Played this course as a single on Thursday, June 25th around 10:10am (last tee time on Tuesdays and Thursdays are 10:30am) for $45. Prepaid online to avoid social interaction, a result of COVID-19 and was greeted by the starter/bag drop guy. Range balls are included in the tee time so I made my way over to the practice tee. Upon arriving, you'll notice this course is tucked inside of a gated community and the course is situated along a large, looming clubhouse for residents and I believe there was even a waterpark/pool area next to the on course grille. Once you're at the practice range you'll also notice there's a members only section which I accidentally stumbled upon and then next to it there's the guest section. Fully stocked range, good amount of grass to hit from into grass greens and bunkers even to aim at. The backdrop of the range, and really the course, sets the day up for some amazing day dreaming.

Onto the course, this Kavanaugh design with Lehman Design group's redesign in 2016 led to some of the holes being re-routed. This doesn't seem to impact the conditions which were very, very pure. The temps recently in the valley have been easing into the 110s and the tee boxes, to the manicured fairways, always looming lush rough up to the greens were....green. Deep green. Not too much in the way of burn spots though it's summer and if you go after reading this I'm sure you may find a FEW. The greens were rolling quick and pure, a tough combo when the undulations on this course play games with 3 footers for par. The bunkers were soft green side and texturized perfectly in the fairways. The rough was lush with it growing to 3-5 inches in some spots but the main lateral hazards to avoid will be the desert landscaping which was maintained. The tee boxes were phenomenal.

This course definitely has the Lehman thumbprint on it design wise, off the tee box you often are presented with a bunker that poses a threat until you realize it's green side or a dogleg that's bound by a large hill/mound that can extend your drive's distance if you're lucky. Strategy wise this course was a blast absolutely. Nothing ridiculous in distance if you place yourself correctly and from the tips the 7200 doesn't actually feel THAT long (except for the 600+ yard par 5 16th). The greens are undulating and well protected when they are short holes, open and accepting of an array of shots when long and varying enough that you're never bored when putting. The fairways here are extremely forgiving and open (I only missed two fairways all day) which is a much needed breath of fresh air. And lastly, the views are amazing. Sure there are houses and communities popping up with construction noise audible all day long but the mountain vistas of nearby Four Peaks, McDowell Mountain , Superstition Mountain visible, I mean it was just photoshoot after photoshoot for new iPhone Wallpapers.

This course (according to my sources I talked to at the course) is attempting to go private however they are nowhere near the numbers to do so at present moment. As long as this course is available for public daily fees, I'd say the conditions it's in and views in comparison to the price is definitely worth it. Not to mention, it's within a short drive of some of the finest private courses in Scottsdale and from people I talked to who've played both, this course holds its own.

Played Longbow GC for the first time (I've eyed it for a LONG time) on Sunday June 14th for $40 off GolfNow as my usual foursome played around 9:10am. As you drive up to the Longbow complex (facilities and store plazas are becoming more and more present here) you're led down a road named after the course and the parking lot seems small but on a crowded Sunday it was packed and still had spots to park. The cart guys tended our bags at bag drop and placed our four bags on four separate, sanitized carts (COVID-19 precautions still in place) and we paid at the nearby, well equipped pro shop. The range was filled with ample grass and free slots to choose from however practice balls does not come included. The practice greens are quite indicative of the shape of the course and was a good spot to roll some putts in before our round. The cart guys gave us the keys to the carts at exactly our tee time and we were off.

The course was experiencing some summer conditions for sure. The tees I played from (green, one forward of tips) were filled with bare/burnt grass however I always was able to find a pleasing spot for my tee shot. The fairways were in okay condition, some spots were soggy, some were lush and others were bare; they were a crapshoot. The fairways/greens surroundings was mostly native desert sand/rocks but the rough was semi present and provided a different lie than the ideal positions...but they weren't penal and ball hiding at all. The greens were the highlight of the round, they were running at an 11 (course had informed us of that upon pulling up with a sign showing course conditions) and were pretty true all day. The actual sand bunkers had a nice consistency near greens but fairway bunkers had some overwatering issues. Overall the conditions were good, but for a course with Longbow's self proclaimed excellence I'd say there's room for improvement.

