos. However most of the greens are in pretty bad shape, and the layout of the course is confusing since one of the 9 hole sections is closed. The grounds look tired, and there is a lot of trash throughout the property.
Decent place to go practice during twilight however the greens were in terrible shape . I used to play this course all the time and it was great but they have let maintenance go to the wayside. Had two groups of older guys in front of me with 7-8 guys in each group. Had to pass both of them up because the pace was horrible. Don’t spend more than $24 to play or you will most likely be disappointed.
The course was in rough shape especially the greens very slow , very torn up, lots of patches of dead grass sand and other things. They are charging way too much for the condition of the greens this is more like a $20 per round Course.
Always a great a time
Longwood is always challenging and a great experience!
Maybe one day
I hate writing negative reviews about a really nice place with bad greens. It was like putting a fuzzy ball on Velcro, where there was grass. Not to imply that there was no grass on the greens as that is not the case. It appears that they had some of the black fungus that killed a lot of patches on the greens can only believe that they are working hard to remedy the problem and that could be a big part of why the greens were so long and slow. One or two greens looked like they had an equipment problem and the mowed strips were of different height with alternating strips looking like they had been scalloped with a bad set of mower reels.
The fairways were in great shape. No issues there. The facilities are nice, The people are nice. The cart girls are nice. The greens were not and that is my only complaint about this course.I remarked to one of the gentlemen playing with us that his put looked alike the NBA dribbling toward the hole the ball bounced so much.
I assume that they are trying to remedy these conditions. I don't know. I feel for the superintendent and sure hope this isn't the result of not putting anything back into the course. With so many golf courses closing or being turned into storm water retention reservoirs, I hope that the land does not become less valuable as a golf course. It is already tough enough watching golf courses in this area jacking their prices up in response to the COVID mania to lose another one. At least it was a Hot Deal and I did not pay full fare. Maybe they could borrow some help from their sister course and fix the greens.
Same old same old
Haven't been here in a couple of years and I thought that I would give it another try. Shame on me, I keep trying to let this course win me back and it keeps failing. Seems to always have bad greens, but this time, even the tee boxes were horrible. This course is only 15 minutes from my house, but I would rather drive 30 minutes or more and pay more for a better experience. There is 5 other courses within 15 minutes of this one, so I won't be going back.
Overall most of the tee boxes are in ok shape as are the fairways. The greens are rough and it appears they are trying to combat this and letting the greens grow out. Putting was frustrating birdie attempts foiled by conditions. Putting through bare and rough spots with the longer than normal putting surface is too unpredictable. Hopefully as the season goes the greens return to a good condition which makes this course a gem.
Played this course many times. For mid May the Greens are very poor. Need major help.
Like the course layout but won’t come back for a while.
