Good Layout - Some Work Needed

Nice course. Greens were a mess. Bump and bounce putting. Some traps were muddy. Otherwise, it’s a fairly nice course.

Challenging

Always windy. Today was easily a 3 club wind. Greens were in abnormally bad shape. Slow and not running true in any way. It was the first day of the season and the music they were playing made up for the very poor greens.

Love rough golf

Conditions reflect cutbacks on expenses. I still love the course and being in the desert. I just adjusted to the dry summer fairways and greens. I hope they’ll restore the course to a better level of conditions in the Fall.
