Played 7/6 at 8:30. Shandin is in good all around shape for summer! Tees are good. Fairways are actually in nice shape, nice to hit any club or trajectory from. Rough is under control, and challenging at times, but consistent everywhere. Traps were all machine groomed today - nice to hit out of! Greens are good...the front nine was med-fast, the back nine was a little faster than the front, just right. Any approaches on greens from farther than 30 yards would require housekeeping( the way it should be)!
Snack bar meal and drink included(with your reciept). No drink cart today. Flags in, cups upside down. Sand bottles on carts. Cheers,» Close

Played 6/18 afternoon match with Deepsea14, and met Greg and Troy, for a fun round in good weather. The 'goose' is in good all around shape and still a good value.
Counted 4 greens today that had edge repair(sanding) happening, that likely won't affect play. Greg did Texas wedge roll over it on hole 11 without issue. I saw a couple high sided fairway bunkers with sprigs of grass growing through the sand that won't come into play, but catches the eye. #17 tee box is still giggle firm, you giggle trying put you tee into it, but improving and wont affect play. A threesome comfortably caught us on 5, the Marshall with his clipboard was between 5 & 6 and reminded us that we were 1 minute off schedule. He's a big guy with a clipboard, a nice guy and on duty...it just gave me flashbacks of my football coaches ;-) We picked up our pace. He's doing his job to the benefit of all that play this course, kudos. Hole 18(Eleanor), wasn't kind to us today...but I still look forward to making a birdie or even a par someday.

Played Seven Hills for first time Sat. 6/13 @ 10:20 w/Uncle Jim and Vic to help me keep my game #resh for my pending 6th match. Vic will be a new daddy with his new baby girl this Wednesday, happy to treat him to his last round for awhile!
7 Hills is a gr8 course in great shape right now for a great weekend rate of $40 per hacker. Range(mats) and putting greens(cups w/o flags) open, greens have upside down cups, flags and a 2" sch40 plastic coupler(I like this better than foam in cup). Plenty of carts, the drink cart came around 3 times, and POP was 4.5 hours.
Tee boxes are fine, sand bottles are on the carts, and sand buckets are available on every other hole to refill bottles. Went thru almost 2 sand bottles looking after tee boxes and fairway divots.
Fairways and rough are on par. Not much H2O and not many fairway bunkers. Fairway and greenside bunkers are nice, real sand...refreshing and old school!!!
Greens are soft and ate everything we threw at them from all distances. Putting was fast/med, except #17 which was fast/fast. I dare you to find smaller greens than 7 Hills...my kind of place!» Close

Played Sat 6/6 at 10:46, had a good time with friends. OakV is in good all around summertime shape. No drink cart, and the snack shop closes by 3. Range and putting greens open. Flags in and cups upside down. Greens were consistent and predictable enough for making 10 footers, and lagging 30+ footers.
Normally OakV eats me alive, but this was my first time playing here with a laser RF, instead of the fairway markers...wow, just saying. Scored near my index.

Played Ashwood at 9am Sunday 5/17 with Jim and Vic. Light winds at tee off, heavy winds by early afternoon, but still playable(3 club headwind at the end). They brought me here to help me warm up my iron game(no par 5's). Facilities are real nice and so is the service!
They have a super fleet of carts, and you can check in early like the good ol' days. The putting greens, chipping areas and range were all open. No beverage cart that day.
Tees were good, I only encountered one on Birch that I detected with a slight mound and some firmness.
Fairways were good, everywhere.
Rough was great, I found it often...and often useful to saving my game.
Sand, good, had a hardpan surface look, but only a slight surface crust hat would let balls plug to a good depth if you entered hot.
Greens were all consistent and performed well. However, they were rolling med/med, and you could easily see the grain. They did match the practice greens. The cups and flags were in a normal setup, they simply trust that we will not touch/remove the flag at this time.
Vic took the 'lucky charm' birdie chain from Jim on #10(sycamore #1), and wore it till it broke on his approach shot on #11. This is a good BC battleground, lots of par 3s and short par 4s!
I shall return here soon.» Close
