The creek is almost full but there is minimal ponding in the fairways.  The fairways next to the creek have not been mowed, however, so its a bit like a jungle out there.  The tee pads are pretty sloppy. 

We skipped holes 2-5, 11, and 16 at handicaps last night.

There were also a bunch of holes where you really had to think about your footing.  I had a few mudslides off the tee.

Thanks for the updates.

As of last night a lot of the tee pads were in pretty bad shape. Hole 11's fairway was swampy for the first couple hundred feet or so. The fall off left on hole 16 was very muddy. This course definitely needs a lot more time to dry out.

How about a reconfiguration and multiple pin positions; that can change the flow to help the erosion problem?  I know this course is historic, but how long are we going to avoid the real problem?  Highland has the same issue…traffic with elevation.  Channahon and Trinity have been evolving, hopefully, we can move to more pin placements in the future.  Look at the surrounding states.  How many championship caliber courses do they have compared to ours?  There tends to be a "deuce or die" mentality here.  We have plenty of courses to cater to the amateurs, how about changing a few to challenge the rest of us.  Some can be changed to satisfy both.
