Played here Saturday evening for $39. Had played the Faldo side twice thus far this summer. Credit to the starters they had steered me to Faldo indicating it’s in the better shape. I chose to mix it up and play the Palmer side. Not anywhere close to the conditions on the other side.

It’s obvious they are keeping Faldo in more resort condition for the guests (Scenically more enticing course) This side has been let go to summer conditions. Definitely good summer conditions though.

Greens were good which is the most important thing. A little dried out, with some dried out ball-marks. But great medium/fast speed. Good roll. Bunkers were fine. Consistent little thicker sand. Tee boxes were not the best. Fair amount of divots and even dead areas in some tees. Fairways mostly great, but there were ground under repair areas around a few greens and some dead areas in others. Visually looked poor, but good conditions for summer outside the dead areas.

The course layout is great. Great mix of holes and flow to the course. Numbers 9 and 17 and fun holes. It’s a great layout in decent shape for summer.
