I have not played it but have driven past it a few times. The holes I see looked pretty good (for Grand Ridge).

Greens are supposed to be in good condition, fairways are same as they always were. They have been doing a lot of tree removal and work trying to get the fairways better.

re: Grand Ridge, Luling
I played yesterday. They are putting in serious work to the course. They’ve completed most of a legit drainage project and are now filling in low spots in the fairways with sand to allow for the new drainage. Also cutting down a bunch of trees to allow for grass to start growing. Overall the greens look great, there are a few that are works in progress. Also resodding and growing out tee boxes that will benefit from trees being removed.

Understand it’s still a work in progress but arguably for the first time in the courses history they’ve got a legitimate greens keeper and he knows what he’s doing. Leadership change over there has done a fantastic job turning the place around.

I grew up playing this course as my folks used to live on it. It’s where I learned to play golf so it will always have a special place in my heart.

So I’m supposed to feel bad for being excited that the course I grew up on is making an investment and coming back with quality?

I used to belong to old Willowdale in the 80’s and 90’s. They let it go to shite but current ownership is moving in the right direction.

You mean the one I never get invited to play in? I’d rather it at Cypress Lakes, better layout and fairways are nice.

Like earlier poster said... fairways were a little torn up because of the maintenance going on but the greens were in excellent shape!

Played it over a year ago. The greens were better. The tee boxes needed work.

If you played it any time in the last 5 years, you wouldn't say that...

It's an improving golf course that is headed in the right direction. With 200+ trees removed, it's not as tight and more grass is growing. SUBSTANTIAL work has been done to drain the course better. The greens are in great shape, pre-katrina nice.
