Course Review and Comments

I would play the course again if my host picks up the tab : ). I understand the club is in need of money and is under new management - therefore the course is really neglected. My host was embarrassed by the conditions as I would have been.


Date course was played Sunday 11th of August 2013
Price paid for golf 50
Price comments
Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments The course looks as if it were built around existing housing development. As a result the holes are short and there are a lot of blind shots. This is perhaps one of the worst layouts for a private club. There are 3 or 4 courses in the area that are far better including a small municipal course in town.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments The course is in terrible shape. There is no course beautification projects going on and it is in desperate need of some help. Houses sit on top of the fairway on most holes, look out for the guys mowing their lawns in jeans shorts and no shirt

Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Carpet is worn out and the furnishings are old and dated. I would expect better from a private club that is in the heart of furniture company.
