Played Eagle Chase for the first time yesterday. I had heard about the elevation changes, but I wasn't expecting as much as I saw. If you're a straight hitter, you'll have no problems here. If not, plan on losing balls. The Bermuda rough can be brutal, and if you get in...
Played Red Bridge on Saturday (10/3). I’m into my second year of occasional golfing, so take my comments with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, I thought this course was far more difficult than it needed to be.
The fairways are narrow, most holes are surrounded by woods on either sides, plenty of elevation make for difficult shots (they don’t have hole maps yet either), and there’s thick stuff everywhere. The rough right off the fairway is always thick. Greens moved fast and there’s no such thing as a straight putt on this course. The course caps off with a par 5 614 yards on the white tees.
I don’t mind a challenge, but for an occasional golfer looking to have fun and score well…look elsewhere…or be prepared to lose plenty of balls. I suspect they’ll eventually make s!
ome changes, but it’s a monster right now.
