No covid restrictions whatsoever

No masks inside, staff amd dining with no masks inside, people were taking out flagsticks. Apparently out in the country no one cares. Got plugged on the back nearly 3 hours. No rangers.....just not a good day for here on a 90 plus degree day

Nice course

Nicely kept course and some challenging holes and greens. Only dislike was that it was very crowded and backed up. Had to wait to tee off at every hole.

Improving conditions

This course has come around with conditions improved fro tee to green. The greens are greatly improved, and the bunkers actually have sand in them now.

course plays longer than score card

Loved the course. Will use a riding cart next time because of the hills. Greens are fast/elevated and good condition.

A Pleasure to play well worth the drive

This was our first time to play Tuckaway, what a real hidden gem of a course. The hills were challenging, green small but in great condition. We live near Ohare, most the courses near us are quite flat, Tuckaway is not, very scenic, We tee's off at noon, a lot of course get tied up with groups that are more interested in drinking and having fun, than playing golf on nice afternoons, not here everyone, staff, golfers were there to enjoy the game of golf, sure people having beers but no one staggering etc :)

most improved course ever

its been a over a year since we played there, most improved course i have seen. the overall landscaping was much improved and the course maintenance was near perfect.
clubhouse better and the food offered was good too.
the play was steady and the course a challenge,
friendly staff.
going to make it a regular course to paly on, its worth the drive,

Course has something for everyone.

I was pleasantly surprised how well course is kept. I played courses 3 times the price and they don’t even come close. Job well done to all staff. My only complaint is that groups ahead of me are stilling all the birdies, but that’s my problem. I seem to find them at 19th hole. Ha,ha..

No covid practices?

Apparently covid doesnt apply out in the country. All staff were indoors the bar was reopened with food and everything which is nice. No masks or gloves anywhere. Every group was touching and pulling flagsticks, racks on bunkers so unless i heard something else they are full open i guess. 5 hr round no rangers to push the slow 2 somes everywhere on course. The course itself 8snt bad the greens are solid and slow but the fairways and rough are dried out. Not bad but if i get sick i know where i got it from.
