The course was in really bad shape. The greens were just O.K. We played Cypress 2 days earlier. Pay the extra few dollars, and have a great time. .

No driving benefit

Bring your 3 wood. It’s challenging. Course management a must. Club House clerk was not friendly. Kind of a jerk actually

Blacklake

Rode the Blues (6034/69.3/124) on the Canyon/Oaks combo in 3.5H on a GN Hot Deal. Overcast, fairly calm and in the 60's made for pleasant golfing weather.

Ted Robinson, Sr. design. Shorter, tight, quirky tree lined layout. Many holes turn with shots over trees possible to shorten several holes. I hit as many irons off the tee as I ever have on a regulation 18 hole course.

From tee to green kikuyu. Mostly very playable but far from lush. Tees could use leveling and divot repair. Fairways played firm with lots of roll. Rough not very high but was penal because it was inconsistent. All were below average in condition.

Traps had decent sand and were okay to play out of.

Greens putted medium speed and were receptive to full shots. Several on the Oaks 9 looked like they had some prior disease challenges. Many were bumpy.

Quick efficient check-in and a friendly Marshall. Basic carts did not have GPS, no on course services. The playing conditions and layout were at best mediocre. With this course right between Cypress Ridge and Monarch Dunes, it is hard to recommend with both those much better options within a few miles.

Fun Place.

Course is in average shape. Lots of debris . Canyon/Oak are more challenging. Staff is very friendly, food in the grille is always top notch for the price and portions.

Nice course, my wife and I liked the way the course was laid out, the fairways weren’t super tight, very forgiving on most holes.the greens speed was just about right,not to fast, and we also liked smelling the Eucalyptus trees as we played. In all, we had a good time on Mother’s Day Weekend, Thanks, From the Little’s
