played here 3 times in last week---its close and mostly good POP. Fairways have remained in overall good shape with just the beginning of some browning on a couple of areas. Rough is very healthy about 2 inches and quickly stops forward progress. Recovery could be challenging depending on how deeply the ball settled.
Bunkers varied as to quality and quantity of sand. Tees are often sloped or crowned and par 3s are getting quite beaten up.
Greens are getting better, notwithstanding the mottled coloring, rolling medium fast and smoothly for the most part.
At this time it appears that the course is initiating some renovations and improvements.
6/19 using costco voucher $40 with a 752 start last tee time in front of mens club and cruised with no one pushing us and no waiting until about 13 when we caught the jr golf campers--let us through 1st on 15 and then on 18--POP 320.
Each time I come back here I am more impressed, the lay out is scenic and feels more remote than it is and has a good variety of holes. Conditions are really good. Fairways are lush with just enough firmness for some roll while providing good cushion. Rough about 2-3 inches giving a nice out line and depending on the lie varying levels of challenge especially around the greens with generally deeper thicker growth. Tees ok level for the most part with the par 3s more chewed up(lack of rotating markers and lack of attention to filling divots)
Greens have fully healed and could not tell which 1/2 had been completed last. Smooth medium fast firm but receptive with very few un-repaired ball marks. Greens are good sized, do not have a lot of contours but enough slope and depending on pin location enough subtle break to cause a few head shakes.
Friendly check in and a monitor at 5 to assess speed of play--goal is 420--which is pretty realistic what with a couple of trouble holes that can create a jam.
As indicated playing conditions are really good but on this day some of the ancillary areas needed attention, the main bath room needed cleaning and restocking, the sand bottles on the cart were nearly empty, the water station on the back had no cups and the port-a-potty needed some attention.
6/17 using their Palm card off at 750 POP 340 with really no waiting until 15.Early am mist and damp conditions thru 1st 9. Front 9 fairways recently punched with remaining nickle sized holes with current local rule to place if in one of the holes. Plugs had been swept up so lies overall were good. 10. 11 and 12 were just punched so there was residue to deal with and these fairways were well watered as well. The remaining fairways were yet to be processed.
The grass is tight and firm but with good cushion--quite healthy and the current work is to keep that standard--just a slight inconvenience.
Rough is cut to about 2 inches and is rather whispy slows the ball some but ok to play out of. Until you get near the greens and on the slopes, thick juicy and tenacious.
Bunkers mostly ok but some on the front were wet to the point of having standing water.
Tees level and had good cover.
Greens smooth healthy looking rolling medium fast and gaining speed as the day warmed. Really like the 6 zone approach and because the greens are large with lots of contour there are even more opportunities for interesting pin placements within each zone.
Very friendly staff easy check in and well managed golfer management. Really good to see Nikki at the counter today.
6/7 using teeoff deal time 1$16 with discount--POP just under 4hr. Playing as a 2some had some waiting but not bad overall. Fairways remain in good shape tending to be rather wet in places from the abundant over night watering. Rough cut to about 1-2 inches along fairways and longer closer to the greens--degree of challenge was dependent on the exact lie, sometimes sitting up and others sinking deep.
Bunkers were mostly groomed and looked a little better than they played, looking to have more sand but often thinish over hard pack needing more of a square/closed club face to avoid the deadly bounce with out sand shot. Tees have some issues with slope as a factor depending on marker placement and not generally aesthetically pleasing but playable.
Something is going on with the greens as they are often multi colored and appear to have different grasses and show more evidence of post punching than a week ago with areas of dark green quarter size circles. Even with the uneven appearance they rolled pretty well and were smoother overall than would be expected from the look.
Friendly helpful staff.
6/3 $42 to ride with the special daily rate, playing with my son Grant(very much a recreational player) and shirt tail relatives in law from Scotland, Paul(a scratch golfer) and his father Ian(who has recently returned to the game)--a very enjoyable round with a lot of humor and jovial interaction.
Fairways generally in good shape firm enough for a little roll out but good cushion and good lies. Did notice quite a few unfilled divots probably related to the # of walkers that the course attracts. Rough was cut down to about 2 inches enough to slow the ball but not to penal for shots. Found 2 fairway bunkers that were more on the soft side which requires a more precise strike and 1 green side with ample groomed sand. Tees had good coverage and level.
Greens rolled medium-medium fast and were consistent for the round. Greens are well contoured with pin placements in 4 zones. Today most pins were more centered in the zone making them somewhat more accessible. However with the slope surrounding most greens a near miss adds an extra 5-10 yards on the scramble.
Friendly golfer oriented staff. POP right at 4 hr with occasional waiting but with the setting and the company it was enjoyable.
5/29 using the palm card teed off at 800 joined by John and Kai friendly quality playing partners just under 4hr POP with no one insight ahead or behind. Finally a balmy spring am with just enough breeze to occasionally factor in for shot selection. Excellent customer service with easy check in.
Fairways are fairly firm but have good cushion the lies looking to be tighter than they are. Tees generally in good shape. Rough along fairways did not seem to be too difficult but was varied in thickness so a foot or 2 could make a big difference. However around the greens on the slopes and in the hollows it became absolutely beastly. You could miss the fringe by 3 inches and be in 2+ inches of entangled tenacious blades of grass just defying your best intentions.(and of course often being short sided did not help).
Found 2 bunkers one had lot of heavy sand the other looked to be the same but was actually thin over hard pack.
