FIRM greens

The course is almost entirely out of dormancy and there was good coverage nearly everywhere.

Greens were rolling quick and were firm. I'm talking no pitch marks were even being made with the highest and/or longest of shots, Rock hard if you will. The best part of no one making marks is of course that they rolled smooth and true.

Spring 2017

Fantastic day at a new course.

This course has the bones of a 1950s CC style layout. Small greens, tree lined fairways and perimeter housing typical of the era all fit into a relatively compact parcel. The surrounding area still has quite a bit of Ag and some newer homes that also border the course. None of the housing old or new is inside the course boundaries. A 2008 redesign has added bunkering and mounding that gives the course both added aesthetics and more challenging shots requiring accuracy and course management off the tee and into greens.

Pace- it was a large Raisin industry tournament and surprisingly there was very little backup or waiting, sub 5 hours

Conditions- There were signs of aeration on the tees with the accompanying brown areas. All were level and had good coverage. Fairways were lush with only occasional areas where work was needed and/or being done. Rough was consistent at 3" or less. Sand looked consistent and firm, although we never had to play out of a bunker. Greens were in very good shape. There were occasional healing marks that were visible but did not affect roll at a club where every ball mark gets fixed by members who care. (Why oh why can't public course golfers do this?) Speeds were medium to slow and firmness was on the soft side.

Staff- every one treated us as if we were members.

Value- guest rate is 50 I believe (don't quote me).

Layout- as mentioned above the 2008 revamp has added shot value, difficulty, aesthetics and strategy to what was once a very straightforward CC layout.

Facilities- you could see the old styling in the bones of the buildings but all are well maintained and many areas have had upgrades. Large clubhouse with indoor/outdoor bar pub and a large banquet area.

Although private, if you can get reciprocal play or into a tournament etc I recommend play.
