Played in the SCGA outing on Monday, this is one of my favorites in SD and I try and take advantage any time there is a tournament or outing here.

When I looked at the putting green it didn't look fast but my first few putts rolled quite a bit past the hole. They are surprisingly quick and very smooth. This course always seems to have great greens. There are a few greens that have some ridges and slope and we were told everything slopes toward the 2nd green.

These are some of the deepest bunkers I've ever seen. There are some that you can't even see the flag from in there. All were raked nicely and ample sand too. I was in a few and one of those times I had to aim quite a bit away from the hole just to clear the bunker and have to catch a slope.

Fairways were good and nice to hit from. There are quite a few mounds which is surprising considering the area. You'd think it would be pretty flat but they do have some slope to them.

Took me a little while to get adjusted to the rough. It wasn't thick per se but man can a ball just sit down in this stuff. Also if you weren't in the fairway there were lots of trees. I had to hit a couple of shots over trees back to the fairway or punch under the tree to try and get it back in play.

Staff was outstanding. I always enjoy it out here and look forward to coming back.

Had an 8:20 tee time and teed off right on time. Over pace was less than 4 hours but felt longer because we were waiting quite a bit.

Played the tips and the tee boxes are in dire need of mowing. I mean this grass was incredibly high. Probably the length of the driver face. We would actually use our feet to trample down the grass. I’ve never seen tee box grass so high.

Fairways were great and nice to hit off from. Visually looks smaller but actually more room than it looks being the first time I played here. I’m not sure if it’s the back ground or evlevation changes but some shots I couldn’t figure out where I wanted to be. There are a few tee shots I’d like a redo on.

I saw some pretty gnarly rough which was more around the greens. Rough around the fairway was playable.

Greens were super slow and pretty bumpy. They need to be rolled and cut.

Staff was outstanding out here. I like the layout and #14 is one of the most scenic par 3 I have ever played. I would be back but the conditions would have to be a lot better for me to drive back up here.

Played last weekend, teeing off at 6:30 as a 3some. We were chasing a 3some and the foursome behind us was always a hole behind. It was kind of like a country club.

Greens are firm but not as firm as before. You still need to play for some roll but if the pin is back you’re best playing to the middle and letting it roll back. Pretty good pace on them. Probably the best part of the course right now.

I thought the fairways could use a mowing. It was a little wet and soft the morning I played and we even had some drizzle so maybe that’s why it wasn’t mowed but it looked like it hadn’t been mowed in a while.

Rough is pretty thick and getting thicker. It’s definitely affecting shots and you definitely need keep your eye on the ball.

Wasn’t in a bunker but the looked ok.

If they can get the fairway mowed everything would be great and worth it but I’d hold off if I was a non resident.

Played yesterday in the second guru group. I think our pace was a little over 4 1/2 hours.

Greens were in really good shape. I think the practice green was a little faster than the greens on the course so I left the first few short but the speed themselves are fine. The thing about the greens is hitting to the correct spot on the green. There are some big slopes out there that if you miss you can be looking at a 3 putt.

Fairways were really good too. I never found a bad lie in the fairway but Jerry did, his ball rolled right in a filled divot. It was like playing a bunker shot in the middle of the fairway.

Agree with Gary that the rough is hit or miss here but there is a lot of environmental areas if you stray too far offline. There are also some thicker areas out there and other spots where it didn't affect my shot decisions.

I was in a couple of bunkers 2 fairway and one greenside. The fairway bunkers were definitely firmer and the greenside was softer.

Tee boxes were scalped but I thought the back side tees were in better shape than the front. While they looked brown and appeared they would be hard there were actually not that hard at all. It's also a tee box so it didn't affect me at all.

Everyone here was really helpful here.

Played in the men's club today starting at 7. It was a long round. Took about 5 1/2 hours today. Saw a couple marshals but really didn't seen any openings or slow groups.

