Played here Saturday with a 12:30 TeeOff.com “Deal” time. I’d wanted to play here for a long time and recently found a day they were allowing TeeOff promo codes, so I used a 25% off code to pay around $32. When I arrived, they didn’t have my reservation, but I showed them the confirmation email and one of the guys said sometimes the TeeOff.com reservations don’t show up in their computers. They radio’d over to the starter and ended up getting me right out, actually a few minutes ahead of my time. Very friendly staff all around. I was paired with 3 others and POP was sorta slow but luckily got moving just in time for us to finish right after the beautiful sunset. Total around 4:30.
Conditions are pretty good. The greens were good but were maybe the low point. They were lush, medium speed and a little bumpy. I’m sure they are better in the mornings, but they were showing lots of ball marks and minor flaws in the afternoon. They were very soft; full shots stopped right where they landed. Fairways were mostly very nice, a little thin in a some spots. Rough was also pretty lush and not very penal. Blue tee boxes were good. The bunker sand was very nice…definitely above average, which I appreciated.
This was my first time ever playing here. I enjoyed the course quite a bit. There’s tons of water that comes into play. Maybe the only faults are the surrounding city streets encroaching in spots and a lack of elevation changes. I played terribly, so I’d like to get back out there to redeem myself.
