    If you haven’t played The 500 Club since its renovation and rebranding, go play it now. The course is in great shape. In particular, the Bermuda greens were really good and rolling very quick. The bunkers were very good and consistent (and raked! Compare to my earlier review of Skybrook’s bunkers).

    The layout is very challenging, with lots of hazards and high grass where you can lose shots. So your mileage may vary on whether you like it. I appreciate the challenge and stayed out of trouble for the most part. I would like to see better hazard markings though. The high grass on Nos. 2, 3, and 4 and the trees/brush on Nos. 6, 7, 8, 9 should probably be marked as hazards to speed up play.

    There are many holes with some dramatic elevation changes: holes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 18, in particular. They can create some blind shots. So make sure you know where the group is in front of you before hitting! The GPS on the carts is helpful and fairly accurate.

    A few notes about the amenities: there is no driving range but they have 2 simulators inside that you can warm up on. They are building TopTracer simulator bays outside that should be done later this year. They also have a cool putting course just outside the clubhouse that is lighted at night where they frequently have live music.

    The sports bar upstairs with the 2 simulators is awesome! Great place to meet and hang out before or after your round.

    If you want to go play a premium course and make a day of it with your friends to hang out afterwards, The 500 Club is a great spot for it.

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...
