Tee boxes - above average Fairways - excellent Greens - below average Played the course more times than I can count in the last 5 years. The greens were the best the crew can make them, but more than half of them have dead spots. They put the flags in the best spots,...
I wish all of us golfers would just simply state the conditions of the course rather than try to act like we are experts in the turfgrass field. I see all too many times people make comments that couldnt be more false. Recently there have been two posts about courses greens being overtaken by “Poa Annua”, this seems very unlikely considering it is a winter season grass. Sure we all know carolina trail courses are garbage, but I highly doubt it has poa annua. Lets leave the turf diagnostics up to the experts who work their a**es off to keep our courses looking great
Poa annua?!? I called it poa anna! And yes, I was wrong. Please replace all my “poa anna” comments with “wrong grass” or “bad grass”. As for those hardworking greens keepers, where are they? The state of public golf is sad, there just aren’t enough courses with real course superintendents who are paying attention to the overall course conditions. Let’s give credit to the courses that seem to be really trying and/or willing or able to spend the money. The top of that list for me is Glen Oaks, Verdict Ridge, Red Bridge.
