CMR

Rode the Blues (6235/70.6/126) with 3 really nice super seniors. The POP was dreadful, 5H to play Friday morning? The weather was in the 70's, breezy and partly cloudy. Interesting layout, up/down rolling hills. I would have liked to have played the course before the "turf reduction". IMO, courses with crowned fairways make poor candidates for "turf reduction" projects. The original design of CMR had balls on the outer portion on each side of most fairways funneling toward the rough. When much of the rough is removed, it creates conditions where balls often roll 40-60 yards farther than the course was designed for. Especially true on a course that is so hilly. This creates POP challenges, which further irritates the same players a course in trouble is trying to entice to play there. The tees were okay, most had decent coverage but are getting thin from a lack of watering. Same for the fairways and rough. Fairways were more consistent and playable than the rough that is still present. The sand traps were mediocre to poor. Fine dirt and many were thin. From tee to green, the course was average to below average. However, the greens were excellent. The putted fast and held shots well. Some of the best greens I have putted on this golf season. No driving range, they provide nets beside the starter. Friendly Starter. Sorry to hear that this course is scheduled for closure. You can see the bones are there for an above average, hilly, challenging course.

Great course except for the bunkers.

The tee boxes and fairways are pretty nice for being a desert like course. The greens are great. The are fast and challenging. The bunkers don't really have sand. They are hard compact sand/dirt that is extremely hard to get out of especially if you are at a greenside bunker. It's hard to get under the ball. If they would add some sand to the bunkers this would be a great course all around.

Terrible

This course is in absolutely terrible condition. It is due to be shut down on July 8. Do your clients a favor and take it off your web site. Management will take your money and you will be extremely disappointed. Pace of play is fast cause you’ll be the only one on the course.

Tough course

First time playing the course, fortunately I was grouped with someone that was familiar with the course. Fairways are tight and very hard, you pay a price for missing them. The greens are hard to read, extremely quick and nearly impossible to stick (for me). Overall a great course, my only complaint is the lack of a driving range. Hitting into a net doesn't prepare you for how your ball is flying that day. Definitely playing it again

This is a course that you need to play a few times to know where to hit shot. A great deal of blind shots, and challenging elevation changes on approach shots. But overall a good layout and a FUN course to play!

Good value

Course needs more water to the fairways. The rough is the better surface than the low cut fairways. Greens are wicked fast. Several really nice looking holes. Very nice staff!

My daughters birthday.

We enjoyed the course, nice greens. However, we never saw a marshall nor a cart lady. It took us 5.5 hours to play the 18 and we had people hitting down on us. We let them pass ahead only to find them backed up at yhe next 9 holes.
