Played 6/22 at 9:40am as a twosome with my friend. Much better experience here compared to my last visit in early May, however some funny things happened. Check-in was straightforward and I loaded into a solo cart. The GPS units have been taken out of the carts. Perhaps they attract too many "touches" during COVID pandemic, so they were taken out? No mention of this in the pro-shop and the same $95 rate as a month ago. Social distancing in effect on the driving range leaves less hitting stalls available. While warming up, my range balls were swiped by a cart kid who was apparently picking up buckets while I was exchanging clubs at my nearby cart. I had to flag him down and he dumped out half my balls at the wrong range mat. The same starter from a month ago let the other two-some who was joining us, tee off in front of us and didn't tell them they were supposed to play with us. Tees are fine. Fairways have good coverage. There is definition between fairways and rough, but some rough areas are still thin. No rakes in bunkers, but sand is in good shape. Greens are in very good shape, rolling true and holding well struck shots. We saw the beverage cart twice on the back-9. Pace of play was slightly slower since we had to wait for the two-some in front of us (and we were sandwiched between foursomes).

I played 6/8 at 6:40am with another single they paired me with. Check-in was simple straightforward. Tees were mostly good, a couple par 3s were placed in areas full of divots. Fairways are completely yellow/brown and very thin right now. Playability is fine, as the ball sat up and could be compressed. Rough is almost non-existant. Rough seemed to be mowed to same height as fairways. I didn't land it any bunkers, but most of them have a ton of deep footprints since there are no rakes and I guess the grounds crew can't maintain them? Greens are the best aspect of this course right now. They're smooth and lush green. Collars and approach areas are also more lush than the rest of the course. Pace of play was just under 4 hours, but would have been faster since we were behind a few foursomes. I'll return next year.

Played Monday, 5/11 at 6:45am for the first time in almost 10 weeks since the pandemic started. Checking in with pro-shop and cart guys were straightforward and easy. Going straight to the 1st tee felt weird but I understand the range & putting greens are closed. The starter appeared to not know what's going on, but whatever. My foursome all rode our own carts. Let me say this right away, Black Gold is not worth $95 in it's current condition. I feel bad for people who pay more on weekends. Instead of normal pins, they use 12" tall wire flags which cannot be lasered from the fairway. The GPS system displayed the wrong hole location on every green on the front nine, so I stopped checking on the back side. All elevated greens or uphill approach shots require you to guess where the pin might be. Tees were level & had mostly good coverage. Fairways were mowed short and had very good coverage. Rough was absolutely terrible. Little or no definition from fairway, and numerous areas are dirt/pebbles. I realize bunkers have no rakes, so I was neutral on my ratings there. Greens are smooth, slightly slower than normal due to a fine layer of sand on the surface. I play here all the time since I live down the street, and I expected much more after the rain we had a couple weeks ago and due to the closer from the pandemic. I'm definitely waiting to return here until conditions improve, or they lower the rates (not likely). POP was 3:40 since my foursome had virtually no one in front of us.

Played Wed. 1/1 at 7:42 with a couple friends and a single who was paired with us. POP was right at 4 hours with two riders & two walkers. The course is in very good shape, even with the cold mornings. Tees were all level and had good coverage. Fairways were great too. Greens were firm, but smooth and rolled true. I only hit one fairway bunker, but sand was very good. We always enjoy Goose Creek and will be back sometime in 2020.

I played Black Gold this morning 12/1 at 9am after my buddy found an internet promotion for $79/ea. Arrival and check-in was easy. Warm-up on the all grass range (today) was nice too. Teed off exactly at 9am. I don't play BG that often and I consider it a treat. The course is in pretty good shape. The tees are level, but thin. The fairways have good coverage and have drained well after all of the rain from the past few days. The rough is thin and probably dormant? The greens are the best part of the course right now. Smooth and lush, with a few divots. The two green side bunkers I hit today had nice, soft sand, although my playing partners hit a few flooded bunkers. For the location and price BG normally commands, I think it should be in better shape, but perhaps I have higher expectations.

