As a member, I play here 5-6 times a week.

As a rule, the course is in pretty good condition and the grounds crew guys work very hard to keep it as nice as they can. The real problem here is that the fairways are only cut three times a week and, when they are cut, they are not cut short enough. You never have a clean lie, always have grass between your club and the ball making it very difficult to put any spin on the ball and hold the greens, which are normally quite good.

Some days, it is almost impossible to distinguish the fairway from the rough.

The other problem here is pace of play. The course is overbooked, they do not enforce the rules about no fivesomes, and they do not maintain any control on the course. Almost never see a ranger and when a ranger is on duty, they have him spending far too much time bringing carts out, picking up range balls, etc. The ranger needs to be on the course maintinaing control. Keep walkers off the course, stop kids from playing in the fairways and riding bikes on the cart paths. Perhaps they are waiting until someone is hurt or worse then files a large lawsuit. Any mention of any of this to the pro shop is laughed at and disregarded.

They need to take charge and find a better way to manage the course.
