Mid November condition

pace was slow for mid day Tuesday.

fairways are now dormant, allows extra roll. still have decent surface to strike a shot. greens also soft and roll quite fast, nobody fixed their divots, and you will miss a short putt because of lack of course courtesy. no cart service, no snack shack in the middle of the day. too bad; left money in my pocket.

Target golf

This is the course I was needing. It has challenge holes where you know you shouldn't hit the driver, or you should lay up. Great course if you are looking to improve your approach shots, and make smart choices.

5.5 hour round on sunday at 12

Great course and conditions. Round was 5.5 hours on sunday at 12. Rangers do not enforce pace of play and course was packed. The course was so congrsted I couldn’t even see who was holding everyone up, probably 5+ groups ahead.

Guy inside pro shop told me it would be a 4.5 hour round, I laughed at him. Won’t ever play here again on the weekends in the afternoon.

Great Fairways and Layout

If you manage to stay on the fairway from the tee, you are rewarded with perfect lies. Hitting fairways is not always easy for this track.

Nice -for Public course

WC is a nice layout for a Public Course- great practice area and even Executive course is good. My only issue with WC , & many public courses is they don't empower the Marshall. There was very slow group 3 groups ahead of us, caused large back up. Marshall went by 3-4 times, never sped up, never let anyone play through. there was at least 1-2 empty holes ahead of them :-( took 4.5 hours to play- could have easily been under 4 hours goal, if that group sped up. If I was playing in Afternoon, I would expect this, but 8:00am on a Weekend morning- please- push slow groups!

Unfortunately, not all players are seasoned and many are beginners. We were all beginners once; remember?

Great Place

GREAT practice areas, short game, putting driving areas best in town,,,public anyway.

Course was in GOOD shape esp for mid July

Greens are fairly fast and true.

Beautiful course with lots of big old trees and PLENTY of water. Very fun and challenging layout.

Will definitely be adding this to the rotation!

Would have gone with great but:

1)the greens looked and rolled like they had been aerated about 3 or 4 weeks ago (in a week or so should be perfect)

2) The traps were wet and hard

3) a couple of fairway and dollar weed cropping up

Always a solid round

I travel to the area from NYC about twice a year, and always play a round here. The staff is very friendly and good about getting you to start on time. I played here on 4th of July, and tee'd off at exactly my tee time.

You really can't beat the practice area - nice wide range and great areas for short game and putting. You won't regret arriving early, since you can use the facilities to warm up each part of your game.

Course layout is great, a couple of challenging holes, and you get chances to go over water and around trees.

Once or twice I've had a problem with pace of play
