Played in a tourney Sunday, 8/4. The pace was not as bad as feared, 2:20 on the front then slowed down to 5 hours total. Our first groups were slowed down by the public play in front of them. Great service as usual. Some guys at the bar were having the Cowboy Breakfast that looked sinfully good.

The course was in nice shape. There some dry areas, fairway and rough, but overall pretty lush. Was in two bunkers and the sand was not deep but okay. The greens were the highlight. Not as fast as I have seen them here but still good speed and rolling nicely. The tee boxes were a mixed bag. About the only complaint I had on them was when I had to hit an iron off the tee the kikuyu grass was so thick that a partial tee barely got to the ground. The tourney played the white tees and some of them were pretty far up, especially #2, so hitting an iron was unusually viable here. Took quite a bit of teeth out of those holes.

I enjoyed the round and will be back.

Played early on Saturday, 7/13, getting right on as a single with three fun younger guys Mitch, Steve and John. The course was busy with full groups but we still played in a little over 4 hours.

The greens are as good or better than any time I have played here before. The practice green was still wet and fairly slow so it took some getting used to when we hit the greens on the course. Medium fast and rolling great. Pretty soft on approach shots. Easily the best part of the course.

The rest of the course was okay. The rough was cut down in most places but we found several balls that players had left there, including right on 13 where I found three balls before finding mine. The fairways were pretty good although with numerous drier spots where the lie as less lush. The tee boxes were good if pretty chewed up. Always had a good stance and level area though. Not in any sand traps but watching others hit out of them, they seemed in good shape.

Enjoyable round with good conditions. At $45.50 (based on recollection) to walk on a weekend. I'll be back.

Played very early this morning in about 4:15. The course is in nice shape. I like the way they have cut aprons around the green and have grown the rough up. The rough was definitely a factor in places. Fairways as nice as I have seen them. Not much roll considering how comparatively lush they are. The greens though are slower than normal. Medium at best. Multiple putts left short in my group and some putts that are usually extremely fast downhill were noticeably much slower. Overall, the course is in nice shape, I just wish the greens were cut or rolled to the speed they have been in the past.

Excellently run GK Event once again. Teed off right on time at about 1:20 pm, with the weather cooperating. Hot but not too hot with enough breeze to feel nice while less than a club at most. POP was good also at 4:20. The facilities were first rate. Nice clubhouse, helpful staff, good restaurant. The range area was small and the targets were few, but it was grass.

Apparently, there was a NCGA Amateur net qualifier that morning. The pin positions reflected that. Some tough blue positions, such as 15 and 18. Tough greens for that matter. I agree the course should be rated higher, at least as to slope. Some unforgiving greens and rough. The ball tended to roll and many times thought might have stopped short of a hazard to find that the ball had rolled much farther than I had expected. The fairways were nice though. Tight lies but nothing bare. The primary rough was not that much of a factor. Outside the grass was generally brutal. Had a couple of unexpected good lies but losing the ball was more usual.

I liked greens even though they were tough to read and double breaking putts were regular. Tough to get the speed right too. They were definitely interesting. Also, usually rolling up, links style, was an option (note Rob's 60-yard putt for an epic up and down) but getting the ball to stop in the correct level was very difficult. The bunkers were not so great. The fairway bunkers were rock hard with some dirt clods. The greenside ones had sand but the hitting surface was hit and miss. Had one lousy lie in a depression. No footprints though, which was nice to see. Respect the game.

It was a course where local knowledge was a premium. We were lucky to have Darren to let us know where to aim on the more confusing holes. Some very intimidating views from the tees but generally there were generous landing areas. I had fun and it seemed the others did also no matter what the course threw at us. Overall, a well designed course and a fun day.

Played Wilson early on Memorial Day. Waited about one half hour after getting on the waiting list before I was on the tee. Pretty empty considering it was a holiday, went out as a threesome followed by another and saw some threes and even a pair playing behind us. Maybe the rain the day before or because it was cool in the morning (48 degrees when I got there), but it turned into a spectacular day and was crowded when I finished. A tick under 4 hours for POP.