It is pretty rough out there and the place is in need of overseeding. However the greens are pretty fast but many ball marks. Saw quite a few balls hop after they were hit. I did like the greens though.

The rough is bare and cut down. Lots of dry areas and lots of bare areas. Even around the greens which makes chipping more difficult.

Fairway is just ok at best. Many divots out there.

Sand was actually really good.

I'd say even for a resident it would be hard to justify the greens fees with these conditions. I think after the fall maintenance things will be back to normal and will probably wait until then to be back myself. Also on a side note the north looks terrible. From what I could see it was completely brown.

Played in a tournament this morning which we played from the white tees. I was very surprised how wet the course was.

I knew half of the greens were punched and they do need more time to heal. Since this was a tournament all our putts were on the flag side and never had to put thru this. Greens are a decent speed but too many ball marks.

There were quite a few tee boxes that were muddy and the white makers were in this area. Some boxes needed to be mowed too.

Fairways are just ok. You'll find decent lies but that's about it.

The ball could sit down in the rough with the grass here. But since it was a tournament we were able to give ourselves better lies so it wasn't bad. Like most other courses there are thicker areas and some pretty bare areas.

Traps looked pretty rough. There was actually water in 2 or 3 and the sand is really dark. I have never seen sand that was this dark.

The range is actually pretty bad. This is another one that has the artificial turf where you stick your own tee in but you can because there is concrete under neath so you have to break a tee in half. That is if you can get the ball to balance on it. Also the balls should be replaced. Balls were muddy and dirt caked on it. Some were also cut like the mower went over them.

Customer service was great and the food was pretty decent after the round. I wouldn't go out of my way to play here right now.

Had a 12:45 time and since no one was out there they let me go with a group at 12:15. There was no one behind us all day. There was no one in front of us for the front 9 and we played that in about 1:45 but caught the groups in front of us on 10 and finished the round right at 3:45.

Greens are just ok. I thought they were a little worse this time than the last time I played here. Seemed slower and many more ball marks on the greens. I figured the afternoon round the greens would be much quicker but they actually seemed slower to me. On the back 9 greens there were a handful of greens where the mower that cut the greens was leaking oil so there were these oil tracks up and down the greens.

Fairways were really good. Good lies for the most part i did play off a semi brown/hardpan but the turf wasn't bad to hit from actually.

Rough was decent. I almost lost a ball because the rough was probably a little more than a ball deep but its kind of thin. My ball had rested down in a bare area but surrounded by grass so if I hadn't of almost stepped on it I probably wouldn't have found it. For the most part its pretty playable though.

I wasn't in a bunker but they looked decent.

Customer service was great considering they got me out earlier and because it was a little dry they had a couple of marshals out there making sure people had plenty of water.

All in all for the price its not bad. I think they are doing maintenance the 2nd week of October and it might be worth waiting. For the price and considering other courses are also performing maintenance I could be swayed either way right now.

Had to drop a coworker off at the airport yesterday and decided to try and get on. I called the starter and asked about the wait list, his response was "what wait list". I couldn't believe my ears and rushed over. I got there and a 2some just teed off and there wasn't anyone else scheduled to go for another 20 minutes. I teed off ny myself and crushed the first 7 holes in about an hour then everything came to a grinding halt from 8 on. Joined up with the 2some in front of me and we finished at 4:30 but played much slower. Pretty strong wind out there, probably 2 club difference.

Greens the best part of the course. Much faster than I thought, rolled my first couple well by. Generally good but this course gets a ton of play and so there are ball marks but honestly not as many as I anticipated.

Fairways are decent. A couple of areas are dried out but not what I consider in play. It does seem like with the maintenance they have focused the water on the greens and fairways.

Rough is well rough. Never thick to begin with and has dried out a bit and there are some dirt areas if you stray off the beaten path. However the rough on the right side of 12 is incredibly long. I'm not even sure you'd want to play it if you did find it.

Sand looks horrible but plays much better than it looks unless of course you find a footprint like I did.