Strategy wise I'd place this amongst the tier of championship caliber. Off the tee it is challenging with doglegs and sightlines that obscure your ideal shot. You need to be able to shape your woods off the tee and miss in the correct spots around/on greens to shoot a score. It didn't feel like a long course because I hit irons off about half of the par 4s however the course does wear on you. I felt like we kept playing similar layout par 4 after par 4. I wouldn't say it was a boring round of golf at all, but it doesn't awaken a golf architect lover during any stretch of holes either. I feel the best way to describe the golf course design is that it wants to be an open, free feeling landscape but the surroundings restrict it...and I don't mean the construction buildings or plazas around the course. I mean the man made water hazards, the line of trees adjacent to some holes and desert landscaping prevents it to feel wide open like it's design intends to present it as.

My final takeaway is that while the GPS/Bluetooth enabled golf cart, free water bottles in cooler upon tee time and expansive practice facilities are all notable pluses, there isn't anything on the course that makes me...remember the round or thirst for a return immediately. I will play again however here's to hoping the conditions are better shortly.

Played Ocotillo (Gold 9 to Blue 9) for $50 on Friday June 5th around 8:06am on a beautiful mid-90's June summer day in AZ. Driving up to the course the parking spaces are ample for this 27 hole complex that hosts many other events than just golf. This Mickelson golf property (one of the few in AZ not private) has present staff at bag drop, two rangers and a good not great clubhouse. The driving range (not included in the tee time any longer) is a good size, I didn't use it but it looked in decent shape. There's two practice putting greens scattered in front of the bar/grille area and they're similar to the course's greens for a good intro pre-round.

Onto the course conditions; absent of rain the course was rather soaked throughout. I overheard there was a city championship coming here and they were definitely trying to green the course up. The tee boxes were lush and overgrown in some areas, no major divot damage except par 3's, with ample space to find grass however. The fairways were generally in good/decent shape however throughout some of the areas you could find yourself begging for more grass as there were some dried out burn spots. The rough was present even though around this course there's more water hazards than penal rough. The bunkers were of good consistency, not muddy but not tour fluff/soft bunker sand. The greens held their own, a few pitch marks and fringe problems on a few greens. They were slow/soft but a breeze to putt on nonetheless.

This course is one of the most inconsistent courses I know of, one month it can be picturesque and the next visit will be like today where it's definitely playable but it's not exquisite. I know I'm nitpicking (like with the fringe and fairway burn spots in non-landing areas) but a complex of this caliber and management, I expect more. It's a fun day for sure and I have a sense of sentimental feelings towards this place but for the prices charged there's still better shape and quality courses in Arizona.

Played this (now, only remaining in AZ) Pete Dye designed course that used to be private years ago for $50 off GolfNow around 11am Friday May 29th. Pulling into this community, it is visually a declining upper class area that has fallen on hard(er) times than in previous prime East Mesa rich times. The 'country club' has community areas, banquet halls and even a tennis/swimming club. The course itself is presented aside the other extra curricular activities with it's own sorta-separate parking lot. The club house was sufficient with COVID-19 measurements loosely followed (bare minimum for sure) and the staff was present. I paid my green fee, wanted to warm up so I bought a shabby looking shag bag of about 40 balls for an additional $8 and was given instructions about the directions (which are needed) to get to the practice tee. Also should note I got a course guide for free which is nice to see more and more courses practicing.

Now, I don't know what it is about Pete Dye courses of which I've now played three (ASU Karsten, Kiawah Ocean and now RMRCC) but the routing and cart paths are ALWAYS convoluted for whatever reason. I almost got lost two to three times...just felt that needed to be mentioned. Onto the course conditions! The practice tee had ample space into a dirt filled, grass absent, targets aplenty area with practice greens around. The tee boxes, which there are 5 of, were trimmed and surrounded by little landscaping rock paths. The fairways were well lined and a little dry which to expect of the summer conditions starting. The bunkers were well maintained without rakes for the players of the day but allowed for a variety of shots into greens. The greens all day showed consistent roll absent of horrendous pitch marks and rolling around a 10 I'd guess. The downfall was, if I had to pick, the rough as they had many bare spots even with the majority of fairways and greens being surrounded by bunkers or native desert area.

What type of review would this be without strategy? Pete Dye's designs linger on my mind the more and more I study golf course architecture because I truly feel he...is a genius. This course was a brute in all the right ways. From the Gold Tips it plays around 6600 which isn't long in today's game but each hole presented a challenge. Whether it was the sightline off the tee from a looming fairway bunker, the position of the flag on an elevated well guarded green or the continuous, multi-tiered greens...each hole had Pete Dye's fingerprint. I left today thinking simply, Pete Dye's courses play the golfer as much as the golfer plays the course. I enjoyed myself today and price/amenities withstanding I would absolutely advise the Arizona resident to try out this course themselves.

