I used the GK Special to play Wednesday, 7/3, teeing off at about 9am. WHAT A DEAL! I hadn't played CrossCreek in over five years, and I had forgotten what a nice layout it is, and the unspoiled area surrounding the course is really beautiful. Course conditions were very good, overall. The tee boxes were mostly fine, with some understandable distress on the shorter par threes. Fairways were mostly great, with some absolutely perfect lies in many cases (just like on TV). The bunkers were well maintained, with the heavier brown sand. The greens were the best part. Mostly medium-fast, but certain putts in certain directions ran out way more than I anticipated. I found that it was a good strategy to be less aggressive on most putts. Pace of play was great. I played as a single and only played through one group at the turn. I finished in under 3 hours, often hitting practice shots along the way. I highly recommend CrossCreek at this time, especially with the GK Special. THANKS, JOHNNY!
Worst hole on the course. Leave the driver in the bag and try to hit something 200ish up the left side and pray it doesn't take a hard bounce into the water on the right. You'll be left with a semi-blind short iron to a green that angles away from you.
