This course is in reasonably good shape - the fairways and the greens were in pretty good shape. And the course layout is reasonably challenging. The reason for the relatively low overall rating is that on a day where temperatures approached 90 there was no water to be had anywhere on the course. This is just not ok and they need to quickly remedy it.

The layout on this course is great if you like a good challenge doesn’t have the distance of other courses but has tight fairways to make up for it,

Conditions are ok

Greens a pretty good this year,

Fairways are ok in places

Rough can very depending where you are from thick to non existent,

Sand traps are lower quality

Overall this is a fun course to play

And since Eisenhower is closed this year I will be here allot

This course has a decent layout and some of the holes were in reasonably good shape. However, on several holes - particularly the front nine - there was goose poop on the fairways and even on several of the greens. Management simply needs to do a better job about cleaning things up more regularly than they apparently do.

Course was wet due to recent weather conditions, but greens were firm and fast. Front nine layout design is much different from the back. Both are good, but back is more challenging.

Walden is a great course from top to bottom. Is very challenging with tight fairways throughout. Greens are in fantastic shape and putt very true. Will definitely be back for more rounds.

Got an awesome deal with the hotbuy during the week. Had to start on the back 9 due to a high school match starting this afternoon. Course was in decent shape, greens still suffering from being aeration, but not a big deal. Loved hole # 11...a par 3 over the water. The course has some challenging holes and is perfect for tuning up your game. I had an overall good experience and would return to this course.

Greens are good. Fairways are dead and done for the year for the most part. Nice course that was hammered by summer climate weirdness (i.e. climate change preview). Price was low with hotdeal so fine.

Played Walden on 9/21 And course was in horrible shape. The fairways looked like the rough and the rough was pretty much unplayable.....some of the greens were in great shape other in bad shape. Tee boxes were mostly dirt. Such a shame because I actually enjoy playing this course . Hope they get it into shape quickly
