Brickyard Bayou in Gulfport MS has this problem. Its a bootleg course[no city support, but they're OK with it being there] in an old neighborhood bought out by the feds due to hurricane flooding. It gets mowed by the city, but only every month or so, nowhere near enough to deal with the berserk growth of grasses there. So my buds who put the course in get about 7-14 days of play before it becomes a disc hunt in the fairways.
The city did allow us to prune the trees, azaleas and other residential shrubbery still present so as to make what will eventually be a very beautiful, manicured course.
My friends did improve the situation somewhat by befriending the mower operators, giving them some discs, inviting them to play, a cold drink, etc. Now when the mowers arrive they often ask my buddies what they want cut and where.
Fortunately, when I'm visiting in the winter, the growth is off and I get a lot of rounds in.
