Well, it’s May and my golf season is back into form. My usual suspect for the season opening is this course because on yesterday May 7th, I was able to book a tee time before twilight for only $30. Played as a single and played 18 holes in 3 hours and 50 minutes. Passed a few people thanks to the marshal Al and was able to see the cart girl 3 times.
This course was in the best shape I’ve seen it in for years. The first green usually plagued by hideous bare spots was no longer dry. Actually lush and rolled true. All the greens were like this except the 18th (rather large bare spot but they were working on it as I noticed). The fairways and neighboring rough (about 15 or so feet of the fairways) were lush. I didn’t come upon a bad lie all day. The tee boxes were great (I played from the tips and noticed some other tee boxes were recovering but those were the par 3’s) and level, great softness to insert your tee into.
I was incredibly impressed with the conditions, really allowed the beauty to shine for this great layout of a course. Truly a hidden gem with the price value you receive in regards to location, views, and layout.
A note as I did play a few holes with different groups throughout the day and their one nagging complaint was “This course is so hard to drive on!” Well of course pal! It’s layout challenges you to hit irons and woods off the tee to set up your second shot into the green. Most par 5’s are get-able, no Par 3 is over powering and no par 4 requires an extremely long second shot. So, hit your favorite long iron to your favorite wedge distance and get to sharpening those 12 footers for birdie!
