4/19/2008Once again I ventured to the South course of the Bowling CC. I just had to see if conditions had improved over last year. Fortunately they had improved, half the bunkers now have sand! It is hard to imagine that two courses joined by a maintenance trail, sharing the same grounds crew could be so different in conditioning. I asked the locals in my foursome and was told that “rumor” had it that the course was to be sold for development so the owners treated it differently. That could be the case or just local gossip, but there is not denying the disparate conditions. Play the North course and skip the South is my recommendation. Ayce
5/5/2007Last summer I had the pleasure of playing the North course of the semi-private duo, and came away happy with the course. This time the opposite occurred. The South course appears to be the ugly child of the two 18s in that maintenance is not up to the standard of the North course. Bunkers were without sand and marked as ground under repair in early May after a pre-season that was perfect for accomplishing all such repair of courses. I couldn’t name another course with such a mess at this point in the season! The other problem with this course lies in the lies. Not the scorecard ones, but the ones that really matter - the surface. Many center cut drives are rewarded with a stance for the approach that would rival some of the trick shots on “Big Break.” The better North course may lie in a flood plane which could account for its lush fairways. This track is a chlorophyll roller coaster good only for practicing your mountain golf skills before heading to the Homestead. The price is cheap enough for what’s offered and the crowds are small. Ayce
5/3/2000Bowling Green Country Club features two separate 18-hole layouts. I was invited to play in a scramble and we played the South course which is a par 70 of 5587 yards. The course was visually deceptive throughout with plenty of hills, which made the distances look a lot farther than they actually were. The greens and fairways were in pretty good shape although not the pristine type of conditions you find at more upscale courses. The course itself was very forgiving however the terrain of the course made it enough of a challenge to play. All in all, Bowling Green South is a nice track to work on your game and play some hilly conditions. Lefty’s team
