Warminster's Five Ponds Golf Course
Worst greens I have ever played on.. every green but one suffered major damage from the winter.. fairways were also horrible. Layout is good but stay away until they are able to repair the course.

Greens are in terrible shape.
Nice layout for the course and challenging.
The distances makers are way off and deceiving. Greens are in terrible condition when I played.

Recovering from a harsh winter
Course is a nice track although there are holes that go back and forth that make it a bit of a shooting gallery Overall conditions were mediocre as the course is recovering from a harsh winter with a lot of winter kill on fairways and greens. This is more a cosmetic than playability issue. The greens look horrible but they putt ok. Some of the greens were a little bumpy. One of the best fetaures of this course is the greens so hopefully they will come around. The eighth green was in very good shape and is indicatve of what the course is usually like. Pace of play on a Tuesday afternoon was 4 1/2 which was a bit slow for our group of accomplished golfers who play fast. We waited on every shot and never saw a ranger. Course has a good range and practice facility. One of the better practice putting greens around.

Great Course if you want to wait alot.
The course is challenging and is always in great condition. However every time I played here was plagued with waiting. The course does not manage its tee times well, and anyone I have ever taken here or recommended to go in the past has had the same issue. This probably will not get better since the course has been selling groupons by the 1,000 with expirations in the near future. I understand courses are hurting, but this course does not balance tee times well, and likely wont any time soon with the offers it has sold.

This course is the best public course I have ever played.
I have played 5 ponds many times.
I had a steady tee time there for years.
It is a great course !
Play there and you will agree.

Good conditions especially for winter golf
Sure Winter was still a few days away but you wouldn't know it judging from the course conditions at five ponds. Pretty much all of the tee boxes were moved forward so play was a little more forgiving but the fairways were well manicured and the greens were soft and predictable. Overall a great day of golf when you wouldn't really expect it.

Course is not but the Tees were moved up too much for winter. All Tees were playing at the Ladies Tees.
