I really like this course and the facility. I just wish they’d disclosed that the green had been airated last week. Putting was kind of a joke.

I got to play on a crazy windy day, teeing off after work and racing daylight, so I was trucking around trying to finish (not taking any pix this day).

I like the place, an Arthur Hills design, who has some nice places to his credit. (I highly recommend Washington County Golf in Wisconsin). Conditions are very consistent - I would have been more inclined to give 5 stars (and probably would later in the year) but the greens had been punched. I know this is a necessary thing, but no one told me during my visit that I'd be encountering this; I do think they should. Otherwise, a lot of big greens with some undulation (slowed by rain, punch today). Tee boxes are mostly flat and in good condition, and the fairways and rough are very fully-grassed. They've created some fun elevations changes, which I enjoyed. I only hit 2 bunkers, and it may be a function of this time of year, but they were a bit weak - both times they seemed thin on sand. Maybe the rain did this; it was a minor detraction. The par 5s are very gettable from the white tees, so that's a good chance to score. A few holes are much more fun the second time around, 6, 7 and 11, all position tee shot holes, are fun. The par 3s had serious wind a few times, which made them harder than they really are; outside of that they're pretty tame.

I like 17, a great driving hole and design, but 18 is kinda weak to finish your day. A lot of very friendly rough around here, and had I not been playing into a 3 club wind (seriously!!), I could have scored 5-8 shots better, but I got out of there in 2.5hrs and shot 84, so no real complaints.

Overall a very solid facility, if not a stunner in design. I find them very consistent on conditioning (which can't be overlooked) and would definitely be good returning or playing here regularly if I lived here.

Given the challenging weather and amount of rain over the last few months the course was in very good shape. Bunkers were a little rough but pretty much in line with early spring expectations. Playing off Blues this early in the season was probably not a good decision based on wind conditions and combined skill level of our group but overall a good experience.

The only complaint I had was with pace of play. we teed off at 2:10 and by the 3rd hole we were waiting anywhere from 5-10 minutes -- especially on the tee box. didn't finish the round until after 7 PM. Our cart died on the 17th hole and we had to walk the last hole which added a little time but we didn't tee off 18 until almost 6:50.

The slow pace was unusual based on the last few times I played this course and can probably be attributed to the windy conditions but would have been helpful to see marshals out on the course keeping everyone closer to expected pace.

Looking forward to getting out there again in a few weeks when the weather stabilizes.

The problem with my round is that it took 5 hours, the courses rangers need to take some initiative to warn slow groups or accommodate groups behind them.

The course is known for always having heavy winds. If you do not have a reliable knockdown shot I would avoid this course. I would not call this a links setup. Its true that the course has few trees but there is a ton of water. Most of the bunkers are not that penal but due to the wind you need to be very accurate of the tee. High ball hitters will struggle on this course. Based on the usual conditions I feel the course design is too tricked up.
