I played Sweetgum this morning. The tee boxes were fine. There was one green that has some bare spots (number 8) but I cannot complain about the overall conditions.

It Appears we have different opinions about the playing shape of golf courses. I’ve seen this movie before on TOTV.

These posts sound like a restaurant review. You don't know who to believe.

Unfortunately, too many are quick to believe the negative comments.

I would like to add a general comment. It is obvious more course are in better shape than they were a few short months ago.

It is obvious there is work going on to make most better.

Last week the courses we played had considerable numbers of obvious brown spots.....weed were being killed.

Greens are in much better shape. And there is even evidence of grass at differing cut levels.

So to me it appears the new management of course maintenance is in fact making a difference....signs of progress all around....takes time.....the intentions of continuous improvement seem apparent for now.

Now if we could get the entitled and the indifferent to sand their divots, fix their ball marks, rake the bunkers and play ready golf.....there would be even more improvement.....

Just remember this post in the future when the snowbirds destroy everything. Your previous posts about the courses were pretty critical and pretty much the exact the opposite of what you are saying now.

Please rake the bunkers. Fix a ball mark. Everyone benefits.

Judging by the reports from all year rounders during the 'quiet season' the snowbird destruction of courses is just a continuation of the norm.
Wife and I have played these courses for 20+ years, and we have played with all and sundry, and snowbirds believe me, are no worse than 'all year rounders' regarding lack of etiquette.
If you want to discuss pressure of numbers of players on course conditions, feel free, but to make a claim that snowbirds destroy courses is just your prejudice and pure BS!
