Comments

Subette: The grass in the fairways and on the range was in excellent condition. The greens were also smooth, but very hard and quick. Was difficult to keep the ball on the green. Can play very hard if not able to land the ball where you need to off the drive. Holes 16, 17, 18 called the “three hole challenge” for a reason. On a clear day, the mountains provide a gorgeous view in the distance.

Comments

DufferDoc: A spectacularly beautiful course in the foothills of the Rockies, with sculpted fairways and greens (ala a private course) – this course is awesome! Playing at almost 6,000 feet altitude, the ball does go farther! But, we walked and those hills are a real challenge.
