Played Green River with a bud Saturday morning, got around in 4.5 hrs with a bit of waiting, $60 w/cart and sm bucket ... was able to make the 7:30 tee time on a Thursday. Running late off the tee about 15 min. Found course in decent shape with several greens in distress but did not really affect play, rolling medium speed with a few bumps and bruises to navigate. Tree lined fairways (plenty of shade to hide from the sun) had mostly good lies but the turf gets thin if you run one near the edges. Bunkers looked okay just dry and wispy, stayed out of them today.
Overall I really enjoy the parkland layout here but only get to play it once or twice a year. Very walkable (one good hill where the clubhouse is located) but due to the heat, we used e-carts today. Good return on investment and you can usually get a tee time.

A few of the greens had some issues, but overall, they were reasonably true. Fairways were decent, some dormant areas. Bunkers were inconsistent.
While I enjoy this course, I sure miss the days when there were two courses. Some of the distances between holes are a bit excessive, but mostly there are just a number of holes on the "old courses" which I miss playing
I also like the layout. However, the last time I was there (which was at the of July), I was told by the starter that they are going to be shortening 17 and 18. The reason was, if you notice(d) those pipes that lie along side 17, those pipes have to go in the ground. Apparently, it was supposed to s...
Fun closing hole with an eagle and triple both in play. Going left off the tee is jail, but if you do challenge the corner, it'll shorten your approach by 25 yards. Just be sure you can fly it 250 otherwise you'll have nothing. Green is slightly elevated, but is quite receptive so don't be afraid of going right after the pin.
So this is a par 5 now, slight dogleg right and easily reachable when the wind is down (different story if you're into a gale force wind). Keep your approach right as the right side is much easier to get up and down than the left, regardless of pin position.
