4.0 out of
Very surprised!! I haven't played this course in probably 10 years, mainly because it had gone downhill and the conditions were awful. However, a friend told me it had improved. And, boy has it! I was very surprised. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in excellent shape. The only dirt spots were in the rough, mostly in the paths exiting the greens and where carts exit the fairways. The greens were soooo fast--I had 5 three putts and even a four putt! Don't get above the hole! But, the greens were in fantastic shape. The bunkers were okay--they had a thin layer of sand on top of some hard pan. They need to put some time and money into improving the bunkers. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because of the pace of play...it took us over 5 hours on a Saturday. The course was not all that busy, but we waited every shot on every hole. On the turn I told the Pro Shop to send out a marshal, but that didn't happen. However, we saw the problem on the back...one foursome had 1.5 holes open in front of them, so we called and they did send someone out. Just had to be persistent. Paced picked up, but the damage was already done. Some of the normally poorly conditioned holes, i.e., #11, #13, and #15 were in good shape. Hole #13 was cart path only, but is recovering. If you haven't played it due to conditions, give it another try and see if you don't think it's improved.
