They also closed Mira Mesa for a long time to rebuild the greens. I was hoping that they'd completely redesign the ninth green there as it is an OK green for a 100 yard wedge shot, but the hole plays 180 yards. I've hit a few perfect shots into that green and every time, have been over it. I'd fix my ball mark on the front edge of the green and pitched the ball from behind it. And once again after closing the course for rebuilding, the greens are as bad as ever.
The greens at Hilltop aren't any better than they were 2 weeks ago. They were punched and top dressed. I'm amazed at how a golf ball can bounce like it's rolling on cobblestone. Oh well.
