Barrington Hall Golf Course
Very interesting course, greens need work.
This is a very interesting course, very hilly, some challenging holes. The fairways are not growing in yet, probably normal for March, but the greens are bumpy and slow, and do not run true. It could be a great course if/when the grass grows in.

I played a round on the day after Thanksgiving and had to wait almost an hour to receive a cart and my tee time was just a little over an hour away. Then I was told that the range was closed. This really sucked as I like to warm up before play. I was thinking that construction or something was going on and it was closed due to the clubhouse not having any balls available as they were not picked from the range. So I had to pick my own balls off the range if I wanted to warm up and I did just that. Then while playing, I lost OVER 12 Titileist NXT's........not in the woods or water, but in the FREAKIN fairways. There were about 19 million leaves in the fairways.. Most depressing was that they were on the greens like that as well. I really don't see myself playing another round there until someone comes in to help out this course. It was not that bad when I played it during the summer.

Course is on the up and up
Played here earlier in the year and the course was in pretty bad shape. Played again in the fall and could see a drastic change. Better greens, thicker fairways, and even the clubhouse was looking much better. Props to the owner and staff for the hard work.
Course can really be a challenge if you don't hit the ball straight. On one side you usually have houses and on the other side you have thick woods. Currently they have the greens sanded and seeded which make approach shots stick pretty hard, but made the putting unpredictable. Plus they are keeping the greens watered pretty hard so it can be muddy in spots so bring your old shoes. :-)
Course should be in really good shape this spring if they keep up the work and I look forward to playing it then.
