Too many slow players today

Usually not the case of slow play but several foursomes with beginners hitting all over the place. Nearly 5 hour round including skipping 3 holes to beat sundown and break gridlock. Course and staff were great.

Perfect day for golf

With the days getting shorter and mornings colder we decided to move our tee time to after 10. Driving there looked like it could have been foggy, but arrived to a clear course. Grounds looked like they were freshly cut and cared for. Fairways were clearly seen and rough was not overly grown. Greens were a little fast, but overall a great day for golf.

Back 9 Twice

Arrived to learn they were sanding the greens on the front so we would be playing the back 2x. No big deal. Just got new clubs and wanted to hit them. Met a nice couple and enjoyed the day. Finished in just under 4 hours. I'll be back in a couple weeks after the greens have had time to recover. Fairways were in good shape.

Great Course

We had a really good time. The course was well maintained. The Golf Marshall was a little grumpy.
