1/29 birthday round $20 cart fee, greeted cheerfully and advised by pro shop that as a 2some we could go out early to not be behind groups of 4somes resulting in an easy 330 POP Starting without any significant warm up was ok --must have still been loose from all those swings yesterday with a . My playing partner birdied #1, me I easily doubled his score counting my shot into the penalty area.
Fairways are generally dormant and thin with some areas that still have grass with good root structure--lies were pretty much ok however. Not much rough along fairways but more of an issue closer to the greens. Tees level but mostly thin but playable. Course is doing turf reduction around tee boxes and will have a distinctive look when completed.
The 4 greenside bunkers I visited had deep well groomed sand and the one fairway bunker was more on the softer side than I would prefer.
The greens played better than they looked as many were multi-colored and mottled in appearance. Some had small bare areas near the perimeters and some had areas that had been re-sodded. Overall speed about medium and with many being a little bumpy keeping up speed to stay on line took priority. Keeping the flag in sure seemed to help.
Good layout scenic and pleasant.» Close
