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,...
Just a minor gripe, but I played Tradition yesterday, which is usually one of my favorite courses, and they had the pin placements on the GPS system all screwed up. It wouldn’t be a big deal if this were the first time, but the last several times I’ve been out there I’ve gotten bad info from the GPS. They should atleast color code the flags so you can atleast double check the GPS. I can’t tell you how dissappointing it was to hit several “great shots” to front hole locations, only to get up to the green and see that I was facing a 40ft putt b/c the pin was in the back. Other than that, it was ok.
Heard good things about the tradition so we took advantage of the coupon. Fairways were plush and the greens were fast. Great deal if you can make it out there… but the pace of play was horrible. Our 11:34 tee time was pushed back to 11:50 and we waited on every tee from 1-18. Obviously they are just trying to cram in as many tee times as they can for the business. if you have time to spare it’s def worth a shot.
Played The Tradition today. Can’t argue with the price, but I have to say that I got what I payed for. Somehow, the course was super saturated even though there hasn’t been any notable rain lately. Therefore, the greens were in TERRIBLE shape, and every putt bounced and wobbled it’s way to the hole. Additionally, several bunkers were flooded and obviously haven’t been maintained in a long while. The rest of the course was in fair shape, but I also suffered the fate of several mud balls, even with a driver in hand.
Overall, I love the layout at Tradition, and wish they would put a bit of money into the course. It’s a much better layout than Birkdale, Divide, or Charlotte Golf Links for sure.
Can any one give an update on conditions at the Tradition?
Played the tradition Today, we were pleasantly surprised by the conditions, some teeboxes were rough. The genes were in great shape, esp. Considering the disaster they were in.
Hope the new owner group keeps up the good work!
