“Course needs a lot of work and some remedial training for its players”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

Okay, it is February, so maybe I should cut them some slack until spring,

But I am a local resident who plays here frequently due to the convenience of being able to almost walk to the clubhouse.

Over the last 2-3 years, the maintenance of the course has really suffered. The course is loaded with senior players during the week and both courses are packed on good-weather weekends. So the course sees plenty of divots and pitch marks during any given week.

There seems to be a real problem at this course with people who don't know how to (or don't care to) fill divots with sand mix or fix pitch marks on the greens. In the last month alone I have played here with a group of seniors and then paired as a single with a couple beginners. Both rounds featured 3 guys taking deep divots in the fairways and 3 guys leaving pitch marks all over the greens. I even stopped once and tried to train a guy how to properly fix a pitch mark. He looked at me like I was an alien from outer space.

Perhaps the rangers at the course (there are several) need to make occasional pit stops greenside... chat up the 4-somes coming and going on the greens and give them a simple, "hey guys and gals, don't forget to repair your pitch marks". This may go a long way to getting this course in better shape.