On of the better value courses in the area but just be prepared for some slow rounds.

Played a couple times this week and overall conditions are good but you can tell the summer has taken its toll.

Greens are still great though. The pace is deceptive, more roll on them than they look. They are getting water on them so they are not that firm. I don't remember a significant amount of divots on them but there are always a few.

Fairways are good. You're starting to see more browning but overall the turf is good to hit from.

The rough is probably where I've seen the most change. It's starting to thin out and there are very dirt spots throughout.

No problem with the sand is typical. I had a couple of lies that the ball was half way below the surface. Not necessarily a fried egg but definitely not expect that kind of lie with this type of sand.

Played in a company tournament on Friday. It's probably been 10 years since I played here so i didn't remember much if anything. Range is that turf which I'm not sure why courses do this because you can't stick a tee the longer tees in there because one they don't stay up and too is the ball is teed too high.

Greens were ok at best. This place must get a lot of play because there were so many ball marks and old ones not just from the tournament. I remember one hole (5 I think) looked like a teenage boys face. There couldn't have been a putt anywhere on the green that you would have clean line. Greens on the slower side, even putts down hill I never thought were really fast.

Fairways were good. Some areas weren't but I would expect that and I thought over in general there was good coverage and the turf was good to hit from.

Rough isn't bad. It's pretty playable and wouldn't consider it a penalty for being in there.

Since this was a tournament I didn't play out of the sand but did retrieve a couple of balls out of them and they seemed firm in both the green side and fairway bunkers.

Staff was very nice and helpful. I had forgotten you get some views of the ocean and there are some pretty cool views of the surrounding areas. The course itself is just ok, it's not an overly long course and has a few funky holes (5 and 7 come to mind). Since this was a tournament I'm not sure what it is normally to play here but could be worth a look if this is your price range. The design of the course just doesn't suit me so I'm not sure I'd regularly play here.

Played a couple of times this week and this review summarizes those reviews. Played as a 2some both days and one time was 2nd off and the other 4th off. After passing a slow 4some in front of us both days it was pretty smooth sailing and finished both in 3 1/2 hours.

Course seems to be overwatering all over. The course is very green and I think this time last year it was pretty dry and brown. But with the watering there were some puddles out there and with the heat you could feel the humidity coming off the ground. I'm sure there is a reason why they are doing this but I think it is a little too much water.

Because there was so much water you could see footprints on the greens. You could also see ball marks. Some of my shots made some rather large marks and I just have to think no matter how well it is repaired there is still going to be an effect on the green. You could see marks on most greens. The pace was medium speed at best but all things considering still rolled decently.

Fairways are nice. Good coverage throughout the course. There are some areas marked in white as GUR.

That rough could be sticky thou. Even some lies I thought were good my club just got caught up in the kikuyu.

Great customer service through out the course from starter, marshal, and pro shop. Marshal comes around with ice water which was much needed.

Overall I don't think the conditions would ever be mistaken for a top end course but the conditions are good enough and the price offers a good value.

Supposed to tee off at 7:20 but got out 5 minutes earlier. Pace was really good, just waited on the par 3 but other than that we were about a hole behind the group in front of us and the group behind us wasn't even on the tee box by the time we walked off 18. Total was 4:15.

Really liked the greens. They rolled very well and while there was evidence of ball marks the greens still were very good. Never saw a ball get offline and the speed were deceptively faster than they looked.

Fairways were good generally. If you hit them you would generally have a good lie. I think there is more roll out there too. I seemed to be hitting them a little longer than I usually do. Don't remember any really bad areas but the summer and heat do seem to have effected parts of the course.

Rough is where it has been taken the most. I had a couple of hard pan lies. Generally good but just beware if you get off the beaten path.

Sand was pretty firm but it was still fine to hit from. It's just not fluffy white sand if that is what you are looking for.

Marshal and cart girl were out plenty of times.
