I'm told the course will not be on our rotation again, but played it in a tourney on Sunday, August 6. On the plus side, the pace of play was decent, about 4:30.

The holes on the clubhouse side of the street are decently lush. The fairways were lush. The sand was good in both bunkers I was in. There was gnarly rough in places and we spent a lot of time looking for balls not that far off the fairway. The course is less lush on the driving range side of the street. The golf carts are amazingly durable considering all the gopher mounds in the rough in places. About as rough a ride as I can remember.

The greens were pretty good. A bit too bumpy, and a bit too soft (probably connected). Decent speed but not as nice or as fast as the practice green.

No drink cart. Nice bar and the food looked better than average. They were advertising on the 9th tee a Hot Dog of the Month Special - Bacon wrapped hot dog with barbecue sauce, cheese and green onions. Really?

Its golf but I am in no hurry to get back.

Played Friday and Sunday, July 28 and 30, both relatively early rounds. Pace of play was excellent on Friday (3:45) and great on Sunday (3:20). The service is excellent in the pro shop. It is good in the coffee shop as well although the spot is popular with local residents so it can take a while to get food.

The course was in good shape. The water features contain water again. The rough is thick generally and nasty in some places. The fairways were shaggy and quite wet so there was not as much roll as you would expect. The heat was the likely reason. The greens were good. They were running at medium speed with some bumps because they were soft making footprints a factor. The sand was just okay because there were quite a few rocks present. The tee boxes had some crowning.

I like the course layout and enjoy it. I recommend it although word to the wise - use bug spray. The mosquitoes killed us on Friday.

Played here for the first time in a tournament on Sunday, July 9. I had avoided the course the last few years because of reviews on pace of play. Those reviews proved true as it was a solid 5.5 hour round on a hot day. Not as hot as inland though as one could tell we were fairly close to the ocean.

The course layout was kind of confusing in that the separation between it and the sister course was not that clear at times. At one point, we had to tell a group that jumped in front of us (the group playing in front stopped at the snack stand in the middle of the back nine) that they were on the wrong course. I was surprised that there were no out of bounds delineations between the courses.

The course had decent conditions. The rough was up so much that we had to search for balls often. From a comment from another player, I gathered that was unusual. I had a couple of really tough lies in the rough. The fairways and sand traps were fine. The greens were of decent speed (faster than the practice green) but had some bumps that kept it interesting.

Nice facilities, good customer service throughout. Saw the cart ladies multiple times. $4.50 for an 805 after the round. I might be back but it is not a sure thing.

Played Sunday in the last leg of a two day tourney. I liked this course better than the Vineyard. It looks newer. It plays higher in elevation and there are some great views of the surrounding area.

The conditions were very nice. The City gross championship is here next weekend and the rough was definitely higher than Vineyard (where they are playing the Senior and Net championships). The greens were a lot faster. They were said to be 11.5 on the stimp. The greens are relatively undulating and any faster would have been tough. I thought they ran true and nice at the present speed.

The only negative was the thin layer of sand in the bunkers. I was in two. I was lucky the ball hit the lip on one when I tried to blast out and hit the ball on the bounce. I liked they had a snack house at the turn.

The layout was more visually intimidating than Vineyard with more water. Once again, course knowledge would have been nice.

Played the two courses for the first time this last weekend, with Vineyard being the first on Saturday. I was in a tournament but my interaction with the staff was positive. They were cheerful and efficient. The marshals were all over the tournament site but I did not hear any grumping about negative interactions. Pace of play was about 4:45 which was decent for an event like this.

I liked the course. I thought it was in pretty good shape. Decently lush fairway and rough. I was not in any bunkers. The greens were a little shaggy. I heard 10.5 on the stimp but I thought they were a little slower. They were okay, but not as fast as I had expected from other reviews.

It was a course in which some course experience would have been handy. Quite a few blind tee shots. I do not know if it would have helped my score but it would have been some comfort. I would play here again.

I should add that quite a few of us stayed at the adjacent Marriott Residence Inn. It is right on the 13th hole and one could walk to the clubhouse. Decent rate at a great location for the golf.

Played today with a 6:30 am tee time. They let us out early so I walked straight from the starter's booth to the tee. Played in about 4 hours. The course is in good shape. Overall, great lies in the fairways. The rough was generally cut down where it came into play so there was not a problem finding balls. Pretty lush though. The tees were okay. The grass was a little high for me but otherwise fine. The greens looked good but were running medium at best. They were shaggy apparently because they did not break as much as I have seen in the past. Good experience (except for the 9 on the first hole).

Played early on Saturday, May 6. Great pace of play at 3:45. The course was in decent shape. The fairways gave a decent playing surface. The rough was inconsistent with many bare lies. I was not in any sand so cannot comment on it. The tee boxes were level if somewhat chewed up. The greens were mostly recovered from aeration but were still a little shaggy and slower than usual. They also still had some bumps but generally rolled okay. Got rained on a little and the moisture made a course that plays long in general play longer today. Good time though and recommended.

