Brought a group of golfers down from Wisconsin. The course is in very poor condition and we won't be back.

Budget issues

Good Steve Smyers layout, but tons of deferred maintenance and lots of rain recently. Staff was very friendly and outgoing. How about all hands on deck and Let's get the place back in shape please!!!!!

There were lots of bare spots in the fairways, and I know it has rained a lot, but it's August! Bunkers had so much Bermuda creep it engulfed the rake on a couple of them--how about a little edging or even some Round Up!

The fourth hole has a forced carry over a creek by the tee that the view of the entire fairway was blocked by overgrowth.

Very disappointed

Tee boxes were in very poor condition. Fairways also in bad shape. Most bunkers had grass & weeds growing in them. Greens were recently aerated which seemed unusual for time of year. Most courses do this later in fall. Did seem to roll pretty smooth however. Expected much better conditions for the $49 it cost to play. Also got stuck behind 6 foursomes that were involved in an outing. This was after we called ahead and specifically asked if they had any outings scheduled that day before we made the hour drive. We were told no outings scheduled that day. Took over 5 hours to play on a course that is way overpriced.

Pleasant surprise

Have played this course several time in past few years. Ownership has changed but issue aren't the course. Marion is at an ebb in economic activity so there isn't enough use. Which is a shame. Its a pleasant layout, with a few really fun holes, and the reminder offering solid golf challenges.
