Great course overall

Blue Sky is a fun layout. Not particularly difficult. Fair test of golf. Greens looked good. Tee boxes and fairways are looking a little rough. Dead patches. Staff is always great. A little overpriced to me for the course conditions but not too bad. If you want a solid, fun round of golf you can’t go wrong here. My group plays there once a month.

Good Local Course

Play here pretty often and always nice to get out to play 9 holes. Greens were extra sandy today and pace of play a bit slow. Seems there was a bit of a back up compared to normal. I still recommend this course as i have played it several times and this is the first time I have encountered a slower pace and very sandy greens. I'll be back there in another week or two.

Good value. Fun course to just play and get out in open air.

Liked the wide open fairways. Truly a good value. not the best kept course but for the money a good course to go out and knock the ball around. Course should be maybe a 2.5 star rating but for money I'd give it a 4. Played fairly fast. Don't take game too serious if playing here but you will enjoy the day.

Doing a great job during this difficult times

This club is doing a great job with social distancing - no rakes, pool noodles around the flag sticks, single carts, etc. Great course to walk except for the stretch between 12 & 13. Love the new tee markers with the hole distance. Really enjoyed my round today and looking forward to playing there again soon. Today's starter, Chip, did a good job of juggling the afternoon groups.

Fun Course Manage Expectations

People call this course over priced. Maybe, but by like $6. You play here for the atmosphere. It’s a relaxed place to play. No dress code. Fun place to play with a group of friends and have a few drinks. Although the course isn’t as nice as some in the area, it’s still really well taken care of. A lot of really cool holes. Some wide fairways to drive. Also some more difficult holes. Just manage your expectations and you’ll have a good time. Heather at the bar is friendly. Driving range is really good although it’s mats. Even if you don’t pay for the shot tracker, the machine will still track the balls path and give you one random stat (not all the stats). It alternates between a distance, height etc. 2 big buckets of balls for $23. I pay $18 for 3 Ball bags at Hidden Hills (Grass range). Blue Sky gives you way more balls than Hidden Hills.

Great Course

Great course, practice range equipped with Top Tracer, and friendly staff! The course itself is pretty wide open. Not to many hazards and is good for someone who may be starting out or not to great (like me). Not too many chances to lose a ball or hit sand. I will play this course again and recommend to anyone.

In great shape

Really enjoyed my round today. I can tell they have been working hard to get this great layout back in shape. Will start playing there more often. I also noticed the cart attendant wiping down the carts with disinfectant after the round. I was glad to see that during this COVID-19 stuff.

Blue Sky fairways and greens are lush

Great round overall. Tees were way up, which was a surprise. Also, we got stuck behind a five some after the turn. I’ll be back but will be careful about starting time to try to avoid slow pace.

First time at Blue Sky

I thought the course was in okay shape (greens pretty good, fairways had a lot of unsanded divots, as did tee boxes). Pace was a little slow, but that might be because it was a holiday (MLK day). Layout was nice, but right beside an airfield, so while not terribly distracting, it was also not idyllic.

Ok

Needs to be a ranger to enforce etiquette when it comes to letting a two some play through a SLOW four some. No cart girl all day, 90 degrees out with NO water jugs either. Other than that, course was good.
