Course was in bad condition.

Greens were in bad shape. Fairways were not mowed. The rough was Tall. Nice treed course. Hope they can get it back into shape.

Unfortunate.

Course maintenance poor. Most greens in poor condition. Many traps appear to have no work done on them all season. It's a fun layout, but really unfortunate decline.

Disappointed golfer

I have played this course before, and had a wonderful time. However, I was disappointed with the course conditions today. Most of the greens are suffering from significant turf loss. The speed of the greens was inconsistent throughout the course, and they leaned towards the slow and bumpy end of the scale. Additionally, most of the bunkers had very little sand, and due to a recent rain storm, they were basically unplayable. On the bright side, the pace of play was excellent, and the course is in a peaceful location. In fact, we observed white-tail deer on the course on two occasions.

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.
