— Not counted in TCS™, but just as important (imo):
- Pace of Play: Slow to Moderate.
Layout: I quite like this course. In fact, for Utah, a state full of mountain golf, this links style around some bogs/lakes is very appealing (especially for the high desert of Utah). Compared to an Engh or Fazio, it lacks something, but it’s a very nice round of golf.
Conditions: I’ve been saying much about the drought conditions here in Utah in my recent posts, all of that still holds and there were some dry spots out there, but given the state of global warming this course was in very very good shape. Not perfect, but it plays like a course that is well taken care of at the $40 per round range.
The staff: The festering twat in the pro-shop was quite dismissive and snooty! Granted, I rolled in about 5-min from our tee time, but there’ s no need to be rude about being “already called to the tee” insert the snooty voice of your choice here. We went straight out and were on pace++ for the entire round. We did NOT make anyone wait on us. So, take a chill-pill “bruh,” good thing the course was nice otherwise, I wouldn’t be back. The folks in the snack shop in the main clubhouse (at the turn) were very very nice. Lovely, even. So, thank you!
Value: $39 for 18 included a logo ball. High value, but I’m docking some for getting the “attitude from the ass-hat-clown” that rang me up for the round, and it’s just not a 9 anyway. $35, would be a 9, and $30 would be a 10 with the current conditions and layout.
It was a fun and beautiful round of golf with Chase and Isaac. Can’t wait to play the other 9, soon.
We missed our fourth, Orley!
