3/9 with gurus allan_grant zgolfinman and leef2020 on a warm sunny pleasant day enjoying the setting and the company. Fairways tended to be on the dry and thin side with some bare areas marked GUR–lies were tight but acceptable–got a lot of extra roll which rewarded drives down the middle but punished those on the margins when on the hazard side. Some areas like #1 had many divots mostly not filled(bottles on the cart were nearly empty) No rough to speak of along fairways but some present closer to the greens.
Bunkers were mixed –fairway bunker on #3 was appropriately firm made for a good out–right green side bunker #8–new sand mostly a fried egg lie which I hit heavy to give me a flat 2nd attempt out to 3 feet -1 putt bogey-and green side #15 about 25 yds from the back pin laying on a light dusting of sand over HARD sandy dirt–used PW and tried to punch it–did ok just a little long caught it clean just a little long over the back fringe.
Tees pretty good overall adequate cover and mostly level,
Greens quite smooth rolled well at medium fast to fast speeds–large greens with a fair mount of slope which was not always easy to read as the contour and the prevailing topography had to be considered–undulations here are less pronounced but are also a factor.
The course is scenic set back in the canyons so there is a wild and remote feel–front 9 especially has a lot of up/down elevation changes with quite a few shots that have to carry the barrancas like #5 twice and the diabolical #16.
Staff was very friendly and welcoming-saw the beverage cart 5 times and marshals 3 times.  POP tad over 4 1/2–there’s enough trouble available for a least 1 member of the group to struggle–not us of course but the 4somes ahead. Had a good time with the guys today.

Been hearing a lot of good things about Eagle Glen lately and I’ve always loved the course so I snatched a GN hot deal for $27 and was out there at 11am today paired with another single and a twosome all great guys to play with. It was really crowded for a mid-week round so POP was not ideal at just a tick under 5 hours.

Disclaimer, I LOVE firm and fast courses so Eagle Glen has always been right in my wheelhouse. Perhaps the course has really greened up since last week but I found the fairways to be mostly green and pretty good cushion underneath. Perhaps around 85/15 green vs bare/hardpan areas. The rain has really brought the course back to life. Rough was not much of an issue and trending toward hardpan the further away you got from the fairways. Eagle Glen is in the process of adding new sand to the bunkers so the one I was in greeted me with a nice fried egg. Soft and fluffy in the bunkers with new sand. The older ones looked to be pretty firm and compacted. Tees are really lush and frankly, could use a mow. We started on #10 today as they had verticut the greens earlier in the morning but other than the visual effect, you would never know. As others have mentioned they are so nice right now! Fast, firm, lush, and basically perfect! If you hit a good putt, it’s going in. Now the one and only downside to all this rain…all the ESA areas on the hillsides would spit your ball out easily during the drought years. Not anymore! If your ball goes into one of these areas, it’s as good as gone!

Gurus, y’all will have a great time tomorrow and hopefully the POP will be better for you folks!

PSA for all GK’ers and especially the gurus tomorrow. DO NOT ENTER THE ESA AREAS! Saw a marshall today with 2 dead rattlesnakes in his cart. One was from #1 and the other I’m not sure. But apparently it’s wakey wakey time already for those bad boys so be careful!
