Nice Day at Mather

The course drained well from the rains the city had over the weekend and the pace of play was great. I’ve noticed the course has been manicured over the years with reduced tree limbs over reaching into the fairways and more attention is being given to the overall condition of greens and boxes. Hole #11, and #17 are still my favorite and I played them well, but the course still plays tuff at times when you approach from the wrong side of the fairways. Overall a good test and I will play again one day.

Back nine in recovery conditions

Pace of play was good. I completed in less than 4 hours. The greens were in great shape. The fairways were dry and out of bounds area, if hit into, the ball would run. The fairways in the back nine still had dirt clods from being punched, not playable. I was able to hit off the dried dirt and onto the greens. I wasn’t informed that the back 9 was in horrible shape and in recovery.

Nice course

Nicely kept course, staff courteous and friendly. Not too long and fairways not too narrow. Good course for intermediate players like myself.

Too slow for me

1:40 to play 5 holes. Sorry but I left after 5. Will try on a weekday. I like that the fairways are wide as I was trying out a new driver and needed some space

In Good Shape

Was very surprised and impressed that the course was in such good shape after punching the greens only 2 weeks ago. Greens are almost completely cured. Played around mid day and pace of play was great!

Great finishing holes

Played today under excellent weather. Purchased through Golf Now at great price of 39/player due to recent aeration. Greens still played relatively accurate despite aeration. Fairways are not great but very playable. Bunkers can use little more sand. Finishing holes are challenging as both are long par 4s. Overall great value for a Sunday morning time.

Great Muni Course

This is a hidden gem... Great old school course and club house. Nice selection of golfing equipment etc within pro shop. Golf carts are like new. Course design is well thought out. Wide fairways all around. Beautiful large trees littered throughout the whole course. I feel like I found my home course and will return soon.

We will return for sure

Mather CG was a joy to play. Friendly staff, good range and practice area, course conditions excellent, friendly layout. Mather is not an extreme golf experience like many courses we have played recently but nonetheless a really fun golf experience. We will be playing this course often now that we know what to expect. And.....with an ongoing midweek senior discount you cannot go wrong.

Walked this course again and finished in 3hr 15min. The course was in great condition and staff was friendly as usual. Extremely easy course to walk, and they offer a walk rate that can't be beat. Thanks!

A Day at Mather Golf Course

Course was in pretty good condition considering,
all the rain we've had lately.Sand Traps need some
love & sand.Greens overall are pretty true ,
after their able to mow them should be better and
a lot faster.overall it was a fun day & priced right.
I'll play this course again

Soggy but playable

I’ve played this course 3 times now and today was the wettest, we have had a lot of rain lately. There were areas that were very soggy and areas that were fine. The fairways were long, which is understandable due to not being able to mow with it so wet. The bunkers were in poor shape, however I had two great outs anyways. The greens were in excellent shape!!
