Great weather at a great course, nothing is better for a Saturday.

The starter was a great guy that clearly explained the course layout and conditions.

The tee boxes showed signs of seasonal wear but were fine. Fairways were in really good shape. The greens were awesome. Reading the greens was another things. Again, this is a great course to challenge most average to above average players.

Always a great course. Signed up as a single and the starter paired me up with an earlier threesome. Great group and we played in just about 4 hours with a 7am or so start. Will play again for sure

Course was in solid shape, no complaints. Standard spring time maintenance on some tee boxes. Looking forward to nice weather and the rough regrowing. Always enjoy this course. Even in Wilmington, it's the easiest course for me to get to coming from Center City Philadelphia.

Started by being 36 def with winds gusting to over 25.

I booked through GN for 7am. All good got there 15 minutes early. The Pro Shop attendant told me his first tee time booked was 7:30am. Seems they had no idea GN booked an earlier time than 7:30. Luckily the guy cut us a break and put us into his earliest opening which was 7:06am.

As for the remainder of the day, 25+ mph winds, cart path only and only getting to 43 degrees before we ended the round. I put down average for amenities because due to windy and cold conditions, they only booked 20 players. That being the case, management decided to keep the kitchen closed for the day. I

I have played this course many times over the past 50 years, and since they redid the course several years ago, it has been a joy to play. They are doing a great job of maintaining the course, unlike a lot of public courses. The greens were running fast and true, although there were a lot of ball marks on the greens. Well worth playing!

With all the rain Friday afternoon and Saturday morning the course was in great shape and drained well.

One down side was paid $60.00 for the round but had to play holes 1-9 twice. Started on hole 1 went to the 10th tee after the 9th to find a foursome and two twosomes waiting to tee off. Would have turned into a 6 hour round. Not sure why they started sending groups off on the 10th when you have groups coming off the 9th

Course is beautiful! Started groups on hole 10? Why? Thunderstorm came through which caused a delay. After about 30 min the skies cleared to finish what holes I could get in. The front is a great lay out. Hole 3 and 5!