Never did I feel the conditions of the course hampered my ability to hit the shot I wanted, never did I feel the course was reaching the "manufactured difficulty" many other locations fall into the trap of nor did I ever lose sight of what the game of golf means which is to have fun and challenge your skill.

Played The Links at Queen Creek as a single around 12:24 pm off GolfNow for $22 Friday May 8th. This course located in San Tan/Queen Creek off Ironwood and Ocotillo presents itself pretty hidden behind a shopping plaza and Big O Tires. Off the bat, it kind of feels like an old-school municipal course with the parking lot and grill patio/bar situation going on when you walk up. Carts were a plenty with sanitized pre-cautions and the customer service inside sufficed. I was given a course booklet and was on my way. *To note, there is no driving range, just a few mats that direct into a net but there was a decent putting green adjacent to the first tee with 4/5 holes to warmup*

The course is very short, at 5787 from the tips and only 5172 from the forward's men tees at a par 70...the USGA won't be bringing the US Open here anytime soon. The tees were all pretty well lined and trimmed, nothing outrageous as far as divots or being unlevel. The fairways were manicured and had an aesthetically pleasing stripping to them. The rough was rather minimal; notably longer than the fairways but nothing penal and fear inducing from hiding your ball if the fairways were missed. The bunkers were in good condition however there aren't a ton out there. The greens were rather amazing, very smooth and playing difficult (fast and rather firm, though a solid wedge shot or iron will have some bite). The aprons and everything lining the course (trees, water, etc.) were free of substantial eye sores and didn't obstruct play in any way.

Upon my first play, the front nine was where you have to score as there was two par 5's and some rather tame par 4's. This whole course isn't long except one par 3 from the tips however I did use every club in my bag and I was definitely challenged by it's greens whether it was to put my approach shots pin-high or to keep from three putting every green. I wasn't ever bored to say the least. It's an easy course that's short and in present conditions...in good shape.

You won't be astounded by its elevation changes or architectural width but it will be a fun day out in the sun for a good rate.

Played this course as a threesome booked last minute Sunday for $40 since Ken McDonald Golf Course (municipal at Tempe was out of carts and instilled a quite rude demeanor in us visitors) ran out of carts. The course parking lot approaches the clubhouse and pro shop that are both quite aged easily enough to find the club drop. The cart barn guys were available and had washed/sanitized the carts (unlike Ken McDonald, okay I'll stop) and prepped the round for us. The check-in was simple, no CDC guidelines for COVID-19 surprisingly but I don't necessarily mind myself.

The course (which I also played in early March) is in declining shape heading into the summer months. The tee boxes had grass, yes...with plenty of divots even on Par 5s. Some weren't leveled perfectly and it became more noticeable as I walked up to the tees my partners were playing (White tees) in comparison to the tips. The fairways were trimmed rather nicely, no aesthetically pleasing trim lines or anything but overall led to a nice platform to hit my approach shot. To note, the rough and fairways bled into each other often times where the only difference didn't seem to be as the architect designed the rough to start much rather where the greenskeepers decided to stop cutting for fairway length. The greens were the best part of the day, which is not to say they were the purest carpet you could find. There were ample pitch marks on some greens however for the majority it was good enough to make putts. The back nine was definitely better than the front nine's greens somehow.

This course's strategy lends itself to lower scores for even the high handicapper. Houses line most if not all the holes and there isn't many blind tee shots. I counted about two tee shots where I needed previous playing experience to hit the appropriate line. I wouldn't come here consistently taking into account where I live...but sure. If you live in the Ahwatukee Foothills and nearby within per say 5 miles...it's a golf course that's open right now.

Booked as a single at 1:12 pm for $39 of GolfNow, boy was I excited to play this course. This course is located Northwest of Florence, AZ so it's basically an 70 minute drive for anyone in the Mesa/Chandler/Tempe region, if you're in Scottsdale you've probably ignored this course notification...DON'T. The service was ample and present on a packed Friday here midday. No cart guys picking up your bags once you drive up but I personally don't mind that (especially with COVID-19). Pro shop had some info about the virus and limiting people in enclosed spaces, check in was quick and I was off to hit complimentary balls on the practice tee. A quick look around, they have a large putting green with a practice chipping green with a bunker and ample room on the practice tee. I was getting a good lather going and grooving my swing for the day. I kept an eye on the time and was never checked in by the starter who was present so I drove over at around 1:05pm. I was told my two some decided to tee of early (without my knowledge, hmmm) and I had to chase them down as they were about to leave the first tee. A little bumpy start but we're off.

