    Made the 90-minute drive down to Edgewater and since a lot of people weren’t there, got my round done in 3:10, never ran into anyone in front of us and was never pushed from behind. I was a refreshing from 5-hour rounds recently.
    As for the course it self, I’m old-school in that the best courses are ones where you can a) walk and b) the next tee is near the green of the hold just completed. I knew going in that wasn’t the case here since it is 7.2 miles to get around and very hilly, but it’s still a great course.
    The tees (I played the gold tees – 6571 yards) and the fairways were in great shape. You really have to control your ball off the tee and keep it in play, which I did OK at even though my ball-striking was a bit off.
    The bent grass greens were definitely stressed out from the heat, with the ones with the fans in poorer condition with patchy grass, ball marks and some kind of plant I couldn’t identify on those. Fortunately, they didn’t seem to be in my line at any time so I was lucky there. The greens that were more in the open were in much better shape, but all of them rolled well. Also, the black flags on some of the holes were almost impossible to see against the backdrop of trees, I could see the yellow flagstick easier.
    The other point of contention was difficulty in getting yardages. There are 150 and 100 stakes in the fairways, but knowing how far it was to the corner of doglegs or how far it was to lay up to on par-5’s was total guesswork. Also, not knowing how deep a green is made for a little more guessing as well. And it wasn’t always easy to find a sprinkler head (they are marked) in some places.
    Still, it was a very enjoyable round at a great pace for a good price on a challenging course.

The August issue of my email newsletter is out today with a report on Charlotte's public courses with Bentgrass greens. Spoiler alert: some are not doing so well in the summer heat. Also, I make a last call for anyone who'd like to go to Whistling Straits and Erin Hills...
