Played today in a great POP of 3 hours, under nice cool cloudy skies. Course is in good shape, but signs of drying out in the fairways are appearing; tee boxes clean but they do need leveling one of these days; fairways provided good lies and run out, provided you did not roll into some of the dry areas; rough is about 1/2 thick/sticky; bunkers (what little they have & I like that) appeared fine and heard no complaints; greens are small on this course, but they are in great shape and fast. Customer service in the shop excellent, as well as the ladies in the restaurant.

Played today in a nice POP of 4 hours, in dense fog. Place to go if you want to beat the heat? Never lifted until we came off 18. Course is in good condition, since our last weeks round, but we noticed that the greens, now have a fungus (look bad but putt/chip fine and not all have it). With the fog and hot days, the greens can get a fungus/mold, if they cannot dry out properly (pro shop explanation). Sad to see, as they were in great shape last week. The rest of the course is very playable. Tee boxes good; fairways provided good lies all round, though some fairways have GUR circles; sand traps were fine and heard no complaints; you will find some rough outside most of the fairways. Customer service excellent at all levels.

Back out today for a quick round before the heat wave. And we did just that. Early start and ended in 2.5 hours. Course is in good shape, except the bunkers were all wet/crusty. Tee boxes just fine; fairways green, rolling and good lies; virtually no rough to speak of; greens were in great shape, as they were mowed/clean and chipping/putting just fine. Customer service excellent (thanks Pete). No time today to enjoy the food and great prices at Birdies.

Played today in a great pace of 3 hours. Nice and comfortable when started and just warming up when we finished. Found the course to be a great shape. Tee boxes clean and playable; fairways with nice lies all round and good roll out; sand traps were wet from overnight dew/watering and played difficult (many complaints); rough was up outside of fairways and around greens and difficult; greens were just great, chipping, putting, holding shots and fast. Customer service excellent at all levels. Play if before it gets to hot and the course browns out?

Played today in a POP of 4 hours. I would have to say, I was not pleased with customer service today from a marshals standpoint. Total chaos on the tee box between 5:15 and 6 AM and nobody did a d%mn thing to rectify it. Personally, if you are planning to play between 5 and 6 during the summer hours, show the he!! up on time and be ready to go (please). The golf course is not your PERSONAL playground. And the marshal should take charge, not accept the BS from the players. Course is in great shape. Tee boxes are just fine; fairways are providing good to great lies and nice roll out as well; there is now rough outside the fairways and around the greens and it is hard to play from; the cutting of areas before and around greens is very nice; sand traps were all clean and playable (heard no complaints); greens were terrific and appeared to be in the best shape I have seen them in a long time. Customer service in the shop and restaurant was very good, as usual.

Happy to report, all is clean and playable once again. Out today and no issues with all the cleaning being done early week. Tee boxes fine; fairways fine (though some were still wet from overnight watering); rough fine/playable; sand traps clean/playable; greens are in very nice shape, after last weeks vertical cutting. Customer service excellent at all levels. I was told that next Tues June 13, there will be a big junior event with over 150 participants? Might be a good day to stay away (LOL)

Played today in a great POP of 2.5 hours. Course is in good shape. Tee boxes were clean and level. Fairways were providing decent roll but good lies. Rough is 1/4 inch (IMO) but playable on some (not all) shots. Bunkers need work, as they were hard packed and not loose sand. Greens were good, but a bit slow (compared to putting green) but very playable once you got the speed worked out. Customer service was excellent. With the June gloom we are experiencing, I would expect the course (with proper care) to stay in relatively decent shape over the next many weeks?

Played this AM and found them aerating ALL the tee boxes and vertical cutting ALL the greens (GK does not show any maintenance so A G C did not notify GK). The poor guy in the pro shop did not even inform me of this, so I suspect he was not made aware of it (which he normally would say)? It really made for a messy 18 holes of golf. The fairways were in good shape (lol). And I was able to get in front of the aeration (slightly) on the back 9 but unfortunately, the greens had not been cut and where wet. Sand traps were all wet from overnight watering (lucky I was only in 1).

Played June 4. Having played here a few years ago, we wanted to go back and see if things had changed? Not in the least. They have only gotten better as the course has matured. We found the course just as enjoyable and intimidating as several years ago. I find it strange that I am still the only reviewer of this course since 2013? I really have nothing to say, that I have not said in my previous review about the course. If you are in the area and have time to play, do it. This is a course I will continue to try and go back to and play for a long time. Just so unique and different and yes, it is (as I said before) a love or hate type of course, but if you love golf, you will love (IMO) this Jim Engh design.

Played June 3. This is the "unknown" course at the AF Academy. Most of the accolades go to the Blue. But don't miss this one, if you are in the area. The Silver, unlike the Blue, has a lot more elevation changes to it. Truly an enjoyable play. The day before when we played the Blue, we experienced a torrential rain storm, that had play suspended for over an hour (had forgotten what that experience is like and do not miss it) but we found the Silver course to be very playable. Tee boxes all clean and mostly level and no issues. Fairways were lush/green and even with the rain previously, provided good roll, not to mention "pristine" lies (something hard to find in CA public courses). Bunkers were actually OK (even with the rain). Rough was tall/tough/thick and lots of OB's to contend with, if you sprayed your tee shots (fairways are generous though). Greens were fast, undulating, large and you "never" wanted to be above the hole. While the blue gets most of the play here, the Silver course more than holds it own. Highly recommended.

Played June 3. This course is about 20 miles N W of Co Springs and is at an elevation of 7,000 feet. Beautiful course that is laid out through meadows and wetlands. Difficult course, as you deal with wind in the afternoons, as well as the course is very narrow, due to the springs and wetlands running through it. As it is just early June, the course is just now beginning to fill in, as they had a wet spring, but a great amount of snow, that kept the course in good shape for the summer months. We found the tee boxes to be in very nice shape. The fairways had decent coverage, but there were some thin spots and the lies were not as lush, as the courses down in CO Springs and surrounding areas. Sand traps were in bad shape, due to a huge rainstorm the day before. Rough is tall and penal and many many areas of out of bounds, from streams and wetlands. Greens appeared acceptable, but were slow. All in all, a great course to play, should one be in the CO Springs area. And yes, the ball does travel a long way at 7K feet. Great customer service and a terrific Italian restaurant attached to the clubhouse.

Played today. Great course located on the AF Academy in CO Springs and done by Robert Trent Jones. And available to the public. Course is in nice green condition from tee to green. In fact, we had to seek shelter for about an hour, during a fierce thunder/lightening storm today (glad they had so many shelters on the course). Tee boxes are level/clean; fairways are lush/green with great lies and good roll; rough is high along the fairways and tough; many deep and large bunkers around all the greens; sandtraps were very good/playable; greens were rolling fast (even after the rain). Great course (gets a lot of play, great rates) and a course not to miss if in the CO Springs area.
