Hot dry weather have made the fairways rock hard but overall the course was in very good shape. Greens fast as ever but in near perfect conditions. Real sand in the bunkers. Tee boxes had the normal wear and tear. Nice layout overall for the course. Staff was super friendly...
I wouldn’t dump any kind of money into a Trail membership. They are already in very poor financial condition. What makes you think they are going to be around for the long haul? Plenty of other great options out there, just search this site, visit courses, and even look at some of the privates. If I had an extra $12k laying around, I could think of many more ways to spend it on golf related costs. Just my $.02.
