First round yesterday for 2021 and was the 3rd group out, we were only a 2some so the pace was excellent. We didn't push the guys in front of us and the group behind us was well behind that we really took out time and enjoyed the course. Course winds thru a housing complex so there are many areas marked as ob but I still think you can be aggressive or conservative and still score well. We walked and there is some elevation and walks between holes but I thought it was a pretty easy walk. I looked at my phone after the round and I walked 6.5 miles. Course is not overly long about 6800 from the back tees.

I have to be honest but these are some of the best greens I've putted on. Quite possibly some of the fastest greens I putted on. Really picked up pace as the greens dried out from the morning dew. Greens are really smooth too, it's nice to see that golfers take care and repair ball marks. Had a 15ft eagle putt and I had to lag that bad boy and still had a 4 footer comebacker.

My understanding is they did a fairway replacement last year so the fairways were a still a little firm but still fine to hit from. On a course like this balls tend to collect in certain areas so there is some divots in these areas. I was in 2 and one was filled in and the other was partially filled. I did think for the most part golfers did fill the divots with the sand bottles provided.

Rough doesn't really exist and gets a little suspect with some patchy/bare spots. When I got offline it was more about negotiating trees rather than rough.

Sand was good. I was in a couple of bunkers and all were raked and really consistent. I didn't see any (fairway or greenside) that hadn't been maintained.

I thought the staff was outstanding and the facilities are a tad dated but I'm not there for that. Range today was on the mats but there is grass which looks to be recovering from maintenance. Practice green is indicative of the actual greens. If you get an opportunity I'd recommend giving it a shot.

Played here a couple of times over the past couple of weeks and the conditions are pretty consistent with my last review. Just a couple of updates is the rough seems to be in maintenance mode in that it’s not growing wildly but being kept up. Don’t get me wrong it is still long, thick and you might lose a ball in it but at least I see mowers out there cutting down some. I’m rating the bunkers at a 1 until I see some changes. I’ve written about this before but my last round was the final straw. I hit into the bunker on 8 and it took 4 of us to find it. I kid you not the only thing you could see was the ball the size of a dime. It’s just ridiculous and stupid. As far as pace goes it was anywhere between 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 hour rounds. Did get paired with some guys who played at 9ish and said their round was 5 1/2 hours long.

Played in the outing on Thursday and the pace was great, I believe we finished right at 4 hours. Pretty much agree with everyone else. Goose is in really good condition right now and should be included in your rotation. Phenomenal practice facility that must be used if you play here. Customer service is always some of the best I have come across, never had a bad experience here.

The greens are good. There were some bumpiness but generally putts rolled well. Fairways were great to hit from. A little on the soft side so not too much roll but they were cut nicely. I didn’t think the rough was too penal but could get a little sticky in spots. I wasn’t in a bunker but the one I noticed on 9 was pretty hard panned after watching a couple of the guys in our group hit out of. I did notice some other bunkers that were freshly raked.

Wind was a little sneaky towards the end. On 18 I had 152 and I hit a 165 club and still came up 20yds short. This was probably the mildest conditions I can remember playing and it’s still a sneaky tough course. I throughly enjoy the layout of the course, the conditions are always great and customer service outstanding. These are the reasons I’ll continue to make the drive up and play here.

On a side note anyone know what year we are in with the 100 year construction project on the 15? I swear every time I drive up there it’s a new traffic pattern....

First off yesterday and finished around 4 hours. Should have been quicker but the marina layer kept coming and going making it difficult to know exactly where your ball went.

Greens are ok. I'd prefer they get rolled and cut a little more. Some still seemed to show the effect of the punching so that may be a factor in why they aren't as good as they should be. Pretty receptive holding shots.

Fairways could use some cutting and a little soft. Not much roll in some spots.

Rough is still in overseeding mode. Not nearly as penalizing as the north but its growing and there are some thick spots. You can get lucky and get a good lie. I actually did hit a 3 wood out of it because I had a really nice lie.

Tee boxes are back at their normal spots and pretty good. I don't remember any unlevel or bad spots other than the areas they put the tees during the maintenance.

I don't know if I have done this before but I rated the sand a 1. I'm just really tired of these bunkers. Yesterday I had 4 plugged lies and I know you're thinking yeah that is an exaggeration or don't hit it there. My response would be I wish I were exaggerating and do you think I'm really trying to put in the bunker? I really don't get it. There is too much sand in spots and then you'll bottom out in others. I'm baffled. I did put a picture on the app of my last one.

Had the opportunity to play here this past week and I must say Sal’s last review is still pretty spot on.

Greens were some of the fastest greens that I can remember playing on. After some putts on the practice green I thought for certain there was a 4 putt in my future. While I didn’t 4 putt I certainly didn’t make many. I think I was over reading because of the speed. Nothing super crazy in undulation but they do have some slope.

