I'm going to make a little disclaimer here. I'm reviewing this based a daily fee municipal golf course.

3rd off this morning and we finished in about 3 hours 50 minutes. The group in front of us let us play thru on 11 and thank god because we finished at least 2 holes ahead of them.

I was a little disappointed in the greens. You can still see the punched holes from early April and I was expecting to be a little smoother than what they actually were. They are running a little quicker than normal but I had a few wobbly putts.

Fairways are good. There are some spots that they just can't seem to get right. Like where they installed the drainage on 1 still doesn't seem to grow right. Some unrepaired divot damage but generally they are cut well and provide a decent roll on well struck drives.

I made a comment to one of the guys in our group on 1 that the rough wasn't bad at all. BUT there are some pretty thick areas here. Generally the back 9 rough appeared to be thicker than the front 9 rough. The rough also seemed to be different grass. The grass seems to have buds on the end of them and made for finding some balls a little more difficult.

I've been critical of the bunkers here in the past because there was too much sand it seemed. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore as I thought the bunkers had the right amount now. FYI there are no rakes at this point so some bunkers had been maintained and there are others that need some attention.

If you expecting US Open conditions the course is just not there yet which is quite surprising honestly. My memory may not be what it used to be but I remember the Open last time in 08 and the course was in much better condition one month ahead of the tournament. The course is scheduled to shut down the first week of June so hopefully they will be able to fine tune everything because I am really looking forward to watching it this year. I'm playing again at the end of the month so I really hope there is some improvement here.

Did another double header here yesterday. This time the greens had small holes punched but I do not believe that they had any impact on the green and I would imagine these would probably be completely healed in a week. I only make this comment because this is more aesthetic. The pace posted was an 11 but I don't know what that means. We were first off in the morning round and the greens were wet and slow from the watering. We finally passed the guys watering the greens on hole 10 and the pace was a little quicker.

Fairways and rough still have a lot of spots that are not good and my understanding is that there was a fungus that got into parts of the course. I think these areas probably won't get back to normal until the fall when they can devote time of overseed again and treat the infected areas.

Bunkers and tees boxes were great though. I really like the depth of sand in the bunkers, not too soft and not too hard. The markers on the tee boxes were pretty wide so there was ample places to tee it up. Even the par 3s didn't have that much wear and tear on them.

Course is scheduled to shut down June 4 (I believe) which is not that far away. Condition wise I'd probably hold off until the fall but if you are ok with atypical conditions the layout is still a great test of golf and certainly some of the best staff I've encountered.

Played yesterday on a rather odd day. Started off cool and then warmed up quite a bit and cooled off later in the round with the wind picking up. Had some sprinkles driving up and seemed to be threatening around the area but never a drop.

I would say from tee up to the green the course is in great shape. Fairways were great. They were mowed to a perfect level for me. I thought they provided good roll on drives. Divot damage and bare patches here and there but I don't think anyone in our group had a bad lie all day. One of the things I like about Goose is that there are holes where you can hit multiple shots off the tee. I think that helps to minimize the divot damage to the fairways because balls are not collecting in the same area.

Rough isn't overly penalizing and while I did miss the fairway my penalties came from being behind trees not necessarily the lie in the rough. Given the vast size of the course there are going to be more bare areas in the rough.

Tee boxes were really nice. Level and appropriately cut. Played the back tee boxes and even on the par 3s I don't remember too much divot damage. Plenty of areas to tee the ball up.

Since I've been coming here the greens are probably in the worst shape I've seen. They were way too bumpy and wobbly for my liking. I did notice what I think is a fungus on the greens. I assume it is a fungus but it looks like yellow water stains on them. I'm not sure if these issues are related or not.

As I said earlier everything but the greens is really nice right now and too bad they are punching next week. However I would hold off on playing until after maintenance because of the greens. I am one that can overlook imperfections in the fairways/rough but rather have nice greens to putt on. I don't believe the Goose is there right now but I will definitely be back. This is a solid course with a great staff.

Decided to walk on at the last minute and put my name in at about 6:30 and teed off at 7:30 so the wait wasn't bad at all.

Greens were a little bumpy and seemed a little slower than normal to me. A few unrepaired ball marks here and there. Greens held shots well however I could not adjust to the speed. I carried chips to release and they'd check or try and get something back to the hole and it would run out. Just never got that dialed in.

Bunkers need to be raked. I was in 3 and 2 I had to move since they were in footprints. Some looked like they hadn't been touched in a few days.

Rough was non-existant. No penalty for being in there. The rough is really just navigating trees.

Fairways are ok as well. I did find a divot and I usually expect to find one when playing here given the amount of play this course gets.

