Last time.... again?
Played from the senior tees this time (5100 yds) instead of the regular men's tees (6200 yds). Makes a BIG difference. But I'm 67 and my brother in law is 64, so we took advantage of it. Wife played from the women's tees which are VERY near the senior tees, so it made things move more smoothly too. Beautiful day to play.
Windy and cold. Made some of the holes VERY tough. Not just the long ones either. Hit a 9 iron on a 145 yd par 3....flew the green 20 yds by.
This course is wide open - few trees on the edges. There are sand bunkers both in the fairways and around some of the greens. No fairway irrigation, so they were a bit dry - but good for run out! Great view of the lake too on #17.
A fun course
This course is in good shape with lots of fun holes, the back 9 is pretty hilly compared to the front 9.
Improved a lot over the years
They put a lot of money into this place to make it as nice as it is, and it shows. Good course conditions and a really nice clubhouse with good food and drink. Fun island hole, some other weird holes on the back 9. Gets wet in the spring and is very windy there up on a big hil
We have had a LOT of rain here in CNY this spring. Vesper Hills is located well above Owasco Lake. There were still some damp spots, and some areas where the carts were not permitted to go due to the ground being so soft. But overall, the course was in very good shape. The rough was a bit deeper than usual as the mowers have had a tough time getting around.
Tough but fun
Greens were aerated earlier in the week, making putts unpredictable. Otherwise it was a great day to play. Some of the Par 4's are 400+ yds, making it tough for intermediate players. Greens are usually very good and true. Some water/sand, but avoidable once you know the course.
Great course. Tough for medium level players as many of the par 4's are 400+ yds. Nice view of the lake from the 17th fairway.
FIRST TIME PLAYED THIS COURSE, IMPRESSED WITH
EVERY ASPECT, BACK NINE MORE DIFFICULT. ENJOYED EVERY HOLE. GREAT SCENERY IN ADDITION. COMING BACK,THANKS.
Very nice course, has only gotten better over the years. Rolling hills with scenic views. Fairways and greens in great shape. Fantastic clubhouse with excellent restaurant.
Great golf course
Had a wonderful time, course was in great shape and the weather was awesome
The course plays two distinct nines, it is pretty obvious that they were built around 15 years apart. Front nine is fairly flat with some nice forced water carries, reasonable bunkering, and open fairways. Your front nine misses are generally not harshly penalized. you play on top of a large hill so the wind is active, until you play 11-15. The back nine is much more topographically interesting, very hilly. A bad shot leads to drastically uneven lies. Greens are fast but the break is generally apparent, nothing too dramatic or unfair. Length doesn't prevent shorter hitters from succeeding.
Fun course, fantastic price for the conditions.
Vesper is great
Played with another single because we got held up after 7 holes with traffic. Slowed rest of round.
Course was mint. Top of hill with lots of wind. Greens were great. Will play again when in the area.
