Walked the Blues (6083/69.6/116) in 4H with Vince in breezy conditions in the 50’s. $32 to walk, tough walking course with all the hills. We occasionally waited on the walking 2some in front of us but things moved well overall.

You do not expect a hilly course less than a mile from the beach. This layout would remind you much more of a mountain course than a beach course. Not tight, the tree lined fairways are constantly up down hills, some severely up/down.

The tees were mostly decent, mowed down and well maintained.

Both the fairways and rough had good coverage. More winter thin than lush, but they both played decently.

There are only a few sand traps on the course. Was not in any, but they looked decent walking by, few foot prints.

The smallish greens putted nice. Medium fast, smooth and held approach shots well. No large tiers or mounds, these greens are old school… but there are few straight putts and anything above the hole and you are in trouble on numerous greens. Really liked the greens, saw the lines well.

The par 71 layout is a plus. Three par 5’s, four par 3’s, with all the par 3’s playing downhill, so the yardages are deceptive. Some doglegs, a couple of blind tees shots. The area around the greens is mowed down like a links course, so everything from a putter to a lob wedge may be a viable option from 15 yards off most greens. Customer service was good, checked in and right out to the 1st tee. No drink cart, Marshall out patrolling but just seemed to glance on his way by. I would definitely play here again, very fun course. Recommended.
