Even on a wet day this was a good course

I wasn't expecting it to rain much on the selected day I chose to play, but it did up to 10min after I arrived. After the rain stopped and other players left, I decided to go ahead and play still. I'm glad I did b/c it ended up being a smooth day on the course and didn't rain again until 10min after I finished the 18th hole. Maybe it was meant for me to use that day as a good day of practice. The staff was great while everyone who was there to play were also very friendly. I look forward to coming back to this course again in the near future.

Typical Municipal Course

I was able to hit everything in my bag. Tee boxes and fairways are in ok shape considering it’s been cold and the Bermuda grass is mostly dormant. Greens are good but could be much better is people would repair their pitch marks.

Course was in pretty good condition for this time of year. Greens have been aerated probably 3-4 weeks ago. You could see the lunch marks but it didn’t effect putting. A little bit of sand still on the greens but it really didn’t effect anything.
