5 Greens Under Repair

I went last week for the first time and had nothing but great things to say about the course. Today five of the greens were not in play due to maintenance. Another three greens had so much sand on them it was like putting in a bunker. At a minimum, staff should be warning players. Even better would signage at the hole noting that the hole is placed on the approach. Best would be all of the above and a discount on the greens fee.

Tight and beaten up

I’m not sure how this course rates 4 stars, it was in terrible shape with most of the fairway grass dead, plenty of bare dirt patches and beaten up tee boxes. The pace of play was atrocious, with up to 10 minute waits on every tee box. I left after 9 holes because of this combination of disappointments. Don’t plan on returning.

Good value. I’ll go again

Grounds were rough. To be expected with a hot dry summer during Covid. Definitely will go play again though. Can’t wait for the weather to break so the ground can recover.

Merrimack

Shot making course, a lot of contour. Good condition. Finding trouble on course is easy if you haven't played before.

Rangers Don't monitor Pace of Play

I think this course used to be in much better condition but they seem to be watering the greens mid day and burning them out so there's a lot of improvement to be made there. The Rangers are obsessed with yelling at people riding the carts on the rough. When I asked them to ride out onto the course and monitor pace of play the ranger rode halfway up the fairway and turned around. There needs to be more attention paid on pace of play and less obsession with where carts are going.

First time playing here

Very nice course. Little expensive for the multiple
Par 3’s but it was nice. Offers great play for all
Levels. Can’t wait to go back when the clubhouse/bar is open. It looks very nice.

Great course layout and value

Played here for the first time with my friend and we’re impressed by the friendly staff and waitstaff when we got there and had a beer before the round. Layout was challenging but not overly difficult for the average golfer. Value was good for the money and we will definitely be coming back again soon.

Staff had one or two polite members but others were horrible

The women at the pro shop did not honor the price I paid for the round on GolfNow and instead just started getting extremely upset borderline tears.

Great time as always

Only reason for 4 stars is dead spots in a lot of the fairways... totally understandable in this drought! Absolutely love this place and will come back again and again
