Played on Wednesday, at 12:24pm, on a dry day, between the weather fronts. Course was in fairly good condition, and surprisingly dry. Carts were asked to follow the 90-degree rule. There were a few overly soft/wet spots on maybe 2-3 holes that were noticeable; including the landing area on #6. Roll was of course less than normal due to these soft-ish conditions.
Fairways were very green and some of the typical Ground Under Repair (GUR) areas have filled in over the last month or so when I last played. Greens were medium-fast, a little bumpy at times due to spike imprints, but not at all bad, and some greens were very smooth. They are continuing their work on refilling new sand in green-side bunkers, so we had a temporary green on #6 today. Last time out, they were working on #3 and #7 greens. The new sand is pretty nice, soft and fluffy. I enjoyed the beach three times. Tee boxes were a little hairy, but flat with very few soft areas.
Cart lady came around a few times on a cold day, should’ve asked if she had some coffee! Weather was nice when we started, but cooled off considerably so by about 4:00pm it was freezing. We finished in 4 hours, 50 minutes. We waited briefly on pretty much every tee and approach shot.
Until some of the flatter courses get a better chance to dry out, this track seems like a good choice to play, as so many holes have significant enough slope to help with the drainage from all the rain we’ve had over the last few weeks.
Oh, and I am happy to report that the silly tree in the middle of #10 fairway is no more!!!
