    they have not been taking care of the course the past two years and they finally shut it Down. It is lined by homes, villas and timbers. There is a meeting Wednesday at 3:30 in Jolleys about the course with the assistant manager. The person in charge of the pro shop left about a month ago. The oaks course isn't in the best of shape.

    Very worrisome, they haven't opened one of the ski lifts for past two years either

    The pines is open now, but the entire course is in very bad condition. I am posting again because I see ads on here for Christmas Mountain advertising it having a beautiful 27 hole golf course. It does not. It is an embarrassment.

    Sounds like my kind of golf course. As a golfer, I'm an embarassment!

    Then you wouldn’t mind that they repaired the greens that were ruined by hydrolic acid by placing sod right on top of the ruined parts rather than level with the rest of the green.

    Sounds a little bumpy! Even I would have noticed that. But, I wouldn't have made the putt anyway!

    What's hydrolic acid? What's the normal use of the stuff?

    Are you saying you played there and didn’t notice.
    Ruined grass with mower leaks last year, somehow used to rectify situation, then this year used the sod.
    If you go to Facebook and type in Christmas Mountain Village you can read what a golfer posted a couple of weeks ago. They are losing the tournaments play, they are losing members. If bluegreen is not committed to the course, it will be too late to bring it back.

    Everyone says the mowers leaked hydrolic acid. Mower wide stripes across three greens, back and forth. That was last year. This year they put sod on top of the dead grass. No sand left in a lot of traps, grass and weeds growing out of them. Tees are browned out, dandelions growing on them.
