Played last weekend and I'd say the conditions are pretty similar to my last review before the punching.

Greens were a little slower than normal. When I made a ball mark there seemed to be a little bit sand right under the grass so I'm guessing the sand hasn't worked its way all the way down in the soil yet. I'm also guessing that this is contributing to the slower than normal pace. Some ball mark spots here and there, kind of typical I'd say.

Fairways are ok. Good roll on them and 50/50 on divots being filled in. I'm just wondering how much care will be put in these next couple of weeks with the overseeding scheduled.

Rough is completely playable, everything is a green light. I really don't remember seeing any real thick rough anywhere and believe me I only hit 1 fairway so I had ample opportunities to explore the rough.

Tees boxes were good and level with the exception of #8. That one needs to be completely redone. It seem there is more dirt than grass and I have no clue as to why. The back tee box is fine as is the front tee box but the middle one is gone.

FYI the course will be closed 9/29-10/1 for overseeding only. I'd say for a resident rate its ok but I'd certainly wait if I were a non-resident to play here.

Played the last 2 days. One in a tournament and one causal play. On Sunday we were the 6th group out and it took about 5 hours to play. In that heat it felt like 8 hours. Didn't see anyone slow out there i think the heat just took its toll on everyone. Yesterday we were 3rd out and finished at 4 hours. Sadly the group behind us was at least 3 holes behind us.

Greens are not too bad but a little on the slower side than I like. They healed better than I thought coming out of punching but I'd still like to see them rolled and cut a little tighter. Some putts were a little wobbly rolling to the hole that I thought was due to the length of the grass not the break of the putt.

Fairways are good. Pretty good lies but again like the greens I'd like them a mowed a little tighter. Still some good roll on drives and the usual amount of divots for here.

The rough is a mixed bag. There are some areas that are pretty bare and dry and then there are areas that the USGA is testing out for the US Open next year. So you got these polar opposites and everything else in between. I did post a picture on the GK app on the rough that was really deep.

In my previous reviews I made a comment about the traps being soft and while they don't seem as soft as then there were a couple of buried lies. With the local rules due to COVID being able to place the ball within a club length does mitigate this.

Course is due for punching (again) and overseeding at the end of October. North is being overseeded in a couple of weeks so there is not much time to get out here. Probably ok to check out if you're a resident but I'd hold off if I was a non-resident for now.

Had a tee time for this morning for 2, me and a buddy. My buddy cancelled last night (I didn't get it until this morning). Upon arriving at the golf shop I was told that since I was a single golfer that I am not allowed to play. I thought he was referring to walk ons which I know they do not allow now but this is even true if you have a tee time. I was pretty shocked and had to leave. I checked their website and this is not mentioned as one of their COVID precautions. So just FYI make sure you have someone. I on the other hand will not return here given this piss poor customer service and lack of communication. So long AB.

Played yesterday and teed off a little after 8. Pace of play was pretty good, we finished in a little over 4 hours. I agree with the last couple of reviews. The course is very nice right now and with this heat we have been getting they have still been able to maintain very good playing conditions.

There are some areas around the greens that are bare but those were marked with spray painted blue dots and we were able to take relief from it. Greens rolled well. Not the fastest I've seen here but still I'd say slightly above a medium pace. Just a few ball marks here and there but generally it looked like golfers had repaired their marks.

Fairways were pretty nice to hit from. Again with the heat there are going to be some bad spots but generally you'll have a good lie all day.

Rough isn't too bad and generally won't impact your club decision but I did have a lie that I decided not to try and muscle out and just hit a higher lofting club out to get back in play.

I seemed to find every bunker that was in the middle of the fairway (#3, #10, and #15). So much for aiming to the middle... Fairway bunkers a little firmer than the greenside bunker. The sand was a little firmer than I expected and I was in a greenside bunker too. They all did look pretty consistent too.

Even though I played poorly the course was very enjoyable and I'm looking to get back up here before the fall maintenance.

Played this past Saturday and teed off a little before 7. I must be getting nostalgic because this is another course the last time I played predates joining GK. Needless to say father time has killed a few of my brain cells and I don't remember much of the course. But I did remember the uphill par 4 and uphill might be an understatement.

Greens were way too overwatered. I get we are in the middle of this heat but we had a couple balls plugged on their approach shot. Obviously the greens were very very soft. I'm a heavy set guy (ok I'm fat) and I felt bad walking on the green because my footprint were all over the green. The pace was just ok, not really fast and not really slow.

