Angry Golf course conditions

Played Bonifay yesterday and the greens were in great shape but the rest of the course was hard and dry...need more water!

Played Roosevelt today and it should be closed down. This is the worse I have ever seen this course!

Where is our CDD management???

People should read the post before attacking! I praised a Bonifay...I complained about Roosevelt executive. The people who control this site placed my post here!

I played Palmer (Laurel Valley > Riley) yesterday. The course was about the same as always. It was a little dry and brown in spots but overall it was in good shape.

I tried to put in a request for next Friday and every championship course only had nine holes open, and Mallory still totally closed. I applied for Bonifay (Ft. Walton), Evans Praire (Egret) and Havana (Kenya) at 1:00 for a group of 3. I don't know if we'll get anything since there is only one nine open.

I didn't select some of the other courses because the nine they had open was my least favorite. Belle Glade (Seminole), Cane Garden (Hibiscus) and Glen View and Lopez I felt was too far to drive to play just nine.

Not an attack.... told you how/where to complain if you thought "the course was hard and dry...need more water!" Stating it here does nothing but cause hard feelings.

And what is a CCD? I really don't know. Or did you mean something else.

Actually please don't answer.... I don't care. Have a good day and stay safe and healthy.

.

Palmer went to an 18 hole format, Strait tee times, no wave, Riley Grove is closed. I think all other Champs are, will be doing this.

So we are getting 18 holes, but they want everyone to start on the same front nine so they don't show the other open nine because they don't want us to select it. That's make sense, wish they had included a notation.

Truman was awful on Friday-lack of watering was obvious.
