Overall it was in pretty decent shape except that the greens are horrendous.

So as a golf newbie, my question is what's worse if in bad conditions--greens, tees, fairways...? If you had to choose, what part of the golf course would you want to be in the best condition?

For me...

Greens need to be good and are highest priority
Fairways are next
Tees are least important to me as I can use a tee

Yeah, Belmont is like putting on cobblestones. They're re-doing the 2nd green. Hope it's the start of doing all of them. They look compacted, even after aeration.
