Haven’t been out here in a while and love this course when it is being taken care of. Tee’d off at 1115am finishing up around 515pm for a 5 hour round on Saturday as a single joined up with another single and a twosome.
Many holes were backed up with the average waiting times on those holes being 10 minutes. Hole #4, 5 & 6, 7 on the front. Holes #10, 12, 14,17 Especially and 18.
Saw plenty of Ambassadors, the waterbassador as well as the cart girl a couple of times both Nines. Not sure what they could have done aside from joining players up instead of sending out twosomes. Towards the end of the round groups of twosomes were joining up to try and speed up the round.
The tee boxes were OK, some were very rough and hard or soft to put a tee in.
Fairways were rather nice with patches here and there. The exception being a few holes where you can see dirt. The rough wasn’t too bad where you could find rough. Some places the ball settled down into 2 inches of grass.
The greens were the highlight with the exception that they are about 90 percent healed from the “half” punching they took at the begining of the month.
They intend to punch the other “half” of all the greens at the end of this month or early November.
The greens were bumpy and slow for uphill putts, fast for downhill putts. Couldn’t get the speed of the greens all day.
The sand traps are great, nice fluffy sand, easy to hit out of well taken care of with new sand in d%mn near all the traps. At least the one’s I was in.
They are doing a great job at getting this course back into prime shape with the tools they have and the water restricions placed on every golf course.
End of November once the greens completely heal, I will be back.