The course is in good shape. Overall good coverage on the fairways. The rough was cut pretty low but still a factor to hit out of. It was pretty lush Kikuyu in places. Was in one sand trap and had good sand but a playing partner in the same trap had almost no sand under his ball. The greens were soft and I had seen them faster. That said, they were pretty good at medium speed that picked up a little as the course dried out. Some bumps but not too bad. There were some long (as opposed to round) punches on some areas of a few greens but nothing that affected a putt.

Good customer service by the starter. Saw him come out of the shop to show a person the group the guy was playing with. Seemed to very competently handle both courses. Only complaint was the coffee shop did not open until 6:30 am. No coffee! Otherwise no complaints on a great morning on the course. And traffic was light on the way home. Can not ask for more from Wilson.

Played Saturday, April 27, early morning. Pace of play was only okay, but more on that later. We had six guys for two tee times, but apparently no waiting list as we went off as two threesomes.

The course is in good shape. Was worried about the greens but they are fully healed, although they were relatively slow. Rolled nice, just not with the usual pace. The rough is cut down. The fairways were full. I had to laugh when one of our players complained there was more sand than he was used to in the bunkers. If they cut the greens as usual, the course is going to be better than most in this area.

Now, on POP. We waited on every shot the first two holes, playing behind two foursomes that we could see. On the third hole, the par three, we joined up into a sixsome and played the round in 4.5 hours, still waiting on every shot except the two par 5s on the back. We had an open hole behind us from the 5th hole on. They caught us on 12, then we opened up that hole gap again. There was at least 1.5 holes open in front of the group two groups in front of us, as there was no one on the par 5 14 when they were in the fairway on 13 (we could see it standing waiting on the 12th tee). The group in front of us stayed about a half shot behind, only waiting on the par 3s. I would have been embarrassed if I were in a foursome (three riders) with a sixsome (all walking) waiting on our every shot. Final part of the rant, it is on the course that we never saw a marshal questioning why there was a sixsome playing early on Saturday or any time for that matter. Would have been nice to see one pushing the groups in front to keep up the pace. Not to mention on the fivesome behind us, all riding, that could not keep up.

Played Sunday in a tournament. Usual good experience with service throughout. Nice training area which I usually do not have time to take advantage of, but this time got to hit, chip and putt.

The course was in excellent shape. I was only in one bare spot in a fairway. There was some very faded white paint around at least part of it but I could not tell if the area I was in was part of what had been designated GUR. Otherwise had good lies throughout, if fairly tight around the greens. The rough was a factor but not tall enough to make it difficult to find balls.

The greens had been punched. They rolled much better than I expected at medium speed. Some bumps but I did not have any putts I missed that I could blame on the aeration. One note. The greens on the course were not as fast as the practice putting greens. I three putted the first two holes before I figured that out.

Pace of play was somewhere between 4.5 and 5 hours. Word was our first group was well behind and the ranger was asked to push them. When we spotted them near the end of the round they looked to be near on pace with the group in front of them, so it was probably the course that dictated the POP. There were quite a few people out there on a beautiful day.

First time on the Navy course. Some friends play here and have praised it so thought I would give it a try. Got out there early as a single and glad I did as I was just able to get on before the Lady's Club teed off about 7:45. Great rate at $30 walking and decent pace of play at about 4:20. Played with three retired military men (two former naval pilots) who were great to play with.

I liked the course. Enough variety to keep it interesting. Some tiered greens, plenty of sand and more water features than I expected (although a couple have been retired to waste areas without water). The fairways and rough had good cover. There were some tight lies near the greens but nothing unusual. The rough was fairly low cut and not overly penal. The sand was fine. I really liked the greens. Medium speed and appeared to roll true. Very fair.

