Played 12/21 for $19 on a GN discounted rate, which included a small bucket of balls Course let me out 45 minutes early to play with a two-some, very happy they did. Great conditions, mild and sunny, no wind at all.
This course is a destination year after year for Snowbirds. Never been paired with anyone locally in the wintertime, and this was no exception. Tee boxes were in good shape, and very, very wide areas to choose from on most holes. Course is mostly flat except around the greens, and the raised areas can add 1/2 to a full club on many shots. There are six Par 3s, all but one of which measure over 180 yards, and today all were playing at the blue flag, which added an extra 10-12 yards to the shots. The Par 3s can definitely eat up your score in a hurry if you're not careful. The Par 4s are pretty redundant and generally long, but the five Par 5s are all reachable for better hitters (at least in the summer time). Oddly, thanks the layout, I never used my 8,9 or PW on any hole; I either had a hybrid/fairway wood into the hole, or was left with a little lob wedge.
Bunkers ranged from fair to very good, some still water from a recent rain. Greens were quick but not crazy. Customer service was excellent today.

Played on a $30 email special 12/14. Paired up with a father/son who come out here every year. Never played this course in the winter before; the biggest difference between now and summer conditions is the rough, and the volume of it. In the summer, balls it common for balls to have an extra 15-20 yards of roll, and the rough is rarely more than 1" higher than the fairway. Today, rough in places was as high as 6", and commonly 4" and very wet and sticky due to recent precipitation. definitely made the course play longer and harder than usual. My partners agreed with me that they had never seen grass this high at Mountain Brook before.
The other major change were the bunkers, the subject of an ongoing reclamation project by the course. I'm happy to say that all the green side bunkers now boast nice fluffy sand, making actually bunker shots a reality for the first time in years on this course. Fairway bunkers still closely resemble rocky hard pan conditions, but one thing at a time. PoP was a little over 4 hours, to be expected with the time of year.

Quick review for December 2014: course is in good winter shape. Tee Boxes are a bit worn in areas, but the fairways are very green and the greens are in good shape. Bunkers are in their usual mediocre condition, with little loose sand and ostly hard pack in most of them. Biggest issue may be the snowbirds: It took one full hour to play the first three holes. Thankfully, most of the foursomes ahead only played 9 holes, so the course really opened up on the back nine.
