Default Pitch and putt

Who ever is in charge of overseeing the ground conditions and how the lawn is maintained and cut should take a look and possibly speak to the people cutting the lawn. Played there yesterday and really is sad to see how poor the situation is.

They should just replace all the grass with artificial turf and properly rename it mini golf.

I have played the course probably a half dozen times and have found it to be in excellent condition...... I do know that the greens were recently punched so that is perhaps the OP is complaining..... ???

Default It was pitch and putt

And I played it about the time of the OP's message and it was in pretty tough shape. However, I have a feeling it had just been recently maintained and not mowed property (lots of irregularities), but over the last couple of times it seems to have grown itself back into decent shape.

As a new golfer, I really enjoy the Marshview Pitch and Put. It is not mini golf and it does a disservice to those who like the course to talk about it derisively. If your golf skills have progressed beyond this course, there are, of course, many more options for you here in The Villages. I, for, one, will keep playing Marshview until I feel confident enough to get out on another course. All of you experienced golfers should be thankful that there is somewhere for people to learn that keeps them out of your way!

Default MatshView Pitch and Putt

Working there two mornings a week, it is my opinion that the course is given excellent care. Every comment I receive is very positive.

Whoa, skippy. Quit profiling all experienced golfers and think that none of us like to play Marshview. Mrs. KC and I (both low handicaps) like to occasionally play there and have lunch at one of the food trucks.

Our chip and putt grounds are not in bad shape, but they removed the large shade tree over the beaches. Some of us need a beach between the holes ,while we wait for some time slow or newer players.

Played there again this week and yes the grounds were in much better shape.
So nice to see that action is taken to maintain the quality of what the concept of The Villages is.
The place is beautiful And again thanks

I’m not sure why I got tagged with “Skippy” - that’s an odd reaction- but I do appreciate you opening my eyes to why a more experienced golfer would play Marshview. Just be patient when you get matched with a newbie!
