Greens are back!

Governors had some trouble with the greens but they have it fixed! That’s the review. This course has always been great but wasn’t worth the money when the greens were struggling. So if you were staying away like I was for a little bit, now is the time to get back out there.

Cold wet day but great course

Played on 1/22. Very cold and wet conditions. Course held up very well. Greens were in great shape. Rolled very true. Layout is fun but challenging. Some hidden dangers which will be easier 2nd time around. Lots of deep bunkers to catch wide tee shots. Very fun and fair course.

Country Club Vibes

You definitely get that country club vibe here. It's a nice facility, club house, and well maintained. The practice area is awesome with big driving range, separate short-game area, grass practice tee area, stacks of balls on range. The course layout is really nice. It's challenging and certainly looks intimidating, but for some reason I always play well here. And if you really want to get your money's worth... don't miss out on the locker room. The amenities are quite nice with big showers, all the toiletries/razors, and big plush towels.

Always enjoyable

This is a course you will want to play repeatedly. It is largely open and varying in elevation leading to a variety of lies that will challenge all golfers. The greens are fairly large and relatively flat, but always in great condition. The holes also vary in length and direction (left to right, right to left…). The staff are pleasant and the Starter runs a tight ship getting people organized and off on time.

The starter there runs a tight ship and I love it. The course was in great shape and they did an outstanding job of keeping leaves off the course.
