Been a long time (2 years) since I last played Skybrook so I was really excited as I remember this fun layout always being in great condition.
Unfortunately what I found this time round was shocking. A lot of the greens are having big problems with crabgrass everywhere, and on many greens, it makes them un-puttable.
I know the old story that the "Trail is struggling financially" yada yada yada, but this is atrocious.
The disappointing thing is that on the par 5 fourth, the crab grass has completely overtaken the front of the green only, but the middle and back of the green are fine. So where do you think they put the pin? yep, in the front of the green, in the middle of the crabgrass patch.
That is my disappointment with the Trail, it's one thing to be struggling for money but there's no excuse for just plain not making an effort.
The trail staff need to spend the day at Charlotte National to see how to squeeze the most out of a limited budget and how to truly CARE about a golf course and your customers.
DO NOT PAY MORE THAN $30 to play this course until they have sorted out their greens.
