Out this afternoon 4/2/2018 walking the Blues with buddies Mack and Brian joined by a nice single John. POP 4 hrs. Weather was epic scoring weather–other than a strong breeze the first 3 holes the remaining 15 holes were postcard–mid 60’s with hardly any wind. Paid $22.00 walking–super deal. Nice staff in clubhouse let us go 10 minutes early at 2:20pm.

The fairways are making a comeback. The last couple times I have played here they were very dry. Today I saw a lot more green than in previous rounds. Sure they contain some different tuffs of grass and the fairways are not super lush but they are getting into their green spring state. This course historically has great fairways from April usually through August. Current rating is a 6/10.

The greens were in good shape–maybe a 10.5 on the stimp. Downhillers still need to be touched with precision. Not a ton of ball marks and rolling medium to quick speed. They hold high irons and chips with spin nicely. Rated 7.5/10.

I thought the tees were the highlight of the course. Super lush and mostly level. In very good shape–rated 8/10.

Greenside rough super green and lush and in great shape. Rated 8/10.

The poorest part of the course remains the rough just outside many of the fairways. Its very dry and hardpan in most areas. Rated 4.5/10.

With the fairways starting to grow in nicely and the current shape of the tees and greens I would recommend this course to anyone.

Great challenging layout that is a blast to play.
