Early out with Alex326 Tuesday morning with a deal from a national reseller. So the value was there to travel in with great late winter weather. Mostly sunny breeze 42-55 degrees right in the range of our 9 hole scores.
Great fun and challenging but fair. Without water hazards I kept the same ball all around which was different to other recent rounds.
from course website:
"With the removal of the Kikuyu and poa annua, all of the new turf is Jacklin T1 Bentgrass, a type that is superior in density and performance that will allow not only for better roll, but will harmonize with the state-of-the-industry drainage and irrigation systems installed on all 36 holes." The renovation was 2007-2010 range. So the course is mature and plays well.
I usually play in early November annually. Fun to play a different time of year. The greens while challenging are not as tough as then. IMO
Alex did a dandy description of conditions. I will add that the some areas of rough is being loamed and over-seeded in the thin spots and sprouting. Growing out will provide lush greenery this spring/summer. These areas of unmarked "gur" helped me with drops from the large trees edging most all fairways a couple times. They removed thousands during renovation. Still many many left.
Home lot prep / construction on some holes as well as tree chipping, pruning seems to be a regular procedure.
A high caliber tournament ready venue that has always had a thumbs-up from me.
Played with a couple gentlemen with LinkSoul connections. Good time.» Close
