This is one of my favorite courses...it just seems to fit my eye, and I like the layout. The area received a lot of rain over the past 3+ days, and overnight as well; however, the course was remarkably dry. Even so, it was cart path only (to be expected), so the round ended up being a tad slow. The fairways have thick grass, but a lot of divots (chunks almost) probably due to the wetness below the surface; however, not many were repaired. The greens were in excellent shape and were pretty much dry--they rolled pretty true, but lots of pitch marks because they were soft (again, not many repaired). Many bunkers had water in them, and others were "crusty," so better to just pick it clean vs. a standard bunker shot. The cart girl came around frequently, and even went back to the clubhouse to pack some hot dogs for the guys with us...very nice! Great staff--bag drop, starter, and cart personnel. We were able to get a prepaid special on GolfNow.com for $55/person, so that was a good deal. Unfortunately, though, from the Baltimore area it took 2 hrs. with rush-hour traffic to get down there (which is 1 hr. 22 mins. generally), but the course was in great condition, and my 3 over 39 on the front nine made me forget about the traffic. (The back nine, not as good, but still shot in the 80's.) Part of Raspberry Golf Trail, give it a try if you haven't--worth it!
