Ended up playing The Witch on Thursday .

I had heard real bad reports all the way up till Wednesday  ,when I overheard a conversation about The Witch bad conditions. Most were saying it was on it's last leg.

But that is not true. The course was in overall good condition.

The greens are the old Bermuda,  but the were in very good shape... all green full grass , rolling super smooth and a 9 on the stimp. The greens are smallish, but accept approaches nicely.

Fairways were generally good but sometimes your ball will find a bare spot.

The tee boxes on the back nine had virtually no grass, but I use a tee on 18 holes and that didn't really bother me. The tee boxes are flat. You can tee up anywhere and get level ground to phit from

FLATTEST tee areas I've seen in a while.

The rough was fine, sand average.

Cart paths were better than average. 

The gators were big 

The bev cart girl - and everyone else that worked there- were very friendly. I will post a lot of photos starting on the 1st hole and go to 18.

I'm giving The Witch 2 thumbs up

I talked to 3 people that work there about the future of the course.

The general consensus is the course is not sold. They don't know if the property can be rezone.

It could be 2 years  before anything happens, but they expect to one day get a call telling them not to come to work the next day

Its one of most scenic courses anywhere . Nature, beautiful trees and no homes on the course make this course a must play.

It will hurt to lose this one similar to the Heather Glen loss

Looks like someone took a free drop

This big guy was on the 4th or 5th hole

I have a new respect for the back 9. A lot of good holes. And only one hole runs along a busy street. Its #12 i think and it sort of brings you back to reality and then you go back to seclusion for the last 6 holes...

It's good that you got another round in at The Witch, just in case. 
 
Thanks for the photos and including #9.

A very fair report on the Witch, and your pics are fantastic, I will miss this course if it does end up closing.  Thanks once more for your report.

Such a fun and challenging layout with a great variety of holes.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

Good to read the positive update. The Witch was one of my Dad's favorites. I'll have to get out and play it when we're down at the end of the month.

Your photos are fantastic. I like to play this golf course. If possible, i will try to replay this one before the rezoning.

Golf is a game. We play it. Somewhere along the way we took the fun out of it and charged a premium to be punished.- - Ron Sirak

It's a fun course that at times you can have to yourself.  No, you are not playing the Dunes club but a solid track none the less.  As soon as it cools a bit and the bugs go away I will be playing the Witch.
