5/17 using teeoff $19 on a really nice sunny sometimes breezy spring day. Easy check in off early with a 320 POP waiting briefly on 17. Fairways have good cover were somewhat on the soft side so mostly limited roll. Rough along fairways was cut down to about 1 inch but there were occasional areas of longer thicker grasses. Areas closer to the greens also tended to be deeper and more challenging. Tees were inconsistent and mostly on the thin side with some markers placed on sloped areas. Bunkers also varied from full and groomed to thin and packed.
Greens are at least 90% recovered with little evidence of being punched 4/29 and 30. However they were not yet closely mowed and rolled so they were a little bumpy with more grain and are softer currently. Rolling medium/medium fast.» Close

5/15 using their Weekday palm card, on a cool calm am POP 345 with a little wait on the last 3 holes. Easy check in, smooth start, paired with a friendly casual 2some. Course conditions overall are excellent with the fairways having good roll and good cushion. Tees lush and level.
Rough was generally about 2 inches long enough to stop the ball but ok to hit full shots depending on how deeply the ball sank. Rough around and behind greens and on slopes was longer and thicker making for very challenging chips and pitches. Bunkers have deep heavy well groomed sand.
Greens were reported at 10.5 rolled smoothly and at consistent speed. Really like the 6 area designation as the variety of pin placements provide for some very interesting locations.
Great course for a very reasonable cost. Currently doing some alterations, cutting down the size of that maw of a bunker on #4 and have removed some small trees left side of #14.
Nice carts with good GPS.» Close

5/3 using group golfer $16 voucher, pleasantly warm easy 345 POP which could have been faster except for 2 wayward shots and an excess of 3 minutes spent looking. Fairways are lush almost to a fault as they were about 1/2 inch in length--compared to the 1 inch rough--and soft with little roll. Played the whites about 6300 but seemed longer. As indicated short rough but beyond that was either bare ground squirrel infested dirt or a combination of weeds and foxtails which were unforgiving.
Tees mostly had good cover but occasionally had an uneven quality with some low spots affecting stance. Bunkers were well groomed well filled with heavy sand which was playable overall.
Greens have an abundance of poa but rolled well with only minor grain or slight bumpiness to consider. Breaks were subtle and there did not appear to be a dominating topographical influence. The greens here are small often about 1/2 the size of newer developments with no real contours or levels.

4/29 using the palm card stating off with a little drizzle which turned into a fairly steady rain for about 1/2 the time and of course when were finishing the last 2 holes the rain stopped and the sun peaked through. Good GPS and nice carts.
Fairways have good coverage and have been closely mowed which would have given better roll out if dry. Not much rough except in areas around and in front of most greens. Tees are level and generally have good cover. Some par 3 boxes were rather worn and had divots. Bunkers were groomed and of good quality but were rapidly filling with excess water as the round proceeded.
Greens were smooth green and healthy rolling medium fast even with the rain.
There has been a lot of effort to upgrade the conditions and it is really paying off. Too bad that there are too many customers and not enough golfers who have respect for the game as there were way too many unfilled divots and unrepaired ball marks.
POP was under 3 hours as expected for a nearly empty course.
Friendly staff easy check in. If you live within 60 minutes of the course the palm card provides an excellent value and the conditions are some of the best around.» Close

4/22 216 tee off with invite to join Leef2020, Mike and Ken. I had just completed my review and went to submit but my internet went down and when I went to reconnect I lost it all. So this is going to be brief and to the point. Had a great time with these guys with good weather and excellent scenery making the 445 POP more tolerable. Course is in good shape overall and the $42 fee was worth it. Fairways have good cover firm enough for some roll but with good cushion. Rough not overly long but presented a challenge depending on the lie. Tees level with some a little shaggy but ok. No 1st hand experience with the bunkers but they looked ok.
Green quick enough and consistent for speed, Did notice that with the later start foot traffic was evident especially with front pins leading to some bumpiness.» Close
