Do not try to walk this course

Lakes is an excellent 9. Meadows and Fairways just meh. Best thing is that holes rarely run next to each other so you feel like you are all by yourself. But its a loooong way from green to the next tee on many holes so don't try to walk this course.
They treat you well here, and should, for $70.
I would play here a few times a year, but no more than that. Pick a nice fall foliage day for some pretty nice views.

What Happened to this Place

Course is starting to be a little ratty - especially the tee boxes. Also, the place was setup really short for a Saturday morning (2 par 5s were actually shorter than 450 yds from the whites.). This has always been a nice place to play but, for 100+ bucks on w weekend morning, the conditions need to be better.

Great Way to End the Summer

Course was in great condition. Greens were quick but fair once you got used to them. Staff was extremely friendly and on top of their game especially the woman who handled the carts and golf bags. Restaurant for dinner after round - friendly and quick service, plus the food was good!

Beat up Greens

This course is usually in good shape with the exceptions that the greens aree full of un repaired ball marks from the inconsiderate golfers that are just plain lazy to repair thier marks!
What is currently compounding the issue is the greens were aerated 4-5 weeks ago and are not recovering well.

Greens

The Greens on the front 9 were being airated couldn’t putt. Made the first nine unenjoyable. The Greens on the final nine were not airated ,but were in bad shape. Also a lot of sand traps were in bad shape. Overall not worth the 70 dollar greens fees.

Traps unplayable

After a heavy rain the sand traps were unplayable during an early morning round. When we checked in we should have been told about the conditions and should have been offered $30 or $40 off of the round. While we were out the grounds crew was going from hole to hole raking the sand traps which was also quite distracting. We had the grounds crew on 3 or 4 holes of the holes and the traps. So the traps were unplayable on those holes as well as 5 or 6 others.

Course is beautiful, but given the greens fees and the quality that I believe Centennial strives for, this was a subpar experience

Needs some upgrades

The Lakes - Meadows track is very solid. Heard Fairways is going away for new homes being built. Carts need to be upgraded into the 21st century. Gas power and no GPS is lame. Conditions were very playable but nothing special. Tees are beat up and greens are spotty in places but for the most part roll pretty well. It’s kind of a glorified muni rather than a top flight daily fee course. Let’s see which way Troon wants to take the course.

Beautiful conditions and challenging

Played Centennial many times. To make a long story short:
Teeboxes - decent, fairways - good (minimal divots), greens - great (putts rolled true).
Staff was friendly and food was delicious.
Only negatives was being stuck behind a slow playing threesome and course was 90 degrees. Not much recent rain and course was bone dry.

Course is virtually unplayable and management needs to get woke

Played yesterday for the first time in 18 years with a friend who drove up from NYC because we had reservations to play Lakes/Fairways and then Meadows for a total of 27 holes. (I was already in Carmel for a Dave Pelz course which concluded a day earlier.). The reservation had been made a month earlier.

First, on the course itself. There has been a lot of rain in Carmel. Fairways are swamps in parts and have not been mowed for a long time, so they play like first-cuts with very little role. First-cuts play like seconds and seconds like thirds. Also, even at 5841 yards, the white tees are still too far back to give mid-high handicappers or seniors decent chances to score, especially on par 4s, even if the course was dried and mowed. Also, many of the cart paths are just crumbling asphalt . . . reminiscent of roads in third world countries, and not what one would expect from courses of this potential caliber. And bunker sand Is just plain dirty and mediocre at best. Lastly, carts are old and gas powered with no GPS. Get with the program Troon and spend some money on maintenance and upgrades! Centennial plays like a $60/round Westchester County Municipal Course. If you are going to charge $120/round, then earn it!

Second, on the management. While we were on the 17th hole of Lakes/Fairways, a ranger came by to tell us that Meadows had been closed due to a decision to let a youth group tournament play it. Bear in mind that our reservation was made a month ago and we were told nothing when we checked in for the day. Had we known that we could not have played all three of the 9-hole courses, my friend would not have made the trip. We were offered a replay rain-check or an opportunity to replay one of the 9s we had just finished, but asked for a refund, which we got. Sorry, people, but when you take reservations, you need to honor them or provide timely notice. Troon should know better.
