Over all conditions were good, but bumpy greens were a drawback. By July, they should be smooth in our opinion. We're kind of wondering about the age/shelf life of GG's greens? They look fine from a distance, but they are considerably bumpier than others we hit in the last 30 days.
Nice mature course from a classic designer. They do a lot of landscaping to enhance your visual experience. Seems short from anywhere other than the tips.
Reportedly $75 on the weekend.
We hear they have a good restaurant.
