7/2 pleasant day with enough breeze to keep it pleasant. Used underpar voucher $66 2some easy friendly check in with a "you are good to go" got the cart loaded and on the way to the range saw that 1st tee was open with no starter and no one apparently waiting so off we went with another single that had the same idea. About 20 minutes out did see another single behind us who had no interest in joining up and further back there was a womens outing of maybe 10 4somes.
Fairways and rough kick-you as the word of the day--good lies for the most part but not much roll and anywhere in the rough was dead stop with some challenge going forward. Even areas in front of the green prevented bounce ups and short stayed short.
Tees had ok cover some a little thin and many had some slope/slant or uneven footing.
Bunkers were freshly groomed and had fine but compacted sand--no rakes but not a lot of foot prints.
Greens have a really healthy look medium to medium fast speed with subtleties that overall made for a long putting day. With many green constructed into the hillsides topography is always an issue as well as the general slope. Most do not have a lot of contour with the exception of #12 that beast of a par 5 that bends left at 90 degrees and climbs steadily upward to plateau with a sloped green and a dime sized area top left that is further elevated another 3 feet--where the flag was today--miss a little short and you have a 40 foot putt and the possible opportunity to try the putt again if you only hit the 1st one 36 feet.
Course layout has some quirks many doglegs and uneven lies along with lots of elevation changes. Players who can hit long and straight hit with amplitude and can flight their shots to specific yardage miss out on struggles we encountered. Still fun every once in a while and course conditions made for a worthwhile outing. POP front about 2 with brief waits and 220 for the back with waiting on every shot as the field caught up to the early starters.» Close
