I played yesterday with a GolfNow Hot deal for $14. Personally, I wanted to walk a shorter course and I’ve only played there once since the renovation and was curious to see how things were progressing. I arrived about 30 minutes before my tee time – with a completely flat tire. This had to be attended to before playing. The girl in the pro-shop said it was no problem, the course was wide open so I could go out later. (The auto club had the tire changed in 20 minutes so I actually was able to start right on time.)

The new clubhouse looks great. It has a nice modern look with several TV screens, a bar with patio tables all around. I was surprised at how many people were hanging out there. It had a very happy vibe.

The course was fun. Many of the holes are pretty much the same as prior to the renovation, and a few are completely different. I think there used to be a lot more big trees on the front. There are some nice hills and a couple of holes with water. The tee boxes were level but pretty chewed up. Some fairways were very green with good coverage, others were very thin. The rough varied from patchy to long and lush. The greens were smooth and fast and the bunkers had decent sand.

I finished in 2 hours. It was very enjoyable and good short game practice.

I will definitely be back.