Fairways were nice to hit from. There are some tight holes so accuracy is certainly key here. Not necessarily a course for bombers. Water does come into play on quite a few holes. Probably one of the tougher collections of par 3s I’ve played.

Rough did have some gnarly Bermuda that was a little tricky at times. But mostly the rough is hazard areas and if you get in there there is no finding that ball.

Tee boxes were nice. Some looked to have been resodded recently but it didn’t impact play.

A few odd hole designs for my taste but the course was in fabulous shape.

Played a couple of times since my last review and things are certainly on the upswing. Greens are getting fast. Even playing early in the morning I thought the greens are rolling very quickly. Still too many poorly repaired ball marks but man they are deceptively fast.

Tee boxes have been moved back to the normal spots except for 1 and 16 both are playing on the forward tee boxes.

I don't think the fairways and sand have changed much since my last review. A couple of bunkers need raking but others have been raked.

I saved the best (worst?) for last....the rough. It is getting punishing. That rough between 1 and 18 is the thickest I believe. We did lose some balls in the rough and there were some soft spots out there where a couple balls actually plugged making the search even more difficult. Certainly keep your eye peeled if you hit a wayward shot.

All in all I think its definitely worth playing if you're a glutton for punishment and if you can secure a tee time.

Played a couple of times this past week and it's been a month since the course has overseeded. The course has greened up. Kinda funny standing on tee box 10 and seeing how green the north is and then look at the south to see how brown that is. Quite the contrast.

Tee boxes are still up. The brown and green tees are together and the white and yellow tees are together. I wish they would move these around a bit because it doesn't look like they have moved any of the tees in a month as these areas are really worn out. Once they move the tees back to their normal spots everything will be fine but I have no idea when that is going to happen.

Greens are a little firm and a little quick. Still too many unrepaired or poorly repaired ball marks. I fixed quite a few during my rounds. Remember the maintenance a month ago did not punch the greens.

I really shouldn't rate the fairways since I only hit 3 in my last 2 rounds here but I did walk on them...Honestly the fairways are pretty healthy but a tad long and I thought they were a little soft. Probably still getting some water down on this overnight for the overseeding. I'd guess sometime soon they would get cut to a normal height.

Rough is growing and it actually looks like they did cut it down but even still we had to send out the search party on quite a few shots. It will be interesting if the course keeps watering how much they let the rough grow or if they will continue to cut it to a manageable height until the Farmers.

I was only in one bunker amazingly and it certainly could use a raking as where a lot of other bunkers I saw but with the covid rules in place it wasn't that much of an issue.

I believe the course will be starting construction either a week or 2 after the Farmers to prepare for the US Open. Some holes could be shut down to prepare for the driving range that is being built and a merchandise tent. I guess if no spectators are allowed then the tent wouldn't be necessary.

I'd wait to play if I was a non-resident. I think the conditions are pretty close to being better and the tees in the normal spots. For a resident I'm kind 50/50 on that one. The fairways/rough/greens are fine but the tee boxes up bother me. I feel like I'm cheating all the way up like that. Of course the other issue is securing a tee time but I'll leave that for the rant section of the forum.

Walked on yesterday. Got there at 6 and was the first one on the list. Got out a little after 7 and was in the 5th group. First tee time went off sometime between 6:30-6:45. Total pace of place was just under 4 hours so it pays to play early here.

Greens had been punched with the smaller holes. Some of the holes at the start of the round were fresher than the ones later. Greens seemed a little slower than normal but there was still quite a bit of morning dew on the greens that really slowed down the pace. The greens were also super soft. Combine these 2 and I don't think the greens were cut. The pace really impacted my chipping more than anything. I couldn't get myself to hit a chip firm enough to the hole. I kept expecting more roll out, yes I'm hard headed.

Fairways and rough are ok. There are bare areas throughout the course in both areas. Rough is pretty typical here, not penal or penalizing. Just more about navigating how to hit around/over/under trees.

I was in a couple of fairway bunkers and they were ok to hit from. I wasn't in a greenside bunker but I did notice they they hadn't been cared for in a while. No rakes but you'd think the course would rake them and I just remember most of them need some attention.

Tee boxes were a mixed bag. Some were good, some need grass, some need leveling and some need cutting.

I mean it was only $49 to walk which makes it pretty affordable and considering most courses are punching and overseeding right now. I've seen the course in better shape but its slim pickins right now. Beggars can't be choosers.

This will be a rather short review. Played yesterday and I was pretty surprised at how dry and brown the course is right now. I know they are punching and overseeding on 10/20-10/22 but it looks as though that should happen this week. I can't imagine what another 3 weeks will do to this course. Greens are actually decent but the rest of the course is awful. I'd avoid the course until December.

