What was once forecast as the showcase golf course of Modesto has become an eyesore and a city embarrassment. What has happened to Creekside? Vandalism and lack of proper maintenance has -- like the abundant overgrown weed fields all over the course -- justified the reason why golfers have sought elsewhere to play. I was so embarrassed when I brought a fellow golfer to Modesto to play a round a few weeks ago. Shame on the city maintenance crews! Simply and utterly horrible and deplorable conditions. How sad.
