Played BG today at 2:32pm, $44 rate via their website. Teed off with 3 other guys, losing one to a hand injury just a few holes in. POP was very good being so late in the day - 4hrs 15mins, a nice pace, just a few short waits on some tees, but never really pressing the lady 3some in front of us. We barely kept up, and the group behind were likewise, slightly behind our pace at the end.
About a month since punching the greens, they looked great, and putted mostly smooth at medium-fast pace and held shots very well. Seems like they've been rolled and are almost 100% healed - barely an issue for putting results.
Tees were thin in spots. Fairways and rough are mostly good, with very good lies in the fairways, and providing pretty good roll. Holes 2, 3, 6, 12, 13, 15 and 17 were either full or substantial CPO, a bit more than normal. Was in a few bunkers, and they were decent - my skills were not.
Staff, as always, were all very friendly from initial greeting in the pro-shop, to the starter, cart lady and end-of-round cart lads. Top-notch and add value to the experience here. Burgers smelled great from the 18th fairway! Lovely day, hope to return very soon.

Played this AM in a nice POP of 3 H. Easy check in (thank you Sergio) and customer service excellent at all levels (great food in Derricks). Greens aerated 3/18 & 19 but were in good shape all round, though a bit slow (speed increased - skosh- as it warmed up). All tee boxes just fine. No issues with any fairways, though they did have some CPO? Traps were all playable, though a few seemed like the sand needed to be loosened up? Fairways were all playable, with good roll and lies. Wind began picking up as we finished and this is not a course I like to play in the wind. I would certainly be willing to bet, greens will only get better over the next week to 10 days.
Fyi, the golf carts have GPS and "fly-over view" included. With this hole or any of the holes, the best tip that I can give you is, use the GPS and "course-flyover-veiw" provided in the golf carts that which will give you better idea of a particular hole on the course than any one tip from one of us.
Fun finishing hole. From the tee box, target left of the right fairway bunker. From there, lay up left for a good angle into the green. Water could come into play on 2nd shot if you go too far right. Green slopes toward the water for sure on the green here.
