Played at 10 Monday morning. Hot, sunny, Golf Now price. No one in front of us, four friends played in four hours. Sand was soft, groomed and consistent. greens were a bit slow but rolled true, fairways were in good shape and ruff was cut so you didn't spend much time looking for balls, played white tees and shot 5 under my handicap.

We golfed after 3 days of rain 6am ger off. I cannot believe how drained the golf course was. I was expecting a muddy Waterfield Court with sand traps unplayable and I got the opposite. We were the first on the Corso pace-of-play was perfect. The golf assistant came by asked how everything was, the only complaint we had were the ball marks on the greens and he advised that he will have his guys look into that, and he also explained they have a lot of outings and playing best ball, most people just picked their ball up and don't fix there call Mark's. Good explanation.

Great course which is not long from the back tees , just a little over 6K yards and has some challenging holes, especially an over water Par 3 on #11 and a few elevated greens, and hole # 15 has a blind green. The have some strategically placed bunkers around several holes. All in all this course is well maintained for a public course. I have played it three times and it's always been a enjoyable experience. Although this course can be challenging it can be a course that you can shoot your best game of golf.

My wife and I played Sunday afternoon. Good weather and not too crowded. That didn’t last. I lost 6 balls in the rough. Not way out in the rough, just a little off the fairway. It needs to be cut. I know, stay on the fairway and you don’t have this problem. However, the foursome ahead of us spent so much time looking for balls as well that on the 13th tee a ranger came by and apologized for the slow play because everyone was looking for their balls in the rough. It was a problem. That group was also young guys who were really slow on the tee, slow on the green, slow whenever the beverage cart came by. There had to be 3 holes open ahead of them by then. We really needed the ranger to come back and he was gone. It was disappointing and we really like this course.

Nice course, the pace of play was a bit of an issue and we played in just over 4 hours and 30 minutes. The greens were in tough shape at times. However, the course was in great shape otherwise, the staff was friendly, and the course had some really fun holes that challenged you. Would definitely play again.

I've played Bloomingdale before and didn't remember there being an issue with the length of the rough. This past time, if the ball wasn't in the middle of the fairway then good luck finding your ball. On multiple holes I found myself searching for way too much time for a ball that was 10ft from the fairway. It wasn't until the last 2 holes that the course was better groomed.

Played more like a $30 course that day...

This is a course I play just about every year. The price is right and they usually keep the course in pretty good condition. Not a very challenging course though. Good course to play for below average golfers as you won’t lose many balls.
