Water Hazards??

This course is in great shape………fairways, bunkers, greens. This was the first time that I had to deal with water hazards playing this course. The recent rain filled up the ponds. It’s too bad the course won’t have the ponds year round. It was a nice addition to the course. The pace of play was a little slow this day, but the weather was cool and I played my best round ever. This is my favorite local course!

Greens a bit slow and bumpy

Greens weren’t as quick nor smooth as they can be here, on this day. Been about 10 days after the rains so we expected the course to be in good shape, but it was just average. The lakes all have water in them! Which was nice to see. Made you think about your shots because of that, you weren’t getting away with it.
The rest of the course was a bit moist also, the course must have watered it overnight or something as the place didn’t run out as you might expect from dry winters.
I’m sure it’ll be back in tip top shape soon.

That Time of Year

I would give this course a higher rating if the Golf Now people would have told me they had just aerated. Why such a big secret? This course has a great layout, and good variety of holes. I was a bit concerned when my playing partner warned me about the three guys on bikes coming out of the bushes on the 10th hole heading towards us were tweekers and said don't hassle them they might be packing. He even asked me if I had a gun. This course would be better if the water features actually had water in them. I get the state's water rationing, but it's your fault for not voting the idiot out of office, not mine. Most times I come to this course it's in great shape and very fun to play. Just wish the greens would have been better.

A few negative comments...

Great course. Always enjoyed the layout, although a few minor complaints, one major one:
1. Pace a play was a tad long on 10/3, 8:20am tee time. There appeared to be a men's tournament that caused the backup; though no on-course marshal was present trying to speed up the round.
2. Greens - majority of the greens were perfect. Appeared to be patchy areas along the edges.
3. Starter named Marc (major issue) - guy is very rude. In our foursome, there were 3 carts. Me and my buddy in one, and two other carts each with single riders. On the 2nd hole, he came all the way out to our group and told one guy that he needs to share his cart w/ the other single as they were running low on carts. However, the groups in front and behind us (and groups throughout the course), you can see single riders all over the place. I've seen Marc in is his power trip element before, it's not a pleasant situation.