Onto the course, the main event. Whew. Conditions are pure. The tee boxes were perfectly lined and setup nicely. They have 5 tee boxes with a few combo sets that can play the course for your skill 7 different ways. Tips around 7300, Men's FWD around 6300 and Women's around 5300. Good variance. The fairways were cut crisply and had beautiful mower lines/pattern in all the fairways. The rough was of good length and consistency which was then lined by maintained red rock/landscaping. The bunkers were the only downside as they were more sandy at the beach than packed sand for green side spin. The greens were absolutely pristine and rolled so true. Funny thing is the two workers at the course and local said they were slow, oh my goodness I wouldn't want to putt downhill when they're "fast"..they were running at least a 12.5. The whole course was in phenomenal shape, I couldn't even believe how great the course looked. I was in the type of disbelief you're in when your fast food order actually looks like the pictures and videos on advertisements. This course looked like the pictures you see...in mid-late April..when the heat is kicking in and the grass is transitioning. Unbelievable.

Now, my favorite part is the strategic review I write for courses. Poston Butte is not like you're normal golf club in AZ. Yes there are houses nearby but the course was built first and years later the houses came. Some courses were built the opposite way. I say that because the fairways are wide, generous and plenty of undulations. The holes vary in strategy off the tee and approaches into the green. Want to hit driver every hole? You're welcome to it as there's room...but you won't have to. In fact you'll gain an advantage often times by having a good number into these greens as they're often tiered and angled. The 17th island green (according to the local, Scooter) is the same size as the TPC Sawgrass course. Oddly enough from the tee the green looks quite habitable...however once you walk that bridge you'll see the green is pretty small with little fringe space and one small bunker front left. It's memorable for sure (missed the 8 footer for birdie though).

All in all, this is another prime example of a Troon Managed course that's in spectacular shape year round with service to boot. This course was beyond fun and the locals/workers were more than gracious in their hosting. Definitely an extremely fun track , in beyond pure shape and good price for the play. I will be back this summer to do a deep dive of photos and play at my lonesome.

Booked a GolfNow Tee time at 8:30am as a single for $45 as my girlfriend works nearby and has heard/seen some good things about this place and area in general. When I pulled into the parking lot around 7:50am I saw maybe at most 10 cars which is surprising to say the least for ANY Arizona golf course when not summer but maybe COVID-19 had something to do with that. Anyways, the customer service was present. Two people greeting at front with well established distancing , don't know if there was any way to confirm if the carts had been sanitized but they didn't grab my bag and get in my face so that's good. As I walked to the pro shop there was a sign that read: "no more than 4 people in the pro shop at a time" and I walked in and confirmed my pre-paid tee time. The guy at the desk (Gary or Steve) asked if I was a first timer, I said yes and he gave me a course guide for free and gave me some pointers.

Onto the course, the conditions seemed very middling...and I mean that for the majority it was still prime season but you can TELL that the sun and heat is starting to be right around the corner. The fairways and the greens were still prime and aesthetically pleasing to look at and play off. However, the course got rough around the edges. I counted 4 greens that had suffered from some type of grass disease that was killing the collar of the green/fringe area. Sparse, but present . The bunkers were of a great consistency without any rakes present however they had been tended to in the morning obviously (or recently, IDK). The greens were very soft and surprisingly on the slower side, I couldn't get a putt to the hole almost all day.

This course is truly a tale of two personalities. The front nine (which used to be the back nine according to the old course guide I was given) is called "Mountain" which it certainly does for about 7 holes. The first gradually climbs up. With the second hole already giving picturesque views. The rest of the front nine plays in and around the mountain which ends with a par 3 8th and par 5 9th, I mention that because those two holes display what the back nine "Valley" is like. Flat and LONG. The back nine plays about 3,800 from the tips and the course rounds out at 7,162. That's pretty regulation. While the course plays long, it plays even longer because the fairways are so narrow and tight (lined by houses on the back) which makes for a day of sludging out long-mid irons out of rough or desert to postage sized stamp greens. Challenging for sure.