Tee boxes are ok as well. Par 3 boxes are a little more beaten up and the number 9 tee box (on the right hand side) was a little unlevel.

One of the guys in our group said the greens were being punched in a couple of week but I forgot to confirm that with the course. I'd probably hold off on playing until after the maintenance but then again it's only $49 to walk so that is hard to beat.

Pulled a doubleheader yesterday. First round was a little less than 4 hours and the second round was a little over 4 hours. It was kind of an odd day. It was warmer at 8 am than it was at 2 pm. A cold front started moving in on our second 18 and got pretty windy and cold. Funny thing is we played the same tees and the wind made our second 18 play like a completely different course.

Greens were pretty good. I don't remember seeing many unrepaired ball marks but maybe a couple. Wind start impacting putts too on greens. On 17 and 18 I had putts that thank goodness I finally accounted for the wind. I thought the greens were receptive to shots and held them well. There are a few patchy areas on the edges of the greens but it didn't impact any of my putts.

Tees boxes were very nice. Nicely mowed and a few divots but nothing major. Every tee box looked pretty consistent too.

Bunkers were good. All that I noticed seemed to have been raked. Ample sand in the bunkers that you can give it a good thump.

Fairways were so so. There are a lot of bare areas out there but there are also a lot of very good areas too. The bare areas didn't bother me at all. Good roll in the fairways.

Staff was outstanding as always. That is everyone from the proshop to the kitchen to the maintenance workers.

A couple of side notes:
-I usually go thru Julian to get there but the snow forced me another route which there was some snow but the roads were fine. It started snowing again on the way back so the drive was quite scenic.
-Those that know me know that I may have over indulged in sweets, I mean you don't look like me without doing so. That cookie that I got at the end of the round might have been the best cookie I've ever had.

Played in the mens club event today teeing off at 8 and finishing right at 12 so pace was great. Overall I'm really happy with the rain from yesterday and this morning that the course drained excellently. I'm glad my tax dollars were put to good use in installing the new drainage system.

I thought the greens were a little slow and could be bumpy at times. This was expected with the rain. I don't think there was time to roll and/or cut the greens. I really could never adjust to the speed as I was short all day long. As it dries out a little I'd imagine they be pretty nice to put on. A few ball marks here and there but nothing outrageous.

Fairways were decent. Again you wouldn't really know we had rain but the turf was pretty good. Some divots here and there.

We played under lift clean and place so everything in the rough was fluffed up. The rough isn't nearly as bad as the Farmers. Plenty playable out of the rough, some balls did sit down making it a little dicey. It probably won't get out of hand until after the maintenance the first week of April.

No issues with tee boxes. Sand is still an issue though. Saw several balls plug in the bunkers in my group alone. If it wasn't for COVID and lift clean and place I'd be pretty pissed if I had to play any of those shots.

Enjoyable, just wished I played a little better. Probably worth a look as a resident. I'd probably like to see a little bit better greens before I shell out 2 bills as a non-resident.

Teed off early this morning at a little after 6. There was another group in front of us and as we were on the tee a 2some pulled up behind us so we let them go ahead. Pace was awesome. As we were on the 18th tee box the group behind us was on the 15th tee box.

Fairways are pretty dormant so there was a lot of roll if you found them. In fact I nearly drove the 1st green. They were firm but not so firm that your club would bounce on them. You could still take divots. On a side note the up hill par 5 13th hole no the back no longer has that waste area. I'm not sure that was anyone's previous review.

Greens were posted at 10.5 which I have no idea what that means but they seemed pretty slow for my liking. Quite a bit a slope but with the speed I don't think there were any bad places to miss.

We played the black tees and I thought they were all moved up quite a bit. There was a Future Champions tourney that started as we made the turn and as we finished the range and putting green was packed with kids. It's been a while since I've seen that many people together.

Bunkers were ok. Some needed to be raked and some were raked so it was a crap shoot. Pretty good sand to get out of too.

Price might be a little above my liking but it's a good change of pace course and certainly a good test of golf.

First round yesterday for 2021 and was the 3rd group out, we were only a 2some so the pace was excellent. We didn't push the guys in front of us and the group behind us was well behind that we really took out time and enjoyed the course. Course winds thru a housing complex so there are many areas marked as ob but I still think you can be aggressive or conservative and still score well. We walked and there is some elevation and walks between holes but I thought it was a pretty easy walk. I looked at my phone after the round and I walked 6.5 miles. Course is not overly long about 6800 from the back tees.

I have to be honest but these are some of the best greens I've putted on. Quite possibly some of the fastest greens I putted on. Really picked up pace as the greens dried out from the morning dew. Greens are really smooth too, it's nice to see that golfers take care and repair ball marks. Had a 15ft eagle putt and I had to lag that bad boy and still had a 4 footer comebacker.

