Course was a let down

The greens were in fair shape at best. Some were horrible. For the life of me, I don't understand why the don't overseed the fairways. They were like hardpan for the most part. There was a lot of water in many spots and we haven't had rain???

They should have staff fill in divots daily. For a course that is sold out daily, they can't say they don't have the money to keep it top shape. I heard the city owes them a bunch of money, I don't know why they don't invest in the course because for what you pay, it should be pristine but it isn't. They need new carts. I had my first cart die by 9th hole, got another one and it almost didn't make it.

All good except staff friendliness

Very rude staff, named Rob.. want to give zero on the rating of staff friendliness. Don't want to give each of us a cart. Three of us were not from the sam household.. Told us very rudely that since the carts are not charged fully the carts might die before the 18th hole. He sounded and acted like he was having a major bad day.. We would not have any problem if he mentioned that they are short of the carts in nice way. Regardless of what kind of day he was having, he shouldn't treat customers like that.

One of the best public courses

This is the best value for the money. Course is in great condition. The greens were recently punched. Pace of play was OK. Tough layout with water hazards and lots of trees. It’s very challenging. If you play here enough then you’ll develop a low line drive shot to get out of the trees.

Starter..

Only staff I met today was starter.
I understand his job is very stressful these days because of Covid-19. But every time I visit the course (3times since last month) he was rude and inpatient. He needed vacation I guess.