Greens were quite good and consistent thru the day rated at 10.5 for speed. Found too many unrepaired ball marks for a quality course that is supposed to attract a higher caliber of golfer.
5/24 using teeoff deal time $17 rate--POP 350 but felt longer as we waited on the 4some we caught on 6 then really waited on a deliberate "we play slow and dont care" 2some that let them through on 9.
to be fair they did offer to let us go but my partner thought we would just get sandwiched, but after watching their behaviors I was going to ask if the offer was still good as they were on the white tees on 10. I went up to the blue tee which is 15-20 yards back and 10-15 yards off to the side just check where the 4some was(already on the next tee). At that point this guy starts yelling to not stand behind him and to get back in the cart--so I guess it was not a good time to ask to play through.
Fairways remain in pretty good shape ok lies overall.
rough cut down to about an inch but still a challenge when the ball sank down. Tees not so good mostly thin and some on slopes. In the bunker on 3, looked ok but was groomed sand over hardpack.
Greens medium fast with occasional bumpiness. They have been cut but not yet rolled.
Friendly staff.
5 /20 using underpar $66 2some on a pleasant somewhat breezy am. Had 1000 tee time but Don the jovial starter gave us the option of an early start so off at 920 joined by Linda a very enjoyable playing partner who even though she reported only playing for 2 1/2 years exhibited good athletic ability and a high golf IQ being very familiar with etiquette and overall awareness.
The course itself was in overall good condition, fairways quite lush, more on the soft side so limited roll but excellent lies. #9 has some mixed grasses so the potential exists for clumps to be a factor. A few unfilled divots here and there but not bad.
Rough mostly on the shorter side but with some areas very penal. Tees pretty much level with some a little thin but playable. Bunkers varied from full with nice compacted sand to thin coverage.
Greens are very healthy, on the soft side, smooth but having some grain to factor in rolling at medium speed. Topography has a great deal of influence on this course. Greens are most often fronted by swales of various sizes and with the kikouyu shots hit short stay short. Today no sequence on flag placement and all flags are the same color. GPS does give yardage to pin as well as front and back yardage.
The layout is "interesting" with many doglegs and some blind landing areas and multiple elevation changes.
POP about 415 with some waiting. Staff is friendly and easy going.
5/17 using teeoff $19 on a really nice sunny sometimes breezy spring day. Easy check in off early with a 320 POP waiting briefly on 17. Fairways have good cover were somewhat on the soft side so mostly limited roll. Rough along fairways was cut down to about 1 inch but there were occasional areas of longer thicker grasses. Areas closer to the greens also tended to be deeper and more challenging. Tees were inconsistent and mostly on the thin side with some markers placed on sloped areas. Bunkers also varied from full and groomed to thin and packed.
Greens are at least 90% recovered with little evidence of being punched 4/29 and 30. However they were not yet closely mowed and rolled so they were a little bumpy with more grain and are softer currently. Rolling medium/medium fast.
5/15 using their Weekday palm card, on a cool calm am POP 345 with a little wait on the last 3 holes. Easy check in, smooth start, paired with a friendly casual 2some. Course conditions overall are excellent with the fairways having good roll and good cushion. Tees lush and level.
Rough was generally about 2 inches long enough to stop the ball but ok to hit full shots depending on how deeply the ball sank. Rough around and behind greens and on slopes was longer and thicker making for very challenging chips and pitches. Bunkers have deep heavy well groomed sand.
Greens were reported at 10.5 rolled smoothly and at consistent speed. Really like the 6 area designation as the variety of pin placements provide for some very interesting locations.
Great course for a very reasonable cost. Currently doing some alterations, cutting down the size of that maw of a bunker on #4 and have removed some small trees left side of #14.
Nice carts with good GPS.
5/3 using group golfer $16 voucher, pleasantly warm easy 345 POP which could have been faster except for 2 wayward shots and an excess of 3 minutes spent looking. Fairways are lush almost to a fault as they were about 1/2 inch in length--compared to the 1 inch rough--and soft with little roll. Played the whites about 6300 but seemed longer. As indicated short rough but beyond that was either bare ground squirrel infested dirt or a combination of weeds and foxtails which were unforgiving.
Tees mostly had good cover but occasionally had an uneven quality with some low spots affecting stance. Bunkers were well groomed well filled with heavy sand which was playable overall.
Greens have an abundance of poa but rolled well with only minor grain or slight bumpiness to consider. Breaks were subtle and there did not appear to be a dominating topographical influence. The greens here are small often about 1/2 the size of newer developments with no real contours or levels.
Easy casual check in provided by friendly staff.
4/29 using the palm card stating off with a little drizzle which turned into a fairly steady rain for about 1/2 the time and of course when were finishing the last 2 holes the rain stopped and the sun peaked through. Good GPS and nice carts.
Fairways have good coverage and have been closely mowed which would have given better roll out if dry. Not much rough except in areas around and in front of most greens. Tees are level and generally have good cover. Some par 3 boxes were rather worn and had divots. Bunkers were groomed and of good quality but were rapidly filling with excess water as the round proceeded.
Greens were smooth green and healthy rolling medium fast even with the rain.
There has been a lot of effort to upgrade the conditions and it is really paying off. Too bad that there are too many customers and not enough golfers who have respect for the game as there were way too many unfilled divots and unrepaired ball marks.
POP was under 3 hours as expected for a nearly empty course.
Friendly staff easy check in. If you live within 60 minutes of the course the palm card provides an excellent value and the conditions are some of the best around.
