For the past two years, this course has been neglected. The greens are not rolled, they use dime size airation holes usually used on fairways, and as a result the greens take 5 weeks to recover and untill then, putting is like playing chinese checkers. The grounds crew took 3 months to pick up the branches from last year's tropical storm Irene, and so they don't have to look after the fairway traps on the 5th, they post "turtle nest" signs all year. Because the groundskeeper doesn't want to work, she keeps the rough very high, and doesn't cut the grass at all just off the fairways, leading to agonizingly slow rounds of golf, with golfers spending more time looking for their balls than hitting them. The sand traps don't have much sand, and are so poorly maintained you can just putt out of them. We are all talking about a petition, but then again, many of us don't even bother coming here anymore. Why she hasn't been fired, only God knows!
