Round 8 – Theodore Wirth

Posted Saturday, June 6th, 2009 09:43 pm GMT -5 in Golf

Theodore Wirth Golf Club is changing. Last year was a remodel of the outside of the clubhouse. This year, it was a remodel of the the inside. Throw in some nice service enhancements and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board has a pretty nice product on their hands.

We knew something was up when we drove into the parking lot and an employee pulled up in a cart asking if we wanted our bags driven to the clubhouse. That’s never happened before. Also new were the friendly (and effective) on-course rangers that kept play moving on both nines – without being rude.

The condition of the course has been improving over the years and one of the rangers confirmed that their new superintendent is making good progress. They are suffering from some of the same early season issues most of the courses in the region have now, but overall it was nice. I would like to see them get better sand in the bunkers at some point, though.

In tough times, it’s nice to see courses making an effort to attract golfers.

The weekend walking rate was $32.
