Out early Friday AM at Rio Hondo, a walking four-ball.
Course in decent Fall condition right now, Bermuda turning colors but good lies everywhere even in the Kikuyu rough. A few Ground Under Repair (GUR) areas properly marked (good to see). Greens were a bit soft post aeration and a tad slower than I’ve seen in the past here, just need a good mow. We were rolling lot’s of putts just on the short side. They did hold approach shots like Velcro. I was in two Green-side bunkers which were raked and well maintained as was the Fairway bunker I played from on #3.
Can always count on the Rio Hondo for consistent greens and maintenance. Should play here more often. Not a difficult course but the mature, tree lined fairways can reek havoc if you’re not accurate off the tee. Pace of Play (PoP) was a few minutes shy of 4 hrs.
