    The layout is still a favorite of mine, pretty much a mountain course with elevation changes on almost every hole. The course conditions were okay and certainly playable. However, most of the fairways have serious issues that remind me of the winterkill that Rocky River suffered a couple of years ago. The impacted fairways (I lost track but it’s easily half) are basically bare dirt with no grass. In some cases, we gave ourselves a better lie on the few blades of grass we could find near our ball but that was a challenge. I didn’t get a chance to chat with the pro shop about what was going on. Greens were good. Speed was good even though they were just a bit bumpy. I didn’t notice any major problems so I’d expect the greens will be in good seasonal form very soon. The bunker issues of the past 2 years seem to be resolved. I didn’t have a problem with any of the ones I visited. Tee boxes were mixed but no issues affected play. It’s just those fairways — they are an eyesore and you’re better off being just off in the rough. Also, if anyone ever figures out how best to play the tee shot on #10, I’m all ears. I despise that hole!
