Perry Lake, Longview
« on: July 10, 2014, 01:02:52 PM »
Hello everyone, I'll post this in "general banter" since there hasn't been activity on the "Longview" thread in 8+ months.  Anyone have a current update on course condition (grass mowing, fields of ivy and oak in the fairways that was there last summer, etc)?  I love the course and want to play it soon, but I don't want to drive all that way if it has not been maintained.  Thanks for any info you may have.

You may get some info inquiring from the Topeka, KS club forum but I doubt it.  Last current post was Sat Jan 18, 2014.

Topeka golfers tend to be more active on facebook:

Also, sometimes DGCR can help for course conditions.  If you have an account, you can update the conditions for the courses yourself.

Unfortunately, it looks like the last update for Longview was myself when I played it last April.

I saw that as well robm.  Unfortunately Longview is just far enough off the beaten path that there is no regular conversation about course conditions to be found on the interwebz.  Very unlucky for us because it is such a great piece of land and such a good course...if it is being taken care of.  Last year I went on a whim (around this time) and when I got there the grass was very high and the ivy/oak was out of control in some fairways.  I posted on Topeka's fb page, hopefully someone has an update cuz I want to spend some time out there real soon!
