Course is Snowbird ready

Nice to see so much attention being paid to the course. Greens in nice shape. Some tee boxes are sparse but didn’t effect play. Only six cars in lot when I teed off at 11 am. Had the course to myself. Price is amped up because of snowbird season but still worth the price. Layout of course is not overly challenging but still competitive.
Give Venetian Club a try. It may become your favorite.

To wet around the greens

Can't bump and run around greens to wet and grass to high hit it short and you plug and greens to slow compared to other courses

Pace of play!

I have played this course many times! You only get a fast round when the course is empty! Today it took 2 hours to complete 5 hole. We were so frustrated we did not continue. Packed our bags and left! The staff are very helpful and friendly and the food is excellent.

Nice improvement

I have played Venetian Bay several times in the past. It has an up-and-down history of playing conditions. I played two years ago and the course was not in a good shape. However, that has changed they have a new course superintendent and he is doing an outstanding job course was in excellent shape. Staff and cart girl were very friendly.

Cool morning

The course was in great shape.
I had to wait for the golf shop attendant to smoke his cigarette before I could check in and pay. Didn’t affect my round, but thought it was rude!

hot round

played this round on an extremely hot day and unfortunately were stuck behind a couple of groups of non-golfers. ( when it takes 6 shots to reach a green on a par 3 - PICK IT UP ) . the layout is challenging , the course was in good shape, a bit soft in some low areas as a consequence of heavy rains on the previous few days.

Big improvements

The last time I played this course was in July and the greens were in terrible shape, with two of them unplayable and a number of others in sad shape. I’ve always enjoyed playing here and I was pleasantly surprised to find the course not only playable again, but transformed into what it previously was. I found very little areas of some greens still recovering but it is apparent that the grounds crews are addressing their problems and are committed to full restoration. It is quickly becoming a 5 star course again...great job!
