Greens were recently aerated and so fees were discounted to $25 for 18 with cart. Even with the aeration the greens were okay, though I'm sure the bumps cost me at least 3 strokes. With the discount, I'll call it a wash, but I would give it another 1-2 weeks. There were no special instructions or any changes to the flagstick / cup -- I've seen a few other courses either put a filler in the cup to discourage touching of the flagstick or raise the cup above ground so all you have to do is hit the cup to count it good (Ballantyne is doing this). The course was very wet even with what I think was just overnight rain and so it was cart path only. All in all the conditions were just average, but I'm sure that'll improve with the greens healing and perhaps some dry, warm weather. One course layout note -- they've opened a new tee location on the par 3 #4 hole that is about 50 yards left of the original tee. I like it. It's more visually appealing and gives you a better view and angle to the green, though it's a more direct carry over the water. Check out the picture I posted on Instagram to see it.
