The greens are looking better. Just some advice with the clubhouse, when someone walks in it is probably a good idea to greet them insead of not look at them like they dont exist.

Nice course

Nice course, interesting layout, fairly scenic. Conditions just fair. Apparently they had problems with their irrigation system last year and a few of the greens haven't fully recovered. All in all, a nice enough course, but nothing too special.

If you have 8 hours to waste then go

The worst golfing experience I’ve ever had they are doing everything they can to make money and stacked on top of Each other. It was so bad that my wife you have a bad back and could not play was charged $10 to ride and watch my son and I. I have never had a golf course charge for that the play was so slow in front of me that we waited Anywhere from 10 to 25 minutes every hole The Ranger even told us to speed up but when I explained that the golfers in front where the hold up he would not tell them to speed up or let us Through. The course conditions were terrible and will not play there again. There are to many others that show the golfer respect and quality they pay for

Course condtion

They still have a long way to go in improving the condition of the course. A lot of basic maintenance had not been done for years and it's starting to show. Other improvements being done presently is a good start keep it up.

I wouldn’t

Course was in really bad shape. They hadn’t taken care of the leaves from last fall. Greens were atrocious. It was like putting over a minefield in spots. I read some reviews from late 2018 that it was the same so nothing has been done since. It was disappointing because I had played the course around 2013 or so and it was great so it appears to be in a freefall.

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.

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.
