"Worth playing"

7/2/22: Review by Steve K

It was a wet morning. Greens were super slow and lumpy (not true). Needed a mow badly. But conditions were good. Quite a lit of ground under repair and some standing water on some par 3s. But for the money, a surprisingly good round. Course itself is very forgiving...

I have mixed feelings about this post. I know that if there is a group out on the course that is clearly not keeping up that I would have to agree with what people are saying here. But sometimes you just have a bad hole though and when the course is crowded, bad holes will be more common. You have a bad hole and make a few extra strokes, try to make the time up on the next hole. When it’s crowded and I knock one off in the woods, I give a quick look for my ball if I don’t see it the first time through I take a drop and go on. This stuff can have an accordion effect on the course and make it seem like there is a slow group ahead of you. It can also make it look like one group is lagging a little when it wasn’t their fault. I know it would upset me if the marshal stopped to tell me to keep u! p when it’s not my fault. Stuff like that is enough for me not to come back to that course, ever. If your marshal is on top of things I guess this won’t be a problem but at the same time I don’t want to have the marshal drive down my cart path every other hole. Part of the problem is that there are not a couple of golf courses in town any more. There are plenty of golf courses to choose from. If one place makes you mad you can ban the place and not miss it one bit. I think golf courses are afraid of this. I know on the Golf Channel every so often they talk about the lack of new golfers playing the game. They talk about ways of making the game easier to attract more people into the sport. I don’t figure a marshal telling a group of newer golfers to hurry up is going to help. Many people also work and don’t have time to golf during the week so golfing during the week is not a possibility. I guess the bottom line is I’m afraid of the micro managing marshal (an! d you know there will be some) out on the course that is fee! ling like he’s not doing his job if he’s not rushing people. It’s not good for golf and especially not good for that course. If you are a person on a strict schedule I guess this problem is upsetting. I guess I have a different feeling about all of this. If I’m golfing on a weekend, I know it’s going to be slow. I go to the course expecting it. I can’t think of to many places that I would rather be than on the course. If the round takes 5 hours instead of 4 it was just longer I spent doing something that I enjoy. I am in no hurry to get it over with, I golfing, what could be better? I take the time to enjoy the scenery, talk to the people I’m golfing with, think about my shot, and take a few more practice swings. To me it’s just a part of weekend golfing. I’m not trying to start a fight or anything, just an opinion from the other side of the coin.
