Forgot to mention a big plus about the course facilities...

This place has one of the nicer, if not the nicest, short game practice area that I've seen so far!

One very large chipping green with extra room outside of it on all sides; another smaller chipping green that's a little flatter; one of the largest putting greens I've seen with plenty of different slopes around it and lots of little flags all over; and a generously sized hitting range (mats) with plenty of large, full buckets of range balls sitting out.

Nice!

 

 @cksurfdude.  I only wish I had taken more advantage of the practice area!  My game could of used a bit more fine tuning on the range.

haha right? I needed the time in the morning for stretching, back roller, a little yoga. And coffee!

Related - I was happy to be able to drive down, play 18 two days in a row, drive back and not feel too too terrible after!

This can be a bad thing though; not mentioning any names…. @Getoffmylawn…..but you might hit too many, get tired, and start shanking shots during your fitting 🤣   On the positive side, it might help you hit the ball better during your next round.   

Damn, so much for “what happens in Queenstown stays in Queenstown.”

But, all true.  Lesson for all other spies:  if you want a quality fitting, probably best not to show up an hour early, spend the last 30 minutes of that hour beating fairway woods DeChambeau style, then show up to your fitting panting and drenched in sweat!  🤣🤣

In my defense, I beat balls for another hour AFTER the fitting too, and while I didn’t play all that well the next day, the shanks were gone.

You didn’t need to hit balls for hours to sweat let’s be honest you just had to walk outside

Putting practice well that left a lot to be desired. No golf shoes, or sneakers no respect. Sandals and flip flops = stinky feet to the open air. And that where my air is 2” off the ground.

Hmmm maybe that's why you turned half blue out there ...

If I had Jim look at my swing earlier I would have joined as well to get the swing changes underway to keep them from creeping in on Sunday.

Just an FYI for those following along who were not a part of the outing; here are the scorecards and layouts of each course ...

20220809_150817.jpg.ece1fd269dc85eb2790ee792d6b53810.jpg

Both are great courses .. a variety of holes and challenges. Personally, imo, I felt the River had a little better layout / flow.

Lakes was great, but .. with the caveat that you need to fit the holes & routing into the real estate you have available, they did a nice job but it seemed a little chopped up / sectioned off to me; eg. you'd play three or four holes then drive a few minutes with to the next section, and so on...

But again both are definitely worth playing for anyone in the area, or thinking of traveling to there.

And if you find a sad, homeless yellow ball in the weeds or the reeds, please pick him up and give him some TLC.. 🤣

So the pevailing thought among locals about the two courses.  The River is by far the attraction and better of the two courees.  But that said, if the River didn't exist and you only knew of the Lakes course, you would think it's a damn fine course and worthy of play.    

I guess it's the Jan to Marsha 😉

There's definitely a lot of eye candy on the Rivers course with the Chester River in many of the backgrounds that frame the holes. Jan to Marsha is a great description!  I did like the lakes course
