    The good – greens were in good shape and rolled pretty well, though they were not as fast and smooth as usual for Ballantyne. Plenty of beverage access before, during and at the turn. The starter and cart crew were courteous and helpful. The bad – the price (!) — this round was a terrible value compared to other local courses given… the bunkers, plain terrible. The majority had standing water but even those that didn’t played like dried up river beds. Every one my group landed in had to be played as ground under repair and it was difficult to find a playable spot. This really looked like negligent maintenance, like they hadn’t been touched in weeks. I was also not happy that it was cart path only even though the fairways were fine (I noticed the next morning that the cart rule was 90*). The tee boxes were also very bad — many were very thin and muddy. Overall, these were course conditions I’d expect to see at a $40 course at best, not one that charges $82 for an afternoon round. I will not be back to play at those rates.

  • Update from 8/4: I sent an email to the GM Woody Allen and his team invited me and my entire group back out to play on the house. Conditions were much improved, especially the bunkers. The staff was great and I was pleased with their awesome customer service. I’m confident in coming back to play now, knowing that if anything isn’t right the staff will make it so.
