Default Havana Golf Course

Yesterday our group played Havana. It was very sad to see the conditions of the greens and tee boxes. To make matters worse, the greens were not cleared of the heavy dew prior to play starting. We all realize that we are in peak season. However, basic blocking and tackling needs to be maintained.

Hey, they only charge $47 on top of your $1000 priority membership. Why would you expect conditions to be better?

Playing there yesterday. One step above cow pasture. The greens, and I use the term loosely, were terrible. They should be ashamed to charge the high price we paid.

I played there Wednesday, Jan. 27. The greens in particular are dreadful. No grass, they almost look burned. It is like putting on a felt pool table. Someone needs to be fired, and right now.

I played Kilimanjaro to Kenya yesterday, and I've played it at least 50 times before, it's worse I've ever seen. I played Mallory the week before, greens and fairways much nicer. That's probably why my request was approved, golfers are staying away from Havana.

I think that you mean something else because a felt pool table would be a perfect putting surface.

Have to agree with the assessment of poor conditions......played it Wednesday.

Being from Iowa, it's a few steps above a cow pasture.........cow pies are a bitch to hit out of.
But thanks for thinking of me.

A dump....do not play Kenya at all. As bad as it gets. Take Havana off your lists to play; $47 is a joke and a ripoff. It should be closed.

Played Havana today. Compares to a $9 muni where the residents care for it. There is little evidence on the course that a turf management company has any involvement there.

Played Havana today. Comparable to a $9 mini where the residents cut the grass. There is little evidence on the course that a professional turf management is involved in any way.

I am generally happy with the conditions of the Championship courses, but for some reason Havana seems to get more complaints than any other Villages course. What’s up with that?
