It's the greens. They are nearly grassless with rolled black sand. I understand that Amelia has been closed because of the greens were damaged by an error in chemical application. Maybe the same mistake was made on Virginia and Caroline.

The greens are in really bad shape and need a lot of work.

I just had lunch at Mallory and an employee just told me that instead of applying fertilizer to the greens they applied weed killer!

That’s why Mallory is closed.

OUCH!

Other Championship courses (other then Cane Garden) don't seem to have the green problems Malory (and Cane) have. Bonifay, Tierra, Lopez, Belle Glade, Glenview all in good to very good condition. Too bad the maintenance teams don't talk.

Played a week or so ago, greens were horrible. They need to fix them. Maybe that is why they are closing it

I talked to the pro shop at Havana yesterday. They said Mallory greens have a mold on them. The whole course is closed.

Understand they used the wrong fertilizer on the greens!

Yes. They have lost 18 greens due to the application of the wrong chemical. If you ask the people actually doing the application they will quickly tell you they have no idea what they are applying. They take the bag or liquid they are told to use and spread it accordingly.

Bay Kid said that it's hard to get good help, and I agree.
That would be a good reason for closing Mallory.

My spouse heard that from someone who works there.

Sometimes errors in spraying on golf courses is caused by sabotage by a disgruntled employee. What's in the tank is not what's in the tank. I've seen this happen more than once.
