Rode the Blues (6467/71.5/130) on a GN “Hot Deal” with Hillary in 3.5 hours. The weather was clear, breezy and in the mid 90’s.

First time I had played here in almost 5 years. Most holes are lined on both sides with nice track homes. Tight in places layout that offers a good variety of holes. More than average amount of sand and water features adds to the difficulty.

The tees were excellent, lush and nicely maintained.

The fairways were mostly lush and many were near immaculate. A few were thinner and showing signs of the recent heat wave.

The rough is a mixture of grasses and 95% is maintained low. Not very penal in most places except for the designated ornamental patches of wild grass that they grow high that is an almost sure lost ball.

The sand traps were near perfect. Nice, thick, excellent quality white sand.

The back nine greens were very good, firm and medium fast. The front had several greens that were browned and not in as good of shape.

Troon facility, complementary balls on the all grass driving range comes with your daily fee. This is a good course, everything about it is above average, the layout, the condition, the customer service etc. However, it just does not stand out in an area that has many excellent courses within 10-15 miles.
