This Course on a Bad Day is Better than Most
We played here the day after some heavy rain, but the course had drained well. We were Cart Path Only most likely to protect the emerging grasses.
Fazio has designed this course in a valley. All the holes are below the cart paths.There is a lot of hill climbing when you are CPO.
The bent greens were amazing. There are rumors that this club will go the way of Bermuda greens like most others in the area.
Fazio doesn't leave much out of his designs. There's water, as in lake and meandering creeks.
There are huge bunkers all over this layout.
Bunkers were deep and greens were tricked up.
Hole #2 is the #1 handicap hole. It is long and has a Resaca in front of the elevated green. When you clear the ditch, you are not given any mercy unless you do it by at least 20 yards. The fairway slopes down into the resaca. When you hit your shot at the pin on hole #2 it lands on the green and scuttles right off the green to the back right.
This is a great course and a nice test of all the clubs in your bag.
Which Way Does It Blow George
This is a really pretty course! Excellent cart paths and amenities. Bunkers are real sand and maintained well.
Fairways are generous, if you land your ball in the right places. Greens did not receive an approach shot well, but did roll true and fast. There is not a flat green on the course. The tee boxes were level and in good shape for this time of year. The fairway turf is a lttle thin, so the tight lies were plentiful. Just wait a couple months though and this course will be a real treat.
