I'll come back with a report tomorrow when I'm done.

Didn't play so well today so hope tomorrow isn't another stinker.

Are you referring to the line of pines in the midle of the fairway? they are farked! 

 

Wiped the hole as seems as though there is a ball magnet installed in there somewhere. 


Because some idiots complain that my sig is too large:

Hey how was Metro?

 

 

love the place! 

 

Well conditioned and we played a day after the pennant teams. Greens were tricked up with pin positions still left over from Sunday. 

 

Very well appointed course and judicious bunkering throughout the course. 

 

Plenty of fairway bunkers at the 200-230 mark and greens were well guarded by bunkering as well. Good distance control from the irons is an absolute must, and just missing the greens would often result in a greenside bunker shot next. 

 

One of the best fairways I have played on. 

 

Regarding flatness, well it's not a links course so the undulations that you would find along the peninsula are non-existent here. Just a different character to the course which sets it apart and has the signature sand belt feel. I wouldnt say that the absence of rolling hillocks etc a detraction from the place as it well and truly made up for it in clever design.

 

Greens were slick and fast, yet can still hold an approach shot with a medium spin ball and rolled true. Need to be confident with holing putts because if you were too tentative, they had a tendency to take the prevailing break with less speed.

Would be such a better course if there were just a few bumps and humps along the way.  It can never get to the heights of RM or KH with the land it has, but does a decent job.

 

But they charge too much for their house wine!!!!!
