    This is my first time back to Birkdale since the closure for back taxes. I got a great rate of $25 if that is any indication of how poorly they are doing.

    The range balls are junk again the “NEW” ones are already beat up. Many people like myself get a large bucket and just set aside the crap balls. Which are most of them. The range grass was cut, which was nice.

    The fairways are NOT greening up, maybe due to the rain, but they look like Muirfield. The greens are still in bad shape from punch marks. The greens on the front are actually pretty darn nice minus the softness and the ballmarks. No one out there cares. Its in such bad condition that no one thinks it would help to repair the punch marks. The course was surprisingly dry, balls were rolling out. EVERY person I spoke to said they haven’t been getting paid. I spoke to 4 individuals.

    I will not spend more than $25 to play here. I feel so bad for the workers there – because they are trying, there is just NO money being put back into the golf course. I MEAN ZERO!

    Also- ZERO playable bunkers on the golf course. I hit the ball in there and had to rake and replace my ball.

  • It’s ashame what has happened to this course. 2 of favorite course within a hour of Charlotte have gone down drastically. (Tot Hill is the other). Walked this morning in birkdale and decided to walk some of the holes. Bunkers awful and fairways were so high that when they were cutting them today it left clumps all over. We haven’t had much rain this week either.
