9/21 with gurus Lee Vince and David--what an enjoyable group--on a pleasant breezy afternoon with a comfortable 345 POP. Had not been here for a couple of years and am very favorably impressed with the upgrades. New white sand in all the bunkers and the practice area. Fine grains but nicely compacted and consistent through the course and well maintained and generally attended by the players.
Fairways are well watered but were somewhat inconsistent--quite green but thin in areas and some areas were a little shaggy--the other 80% was in good condition.
Tees had good cover and for the most were level.
Greens were very good firm but receptive for full shots--chips tended to run out rather quickly. Smooth rolling nicely at medium fast speeds. Generally large greens often with multi-levels and significant slope--danger lurks if you end up in the wrong quadrant which I discovered especially on the back 9.
This is a quality track that is well worth a road trip to play!!!
Staff is friendly and easy going.
Practice green had the course speed but with out the tiers. Nice grass driving range.
9/18 using teeoff $27 deal time on a busy 5 hour POP with pleasant weather and a gusty breeze for back 9 play. Fairways seemed patchy some really good areas but also lot of thin or variable length/variety of grass so lies were inconsistent. Rough was marginal some ares with enough sparse grass that would allow the ball to sit down to the dirt--some areas a little better. Tee boxes generally had good cover but a few were somewhat crowned.
Bunkers had a lot of deep sand--front 9 was newer and heavier providing a challenge--also requires lot of attention to keep groomed--back 9 had a better quality of sand and was more playable. Many were left with lots of footprints or were poorly raked.
Greens were quite soft and on the slow side. Multiple un-repaired ball marks on every hole.
Staff was friendly.
9/1could 3 off at 730 for POP of 31/2 on a nice morning. Fairways have good cover and cushion somewhat thin in fringe areas. Rough is found along most fairways and could present a bit of a challenge--some pretty thick and juicy areas closer to the greens.
Tees about 60/40 to the good side. Both bunkers I found have the new fine but heavy sand which presents a real challenge for me.
Greens medium fast receptive to full shots but quick with lot of roll out on chips--quite good overall.
9/11 early am rain leaving us with a delightfully humid round as the sun soon replaced the clouds and no refreshing breeze to make it better--still a great setting. Paired with a friendly but quite slow 2some for a nearly 4 1/2 round.
Course is preparing for maintenance. Fairways are getting plenty of water and are lush and healthy but littered with clippings not really affecting play just unsightly. Rough is fairly thick slowing the ball but playable. Tees ok. Sand is deep and heavy for the most part requiring better execution than I was able to perform.
Greens are very soft a little bumpy getting plenty of water before punching(9/18). # 5 has some serious issues with bare spots and damage.
Course should come out of maintenance in superb shape--looking forward to mid October.
9/8 pleasantly warm light breeze 3 3/4 POP--Fairways lush and rather long well watered and soft--rough about 2 inches and juicy. From observation bunkers looked to have good sand--especially the problem ones from the past appeared to have been filled with quality sand.
Greens were much slower than usual and quite soft as they are preparing to aerate 9/18.
7/19 using tee off $23 with POP at 3 1/2 on a nice coolish morning. Fairways had good cover but most had not been mowed yet today so they tended to be on the shaggy side with very little roll out. Rough 1-2 inches retarding the ball and often providing a challenge to escape.
Tees have ok cover but depending on the marker placement the lack of level can come into play. Some bunkers have good sand and some are thin with hardpan.
Greens were softer slower and more bumpy than usual.
Good customer service as always friendly and easy going.
played 6/29 but had some internet issues so very late with this--used teeoff deal time for $46. Course is more up country in the hills and jungle very lush with pretty constant elevation changes. Par 3s downhill nice visual with the entire green and hazards easy to see. Fairways mostly with good cover firm enough to give a little extra roll but really soft and cushiony providing good lies overall except that there are not many that are level being on all types of slopes. Primary rough was mercifully cut to 2-3 inches and left about 10 yards in width--beyond that 2 feet of Hawaiian gorse--but even the short rough could be penal depending on where the ball settled.
Traps looked ok by observation. tees level and in good shape. Greens smooth at medium speed with overall topography a major factor--holes with a lot of down hill slope leading to the green tended to continue the trend on the green.
Due to the hills gas carts are in use. Staff is very friendly easy gong and honest--someone from the group ahead of us had dropped a $100 bill at the starter who tracked down the careless and clumsy golfer to return his booty--no I am not talking about my self.
A very interesting layout scenic and cooler with less humidity and a real good value and test of skills.
6/21 using GSC $40 2some from the blacks--tees level with good cover some par 3s with the small boxes are pretty chewed up but most of the divots are filled. Bunkers are groomed but due to the watering most are pretty wet by observation--managed to stay out today, thankfully.
Fairways somewhat mixed there is really good grass for the most part, tightly mowed green and lush--some patches of thin or bare which again did not come into play so I had good lies everywhere in the fairway--also quite a few unfilled divots--a shame really considering how much water and effort is being put into upgrading the conditions.
