First time in a while playing South Creek.  Conditions were wet as we've had a lot of rain recently.  Course was as follows:

Tees - Good

Rough - Good to very good.

Fairways - WET.  Quagmire.  Driving a cart over them would have caused the cart to get stuck.  Had to move the ball around to find a good place to hit it.  The fairways weren't cut, but I can understand why because it was so soggy.

Bunkers - Wet.  You can tell they cared for them but they still need some time to dry up.

Greens - Very good on the front.  Back were good.  Two greens had some problems but they had the pins away from the tracks or whatever was going on.  

Cart Paths - Need some work.

It's a fun course.  Tight in spots, some interesting holes, #10 is a standout.

It should be drier over the next week or so and I would expect South Creek to dry out and be in really nice shape.  MBN is a good facility and I would imagine it will be really nice later this week once it dries out.

The 10th hole at Southcreek is a long par 5. A dogleg turning right. Except for a long hitter, it is difficult to make a birdie on this hole.

Thanks for sharing your report.

A favorite course of mine to play

Unfortunately for me, a lot of the guys I play with can  hit that green in two including Quevy and A08. It's a great Par 5 and a risky shot over the water for a long hitter - but plays fair for us shorter hitters around the lake with a good look at the green from 100 to 120 yards

Thanks for the update, it is a great course to play. I wish we had some of that rain up here, we are bone dry.
