Just OK for the money

Went off early as a twosome behind a twosome so pace was great. Course was in good condition with a few holes CPO. The price is a little steep for where and what it is ... $57 .. That all being said had a decent day.

The Wetlands

The staff was great! However the tee boxes where in bad shape and the greens fuzzy. It is a very interesting course and has some really nice golf holes. Lots of forced carries and water on several holes come into play. I have played this course many time in the past and don't recall seeing the course in this bad of a shape.

First time in a couple years playing here. Very hot and humid. Water coolers are on the course and full at 1pm. Conditions were above average and I could see work being done to the places that needed it. Greens got faster as the day got hotter. A couple dog legs, a couple blind tee shots, a little bit of water. About an hour away for me but I’ll always get down there at least once a year. Worth it and recommend.

Much improved over the past couple years.

This is one of two public courses within 15-20 minutes of my house. I have deemed this my "home course" and I am really happy to see the improves over the past couple years. The course conditions were really nice yesterday, even with some HEAVY rains the two days before. We have had issues in the past with pace. They had two even yesterday and we didn't run into any issues until 17. Even with that, our round was 4 hours on the dot. Can not complain about that.

I have golfed there twice in the past week. I will golf there a lot more this summer.

Thanks!

Worth the drive

We live in Carroll County and had not played at Wetlands before. We were looking for something different and chose this course based on the GolfNow price and the interest in something new. Greens were in great shape. Fairways too. Some pretty challenging shots were needed especially for never having played there before. I think we will keep this one on our "lookout list" to play again!

Wetlands, May 20, 2019

The course is in very nice condition. Some areas under repair, which is good because it means they are making improvements. Greens were in very good condition.

Wetlands golf outing

Course continues to improve. Greens varied from fast to a bit sluggish. Not sure why. Biggest thing I saw was that there is nothing with the carts to allow us to reseed divots. I would also recommend that other guests make an effort to repair ball marks in the greens. There were a few places where the green was bumpy. Some of the holes seemed to have the sod lifted at the hole making a good putt suddenly turn away from the hole within the last couple inches. Very frustrating!

An okay course for the money

The course is getting there. It was much better now that the weather has started to warm up and the grass is beginning to fill in. Some of the sand traps are more fine stone than sand. Greens are a bit bumpy but pretty average speed wise. There were a lot of grounds people working around the course and I was glad to see that they are trying to make the course better.

Nice course

This course has wide fairways and very large greens. Most holes are fairly easy, number 18 is a challenge It plays around 6000 yards from the whites. Layout and condition of course was fine. One drawback is that you can't take the cart to your car, but the walk isn't too far.

Playable

Wetlands has a unique layout that challenges you to hit precise shots if you want to score low. For the first day of spring this course was in very good shape. The fairways are plenty wide so it is playable but if you want to have a good shot at getting on in regulation, then you have to hit it to a particular part of the fairways.

Played Presidents Day 2019

Course was in good shape for late February. A little soft in spots but did not do cart path only which was incredible. Greens were in surprisingly good shape and the staff Is always friendly. I always enjoy rounds at Wetlands golf course! Highly recommend.
