    You'd think that, when a course has 3 mines, they could control the flow (and pace of play) quite efficiently by monitoring how many players they send out on each nine. These guys don't seem to have the knack for that.

    I was sent out as a single on the Red 9, and zipped through 9 holes in about 75 minutes. I'd been told to go to the Blue 9 next, but there were 3 groups on the first hole. I asked if I could play the White 9 instead but......here's the good part...
    was not permitted to do so because he was keeping that tee open for players coming off the Blue 9. To add insult to injury, while I was waiting for my next hole to clear, the single who was 2 holes behind me finished #9, took a look at the holdup on the Blue 9, and promptly went over to play the White 9. Is anyone in charge here?

    The condition of this course is actually pretty good, but doesn't appear to be well managed.
    Right now I'm not sure if I'd ever go back here. There are positives, but negatives as well.
