Last round of 2017 was Saturday 12/30 at MD with an early AM tee time. Was originally supposed to be paired with a threesome at 750am but I got there early and starter said I could go if I was ready. So with that I was off the first tee at 730am sharp. It was cold but thankfully not cold enough for any frost delays. Playing through a couple of groups on the front and then having the rest of the course to myself, I was able to cruise around in 2 hours and still had time to spare for the breakfast menu at the Butterfly Grill (highly recommended!).

I’m happy to report that the course is back to its usual great conditions. All aspects were good to great with the highlight being the greens which have fully recovered and are winter fast! Beware anything from above the hole. They held full shots quite well but chips and pitches tended to run out a bit. Fairways aren’t quite as firm as you’d expect but still provide some roll out while providing a nice soft cushion underneath to hit from. Wasn’t in any bunkers but they looked fine. Rough was lush and consistent but not very penal. Not much else to add compared to previous reviews. Service at all levels was great. Not sure if there was a beverage cart today since I was done by 930 lol. Always recommended if you’re in the area!
