I also played in the GK Guru event with JohnnyGK, SR129 and Leef2020 and had a great time. Turned out to be rather warm and beautiful day so all conditions were perfect. Also had a nice conversation after our round with Leef2020 as he taught me a lot on club making. Learned a lot.

Got there a bit late and wanted to get to the range and Landon, our host gave me keys to the cart, directions to the range and a complimentary small bucket. Very nice of him to do so. Beautiful setting and really nice club house and restaurant.

I found this course pretty challenging. A good mixture of long and short par 4’s. I found the par 3’s really challenging. Elevation changes and/or hitting over water made you really concentrate on trying to hit a good shot. The pin placement on #7 was incredibly difficult adding to fact that there is a bunker smack in the middle of the green. Fairways were nice. Some tight/thin lies but overall good. Bunkers were real soft and fluffy which is great to see considering most courses have very hard sand or even hard pan. Greens were pretty soft but rolled real nice. Good iron shots held very well. Not sure if that’s always the case here as I bet they will make ‘em pretty fast once the rain stops. Some greens were tough to read with some of the undulations.

All in all a very enjoyable day. Pace of Play was about 4.5 hours. Great for what used to be a private course at one time. Hope to get out here again one day.

Played in the GK Guru event today at GC of Ca. with Jerry64, Zgolfman and DConnally at 11:30. Grass range had good coverage with nice fluffy grass. The landscaping around the clubhouse was as good as I’ve seen it, giving a very nice first impression. Pro shop was friendly and efficient, had me quickly out to the driving range. Practice bunker was still a little muddy and not as nice as those on the course. Practice green was medium pace and similar to course conditions. Tees were lush and level. Fairways had good coverage of tightly mowed mostly Bermuda with many well-repaired divots in the approach areas. Sand was good and hats off to the ground crew for getting them in such nice shape. The greens were in good shape, held shots well, but it was a nice sunny day and the Poa was in full flower by 2:00. They were medium speed and a little spongy by the time we finished. Rough was uneven and a bit thin. They have a really nice bar and a couple craft beers but could use a couple more locals, but got to keep the regulars happy. I do enjoy this course. It has a nice variety of holes that present different challenges than the usual courses I play. The par 5s all play a little differently and even the easy par 4s can give you a number. Had a great time with our group. Couldn’t seem to keep out of Bob’s putting line, but I noticed he stopped making putts after I stopped tramping through his line.

Teed off just before Noon in a Greenskeeper outing. First time playing here in over a year. Forgot how challenging this course is, make sure you play the proper tees for your skill level.

Friendly and helpful service in the Pro shop and with the starter.

The course survived the recent rain storms without any major damage that I could see.

Greens: a little bumpy but to be expect at the end of the day. Speed was medium. Greens were holding.

Fairways: very good for the winter season, great to see green fairways and a majority of divots filled. Not a lot of wet spots on the fairways.

Traps: plenty of sand but some traps not raked by thoughtless golfers.

Rough: some bare spots but not a major problem.

Great practice area!

This course is a must play especially if you can get a special rate!