Played in a men's club tourney on Saturday, April 22. Course was in pretty good conditions. The greens were in outstanding condition likely because the aeration of the second half of the greens has been delayed twice now. The previously aerated sides have healed and the greens were pretty firm overall. I predict they will be finishing the aeration this week though.

The sand was deep and soft, the fairways are still pretty lush, the rough is hope and pray. The tee boxes are okay. It was not as clear as last week but still spectacular in terms of scenery.

The men's club is trying to crack down on pace of play so hopefully public play after the tourneys is not impacted as it has been in the past. There were a couple of very difficult pin positions (#5 and 12, par threes), though, that were not designed to speed play.

Played Saturday and Sunday, both times in the morning, on a $99 for two Under Par certificate for unlimited golf. There was a frost delay both days, with the course opening between 8:00 and 9:00 am. The course handled it well in my opinion, sending groups off both tees. We did have an hour delay on Sunday in our start. With the compression of groups, pace of play was not great. It was about 4.5 hours on Saturday and about 5 hours on Sunday.

The weather was beautiful both days except for the chill in the mornings. The course had a chance to dry out and for the most part was good. There were some muddy parts to the fairways on some holes which were generally roped off. There was also not much roll out although it was better on Sunday than it was on Saturday. The course was lush. The rough had been cut and we were able to find balls but it was still thick enough to be punitive. The greens were good. Good speed and generally true. Both days there were a couple of holes with pin placements that were borderline unfair, but otherwise nothing to complain about on the greens.

The sand traps were the low light of the course. There was standing water and mud in many of the greenside bunkers. In several there was no sand with the ground being very hard at the bottom. I hit out of one on #9 and there was no way to get under the ball. I was lucky my ball hit the lip as it went screaming on its way, and ended up on the green. The bunkers had obviously been hard hit by the rains. That said, there were a some where the sand was acceptable and played as normal.

The service was very good under trying circumstances for the course. They handled it with grace. They were also great in accommodating us considering we had a cancellation and so had three people with pre-paid certificates for two people each. The food staff was great. Had a good tri-tip sandwich. Curiously we saw a beverage cart on Saturday morning, once, and never saw it again all weekend. Otherwise, I was very happy with the service.

Highly recommended.

Quagmire. Morass. Pretty darn wet. Played lift clean and place but at times was hard to find a spot without casual water to hit it. Some of the tee boxes, including #1, felt my feet sink into the "grass" as I settled in for my shot. They obviously had not had a chance to mow so the fairways were shaggy. There were pools of water in many sand traps and in some all the sand had washed down to the bottom, leaving steep hard walls. The greens were pretty good. They rolled well even with the footprints. Slower than normal though.

The course played really, really long because of the conditions.

It looked like a holiday weekend out there. As I was getting my clubs out of the car, I saw a guy walking out with his clubs and getting in his car. Obviously a single that could not get on. It was packed for early morning. We had a 7:30ish tee time and started half hour late. POP 5 hours.

I had a good time out there, fun group of guys and competitive golf. It was not easy to enjoy at times though considering the conditions.

Played Sunday, 10/30, with my bro for his birthday, teeing off at 9:00. Used an Underpar cert I purchased in July. Smooth sailing through check-in, nice work by the starter on communicating our position in the line up, and good service in the restaurant. The experience was good. We were scheduled to go out with another twosome but they did not show up so we had the course to ourselves. Literally it seemed. We never saw anyone in front of us. The ladies behind pressed us on the first hole and when we were putting on the second, then we did not see them again until 18. About 3.5 hours POP, re-doing many putts we missed and generally taking our time.

The course was in pretty good shape. The tees, fairways, rough and bunkers were all in lush and excellent shape. There was not much roll, have to think the rain softened it up some. The greens were okay. Fairly soft so showing footprints but generally the ball rolled well. There were some problems around the edges of some greens where they had sand in place. Still a temporary on No. 7.

Overall, a good experience. It was a great deal at the price and the POP and service were top notch.

Played about 7:00 am today. Walked up and was on the tee within 10 minutes. Enjoyable round and turned out the threesome I joined had two players I had played with before. Good time. Did I mention we played in 3:40? Great pace of play considering three of us were walking.

I had not played Wilson in quite a while. It was in pretty good shape. The course was lush. I was in no bare spots in the fairway. There was no roll considering how wet it was that early. The rough, cut to about ball height, was very much a factor and was much, much thicker than the rough on the west side I have been playing. The sand was thick and wet in the one trap I was in.

The greens were disappointing to me. They look like they had not fully healed from the last aeration, whenever that was, and they had a heavy top dressing of sand. They were relatively slow with quite a few bumps. That said, there were quite a few birdies in our group so they were rolling okay. Not as good as Harding last time I played it and not as good as this course usually is.

Service was great. The lady in the coffee shop is a sweetie, the lady in the half way house wanted to make sure I had all the necessities for the boiled eggs I bought, and I really appreciated the starter looking for and filling the group about to hit the tee.

The course is recommended and I bet next week the greens will be nice after the sand is assimilated and they are cut.