The course was in middle/high tier playability in conditions, the routing is fun however the strategy is kind of ...driver long irons heavy. Bring your a game with the big dog because it needs to be accurate. This course is NOT walkable for note, but an enjoyable place to get away from the Mesa/PHX/Scottsdale hub.

This review will be an all encompassing review of the past few times I've played here as my best friend works here and we've been able to get out and play 3 to 4 times in the past few weeks. In general from my experience this course's staff is well present, three instructors with plenty of cart-assistants and pro-shop attendees as well. The COVID-19 adjustments this course has made is limited with basically the bare minimum of pool noodles in all holes and remote service for drinks and food. The interior is still rather packed considering the awareness and warnings behind this novel virus. So if you're looking for courses who have improvised and limited the exposure to any staff and other golfers this course should be avoided.

The course itself is in great shape. The greens are well manicured with an absence of obscene pitch marks and accept any sort of approach shot with ease. The fairways are lush and lined with an aesthetically pleasing mowing pattern, my ball sits up fairly well with no debris when the fairway is found. The rough surroundings of the fairways and greens are limited to about 10-15 feet on every hole and plays about 2 inches thick consistently. Outside of the rough it can be pretty hit or miss. There's plenty of waste areas where desert shrubbery has grown in notably expansive since the photos last submitted for this course on greenskeeper.org . The tee boxes (there's four different tee boxes) were all very clean and absent of severe divot damage.

This course has a distinct desert links feel to it that's well thought with design and playability. Some tee shots are rather straight forward while others will make you have to gain local knowledge or playing experience to get the right line. The front nine has some strategic beasts of holes but nothing that isn't playable. The most fun aspect of this course is that wind really does affect every shot when it's above 10 mph. There's no residential housing near the Bear course with only a commercial lot and roads/canal adjacent to about 4/5 holes total. This course is fun and playable with tough challenges coming in the style of normal links golf, blind tee shots, blind approach shots, tightly mown green complexes and pot bunkers. It's not the toughest course to play, it's not in the pristine Arizona resort conditions however it's a good time.

This course has some pricing situations to sort out for sure, there's some customer service aspects that should be addressed especially during this pandemic situation we're in of 2020 and there's a few outlying intricate details this course needs to adjust HOWEVER I'm not saying this to keep anyone away ...just be aware.

I'd recommend this course as the facilities are good (not great) and the course is a unique layout on a rather flat farm/desert landscape in south Chandler...but if you prefer resort/target golf or casino level service for your golfing experiences you should look elsewhere.

My usual summertime threesome had a tee time for 9:52 am at a price off GolfNow for $44. The recent developments for COVID-19 has caused this course to take SOME action (foam pool noodle at the bottom of the cups, plastic bags for range balls instead of reusable buckets) however the check in process was the exact same. Not limiting people coming through the clubhouse, I would say is surprising to say the least. Other than those small items, the cartbarn guys were present (but didn't touch our bags to unload) and we were off to the first tee where the starter checked our receipts and led us onto the course a touch past 10:10am. Of notice, that's 18 minutes behind our scheduled tee time...

Onto the course, during this season of Arizona Golf there's been quite a bit of spring showers assisting every course's greenery and this course was no different. The fairways were lined precisely with manicured rough, the tee boxes were groomed crisply and the greens were consistent. I'd say the most notable thing was that this course doesn't have much rough width so the few tens of yards that line each fairway were quickly met with the usual desert shrubbery and rocks. The greens were in fact soft, rather receptive and scarce of any damaging pitch marks so putting was a pleasure. The bunkers were the only downfall on an otherwise pleasant day as they were beyond moist/watered, they were almost a consistency of mud but had been machine raked in the morning.

The course itself has been through its improvements here and there. This course is known for stacking the tee sheet a bit close together which can lead to massive backup during the busy/peak season however we were able to finish 18 within 4 hours. The strong suit of this course is the practice facility, $10 for a large bucket of 110 balls into a range that is rather large allowing for at least 50 golfers or so as well as an instruction area. They also have two putting greens that are rather large allowing for you to practice all types of putts, sloped or straight as well as a chipping green with a full sized bunker.

During the off season, I live nearby so I'm here quite a bit practicing and during the summer the rates can easily be booked for a hot deal of about $14 everyday. It's a fun course and worth a play anytime. I just wouldn't be able to suggest this place as the course you take your out-of-town friends that want to play golf unless they're on a strict budget.

