Angry Golfing at Nancy Lopez Erinn Glenn

I was golfing yesterday with 5 other friends at Lopez (Torri Pines and Erinn Glenn) and after finishing Torri Pines we went to Erinn Glenn. After hitting our tee shots we looked at the green? from the fairway. It was yellow. Looked like all the grass had died. We finished the hole and went to the 2nd, a par three. You could see from the tee box it was yellow. One of the group called the clubhouse and asked what was up. He was told they are shutting down Erinn Glenn in a week or so and the sprayed to kill the grass before that. Of course the orange greens hadn't been cut, maintained. Four of the six went back to get a raincheck. I live in Hemingway and didn't drive my cart 12 miles just to go back home.
I voiced my complaint to someone in charge of the course in the clubhouse. I think it should have been explained to all of us what was going on and what to expect before we paid. No mention of yellow dead grass. The Erinn Glenn starter said nothing when we showed up to play. No offer to reduce the price. Won't be going back to play that course.

Yellow grass is not dead, brown grass is dead.

Just think of all the people who died yesterday from the Corona virus. They would love to be putting on yellow greens today.

Actually yellow grass is dead...or at least dying. It's lost it's chlorophyll. I asked last week about Erin and was told the same thing...they sprayed it with roundup in advance of closing on April 1.

Glad you were told what to expect. Neither the people in the clubhouse or the starter at Erinn Glenn say anything.

If you want to play a fantastic golf course, go play Baseline in Belleview. You can play 9 holes for $17. Including cart. This course is better then any in the Villages Absolutely emaculate.

They closed Ashley and replaced the greens two summers ago and did the same with Tori last summer. Same great greens as Tierra Del Sol. I believe Erin will be closed for renovations and new greens this summer. Lopez is a fun and enjoyable course. Agree that you should have been informed about the conditions at Erin, but you wouldn’t be doing yourself a favor by boycotting Lopez in the future.
