First Time Playing

Greens were still a bit rough after aerification. Tees and fairways were fine.
A fivesome held up play a little early in morning. The starter said it must have been a threesome and twosome that joined up on 1. No Marshall out on course to stop that.

Fun course and layout. Some great rolling fairways that give your drives an added boost. Very few buildings on the Valley course so you don’t feel like your in the middle of a resort.

Boys Trip

This course was extremely fun. It did warm up quite a bit to about 105-110 by the last 6 holes so that was a little tough. The pace of play was slower for the first 9 holes; however it did open up on the last 6 holes.

We would definitely play this again and also try the Palms course

Worst Greens I've ever seen

We have all played in punched greens, but I have literally never seen greens this bad. I am not saying that for shock value, but not only were the greens punched, they had not been cut is quit some time. Extremely slow, crazy bouncy with some greens having thick patches of a different grass growing all over them.

There was no mention of this at booking, check-in or by the starter.
