9/13 playing as a guest with the Wed mens club 825 teeoff with an outstanding POP of 4 hr.Fairways are in overall good shape with the turf being quite healthy with good cushion and is well watered to the point that the ground is rathw soft limiting runout.Due to the soft conditions there are a lot of large divots about 1/4 of which were not filled. There are some areas that have retained water and need to be marked off to prevent cart traffic. Also there are some areas in the swales close to the greens that are wet enough to qualify as casual water and are so soft and spongy that it could easily swallow an approch shot.
Rough is cut fairly short but is still a factor as it quickly stops shots andextraction varies depending on whether the ball sinks or sits up. Tees are in ok to good shape. Some par 3s have unfilled divots even with mix available but no scoops. Tee markers are being rotated but it did not appear that anyone was responsible to fill the divots from past locations.
Bunkers look to have ample sand but many are thin at the bottom and often damp. Many bunkers do not have the self grooming rakes so there were often some major fot prints even though the bunkers looked to hac=ve been freshly maintained.
Greens follow the theme of being quite soft leaving them very receptive but prone to large pitch marks and with the rather thin cover repairs are difficult. Many of the treens look damaged with spots and small bare spots. Don't know if the weater has imped3ed the greens growth or if they are getting too much water and not enough sun but they just look fragile. # 15 the par 3 and the 1st hole of the quandry looked to have the berst conditioned green with very good turf. Maybe due to more sun and a consistent breeze. IN spite of the appearance greens rolled pretty well even with the occasional bumps.
Check in was easy. Very friendly welcoming staff. Nice practice area with practice bunker, large chip and pitch green and well maintained putting green. @nd week in a row that the driving range had a delayed opening due to required work so did not get a full warm up but some things take priority and overall the course consistently is working to provide a really good golf experience.» Close
