Challenging experience given the conditions

I played the Babe/Creek combination and walked the round. It was very challenging given the circumstances. It started out rough due to the required telephone check in from the parking lot. Despite being told everything was fine, by the time I got to the first tee, my group was already out in the first fairway. I hustled down to the second tee and caught them there so I missed the first hole. Since there were no benches, water, or scorecards it was a tough day. I felt like I was constantly faced with blind shots since there was often quite a distance from the tees to any course information markers. Without a scorecard or other map, it was quite challenging. There was no drink cart so without water on the course, it was a brutal 90 degree round.

Poor management

Two people from my reservation had to cancel last minute. I called them as soon as I found out these two had to cancel to let them know. The course still charged me the full amount. It’s ridiculous they did this. The course wasn’t full by any means. It was a weekday with plenty of open slots. Things change. I will not be playing here again.

Nice course, good value

Nice course. I enjoyed the layout and variety. In good shape, except for the bunkers which need more sand and/or raking. Greens had been aerated in the past few weeks but healing nicely and not much of an issue. Pace of play ws 4:10 for a walking foursome. A few holes on the back nine are far apart so there's extra walking, but not too bad.

Nice course, good value

I like the layout of this course. If you’re walking there are a few longish wake between a few of the holes. Greens had been sweated recently but were pretty well healed and in decent shape. Well maintained. 4:20 for a walking threesome was good (Monday 10:10 tee time, wasn’t busy)

For a City managed course, Excellent.

I played 18, the Creek course and Babe Lynn. The Creek course is not overly long, but a real kick to play. Fairways are a bit narrow and there are plenty of trees lining the fairways. Babe Lynn is longer, around 3500 from the tips, at not as much fun. The greens were aerated a few days ago, so putting was not much fun. That is no fault of the city or the team here, it has to be done. My only negative is the range. No grass tees and all mats. I hate mats, so that was an issue for me. Overall, a terrific day on the course.

Good course

This is my home course. Play here often and enjoy it. The course is in good shape and the greens are rolling nice and fast mid-summer. Easy course to walk.

Fun Course BUT......

Fun course, good layout and great staff but greens are in horrible condition. Never seen anything like it. I play this course every year and it is public course and can get beat up but after experiencing the greens today I will not be going back.

Fun round of Golf

We had rain in the morning so it was just my buddy and I planning the entire time - I never even saw any other golfers around us. We played the west 9, a very simple course with not much sand and no water but it was very well kept. Fun round especially with the discounted GN rate
