    Well, with the nice weather everyone and their brother was out playing Saturday. I thought I would try Waterford since it was one of the only courses with room on their tee sheet. I called in the morning and there was a half hour frost delay but the pro said they should be caught up by our tee time at 11:18. We went off about 11:40 but ground to a halt by the second tee. Waited on every shot and every tee without a ranger in site. We abandoned the round after a 3 hour front nine for a rain check. Not sure what was going on out there – maybe they crammed too many groups out after the frost delay. Conditions could of been a factor. The new greens seemed to be extra hard and quick and the pin positions on a few holes were ridiculous. I have played other local courses with the same type of greens and they were not baked out like these were. Also, the rest of the course as in pretty dismal shape – from the unraked muddy bunkers to the torn up cart paths – pretty beaten up all around. It is really too bad, I thought I would play here a lot more after they replaced the greens but it looks like I will have to go elsewhere until I hear different.

  • Unfortunately, this seems to be the modus operandi of all the Carolina Trail courses. Slow play, poor conditions and bad service have become the rule at the Trail courses rather than the exception (at least in my experience).