Played Talking Stick Golf Club - Piipaash (formerly South) course on Sunday March 22nd with my father for his birthday round even amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Got a hot deal from GolfNow at 12:19 pm for $78 (in comparison to around $120 for similar times) and we weren't paired with anyone else. We showed up and the course had signage for the updated policies in remedy of COVID-19 (place your own bags on the cart near drop off, freshly sanitized carts, only one person per group check in at pro shop, pool noodles in the holes to prevent touching flagstick and other features) and we headed off to the driving range with free practice balls before the round. The driving range is split into two parts: one for daily pay golfers and other for teaching/clinic/lesson groups. The daily pay golfers' area was quite slim, with plenty of balls and equally amount of divots present. I counted about 15 slots which isn't a lot taking into account there's two courses that share the range. Nonetheless, we were accounted for and off onto the course with help by the touch-free interactions with the ranger and cart staff.

Onto the course, the conditions were prime. The tee boxes were well lined, manicured and accepted plastic/wooden tees with little effort. The fairways were wide and exempt of any bare spots, beautifully lush with the occasional large divot but not in any way obstructing from approach shots. The rough surrounding the fairways and greens were quite lengthy from the recent rain and moisture; definitely adding to the aesthetic and also difficulty if the wide, forgiving fairways were missed. The greens were pure...yes there were pitch-marks that were in recovery mode but for the most part it was as pure as Arizona March golf can get. The bunkers were of great consistency. However, with the prior mentioned alterations to the golf course in reaction to the virus, there's no rakes (in order to limit transmission from human-object-human) which made for the bunkers to act like actual hazards. Fun twist but I definitely appreciated the rakes more now seeing how many bunkers I was in all day.

The Piipaash course is a wide open (similar to O'odham) course that finds its difficulties around the greens and near the edges of the fairways. Many fairways seem to favor the left to right ball shape with an aggressive line cutting the dogleg often intercepted by the multitude of fairway bunkers. The greens have tremendous slope that challenges even the best of putters (I was not one that day) and rewards the sharpest of iron players who can play their approach atop a crest and become rewarded with the ball rolling closer to the hole. I found myself loving the aggressive line all too much because of how wide and welcoming the course is presented only to find myself in a bunker or the rough a few too main times. However! When the aggressive line is executed, the golf endorphins kick in and make this course all the MORE enjoyable.

Informed by an ex-instructor at this course, Piipaash is the easier of the two to score low on but due to the greens and water present a lot easier to have a score balloon quickly; I unfortunately confirmed the former.

Great course(s) on a flat stretch of land inside of the social mecca of a Scottsdale casino quarter often filled with music performers during summer pool parties, this course is worth the visit currently.

Played on a beautiful September 6th Friday for a 10:48am tee time. Booked off the course's website for $37 which does not anymore include range balls. The bag drop assistant was present and pulled the cart around near the pro shop after we paid. The starter told us we were playing Gold to Blue combination and we were off on our way. The course was empty except for about 5 groups or so, but the cart girl was servicing us until after 1:00 pm which was near the end of our round. We finished in 3 hours and 40 minutes. Good pace for midday.

The course conditions were far exceeding what we experienced when I played a few months ago. The tee boxes were all pristine setting up a great visual into green and lush fairways and rough surroundings. The fairways were all very clean, sitting any ball that found the fairway up in a great lie. The rough was long all day; they even seemed a bit layered in the way the US Open has graduating rough the more you miss the fairway. I noticed that about 10 yards from the fairway the rough was reaching up to the top of my shoes, I loved the look and play. The fairway bunkers and green side bunkers were all superb with no over-watering present and they didn't seem hard at all (I wasn't in one all day thankfully but my dad was, he never complained of unplayable conditions). The greens, wow. I remember playing this course a year or two ago and they were horrendous; one day they'd be burnt out and covered in bare spots and the next they'd be shaggy and running at around a 5 on the stimp. Not today, they were clean, fast and receptive to every shot imaginable. Any putt stayed on the line it started on and was a joy to putt on all day.

This course is amazing when it's in the shape it was in today (Friday). Every hole looked how the course's website presents itself. We were both amazed at the shape it was in as we've been playing this course for over a decade now and it WAS on the decline these past few years, but today. Man. I'd pay over $50 in September if it stayed in this shape. Bravo to the efforts and money put into this place and hopefully in the fall/winter they don't lose it because I'm looking forward to returning quickly.
