Played 4-26 as a single. Tee time was 1:45 but the front was way backed up so they let me off the back. Not a soul in sight until I got to 16. POP was right over 3 hours as a single. Weather was nice, a little breezy at times but very enjoyable for Bakersfield.

Played the black tees and there is always plenty of grass and level spots to hit from. Fairways are in good shape, nice tight lies throughout. Rough is thick in some areas and thin in others. Hit a wayward shot into the long long grass that lines the outer rough and good luck finding your ball. The bunkers, as always are poor at best. With how high some of the lips are it’s nearly impossible to get your ball out without skulling it over the green.

The greens are really coming in nicely. They are rolling pure, still a bit slow but smooth. There are still plenty of people who don’t find it necessary to fix their divots on the green but for the most part, every green is in good shape. In fact, the greens were almost hard. Not a lot of spin to be had in the later portion of the day, so it was a nice change of pace from the soft greens I’m used to playing out there.
