Rode the Blues (6279/70.4/131) with Dconnally, Gary00 and Sbogey in 4H, 15M for two GK Cup matches today. The weather was sunny, breezy and around 80. Thanks to John for coordinating with Eagle Glen to set this up.

Like the hilly layout, lots of elevation changes and the large greens are challenging. Some forced carries and a few blind shots. Most holes have red hazards with lost ball bushes down both sides, but most are not overly tight. The front 9 is more target golf, the back 9 more wide open.

The Review

The tees were okay. Several needed divot repair and the back had several tees that looked to be maintained higher than the front?

The Bermuda fairways were sprayed green and generally played better than they look. Mostly winter thin with a few bare spots here and there that were marked Ground Under Repair (GUR.)

The mostly Bermuda rough was thinner than the fairways but still had adequate coverage. Mowed down, not overly penal.

The fairway traps were hard packed and good to play from except for an excessive amount of rocks. The green side sand traps were decently maintained with a much higher quality sand.

The poa annua greens on the front looked to have been recently verti-cut and seemed faster and firmer that the greens on the back IMO. The front was smoother and putted medium fast speed. The back greens spongier and more medium speed. They were fairly smooth and held well struck irons with some run out.

Final Thoughts

The customer service was very good from everyone encountered. Drink cart out and making numerous rounds. Plenty of water stations on the course. Dave and I grabbed a snack afterward, good service and the food was decent. GPS got stuck on hole 12, noticed my phone app also quit around the same place on the course, so maybe poor cell reception in that area? This would be a very challenging course to walk, combination of the hills and the sheer distance from some greens to the next tee.

Fun layout, recommended.
