7/29 using GSC $24 voucher 715 start 90 min front 9 then joined up with another 2-some on the back and slowed a little to finish in 3 1/2 total. Fairways have been getting more water and with the cool overcast mornings the lies and conditions were quite good. More rough also present and i some places was nasty. There are still some thin and bare areas and squirrel damage none of which came into play for me today also did not find any bunkers but they looked OK in passing. Tees generally had good cover–some areas on the Par 3’s had old divots but could find adequate area for the tee shot. Some tee box areas are not level but today for the most part not an issue today.
Greens were really good and consistent through the course rolled true–medium fast–contributing to a nice round of 24 putts with several made from 10 plus feet–only 1 birdie but several nice par saves. Stayed at 2 over thru 15 and started dreaming of shooting my age(73)–promptly went wide right all the way up to the rough on 15–tried a hero shot thru the trees–didn’t work out– ended up making a 20 footer for a triple. Still finished with a 78 –been a while since I saw this side of 80

After reading the prior review from Gary00, decided to get back to Shorecliffs. Gary’s review is spot on, with the greens being the best part of this course, although I must admit the overall condition has improved from the last time I played here. Caught a few poor lies in the fairways, but generally I have no real complaints.

This has never been one of my favorite courses, but the combination of the cost, the always friendly staff, relatively close to home, and truth is, there are several good holes on this course to offset some of the really bad ones. While I would not make a steady diet of this course, it’s a nice change.
