Played this course 2/17/17. Found a deal for $30 at 3 PM. I played as a two-some and hoped to cruise through the course in 2-2 1/2 hours. This was not to be as the course was backed up. They had groups packed together like sardines. I don’t know if the pace of play is always like this, or if it was because there was a large group of players from Iceland who were just finishing up an event.
There is no starter after about 2:30, which didn’t help matters much either. The course is a traditional parkland style course with wide fairways, and accommodating rough areas, not the typical desert-punitive-rock found elsewhere. I had never visited the course, so I did not see it pre-renovation. I enjoy these traditional courses because they suit my meager golf abilities, and don’t penalize me for rolling the ball along the ground, or hitting errant shots left and right.
The course conditions were fair, about what I would expect for a muni, or budget option. The sole knock on the course was the sand, which was non-existent. It was just hard pack. There was no getting a club into the sand and under a ball.
I saw the beverage cart once in the round. Due to time constraints, the pace of play, and the setting sun, I only got through 12 holes. The weather was windy and superb. All in all, an enjoyable round.
