Rode the Blues (6642/70.8/112) in less than 3H as a single in breezy, overcast conditions around 60.

Par 72 layout with five par 3/5's. You start out with two straight par 5's and later have two straight par 3's on the front. You have played three par 5's before your second par 4 which is very unique. Like the layout with numerous dog legs and some of the largest greens I have ever played on. However, the playing conditions are WELL below average.

Probably because it is a links style course, the tee "boxes" are just mowed down areas in the rough. They are a mixture of grasses, winter thin but few unfixed divots. Mostly level and decent.

The fairways were a winter thin mixture of grasses and had good coverage.

The primary rough was winter thin, mowed down and not much of a factor except for unlevel clumps. The secondary rough had been recently cut down but was quite punitive because the straw/grass was just left there in rows about 1' deep. Really easy to lose balls in it.

Most of the traps are now grass bunkers. They are large and have some of the thickest grass on the course in some of them, while others were mowed down much lower. The few actual sand traps are in terrible condition.

The greens had been punched about 3 weeks ago. They looked bad and putted as poor as they looked. Many had large brown areas and a few had dirt spots. They putted bumpy and slow. The one positive was that they held well struck irons very well.

Quick and efficient check-in. I could have played 2-3 balls had I wanted, there was never a golfer within 3 holes of me. Pro Shop is a trailer, no Starter, Marshall or Drink cart. The gas powered carts do not have GPS. The course was marked every 50 yards old school. Could not recommend the course currently with these greens.

He would not play this course again.

Greens were punched a week or so ago and have not been mowed in probably 3-4 weeks. Fairways still have a number of winter thin areas. Tee boxes are in good shape as is the area (skirt) around the green. Range balls need replacing as 1/2 are severely weathered and cracked. I'm not a fan of the gas powered carts.

I like the layout of this course as it winds around the many vineyards. The greens were in very good condition, however the cart-paths are rutted badly and the rough areas are overgrown. If you hook or fade a ball outside of the fairway, chances are good that your ball won't be found. The fairways are decent but could also use some attention.
