    Don’t be shocked at the green fee – $45 was for a “Marathon Wednesday” (play all day) promotional offering. My goal was to do just that – play all day – so I started at 7:20 in the morning. I learned many things from this experience, some of which are: (1) my stamina is not what it once was, and I could only make it through 45 holes (2) as the B-Man has recently noted, Skybrook is a very challenging course, and (3) the new management appears to be intent upon making this a first rate course, paying attention to many details both on and off the course. Course conditions were near excellent. Greens started out rather slow due to a heavy dew, but quickly dried and became quite fast – balls rolled very true under both conditions. Almost all of the bunkers (at least the several that I visited) were fluffy sand, but too many “golfers” (I use that term loosely and begrudgingly)that preceded me neglected to rake them. The one, poor course condition was that about half of the fairways had been recently aerated (primarily on the back nine), and I was frequently penalized, rather than being rewarded, for hitting the fairway. I stopped for lunch after 27 holes, and enjoyed a tasty sandwich platter with chips and fountain drink for $7.50. I heartily recommend the course and promotion to all who are interested in a good golfing value. I just hope that not many will take advantage of it such that it will become difficult for me to get a tee time.

FYI - Tega did a deep verticut earlier this week and didn’t have it mentioned on their website. Rode down there today to get a road round in while Skybrook recovers from aerating only to be completely disappointed. Got a rain check at the turn…give it a couple weeks...