Played the Babe 1/26 at 6:45am from the blue tees. We were lucky there was minimal wind on the front which disappeared completely after a few holes. The greens are the one highlight right now because the rest of the course isn't great. Tee boxes were mostly nice, a few weren't level. Fairways are completely hit or miss because there is a ton of long clumpy grass in many fairways trying to grow thru the bermuda. The fairways are the lowlight of the course right now. I was in one green side bunker which had nice sand, while my playing partners were in several others bunkers and moved stones away from their lies. This was only the second time I played the Babe, and it reminded me how much more I like the Ike.

Played 11/23 at 7:20 and saw the upgraded driving-range and construction on the new wedding/events hall. Before today, previously played here in March of 2018 and had pretty similar conditions. The tee boxes (blue) were almost all shaggy (couldn't mow after Wednesday night/Thursday morning rain?), fairways were decent, but spotty, greens were smooth and soft. The two bunkers I hit were okay. Hard to describe, but there was very inconsistent coverage in the rough, especially near the greens & bunkers. Slightly disappointing. We played here because we didn't feel like driving further out towards Beaumont from OC, but after two round in 2018, we'll wait for better conditions for a few years. Pace of play was not an issue....for being one of the supposed busiest days of the golf calendar, the course was noticeably quiet in the early morning during our warm up and when we made the turn.

Second course on my buddy's wedding trip found us playing Wailea Emerald on 11/1 at 7:20am in perfect 85 degree weather. Yes this course is more scenic compared to the Gold course a couple days prior, but we agreed this course isn't as great as the Gold was. Great tees, fairways, and sand here, and faster greens compared to the Gold. This course was much more target golf with multiple medium length par 4s which took driver out of our hands. If I ever go back to Maui, I'd chose the Gold Course to play again.

Epic trip to Hawaii for my buddy's wedding and we played Wailea Gold on 10/30 at 12:15pm. Check-in was easy and we teed off on #10 after a short warm up. Every tee box was perfect, the rough was consistent and lush, and the two traps I hit were in great shape. Even before it started sprinkling on #16, the greens were quite slow. They looked great, and appeared to be in great shape....just slow. This course is more of a shotmakers course, allowing for more freedom off the tee compared to the Emerald Course. Great views of the ocean on many holes.

I snuck out and played the back nine on Wednesday, 7/4 at 7:05am. Pro shop told me the GPS wasn't working in the carts (new carts arriving in two weeks), and then told me to use the sprinkler head yardages. Except, there isn't one yardage marker on the any of the sprinkler heads. Course is just okay. Multiple holes on the back nine look like each other. Fairways were okay. Rough is almost nonexistent. The edge of the one bunker I hit was fluffy, but then the middle of the same bunker was thin. Greens were slow. POP was 1:40 minutes after waiting for the two-some in front of me figured out they teed off on the wrong nine. I needed this reminder why I don't play here very often.

We got rained out last weekend, but got out yesterday morning knowing rain was in the forecast. Teed-off a few minutes ahead of our 7:03 time and POP was 4 hrs 35 mins, which I know is slow for how empty the course was (we did let one group play through on the front nine b/c one of our players was struggling). Greens were soft (light sprinkle fell whole round) and rolled pretty true. The semi-dormant fairways weren't great, very thin with clumpy, spots of new growth. Rough was patchy too and easy to hit out of. Every tee box was great, no trouble there. The downhill holes (#1, #10, #16, #18) allow for massive drives off the tee due to extra roll-out. No beverage cart (rain), but pro shop, starter, & marshal were all nice. We'll go back again in a few years.

A few days late with this review, but we played Goose on Friday 11/24 at 8:24am. Check-in is always a breeze here and the pro-shop guys are great. All grass range was perfect and not very busy that early in the morning. Teed-off on time and the first few fairways were just slightly long but we saw the mowers later in the round. Great coverage and visible difference between the lush rough. Tees were great, and the new tees being built on #3, 4, 8, 11, 17 are in different stages of readiness. Greens were great. I didn't hit any bunkers so I can't talk about those.... and actually had my best round ever at Goose. POP was right at 4 hours 30 minutes which is great for a busy day like Black Friday. We'll be back in 2018 for sure.
