Played the Blues (6502/72.0/132) with GK Guru’s Gary & Bob. We teed off just after 7 am amid dew in brisk conditions and ended around 11:30 in bright sunshine. Absolutely beautiful day to play golf with great playing partners.
Really like the course layout that features rolling hills with few flat holes. Even though many holes are surrounded by homes up on the surrounding hills, none are close and do not really come into play or offer a distraction.
The tees were well maintained and generally lush. Level with most divots already properly maintained.
The fairways had been recently aerated and were more thin than lush but still had good coverage throughout. Quite playable.
The rough was about 50/50 lush/thin and had good coverage. Both the fairways and rough look like they are on the upswing.
The sand traps were well maintained bordering on excellent. Generous amount of good quality medium texture, dark brown sand.
The Poa annua greens are probably 85-90% recovered from their recent maintenance. They putted medium speed and were bumpy at times, but still decent overall. Firm but held well struck irons well.
This course would be a beast to walk as numerous tees are a long ways from the last green. No GPS on the carts, but the sprinklers were well marked. There are holes where you can grip it n rip it here, but there are others where conservative is the prudent play. Almost every hole is surrounded by lost ball bushes or ESA areas, so straying even a little can add penalties in bunches.
The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. No drink cart out on the course, but they have a beautiful clubhouse and places on the course you can call and order food/drink for the turn or after the round. Really nice touch was that they printed me a certificate to commemorate the hole in one I had on #16 last time I played here. Enjoyed the experience, definitely recommended.
Played in the GK outing bright and early in this cool Tuesday morning with Nick and Gary, very enjoyable day with these gentlemen!
Greens: front nine needs another 5-7 days to fully heal. Back nine is in the better condition – 95% healed
Fairways: firm with decent lies.
Rough: 1-3″ high, playable.
Traps: good condition.
Nice grass practice area!
Friendly staff in the Pro Shop. Looks like its best to play early during the week as it was not very busy today. Very challenging layout!
