Course Review and Comments

I have golfed maybe 1 dozen times at
Ballymeade over the last few years, often bringing along new golfers,
some of whom returned. I had golfed there in the early spring this year,
at which time the driving range was being redone and the course itself
was in not great shape, which I attributed to a long New England winter.
So this past weekend, Saturday, I booked a foursome that included two
golfers new to Ballymeade. They read up about it being a premier Cape
course (from your site). But were we surprised. The parking lot was
largely empty, which we found odd given that it was Labor Day weekend
and the weather was great. We soon found out why. Your course has just
tumbled down hill in the past months, to be frank and honest. Right from
the start the tee boxes were in terrible shape, with ruts, uneveness
everywhere, and lots of crab grass that had grown on many if not most of
them. The fairways particularly on the front nine were mediocre, looking
almost like some major tournament had been played on them recently. But
the biggest disappointment was the greens. They were just awful,
specially on the front. Bear spots, holes, burnt or just dead grass, and
poorly mowed too. We had played the day before at Cape Cod and that
course is just in far superior shape, and for less money.
