Walked the Blacks this morning 3/29/2021 3rd out joining a really nice and laid back single and twosome. Weather was perfect with no wind and it warming up nice on the back nine. POP 3 hrs 50 minutes.
Not much has changed since my review 2 weeks ago here.
The greens and tees are both nearing a 8.5 or 9 out of 10 shape.
Looks like they reseeded many tees over the last month and they are lush and green and beautiful. Level stance on mostly every tee. 9/10
The greens were again rolling firm, holding shots with spin beautifully. Very little to no ballmarks on the greens. Whenever they punch them it will be a shame as they really are in great shape. Had an interesting front pin on the par 3 4th hole today. They had the sprinklers on when we were on the tee. We all hit darts right at it. We walked up to Lake Rustic round the cup with standing water. I guess they are trying to get a lot of water on the greens maybe with warmer weather coming up. 8.5/10
Fairways contained semi-lush to thinner lies which is how this links course is meant to be played. 6/10
Was in one bunker on 15 greenside that had just enough sand to splash out of but was on the firmer side.
Greenside rough is a 9.5/10. Thick, uniform and lush.
Fairway rough just outside the edges of the fairways is in the 5 or 6/10 range with varying lies from semi-lush to thin to compact ground with no grass.
Just a picture perfect morning for golf on an awesome course. Highly recommend Rustic.» Close
