Fairways were Ok, I again had a lot of tight lies, but Ok. The greens were horrible. Something has happened to them. It was like putting over a jigsaw puzzle the way the ball hopped and bounced. A lot of them were half dead ?? Oh well, on to another course next week.Read The Review
We had a 12:00pm tee time for Sunday afternoon, got there early and the starter kindly let us go off 30 minutes before our tee time. It was a sunny but windy day on the course. Greens were in good condition for this time of year. I don't think they have punched yet so if you are planning to play there i would call ahead to see if they have or are going to punch them soon. Fairways were in decent shape, some starting to green up and just need those warmer 70 degree temps at night before they really take off. Bunkers were hit or miss. Some tees still thin and they will come back once growing season starts. The course was busy but pace of play was right on time being a Sunday afternoon. Definitely worth playing and a friendly staff as well.Read The Review
Back at Monroe where the greens are still just about perfect. They are quick and tricky, but not crazy fast as I've seen 'em before here. They are the best part of the course. The rest of the conditions were not that impressive for April. Fairways were just okay, fairly thin. Rough was erratic -- in some places it was bare and thin, in others it was overgrown with weeds. The lies around the greens, sometimes just 5 or 10 yards off, were sometimes not good. For the price and with near perfect greens, Monroe is always worth playing. I'm wondering how it will fare this year, with PGA Master Pro Nick Jacobi having left for Stonebridge. I'm sure I'll be back this summer.Read The Review
Usually my go to course, Stonebridge was not up to par. The fairways haven't grown in yet so most lies were tight. I'm poor with those. Also the greens had been punched recently and it was like putting over gravel. It should be back to normal in a month or so. Play was steady and crowded.Read The Review
