12/9 GK outing played with my son Grant and two of long time friends from high school Rod and Rich--they are not very good but the have fun and have their moments and they do like to have something on the line--played bingo bango bongo for the 1st time--helped pay for the entry--thank you guys.
fairways are green and lush--cut tight--especially close to the green--required a really crisp contact for chips and pitches off those tight lies. Lot of unfilled divots some almost canyon size--evidently there was a 4 day junior tourney last week which added to the wear since they were all walking.
Rough was thick, not too long but effective at quickly stopping forward progress.
Bunkers have really good sand--fine grained but nicely compacted. Tees in good shape.
Greens were quite fast and firm with a lot of roll out on chips and pitches. Seemed hard to read for our group and I had trouble keeping the ball on line on the 4-5 footers as I could not get the speed and line correctly.
Not accustomed to so many staff every where practically demanding to be helpful--like insisting that they carry your bag from the drop off downstairs to the cart as an example--I think I could get used to such pampering--oh and very friendly and welcoming too.
My rating came out on the high side--more accurately somewhere around 7.2» Close
