First time played, cool layout. A lot of hard dirt “ pan “ all around, really have to make ball first contact , and the greens could be better. With that said, we had a great time, it was a challenge. You do get rewarded for good shots! Great service.. nice test.
(Slope is true.. play the whites unless your a 6)
Franklin Golf course
Great staff, food and patio open, greens in really good shape, these guys are working hard to provide a good golf experience
Course conditions are spotty at best. Baer patches on many fairways, greens were slow, tee boxes need improvement.
Awful Staff, awful conditions
Not worth the price. Staff member named Randy was completely rude and disrespectful following a misunderstanding regarding tee time pairings and other employees. Absolutely would not recommend.
This course is dying through neglect.
First, they've raised the prices to take advantage of the virus. Other courses have their pre-virus pricing - not Franklin Canyon... no senior rates, twilight rates, etc. Other issues:
1. The grass is dead and/or dying through lack of watering. Greens have brown spots and fairways are brown and hard. Can't they spend a bit of their exorbitant green fees on watering the course?
2. Zero communications with members. I am a Canyon club member and there has been zero information emailed to members.
3. We paid for range balls in advance and that has been withdrawn. Almost $100 taken away!
4. Tee boxes are not maintained with hundreds of used tees littering everywhere.
I've enjoyed this course for 15 years and it has been run onto the ground. Don't waste your money, there are plenty of other courses in much better shape.
Better courses a short dive away for cheaper
I've played this course many times and I have never seen it this bad. Not sure if its COVID times or what but the fairways are pretty chewed up and seems like you're hitting off clay at times. Greens are decent though, and carts were cleaned and ready for us prior to arrival. IMO, Not worth it for the price. So many better courses not that far away for same price or cheaper.
It’s clear the economic shutdown has hurt this course. It’s not being watered and the fairways are dry and hard-pan. The Staff is doing the best they can with limited resources. They are not offering a Jr. rate nor nor honoring Youth on Course.
Horrible conditions and pace of play!
Course is hard, dry and in bad shape. I’ve played twice in the past few weeks and my tee times have been delayed 10-30 minutes at least. Pace of play is horrible and there is no Marshal to regular. I played with my 7 year old and they do not offer a Junior rate. I paid full price for a minor just to play in horrible conditions. There were dead carts (no charge) scattered around the course. Save your money play somewhere else.
Good Game Today!
Our golf carts were ready for us when we got to the course 30 min before tee time. Pace of play was wonderful...no waiting for the group in front of us. Course conditions were fine. Finished playing in 3.5 hours!
Non Covid19 compliant
If you enjoy hitting around, have time to kill and/or working on your game, then this is the course for you. Layout is pretty good but conditions are awful. For such a dry and warm area, why are there soaked water patches on the course? Greens are bumpy and slow on a few, medium on others and of course fast on a few. therefore theyre in consistent. Tee boxes can be alot better but there are so many dry patches, its a shame. Dont bother playing out of the bunkers. A few them are soaked, not raked or looks like beach sand.
This facility is not COVID19 compliant. Yes you have to wear a mask but I KNOW for CERTAIN, the cart guys do not disinfect the cards after previous users. We watched multiple times of cards being placed back in play without thorough COVID19 cleaning. A few carts had garbage from previous users.
Not worth the $
We’ve played many courses since COVID, and unfortunately we were so disappointed at Franklin. The women’s tees were wretched. The greens were very uneven/inconsistent. Trees were cut down all over and left for dead. Wish our local course would have invested a bit more to sustain itself.
Mud or Dirt You Pick
The fairways are very dry, but they are green. Instead of rough there is hardpan, but there is also mud thanks to irrigation issues on multiple holes. Nothing marked ground under repair so it's up to you and your playing partners how you want to deal with the conditions. This is a wonderful layout and sad that it's been in disrepair for so long. Driving range is about 200 yards long before a big hill so you don't see the full flight of a driver or anything you hit over 200 yds unless you aim to the right.
***Putting green is currently closed so you can't warm up putting***
I have always found Franklin Canyon an interesting course. Some difficult holes along with some real testers. The fairways are pretty dry so it would be nice to get some more water on them, especially since summer has just now started. The greens were a bit slow as well.
