Good day slightly muddy

Played a foursome, a beautiful day. The only issue were some muddy conditions that required cart path only on sloped fairways. Considering recent rains course was very playable, had a great time.

La Contente

I have been playing this course for years and it has a unique layout and is challenging but the greens are in really sad shape. Scars mostly. Not sure if this is weather related or not but I hope it is better by spring.

Has seen better days

I write this giving full consideration there was 2" of rain 4to6 days ago. I have enjoyed this course in the past. It has been about a year since my last round. The staff is great. The layout is great. Good charge on the cart batteries. The tee boxes aren't bad. The fairways are hearty for mid December. The sand traps were mostly dirt/sand mix. The greens were diseased and a big distraction. They look like Dry Creek Ranch greens. 5 hours is way too much time to play 18. It's a 50 mile hike for me. I won't be back. Unless improvements are made.

First rain of the year.

Only finished 9 holes. They gave us a 9 hole rain check. Just a few bare spots on the greens, they are working on them and should be good in the spring.

Perfect weather and the pace was great.

Really perfect autumn weather and the pace was great. There were wet spots due to overwatering and the cart paths need to be repaired. Quite dangerous potholes near the tee boxes. Greens were not quite ready yet after punching. Still enjoyed the game.

Lousy Greens

Greens had numerous bare spots; pretty crappy. Difficult to chip and put through bare spots and sand. Had difficultly, finding a spot to move ball on green to; due to numerous bare spots with sand.

Golf Cart was a goo.

Range was a net with mats; mats were decent.
Chipping/putting green was garbage.

Some fairways were rock hard, with some bare spots, others were soaked in various spots.

Challenging topography though on some holes.

Needs Help

The majority of the greens are in terrible shape. Some of the fairways are fairly dry but I guess that’s to be expected for the time of the year. I cannot wait to play this golf course in a couple of months when maybe it’ll be plush. I love the layout, it’s not very long but it is challenging, despite having a couple of holes that don’t really make sense
