Rode the Blues (6121/67.7/115) for $23 with Bill in 3H mid day. The weather was partly cloudy and in the mid 90’s.
There are no other golf courses within about 25 miles in any direction of Hawk’s Landing, so I am sure it is mostly locals who play here. The course is much greener today than the pictures posted on GK from 2015.
The layout is a 12 hole course where you play one of the 6’s twice to get in 18. I played the front twice, which = Par 71. If you play the shorter back twice it would = par 70. Fairly wide open with a good mixture of holes.
The tees were mostly lush, level with minimal unfixed divots.
The fairways were okay, about 50/50 lush/thin with a few browned out areas.
The rough was mostly thin but had decent coverage. The rough around the greens was mowed low, making for lots of low options on chipping.
The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick, deep, soft sand.
Not alot of undulation on the large, raised bent green complexes. No large tiers or huge breaks. The greens were smooth and medium speed, they putted well.
The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. No Marshall or drink cart, this is a no frills course. Basic carts, no GPS. Range had mats, decent putting green. Fun course, recommended if you are in the area.
