Course Review and Comments

I play here because it is reasonably priced and very close to my home and I continue doing so in hopes that someday the course condition improvements that were supposed to have come as a result of the multi-millions of dollars spent on the renovation project will actually come to fruition. That, however, may take a more dedicated management and an experienced golf course grounds keeper who knows with he or she is doing and has a desire to provide area golfers with a first class condition experience.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments The design is fair and pleasant with a variety of challenges. Not a championship course design, but decent for a municipal.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Condition is the most disappointing aspect of Shary Golf Course especially after the several millions of dollars spent about six years ago to "improve" it with a state-of-the-art sprinkler system that supposedly can deliver water, grass seed, weed killer and fertilizer. Problem is apparently no one was taught how to properly use it. Grass on all fairways is always thin and weedy with large bare patches. And most tee boxes are pathetic. The condition of greens, however, varies from sometimes very nice to other times just awful. If the staff and management ever gets a handle on grounds maintenance, this would be a very nice course.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments The best I can say is that the staff isn't ALWAYS inattentive and border line surly.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Facilities are about average. Club house was much improved several years ago as part of the millions spent to "renovate" the course.
Course Overall Rating
Play Again Yes
