Several greens had a disease which need attention. Tee box and fairways are in good condition.

Had a slight problem with the Ranger as he felt we were playing slow. Originally he based it upon us having a hole open in front of us. Then our time of play showed 12 minutes behind, which was basically caused by the member we were playing with. The guest of the member said they always have problem with speed of play because of the member-s erratic play. After the Ranger threatened to make us skip a hole, because of the pace of play; caused me to triple boggie and double boggie the following holes in our effort to speed up the pace of play. He did acknowledge and expressed his appreciation of our effort to increase speed of play. We never saw a Ranger on the back nine. I spoke with the Pro Shop afterwards to inquire the speed of play for a round. They indicated they prefer 4 hours with 4 hours fifteen being the norm and 4 hours thirty minutes as the slowest pace. We completed the front nine in 2 hours ten minutes and the total round in four hours fifteen. The member played much better on the back nine which allowed us a quicker pace.

It was a good thing we had a discounted rate to play otherwise if we had to pay full value and were harassed for a member-s pace of play I would never consider playing here again.

Would like to see the course conditions in the Fall.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area
