Wedgewood 5 9 20

Course was in a slight frost delay, teed off maybe 10-15 minutes later than our tee time. Course was in good shape, we were met at the clubhouse and the first tee by two young ladies who gave us the run down on the course protocol. Pace of play walking was pretty decent, we only had a couple short waits on the twosome in front of us, and completed our round in 3hrs 45 minutes. Course is walkable, fairways and greens were well mowed. I been playing here since 1981.

Really good par 4’s.

This course is a real test especially the par 4’s. Can’t wait to come back. Played in 3. 1/2 hours. It was pretty wet but the course was in great shape.

Sun new COVID rules

great to be back out after a month. New rules of 2somes at every 15 mins. Made for a faster pace of play , even walking. Got 18 in 3.5 hours with a couple of 15 mins break. Faster than a normal weekend with a cart. Wish they had the beer cart out! But new rules.

Dry

Course conditions were very dry especially on the back new side still trying to get grass to come in... many bare spots with weeds coming up. They did a great job with the pace of play, but a little pricy for conditions. Course adjusted for woman’s play, which was a nice surprise. Will be a nice course when they get it to take... until then they should lower the pricing.

It's getting better

This is the second time I've played since WEDGEWOOD has revamped. The grass on the back nine is growing but there is a lot of bare spots. The greens on th new holes are great .

Redo is GREAT. Course still a great challenge

Course redesign worked out great! As most have said, they have reversed 9s. Starting with the now new 14th hole...fairway has grown nicely. 15 is neat 130yd par 3. 16 is cool dogleg right par 4 with lots of bunkering on left side. 17 is a 180yd par 3. 18 is a long par 5 with original green from the old 9th hole. Meaning your approach shot can be somewhat long over the water if not for a good drive and 2nd shot to setup short approach.

We were a twosome and were allowed to go off back 9 to start our round and zipped through 18 holes on a Friday 10am tee-time in 3 hours! Starter was super nice gentleman and saw that 1st tee box was loading up with people. Lucky timing for us that no one was making the turn at that time. Will definitely play again! Awesome renovation Wedgewood!!

Wedgewood survives the redesign,

Some recent reviews have been negative but I think they're groundless. We found the course to be a lot of fun. Sure, the grass has to grow in some spots.The cart paths need some work., But the course was fine in the areas where you play,

The sand traps had real sand.. The greens rolled fine, although some of the new ones were slow.

The par 5 on the back none that got redone as a short Par 4 definitely needs some yardage markers. My intuition failed me, and I overshot the green. On a long course like this one, that was the only time I was long.

New layout is good, some holes still undet repair.

The reversal of the front and back 9 to accomodate the car dealership is very playable. Just remember the 1st tees has moved to the former 10th location. The course is in good condition except for a few holes still under construction/repair.

Greens are in excellent shape, and the bunkers actually have a playable sand base ( not the case on many of the local courses at this price point and playing level.)

This course is playable on many holes by beginner, but would be difficult on many holes if it was your 1st round or two. Great for intermediate, and interesting enough for an advanced player. Friendly and helpful staff.

Good Design/Layout But Poorly Maintained - Dry and Hard

Apparently, the back nine has recently been reconfigured and includes newly constructed holes and revised holes. Wadsworth, a first class golf course construction firm, did the construction work and the physical layout is now very good including sodded fairways and large greens.. But it was clear today that no water was being applied to the fairways and much of the newly constructed rough areas. Literally, these extensive areas are brown and rock hard ... have to believe the sod will be lost if water is not put into play immediately. Surprisingly, a course employee told me that no watering was being done because a new transformer is needed for the sprinkling system. If true, this isn't good planning considering newly constructed holes in particular and the course in general need water in July and August to survive! Hope this year is used to enable the new holes to survive and mature ... the design and overall layout of the course are really quite good. Best of luck to the Wedgewood team.

False advertising

I booked a tee time for this course and was excited because they just finished the back nine. Well we got to the course and they told us only the front nine is open and we had to play it twice. Playing the front nine twice was not worth the price we had paid for the round. The back nine had people teeing off on it the entire time so we were very disappointed. We were also told those were friends of friends so thats how it is.
The pace of play was at a crawl It would have been a six hour round if we didn't say something to the cart girl on the back nine. Ohh i mean the second time playing the front nine.
The food was good cart girl was great. But staff whom worked their obviously could give no care about the golfer.
We actually were just speaking about how golf courses have lost all customer service skills on our way to this course. Its okay that we were treated as such. Not everyone has their A game every day. We will choose to bring our business elsewhere.

Only reason I gave the course condition 4 star's is because it's been raining consistently and it was super soggy and truthfully out of their control.

Good course, however ...

Front nine closed for the season! Pace was slow because everyone is on the back nine. I would play there again as long as all 18 holes are open.

Under construction, but worth it

Played on a Sunday afternoon, finished 18 in 3.5 hours, do the pace was awesome, they are doing some construction on a few holes and it’s a little rough, but overall the course is in great shape and it made for a really fun afternoon.
