Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) as a single in 3H mid day. Basically had the course to myself under partly cloudy skies and 108 degree temps.

Considering how many straight days the temp has been 100+ locally, this course is in phenomenal shape! Par 35-37=72 layout with five par 5’s and five par 3’s. The front is stacked with par 3’s, 4 of your first 8 holes are par 3’s. Generous landing areas and the difficulty factor would make it a good choice for players of all skill levels. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes, but moving up a tee(s) could negate that for shorter hitters.

The Bermuda tees were lush and well maintained.

The lush Bermuda fairways were some of the best fairways I have played from in awhile. Nice cushion, the ball sat up like it was on a tee.

The Bermuda rough is lush and just deep enough to make the ball sit down.

The sand traps were decently maintained with good quality sand.

The large Bermuda greens putted nice, medium speed and firm. More undulations on these greens than the sister Santa Rosa course.

The customer service was good but limited. No drink cart today. Not a course to walk, many holes are a long ways from the last tee. No GPS on the basic carts. Definitely recommended.
