I played yesterday, joined by Kassper7. This was my second time here and I was so happy for another chance at this beautiful, fun and challenging course. Thank you, Johnny!
Customer service was great. When I called last week for a tee time they let me know that they greens were punched the prior week and may be a bit bumpy. I really appreciated the heads-up and they actually called me a few days later to make sure I knew. Upon arrival they were very welcoming of us as guests. Check in was easy, we got our cart, hit a few range balls and teed off a few minutes before our 12:15pm tee time.
The course was in overall good shape. The fairways were green and lush, the bunkers had just the right amount of soft sand. The greens were not as bumpy as I was expecting and rolled a medium speed. Several greens had bad patchy spots around the edges but no putts were affected by them. None of our missed putts could be blamed on the conditions. The tee boxes were not so good. They were nicely level, but ranged from very chewed up to being in dire need of mowing. The rough was thick and deep in most areas, short and tight in others. There were many maintenance workers out on the course so I’m sure in a few days conditions will be even better.
The layout is wonderful. There is a great variety of holes and a lot tougher than you would think at first glance. There are several forced carries –some at awkward lay-up distances (for me, anyway) and many, many bunkers guarding the greens. A couple of the par 3s are steeply uphill adding considerable yardage. Hole 13 is gorgeous par 3 over water that was an absolute score killer for me as 2 balls went for a swim. I will definitely use a lot more club next time!
If you haven’t played here before, be sure to, should you have the chance. Guys, keep your shirttails tucked in. They are very strict about that!
Highly recommended.» Close
