Improved

I’ve played this course a few times in the past including times when a part of the course was dug up as they were fixing their drainage. Barren spots were not unusual and I thought I would never play here again. But I played today and liked it. The course was in pretty decent shape. Rough was extra long in some areas from overseeding. Greens slow and bumpy and there were a few greens on the back 9 which were very brown and stiff. Course is still cart path only.

Much Improved--Will be Back

Had a good day at The Foothills. Had not played for 4 years and that time was very forgettable. This time it was much better and you could see they had made an effort.

The layout is really good with a great variety and wonderful views. The little things have replaced the big things and when and if they get these taken care of the course will be one of the better ones.

Lots of landscape cleanup to do. Many piles of cut vegetation that needs to be picked up. Ball washers were not up. No yardage markers on the course. It has all the potential and has come a long way.

Foothills golf

I have played this course before today and generally found it to be okay. Today however I was not that happy. Pace of play was terrible. Waited on every tee box and every shot getting to the green. No one monitoring pace of play. They have recently gone through overseeding. The fairways were in good shape. However 5 or 6 of the greens had bare spots or areas where grass was havinng difficulty growing. Not what would be expected this time of year, The greens were also quite bumpy. If this were my first experience at Foothills I would not go back.

Excellent Course

I found this course to be great for my caliber of play. The fairways are sprawling and green, the greens are getting into great shape with the seeding. If I could have driven on the fairways instead of walking, it would have made for a perfect experience. Shot an 83!

Overseeding.

Overseeding in progress. Fairways great (following the nice rain we’ve had), greens need work following seeding (roll, mow, groom). Now auto 2 putt.

Closing for Over Seeding

We had to play the back 9 twice as the front was closed for over seeding. Would have nice if that was mentioned on the website when I booked the round, I would have booked elsewhere. As it turned out there was hardly anyone there so we played in under 4 hours. All tees were shaved down for over seeding, a couple of greens were virtually burnt bare, other than that considering they we preparing for over seeding it was in acceptable shape.

That time of year

Was shocked to see the green fees as low as they were especially for the first sub 90 degree Saturday in months. Got to the course and realized why - they had scalped the entire front 9 fairways and the greens were in tough shape. The leftover cut grass was left in the fairways making it difficult to find/hit your ball in the fairway. The course is normally in better condition. Worth calling ahead to see if there is a morning tournament because it delayed everyone’s tee times 30-45mins. Not sure if the bag guy was new but we pulled up to return the cart and he just sat there on his phone...

The Foothills 9/27

This was the first time playing this course and I was impressed! The fairways were excellent and the bunkers made it a challenge. The greens were a little ragged but the ball went where you aimed. You have to know when you are going uphill or downhill however! The front 9 went fairly fast but the back 9 went slow as there was a backup around hole #13 and no marshal to help things move a little faster. I look forward to playing here again soon unless they price me out.
