The Carolina Trail strikes again. Played Birkdale on Sunday and the round took 5 hours and 15 minutes. To be fair the course was in pretty good condition however some of the blue tees were placed at the white placements. The biggest issue was my twosome was (unwillingly) paired with a SLOW playing twosome that consistently kept us behind. To make matters worse when this was explained to a ranger he responded with a dismissive attitude. Bottom line is I am staying away from Carolina Trail courses altogether going forward. They just don’t get it.
