Quick Nine

Headed out for a quick nine on a Sunday morning as a single. Was a little concerned as I was told by a couple members/season pass holders that they "triple book" their tee time and I was in a bit of a rush. All was good, played nine with a nice couple, had a few laughs, shot a 44 despite three doubles so not bad overall for me. Was done in ~2hrs which is fine for a Sunday morning.

Great value, difficult course

This is a target golf course, most holes command precision or goodbye ballskie. I enjoyed the round, the course is a good value on a hot deal.

Greens and fairway ok, not great, but still early in year.

Blue/Red

Liked the Red course more than the Blue Course

Also signage is a bit confusing

It would be better the rename each of the three nine hole courses Gold …Silver … Bronze Or some other naming rather than. Red. White and Blue

Nice greens, some very difficult holes, target golf

I golfed well the day I played this course and had a fun day. About half the holes command very precise accuracy and distance on approach shots to carry water/high grass. Most greens are very challenging. Err on the side of playing appropriate tees to allow for shorter iron shots into greens.

Use the course provided yardage book, or a rangefinder, this course demands target golf on most shots.

Greens were in great shape, fairways had good grass and in great shape but pretty shaggy the day I played
