Windy walk

Very well maintained track. Great walk. Large undulating greens. Bunkers need loosening but challenging is fun.

Cart policy bad

This is the second time I have had to pay extra as a single rider both times I have been sent out without any other riders in the group. I understand if they were sending out multiple carts why I would have to pay extra but kind of messed up when I am the only one riding.

Lots of grass

Fairways had a LOT of grass. A bit too much. Almost like thick-ish carpet. So there was no roll. Which made some holes really long. Especially when the usual wind came in.
The greens were also quite lush, had not quite come back from the punching. Playable, but the remnants of the punching is still quite visible. Just need some more cut and rolling to smooth them out.
Tee boxes are mostly nice. Again, LOTS of grass.
Pace was a tad slow, waited on a lot of shots, probably about half, so it took just under 5 hours. On a Tuesday mid-morning tee time.

Amazing course.

I was playing alone so it made it a little difficult to follow some of the holes. The course was in great shape and the greens were tough but perfect. Really enjoyed the round. Loved the links layout

Hot Times

A great time as always. Got in some early practice on the driving range and putting green. Finally found my swing so I was very happy sailing some nice drives out to the center of the fairways with some decent distance. The only problem with this was that opened up a new dynamic to the game, the medium length pitch and iron shots. Need some work on those. Putting was good, approaches and greens had recently been punched but were in great shape. Bunkers were well tended (I found too many of those). Day was hot so as the day wore on fatigue became a real factor. Had no issue at all with POP although it did take just about 5 hours for the round. I don't remember being rushed by the group behind ours or having to wait for the group in front to clear. RC is definitely one of my go-to courses for weekend play. Unfortunately, it is a little much to try and squeeze in on a weekday this time of year.

Disappointed - greens punched

I booked about a week in advance and there was no mention of aerification. I checked the latest reviews and found that no one mentioned this either. The day before my tee time I heard from a friend that the greens may in fact be punched. I then called the course to ask and was told that greens where done on June 1st (3 months ago) I have no idea why I was given completely incorrect information from the course staff. I would have gone to another course if I was properly informed. Over $70 for that???

Sandy and Punched Greens

No communication online or pro shop and only found out at 1st green. Heavily sanded, punched greens and collars. Made for a quite an adventure on the greens. Would have been great to get a heads up ahead of time.
