    I try to play here when I can, but it’s sometimes difficult to get tee times. They get quite a bit of member / local play and don’t start tee times until 8am. I kinda feel like an outsider here since I’m not a regular. So I can’t say the course / staff is overly welcoming. I did manage to be the first one off today and the lady let me go at 7:45, but several holes were still being watered, well after 8:00 too. So I had to dodge waterfalls on a few holes. The course is in really good shape, but I’m not a huge fan of the greens here. Only one had issues (#12 with bare spots being repaired) and the rest were nicely manicured. The problem is that the greens have a very pronounced grain where your uphill putts are extremely slow, downhill putts fast and almost every putt has alot of break. So it was difficult for me to make even 5-10 footers consistently. Tees, fairways and bunkers were all in good shape and I do enjoy the layout (which should play really easy, but there are some tricky holes and OB stakes). Fore warning — they are aerating the greens over the next couple of weeks. So it may be late June before you want to come back if you don’t get out there in the next week.
