Pope Golf Ruins Asheville Municipal Golf Course
Pope golf took over the management of the beautiful Donald Ross Design historic course, Asheville Municipal a few years ago. Condition has been up and down. The course actually looked pretty nice this spring. However, currently it is a disaster and a shame to behold. Donald Ross would be rolling over in his grave. Not only is the course covered in crab grass, (where grass actually grows) but they are shrinking the greens. You will notice in a few of the included photos that the Asheville Municipal Golf course greens are covered in diseased grass, pit holes, and sand. Additionally, they are shrinking the greens from the outside in. Where the edges are horrible, they are planting grass or sod which encroaches on the size of the formerly beautiful large greens that were a distinctive feature of this Donald Ross Design Course. Come back often. More photos to come over the next few days.
