Good day in Monroe Georgia
This course is a great example of older small town Country Club golf like I grew up with in small town Georgia. Most of the holes were wide and straight fairways with a lot of up and down to elevated greens with challenging bunkers. The elevations made it more than enough challenge. Other holes were short but with a lot of dogleg and other interesting features that provided more than enough defense. My only suggestion to the course superintendent is that the fairways need a VERY serious aeration......they are much too hard. But all in all, this was a very fair, fun and different course to play and our group will definitely go back.
Second time playing, course is drat layout (a little on easy side), but greens roll true.
Good day, Good course, Good deal & Good people
Overall course in good shape from tee boxes to green. Some tee boxes were hard & difficult to get tee in ground. Got excellent deal off a golf booking website. Water cold in coolers on a hot day. Left a club behind & mentioned to individual in clubhouse. Someone found, turned into clubhouse, they called me to pick up. Thanks. Recommend as a fun older course
Challenging shots to elevated greens
Add 2 clubs for most uphill shots. Maybe 3 if into the wind. Greens are undulating and challenging but in great condition.
Monroe CC Worth the drive
The course is in very good condition and is worth playing any chance you get.
The only improvement that they need is the sand traps, due to the wet early spring. They will have the bunkers groomed in no time.
Course was in better than expected condition for this time of year. Starting to green up nicely. Greens were good.
Course could not have been in better condition. Greens / turf / bunkers all in great shape. Thx for a great round with my sons. Oh. And I beat em both. Ha
Decent course 5 some wouldn’t let single play through
Decent course, a lot of uphill greens but nice. Plaid on a Friday by myself and ran up on 5 some on hole 14. I know one player was an employee. They didn’t even make an attempt to let me play through. I understand they were probably members but it was the most ridiculous situation I’ve ever scene. It would of taken me about 5 minutes to get out of their way but nope...... I guess they own the course. I had to Watch these guys for about 45 minutes. But maybe that’s what they wanted. It wasn’t worth it.
First off, I understand Monroe GCC is a membered-owned club. That's the reason given for how they do certain things, but I just wanted to state that I understand that.
Had the first tee time today (because I've read pace of play can be rough behind said members) on a wet, cold Monday morning. I was just happy to be out with the sticks! I was ready to enjoy an early morning walk to keep the blood flowing. Upon checking in, I was strictly told "nope walking is only for members, sir."
I've never heard that one before...
I offered to pay for a cart and walk anyways, but I was met with the same flexibility of a sturdy two-by-fore -- "it's a member-owned club, sorry you can't walk. That's their right."
Okay...I'm not sure this is the best way to win over a new resident in the area, but hey, they can do what they want. They're member-owned. And I'll have to take my ambling elsewhere.
As for the actual course, it was what you'd expect. It's a classic, country layout with surprisingly good conditions for the time of year. Greens were smooth & fast (besides some patches of trouble about 1/3rd of the greens are having). Big-picture wise, trees are overgrown and encroaching on many tee shots not providing many options off the tee (but hey, you gotta execute). It's a fun parkland layout (so not many homes to contend with) with some cool elevation changes.
I understand the tensions of managing public play and tending to your members, but go fully private if you want to only cater to them. See how well that goes. I encourage to foster a different attitude towards visitors and really treat them as guests (and maybe future members!).
Fairways in good shape. Greens were bumpy and sparse.
Very disappointed that a fivesome was allowed to play in front of our group. This made or very slow play. Previously range balls were included - not any more.
