Most of them I just stating the obvious or repeating what someone else has said. Ever been at a meeting where there's always one or two people that try and sound intelligent, but when they open their mouth ......

Really? Maybe the course workers are staying home because we’re in the midst of a pandemic?

not optimal conditions, yes, however on the flip side....you're getting out, you're having fun chasing a little white ball around a cow pasture that's sprinkled with sandboxes...and most likely you're getting a little more 'bounce' on your drive

I've noticed many of the retention ponds are really quite low

perhaps the 'save the turtle' folks have complained and there's now a limit on how much water can be taken from those ponds daily

hey, it could happen (look what the 'spotted owl' and the 'three toed green spotted newt' people were able to do)

Played Bonifay FW/P and P/D and BG T/S this week and on all 3 rotations, the conditions were really good; getting an incredible amount of roll on the fairways now.

But it goes back to what I’ve said before, if you’re game sucks, everything is going to get blamed expect the real issue - your swing.

That's an option and up to the workers, with no repercussions.

If there is no rain,which there has not been, then how can you water the grass. As Pink Floyd said "How can you have your pudding if you don't eat your meat. Stand still laddie." Suck it up like the rest of us and quit your complaining. All the rain you want in June,July and August. Then you will be complaining you can't play then. These are trying times for all not just you. There are people dying and you're worried about a dam golf course. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's terrible, these courses are not up to what I expect. The courses should have at least nice greens. Oh well can't get anything done. The people just don't care about golfers now
They are more worried about spreading a deadly virus and blaming one another. They should have the attitude we do.

You can also thank the inconsiderate and lazy golfers who drive their carts right up to, and sometimes over, the greens even though they do not have a handicapped placard.

Havana should be closed. Do not put on your play list. All dirt, a disgrace for the $47.00 charge. Does anyone know what they are doing?

These condition complaints are right on time. Like the Buzzards in Hinkley, or the swallows of San Juan Capistrano. They show up same time, same place, year after year. It was eerily quiet for a long time. Stay safe everyone.

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.
the courses are running straight tee times, 18 holes, you only see one course that is the only starting hole.
