Default Sweetgum Greens Not In Good Shape......

Played Sweetgum yesterday and the greens are looking very bad. ? fungus? Lots of bald patches. They have a temporary green on one hole. Will we see it closing for the summer?

awful is not the word. The course is an embarrassment to The Villages and should be closed until fixed.

Their greens have always been hard to maintain.

We have been playing the courses in the Fenney area and we think the greens are very good.

When the showbirds leave, we will start playing more closer to where we live.

It is too bad about Sweetgum because we love that course. Especially #6 when the grass is high and all you can see from the tee is the flag waving in the breeze.

I heard back from Eric, he was non comittal on the fix. He blamed the issues on environmental problems and contractor problems.

We played there yesterday and the greens are probably the worst in The Villages. The course should be closed immediately but that probably won’t happen. There is no excuse for letting them get to this condition. Same thing has happened a couple of other years as well. You would think they would learn from their mistakes.

I got an email today from district offices saying Sweetgum is closed until further notice.
