Played Saturday 2/1 9:15
Must confess I don't usually pay 95 dollars for a winter round of golf. However, the sun was out, it was a special occasion and I decided to play with a friend who had a Creek card.
What a treat. The conditions were so MINT that I'm inclined to play there once a month instead of driving 45 mins to a cheap goat track.
Fairways had nice clean grass, only a few spots were thin (but still had grass). Bunkers were full on fine sand (Torrey Pines quality), and the greens were running medium fast, and barely blemish. The greenskeeper should be proud of the way it looks.
Last time I was out I saw a Golden Eagle in the middle of the fairway on Hole 4. The course Marshall says there's a family of them that feed off the lake on the par 3 Hole 5. The first time I saw it, I thought it was a Chicken.
Word of caution on Hole 17. When you park at the green, there is a family of squirrels that are highly trained bandits that will steal any food out of your cart. I was told by my playing partner that one squirrel chewed through a friends brand new golf bag to get at some chocolate.
Be warned. Maybe bring an offering for them and lay it out on the grass 10 yards from your cart. Or if you hate your playing partner, rub peanut butter on their bag. :-)
Service was A+. Wish I could find something to criticize but we even finished in 4 1/2 hours, with some sun on our faces. Life is good.» Close
