Walked the Blacks(73.4/133/7028) this afternoon 6/12/2017 joined by my buddy Mack and his buddy Brian. Our POP was just over 4 hrs waiting some on a 3 some ahead of us. Weather was mid 70’s, breezy on the front with the wind dying some on the back nine. Great staff checking us in. Looked like they got some newer mats on the driving range. Paid their standard twilight rate of $22.00 which starts after 2pm Monday through Thursday–what a deal.
I was most impressed with the fairways here. I need to check when I played here last but I can tell you that the fairways have improved since I have last played here. The back nine fairways seemed even more lush than the front fairways. Some nice cushion padding for irons. Rated 7/10.
The greens are just flat out awesome. They held higher irons with spin well but putted and chipped very quickly which is the perfect mix. Fixed my share of extra ballmarks while waiting for my playing partners to finish their putts. Rated the greens 8/10
The tees are super lush, green and mostly all level. A couple of tees looked almost PGA tour like. Rated 8.5/10.
The rough around the greens is nice and lush–rough around the fairways is a mixed bag–lush in spots, thin in spots and even hardpan dirt in spots–this would be the only area the course needs to improve. Greenside rough rated 8.5/10–fairway rough rated 6/10.
Was not in any greenside or fairway bunkers but they looked to be in good shape, firm and raked.
Tried the blacks today–very good test of golf especially on the back nine.
Love my home course–recommended for sure at this current time.
