My first time back at CGL in a while since my experiences and your reviews have varied widely over the last few years. Overall, the course is in good shape. The greens, especially, were solid and cut low and fast with no major issues on any holes. The changes they’ve made — I assume to cut down on delays during play — are not that aesthetically pleasing, since they removed trees and bushes and changed the views, and they’ve made the course easier. The effect is that about 1/2 of the holes are forgettable and not very challenging (#1, #10, #11, #13, #14, #15 especially). I was surprised the course was not very crowded after 3pm on a Friday and we were able to finish while taking our time. Another thumbs up for the beverage cart which made the rounds several times up til about 6:30pm. All in all, I had low expectations going in and they were exceeded. I won’t go out of my way to play here, but it’s just so darn convenient and at least now I know the conditions are decent.