My understanding is they did a fairway replacement last year so the fairways were a still a little firm but still fine to hit from. On a course like this balls tend to collect in certain areas so there is some divots in these areas. I was in 2 and one was filled in and the other was partially filled. I did think for the most part golfers did fill the divots with the sand bottles provided.

Rough doesn't really exist and gets a little suspect with some patchy/bare spots. When I got offline it was more about negotiating trees rather than rough.

Sand was good. I was in a couple of bunkers and all were raked and really consistent. I didn't see any (fairway or greenside) that hadn't been maintained.

I thought the staff was outstanding and the facilities are a tad dated but I'm not there for that. Range today was on the mats but there is grass which looks to be recovering from maintenance. Practice green is indicative of the actual greens. If you get an opportunity I'd recommend giving it a shot.

Played here a couple of times over the past couple of weeks and the conditions are pretty consistent with my last review. Just a couple of updates is the rough seems to be in maintenance mode in that it’s not growing wildly but being kept up. Don’t get me wrong it is still long, thick and you might lose a ball in it but at least I see mowers out there cutting down some. I’m rating the bunkers at a 1 until I see some changes. I’ve written about this before but my last round was the final straw. I hit into the bunker on 8 and it took 4 of us to find it. I kid you not the only thing you could see was the ball the size of a dime. It’s just ridiculous and stupid. As far as pace goes it was anywhere between 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 hour rounds. Did get paired with some guys who played at 9ish and said their round was 5 1/2 hours long.

Played in the outing on Thursday and the pace was great, I believe we finished right at 4 hours. Pretty much agree with everyone else. Goose is in really good condition right now and should be included in your rotation. Phenomenal practice facility that must be used if you play here. Customer service is always some of the best I have come across, never had a bad experience here.

The greens are good. There were some bumpiness but generally putts rolled well. Fairways were great to hit from. A little on the soft side so not too much roll but they were cut nicely. I didn’t think the rough was too penal but could get a little sticky in spots. I wasn’t in a bunker but the one I noticed on 9 was pretty hard panned after watching a couple of the guys in our group hit out of. I did notice some other bunkers that were freshly raked.

Wind was a little sneaky towards the end. On 18 I had 152 and I hit a 165 club and still came up 20yds short. This was probably the mildest conditions I can remember playing and it’s still a sneaky tough course. I throughly enjoy the layout of the course, the conditions are always great and customer service outstanding. These are the reasons I’ll continue to make the drive up and play here.

On a side note anyone know what year we are in with the 100 year construction project on the 15? I swear every time I drive up there it’s a new traffic pattern....

First off yesterday and finished around 4 hours. Should have been quicker but the marina layer kept coming and going making it difficult to know exactly where your ball went.

Greens are ok. I'd prefer they get rolled and cut a little more. Some still seemed to show the effect of the punching so that may be a factor in why they aren't as good as they should be. Pretty receptive holding shots.

Fairways could use some cutting and a little soft. Not much roll in some spots.

Rough is still in overseeding mode. Not nearly as penalizing as the north but its growing and there are some thick spots. You can get lucky and get a good lie. I actually did hit a 3 wood out of it because I had a really nice lie.

Tee boxes are back at their normal spots and pretty good. I don't remember any unlevel or bad spots other than the areas they put the tees during the maintenance.

I don't know if I have done this before but I rated the sand a 1. I'm just really tired of these bunkers. Yesterday I had 4 plugged lies and I know you're thinking yeah that is an exaggeration or don't hit it there. My response would be I wish I were exaggerating and do you think I'm really trying to put in the bunker? I really don't get it. There is too much sand in spots and then you'll bottom out in others. I'm baffled. I did put a picture on the app of my last one.

Had the opportunity to play here this past week and I must say Sal’s last review is still pretty spot on.

Greens were some of the fastest greens that I can remember playing on. After some putts on the practice green I thought for certain there was a 4 putt in my future. While I didn’t 4 putt I certainly didn’t make many. I think I was over reading because of the speed. Nothing super crazy in undulation but they do have some slope.

Fairways were nice to hit from. There are some tight holes so accuracy is certainly key here. Not necessarily a course for bombers. Water does come into play on quite a few holes. Probably one of the tougher collections of par 3s I’ve played.

Rough did have some gnarly Bermuda that was a little tricky at times. But mostly the rough is hazard areas and if you get in there there is no finding that ball.

Tee boxes were nice. Some looked to have been resodded recently but it didn’t impact play.

A few odd hole designs for my taste but the course was in fabulous shape.
