Great course for the money
I had a great time on this course. Challenging and fun with lots of elevation changes. The course was in great shape. The greens were pretty decent. I think one more week and being cut they will play much faster. The back 9 gets a little jammed up but overall good pace. Got done I about 4.5 hours.
Course in good shape
After reading some of the previous reviews, was a little concerned about course conditions. The course was in as good a condition as I remember it, probably because of the aeration done back in September. The only issue I had was the pace of play, which was spotty at times, but the last 4-5 holes were really slow due to a 2sum which moved at a snails pace. Could have used a Marshal. Otherwise, will be back.
Really enjoyed playing here. Beautiful course. Definitely one of the best values in Orange County.
Small improvements could make this course great
I am a new golfer and play Talega about once a week. The course is in need of some repair but it is getting better. Staff is outstanding....I mean top notch. The issue that most of us have is pace of play. Example yesterday there was a group in front of us that made me (a new golfer) look like a pro. Did not play ready golf and were hitting more than one ball off the tee box with groups stacked up behind them.
The marshal offered to allow us to skip two holes and then come back and play holes 1 and 2. What? How about talking to the slow group and making them skip two holes to relive the bottleneck.
This course has great potential. However the bunkers were like concrete. The greens were shaggy. Hopefully I can get my money back. Hi
Great design mediocre conditions
Really fun design. Tees in poor shape several fairways need serious attention. Greens are in good shape but need to be mowed. Traps appear to have been neglected for weeks. Nice clubhouse and friendly staff.
Talega used to be my favorite course, lately, somehow, it seams to be deteriorating. For a Sunday there was no players, no starter, no marshal. it seam the course hasn't seen ground or green keepers for days.The greens were uncut, unrolled, bumpy and spongy. The bunker still showed signs of the rain we had a few days ago.
Great Layout. The greens are 1 star
I love this course. Hopefully they can get the greens and tee boxes to come back after fall maintenance. Greens were punched about 3 weeks ago, but they are terribly slow coming back. Tee boxes are way furry. Absolutely terrible greens currently. No fun to putt. The staff needs to bring them back to playable condition at all costs.
A little Information would be nice
I used to like this course a lot. I booked on Golf Now for the normal price and when I go to the course I found that they had recently punched the greens and overseeded. The course was not in good shape. Half of the first green was roped off and they had a temporary green on the back in the fairway. No mention of any of this was on the web site. Not a good deal.
Too bad, so sad.
This course has gone down hill, no pun intended. Fairways dry as a bone mostly but then pools of water in places. Some bunkers with good same d but others like cement or very wet. Greens slower than I thought possible. We won't return at any price until we hear conditions have improved.
Love Playing at Talega
Perfect weather. Perfect group. Greens just got punch but we battled through it. We knew they were punched going into it. No surprises! Second time playing here in a month. Love this course. Will play it again-soon.
Talega has deteriorated. Greens are in very bad shape and the fairways are getting very spotty. Clubhouse men's restroom is having plumbing problems. Carts are getting old....the general look and feel of the course is more like Muni Course that can be played for $40.
Absolutely in terrible shape
My brother and I signed on to Golf Now to play there we read the reviews of how bad the course was in shape but we just figured it was a bunch of crybabies but we were wrong it is in very bad shape ...::there’s just a handful of greens that are in really good shape the rest are in very poor shape and the fairways too.....
Not worth $80....they gave a $5 discount .....comeon!!!!! They should be charging $50 during this period of reconditioning ....they are punching next week.....look I would still play there because the staff and course layout is fantastic ....but in really rough shape now
Ok. Ok, No
Have played this course three times, love the design and difficulty but things have deteriorated in last three months. Greens punched recently fine, but the lack of any green on many holes is unacceptable. I mean down to dirt. Very slow and bumpy and not because of punched greens. It is not acceptable. The 15 hole has a temporary green in front of regular green and 18 only has a third of green available to play. Won’t play for many monthspunched greens the
Save your money
This course is in bad shape. The fairways are patchy with dirt and grass. The bunkers felt more like soft dirt. Very little sand. The greens, oh my, were really bad. They had everything from imported grass patches, dirt blots and dying grass to spongy and soaking wet greens. Don't waste your money here. It's going to take a lot of time to get this course back to what it was before.
Don’t do it
I’ve played talega many times and normally enjoy it. Today was a different experience. The greens are in bad shape and no one at the course disclosed that. Also 18th green is a temporary that they set up by drawing a circle around a hole in the farway. There was no cart service on the course so we made a stop at the turn to grab some food around 3pm. The snack bar was closed so we went into the grill/bar and we re told they didn’t have any food. Pretty disappointing when you are planning on eating a late lunch. I could understand if it was around 5 or so but 3pm on a Sunday? Hopefully they wake up and change some things around there or they will have lost several loyal customers.
Should have closed the course for repair
Golf now nor the pro shop told us prior to booking that the greens were damaged to a point where they should have closed the course to repair them. I play this course a lot but the conditions this weekend were the worst I have seen on any golf course. 18th hole which is the best hole, the green was relocated to the fairway. Disappointed that Gofl now didn't give me a alert telling me that half the course was damaged and in my opinion unplayable. I wont be returning.
i played Sunday and it was in terrible shape. they should be ashamed asking for $80 to play that.
