Greens in Bad Shape

I had played Lake of the Woods previously and it was in great shape. Today the greens were horrible. Someone told me they had an algae problem, but the greens were horrid. Almost all had bare spots galore. A couple of the greens were not cut and was like putting on the fairway. One had a sprinkler problem and had a literal stream running through the middle of the green. Otherwise the fairways and sides were cut and in good shape. Nice course if the greens are repaired.

Greens are getting better

Greens were rough with new plugs growing in. Fairways are in good condition. Staff are excellent. They offered to regrip my clubs and bring them to me on the course.

Green condition is very bad. There were multiple greens where dirts were exposed.

Bad greens

This is my local course and is usually in good shape. It is in terrible shape right now. The greens are awful. Some are slow and some are fast as it appears they are trying to recover from some earlier issues this summer when they had an irrigation issue. However, some of the fairways are also in bad shape and it appears they are too dry. I am not planning to play this course again this year, even though we can get a good rate through GolfNow.

I enjoyed the course. It is an older public course. The tees, fairway and rough were in good shape. A few of the green on the front side had dead spot through out the greens and even within 10 to 15 feet of the cup. Some of the sand traps were full of sand and some had barely any sand in them. I liked the layout of the course.

My home course

I don’t belong to a club because this is just such a good value. Nice people, good condition overall (had a problem with some vandalism that they are working to overcome), and I LOVE the layout. Greens are in good shape. The best part of the course is that it’s part of the forest preserve and there is wildlife everywhere. LOTS of trees so keep it straight or bring lots of balls.
