I’ve been reading some good reviews about the upgrades to this course, including the addition of the Diamond Zoysia greens so it’s been on my list of courses to play.
Today it got checked off. I had a 12n Tuesday tee time and the weather was perfect for golf. When I got there at 11am to hit some balls off the driving range, I learned it was closed for some repairs. The Pro Shop guy said I could go ahead and start if I was ready so I did.
This course plays very well. The fairways are in great shape and the course is wide open for the most part. There are some narrow fairways but maybe just a couple. There are just a few holes that leave you with a blind shot on the doglegs.
I’ve never played on Diamond Zoysia so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Just about a month in to the install and they still have a ways to go.
It’s almost like playing on green and silver sand with a little grass thrown in. It was very difficult to get a read on your putts.
I especially liked the Par 3’s on both sides, very accessible and set up nicely.
I especially liked #18 which they consider their ‘signature’ hole. Which is 524 yards from the White tees. You have to go over a little creek to a landing area and then over a little pond to the green. It’s visually appealing and wide open with all the water.
There were several tee boxes that were in pool repair and in some cases just no grass at all, just bare dirt. That was disappointing to see.
They get $32 riding for a Sr during the week which isn’t bad.
Their carts are gas and they keep them all clean and are following COVID guidelines. All the Staff I came in contact with were friendly and professional. Shout out to Gary who gave me some guidelines on some of the holes.
I would highly recommend this course.
