good course....horrible staff

I golf here a lot. However I feel like I'm bothering the guy whenever I show up. Much nicer people at the other county courses, unfortunately the Ledges is the best courseof the 3 available.

Ledges

Lots of rain and snow in the last 10 days made for some muddy spots, but overall the course is in good shape. The greens were in very good shape. Low lying areas will dry out.

Well maintained

It’s a awesome course, but I got confused in hole 5 and 8, hole 5 it’s next to 13 and you can see it so went to this one but a worker was close by and very helpful to direct to the next hole. But I most definitely will play here again.

Needs more attention

Love this course and the layout along with great natural setting and staff is very friendly. This course needs work though and cutting down the brush and trees is not helping. Needs alot of bunker repairs and more care of the fairways and greens. I'm tired of the county putting all the money in Atwood and Macktown when this course is way better than both of them. I know there's been alot of rain this year but this happens every year with Ledges being put last on the list.

Not Bad, for a country course

Enjoyed this course. Nice pace of play.
Only real knocks I had. Short driving range. Long rough. Greens thick. (Hardly any break)

I will play it again.
Friendly staff.
