The course was in pretty good overall shape. The tee boxes have been overseeded and were playing well, though a few could use some leveling out. The fairways were tight and firm with lots of rollout. Some fluffy areas, some thin areas. Lies were inconsistent throughout the day, but still pretty good playability. Rough more of a mixed bag in terms of coverage with some clumpy spots around edges of fairways greens, but cut down and not too much of a factor. I was in two fairway bunkers. They were both very firm. Not in any greenside bunkers, though, so no comments there. The highlight of the course was by far the greens. They were firm, yet receptive, and rolling very fast on putts. I did notice an unusual number of tiny rocks on some greens and rabbit droppings on others, but the surfaces were overall really nice.
It’s been a little while since I last played here. I have always liked the layout here and the setting. Things will probably brown out a little more as the winter goes on and the fairways get more and more dormant. However, it seems they are keeping the greens in great shape and the playability of the course is fine overall. It’s clear from my previous visit to now that this is a course headed back in the right direction after some ups and downs in recent years.

EG is a challenging track. Elevation changes from some of the tee boxes have great views but also impact your drives. Pace of play for this afternoon was 4.5 hours and could have been a bit faster but had to wait on a couple of holes. Easy to lose balls out there if you spray your drives and many golfers go into the weeds looking for them.
Course is starting to show winter wear. Tight lies in the fairways as the Bermuda grass is starting to go dormant. Found a lot of bare spots in the fairway. Over seeding has taken place on the tee boxes and the greens so those are in great shape right now. Greens were rolling nice and pretty fast particularly downhill. Some of the greens are really tricky. Undulations make them difficult to read.
Bunkers were in good shape. Not fluffy but not real hard either.
I did see the note from Head Pro Scott Flowers about the upcoming improvements to be made to the course. Looks like a 2 year plan and can’t wait to see the improvements kick in. It will be worth the wait. Although challenging, it is a fun layout. It had been a while since I have played EG but will make it a point to come back soon.
