Playing Shattuck next Sunday

anyone play red tail lately? Would love to get a round in there before the year is over if conditions allow
A few friends said it was in rough shape and they were pissed for the price paid.

I've heard the same thing but that was earlier in the season. I'm surprised, as we played Shaker Hill and it was in decent shape. Usually things are the other way around. That's disappointing as it's always one of my favorite tracks.

Drought was tough on a lot of places this year plus more traffic

Yes - the home course lost an irrigation pump at the same time we had that really hot stretch. Did a number on the fairways, but they are on their way back. They did a fantastic job on the greens though.

Hate when courses try and use the weather as an excuse... all it takes is money, plenty of green courses out there.

Better to keep the greens with some color and life though than the fairways. Who doesn’t like a little NE Open Championship conditions?

Greens and tees have been mint. We were like 7" short of normal rain, so it is what it is. Courses next to moving water or large lakes have been better. The something like 2x the normal rounds also added some wear and tear.

Lots of fun to just hit low irons off the tee and have them run forever though.

That’s why I put a UT in the bag

I was impressed with Trull Brook... some of the greens are almost mini golf-esque with their slope and pin placements.

What I didn't like, the 5.5 hour round of golf.

The current conditions with the 2" or so of rain we got this weekend are probably more your speed...

Playing Shattuck on Sunday.

I'm excited. My golf balls, not so much.

We need to recreate the 2 man scramble magic we had there a few years back.

I'm a new member and I'm in Amherst, MA. Would love to meet up and play before the season ends! Hoping it doesn't till December this year.

Welcome! Great group of guys here. When it does end up north a few of us hit the cape in the “offseason”
