JD – wouldn’t it be the other way around? I teed off at 3:30. You’re stalking me! 😛
I didn’t see any problems with the bunkers, but I was only in one all day. What did you see?
As for ballmarks on the greens, two things: 1) it didn’t seem any worse than other public courses in the area that get lots of play and 2) I was able to fix the ones I saw and they never disrupted my putts – so they were healing well. Again, your mileage may vary. So you might have gotten the worst of it. And being backed up, you probably noticed more of them.
We teed off around 3:30 and finished before 7:30 as a threesome. So pace of play was fine for us. Again, sounds like the (bad) luck of the draw.
Okay, okay. No more stalking. ; )
To answer the bunker question — packed down sand that hadn’t been raked in a long time. One bunker I saw (but avoided) had rocks and hard-packed dirt, not sand. They could use a little raking and maybe some new sand in some spots.
