Walked the Blues (6299/70.5/123) in 4H, 10M twilight in sunny, breezy conditions around 70. Played on their B-Day week of special, thanks Chalk Mountain! Played 9 with Doug and Pat, both 86 year olds who were delightful playing partners. First time here in 7 years. VERY hilly course, very challenging to walk, especially in very windy conditions. You will rarely have a level lie on this course after you leave the tee box. The tees were reasonably level, had good coverage and were well maintained. Probably the best part of the course. The fairways were decent. Good coverage for kikuyu. The rough is well, pretty rough. Mixture of weeds and multiple different grasses, mostly mowed down to 3" relatively close to the fairway. 10 yards off many fairways, it looked like the rough had not been mowed or maintained in months. Calf to almost waist deep, almost certain lost ball and no way to play it even if you found your ball. The sand traps were mediocre. Mostly thin, with patches in each trap I was in that I would call good. The greens looked good, but putted medium slow to slow. Very undulating with few ball marks, they held irons well. Numerous holes where shaping the shot was required. The customer service was okay, as were the range facilities. They had old school 100/150/200 yard markers only. Overall, the quirky layout has more good holes than bad... but they have several holes here that I would call funky. Too many for one course. At best average playing conditions coupled with a below average layout means that I won't be playing here for at least another 7 years.
Challenging course, excellent value
Great location with good views. Challenge to all players and can't beat the value in the late morning, early afternoon. Staff is alway nice.