Overall, I should have played here before. Good experience all around. One note. The distance from the Blue tees that I played is listed at over 6700 yards. I was hitting the driver well but either the ball rolls really well there or it is shorter than the listed distance. In my opinion.

Played in a small tournament on Sunday morning. Fairly slow round at 5 plus hours but not unexpected. Ate in the clubhouse beforehand and the service was great.

The course was not bad. The fairways were generally okay if thin at times. Had a couple of bare lies both otherwise decent. The first fairway looks like it does not drain well and was the softest in the round. Tight lies around the greens. Some areas around the collars that were bare. The sand was hit and miss. There was not much sand in the one bunker I was in and there were complaints from a playing partner at least once. The tees were generally okay except #6 par three with not much grass in the hitting area. It needs work. The rough was generally cut down but with the recent rains there were multiple areas that had not been mown and it was difficult to find balls there.

The greens were very nice. Not as fast as the putting green, but rolled at a decent pace and I did not notice any bumps. They were the highlight of the course.

I always enjoy playing here and Sunday was no exception. Nice layout in good enough shape. People that work there seem to care about what they do. Friendly staff in the bar/restaurant. I'll be back.

Played here on Saturday, 2/9, in Team Play. it was pouring rain on the way to the course and raining steadily when we got there. Nonetheless, we were told we were playing. The putting green was virtually unputtable (top corner allowed some putts) and the driving range was closed until we teed off. It stopped raining on number 2 or 3 and had pretty good weather the rest of the round. it ended up being a 5 hour round as it was cart path only and there was quite a bit of searching for balls.

The good - The greens were really fast and rolled great, both when wet and after drying out. The sand was great also (much better than this time last year) although compacted from the rain.

The okay - The fairways were for the most part okay with pretty good hitting surfaces. They have not been able to mow and in some parts it was tough to tell where the rough ended and the fairway began. The rough was pretty low and not a factor although there was some really thick junk in areas, hence the searching. It was tough to find balls in those areas. The tee boxes were a mixed bag with some sloping but I was always able to find a flat area.

The bad - The 14th and 15th fairways were so bad that they had a marshal out there helping people find balls on 15 and directing them on 14. Roughly 70-80 percent of the fairway on 14 was roped off and had standing water throughout, which is amazing considering how sloped it is. All of 15's fairway was roped off up to near the green. My teammate lost his ball in an area where it had to have plugged so deep it was gone. I could feel the ground shifting under my feet as we looked for his ball. The fairway was not mowed, needless to say.

Great service, especially in the coffee shop. I'll come back when it dries out.

Played in what was supposed to be a tournament but became unofficial when too many people cancelled because of forecast rain. The course was great in working with us under the circumstances and getting out those that wanted to play. And it did rain, at times, which really did not affect the course until the last hole when the downpour quickly turned the fairway into a quagmire and the green into a pond. Cart path only (I walked), 5.5 hour round.

The fairways were the worst I have seen them. I play here at least once a year and I have never had a negative opinion of the fairways. For whatever reasons, the grass was sparse in places, many places. Light rough was not a factor. Good sand in the bunkers.

The greens were great. Quite fast with tricky pin positions.

The 19th hole here is great, which we enjoyed with the club member who had a hole in one on number 7. Very nice.

Played Wednesday, January 2. Not much to add to the last review except that in addition to being a little bumpy, the greens were very firm. No check on chip shots that I saw and I was playing with two sub-5 handicappers. Spectacular weather, albeit cold, and course conditions were very good. It was quite green. Interesting that there is a sand base at the driving range but the course has a tougher dirt base.

We had a forecaddie for the four of us, which is a less expensive option to the caddy experience. The bags were on carts (cart path only). He found balls, gave direction and distance, raked bunkers, and read putts. I think the greens are fairly difficult to read so that was valuable. The only birdie I made was a triple breaker, downhill putt that he read to perfection. Mark "Benjie" Benjamin. Highly recommended. You never know though. Another foursome in our group had a caddy who said he was legally blind and did not look for balls. Weird qualities in a forecaddie.
