Course Review and Comments

Since it is the only course in Transylvania where to go else. However the first nine are opened since some weeks now and the course has to mature. Hopefully the course will manage to invest some money in drainage, sprinklers and good grass for fairways and greens. Above all the team of the caddy master should be trained how to manage and maintain a course. Next to that is is a wonderful area. You will find grass snakes natrix natrix (not dangerous) in the rough. All kind of finches (Fringillidae) are singing their hart out and birds of prey will circle above you while playing. The whole is still relaxing during the week since in the morning and early afternoon you will most probably be the only one playing (no stress of faster or slower players behind or before you. The design is extremely wonderful with a view of Alba Iulia and its surrounding mountains on the background. Still the course is cheap (EUR 14 per day) but a price hike would be good to fund the urgently needed investments

Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments no sprinklers, bad grass used, passenger car with trailer driving on the course to transport lawn mower. Take care not to get the ball in the tracks of these cars. greens are sandy and not flat. Still much to be done
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Balls (lake balls) are relatively very expensive. Nice an good teaching pro (Gabriel). Green keepers are new to the job and there is room for improvement. Caddy master is fluent in Romanian but not in any other language
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments The clubhouse in fact is the place to pay the fee and to go to the toilet. However opposite of the course the is a completely new hotel/restaurant build (May 2008)very good hospitality
