Perfect weather
Walked

Overgrown

The course needs a massive amount of tree removal. The course is already narrow with many lateral hazards but the amount of trees lining each and every hole is problematic. The greens are in good condition.

Heard it’s closing this fall for a redo. About time. It’s playable but that’s the best I can say.

Rough fairways

Overall, the fairways and rough grass were not cut.
Very very ver hard to find balls off fairways.
Greens were cut inconsistently.

Way overbooked.

Course was massively overbooked. Starter was mad that we showed up, despite the fact we had a tee time. He tried turning us away.

Great Greens, But the Fairways…

Overall enjoyed it, the greens were in great shape. I got a cart and might not have noticed if I walked but the fairways are very bumpy. Driving through the middle of the fairway was like going off-roading. The grass was fine but not flat at all. Still pretty good overall, I assume the course renovation will address this.
