Got to the course just ahead of a twilight league. Joined up with two gentlemen and off we went. The course snakes its way between houses, streets, a bank, and wooded areas. The greens have a lot of break to them. Greens were running medium speed when played. Good thing because they'd be almost unputtable if running fast. A few blind shots. Drive it straight off the tee and you'll be fine. Hit it wayward and you'll be in the houses.

The lady in the pro shop and the young man at the cart return were both very friendly. People at the adjacent bar were having a good time, too!

The course is not the longest nor the most difficult, but for late February was in great shape. I've always liked the greens at Sheppard Hills because they've got som movement to them. Not just flat! The young man in the Pro Shop was extremely nice as well.

I had a great round of golf. Pace was good with two groups in front of me for the afternoon. Tee boxes and greens were in excellent shape. Fairways were okay with some weeds in the fairway. Grass on the fairway was well maintained as was the first cut and rough. The rough was fair but still challenging. Staff was friendly and the maintenance staff was very courteous when you were taking a shoot. Will be going back until winter really sets in.

Played on a recent Sunday afternoon and had the place to ourselves. Go Birds! Anyways, the course was in fine shape, tee boxes level, fairways cut and the rough was manageable with the greens rolling true. I've been able to play up here at least once or twice year now for the last 10 years and I enjoy the course a little more each time I play it. ....One note of caution, this is not a knock but an observation, if I'm a lefthander with a tendency to slice I may just want to skip the front nine and play the back twice as 8 of the first nine holes have woods or out of bounds down the left side. Me being a righty with a fade "slice" it' a fun course to play. Did the hot deal and was treated like a VIP!
