"We played that course many times. It was sure value until yesterday. The majority of the greens are in really bad condition. Because of it they gave us a round free witch is fair. I would suggest not to play this course right now. Wait for the habitual course conditions.It's usually a very Nice course."

"This course is typically in descent shape and a nice layout. However,at present the greens are in very bad condition and in my opinion the course shouldn't even be open until they get this current problem fixed. At very least they should be notifying patrons of the problem when they call in & they should be charging them a reduced rate. I fully realize what a financial burden this might cause but it is totally unfair to pass that burden on to unsuspecting golfers."

"This is normally a nice course BUT until the greens are back in shape, it is a bit discouraging. The majority of greens are like putting on cardboard. We understand that the weather has been an issue but that should be told or the customer before the tee time is made."

"I like the layout of the course and the staff is friendly but that's about the only good thing that can be said at this point in time. TOO MUCH RAIN and not enough drainage. Carts on path on some holes and should have had the carts on paths on every hole. The fairways are thin and about 1/3 of the greens have NO grass. They are painted and almost unplayable. I would go anywhere before I go back to Wachesaw because putting is a big part of the game. Sorry that I have to give them a bad review but I would avoid this course until the greens recover."

"Go someplace else for now. Two things, the course doesn't drain well, so 6300 yds from the white tees plays like 6800. The worst about Wachesaw is the greens right now. They are painted and a number have no grass at all. It's a shame but I think either disease or too much rain has ruined the greens for now. I really enjoy the layout but if I were to play again, I would use a 2 putt maximum rule because some are unusable. I do hope they can have a good growing season this spring but I would not go there until then. I was very disappointed because last winter they were okay."

"Very tough finishing holes. Course in great shape, especially considering that they had 24 inches of rain the week before. Could actually ride the fairways on all but one hole. Staff was very friendly and a great outdoor bar and grill at the clubhouse. Definitely will be back next year."

"An absolutely beautiful course with an outstanding staff. Fairways are in excellent condition and greens are like velvet. A challenging yet very rewarding course that everyone should play at least once if not multiple times. The grill is excellent for a 19th hole as well. Very good fare with great drink prices! I give it two thumbs up and five stars!"

"Despite the greens being recently aerated, and bit sandy, I had a nice time here. The course is challenging, with a nice mix of holes. The wind was up, which made club selection more difficult than perceived - you definitely had to think.#17 is a funky par 5 that will infuriate some on the first play, but if you play it again, shows off its charm.#3 is a gimmicky par 5. Your ideal second shot should be just in front of the 150 yd marker, but the trouble is, the fairway slopes down, turns into dirt, and runs into a marshy area. Distance control is key.#7 is a long, strong par 5. you need three good shots to reach the green.Would like to come back when the greens are a little further away from aeration. Fun course."
