Played 3-JAN with an $85 Golf Moose coupon. Very strange day. Tee time was for 9:04. Arrived at 8AM and was told due to a frost delay, everything was pushed back 30 min. Went to the range where I was told I could only hit off the mats until further notice. After stretching, waiting a bit and hitting a few, we were told at 845 that the first tee was now open, they were all caught up and we were third up. We rushed and teed off at 8:55 only to be backed up after the second hole. Saw the marshal on 7 who said the group ahead of us had one or two open holes in front of them and would push them. We were on them again at 9 and never saw the marshal again. Two or three groups on top of us as well but no where to go. Never saw a beverage cart the entire round.
Course was so so. I'll offer my ratings similar to the previous post:
Tee Boxes: 4/10. Uneven and in need of coverage. A LOT of sand divot repair marks. Gopher holes on several of them!
Fairways: 6/10. Good lies with ok roll out. Brown and yellow mostly, but not thin. One or two holes (hole 5) were completely soaked/water logged close to the green. Sprinkler or drainage issues
Rough: 5/10. Agree, hit or miss. In places it was thin with just dirt, and in others it was a club thick.
Bunkers: 5/10. I was in them all day. Decent sand on some but a few others with exposed netting. Traps on 9 on the left side were beyond horrible
Greens: 7/10. They were pretty pure but A LOT of ball marks.
Also noticed a lot of downed trees and un-raked leaves between holes. With the recent winds and rain, I'll cut some slack, but if I were paying the rack rate ($135/$180), I would be furious. I see Underpar now has an $85 rate with free replay. Makes sense as I think it will take a few months to get the gopher issue under control, tee boxes back and Oak Creek back into the shape it once was. Even $85 might be too much to pay at this point.» Close
