Played on Thursday, 12/29, with John_T, his dad, and a buddy. We had a 9:22 tee time and found a 20 minute frost delay when we checked in, but was told they were almost all caught up. After some warming up at the matted range, we headed over to the starter, who sent us off #10 at 9:25, so no real delay.
I haven’t been on Mountain since early October and found the course is holding up fine to the winter weather. Last week’s rain may have helped too. Some tee boxes, particularly the par 3s, were a little beat up, but all mostly level and no real problem finding a spot to tee it up.
Fairways had great coverage, except for the 3 with water, the geese/coots have taken a toll on those, causing some thin/brown areas. Back 9 fairways get more sun and had more roll to them.
Rough was just enough to cause a little bit of problems, about 2 inches. We were able to avoid all but 2 bunkers, green side on the #4 Par 3 was very fluffy, and the 50 yard long bunker on #7 (which should really be a waste area), was thin and firm.
Greens were nice. Not real firm, rolled smooth and at a medium-fast speed. They were probably just a bit slower than they are in the summer.
Overall, a great time, minus a run-in I had with a guy in the behind group behind us. We finished in 4:20, with very little waiting. Marshall was out and defused the run-in. We paid $34 with the OB Card membership.
Insider’s Little Secret
On a side note, we played all 12 holes of the Par 3 Cloud 9 course afterwards and had an awesome time. If you ever make it to Angel Park, hit the short course with a group. It was a blast. Some really chewed up tee boxes, and a handful of greens were beat up from taking wedges all day, but still lots of fun. Longest hole today was about 165 yards, with most running 95-125.
