Walked the blues with my buddy Mack yesterday 12/17/16 on a cold high 50’s tee off start a little earlier than our scheduled 12:03pm tee time. We paid $36.00 which is their standard twilight time which starts at 12pm. The course was pretty empty considering the colder weather and a nice brisk maybe 10mph breeze at times. Our POP was only 3 hours 25 minutes walking waiting a little on the back nine.

The greens are in very good shape. Soft on high irons and shots with spin while running firm on all other shots. Putting semi-decently with fairly pure surfaces. Not to many ballmarks today but could see evidence of some softer footprints on some common pin placement areas. Overall would rate the greens a 8/10.

The fairways have pretty much gone dormant brown and even with the colder air produced some roll out and long drives. You still get a decent lie at present time on the fairways. These fairways always start to perk up and get better in the spring. Overall rating on the fairways 6/10.

Most tees were lush, fairly level and in good shape. Some tees could use some more sand mix on the par 3’s. Overall rating the tees 7/10.

Was in one greenside bunker on #18 that was firmer than normal due to the overnight rains the day(s) prior.

The greenside rough and the rough lining the fairways was lush in spots up to 2 inches and depending on where you were could be more thin or more lush than usual.

Great staff, great practice areas, great back nine and great prices–especially if you can snag a online time. This is my buddy Mack’s home course–we had a great time!

Played 11-29-16 early morning joined three other singles and played in about 3 1/2 hours with a little bit of waiting on the front side. Tee boxes were in good shape, mostly level, semi-lush and cut tight. Fairways are starting to turn a little dormant but still offer good lies but a little thin. Rough was in good shape 2-3 inches and lush. Was in one bunker that had a good layer of nice soft sand. Greens were in very nice shape, best I have seen them in a while. They were a little soft but rolling smooth and fast with very few divot marks. Always a fun course to play with great costumer service.

Why Did We Expand the Regions?

It’s simple. has been growing.  We expanded the number of regions because golfers like you have reported about golf course conditions in more places you play.  In short golfers come to us if they want informative, relevant golf course reviews and it’s all due to your, our GK Community’s, diligence.  You let us know your experiences and well if we hear about it everyone else does too.

Why so Many Regions?

Golf is an experience and every experience is unique.  Different golf courses offer different experiences.  What we look for in golf course reviews offers a little insight into every golf course we play.  Not just one point of view but many, and by providing many different points of view you get a clearer picture of what each golf course has to offer.  To that end we felt it necessary to provide regions with their own highlighted golf course.  Local players can enjoy the fact there is a great facility they can play just around their corner.  Golfers looking to experience new golf courses can play these and experience first-hand these unique golf experiences. Put simply, we allow not just your high-end. daily fee courses to shine but the local municipal as well.  They all deserve a fair shot and they all deserve to shine.
