Played the Blues (6432/70.4/125) twilight in 4H, 45M. POP very poor on a day the course was NOT overly busy. Matched up with Adam, Thomas & John. The weather was in the 70’s, bright, sunny and breezy.
SH is a fun, 35-36 par 71 layout with lakes coming into play on holes 4, 5, 14, 15 & 18. Medium difficulty course in above average condition @ good prices. Plenty of mature trees and rollings hills and to also keep things interesting.
The tees were lush with most divots already repaired.
The Kikuyu fairways were lush, well maintained & had good coverage.
The Kikuyu rough was semi lush and mowed down fairly close near the fairways. The farther away from the fairways there is more hardpan & wood chips/turf reduction areas.
The sand traps were decently maintained with a decent amount of medium to large grain brown sand.
The greens putted medium speed and were smooth/consistent from green to green. They were firm but still receptive to holding approach shots.
The customer service was excellent. I checked in and was sent to the 1st tee on schedule. 1 week after the city championship, this is about as good as it gets for SH. The rough was mowed down and the fairways & greens were as good as I have ever seen them here. Challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flat. No Marshall @ SH and no drink cart on weekdays. Nice snack shop on the turn with excellent burgers. For a municipal course, tough to beat.
