I liked the course but hadn't played there in 10 years. The greens were in good shape but the fairways were not as green and well kept as I remembered. Pace of Play was great as we teed off on the backside first as 5 foursomes in a mini tournament were teeing off on the front. Made the round quicker and more enjoyable. Disappointing thing was reading the memo on the door when we finished (didn't read it before we played) saying that management was done as of October 21st and status of the course was unknown. So unless someone takes over, Kayak will close. If it does, I'm glad I played it one last time. That may be why it wasn't in as good of shape as before..
Conditions need attention
First round here in 2 years. I always love playing this course & have enjoyed it occasionally for over 30 years. Was ranked in a top 100 list in the past, but is really slipping in fairway, bunker & tee box conditioning. Greens are still awesome, although slowest I can remember. What I noticed this time was how little grass and how many mid-fairway weedy lies I hit from, the shallow sand in the 2 bunkers I found, and the several re-routes of the cart path. Still an amazing, quiet track through forest & marshes. I hope management understands they've got something special here & gets it back on track.
I usually play here a few times a year I live near by. The greens are good but the fairways are more like a cow pasture very rough,weeds,clumps of grass , potholes and bumps you can hit the middle of the fairway and bounce in any direction. The bunkers are hard no sand more like gravel. At this time it's a $20.course with cart not $45.
Course lacking water. Dry and spotty grass with hard pan around greens. Greens ok. Pace was ok
Where is the golf course maintenance
I'm torn, I've always loved the layout and surroundings but my last visit was disappointing. It has been two years since I played Kayak Point. I never have had a problem with course conditions. This time it was very different.
Fairways are barely mowed, rough and bumpy.
Hard to tell when the rough begins. Many long uneven lies. Bare patches thru out. Number 9 bunker is no longer. Looks like a waste area. Most bunkers are very thinly sanded. `Greens are bumpy through out. No ball washers anywhere. No refreshments on course.
Rate is inexpensive and reflects lack of course maintenance.
Need help maintaining the golf course
It was nice pace and we had pretty good outing. The greens are fast and well maintained - that was the only nice thing about the Kayak Point GC. The fairways, tee boxes and overall course conditions are below average. The Kayak Point GC once had been rated the beat and hardest in the past but not anymore. DK
The bones of a great golf course are still there, although if you didn't see it in the glory days, you would not believe it once was a beautiful, well maintained, challenging and fun course.
First let me say the staff was great, very attentive and accommodating on a busy Thursday. The price was excellent, $41 including cart.
The golf course looks (and is) in disappointingly bad shape. The grounds around the clubhouse, tee boxes, driving range etc are completely overgrown and uninviting.
The fairways are extremely uneven, leading to unfair bounces and bumpy cart rides.
The greens are very well maintained, though many traps are overgrown with grass and weeds (particularly the 9th and 12th holes).
Hopefully more money will be invested in bringing the course back. I would have been happy to pay more for a better maintained track.
Thank you for your comments we started a bunch of winter projects to include reducing the size of some of the bunkers or making them grass bunkers like the ones on 9. Unfortunately we have had some major irrigation issues which I am happy to say are repaired and so we should have things turned around shortly. We have seeded the renovation areas multiple times and due to water issues the seed never took. I promise we are working hard to get back to wonderful.
