If you like crabgrass, this is the place to play :-)
First time playing the Orchards this year and I was really disappointed. Crabgrass on tee boxes, fairways, and most greens. The rough (also thick with crabgrass in places) needed to be mowed...finding the ball in it was quite the challenge. I wouldn't recommend playing here unless you get a great deal and you can put up with the course conditions.
Grass in fairways and greens improving a little.
Made the turn and found out a full course league just started. We stopped playing.
There was no mention of this at check in.
The Orchards is a great little course with a real fun layout. Course is in good shape with the only thing I would have liked were the greens to be a little faster, although with the elephants buried under some.....what's the expression...be careful what you wish for!
The tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in great shape. Service was above average in the clubhouse and I was pleasantly surprised there was a refreshment cart out.
Thank you for your great review. We are glad you had a great experience with us. Come back and see us again real soon!
Has a lot of hazards. IE: Houses, Water, Rough.
Course is spread out thru the Subdivision.
Thanks for the review, we hope to see you back out again real soon!
very windy that day.
most fairways have areas that are grassless.
Will be a challenge for the grounds crew to get even growth this year.
Thanks for coming out and braving the wind. We definitely have a few areas that we are working on in our fairways, but we are confident the course will be great all year long. Thanks again, and we hope to see you on the first tee again very soon!
Thanks for the great review! Hopefully the weather will allow us to play some over the winter and you can come back out! Happy Holidays!
Tees bad shape some not even cut, fairways horrible you can't play the ball down and the greens are slow with many patches and obstacles on them! Sand traps not maintained. They do have a course marshal riding around hawking balls! I'm going to wait till next spring before I any think about playing this course!!
Kycat56, sorry to hear you had a poor experience on Sunday. We are working on improving our fairways. We are aware that they do have some spots that are tough if you are playing the ball down. The greens may have been a bit on the slower side, but there is only 1 green that has any "patches and obstacles" on it. We have added some new sod to that green to improve its conditions. We are also working on the sand traps. We are in the process of removing some of them, and we apologize if they weren't in as good of conditions as you would have liked.
As for our marshals riding around hawking balls. That is inexcusable. We will make sure that will not be happening in the future. They have a presence on the course to help our customers have a more enjoyable experience. They are there to help the golfers, not keep their own golf bags stocked. We would love to talk to you more about your experience. If you'd like to give us a call, please do at (618) 233-8921 and we can discuss making your next trip to The Orchards a better one.
Playing in a sand castle
Greens were more sand than grass and nothing was said at the time tee time was made
Matt, we are very sorry nothing was mentioned to you about the recent aerification of the greens. As you know, punching and sanding the greens is a necessary evil in the golf business. We will do a better job of informing customers in the future, and we hope that you enjoyed the rest of your round, and come back to see us again soon.
Thank you for the great review! We hope to see you again real soon!
