Played a 2-man scramble Monster club tourney here on Wed., fun times. Course set up with super difficult pin positions and a few very strange tee locations, played blacks and beyond on most holes. Whoever set it up was very creative.
Conditions were accurate per the latest leef2020 review but his concern for getting the greens back into shape can be forgotten (at least for today), as they were well prepared, even, quick, and just about as good as Poa can get. A pleasure to putt on. Fairways starting to brown out a bit, rough still semi-deep and penal in some areas. Bunkers here are never very well maintained, I don’t know why this is so difficult for a higher end OC course.
Decent deals exist for twi-light or using the Creek Card, because the rack rate here is typical OC over-the-top. Still recommended.
