Played on Memorial Day. Red and White Nines. There are new colors for the T markers but no description or information on the color scheme. So if you accustomed to playing from the Whites and continue with that you'll actually be playing from the Red. The new White is Green/Gold. Experienced golfers can figure this out but not newcomers. My biggest problem with this course is there is no indication on the green flags where on the green the flag is positioned. This is a simple fix that all other courses use. No excuse for this oversight. The rough appeared to be uncut for a couple of weeks. If you are in the rough you lose your ball. The fairway in White 2nd hole was perfect. Of the rest were similar this would be a wonderful course.
