It's the Extra Care & Service

Beautiful day for 18 today. Course remains in excellent shape. What made today special? 1) We were allowed to T off early. Always nice to beat the crowd and traffic. 2) I lost my cell phone between 16 and the clubhouse. Fell out of my pocket. Thankfully, someone found it, turned it in to the pro shop and the pro shop STAYED OPEN until I could get back to retrieve it. Absolutely service above and beyond. Thanks to all!

Nice day for Golf

Course in great shape, looks like they recently aerated the greens. Putting was a little challenging for me and the greens were slow had to hit the ball firm to reach the pin. Had a early tee time and a great round.

Typical Whitney

Weather was great. T's, fairways, greens and most traps in great shape for this late in a hot summer. Must admit the course ate too many of my balls on this round; but we'll be back Tuesday to do better. Thanks for letting us off early.

Just a great course

People either love this course or hate it. If you can keep your ball in play then it’s great. If you’re left or right then it’s going to be a very long day. Not overly long at 6100 for blues, the teeth for the course is there is just no forgiveness if you hit some loose shots. BRING EXTRA BALLS. Some people do not like the “target golf” style of this course. There are at least 6 holes that are par 4s that you SHOULD hit iron instead of driver to keep it in play. Even the par 5 11th does not need driver since there is little hope of getting there in 2. I love the course because it makes you think. The greens are also usually fast and roll true.

Great conditions & pace of play

This course has really been turning around on condition ever since it was taken over by the casino. The upgraded carts with GPS are nice, but the course conditions are far more suited to the players. The greens are rolling true and of fair pace, tee boxes and fairways are in v Ryan good conditions. I teed off at 6:10 as the first person off and played in about 2 hours. Great way to start off a Sunday morning. The picture is of the approach to the 11th hole.

This course has great staff, & the lay-out is tough, but awesome!

Enjoy playing this course when the pace-of-play is good; it was great this round (4-1/2 hours). Challenging & beautiful!

Course is in great shape

Greens are rolling super fast. Fairways are in good shape too. A little slow after the first few holes because we caught up to a 5some, but they only played 9. I have played many rounds at this course and it’s one of my favorites. If you hit a lot of balls left or right, bring a lot of balls. If you can keep it in play you can score because it’s not super long from the blues. New carts have GPS and very comfortable seats.
