Tee boxes - above average Fairways - excellent Greens - below average Played the course more times than I can count in the last 5 years. The greens were the best the crew can make them, but more than half of them have dead spots. They put the flags in the best spots,...
3 July – Played Warrior for the first time. Pretty impressive. Course was in great shape, greens, tee boxes, everything. Well worth the drive. Playing partner walked on and shot four over, the annoying b@$t@rd.
4 July – Olde Sycamore – Was in it’s usual immaculate shape. Of the 30 or so public/semi-private courses I’ve played in this area, I think this is the nicest and also the most difficult.
5 July – Tega Cay. Second time I’ve played here. I think it’s a very nice course but it is another one that doesn’t believe in bunker maintenance. I’ve noticed that about several courses in the area.
12 July – Skybrook – Played here several times and it’s always in great shape but it’s also one of those courses that could use a little more bunker maintenance. It is on the Carolina Trail now but not part of any of the packages. Not sure what the deal is there.
13 July – Stonebridge – Nice course but it is a haul from Huntersville. Again, bunker maintenance. How hard is it to go in, turn over the bunkers and rake them smooth. I don’t get it. I know, I know, if you don’t hit into them you won’t have that problem. Whatever.
Playing Pinetuck on the 18th and Eagle Chase on the 19th. I’ll write up something about Pinetuck next week.
