Stopped by Thursday to have my clubs regripped and walking only allowed but decided to go out Friday and the course drained well, could not even hear water as you drove in the rough or the fairway. Only saw to areas roped off for water and never had to take a casual water drop. Greens were smooth and fast downhill and slow uphill. Weather was nice and the sky was clear. Just a nice day for golf.

Played Green River on Friday Dec 23rd. Had a 8:06 tee time and got out about 20 minutes early. Played from the blues. POP was good at 4:15. The course was very wet as I am sure all the courses have been. Hole #5 had a temporary green which we did not know about until we got to that hole. All of the tee boxes were good and level. The fairways were very wet, no roll out, so the course played allot longer because of the wetness. I was not in any bunkers either fairway or green side but my friend was and truthfully they did not look friendly. Glad I avoided them. The greens were very receptive, had to fix ball marks every hole. They rolled good but slow, it appeared they did not get mowed because of the weather.This is a course where if you are a little shorter off the tee, you will be hitting fairway woods for your 2nd shot or into the green on most of the holes. Number 10 was playing 460 yards par 4 and #16 (par 3) was playing 208 yards. Like I say course plays long and if you come here your long game will be tested. Had breakfast and lunch in the snack bar and service was great as usual.
I also like the layout. However, the last time I was there (which was at the of July), I was told by the starter that they are going to be shortening 17 and 18. The reason was, if you notice(d) those pipes that lie along side 17, those pipes have to go in the ground. Apparently, it was supposed to s...
Fun closing hole with an eagle and triple both in play. Going left off the tee is jail, but if you do challenge the corner, it'll shorten your approach by 25 yards. Just be sure you can fly it 250 otherwise you'll have nothing. Green is slightly elevated, but is quite receptive so don't be afraid of going right after the pin.
So this is a par 5 now, slight dogleg right and easily reachable when the wind is down (different story if you're into a gale force wind). Keep your approach right as the right side is much easier to get up and down than the left, regardless of pin position.
