    Let me start by saying this is one of my favorite courses to play.Being a senior ,the course is challenging but not too long.The fairways were really good with no bare spots and good grass,maybe not “lush” but very good.The traps were raked with plenty of sand ,I know because I found enough of them.The tees were grass covered, but maybe a little too long in places and the rough was fair,thick but not too deep that you lose balls.
    The bad part were the greens.They always seem to have issues here.They repaired some of them this spring and they grew in well,but now they have major issues again.Lots of large bare areas and sporatic small areas.They just can’t keep these bent grass greens alive down there is the heat we are having.
    The course is trying to up their memberships so they can be a more “upscale” course-higher fees- but it “ain’t gonna happen”until they switch greens to champion bermuda or mini verde.
    The new management that was brought in has a tough job ahead.They want more income,but can’t get more players with the greens issues and also the location.If they raise rates,they will lose some of the players they have now.I drive from Concord,because I like the layout and the rates are reasonable for the quality,excepting bad greens,but with a rate increase ,I will not be returning as often.