There is ROUGH thick and deep 2-4 inches along the fairways and around the greens--punitive and demanding--beyond the rough and often between the tee and the fairway is the decomposed granite--best advise ever--stay in the fairway!!
Greens have gotten really good much smoother firm but receptive medium to medium fast and fairly consistent--often more slope than I was able to determine so getting the speed and recognizing the subtle breaks at the hole kept me confused most of the day.
Friendly staff--golfer oriented--under 3 1/2 POP even with a couple of searches involved and the kindness of a 4some who waited after finishing #5 to let us through(that was the 1st time we had to wait while they were on the green-so they were very thoughtful)
Scenic layout with some nice vistas--generally a good variety of holes though many of the par 3s are about the same yardage 160-170 but pin placement can definitely factor into shot election.
This course has adventure written into it--somewhat off the beaten path--plays a lot harder than the yardage indicates and can be downright frustrating with the blind shots and the need to locate and hit your intended target if you can see it(as if that would help)--keep it in play =fun-- don't=anguish. Some good deals available so worth trying.
6/20 with the gurus Johnny, Larry, Alex, and Vince on a hot afternoon--not busy so sent off as a 5some--fun grouping and very enjoyable golfing partners.
Fairways are still pretty green closely cropped but very tight blades giving good lies and ample cushion. Some areas of GUR conditions and re-sodding in process--does not affect play Rough is fairly short not very penal but more of an issue around the greens being longer and thicker.
Did not play out of any bunkers but by observation they looked ok. Tees level with good cover.
Greens looked slower than they played(but were slower than the practice green)still medium to medium fast--some being a little bumpy and on the softer side--caught a lot of edges just slight mis-reads and some early trouble judging speed mostly because of the slope. These greens are huge with some contours and irregular shape that allows for very interesting pin placements.
Grass driving range in fairly good condition but not as smooth as the fairways.
A very interesting layout with elevation changes, a good variety of holes, quite scenic and with the traps being visible the holes are nicely framed and the white sand provides a good contrast to the green colors.
Friendly easy going staff.
6/19 using GSC $79 2some-- with range balls-- from the blues on a warmish but pleasant am under 4 POP with a little waiting on the back 9 Fairways are still green with good cover--mostly firm for extra roll but still nice cushion providing good lies. Rough is mostly lush not long but thick enough to quickly stop the ball and in the thickest areas quite challenging to escape.
Tees level with good cover.
Bunkers were the weakest part of the course due to their inconsistency about half were groomed and dry the rest needed a good churn and a couple were quite damp and appeared not to have been groomed as the sand was flat where the water pooled. Sand quality was good just needed more attention.
Greens are in good shape smooth medium fast(a little slower than the practice green) but pretty consistent through the round--back 9 greens seem to have more slope and speed.
Drink cart came around twice. Grass driving range with fairway like conditions. Large practice green with separate chipping area and a bunker where I should have spent more practice time.
Friendly staff easy check in and helpful attentive starter.
Par 5s are on the short side but require accuracy--the 4s have good variety in shape and length--the 3s seem to be rather similar about the same distances and look. Still a good layout set in natural surroundings except for 10-13 overlooking the freeway--A good quality course and with the promotions a really good value for anything under $40.
6/14 using teeoff deal time $38 after 20% discount--had 1100 tee time but arrived early and Brent worked his magic and had us on the tee 20 min after arrival for a 4hr POP even following a slow 3some and a 2some with frequent waiting mainly because we did not scatter any shots--not that they were all pure but were easy to find and hit again.
Tees lush and level. Bunkers had ample sand but a couple were wet with heavy sand.
Greens had a splotchy look but were firm smooth rolled medium fast and consistently through the round.
Fairways are firm closely cut greenish fading to brownish--some had been punched a week or so ago and some are currently being de-thatched leaving small grooves--did not affect any of my lies but looked like it could have. Rough 1-2 inches playable but challenging.
Really friendly golfer oriented staff.
Course has a decent layout with an adequate mix of holes par 3s are all about the same length but pin placements keep them from being repetitious.
Currently they are offering a "Palm Card" promotion 6 rounds for $199 good for 12 months weekdays and $249 anytime--very good value.
6/9 $28 teeoff deal time with 20% discount on a sunny am from the blues 6500 71,9/133--right at 330 POP could have been faster if we did not need to look for those pesky off tract shots. Pro shop let us go right away as there was NO one playing--did have the option of using the range for $5(this is new)--decided to just go play. Found out on the 1st green that they had recently small hole punched and sanded--greens rolled pretty smoothly at a little under medium fast speed. Receptive and for the most part tended to keep chips from rolling out excessively.
Fairways had good cover for about 95%--a few areas looked to be a little thin and dry. Rough 1-2 inches enough to put a stop to forward momentum but not too penal to play from--longer and thicker near the greens.
Tees level but a little thin as far as coverage. Bunkers consistent with ample well maintained moderately coarse grained sand a little on the heavy side--able to get out but not get the necessary distance--it was not the sand it was me.
Friendly proshop staff. Course is a traditional design--front 9 mostly level with greens just slightly elevated--back is hilly and more scenic.
