fivesomes are ruining the game. Our foursome ended up with two of our party going home after nine holes.
course is in great condition
very nice layout, friendly staff, golf carts have usb chargers onboard. greens have been aereated about month ago and is in great shape. fairways very well maintained, overall had a great experience.
I have been playing the course for 40 plus years. It's had it's issues, but is getting better & better. The dead trees have been removed, but that isn't the courses fault it's just that most of the tree's have lived out their lifespan. The course was built in 1968. I think with the first cut of rough made just and inch high & the greens brought back to their original speed, like when they are verticut it presents more than a challenge to even the most experienced golfer.
Course and Staff
Course needs ground improvement. Fee paid for playing not worth it. Staff can be a little more welcoming.
Nice course but some bunkers need work.
The bunker on the number 12 was full of what looked like gofer holes. So I had to play it as ground under repair. It should have been signed as such.
The course itself was fun to play, but I had to jump around to different holes because of the fivesomes that I came up on.
A message to Golf Now, my tee time was 12:30 p.m., not 7:30 A.M.
Alot of water
Tournament early backed up but once we got going play was good
Marshall no where in sight
The front 9 was fine, nobody in front is us so the pace was perfect. When we got to the back 9 however things changes completely. There was a 4 some in front of us (I was a 2 some) and you could tell they were there just for fun. They would take several minutes inbetween everyone's shot and they would drive the cart right up to the green and park their cart. On a couple holes there were carts sitting there like they were supposed to trick you thinking it was a Marshall watching. The sand traps were in terrible shape and a majority of them had weeds growing in them. I think they flooded the course over night with water because there were puddles all over the course including some of the fairways. My first and last time playing here.
Memorial Day, so of course it is crowded. But the pro shop made zero attempt to manage groupings and start times. No starter. Groups of 1 or 2 we’re playing slow and refusing to group up into foursomes. Take control of your tee times and groupings.
course is a fun one, good lay out, nice surroundings, nice people. The course itself looked like it was still recovery from the wet season though. little rough out there in some spots, mud, dry spots, they were reseeding the which was the good thing. Overall i liked the course and play
Used to play this course about once a month (ten years ago), and liked everything about it.....except the greens, which were fuzzy and way too slow. But the layout was interesting and the scenery beautiful and calming. Many, many mature trees, lots of water, and postage stamp (mostly elevated and slightly domed) greens: So played yesterday (introducing a good friend to the course) w/ mixed expectations. Expecting the beautiful trees everywhere and also expecting (but hoping not so much) the slow greens.
I was wrong on both counts. The greens were in great condition....and, to my surprise, firm and pretty fast. However, I was and am greatly saddened by the massive number of trees they've lost (and are in the process of losing). All of them, it appears, are pines that died (are dying) do to the drought of 2 years ago and/or disease brought on by the drought. I feel so badly for Napa County and the course management that are having to experience this. It's truly heartbreaking to behold. That said, there remains quite a number of healthy mature trees (non-pines mostly) and I hope the county will be quick with plantings of fast growing, hearty species that will return some of the course's lost beauty......although it will take many, many years, as most of the pines lost were likely close to 100 years in age and older. I still recommend this course for it's creative, classic layout and wish Napa County and the management all the best in it's ongoing battle w/ nature.
Poor coarse conditions. Lots of dead areas. When they mow the lawn they don’t remove the clippings/ cut grass. There are clumps of dead cut grass everywhere. Signs and logos are in run down poor condition.
Great course. Poor players.
I think this course and staff should do a better job of reiterating golf etiquette to clueless people. We were stuck behind a couple groups so the group behind us thought it would be OK to hit into us three times. I sent their balls straight into the water for them. Unfortunately it’s obviously all about the money because if it wasn’t you would never let incompetent people on the course.
Too many pebbles in the bunkers, especially when it's packed down with the sand.
I do carry a SAND WEDGE, but I don't carry a club that will move pebbles. To Blue Rock's credit, they did manage to get a two man crew out to groom the bunker's when we were playing in the afternoon. We as golfer's would be better served, if the bunker's were groomed first thing in the morning, instead of in the afternoon. Then we wouldn't be having this conversation.
It's the attention to the little things, that bring golfer's back.
