Played on one of the first sunny Saturdays. Course was in great shape with a couple wet spots but only a few. Bunkers in fantastic shape and fairways the same, great. The Greens were hard and fast and still held shots. Course has come through the rain in fantastic shape but they are punching the greens on Monday, so that is kind of a bummer.
Customer service at from check in to the cart girl to the starter and everyone in the clubhouse after was great. The issues with this course the last few times is the marshals. They are rude and out of control.
This course was managed by Kimpton but has switched to JC. There are 5 hotels in the immediate vicinity and the course is not easy. Kimpton managed it like a Resort course, as it should be, but JC is trying to squeeze every round they can out of the course. The group in front of us was a little slow and the marshals were all over them. We were waiting on the first 5 holes, but not for very long periods, but if you are in position, this will happen. The Marshals moved them ahead and we got to our second shots on the par 5 fifth hole, they were already in the fairway on 6 hitting their second shots. We are then informed on hole 6 that we are out of position. This happened again on the back on the 13th hole. They made the group in front move ahead and we were then informed we were out of position. Not nicely, like, hey guys we moved the group in front of you up so please try and get back into position with them, it was, they got moved so if you guys don't catch them now, you will be moved.
Sorry for the rant but the pin positions on Saturday were very hard and the greens really fast and if a course wants to move groups along, they really need to consider the course conditions with their attitudes of the marshals. I appreciate that the marshals were trying to keep play moving but at a certain point with this course there is only so much you can do.
I just hope JC doesn't screw this place up but it looks like it might be moving that way» Close
