Played 5/27/19 2:30 pm. Got out in the afternoon for some twilight golf. Course is great shape over all. Fairway's green & lush. Great to hit from with good roll. Greens were very receptive. Ran decent at a medium pace. Had their typical afternoon bounciness to them, but overall in very good to great shape. There are some sick/dead patches around the edges. Traps in decent
shape. The only negative is their Tee boxes. Which is nothing new. Most are crowned and fairly chewed up. Today they had the added challenge of being very wooly. Not a problem with the long clubs, but made the irons play as if from the rough. Still my favorite course for twilight golf.

Played at 11:20 with some pals from work. Got off on time and while we were waiting Slim Shady put $5 down for the charity try to hit the tiny target in the water 30 yds away and he skipped one off the water into the hole and one a foursome amazing!
Tees: we played the whites and they were a bit chewed up but you could find a spot
Fairways: nice to hit from, a bit of roll
Rough: there isn't much here, just on the edges of play, the canyons are the hazards
Bunkers: the ones I was in were great, firm sand but pretty consistent
Greens: punched three weeks ago and are almost all the way back, slight bumps but rolled decently at medium speed
Customer service: great, I was asked at the desk if I was over 55 and got a discount (first time for me ever)of $5
Overall: fun yet challenging course in very good condition, greens should be totally back soon
Never played this course until last week and I wanted to put my $0.02 to hopefully make it easier for newer players to enjoy their round there.
1. It took our cart 3 holes for the GPS to work. How about placing yardage markers on the first, say 5 holes, to ensure you don't have to constantly lo...
This can be a difficult finishing hole. The best approach is from the right side of fairway, but be careful not to push it into the trees. Left side is a safer T shot, but then you might have to shoot over water to get to pin. Water is "In play" for longer hitters on left. Green has slight ridge running diagonal from water to opposite side. This can be used if pin is in back left. If in front go for it. Bunkers front left, front right and right rear along with grass knolls & hollows.
My personal favorite hole on the course. First timers are often confused on where the fairway is?? The large flat landing area below you is a great place to be. It doesn't seem to matter what club you use, if the ball goes over the slope they mostly end up in the same place near the trap in the rough. My club of choice is a 4 hybrid. Sometimes it rolls down to the collection area, but if it stays up, you will have a @130 yrd shot down hill to the green. Which can give you a little more stopping power to hold the green. The safe spot on the green is the front right corner and the ball will release to the back corner or right center. There is a slope 5 steps in on the left that can cause the ball to either funnel down to the back left corner or roll off the back of the green. If greens are firm beware ! I typically aim for the front quadrants of the green.