Last of the Bandon courses on my trip up here. This course was being built last time I was here so I was curious to get out here since Sheep Ranch has been completely booked up. Teed off a little after 8 and we finished right about 4 hours or maybe a tick over.

Holy smokes these are the biggest greens I have ever seen. Not only are they some of the biggest but have some of the largest slopes I have ever seen too. The are these little white spray painted dots that mark the edge of the green because the fringe and greens almost run together. I'm guessing this how it was done back in the day. I thought the greens were really smooth but slow. To me it doesn't seem like the grass on the greens on this course could ever get super fast. It seems like a much different type of putting surface than Trails and Dunes that I previously played.

Fairways are generous. I would say this course would be a place where a new golfer could play and enjoy because there is a lot of room here. I thought it would be very difficult to lose a ball here. The conditions were very good here too. Nice roll out on drives but you'll get some slopes and little pot bunkers that you'll have to deal with.

As I indicated earlier there is a lot of space here but the rough very much like Bandon is more of the sand dunes. You'll find your ball but may have to play off such a lie. There are a couple of places you don't want to miss like a few gorge bushes.

I was in one greenside bunker and I literally could not see the flag stick but like 40 yds away. I was just happy to get out of that. Course has some deep natural looking bunkers. Like the Bandon course the sand is pretty similar, more firmer.

Played 3 courses at the resort and I think I played 3 different courses in a sense. I like the resort can offer this bit of a variety to keep things fresh. Course is a little unique in the first 2 holes and the tee shot on 3 are on one side of a ridge along with the last 2 holes. The remaining holes are more exposed to the ocean on the other side of the ridge. Was a few degrees cooler and a little more wind over there too.

Played on Wed and teed off a little after 11 on what I would consider an outstanding day at the coast. Overcast, a light wind and mild temps were a welcome to the heat wave that hit the day we came in. I'd say about 1/2 the golfers were wearing shorts and half were wearing pants.

I'd say Bandon was my favorite on this trip but I didn't play Pacific or Sheep Ranch. I just like these courses on the coast with the scenic views.

Greens were great. Balls really do not make a mark when hitting these greens. In fact I don't recall fixing a ball mark all day. I don't think the greens are too gimmicky here but compared to the Punch Bowl I guess nothing is. I will say some putts did break more or less than I may have thought but it wasn't like I was putting over the whale buried in the middle of the putting green. Putts probably rolled at medium pace nothing really fast or slow.

Fairways are nice. Good grass and coverage. Much bigger than I remember from my previous time here. There might be some bare spots here and there but nothing I thought that was in play or big enough to be concerned about. I was told that the don't want the divots to be replaced because they have a crew that comes out and fills in the divots with sand.

Rough is more of the dunes and not necessarily the long grass that I'm typically used to so it was interesting to hit out of that. Also kind of unpredictable because I had no idea how the ball would come out.

I find it hard to believe I'm writing this but I wasn't in a typical bunker all day so I can't comment on those but it looks like the sand is on the firmer side. That would make sense since any fluffy sand would get blown away with any significant wind.

I didn't mention this in my Trails review but unless you play here quite a bit the caddies are extremely helpful. Even on Trails, here, and Old Mac there were some lines that they told me to take that I never would have guessed by standing on the tee box or even believed if I was looking at a yardage book.

Played yesterday with an 10ish tee time. Finished in 4 1/2 hours and really we didn't see the group in front of us or behind us. With Monday being very warm (over 90 degrees) we expected some warm temps. It was a little cooler but we were told that there was a fire that started in Napa over the weekend that was pushing up the smoke which caused a hazy look to the course. The sun even had the orange glow to it.

Greens were pretty great even though I 3 putted 4 times out here. I think what messed me up was going to the Punch Bowl the day before. I thought the greens might be a little slower than I usually play but were very smooth. The greens themselves are pretty firm and I hit some high shots that didn't seem to make a ball mark.

Fairways were pretty good too. Some might be a little longer than normal but that is more the exception than the norm. Good coverage, I don't remember that many bare spots or areas that needed attention.

Rough (native areas) was actually not bad to hit from. You do risk it going into this stuff as there is some big areas of grass where ball could be lost. I was fortunate not to find any.

I was in one greenside bunker and it was pretty soft. Fairway bunkers seemed like a darker type of sand, almost dirt like color. I think the design really played into the natural surroundings.

For a drink I recommend the Bandon Pale, that was a pretty good treat after the round. I didn't like this course the last time I played here over 10 years ago but I have a better appreciation for the course now. Even though this is on the property it feels completely different than the Dunes courses. There is more tree lined holes which is a nice change for the courses here.
