9/9/18 = 9+9=18 Played 7:40 twosome following twosome and so on. Their earliest time is 7:30 to let the maintenance crew prep the course. That leaves a few early times and possible additional revenue loss but I don't manage or own just playing and saying.
Course conditions all around good. The greens had been light punched with small hole wide space tines in the last week and were a bit bumpy and slow. But if that is all the fall service schedule requires the greens should heal and be good to go in 5-7 days. The bunkers are finally playable and consistent on all holes. I was in a few hard packed machined darker sand/soil some impediments but an overall improvement from a few years of sketchy bunkers (some were GUR I think due to costs not the former excellent superintendent's efforts) I wonder if a topping of real bunker sand would make them excellent now? I don't know but machined and playable condition now.
Some tee boxes a bit shaggy and unlevel but I don't want to be over critical and the price point is not the upper elite green fee so in line with what I expect.
Overall great design and experience. A few more houses keep popping up around the perimeter, but still has the nature feel.
Woodpeckers, Hawks, mountain jays, buzzards, turkey, squirrel, deer spotted today.
Chipped in on the last two holes and took my opponent by two strokes so the lightly punched greens did not effect my last two holes. My buddy missing a 12" birdie putt on 12? Not 'cuz of the greens either. He made the par come backer!
Fun to play. Recommended.» Close