Fairways and rough are about the same and you'll probably have a lot of different lies throughout the day. Wet grass, dry grass, hardpan, dirt, weeds, gopher holes are just some of the lies you may get during your round. Side note did have a friendly encounter with a snake about 15 ft from my ball on 14. I found out I can't hit a ball with my eyes looking out of the back of my head.

I was in one bunker and the sand looked like dirt. It's a really dark color sand. It actually played good though. I was able to thump it and get some spin on that.

I read a lot of reviews that talk about unlevel tee boxes and always thought those were picky but these tee boxes are in need of some serious leveling. Might be the worst set of tee boxes I've encountered in recent memory.

After playing I remember why I don't come here. Just an odd course in my opinion and not my particular cup of tea. I'm not a huge fan of in course OB markers because to me if you need those then that was a poorly designed hole. When you say "muni" this is what I picture. It's cheap, $40 walking on a weekend is certainly attractive. But the course leaves a lot to be desired and a little too far for me to justify.

Played this past weekend before the punching scheduled tomorrow and Wednesday. Overall decent conditions. Course is playing the easiest I've seen since it reopened. Greens are ok but there are way too many unrepaired/poorly repaired ball marks. Greens were a little slow in my opinion but I'm a terrible putter so take it for what its worth. I really hope that the punching will help heal these greens up.

Fairways are ok. There are some unfilled divots and some that are filled in.

Rough is generally not penalizing. There were a couple of areas that the mowers did not address because that part was wet so they were keeping the mowers out of those areas.

Some of the bunkers had been raked and some hadn't. Just in this day and age it's hard to expect every bunker to be raked prior to play.

Probably wait 4 weeks to let the course heal before coming back out.

Played today a little after 8 and man was it foggy for nearly the whole d%mn time out there. I don think we clearly see the group ahead until 14. This contributed to the slow pace today, pretty close to 5 1/2 hours I believe.

It’s a shame that they are punching on Tuesday and Wednesday because the course is really in great condition with the Cal Am here last week. There were some really gnarly areas in the rough.

North is being punched mid August so it wait 4-5 weeks before coming out.

Played in an event today and teed off a little before 10. Staff was great at check in and the girl at the turn was very friendly. Played pretty close to 4 hours so not too bad considering it was a little toasty in the sun. Unfortunately this is about as positive I can be about the course.

The greens were S-L-O-W. I think I have played punched and sanded greens that rolled faster than this. They were also over watered like crazy. I left some pretty sizable ball marks in those greens. We were teeing off on 17 and saw a guy watering the green on 11. Why? I have no clue. Did it need water? Absolutely not. I know because I left a crater the size of the moon on it. Putts were wobbly and slow. Did I mention they were slow? The practice green, forget about it. That thing looked like it hadn’t been cut in weeks.

Fairways are not good. I hit a good iron off the tee on 12 to the exact middle of the fairway only to have to hit off dirt. There are some good areas but it’s not consistent at all.

Rough is non existent and you’ll encounter grass, patchy grass, dirt, animal burrows, fallen trees, etc.

Tee boxes are bad too, unlevel, bare, patchy grass. I can’t remember what hole it was (6 maybe?) but there was literally no grass where we teed off from.

Bunkers were fair. Sand was a little firm than I’m accustomed to but it’s more like a cat litter type of sand.

This is probably my first bad experience here and I’m willing to overlook it but it is going to be a while and need to see some better reviews before I’m back.

I was trying to figure out the last time I was here and discovered that was prior to joining GK. Yes that was long ago and I realized father time has not been kind to my memory. I couldn't remember anything about this place. The course was super busy with a lot of people hanging out by the clubhouse/patio dining area. I was a little worried that the round was going to be long and while we did wait a lot it only took 4 1/2 hours.

Course itself is pretty short but trees align most fairways. Any wayward tee shots will find the adjacent fairways unless you hit into walking/running/horse trail that is part of the Sweetwater park. Water only comes into play on 17 and 18. I walked and was surprised when I looked at my phone how much I walked, almost 6 1/2 miles and the course is only 6200 yds. It's a pretty flat walk but with the heat out there standing in the sun can be draining. The good news is with all the trees there is plenty of shade to find a spot.

The course itself is ok. It seems they have been overwatering the course. There were some damp spots out there. Given the amount of play this course gets the greens could use some TLC. Many ball marks on the greens and they certainly could be rolled as a few putts were quite bumpy. There were some greens that were really really good though.

