Soaked

This is a beautiful course. However the course was soaked due to the overnight rain. The fairways were relatively clear of leaves but a lot of the greens were not. The pace was great on the front 9 but the back 9 was stagnant. The clubhouse only offers drinks, chips and candy bars.

Should have been aware of aeration

Difficult course. Wasn't made aware that greens had been aerated, although golfers might expect that this time of year! Was cart path only and cart paths are in very bad shape.

Disappointed

Booked a round to play the Lake/River Nines. Neither the course website nor GolfNow disclosed the course had been recently aerated. The Lake 9 was recently aerated and the River 9 was actually closed for aerification. When brought to the attention of the Pro Shop, that individual was no help and not interested in making the situation right. Basically said we notified GolfNow about course conditions and to take it up with them.

Fowler's is Slipping

Played my annual round at Fowler's. It seems to be slipping, maybe because of COVID?
- several fairways hard burn-out areas. There were the same burnout areas in 2019. Doesn't seem it's been addressed
- the green on Hole 1 had a 6 inch strip of turf removed across the middle. Not sure why but definitely impacts the green. We treated it as ground under repair if you had to putt across it.
- for the price, very basic carts.
- Clubhouse shut down. No snack bar, no cart, etc. Very basic.
-Doesn't really feel "premium" any more. Abover average, yes. But "premium"? No.

Cart paths are like a Chevy test track, horrible. Management is showing its lack of commitment to certain areas of course, fairways are decent but nowhere like they should be. Greens are generally excellent, bunkers not edged or maintained. Clubhouse is basically shut down, no beverage cart. Quit using Covid as an excuse. Most courses are packed & taking in lots of money. Cheap management stuffing their pockets. A classic Pete Dye layout that is suffering from lack of attention due to poor management or lack of caring.

Rip off

I booked on golf now. When I got there I didn't want to use my debit card so I payed cash. Day later I noticed I was charged for the round of golf and there fee after I payed in cash. Called up there and got no where. The guy told me it was for a cancelation the day before but that was not the case. I still have the receipt and my bank statement prooving my case but I work out of town and can't get back there to straighten it out. I believe this has happened before and I just didn't catch it.

Slow Play Makes No One Happy

The course is as nice as it’s ever been. Conditions are well above average.
However, teeing off at 3:00 and having no starter to watch the groups go out it made for a 5 hour round.
Sending out twosome after twosome and twosome does no one any good.
I just wish there was someone to keep play moving along.

How are conditions "above average" when Green #1 has a big part under repair and there are several burnout spots on several fairways that were there in 2019?

Sad

Beautiful layout. Pete Dye would be rolling in his grave. Traps not raked out, full of weeds and mud. Needs TLC. Disappointed . Better courses at that price point.

Sloppy conditions and course is beat up

I love Fowler’s Mills and it’s a great layout but the course has seen better days. I don’t know if they’re struggling cause of Covid but I hope they can recover soon. Weeds growing in traps, cart paths are beat up, tee boxes not looking great and no starters working the course.
