I played Twin Oaks on 3/11/2018. The course was soggy from the rain the previous day but overall in decent shape with very good greens.
We teed off at 10:30 as a twosome. I do not think the starter does a good job of pairing groups up here because there was a lot of twosomes on the course. We passed a slow playing foursome in route to finishing in around four hours and 45 minutes. The whole course was cart path only which contributed to the overall slow day.
The tee boxes are a little shaggy for my tastes you had to tee up the ball on a few par threes (number 3 I specifically recall). But they were level and minimal divots.
The fairways I think could benefit from this rain. They were a little soggy and looked a little thin. I think in a week or two they will be in very good shape.
I was in a few bunkers. There was some standing water in a few (as previously mentioned it rained the day before). Overlooking that the sand was of a pretty good quality. The rough around the green is about half a ball deep but still able to get up and down a few times.
The greens are rolling very nicely and are the best part of the course. There are a few ball marks on some of the holes. There are a few holes that are on top of a small mound and those have the most ball marks.
The course overall is very narrow for four holes then opens up. There is not alot of risk reward holes as I would like. There are a few holes where you dont want to hit driver or risk end up in water (hole 9) or a blind shot in the bottom of a ravine (hole 14). There are a couple of longer par 3's that I dont really care for and seem to slow down play. I dont know why they put a 175-190 par three (from the whites) on hole 10 and god help you if you have to go off the back to start the round.
Overall I like the course and it is in decent shape that should only improve after the grass has time to grow after the rains.
Despite the rain the day before I saw the cart person out quite a few times and the homemade/made on site potato chips in the bar after the round were amazing.» Close
