Default Fenney Putt n Play - Deplorable Conditions

Fenney Putt n Play is in deplorable condition. The cups have not been moved in a very long time...the edges are broken down and many cups have dead grass around the edge. The "fairway" has not been cut or rolled for a long time...very bumpy, lots of weed growing in it, and dead spots. What was once fun to play is now a crap shoot. From only a few feet away I putt my ball, it heads straight for the cup, and a few inches from the cup it hits a bump or clump of wild grass, and turns left or right. We had fun, yes, but only because we decided to not care about the game and enjoy the day.

Most of my putts seem to turn left or right just before the cup no matter what course I play

Yep. Why is the first reaction of so many to get on TOTV and type up a complaint, rather than making a phone call (which may actually result in a fix).

I stopped playing the Execs for that reason. Problem is the Champs aren't much better. The winter kills the grass and barring a complete reseeding ($$$$) and shutting down the course, what are you going to do? Suck it up I guess. You could go to a course that caters to tourists and pay $150

Because the Fenney Putt & Play is still owned by the developer....good luck complaining to them!

Of course, we own (and maintain) all of the land surrounding it.

How about this.

Try something, then complain only if you get no results. Much better than complain rather than trying.

It seems the cups have a small mound around them , I guess the ground is not flattened after. Cutting new holes.

You are greatly exaggerating. We just played the course and it was fine. Very smooth, no weeds.

You guys just like to gripe about anyone posting information. FYI...the reason I posted was information for those who may want to go there. Good grief, I'm not stupid, I know to call golf administration if I want something to change...it's smart ass remarks like this that discourage others from posting information.
