So where is this course? Are they in a region that's in the middle of a drought? Are they they only course that's in a decent radius? What's the cost here vs. other courses in the area? Let's not

Some of the greens transition to the fringe, and fairway.

On other sides of the same green, there is a 1 " tall bumper.

Then, the fringe is 2 -3" tall.

On the same green, you have bald spots right next to the green.

Then a few feet to the right or left, you have grass that is 3 inches deep, amd the ball sinks.

You have to be standing over your ball to see it.

 

These are just a few quick pics I took today.

I’ve played some courses that have similar conditions but not quite that bad overall. Is that the only option near you? If it is a financial decision just go out and enjoy the game and play “winter” rules to get in some better spots.

You would have to pay me 😂 I don’t see a spot on that course that wouldn’t potentially ruin a club lol. I don’t get them for free I don’t want to replace them

Let's not be so quick to diminish courses that are still operating and people can learn to play the game on. It's easy for us in this region that's littered with decent courses, but it's not so easy for a lot of other golfers and potential golfers.

wow! that legit looks like it’s an abandoned course. 

i agree with @Lacassem - i’d have to be paid to play a round there. either that or loaned some clubs. 

although i bet if i bounced a drive off one of those hard pan fairway patches i could get it out to 400yds...

Right now several places have closed in the last 2 years.

We have another course that is about to re-open.

This course is about $35-40 for 18 with a cart.

No dress code, size limit on groups, etc.

The closest nice course is 35 minutes away.

We can walk this for $10 ( for me) and my Son okays2 free because of high school team.

We always play winter rules ( ground under repair).

When the good course re-opens, we will join.

This is mostly treated as a (walking driving range).

 

It is a challenge, but not from the intentional layout either.

The owner isn't a golfer. No money is put back into course at all.

 

This is pretty much a beginner course, or for people that don't take it too serious.

The school and other seroius golfers treat it as practice only.

 

The kids starting out and retired men that can't get around are there often.

No marshal at all.

On a Sunday afternoon, you might see a group of 10 people, sharing 3 sets of clubs. Only the 3 owners of the clubs have played before.

They won't let you play thru.

1st of year, we'll join the other course thats opening back up.

Many thanks for giving us some background info. So you're looking at a region that is suffering from a lack of courses (don't know where you are or what the economics of the situation is as far as how many golfers there are to support X number of courses), over an hour drive time round trip to get to a "nice" course, it's apparently a very relaxed atmosphere that would be welcoming to new golfers, and you can walk it for $10.

I would walk this course for $10 rather than buy a large bucket at the range 10 times out of 10. $35 with a cart? I'd bring my 14yo there every weekend so we both could work on our games in a relaxed environment and learn to play shots from different areas. It's not going to count against my handicap since it's a practice round, but let's be realistic about geography and conditions before we poke fun at places like this.

Paying me is just joshing around. Me personally I wouldn’t play in my current game. Years ago yes, now that I am fully enveloped in the game and purchasing equipment that I would not want potentially compromise.

a dog track is a dog track, several courses around here I just can’t play and they still ask for a decent penny to play

Years ago would have been on this course a lot for that price.

It's not really relaxed.

Crowded, and unorganized.

You might spend 5-1\2 hours to play 18 holes, on a course that is less than 6000 yards.

 It's  fun to a point, but yiu have to realize when it hurts your scores.

There are a lot of people that won't putt.

After they hit the green, they pickup and take a 2 putt.

Greens always play as if aerated.

We usually run down late evening.

People are leaving because they don't want to be out in a cart after dark.

We can walk a quick 9, and after  the clubhouse closes, we can still get out on our own.

Usually walking 9 takes about 1 hr 15 mins.

Perfect timing. This would also be somewhere I would bring my son. There used to be a really nice par 3 in town years ago where I learned but that’s gone. This would definitely be a spot I would do 9 with him and buy a set on eBay for it
