Chalk Mountain

Played the Blues (6299/70.5/123) in 4H on a partly cloudy, breezy afternoon with temps around 100. Matched up with Everett, Nathan and Kane, excellent group to play with. $24 to walk on the SLO Co card. Did something I have never had to do before. Walked the front and had to take a cart ($12) on the back. Temp was too much on a hilly course for me to walk 18.

Somewhat quirky, very hilly and challenging layout to walk. You rarely have a level lie on this course after you leave the tee box. Numerous holes where shaping shots would be beneficial around mature oaks.

Tees had good coverage and were well maintained for divots.

Fairways had good coverage for kikuyu. Mostly lush with some thin spots.

Rough a mixture of weeds and multiple different grasses, mostly mowed down to 2-3". Very playable.

Sand traps decently maintained, but more thin with patches in each trap that had as much sand as I would prefer to see.

Greens putted medium speed and were smooth. Very undulating with few ball marks, they held irons well.

The customer service was excellent, quick efficient check-in. Friendly Marshall out patrolling. No on course services. All grass range is okay. Once you leave the tee, they only have old school 100/150/200 yard markers. Very basic gas powered golf carts, definitely no GPS. Not a destination course, plenty of local flavor and it's convenient right off the 101 freeway. Overall, the playing conditions exceeded expectations, better than I have experienced here previously. Recommended.

hilly muni

Walked the Blues (6299/70.5/123) in 3H, 45M on an overcast, breezy afternoon with temps in the high 50's. Used my "free" round that you get at each county course on the SLO Card.

Numerous holes where shaping shots would be beneficial around mature oaks. Very hilly and challenging course to walk. You rarely have a level lie on this layout after you leave the tee box.

Tees winter thin with good coverage and were well maintained.

Fairways winter thin and had good coverage for kikuyu.

Rough a mixture of weeds and multiple different grasses, mostly mowed down to 2-3". Very playable.

Sand traps decently maintained, but more thin with patches in each trap that had as much sand as I would prefer to see.

Greens putted better than they looked. Kind of an off green, but putted medium speed and very mostly firm. Very undulating with few ball marks, they held irons well.

The customer service was excellent, quick efficient check-in. Friendly Marshall out patrolling. No on course services. All grass range facilities is okay. Once you leave the tee, they only have old school 100/150/200 yard markers. Very basic gas powered golf carts, definitely no GPS.

Somewhat quirky layout. But overall, the playing conditions exceeded expectations, better than I have experienced here previously. They have obviously tried to plant grass on tees and around greens. Not a destination course, plenty of local flavor and it's convenient right off the 101 freeway.

Chalk Mtn.

Walked the Blues (6299/70.5/123) in 4H, 10M twilight in sunny, breezy conditions around 70. Played on their B-Day week of special, thanks Chalk Mountain! Played 9 with Doug and Pat, both 86 year olds who were delightful playing partners. First time here in 7 years. VERY hilly course, very challenging to walk, especially in very windy conditions. You will rarely have a level lie on this course after you leave the tee box. The tees were reasonably level, had good coverage and were well maintained. Probably the best part of the course. The fairways were decent. Good coverage for kikuyu. The rough is well, pretty rough. Mixture of weeds and multiple different grasses, mostly mowed down to 3" relatively close to the fairway. 10 yards off many fairways, it looked like the rough had not been mowed or maintained in months. Calf to almost waist deep, almost certain lost ball and no way to play it even if you found your ball. The sand traps were mediocre. Mostly thin, with patches in each trap I was in that I would call good. The greens looked good, but putted medium slow to slow. Very undulating with few ball marks, they held irons well. Numerous holes where shaping the shot was required. The customer service was okay, as were the range facilities. They had old school 100/150/200 yard markers only. Overall, the quirky layout has more good holes than bad... but they have several holes here that I would call funky. Too many for one course. At best average playing conditions coupled with a below average layout means that I won't be playing here for at least another 7 years.
