Played early today, Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend. We played early, about 6:30 am, and the pace was good at 4:05. Quite crowded out there but still moved along nicely. The coffee shop was closed and it did not look like they were operating. The range was open.
The course was in good shape. Green and lush fairways, some roll still. They were putting some water on it because of the heat. Seemed to excite the bugs, they were out in force, including mosquitoes. I was in one bunker and it was in good shape. The rough was a factor but cut down and we generally had no trouble finding balls. The greens rolled well, but were inconsistent. Most of them were slow side of medium.
Overall, a good experience. Good length, with some fun holes. Recommended.» Close

Played early today, May 17, just before 7:00 am. Was extremely worried about POP when the group in front of us was a hole behind after the first hole, and had much trouble on the second, but with encouragement from us and the marshal they played at a nice pace after that and we finished in 4:10. On service at the course, the coffee shop was opening for limited take out service as we were making the turn after nine. Looked like the range was open also but I did not get a chance to get up there.
The grounds crew has obviously been out there working on the deeper parts of the rough, such as right on #1, but there are still quite a few nasty areas including under those trees. The fairways were not as lush as last week, particularly on the back nine where they generally looked dry and in need of water. The greens were a little faster than last week but there were some bumps on the front and a few of the greens on the back looked like they were burnt or getting some disease especially #10. That said, they rolled well except for those bumps on the front.
Overall, recommended. It was a gorgeous day out there today.» Close

Played Sunday, May 10. We played early, before 6:30 am, and the course was not crowded. It was Mother's Day which may have been a factor, but it was the first course I have played since the reopenings started that was not full of golfers. POP was excellent as a result. We played in four hours and the group on the 10th tee when we were finishing said they had played the front in two hours.
Standard Covid-19 restrictions with the addition of County monitors riding around the course observing whether social distancing was maintained. I did not see any breaches myself and I did not see the monitors interacting with golfers. They just loomed in the background. Note, the driving range was not open nor was the coffee shop open for any purpose. I heard the beverage cart was out on the course the day before but we had not seen it by the time we finished about 10:15.
The course was much lusher than I have seen it. It was actually a tough walk because of it. Walking up the hill to the 13th green felt like I was pushing a snow plow instead of a push cart. Great hitting surface in the fairway but not much roll, so the course played longer than usual. There were also some very thick native growth, British Open style, such as right on #1, and left on #6. Rough was generally up. I found 3 balls in the regular rough.
The greens looked great, were firm, but putted slower than usual. While they had okay speed, balls were left above holes on downhill putts much more than normal. The sand traps were okay.
Overall, a good day on the links. Always enjoy it here and it is still great to just get out of the house and enjoy golf again.» Close

Played the Blue tees today with a 7:00 am start. No amenities that I saw. Barricades and barriers, basically pay and get out on the course. The range was open though. Played as a single walking (no carts for anyone), two groups let me through on the front nine, ended up finishing in 3:15. At almost 6900 yards, heavy dew when I started in dissipating fog, it seemed to play long. Not hitting many fairways probably contributed to that feeling.
The fairways were on the shaggy side of lush but a good hitting surface. The rough was cut down but still a factor. I did not notice it anywhere else, but it looked like there was a first cut and a second cut on #14. That was the only area where I had trouble finding my ball.
The sand traps were not very good. The sand was fairly wet and not level. They had not been raked, nor were rakes available, so it was the luck of the draw when landing in them. I was in one footprint but otherwise lucky. The greens looked slower than they were. Maybe they were inconsistent, but I thought they slowed down as the morning progressed. Slow side of medium. They rolled pretty well though. No complaints. They had little surveyor flags in the cups so one could see them, for the most part, in a range finder. I had trouble all day locking in on distance though.
This was only the second or third time I have played this course, always with a cart before. It is not the easiest walk especially the trek up from 14 to 15, then 15 to 16. You go from the lowest part of the course to the highest point, down through a drainage area then straight up with a short par three on the flat about 2/3 of the way up to break the climb. Nice view at the top while resting for a minute (or two).» Close

Played Friday, 4/24, in the morning. They had it set up for limited interaction with staff, there was a table blocking the door to the trailer club house, just lay your credit card in the tray and wait for the okay to play. There was no one waiting when we arrived but when we made the turn I could see a line at the clubhouse. That said, everyone was pleasant and targeted to get people on the course. The putting and chipping green were closed but the driving range was open. There was someone in the parking lot announcing the conditions. Great service.
The usual pandemic measures were in place, including lines sprayed six feet apart next to the white tee boxes. We played the blues but social distancing was practiced. Thankfully, no masks required considering we were outdoors.
The course was in excellent shape. Nice fairway and pretty thick rough (lost a ball in the grass on 16). The native areas were pretty darn thick but I was able to play out of it when I found my ball (once having to go out backwards - don't ask). Several balls were lost by playing partners though. The sand was okay the two bunkers I was in. The greens were the highlight. Fast side of medium, smooth and fun. Fairly firm also.
The tough part of the round was no flags. They had holes with an insert about one inch deep. If they had painted the holes we might have been able to see them on approaches. As it was, we had to stand on the greens at times to find the holes. Pretty amazing considering we had pin sheets showing the area, 1-4, the hole was in. I liked the inserts though because putts were able to fall in on a good putt, something that would not be able to happen if they had reverse cups as some courses have.
We played in 4.5 hours. We were not slowed by the group in front after about 6 holes and the group behind rarely, if ever, had to wait after than time. Looking back on it, the relatively slow pace of play was likely because we were looking for balls in the deep rough, sometimes a couple or three on a hole. We did not spend a huge amount of time on it each time, but it added up. Overall, a fantastic time had by all.» Close
