We knew it would be wet, but I was surprised that the course drained at all. We were lucky, it didn't rain until we were done.

Greens are starting to show the effects of too much water.

Overall, we can't blame them for the condition of the course, they are doing the best they can. If it stops raining for a while, maybe then we can fairly judge the course conditions.

Because of the weather, there were few golfers, and we zipped through the round.

Course is okay at best. Greens rolled alright but no slope or challenging reads and no fixed divots. Fairways pretty burnt out, dry and have fat divots. Rough is long and hard to the find ball when it is lying in the rough. Staff is awful, ranger never left us alone, kept hassling us and the starter was insanely strict.

This course has been on my radar for awhile. Glad I finally played it. It was cart path only today because it rained a lot the day before but the course was in pretty good shape. The greens could have benefited from a good rolling and the rough was a little deep but that was understandable and didn’t lessen the enjoyment of this round. I had previewed the layout and pictures ahead of time. Nothing jumped out at me so I wasn’t expecting much. It turned out much nicer than I hoped for. There’s a good bit of water and enough trees to challenge me. Some short par 4s but a good mix of everything. It plays shorter than the 6040 from the whites. The wind was a big factor on this day. Hope to get back there on a calmer day to try to score even better.

Gamblers is a great value for a challenging course. Like many other locations, the rains have taken a toll on the course, but the grounds crew have done a great job to keep the course playable. It's now especially up to us, golfers, to follow the course rules of the day, replace divots and fix ball marks.

I was very happy when I was able to go an entire hole without having to duck for cover. Instead of staff doing their best to keep the players safe , on multiple occasions my group was forced by the starter to hit up on the group in front of us just to have to wait for our next hit. First course I’ve ever played that I’m 100% certain I will not be back to.

Hi dplane 10, I just wanted to apologize for your experience here on Memorial Day. I have never heard that the place was dangerous. I really hope that you heard "fore" yelled on every occasion. I hope that the ranger spoke to you respectfully. I had asked them to help with the pace of play that day in order to make for a nice round for everyone. If you would like to discuss further, please e-mail me at John@Gamblerridge.com.

course was fine. there were no water buckets to be found on any of the holes. not good on an 85 degree day. found out after the round that they were giving out free bottled water in the pro shop. would have been nice if something was said when you paid. nothing like a pounding headache on a hot day

The course was very enjoyable to play and is not to difficult.Good play will be rewarded with a good score. The only complaint was the height of the rough. At times it was difficult to get out of it and even locating the ball sometimes presented a problem.

OK course; a good combination of short and long par fours.

The greens were very slow and needed to be rolled. The rough was long enough that finding your ball was often difficult. The pace of play was terrible, almost 5 hours midweek.. Waited almost every shot every hole. I have nothing against bad golfers, but why can't they play bad golf faster. Not likely that I will play here again.
