Course not maintained
Fairways and Greens severely burnt up from the summer. Rough was 3-4 inches long. Extreme growth in between fairways. Finding a ball not on fairway was almost impossible. Fairways had large wet areas due to over irrigating. The course needs a lot of attention. However the staff was nice and the bar/restaurant was very good. The course has a lot of potential, simply needs more TLC.
I play this course a couple times a month, and yet it had been 6 weeks, since I was on vacation. I was diappointed how burnt and bald the greens were, and how weeded and patchy the fairways were. Luckily it was early in the morning and I played alone, so got done in 2.5 hours. Wil go back to see if course improves, golf now rates make it worth playing.
Dont do it, till they complete their improvements
Crabgrass, barren patches, dirt, and that was the greens. In the fairway, almost everyshot we had to roll the ball to find a 'patch' of bluegrass.. The greens were just as bad. I realize that they are trying to get it back into shape but. The one member of the staff doing maintenance was more concerned with collecting balls from the woods than anything else. The pro shop gentleman, was very helpful and friendly. The barstaff the same.
They should kill off 4 of the holes each of the next couple of years to get it back into playing shape.
Some of the holes are also just so unfair, but overall the layout isnt bad
What a difference a year makes
I played here a couple times last year and was happy to see this course coming back. Well, not anymore. Patriots Glen has a strong layout, but the conditions are terrible right now. 80% of the course is trashed. Tee to green. I am no greens keeper or do I no a lot about grass. Also I understand this has been a HOT summer and a bunch of rain, but it just seemed to look like neglecte. Id stay away this year. And probably most of next year.
Great layout even if course in tough condition
The layout of the course was terrific. I saw the other reviews and they are correct, the course is in a bit of disrepair - the rain has taken its toll. But the layout is absolutely great, the staff really friendly, and I'd recommend this course.
I still give this course four stars even as the fairways and some tees were not in good condition. It appears the course had been let go for a long time and there are efforts to bring it back. The design of the holes is well thought out and they present good challenge to play properly. Mostly the greens were ok but rough around the perimeters. It appears they are going to start cutting them and shrinking the green surfaces from paint markings around them. It is totally tree lined but the holes are big enough and for the most part the heavy lines of trees did not infringe of pinch the holes to claustrophobic feeling.
Love Patriot's Glenn
Although they have a lot of work to do on the fairways and getting this course in shape, me and my daughter love playing at Patriot's Glenn. Not bad at all when you pay $25 per person which includes the cart. Just move your ball to a good grassy area in the fairways and hit away! My daughter and I enjoy playing here and it is close to home. All the staff is great and they have a beautiful club house.
My golf partner and I had similar feelings about this course after we played it for the first time. The holes are challenging and well thought out. Maybe a little overboard with trees? We like it in spite of the poor conditions due in part to heavy local rains causing damage and hindering conditioning efforts.
This was the worst course I have played. It would have been decent but it was not taken care of at all. Every hole was dead and had disease on good parts of the holes. Looked like the greens keeper quit. Nothing was watered. Most of the fairways looked burnt or dead. Also only one cooler of water on the whole course. It was 85 when we played. That could be dangerous on hot days. It's a shame because if this was taken care of it would be a decent golf course.
Needs water and Sand
First time here. Been wanting to play this course for a long time. Course layout is nice. Course conditions are God awful. Tee box are all dirt. A couple of fairways are burnt or runined by a disease. The greens were very slow. Felt like I was hammering putts from 10 feet. No water stations, only coolers of water but you had to pay $1 for a bottle of water.
This course needs a complete management overhaul.
