    Birkdale is the perfect example of why I hate the current state of golf. They charge $65 for a course that is very green, but plays pretty terrible. The course looked great- very green, not many issues in the fairways or tee boxes, and greens looked decent from the fairways. In reality, if you missed a fairway at all, you were probably not finding your ball because of isolated dirt patches that shoot your ball way off line, or thick bermuda rough that wasn't that thick at Quail for the PGA. The greens were incredibly soft and a hair furry (read: slow). I had heard a lot of good stuff about Birkdale, and later this summer I might give it another go, but I am not impressed with the $65 round Sunday.

Bermuda vs Bent Grass

By The B-Man on 5/6/21

As more Charlotte area courses convert over from Bent Grass to Bermuda grass on their greens, I found this article that talks about this trend in the Pinehurst area. It explains why courses are switching and the differences between the two surfaces. A Bermuda Revolution
