Still in excellent condition. Was soft and we picked up mud on most drives so it played a little longer than usual, greens are very very good as was everything else. I heard the roughs were tough in places!

To my friend 6542 - this was the second time I played Farm since turning 69 and shot my age both times. This course fits my game well.

They require masks for entering the clubhouse.

Can't wait to enjoy your company in a couple weeks. Been hitting the ball well just not scoring. Yesterday pared the first 15 holes with 14 birdies putts. Made 1 birdies sot even bogeyed last hole.

I agree. Driving is not enough. All inside of 100 yds is very important.

Once again @UGP, thank you for reporting!

Farmstead should hire you as their golf ambassador! 😉

Nope.  That would be King's North/Borth.

I like to think I am an ambassador for many MB courses. I happen to play Borth and Farm more often than others. And I like both of them.

Borth is the layout that if I could only play one course every day, that would be it. I love Farm, day in day out probably the best conditioned public course in MB. I also like the Farm because I typically score  very well well there having shot my age 6 or 7 times. At Borth I often get stuck playing back, and it's a very tough course from the golds for a short hitter like myself - but what a great challenge it is. More fun from the whites!

It is important to choose the right tees UGP. At the Golf Channel, one guy said this week that if you can not reach the green in two (for a par 4) with a 7 or 8 or 9 or PW iron, it is because you have not select the good tees for you. I tend to agree with this opinion.

I agree - but you wouldn't believe all the hybrids and three woods I end up hitting into greens. It's the games I end up playing in, my choice. Surf Club is up next and may have to play the tips. Again, my choice to play, no complaints. Usually once a week I get the senior tees which are a lot fun. When Shep comes in we're playing Parkland - it's long from the seniors and I plan on playing those tees. Heck, I'm 69, short, and only look good with a hat in front of my face!
