Played the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in 2.5H mid day as a single using Forelinx. I saw exactly 2 other groups playing total, almost like having your own private course. The weather was clear, fairly calm and around 105.
The Bermuda tees were lush and well maintained. Only a couple of par 3’s needed divot repair.
Both the Bermuda fairways and rough were lush, mowed down close with a few brown heat spots. Nicely maintained and good to play from.
The sand traps were in excellent condition with a generous amount of fine grain sand. These traps are tough to play from with large lips and potential long carries.
The Bermuda greens are still sub-par, recovering after a recent aerification. Decent amount of contour/slope on these large greens. They putted medium speed and were somewhat bumpy. They were firm but held shots well.
The customer service was excellent, especially from Nathan the clubhouse attendant. No drink cart out or Marshall today. SilverRock is easier after the redesign that shortened the back, but still a fun & pretty layout.
