Since I had not played here since 1992, I had almost zero recollection of the course! I did not remember it as being all that great, but I must admit I found the course to be better than I expected. Played the Ranch/Vineyard from the blue tees. Enjoyed the course, but as a “walker” it would be a tough hike to try to huff it around this course.
Greens rolled well, not fast, but enough speed to make you think. Did not find the greens all that tough. Fairways were nice as was the rough. Really liked the sand in the green-side bunkers, (when they were raked)
Staff was great, except that we had many holes with no pin. (The mower would finish cutting, then not replace the flag sticks) I called the pro shop and was told they were going to spray. I advised them that was fine, but I was tried to hitting to greens with no flag sticks, and I would be happy to take the pins out and leave them next to the greens if needed, but it was not fair to have no pins. The last 7 holes, that was rectified.
Nice course – pricey and a bit far from home, but it was fun and look forward to returning sooner than another 25 years
