goatranch conditions

Take your putter out to an asphalt or cement driveway. Count the times the ball bounces left or right on a 15 foot path...then practice distance control ..vary from a nap carpet to a linoleum floor and several on closely mown lawn patch...you should have this down when you play the greens.
They have markers on all the tee areas..otherwise you could not tell them from the fairway and the fairway from the roughs. Make your group a bunker rule...you can place the ball in any area not torn up by footprints, bird tracks, or washed out cuts. Lift, clean and place to any grass suitable on the fairway, there are patches of good grass within a 3 foot range of your ball.
Imagine the worst conditioned course you have ever played...give that course a 1 to 10 and then subtract 5 to 8 and you will have this course rated for playing conditions. Enjoy your round.

First time

I liked it for my first time playing. Great bargain with some tight fairways leading to a challenge on some holes, especially the first par 3 on the back 9 over water with highly sloped green. I loved that hole!

First Time Playing

One and done....will not play again

There was no grass in the fairways. They were not bare, but rather filled with weeds...no grass. The tee boxes were awful, the greens were fair, with may bare spots.

The layout is awful, and the conditions were worse.

The staff seemed friendly.

The course is in horrible shape. Tee boxes bad, fairways bad , sand traps bad , but the greens were the worst. It needs a lot of Tlc . Wouldn’t go back and play for free

Great layout

Excellent course layout. Many of the greens, fairways and tee boxes were bare in spots. A couple of the greens were great. Overall, the “golf experience” was great.

Challenging Course

First time on the South course. Challenging but fun course to play. The greens are in great condition. The fairway grass was a little too long and really limited roll in the fairway. Not a long course since I played off the silver tees but there a premium on shot placement on this course with all the lakes and dog legs. I will play again.

Good value Through Golfnow

Very friendly staff. Suggested that we tee off on East course as there were less people on it. Played in 2 hours and 10 minutes. Held up on last 4 holes by two threesomes. Fairways were damp but firm with little roll. Greens held good shots and were average speed and average condition.. Recommend that you try these courses.

Nice Layout

This course is a great value for the green fee. Tee boxes were good, fairway was decent and greens rolled well.

The course is not the best manicured but for the cost it is well worth the round. Some patchy greens.

There was some good holes with a couple of great par threes, one over water was the highlight. The par five on the back was also a tricky hole with a double dog leg.

Course does need some work, probably some fertilizer and weed maintenance. But having said that it was an enjoyable course with some challenges and overall worth playing.

The layout was well thought out and enough difficulty to keep your focus on making good smart shots

I will play it again before returning back to Canada in two weeks.

Great course in great cond.

Played south a lot last year, and a few times so far this year. It's in very good cond. Fairways are beautiful and so are greens. Only bad part is pig damage near 7,9 and 10th holes. Never crowded here whether you play east or south

Condition

The course is in great condition, some holes are very challenging but fair, It rained and all of a sudden the greens changed and got slower.
Went for a beer after the golf and hit happy hour 2 for 1 drinks.
A good day at Grenelefe on the South Course.

Wonderful course

Grew up hunting and fishing by this course. Played it today for the first time and it was in great shape. Luscious, green fairways and 17 of the 18 greens were in perfect condition.
