Nonesuch River is usually a busy course. You can see many holes from the clubhouse area and I have noticed you can always see an assorted of golfers out on those hole. Sometimes you see a pocket of seniors playing the forward tees and then some good players hitting from the tips. There may be a cluster of women followed by some tourists slashing away. All types of groups find their way to Nonesuch. The course tends to be in good shape, but there are a few chronic wet spots. There are holes that seem to be on top of each other like 7 through 9 and 11 and 17, where yelling 'fore' is commonplace. There are some good holes out there along with some funky target holes. The 4th is a really good, long par 3 and the 14th is a fine example of a good dogleg. The par 5, 3rd hole where you have to lay up off the tee to avoid the nebulous rough/hazard area and the 11th with its awkwardly designed hazard and fairway, are hard to embrace. NRGC would benefit from having a real starter and ranger. Groups randomly go to the first tee somewhat based on tee times and may or may not pair up. At 11:50 our group went to the tee for our 11:54 tee time behind the group that had just teed off. A group ran to the tee from the parking lot announcing they were the 11:45 tee time. To avoid a confrontation and with no staff members in sight, we let them go. On the course the eclectic blend of golfers can create slow play issues. An effective ranger would help with that. Some groups take long breaks for lunch at the turn and a back up on the 10th is not uncommon. The members that get out early are fine, but by mid-day its catch as catch can. With a little polish this popular course could advance to the next level. But if they are busy as they need to be for most of the summer, then they may not wish to take that step. I would advise you to come to NRGC with plenty of patience and understanding, and maybe a few extra balls.
