Youll see alot more golfers by going to good 18 hole courses like Grandview, Ewing, Walnut. Southwoods is one of our worst courses IMO

When its taken care of, there are some good holes I will admit. However, it hasnt been for a few years. The tall grass on hole one in the middle of the fairway is a joke. They said they are trying to get prairie grass to grow, to me it seems like they just dont want to mow, and then they want to ask us to take care of it...

If you are trying to birdie hole 1 (which i assume you would be trying to every time) you dont need to worry about the prarie grass.

Ok...Yeah I can get there for the 2. What about the 80% of other people who play there? Most of them are high schoolers who cant throw that far. Do you know how many discs get lost on that hole alone? Ive found upwards of 10 discs out of there just looking for mine. I dont like being punished for having a shot land in the middle of the fairway

How many times did you have to bust out the catchers mitt to handle the beating I threw on you in BW's again this year?
