Played May 20; using Underpar $66 two-some on a pleasant somewhat breezy am. Had 10:00 tee time but Don the jovial starter gave us the option of an early start so off at 9:20 joined by Linda an very enjoyable playing partner who even though she purported only playing for 2 1/2 years exhibited good athletic ability and a high golf IQ being very familiar with etiquette and overall awareness.

The Review

Golf Playing Conditions 5.97 GOOD
Golf Playing Conditions 5.97 GOOD

The course itself was in overall good condition, fairways quite lush, more on the soft side so limited roll but excellent lies. #9 has some mixed grasses so the potential exists for clumps to be a factor. A few unfilled divots here and there but not bad.

Rough mostly on the shorter side but with some areas very penal. Tees pretty much level with some a little thin but playable. Bunkers varied from full with nice compacted sand to thin coverage.

Greens are very healthy, on the soft side, smooth but having some grain to factor in rolling at medium speed. Topography has a great deal of influence on this course. Greens are most often fronted by swales of various sizes and with the kikouyu shots hit short stay short.

My Thoughts

The layout is “interesting” with many doglegs and some blind landing areas and multiple elevation changes.
POP about 415 with some waiting. Staff is friendly and easy going.
