My first round here and I loved the course. Great layout and fantastic greens. They are Diamond Zoysia and were perfectly smooth and quick. The course gets an A for the greens alone. The original 9 holes is over 70 years old and has a great risk/reward mix, starting with the opening par 5, with an approach over water. Between the 1st and 2nd holes, there's some construction of condos going on and so it's walled off with black plastic. That's also made the 2nd hole a par 3 over water, as the construction is using that hole for runoff/retention ponds, where there was no hazard before. #7 is a great par 5 with a pond looming at the end of the fairway about 250 yds out and then an uphill climb to the green. Speaking of the greens, they are generally small. You can't have a putt over 60/80 feet on any green. With quick greens and some slopes, it can make putting and chips pretty tricky. This is a relatively short course with lots of scoring opportunities. The closing par 4 18th hole features a narrow landing area with a sharp dogleg right to the green which is perched on a hill next to the clubhouse. It was a fun round and I'll be back soon!
