Default Evans Prairie

Mrs. KC and I played Evans Prairie Egret/Osprey (I know, I know, not the regular rotation; Killdeer was closed) this morning and the tee boxes, fairways and greens were in really good shape. Spots on the fairways were a little wet due to all the rain we've had, but, all in all, it was in really good shape.

And best of all, we played it in 3:30.

Great to hear how good the conditions were, and really great to hear some positive posts about the conditions on some of the courses. I know all the courses are not always in great condition, but I also know that whenever I can not get out to play on one of the courses I am wishing that I somehow could find a way to.

I should have quoted golf2140.
I agree with your assessment of the constant complainers.

My husband plays the championship courses 3 days a week year round. If he finds a course in not great shape he leaves that course out for a couple of weeks when making a tee time. I think he doesn't complain because he is a very good golfer and scores well.

I think she was referring to the post about the parking lot being empty.
