Finally got to play some golf this last Sunday, as i have been nursing a fractured hand ... Joined some old friends at Woods Valley in Valley Center played a little scramble. One thing i always notice is how dry and hard packed the driving range is which always make me worried on course conditions. One thing to note is Valley Center area is under water restrictions and the range receives minimal water.
As we hit the course we notice the course is in much better shape. Tee boxes have decent coverage and are much softer than the range. The fairways have good coverage as well but can be a little dry. Some bare spots here and there but nothing that really disrupts your game. Sand traps were the only thing that I would give negative marks to. Most were wet and rock hard with not much actual sand left.
The highlight of the day would be the greens. Greens were lush and in fantastic shape. They felt soft and received shots but rolled at medium fast speed. Most put rolled true and steady with no bumps at all. This course is a fun layout and you must actually think out your shots. Gripping it and ripping it will get you in a lot of trouble. Overall I am always pleasantly surprised by Woods Valley and look forward to playing again.» Close
