    Mission accomplished! I broke 80 on the afternoon round of Skybrook’s Marathon Wednesday wherein one can play all day for $45. At my age, 36 holes is sufficient, and I still consider the special a good golfing value. The greens have just about grown in from the aeration on March 16 with some holes still noticeable, but the ball rolled pretty evenly on every green, and the speed was consistent throughout. The fairways are still brown, but were in good condition otherwise. I believe the bunkers still require some work, because each and every one I encountered was damp (I realize that it rained Monday morning, but the sun came out by noon, and Tuesday was sunny all day, so I believe that should have been sufficient to dry out the sand by Wednesday.) I get the impression that poor drainage may be the issue, but it might also help to replace the existing sand-clay mix with the white, fluffy sand extant at many other local courses. Still and all, Skybrook is a challenging course that can provide enjoyable rounds at economical prices.

  • Congrats! Now you will have to change your handle to yesibroke80! I’m trying to break 80 myself – have had a couple 81’s so getting close. Thanks for the report on Skybrook, I like the course and they have really been making it better, and I’m afraid soon the bargains will be gone.
