Rode the Blues (6313/70.6/129) as a single in a little more than 4 hours of twilight playing behind multiple foursomes. Weather conditions clear and breezy around 65.

The over seeded tees were lush/level and very nice to play from. Thumbs up to their divot repair team.

The over seeded fairways were lush and mostly excellent to play from.

The over seeded primary rough was mostly lush and mowed fairly low. Not overly penal.

The many waste bunkers are less maintained than the green-side traps and play firm. The green-side sand traps are very nicely maintained with fine, good quality sand. And for those unfamiliar with SilverRock, there are a lot of large traps here. I had 12, count em, twelve, green-side sand shots in 18 holes today.

One reason for that is that most of the very large greens are elevated and surrounded by 2-4 large traps. Greens here are nicely over seeded, they putted medium fast speed and were relatively smooth. They do a very good job here of putting some mixture into old pitch marks that keeps the greens smooth and rolling consistently, plus they seem to regenerate quicker than most courses. Some of the largest greens I play on, not unusual to have numerous 50-75′ putts in a round here, so lag putting is at a premium.

Customer Service always excellent here. Plenty of water stations on the course and they provide complementary bottled water in the cart that has good GPS and ports for electronics. Cart gal around several times today. Comp range balls are included as well. Fun layout in very nice condition. Recommended.
