keep the parking lot and clubhouse area tidy and thats good enough for me.  My home course has daffodils that grow in the spring but thats really it.  They freshen up the mulch every year and keep it looking "maintained" but its really maintenance free other than mowing the clubhouse grass. As far as a clubhouse goes..it doesn't have to be fancy, either.  A good selection of hot and cold snacks, well stocked drink coolers...we're good to go!

I couldn't care less about landscaping in the parking lot.   Neat and clean is sufficient.  My wife would notice such things but I look solely at the course itself.

I think everyone's top priority is going to be course conditions. However, depending on the layout of your property, a nice parking lot/clubhouse could be very important.

Is your parking lot/clubhouse visible from any roads with frequent traffic? If so, then I would say it is very important for that area to be well maintained as people driving by are going to judge your course based on your presentation of it from the road. If they see a gravel parking lot with weeds growing in it and dead shrubbery, they likely aren't going to move their Saturday morning foursome from the competitor's course to yours. On the other hand, if they see a well-kept lot that seems inviting, they may decide to give your course a shot.

Of course, I'm speaking mostly of first-time golfers at your course. Once they have been there, I think they will remember the course layout and conditions more than what the parking lot looked like. However, getting them there for the first time is half the battle.

    • I have a 15 week puppy and was playing tug-a-war with a rope dog toy, he lunged and chomped for a new grip and caught my finger.  He still has those sharp pointy little puppy teeth.  The cut is a pretty sensitive spot as far as holding a golf club, I don't want to reopen it.  Too small for stitches I would think... I imagine an professional athlete (basketball, golf, football) would get it stitched and play on. Here's a pic from yesterday morning (we hit 80 degrees later in the day, San Diego coastal).
