Default Fairways- not so much

Yes, greens at Havana are good right now but the deplorable condition of the fairways should give anyone second thoughts about playing on the course. There is no grass! Its like hitting off concrete.

Now that most greens are in pretty good shape the annual aeration schedule begins this month on all courses.

Our group played Hemingway/Kilimanjaro last Thursday and it was in great shape. Riley Grove/Cherry Hill today and it was in great shape.

Our group has played Hacienda, Belle Glade, Lopez,Bonifay ,Evan's Prairie and Tierra del Sol in the last week and if I were to rate the conditions Hacienda would be clearly the best followed by Tierra del Sol, Evan's Prairie, Belle Glade, Lopez & Bonifay. Lopez was the least fun my guests and I had. We played Hacienda ,in under 4 hours but it took a little over 5 hours on Lopez. The foursome in front of us held us and everyone behind us up. The ambassadors were useless

We played Bonifay Friday and the greens were slow, bumpy and inconsistent. But over the past few weeks we've found the greens at OBH, TDS and Hacienda to be really good. My problem with the greens is the huge difference between what you find on the practice greens and the courses. Only Hacienda had consistency from the practice green.
