I played here on May 16, 2017. The course was in OUTSTANDING condition. The tee boxes are firm and level, some of the par 3 tee boxes did have some big divots. The course was very lush and green, the are also firm, so a good low boring shot will run an additional 15-20 yards. The rough was a playable length, about 1″ – 1 1/2″. There are a lot of bunkers throughout the course, so you will land in at least one. The sand is firm packed, but you can slide your club threw the sand. The greens are rolling really fast. The firm greens and tightly mowed greens = FAST, but true rolling. There are a few hole with some multi-tiers. The practice facility is really nice. Huge practice putting area, nice short game area for pitching and chipping. Highly recommend course to play.

Played with the Gurus today and it was like a country club out there. No one around us except for some annoying foursome behind us (j/k). Pro shop was great, checked in and got my range token and they said we could basically go anytime we had our foursome ready.
Fairways are really great to hit from. I don’t recall seeing much in the way of divot damage. They were mowed nice and provided good rolls. I hit 11/13 of these fairways and it was a shame I could not capitalize more on this.
Don’t even ask me about the greens. I give up, I cannot read these to save my life. I thought the greens didn’t look fast but they roll more than you think. There were a few bumps but generally everything rolled pretty darn well. Most greens are not as firm when I played here last time but still releases a bit.
Wasn’t in any bunker so the others will have a chime in on those.
Tee boxes were great. 15 and 17 were way back too, brutal. Maybe some of the par 3 had some divots but there was ample spots to tee up.
Absolutely love this course and I think it’s a solid test of golf. I think it plays harder than the rating especially when that wind kicks up. If I lived closer this would be my home course and as long as Johnny lines up these outings here I will make the trip from SD.

Decided to hop in on the Guru fun at the last minute today and boy am I glad I did! The Goose is simply awesome right now, minus a couple of bunkers. There was a SCGA qualifier finishing up before we got started and the course was in fantastic overall shape.
Tees- Lush and level with minimal damage.
Fairways- Green, lush, cut tight and rolling out well while still providing ample cushion underneath. Great lies all day long.
Rough- Lush and thick but mostly manageable and not too penal.
Bunkers- Only downside today. Greenside #3 had great soft sand. Was in 3 others, all fairway and 2 out of the 3 had many dime sized rocks in them. Not to Goose’s standards
Greens- Slightly firm but held well struck shots. Rolling at med/fast speeds. Mostly smooth with some later afternoon Poa wobbles. But nothing major. Really good overall.
Customer service was spot on in the shop. Sign near starter shack said pin position 3 but we soon found out that wasn’t the case today due to the SCGA qualifier. I called the pro shop on 5 tee asking if they had pin sheets available and by the time we were putting out on 5 green, we had the sheets in our cart. Awesome! Speaking of which, some of those pins were brutal today. A couple paces from the edges or tucked in corners or right behind a trap!
POP was 3:50 and the only other people we saw on the course was the first group of gurus in front of us. Highly recommended as always! Thanks Johnny!