Fairways and rough are about the same. Fairways do have some good spots, some bares spots and some GUR. The rough is not penalizing but like the fairway it's a mixed bag of what you'll get.

The one bunker I was in was good and the others looked pretty similar. Tees boxes were ok. Again with the amount of play and considering the yardage you have people hitting all sorts of clubs off these tees.

The bar and restrooms look they have been renovated relatively recently as the decor seemed to be more modern. Staff and service was great. Price and the distance is a little too much for me to consider but if the conditions were a little better and it wasn't so hot out there I'd think about it.

Played last Saturday and overall the course seems to be preparing for the Cal Am tourney at the end of the month. So I expect that the course will probably be a little firmer as we get closer to this tourney.

Greens are good. They rolled pretty well and there may be a couple of ball marks but certainly not as much as the North (maybe because no one can hit these greens in regulation?).

The 2 fairways I found were nice to hit from and also nice to walk on. Wish I could hit from here more often. You'll find a few more divot in collection areas like the bottom of the hill on 13, etc. Still adequate roll out on drives. The last time I reviewed I mentioned that there were areas from the redesign that didn't seem to grow in completely and that still seems to be the case. Not sure why these areas are taking so long to grow in and be consistent with the other parts of the fairway.

While the rough is not Farmer's rough there are some spots that are which a couple of playing partners found. I think the rough immediately off the fairway is not that bad but I expect this to be growing over the next couple of weeks. Nothing like punishing 15 year old boys with knee high rough.

I have the same issues with the sand here as the North. They just seem to be putting too much on the face of the bunkers. I don't mind it in the bottom but the amount of plugged lies I have seen over the past year here is probably as much as I've seen in all my other golfing years combined.

Tee boxes are good. They didn't seem as beat up as the North.

Customer service is great as always. We were 3rd out so no problem with the pace. Overall quite enjoyable and should be getting better. I can't wait until I see some of the scores from the tournament so I can have a nice slice of humble pie.

Played here several times since the reopening and this is quite possibly the easiest I have ever seen the course play.

Greens are meh/ok at best. There are just too many unrepaired or poorly repaired ball marks on the greens. There are some areas that need attention whether that is some bare spots or the different grass trying to grow in. They are rolling decently probably at a medium pace however.

Fairways are ok too. Generally there are good lies but there are quite a few unfilled divots out there. The are cut to a good height to get a nice lie but again like the greens there are just some areas that need a little more attention.

Rough is non-existent. Everywhere is a green light in my opinion. I haven't hit a driver out of the rough yet but I have hit every other club. Yes that includes a putter.

Sand is troubling. I can't count how many plugged lies I have had and seen with other players. It seems they are putting too much sand on the face of bunkers. The penalty is the bunker itself not the fact that I have to take an unplayable lie and then still hit a bunker shot. But if your ball doesn't fly in and rolls in you can get a good enough lie to get that splash effect out the bunker.

Tees boxes are what you'd expect. Par 3s are beat up and there are good spots on the others. They probably need to resod #8 because that one is rough.

Customer service is outstanding as usual and the pace has been great but I have been getting off early so it was anywhere between 3 - 4 hours at most. Since they now are allowing 2 per cart it does seem like the later times are taking a little longer.

If you're a non-resident I don't think this will be worth your time but if you're local and want to possibly shoot one of your lowest scores well come on out.

Played yesterday and tees off about 8:20 and we finished right about 4 1/2 hours. We were not a 2some so it felt slow than what it actually was. Everything is good right now. Greens were rolling deceptively fast but the rain from Monday did help soften them up a bit. There are some areas to n a few greens (collars I believe) that were considered GUR. I had a hard time judging how much chips would roll out. Some seemed to check and others rolled more than I thought but I think that was this golfers own problem.

Fairways are pretty good and nice to hit from. There are some bare areas and divots but overall generally good to hit from. I didn’t think the rough was very penalizing. I really don’t think it changed my shot selection.

I wasn’t in a bunker but they looked pretty good. Played the back tee boxes so they were very good since they were not used as much. I also don’t remember them changing the tee boxes to Roman numerals. The forward tees to back were I to IV, kinda different and unique.

Awesome practice facility and staff. I really need to get there earlier and take advantage of that. Nice big putting green and another separate chipping green. Grass range which is always good turf to hit of off. Can’t wait until I can get back up here.

On a side note I’m not sure how long I have been coming up here (10 yrs???) but I know from the first time until yesterday they have been doing construction on the 15. Are they ever going to get this thing finished in my lifetime?
