Played yesterday in the AM. Course has gotten even better since my last review. IT IS GREEN. I don't think I saw one brown spot on the course. Tees were level and good to hit from. They are adding 5-6 new tee boxes throughout the course. Should make the course a little longer.
Fairways were lush green. They probably need a trim but with the recent rain they may be waiting. No brown spots and easy to hit from. The rough is getting tough. Not unfair tough but enough where you have to think about what you are doing. This is a nice change from most SD courses where you would be lucky to see grass taller than 1-inch.
Sand was great. Nice white sand has finally settled in. Not to fluffy but enough sand to take a good swing and not worry about breaking your wrist.
Greens had fully recovered and were nice and smooth. They are on the fast side and you need to pay attention.
The biggest issue I hear is the course is surrounded by houses, which is true but the conditions make up for it. I have been hearing the new owners are not worried about money and are trying hard to make it one of the nicest courses in SD. If you are in SD it is worth giving it a try.» Close
